  • Rex: Dan Carpenter 'needs to kick better'
    Speaking Tuesday, Bills coach Rex Ryan said K Dan Carpenter "needs to kick better."

    Advice: Carpenter converted 34-of-38 field goal attempts in 2014, but is just 2-of-4 this summer. He's also missed an extra point. Carpenter's Week 1 roster spot is secure, but he can't afford a slow start. The Bills are keeping Jordan Gay as a kickoff specialist. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:00 am

  • Steelers trade 6th-rounder for K Josh Scobee
    Steelers acquired K Josh Scobee from the Jaguars in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

    Advice: With Garrett Hartley suffering a potentially serious injury in the third preseason game, the Steelers needed to add another option. They also lost Shaun Suisham to a torn ACL in the exhibition opener. Scobee has been the Jaguars' kicker since 2004. Jason Myers should take over the kicking duties in Jacksonville, while Scobee suddenly becomes fantasy relevant in Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:30 am

  • Jags willing to trade a kicker?
    Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union believes the Jaguars could be open to trading one of their two kickers.

    Advice: The Jaguars are unlikely to keep both Josh Scobee and Jason Meyers when the roster shrinks from 75 to 53 in a few days. Both players have had good preseasons and could be swapped for late-round picks. The Steelers could be interested in acquiring a fresh leg. Shaun Suisham went down with a torn ACL in his first preseason game while Garrett Hartley is nursing a hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:59 am

  • Hartley (hamstring) doubtful for Week 1
    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said K Garrett Hartley's availability for Week 1 against the Patriots "isn't looking good."

    Advice: He suffered a hamstring injury Saturday against Buffalo and is headed for an MRI. Hartley signed earlier this month after going down with a torn ACL. It's been a rough camp for Pittsburgh kickers. Free agent Jay Feely worked out with the Steelers on Friday and could be the team's best option with Hartley sidelined. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:31 am

  • Bucs sign Connor Barth
    Buccaneers signed K Connor Barth, formerly of the Broncos.

    Advice: Barth was cut by the Broncos earlier in the day. He's resurfacing in Tampa Bay, where Barth will be the favorite over Brandon Bogotay and Patrick Murray. Those who drafted Barth in early best-ball leagues can take solace in the fact that he'll be kicking at all this year. We'd also advise those best-ball leagues to eliminate the kicker position. All fantasy leagues, for that matter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:57 pm

  • Broncos release K Barth, leaving McManus as K
    Broncos released K Connor Barth.

    Advice: Barth loses his roster spot to new LG Evan Mathis. Signed in November last season after Brandon McManus' early-year struggles, Barth went 15-of-16 on field goals and nailed all 15 extra points. With McManus performing well in camp and preseason, Barth is out of a job. The Broncos will keep him on speed dial should McManus falter again. Owners that drafted Barth can pick up McManus.
