K Rodrigo Blankenship has won the Colts’ starting job. Per Adam Schefter, the team waived veteran K Eddy Pineiro this morning. Blankenship was awesome last year — connecting on 32 of 37 kicks — so this move isn’t a surprise. He sits 6th in our kicker rankings.

The Colts signed K Eddy Pineiro to a 1-year deal. It's a curious move with K Rodrigo Blankenship coming off a strong rookie season (32 of 37 on FGs). Pineiro was out of work last year but connected on 23 of 28 FGs for the Bears back in 2019. Blankenship remains a heavy favorite to be the Colts' kicker in 2021, but he carries a bit more risk in fantasy drafts right now.

The Bears signed K Cairo Santos. He'll compete for the starting gig with incumbent Eddy Pineiro. Avoid the situation in upcoming fantasy drafts.

Bears K Eddy Pineiro (knee) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday after hobbling through this injury last week. Pineiro isn’t a recommended Week 4 fantasy play.

Bears K Eddy Pineiro (knee) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday after gutting through this injury last week. Pineiro figures to play vs. Minnesota, but look elsewhere in fantasy lineups.

Bears K Eddy Pineiro is active for tonight's game against Washington. He popped up as questionable after a right knee injury that he suffered in the weight room that limited his Saturday practice. Pineiro's situation obviously adds risk.

Bears K Eddy Pineiro is questionable for Monday night's game against Washington after a limited Saturday workout. 670 The Score reports that Pineiro suffered a minor right knee injury in the weight room but should be "OK" for the game, according to HC Matt Nagy. "We just want to be cautious with it," Nagy said. We would try to go a different direction for a fantasy kicker.

The Raiders have placed K Eddy Pineiro (groin) on IR and will roll with K Mike Nugent. The 36-year-old has connected on 83.9% of his career FGs. He might be a spot-start option this season, but you should be able to do better than Nugent coming out of your draft.

Raiders K Eddy Pineiro is sidelined with a groin injury, according to insider Scott Bair. Pineiro was thought to be ahead of Mike Nugent in the race for Oakland's starting job, but this injury could change that. Avoid the situation in fantasy drafts for now.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the Raiders have waived K Giorgio Tavecchio and signed K Mike Nugent to a 1-year deal. Tavecchio had been competing with Eddy Pineiro after stepping in for injured K Sebastian Janikowski as Oakland's kicker in 2017. Pineiro and Nugent will now compete for the 2018 job. That continued uncertainty makes either kicker a shaky option in current best-ball drafting. You're best off looking elsewhere.
