Fantasy football free agents: One-week plays

Lawrence Tynes, PK, New York Giants
It's Tynes to pick him up

The following fantasy football pickups are for those who need injury or bye week replacements. They are not players you immediately acquire - unless your team is in dire straights. Some have, however, shown some life and should be followed in case they materialize as options beyond their temporary use.

Lawrence Tynes, New York Giants (86 percent)

Frequency of kicks? Not his strength: Tynes is just 6-for-8 on the year with 20 extra points. His long? 30 yards. So why add him? The Giants face the New England Patriots in Week 9; the Pats have allowed 2.33 FGAs and 2.00 touchdown toppers per contest over their last three. The Giants should be able to move the ball through the air, which should set Tynes up more frequently than he's used to.

Josh Brown, St. Louis Rams (75 percent)

The Arizona Cardinals have yielded 3.00 three-point tries and 3.33 extra-point attempts per contest over their last three. Their pass defense has been dreadful, which has allowed teams ample chances to line up their boots for contributions.

Brown's Rams didn't have much success moving the ball before their unexpected explosion versus the New Orleans Saints in Week 8; he has tried just 10 field goals on the year, but he has missed only two. This is a far less formidable opponent on the docket that should allow ample kicking points.
