The Steelers have placed K Chris Boswell on IR with an undisclosed injury. Boswell struggled throughout the season, connecting on just 13 of 20 FG attempts and 43 of 48 XPs. He'll be a free agent this offseason. Pittsburgh signed K Matthew McCrane to replace Boswell. McCrane went just 5 of 9 on FGs with the Raiders earlier this season, so we'd lean against using him in Week 17 fantasy lineups.
Steelers K Chris Boswell (abdomen) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bills. He put in a full practice on Friday, and insider Mark Kaboly confirms that Boswell is expected to play on Sunday. He's not a recommended fantasy starter, though, in what's expected to be wintry conditions in Buffalo.
Steelers K Chris Boswell has been added to the injury report with an abdomen issue. He's officially questionable to play against the Giants on Sunday. Pittsburgh signed K Randy Bullock, though, which means they don't expect Boswell to be available. Avoid this situation in Week 13 fantasy lineups.
The forecast for today's Steelers-Browns game calls for a 30% chance of snow with winds of 27-29 mph and gusts up to 40. That wind is a significant concern. We'd avoid both kickers and downgrade the passing games, especially the guys who rely on downfield stuff. Bang it here for updated projections for the Steelers and Browns.
The Steelers have moved on to their 4th kicker of the year. The released Josh Scobee on Saturday and signed Chris Boswell. Scobee, of course, missed a pair of 4th-quarter FGs in Thursday night's loss to Baltimore and had clearly lost HC Mike Tomlin's trust by OT. Scobee missed 4 of 10 FG attempts overall with Pittsburgh, plus an extra point. Boswell spent training camp with the Giants this year and worked out with the Texans in 2014. He has yet to attempt a regular-season kick in the NFL. Boswell did hit 4 of 4 FG attempts in the Giants' final preseason game. He made 76.1% of his FG tries over 3 seasons at Rice. Pittsburgh had traded for Scobee after losing Shaun Suisham and Garrett Hartley to IR.
