Connor Barth K TB 4 Months
Bucs K Connor Barth is completely healed from the Achilles injury that sidelined him in 2013.
"I'm making 61-yard field goals," Barth said. Barth was one of the most consistent kickers in the game before suffering the injury during a charity basketball last July. Barth's fantasy value has been held back by the tepidity of the Tampa Bay offense, but he is as solid an option as any in the fantasy kicking game.
