The Eagles have signed K Jake Elliott, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He'll replace K Caleb Sturgis, who's heading to IR with the quad injury he suffered in the opener. Sturgis reportedly had a shot to return later this season but shouldn't be on fantasy rosters. We'd avoid Elliott this week, but he could become a spot-start option down the road.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the Bengals will release rookie K Jake Elliott, meaning that veteran Randy Bullock has won the kicking job. Cincinnati drafted Elliott in Round 5, but he connected on just 4 of 7 FG attempts in the preseason, including a pair of misses in Thursday night's finale. Bullock went 6 of 7 and made both of his extra-point attempts. He originally joined the Bengals in December, when they dumped K Mike Nugent.
The Bengals have released K Jake Elliott. It's a bit of a surprise Cincy spent a 5th-round pick on him this spring. But the Bengals are rolling with veteran Randy Bullock. He's a fine fantasy option in what should be a productive offense.
