Adam Vinatieri Fantasy Football News 2020

Colts K Adam Vinatieri will undergo surgery on his injured knee and be placed on IR, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. This could be the end of the line for the 46-year-old, who's missed 8 FGs and 6 XPs this season. Chase McLaughlin will continue kicking for the Colts.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. Recently signed Chase McLaughlin will kick in Vinatieri’s place.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (knee) is "unlikely" to play against the Bucs this weekend, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "You have to wonder whether perhaps we've seen a legendary kicker's final attempt in the NFL," Pelissero adds. Chase McLaughlin will kick for the Colts at least this weekend -- and maybe beyond.

The Colts have signed K Chase McLaughlin, who's made 13 of 17 FG tries with the Chargers and 49ers this season. It's noteworthy considering K Adam Vinatieri has struggled all year and was limited in Wednesday's practice with a knee issue. We'll keep an eye on this, but try to avoid the situation in Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that Adam Vinatieri will kick for the team in Week 3. Vinatieri seemed to suggest that he was planning to retire after missing his 2nd and 3rd XPs of the season in Sunday's win over the Titans. We'll see if he can turn it around, but Vinatieri shouldn't be in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri seemed to suggest to The Athletic's Stephen Holder that he's planning to announce his retirement tomorrow. Vinatieri missed 2 more XPs in the loss to the Titans after missing 2 FGs and 1 XP in the opener. The Colts would probably need to cut Vinatieri, so this would be a more ceremonious way for him to go out. Vinatieri turns 47 in December.

The Colts re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a 1-year deal. Now 46, Vinatieri will return for his 24th NFL season. He remained solid in 2018, hitting 85.2% of his attempts with a long of 54 yards.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (groin) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He got in a full practice on Friday, but Vinatieri still comes with more risk than usual in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (groin) is officially questionable for this weekend's game against the Raiders. He got in a full practice on Friday, though, so he should play on Sunday. It's a fine spot, but we might go with a K with a fully healthy groin in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that K Adam Vinatieri is dealing with a groin injury. That explains why the usually reliable veteran missed a pair of XPs in yesterday's win over the Bills. The Colts will work out Ks this week, so Vinatieri isn't a lock to play against the Raiders on Sunday. Look elsewhere for your Week 8 K.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Patriots. With Indy missing T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle, Vinatieri isn't a recommended fantasy play.

The Colts list K Adam Vinatieri (groin) as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. He returned to a limited practice on Wednesday after sitting out Tuesday. The Colts have yet to add a K, so we're expecting Vinatieri to play. But you might want to roll with a safer K in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri missed Tuesday's practice with a right groin injury. He was listed as a full participant on Monday. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or just got the day off. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

The Colts on Tuesday re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a 2-year, $6 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 41-year-old missed just 3 total FG attempts over the past 2 seasons, including only 1 of 8 attempts from 50+ yards. He'll remain a top-12 fantasy kicker come 2016 draft time.

The Colts have re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a 2-year deal.  The 41-year-old showed no signs of decline last season, connecting on 35 of 40 FGs, including 4 from 50+ yards.  Vinatieri finished among the top 10 Ks in most fantasy formats and will be a fine option again in 2014.

The Colts have re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a 3-year deal. The 38-year-old remains an effective kicker, having drilled 26 of 28 attempts last season. Vinatieri’s range has severely diminished, but the Colts high octane offense will keep his fantasy value strong. He’s a top-10 fantasy option.

Colts K Adam Vinatieri is participating fully in the team's OTAs this week.  A knee injury kept the 14-year veteran out of last year's playoffs, but it sounds like he's back to 100%.  On this offense, he's an elite fantasy option when healthy.  But we can't call a 37-year-old kicker recovering from a bum knee a safe pick.

Colts HC Jim Caldwell is leaning towards carrying both K Adam Vinatieri and K Matt Stover on the playoff roster.  Vinatieri's knee clearly isn't at 100% yet.  You're better off avoiding this situation in NFL Playoff fantasy leagues.
Colts K Adam Vinatieri is inactive for tonight's meeting with the Jets.  As expected, Matt Stover gets the nod over a banged up Vinatieri.
The Colts starting K was downgraded from Questionablle to Out on the team's official injury report.  Viniateri will be replaced by Matt Stover for the regular seaspon finale at Buffalo.
