The NFL's rule change that moved extra points to the 15-yard line is already making its mark. Four extra points were missed in Week 1. Only eight extra points were missed all of last season.
Fantasy Tip: The new rule certainly shouldn't be ignored from a fantasy football perspective. Kickers are mainly relied on for field goals, but missing extra points can have an impact. Eventually, they may not be used as much in favor of two-point attempts. This is something to monitor as the season progresses.
