Dan Carpenter K BUF 3 Days

One game after being named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, Carpenter made five of six field goal attempts in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

Think Carpenter has a point to prove against the Dolphins? Since being let go by the team, he's made 12 field goals in three games against them, missing just once. The Bills have won all of those games. Entering Monday's play, Carpenter's 17 points lead all kickers. Life is good for this fantasy kicker, with the weather still nice in the East, and a second-year quarterback who hasn't quite figured out the red zone yet.

Bills signed K Dan Carpenter.

Carpenter was scheduled to work out for the Browns after the Bills. The 27-year-old has spent time with the Dolphins, Jets, and Cardinals over the past three weeks. Bills rookie kicker Dustin Hopkins injured his groin in Monday's practice, which explains Buffalo's sudden need. The Bills could end up placing Hopkins on injured reserve, or Carpenter will fill in until Hopkins is ready.
