Colts | Adam Vinatieri expected to return

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 11:09:36 -0800

The Indianapolis Colts are working on a deal to re-sign impending free-agent PK Adam Vinatieri, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Ignore Viantieri's age (43). He's still one of the more efficient kickers in the NFL after making 92.6% of his boots in 2015. He's no longer an elite fantasy kicker, but he's not far off once the bigger names are selected.

Colts | Adam Vinatieri to play in 2016

Tue, 09 Feb 2016 10:27:48 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent PK Adam Vinatieri said he plans on playing a 21st season in the NFL and maybe more. Vinatieri will be 43 when training camp starts in August. Vinatieri is expected to re-sign with the Colts, too. He missed just three field goals in 58 attempts in the last two years with Indianapolis. Vinatieri is also third all time in made field goals (503).

Fantasy Tip: Age is just a number, right? Vinatieri remains one of the NFL's most efficient booters, and his fantasy value should remain high in Indy, especially with Andrew Luck expected to return healthy and boost the offense's potential.
