Bears bring back Santos | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Bears signed K Cairo Santos to a 5-year, $16 million deal. Santos finally gave Chicago stability at the position last season, drilling 30 of 32 FG tries and 36 of 37 XPs. His job security makes him a fine pick in early fantasy drafts.

Recent Shark Bites

The Bears signed K Cairo Santos. He'll compete for the starting gig with incumbent Eddy Pineiro. Avoid the situation in upcoming fantasy drafts.

The Titans have released K Cairo Santos. The move isn't surprising after Santos missed 4 FG tries in Sunday's loss to the Bills. That included misses from 33 and 36 yards out. We'll see who gets the next shot to fill in for Ryan Succop, who is on IR.

The Bucs have signed K Cairo Santos to replace K Chandler Catanzaro. Santos filled in for Greg Zuerlein in Los Angeles earlier this season, connecting on 5 of 6 FGs and 5 of 6 XPs. He'll be a viable fantasy option in the high-scoring Tampa offense. Catanzaro averaged 1.7 FG attempts and 3 XP attempts per game.

The Jets have released K Cairo Santos, who's been sidelined with a groin injury. Ks Jason Myers and Taylor Bertolet will duke it out for the Jets' starting job. Neither should be on your fantasy radar right now.

The Bears have cut K Connor Barth, who missed a game-tying FG at the end of Sunday's loss to the Lions. He's connected on just 69% of his FG tries this season. Barth will be replaced by K Cairo Santos, who's made 85% of his career FGs. He won't be much of a fantasy option in Chicago's 27th-ranked scoring offense, though.
