Connor Barth Fantasy Football News 2019

The Bears cut K Roberto Aguayo. He missed his only FG attempt in 3 preseason outings with Chicago. Connor Barth will handle kicking duties for the Bears but isn't a recommended fantasy pick on a shaky offense.

The Bears have claimed K Roberto Aguayo. We'll see if the 2016 2nd-rounder can figure things out in Chicago, where he'll compete with K Connor Barth for a job. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts right now.

Winds of 20-22 mph are expected for today's Bears-Giants game. That definitely hurts both Ks and is just enough to impact the passing games. We've adjusted our projections for this game a tad. Click here for updated rankings.

The Bears have signed K Connor Barth to replace K Robbie Gould. Barth was just dumped by the Saints after hitting both of his FGs tries and 1 XP this preseason. He connected on 23 of 28 FGs (82.1%) for the Bucs last year. Chicago's offense projects to be no better than middle-of-the-pack, though, so Barth is a mediocre fantasy option.

The Saints have signed K Connor Barth.  After hitting 23 of 28 attempts (82.1%) for the Bucs last year, he’ll compete with Kai Forbath for the job. The winner should supply some matchup fantasy value kicking for a solid Saints offense.

The Bucs have signed K Connor Barth.  He was released at final cuts in favor of Kyle Brindza, who proceeded to miss 6 FGs and 2 XPs in 4 games.  Barth connected on 84.3% of his FGs with Tampa Bay from 2009 to 2012.  He went 15 of 16 with the Broncos last year.  He's a more stable option for the Bucs, but you should be able to do better for your fantasy squad.

The Bucs have released K Connor Barth, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  That leaves Tampa with Ks Patrick Murray and Kyle Brindza.  Continue to avoid this situation in fantasy drafts.

The Bucs signed K Connor Barth on the same day he was released by the Broncos.  Consider him the favorite to beat out K Patrick Murray, but you should avoid both guys in fantasy drafts for now.

The Broncos have released K Connor Barth, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  They needed to make room for the recently signed G Evan Mathis.  It's still a surprising move, though, considering Barth nailed 15 of 16 FG attempts in 5 games with Denver last year.  Brandon McManus, who Barth replaced, is now back atop the depth chart.  McManus went just 9 of 13 on FGs last season.  Despite the Broncos' high-scoring offense, McManus is a shaky fantasy option.

The Broncos have signed K Connor Barth, according to insider Jeff Legwold.  Barth beat out Jay Feely in a competition to replace Brandon McManus.  Barth last kicked for the Bucs back in 2012, connecting on 28 of 33 FGs.  He sports a solid 84.2% conversion rate for his career.  Unfortunately for his fantasy prospects, he figures to be kicking more XPs than FGs in Denver.  McManus ranked 30th in the league with just 13 FG attempts through 11 games.

The Bucs have released K Connor Barth.  He missed all of last season with an Achilles injury and was due $2 million in 2014.  The moves leaves Tampa with K Patrick Murray atop the depth chart.  The undrafted free agent has nailed both of his FGs this preseason, from 27 and 35 yards out.  We might still see the Bucs add a veteran such as Jay Feely or Rob Bironas.  Avoid the situation in fantasy drafts.

Buccaneers K Connor Barth will spend 2013 on IR after suffering an Achilles' tendon tear in a charity basketball game.  Tampa Bay has already replaced him with former Giants K Lawrence Tynes.  The new guy certainly looks like a downgrade.  Barth has made 84.2% of his FG attempts in his career, 86.5% as the Bucs starter over the past 3 seasons.  Tynes, meanwhile, has hit 81.5% career, including 83.6% over 6 seasons with the Giants.  Barth also carries the edge from long distance, nailing 12 of 19 from 50+ in his career.  Tynes has gone 11 of 21, including just 5 of 10 with the Giants.
The Bucs released 1 mediocre kicker today and picked up another, cutting Shane Andrus and then signing Connor Barth.  Barth went 10 of 12 on FGs for the Chiefs last year and doesn't have much of a leg.  He's not a fantasy option.
