Dawson converted one of his two field goal attempts Sunday, hitting from 22 but missing from 53 in a loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

With just three field goals through three games, Chip Kelly's uptempo offense hasn't resulted in more scoring opportunities for the veteran kicker. While Sunday's 53-yard miss likely didn't negatively affect fantasy owners, a successful attempt would have gone a long way in saving an otherwise mediocre output.

Dawson was perfect Sunday, converting both of his field goal attempts (29 and 39) and all three PAT attempts in a 46-27 loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Dawson put up a solid fantasy game after not attempting a field goal in Week 1. The 41-year-old is a safe kicking option against Seattle next week.

Dawson did not attempt a field goal but did convert all four PAT attempts in Monday's 28-0 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Dawson was an intriguing kicking option coming into Week 1 with the 49ers not expected to have a strong red zone offense. That turned out not to be the case after San Francisco converted all four of their red zone appearances into touchdowns Monday, leaving the 41-year-old kicker with zero field goal attempts. Still, an uptempo Chip Kelly offense should provide Dawson with more scoring opportunities this season than he did under Jim Tomsula. His 27 field goal attempts last year were his lowest in a full season since 2001.

Dawson was 5-for-6 in field goal attempts this preseason. He converted all six PAT attempts.

EDGE Analysis

Dawson had a solid preseason and enters his third season as the 49ers' starting kicker. The team brought in undrafted rookie kicker John Lunsford, but he never threatened the veteran's starting role and has since been cut. Dawson could see an uptick scoring in Chip Kelly's uptempo offense.

Dawson converted both his field goal attempts, including a 50-yarder, in Sunday's preseason loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the 49ers bringing two kickers out of camp, Dawson is the unquestioned starter after hitting 24-of-27 attempts last season. He could see an uptick in value in Chip Kelly's faster-paced offense that may result in increased field goal opportunities.

Dawson agreed to a one-year deal with San Francisco, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dawson turned 41 in January and his range has never been better than average, but he remained a remarkably accurate kicker in 2015, making 24-of-27 attempts. If Chip Kelly sees to an uptempo offense of even modest success in San Francisco, Dawson should have a good number of field goal opportunities in 2016.

Dawson converted all four of his field goal attempts, including the game-winner in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

This was only the second time Dawson had attempted four field goals this whole season. The 49ers' stagnant offense limited his opportunities to score this season, but Dawson took care of his end and converted 24-of-17 attempts (two were blocked). He will be a free agent this offseason, but proved that he can still get it done even as a 40-year-old. Retirement would be the only reason Dawson isn't kicking for an NFL team next season.

Dawson was good from 40, but missed a 45-yard attempt in Sunday's 32-17 loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

While he is officially 20-for-23 on the year, this was Dawson's first missed field goal that wasn't a result of a block. They 49ers' stagnant offense has limited his field goal attempts this year, and that won't change next week against a stingy St. Louis defense.

Dawson had his only field goal attempt blocked in Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Dawson's only two misses this season have been due to blocked kicks. If he was a kicker for a more potent offense, he would have the potential to be a top-10 option with his accuracy (19-of-19 on unobstructed kicks). Unfortunately he plays for an inconsistent offense and has a low ceiling for fantasy value.

Dawson was good for 44 and converted his only PAT in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Dawson was perfect against his former team, but his fantasy day was limited by the 49ers' inconsistent offense yet again. With a tough matchup against the Bengals on the horizon, Dawson shouldn't be considered a top kicking option for week 15.
