Zuerlein out for the season | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Rams K Greg Zuerlein has been placed on IR with a back injury. It's a significant blow to a Super Bowl contender. Zuerlein has arguably been the best K in the league this year, connecting on 38 of 40 FG attempts, including 6 from 50+ yards. He'll be replaced by K Sam Ficken, who's never attempted a regular-season kick. He's gone 5 of 6 on FGs over the past 2 preseasons but connected on just 72% of his attempts at Penn State. We wouldn't mess with Ficken in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

The Cowboys have signed K Greg Zuerlein to a 3-year, $7.5 million deal. The 32-year-old had a down 2019, connecting on just 73% of his FG attempts. But he'd drilled 86+% in each of the previous 3 seasons and is a prime bounce-back candidate in Dallas' high-powered offense.

Rams K Greg Zuerlein is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. He's a shaky fantasy option.

Rams K Greg Zuerlein (quad) missed practice all week and is questionable for Saturday night's game against the 49ers. HC Sean McVay said Thursday that he expects Zuerlein to play but won't know for sure until he kicks on Friday. Avoid him in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

The Rams have released K Cairo Santos and will get K Greg Zuerlein back from his groin injury for Week 7. Zuerlein drilled 4 FGs and 3 XPs in his lone appearance this year after finishing 1st at his position in fantasy points in 2017. He's right back to being an elite fantasy option.

Rams K Greg Zuerlein suffered a groin injury during warmups prior to Sunday's game against the Rams and is questionable to return. The Rams went for 2 after their 1st TD and might be forced to do the same the rest of the way.
