Harrison Butker Gets Favorable Week 17 Draw

Sunday, December 31, 12:21 AM

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker joined in on the team's uncharacteristic woes in last Monday's 20-14 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, sinking both of his extra-point attempts but missing his lone field-goal try. Butker had been flawless on kicks from last year's Super Bowl up until Week 14 of this season, but the 28-year-old has now missed two boots in his last two weeks. With K.C.'s scuffling offense netting just 19.4 points per game through their last eight contests, Butker has secured a single-digit fantasy outcome just twice over this period. The Chiefs next welcome in the Cincinnati Bengals, who have surrendered the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing kickers on the campaign. Butker should be treated as a top-10 choice in Sunday's plus draw for title-hopeful fantasy rosters.

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.
