Cincinnati Bengals PK Mike Nugent will compete with PK Zach Hocker for the kicker job during training camp, but Hooker likely will need a perfect camp to win the starting job.
Fantasy Tip: Nugent has been a solid kicker for the Bengals over the last six years and should win the job again during training camp. The Bengals have one of the better offenses in the NFL, which makes Nugent an attractive option for fantasy owners.

St. Louis Rams PK Zach Hocker (thigh) and PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and are listed as probable for the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.

St. Louis Rams PK Zach Hocker (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 10, for the second straight day.
Fantasy Tip: It's looking unlikely that Hocker will kick against the Detroit Lions this weekend. He already wasn't a very strong kicking option in traditional leagues. Leave him on the waiver wire.
Wed, 09 Dec 2015 17:19:34 -0800
St. Louis Rams PK Zach Hocker (thigh) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 9, while PK Greg Zuerlein (hip) was a full participant.
Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Zuerlein could return to the kicking duties this weekend against the Detroit Lions. But with the Rams defense failing to move the ball much at all, neither kicker in St. Louis is worth playing in traditional formats.

St. Louis Rams PK Zach Hocker (quadriceps) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured quadriceps, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.
Fantasy Tip: The Rams added Hocker a few weeks ago because of an injury to Greg Zuerlein, but his status is now in doubt because of his injury. Owners probably should avoid Hocker and look for other options to use.

Free-agent PK Zach Hocker (Saints) is signing with the St. Louis Rams Saturday, Nov. 28, incase PK Greg Zuerlein (groin) is unable to play, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Zuerlein's status will need to be monitored leading up to tomorrow's game with the Cincinnati Bengals. If he can't play, Hocker is worth a pickup for anyone in need of a kicker or for anyone who owns Zuerlein.
Wed, 28 Oct 2015 14:36:36 -0700
Free-agent PKs Zach Hocker (Saints) and Randy Bullock (Texans) worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Fantasy Tip: Jason Myers appears to have some competition for the starting kicker position. Whoever wins the job will be kicking in a fairly high-scoring offense, so they'll be worth a look on FantasyScore.
Mon, 19 Oct 2015 09:27:51 -0700
New Orleans Saints PK Zach Hocker is being released Monday, Oct. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Hocker made just nine of his 13 field goal attempts this year and also missed one of his 12 extra-point tries. Drop him anywhere you own him and look for another booter.
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 05:22:34 -0700
New Orleans Saints PK Zach Hocker could be in danger of losing his job as the Saints are trying out kickers Tuesday, Oct. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Hocker missed a 30-yard attempt in Week 4 but nailed a 51-yard try. He's a midrange option at the position right now.
Tue, 08 Sep 2015 11:58:51 -0700
Free-agent PK Nick Novak (Chargers) won't be signed by the New Orleans Saints at this time. They could in the near future, however, if PK Zach Hocker struggles.
Fantasy Tip: There are better options at kicker Hocker, but either he or Novak could be worth a pickup if one of them cements themselves as the starting kicker.
Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:26:44 -0700
New Orleans Saints PKs Zach Hocker and Dustin Hopkins have kicked well during practice and the preseason games and remain in a close competition for the kicker job. Head coach Sean Payton said the final preseason game will be important for both players.
Fantasy Tip: Hocker and Hopkins do not have a lot of experience in the NFL, so whoever wins the kicker job may not be a great fantasy option despite playing for a team with a good offense.

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 06:33:00 -0700
Washington Redskins PKs Kai Forbath and Zach Hocker will compete for the starting job in training camp. Forbath has the early edge because of experience, but the rookie Hocker has done well on field goal attempts so far in offseason practice. Forbath also has spent the offseason working on kickoffs.
Fantasy Tip: The winner of the battle still will be reserved to waiver wire territory.
Sat, 17 May 2014 13:48:59 -0700
