Ka'imi Fairbairn Activated From Injured Reserve

Saturday, December 16, 4:20 PM

Houston Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn (right quadricep) has been activated from injured reserve ahead of Week 15 versus the Tennessee Titans. This move was widely expected after he practiced in full all week long and did not carry an injury designation into the weekend. While Fairbairn ranked as a top-12 kicker when healthy earlier this season, he's not a reliable fantasy option this week. With C.J. Stroud (concussion) out, Case Keenum is expected to quarterback the Houston offense. This is a significant downgrade at quarterback and, along with the absence of Nico Collins (calf) and Tank Dell (leg), could make it difficult for the Texans to move down the field. Managers can leave Fairbairn on waivers until Stroud returns to the fold.

Daniel Carlson Healthy For Week 14

Sunday, December 10, 12:45 AM

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson nailed both extra-point attempts and went one for two on his field goal attempts in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders kicker was on the injury report earlier this week with an illness that caused him to miss practice on Thursday, but he logged a full practice on Friday. Carlson was removed from the injury report before their Week 14 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Playing at home will benefit Carlson as he won't have to deal with the weather factor. Carlson will be relied upon in what should be a close game on Sunday.
