Greg Zuerlein Offers Little Upside Against Patriots

Saturday, January 6, 1:46 AM

New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein made two of his three field goal attempts and converted on both of his extra-point tries in last week's loss to the Cleveland Browns. The 36-year-old's final showing of the season will come against the New England Patriots in Week 18. Although New England has been vulnerable to fantasy kickers this year, Sunday's contest is projected to be the lowest-scoring affair of the week. Back in Week 3, these division rivals combined for just 25 total points with Zuerlein attempting only one field goal and one extra point. Fantasy managers in need of a starting kicker this week should search for one in a better game environment than Zuerlein.

Eddy Pineiro Inactive Versus Buccaneers

Sunday, January 7, 11:42 AM

Carolina Panthers kicker Eddy Pineiro (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 18 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This news was widely expected after the Panthers listed him as doubtful heading into the weekend. The 28-year-old had appeared in Carolina's previous 16 games this season, converting 86 percent of his field goals. This week, he'll be replaced by Matthew Wright, who remains off the fantasy radar given the Panthers' ongoing offensive struggles.
