Joey Slye Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Shark Bites

The forecast for tonight's Colts-49ers game calls for a 100% chance of rain with winds of 20-30 mph. That's ugly -- and certainly enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We'd try to avoid both of these passing games outside of 49ers WR Deebo Samuel and Colts WR Michael Pittman. You should also stay away from both Ks.

49ers K Robbie Gould (groin) has been placed on IR. He'll miss at least the next 3 weeks and can be dropped from fantasy rosters. In a corresponding move, San Francisco signed K Joey Slye, who will kick in Sunday's game vs. Arizona.

Texans K Ka'imi Fairbairn (leg) has landed on short-term IR. He's out at least 3 weeks. Fairbairn will be replaced by Joey Slye, but you should be avoiding Texans kickers in fantasy lineups.

The Panthers have released K Joey Slye. No surprise there, as the team recently acquired K Ryan Santonso via trade. Slye, only 25, will likely resurface this season.

The Panthers dealt a conditional 7th rounder (2022) in exchange for Giants K Ryan Santoso. The 26-year-old hasn’t attempted a kick as a pro, but he’s reportedly fared well in training camp. We’d consider Santoso the favorite to beat out Joey Slye, who made just 80.6% of his 2020 FG attempts. For now, it’s a fantasy situation to avoid.

Panthers K Joey Slye has been activated from the COVID list and will kick against the Saints on Sunday. He's not a recommended fantasy play with Carolina 7.5-point underdogs in that one.

The Panthers have placed K Joey Slye on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Sunday's game against the Saints. We'll see who Carolina signs to kick this weekend, but plan on avoiding the situation in Week 7 fantasy lineups.

The Panthers have released K Graham Gano. That leaves the starting job for now to K Joey Slye, who connected on 78% of FG attempts and 87% of XPs last year. Carolina might still bring in competition if Slye struggles in August.

The Panthers have signed K Greg Joseph to their practice squad. K Joey Slye missed 2 XPs and a late 28-yard FG in Sunday's 3-point loss to the Saints. We'll see if Carolina gives Slye another chance or makes the move to Joseph. Avoid the situation in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Panthers K Graham Gano (knee) has been placed on IR. Since the team made the move before final cuts, Gano isn't eligible to return for the 2nd half of the season. That leaves undrafted rookie K Joey Slye atop the depth chart. He connected on 7 of 8 FG attempts this preseason, with his only miss getting blocked. Slye could be a spot-start option this season, but we'd go with a more proven K in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
