Cairo Santos Fantasy Football News 2019

7:11pm EST 11/12/18

The Bucs have signed K Cairo Santos to replace K Chandler Catanzaro. Santos filled in for Greg Zuerlein in Los Angeles earlier this season, connecting on 5 of 6 FGs and 5 of 6 XPs. He'll be a viable fantasy option in the high-scoring Tampa offense. Catanzaro averaged 1.7 FG attempts and 3 XP attempts per game.

The Rams have released K Cairo Santos and will get K Greg Zuerlein back from his groin injury for Week 7. Zuerlein drilled 4 FGs and 3 XPs in his lone appearance this year after finishing 1st at his position in fantasy points in 2017. He's right back to being an elite fantasy option.

The Rams have released K Sam Ficken, who made just 1 of 3 FGs over the past 2 weeks. K Greg Zuerlein isn't ready to return from his groin injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, so we'll see who the Rams sign.

UPDATE: The Rams have signed K Cairo Santos. With a career 84.1% FG conversion rate, he'll be a viable spot starter for however long Zuerlein remains out.

The Jets have released K Cairo Santos, who's been sidelined with a groin injury. Ks Jason Myers and Taylor Bertolet will duke it out for the Jets' starting job. Neither should be on your fantasy radar right now.

The Jets have claimed K Jason Myers off waivers. Myers just lost the Seahawks' kicking competition to Sebastian Janikowski. In New York, he joins Cairo Santos, who's been sidelined with a groin injury, and Taylor Bertolet in the competition for the starting job. This is a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts until a winner emerges.

The Bears have cut K Connor Barth, who missed a game-tying FG at the end of Sunday's loss to the Lions. He's connected on just 69% of his FG tries this season. Barth will be replaced by K Cairo Santos, who's made 85% of his career FGs. He won't be much of a fantasy option in Chicago's 27th-ranked scoring offense, though.

The Chiefs have placed K Cairo Santos on IR after he aggravated a groin injury in Sunday's win over the Chargers. He'll be replaced by K Harrison Butker, who Kansas City just signed off Carolina's practice squad. The rookie could become a spot-start option down the line, but we'd avoid him in his NFL debut on Monday night.
