The Vikings have signed K Kai Forbath to replace K Blair Walsh. Forbath has drilled 84.1% of his FGs across 4 NFL seasons. He's not much of a fantasy option, though, on Minnesota's 32nd-ranked offense.
The Saints on Tuesday released K Kai Forbath and signed undrafted free agent rookie Wil Lutz, according to multiple reports. Forbath had seemingly beat out Connor Barth, who has since replaced Robbie Gould with the Bears. Lutz connected on just 69.2% of his FG attempts over 3 years at Georgia State. He spent camp and the preseason with Baltimore, going 2-of-3 on FGs and making his only extra-point attempt. New Orleans presents a good situation for a fantasy kicker, but the team's insistence on cycling through marginal kickers in recent seasons has largely kept the position from delivering in fantasy.
Redskins K Kai Forbath (groin) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Jaguars. He'll reportedly test the bum groin on Saturday, and we should know if he'll play Sunday based whether Washington adds a K to its roster. Regardless, we'd avoid Forbath in Week 2 fantasy lineups.
