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.

Younghoe Koo Will Kick In Week 12

Friday, November 24, 1:34 PM

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo (back) upgraded to a full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final Week 12 injury report. Koo will be active and kick for the Falcons despite not practicing on Wednesday with a back ailment. The Falcons even signed kicker Matt Ammendola as insurance earlier this week in case the 29-year-old Koo wasn't able to play this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Koo is one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL, as he's missed just one field-goal attempt and one extra point this year. However, due to the Falcons' sluggish offense and instability at the quarterback position, Koo has mostly been a low-end kicking option in fantasy lineups. Hopefully Desmond Ridder returning under center for Atlanta will help them move the ball more consistently.
