Pros: His bullish leg tabbed him as kickoff specialist before he tried the kicker gig last year. The Cowboys' offense should put him in position for fantasy points often. Elements are somewhat controlled in Cowboys Stadium.

Cons: Can Buehler be accurate enough to be a full-timer? The 'Boys probably wouldn't hesitate to find veteran free-agent help is Buehler gags during training camp; kicker stability was a huge issue last year, and they won't be patient if they don't see progress.

Fantasy tip: Sure, in the last round, who cares? Though his job isn't safe, Buehler's strong leg and offensive support will make him alluring. Focus on taking another kicker with more job security and experience.
