Stephen Hauschka Fantasy Football News 2019

The forecast for today's Redskins-Bills game calls for winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts around 30 mph. It won't be as windy as it was last week, but this is still enough to give slight bumps down to the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you were already avoiding Washington's passing game (including Terry McLaurin) in rookie QB Dwayne Haskins' 1st start. QB Josh Allen and WR John Brown remain fine plays on the Buffalo side. We'd try not to use either K in this game.

Bills K Stephen Hauschka (hip) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He sits outside the top 20 Ks in fantasy points and isn’t a recommended Week 15 play.

Bills K Stephen Hauschka (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 15 after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. Look elsewhere for your K.

The forecast for today's Bills-Ravens game calls for a 100% chance of rain and 15 mph winds with gusts up to 21 mph. This had the makings of a low-scoring, run-heavy game anyways, and this weather only makes that more likely. Try to avoid the Bills passing game. Ravens WRs Michael Crabtree and John Brown are still fine WR3s.

The Bills agreed to a 4-year, $12.4 million deal with K Steven Hauschka. He replaces K Dan Carpenter, who was released earlier this week. Hauschka owns a career 87.2% FG conversion rate and has topped 88% in 4 of the past 5 seasons with the Seahawks. Kicking in Buffalo can be a challenge late in the year, but Hauschka dealt with plenty of inclement weather in Seattle.

The Seahawks have signed K Blair Walsh. He's likely viewed as a fall-back option if Seattle can't agree to a new deal with impending free-agent K Steven Hauschka. Walsh has struggled mightily over the last 3 seasons, connecting on just 80% of his FGs and 90.6% of his XPs. He was cut by Minnesota this past November.

The Seahawks have re-signed K Steven Hauschka to a 3-year, $9.15 million deal.  He drilled 33 of 35 FGs in 2013, including an impressive 14 of 15 from 40+ yards.  Hauschka was a top 5 K in most fantasy formats, despite finishing just 10th in FG attempts.  He'll be a fine starting option again in 2014.

The Seahawks have placed K Steven Hauschka (calf) on IR.  It's a bit surprising since he was able to kick through the injury last weekend.  But Seattle must not trust him the rest of the way, especially on longer FGs.  They'll roll with K Ryan Longwell for the remainder of their season.  The 38-year-old sports a career 83.2% FG conversion rate, although he connected on just 78.6% with the Vikings last year.

Seahawks K Steven Hauschka injured his calf in Sunday's playoff win over the Redskins.  He was taken off kickoff duties but connected on FGs of 32, 29, and 22 yards.  We'll see if Seattle brings in some free-agent kickers this week for tryouts, but we're tentatively expecting Hauschka to be fine for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

The Seahawks have flip-flopped kickers, releasing Jeff Reed and adding Steven Hauschka.  Hauschka has hit just 16 of 22 career FG attempts (73%), and will be kicking for what could be one of the worst offenses in the league.  He's not a fantasy option.

The Broncos have placed K Matt Prater (groin) on IR, ending his 2010 season.  Steven Hauschka will handle kicking duties for Denver for the last 2 games.

Broncos K Matt Prater (groin) will miss his 2nd straight game this Sunday.  K Steven Hauschka will handle kicking duties against the Raiders but isn't a recommended fantasy play.

The Broncos have signed K Steven Hauschka.  He'll handle kicking duties against the Cardinals on Sunday with K Matt Prater dealing with a groin injury.

The Falcons have signed K Steven Hauschka.  He'll start this weekend with K Matt Bryant out with a hamstring injury.  Hauschka went 9 of 13 on FGs with the Ravens this season and is a serviceable fantasy option against the Bucs.
The Ravens have released K Steven Hauschka.  Monday night was a big game for him, and he missed another kick.  Hauschka missed 4 of 13 kicks this season, including 3 of his last 8.  The Ravens will likely sign Mike Nugent, Billy Cundiff, or Shane Andrus.
