Aldrick Rosas, New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers

It took many seasons for Sean Payton to trust his kicker to where if faced with a 4th down in opposing territory he’d often go for it instead of getting a field goal. Will Lutz was the kicker to change his mind. But we’re not sure if Payton has that comfort with Rosas just yet. Payton twice went for it on 4th down in Packers’ territory include a 4th and 7 at the Packers’ 41 yard line. That drive would eventually become a touchdown but it’s like Payton has slipped back into not trusting his kicker until he gets the offense into point blank range.

Squib Kicks

Joey Slye, Houston Texans – Slye got on the fantasy map against the Jaguars but he will be lucky to have half as many scoring drives against the Browns.

Josh Lambo, Jacksonville Jaguars – It might be a long year where Lambo sits in the waiver wire. Until there are some cherry matchups where we think the Jaguars could get into a shootout amongst fellow cellar-dwelling teams, leave him alone.
