Titans K Ryan Succop didn't practice on Wednesday. HC Mike Vrabel said afterward that Succop is dealing with tendonitis in his left knee. It's unclear if he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Eagles, but fantasy owners might want to roll with a healthier option in Week 4 fantasy lineups.
The Titans re-signed K Ryan Succop to a 3-year deal. The 28-year-old connected on 19 of 22 FGs
last year (86.4%) and hit all 27 extra point attempts. A lack of volume placed him 29th
in fantasy scoring, however, and it’s hard to see significant improvement in
2015. Tennessee's lackluster offense gives Succop minimal fantasy appeal.
The Titans have released rookie K Travis Coons and signed K Ryan Succop. The Chiefs dumped Succop over the weekend to save money, but he's connected on an acceptable 81% of his FGs over the past 5 seasons. You should be able to do better for your fantasy kicker, though.
The Chiefs have cut veteran K Ryan Succop in favor of cheaper youngster Cairo Santos. Each went 3-for-3 on FG attempts in the preseason, and Succop outperformed Santos on kickoffs. Unless Santos was the clear accuracy winner in practices, this seems like a money-driven decision. The Brazilian-born Santos kicked at Tulane, where he won the 2012 Lou Groza Award. We'd be wary of drafting him as a starting kicker right away. But, then again, it's not like you'd have trouble finding a replacement on waivers.
