Washington K Dustin Hopkins is dealing with a groin injury and is uncertain for Sundays game against the Lions, HC Ron Rivera said. Washington would turn to K Kaare Vedvik if Hopkins can't play. It's a situation to stay away from in fantasy lineups.
The Jets have released K Kaare Vedvik and signed K Sam Ficken. Vedvik missed a FG and an XP in the Jets' 1-point loss to the Bills on Sunday. Ficken made just 3 of 6 FG attempts in fill-in duty for the Rams over the past 2 seasons. Look elsewhere for your fantasy K.
The Jets have released K Taylor Bertolet and claimed K Kaare Vedvik off waivers. The Vikings traded a 5th-round pick for Vedvik in August but released him after he went just 1 of 4 on FGs in preseason action. We'll see how he fares in New York, but go with a safer K in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
The Vikings shipped a 5th-round pick to the Ravens in exchange for K Kaare Vedvik. That's a significant price to pay for a K. Vedvik isn't just any K, though -- he's a punter, too. The former soccer player has nailed 12 of 13 FG attempts over the past 2 preseasons while also averaging 47.6 yards per punt. It's unclear if Vedvik will kick, punt or do both for Minnesota. But we should avoid K Dan Bailey in fantasy drafts until we find out.
