Gould converted three extra-point attempts but pushed a 47-yard field-goal attempt far right in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Though the game was played amid wintry conditions, the missed kick was one Gould probably should have knocked down. Incredibly, it was Gould's first attempt from the field since the Oct. 14 against the Falcons, as the Bears had trailed big at halftime in each of the previous three games, forcing them to pursue touchdowns in the second halves of those contests. With just 47 points in 10 games, Gould is on track to post the lowest scoring total of his 10-year career.

Gould knocked down two extra-point attempts in Sunday's 55-14 loss to the Packers.

With the Bears facing a big halftime deficit for their third straight game, Gould once again failed to attempt a field goal. The veteran has accumulated just 44 points on the season, placing him 31st in the league among kickers.

Gould made his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

With the Bears playing catch-up for the second straight week after falling behind 38-7 at the half, Gould saw the field for nothing but kickoffs after halftime. The team's huge deficit prompted coach Marc Trestman to bypass a pair of field goal attempts in the second half, instead choosing to go for it on two fourth-and-long situations in New England territory. In addition, the Bears elected to go for the two-point conversion on the two other drives they did punch in for touchdowns, resulting in Gould establishing a new season low of one point. With the Bears' offense no longer resembling anything close to the juggernaut many expected heading into the season, Gould doesn't make for an especially attractive fantasy kicker.

Gould knocked down both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

The two points were a season low for Gould, who has been handcuffed by an offense that hasn't lived up to its preseason expectations. Sunday's pathetic outing might have been the nadir in the Bears' season, and at this point, those who have held on to Gould are probably better served taking a week-to-week streaming approach at the position.

Gould made two short field goals but had one of his two extra-point attempts blocked in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Falcons.

Though more of the blame for the missed PAT resided with his blockers, Gould was effectively robbed of two points, as the Bears chose to go for two after their next touchdown to make it a 14-point game. Gould still hasn't eclipsed double-digit scoring in any week this season, and with the weather starting to get colder, his chances of racking up high point totals in a given week figure to only decrease from here.

The normally-reliable Gould missed his first kick of the season Sunday against the Panthers, shanking a 35-yard field goal attempt late in the first half.

Gould's miss seemed to spark a Panthers offense that had sputtered in the second quarter, as Carolina quarterback Cam Newton ran the no-huddle to perfection in the final two minutes of the half, finding Greg Olsen with 12 seconds left to give the Panthers some momentum heading into the locker room. Gould would rebound later in the game with a 45-yard field goal in the third quarter to give the Bears a 24-21 lead, but it wasn't enough to compensate for his missed opportunity early in the game. The 32-year-old remains one of the more accurate kickers in the NFL, but he's been unable to generate much fantasy utility thus far. He's scored just 32 points through five contests, which prorates to barely over 100 points over a 16-game schedule.

Gould hit his lone field goal attempt and both of his extra points in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

Gould remains a perfect 5-for-5 from the field and 11-for-11 on extra points for the season, but he's failed to crack double-digit scoring in any of his four games. He'll probably need the potent Bears' offense to show less efficiency in the red zone in order to see an increase in field goal attempts.

Gould converted field goals of 24 and 45 yards and nailed all three of his extra-point attempts in Monday's 27-19 win over the Jets.

Gould has kicked flawlessly through the Bears' first three games, knocking down all four of his attempts from the field to go along with nine extra points. Admittedly, he hasn't been challenged much, as he's only attempted two kicks over 40 yards and none over 50. Still, given Gould's 86.2 percent career accuracy rate from the field (third-best in NFL history), it's hard to dispute his standing as one of the most reliable kickers in the league.

Gould tacked on extra points on all four of the Bears' touchdowns in their Week 2 victory over the 49ers.

Thanks to the efforts of hulking goal-line threats Brandon Marshall (three touchdowns) and Martellus Bennett (one touchdown), the Bears were able to find pay dirt on each of their four trips to the red zone, preventing Gould from racking up more points. It's still generally a good thing for kickers in fantasy to be tied to productive offenses, so expect Gould to see more opportunities from the field as the season roars on.

Gould made all four of his kicks in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Bills, knocking down two extra points and two more from the field.

Entering his 10th NFL season, Gould seems to be getting better with age, as he's coming off a year in which he posted a career-best 89.7 percent accuracy rate from the field. His 2014 campaign is again off to an auspicious start, and the points should keep piling up if the Bears can stay healthy at the skill positions.
