Nick Novak K SD Oct 03 '11

Nick Novak has made all six of his field goal attempts as a Charger.

Novak went 4-of-4 in yesterday's win over the Dolphins, including a make from 48 yards out. With Nate Kaeding (ACL) done for the season, fantasy owners can look to Novak as part of San Diego's high-scoring offense.

New Chargers K Nick Novak made 15-of-18 field-goal attempts in the UFL last season.

Novak fell out of the NFL because of his 19-of-30 career mark on field goals in the majors. But he says he's perfected his craft and points to his success in the minors as evidence. We'd make Novak prove he's improved, but the Chargers seem convinced. He's someone to monitor in fantasy circles as part of San Diego's explosive offense.

Chargers agreed to terms with K Nick Novak.

Novak won out over Jeff Reed, Dave Rayner, and a mystery fourth candidate. He spent last year's training camp in San Diego, so the Bolts are familiar with his leg. Novak is 19-of-30 (63.3 percent) on field goals in four short NFL stints. He'll get plenty of scoring chances in the Chargers' high-scoring offense, but accuracy is his bugaboo.

Free agent K Nick Novak is a "strong candidate" to fill-in for an injured Nate Kaeding in San Diego.

In the league since 2005, Novak failed to unseat Nick Folk for the Jets' kicking duties during training camp. Just 19-of-30 lifetime on field goals, Novak would be a huge downgrade from Kaeding, but likely still worth a look in fantasy leagues thanks to the offense he would be kicking for.
