Graham Gano Likely Out For The Season

Monday, November 6, 8:01 PM

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) needs surgery for a left-knee injury and is likely out for the rest of the season. The Giants officially placed him on Injured Reserve on Saturday. Veteran Randy Bullock was signed and eventually elevated to the active roster, but he didn't have a single kicking opportunity in the 30-6 Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The G-Men also added Cade York last week, but he was inactive on Sunday. In eight games for the Giants this year before his knee injury, the 36-year-old Gano made 11 of his 17 field-goal attempts and made all eight of his extra-point tries. Bullock and York could continue to compete for the starting kicking job on game days on Sundays, but fantasy managers should avoid the situation entirely.

Jake Moody A Reliable Play Versus Green Bay

Saturday, January 20, 12:52 AM

San Francisco 49ers kicker Jake Moody will kick off San Francisco's postseason run on Saturday night versus the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round. Moody's rookie season has been a success, even while ranking in the bottom of the league in field goal attempts due to his historic extra-point prowess. In Week 18 versus the Rams, Moody ended a streak of 60 straight extra points converted, an NFL record since the extra-point attempt was moved back to the 15-yard line in 2015. Green Bay's defense has been unspectacular lately, allowing 32 points to Dallas last week, which should put Moody in a position to put points on the board consistent with his regular season performance. The weather is expected to be moderately rainy with wind gusts maxing out at 20 mph and shouldn't be a big issue. DFS players unwilling to spend the extra cash on Justin Tucker should consider Moody a high-floor option, leading the tier below.
