2010 Projected NFL/Fantasy Football Statistics
Pros: The 37-year-old can still plunk it, having hit four of six attempts of at least 50 yards since 2007. San Fran has given him 77 one-point tries over the last two seasons, and they're growing as an offensive unit.
Cons: He attempted just 21 three-pointers last year and had just 19 in '07. The Niners offense isn't well-rounded enough to give him a good cushion just yet. Nedney is becoming shakier between 40 and 49 yards, and his advancing age isn't primed to help one of the most common attempt brackets improve.
Fantasy tip: Nedney is steady, if not declining, but San Fran's kicker isn't a safe bet to make for weekly contribution. He's a decent option for an in-season filler, but there's no need to buy into him long term.
