Steelers | Shaun Suisham cut

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 07:05:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham (knee) was released Friday, June 24, with a failed physical designation. PK Chris Boswell enters training camp as the likely starter.

Fantasy Tip: Boswell should be an upper-middle kicker option in fantasy since the Steelers' offense is so potent. However, they've sent messages that they could attempt two-point conversions often. That could hurt Boswell slightly.

Steelers | Pittsburgh could trade a kicker

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 10:52:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PKs Shaun Suisham and Chris Boswell will be competing for the kicker job during training camp, but the team may look to trade one of the kickers before the start of the regular season, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler.

Fantasy Tip: Boswell may have an edge over Suisham entering camp because he is cheaper, but owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Both probably will have jobs in 2016 and should both be decent options in deeper leagues.

Steelers | Chris Boswell expects competition

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:02:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Chris Boswell said he expects to compete with PK Shaun Suisham (knee) for the kicker job during training camp. Boswell may have an edge over Suisham because of his lower salary.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the preseason because the winner of the competition should be a solid fantasy option.

Steelers | Shaun Suisham aims for training camp

Tue, 31 May 2016 19:58:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham (knee) will not kick until training camp. The goal is for Suisham to compete for the starting job, but PK Chris Boswell might have a leg up in the competition due to his performance last season and his low-priced contract.

Fantasy Tip: Suisham might be on the outs in the Steel City unless Boswell completely tanks in training camp and the preseason, but if he is healthy he might not have a difficult time finding a job if it isn't in Pittsburgh. Fantasy owners in seasonal formats will want to watch the situation closely.

Steelers | Shaun Suisham may not return

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 14:00:58 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers PK Shaun Suisham may be on the roster bubble because he is scheduled to count $3.5 million against the cap in 2016, while PK Chris Boswell is scheduled to count only $565,000 against the cap.

Fantasy Tip: Boswell played very well after signing with the Steelers a few weeks into the season. He probably is the favorite for the job entering next season and will be a popular fantasy option because of the team's offense. Suisham probably would be able to find a job with another team and could have some value.

Steelers | Chris Boswell to work out for Steelers

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 14:17:04 -0700

Free-agent PK Chris Boswell (Giants) will work out for the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Oct. 3, according to a source. PK Josh Scobee has made only three of his seven field goal attempts from 40 to 49 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Scobee may be on a short leash after missing two field goals in Week 4, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. The Steelers kicker may not be the best option while Ben Roethlisberger is out of the lineup.

Texans | Houston auditioning kickers

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 05:50:24 -0700

Free-agent PKs Nick Novak (Chargers), Kai Forbath (Redskins), Chris Boswell (Giants), Connor Barth (Buccaneers) and Giorgio Tavecchio (Raiders) are auditioning for the Houston Texans Tuesday, Sept. 29, according to sources. Texans PK Randy Bullock missed a 43-yard field goal and an extra point during the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Bullock is clearly on the hot seat, but the tryout may also just be a means of motivating the incumbent, too. Seasonal players will want to take a wait-and-see approach and stay the course until there is an official announcement. The Texans are averaging two field goal attempts per game through the first three weeks of the season, and the Houston defense projects favorably most weeks, so the job has value, especially in the right matchups.
