The Falcons have released K Matt Bryant. The 44-year-old missed 5 of 14 FG attempts -- plus an XP -- in 7 games. He'll be replaced by K Younghoe Koo, who made just 3 of 6 FGs in his only NFL action with the Chargers back in 2017.
The Chargers have cut K Younghoe Koo. He connected of just 3 of 6 FG attempts, although all 3 of his misses came in the first 2 weeks. Los Angeles has signed K Nick Novak to replace Koo. The 36-year-old made 85.4% of his FG attempts for Houston last year and will be a spot-start option in plus matchups.
The Chargers are sticking with K Younghoe Koo, HC Anthony Lynn said Monday. The rookie missed the would-have-been game-winning 44-yard FG on Sunday. He missed a 43-yarder earlier in the game and had a 44-yarder blocked in the opener. Koo's leash can't be very long at this point. Find a safer option for your Week 3 fantasy lineups.
After releasing kicker Josh Lambo, the Chargers are poised to role with Younghoe Koo atop the depth chart. A UDFA from Georgia Southern, Koo made just 1 FG this preseason (27 yards). He went 3 for 3 on XPs. We’d take a wait-and-see approach here, but the Chargers’ loaded offense certainly provides fantasy upside.
