The Colts have released K Chase McLaughlin. That's a bit surprising. He filled in for an injured Adam Vinatieri last year, making 5 of 6 FGs and all 11 extra-point attempts over the final 4 games. The release appears to leave rookie Rodrigo Blankenship as the winner of the kicker competition. All the reports we'd seen out of Colts camp had Blankenship not performing particularly well. This doesn't look like a kicker situation to target in your fantasy football drafts. But if you take a Colts kicker, make sure it's not McLaughlin.
The Colts have signed K Chase McLaughlin, who's made 13 of 17 FG tries with the Chargers and 49ers this season. It's noteworthy considering K Adam Vinatieri has struggled all year and was limited in Wednesday's practice with a knee issue. We'll keep an eye on this, but try to avoid the situation in Week 14 fantasy lineups.
The Chargers have released Chase McLaughlin, who kicked for them the past 4 weeks. It's unclear if L.A. will go back to K Ty Long or if K Mike Badgley is finally ready to return from his groin injury. Avoid the situation in Week 9 fantasy lineups.
The Chargers have signed K Chase McLaughlin. K Mike Badgley is expected to miss "a couple [more] weeks" after suffering a setback with his groin injury, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So L.A. will turn to McLaughlin, an undrafted rookie who connected on 44 of 59 FG attempts (74.6%) at Illinois over the past 3 seasons.
