Cairo Santos Kicks Bears To Victory Monday Night

Tuesday, November 28, 12:31 PM

The Chicago Bears were unable to score a single offensive touchdown on Monday night against the division-rival Minnesota Vikings, but they got the win anyway by a score of 12-10 on the strength of kicker Cairo Santos' four made field goals. The 32-year-old veteran did miss one of his kicks but made the other four, including the game-winner with time expiring late in the fourth quarter. Santos wasn't at all on the fantasy radar this year until recently. In the last three games, he's seen a big boost in field-goal chances and has made 11 of his 12 field goals and all three of his extra points. Santos is still a bit of a stretch as a fantasy streamer at the position, but having quarterback Justin Fields back certainly gives him more upside.

Ka'imi Fairbairn Expected To Return In Week 14

Saturday, December 2, 12:31 PM

Houston Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn (quadriceps) is expected to be activated from Injured Reserve and return to kick in Week 14 against the New York Jets. Fairbairn is required to miss just one more game while on Injured Reserve due to a strained quadriceps. Matt Ammendola hasn't been very effective in the three games that Fairbairn has missed, but the Texans will roll with him for one more game this Sunday against the Denver Broncos in Week 13. The 29-year-old Fairbairn has been a top-five fantasy kicker in 2023 based on average fantasy points per game at 8.5. In eight games before his quadriceps injury, Fairbairn had made 18 of his 19 field-goal tries and all 14 of his extra points, so he will surely be back on the fantasy map when he comes off IR next week.
