Taylor Bertolet Fantasy Football News 2019

The Jets have released K Taylor Bertolet and claimed K Kaare Vedvik off waivers. The Vikings traded a 5th-round pick for Vedvik in August but released him after he went just 1 of 4 on FGs in preseason action. We'll see how he fares in New York, but go with a safer K in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Jets K Chandler Catanzaro announced his retirement on Sunday. The 28-year-old had reportedly been struggling in training camp and missed 2 XPs in the preseason opener. The Jets have signed K Taylor Bertolet to replace Catanzaro. Bertolet spent last summer with the Jets, connecting on all 4 of his FG attempts and 3 of 4 XPs in preseason action before getting cut prior to Week 1. Bertolet has yet to attempt a regular-season kick as a pro.

The Jets have waived K Taylor Bertolet, according to multiple reports. That leaves Jason Myers as the team's kicker, barring some further roster moves at the position. Myers appeared in just 6 games with the Jaguars last year after spending 2 seasons as their kicker. He finished each of those seasons 15th or lower in fantasy scoring.

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.
