The Cardinals have signed K Phil Dawson. He'll replace K Chandler Catanzaro, a restricted free agent who was not re-signed. Dawson turned 42 in January but has remained effective, drilling 85+% of his FGs in 4 of the past 5 seasons. He'll be a viable 2017 fantasy option.
The 49ers have re-signed K Phil Dawson to a 2-year deal. He was excellent last season, connecting on 32 of 36 FGs. One of those misses was a 71-yarder. And at one point Dawson made a 49ers record 27 straight FGs. He'll be a fine option for your 2014 fantasy squad.
The 49ers signed longtime Browns K Phil Dawson today. It's a move that should finally vault the veteran from the fantasy fringes to strong-starter status. David Akers dominated fantasy kickers in 2011 with San Francisco. Last year, he led the leage in FG attempts and finished among fantasy's top 10 despite missing an absurd 13 kicks. Dawson has connected on 84% of FGs in his 14-year career. Far more impressive, though, has been his recent work from long range. Dawson nailed 14 of 15 kicks from 50+ yards over the past 2 seasons.
Browns kicker Billy Cundiff was released on Tuesday. Regular kicker Phil Dawson is back healthy, leaving Cundiff job-less. Dawson isn't worth a roster spot in any leagues because of how terrible the Browns offense is.
