Mike Nugent has taken over as the Patriots kicker and is likely available in fantasy leagues
Finally, Week 5 saw the kickers who were projected to do well in terms of fantasy points actually do well. Dan Bailey and Justin Tucker led the kickers in terms of fantasy points. Cairo Santos missed four field goals and found himself cut on Monday. Stephen Gostkowski was placed on injured reserve heading into Week 5 and the Patriots signed Mike Nugent. Nugent missed one extra point in Week 5, but he made both field goal attempts. Any kicker on the Patriots is worth owning in fantasy and Nugent is available in about 75 percent of leagues. Look to grab him, especially if your kicker is on bye this week.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Chicago, Indianapolis, Oakland
