Eddy Pineiro Skipping Voluntary Workouts

Monday, May 20, 9:56 PM

Carolina Panthers kicker Eddy Pineiro continues to skip the portion of the team's voluntary offseason program, which has allowed undrafted rookie Harrison Mevis to shine during organized team activities. Mevis made all five of his field-goal attempts on Monday, including a long of 47 yards. Pineiro is the league's 21st-highest-paid kicker and is in the final year of his two-year, $4.1 million deal. "I'm sure Eddy has a plan for this whole thing," head coach Dave Canales said. The 28-year-old veteran missed the final two games in 2023 for the Panthers with a hamstring injury, but he's likely healthy now and should report for mandatory minicamp next month. Carolina's offense should improve with more offensive weapons in quarterback Bryce Young's second season in 2024, but fantasy managers in standard-sized leagues can avoid Pineiro on draft day.

Evan McPherson Not Productive Versus Cleveland

Sunday, September 10, 10:02 PM

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Evan McPherson nailed a 42-yard field goal during the loss to Cleveland on Sunday. However, he missed his following try on the next series. In all fairness, McPherson was the only person who put points on the board for the struggling Bengals offense, and the weather conditions weren't ideal, either. While the 24-year-old seemed to take a step backward last season, he's still one of the best kickers in the NFL. Fantasy managers should keep him starting in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens.
