Dan Carpenter K BUF 3 Days

Carpenter made his only field goal attempt from 31 yards out Sunday against the Vikings.

Carpenter is now 14-for-16 on field goals for the season, including one from 58 yards against the Lions. His 14 field goals ties him for fourth most on the season, but he has only attempted 11 extra points, dropping his value in fantasy leagues. The Bills go on the road this week to face the Jets.

Carpenter was 3-of-4 on field goal attempts in Sunday's comeback win over Detroit, including a 58-yarder just before the end of regulation to win it.

Surprisingly, Carpenter is now 3-for-4 on kicks of 58 yards or longer in his career, and this one was pretty huge for the Bills' season, as they had lost two in a row and falling short after a nice comeback on the road might have proved devastating. Carpenter now has 46 points on the season, good for fifth in the NFL. There's little reason to think this won't continue given his skill set and the Bills' comfort level in trotting him out there, not to mention the team isn't exactly affluent in the red zone. Just remember the Bills play in the AFC East, where weather and their wintry home field usually become a factor come fantasy playoff time.

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.
