The Bears waived Barth on Monday, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move was fully expected after the Bears came to terms with Cairo Santos on a contract earlier Monday, one day after Barth missed what would have been a game-tying kick from 46 yards out with seconds remaining in a 27-24 loss to the Lions. Accuracy was an issue for Barth while he served as the Bears' kicker in 2016, and he took a step back in that regard this season, converting only 11 of 16 field-goal tries, including four misses from the 40-to-49-yard range. The Bears are banking on Santos, who has a career 84.8 percent success rate on field goals, being a more reliable source of scoring than Barth.

The Bears signed Cairo Santos to replace Barth on Monday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Barth missed a 46-yard field goal attempt with three seconds remaining in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions. He's missed five of his 16 tries this season, after going 18 for 23 last year.

Barth made one of two field-goal attempts while adding three extra points in the Week 11 loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Barth had a chance to tie the game at 27 in the waning moments of the game, but his wide kick never had a chance of finding the uprights. As long as he remains on the Bears' roster, he'll be a low-upside fantasy option, as he's posted six or fewer points in three of his last four contests.

Barth made all three of his field-goal attempts while converting an extra point in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Barth had his first perfect outing since Week 6 leading to a season-high 10 points. Although he's been a weak fantasy option for most of the season, he's had three field-goal attempts in two-straight games, and with the Bears improving a bit on offense, Barth could be emerging as a useful fantasy option.

Barth connected on two of three field goal attempts in a losing effort in Week 8.

EDGE Analysis

Barth missed a field goal that would have given the Bears a much-better chance of winning while posting six points. He's missed four of his last 10 kicks, and it wouldn't surprise anyone if Chicago was holding kicker tryouts in the near future. Otherwise, with seven field goals in eight games, he continues to be a weak fantasy option.

Barth kicked a field goal along with a pair of extra points in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Barth was in line for a potential 43-yard field-goal attempt, but after Mitch Trubisky took a third-down sack, he ended up attempting the kick from 53-yards out and came up short. His successful three-pointer came from his 19 points away, and he had another sub-par fantasy performance. He'll continue to be a weak fantasy option, as he simply doesn't get enough opportunities to be a consistent producer.

Barth connected on a pair of field goals along with three extra points in Chicago's win over the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

For the second time this season, Barth had more than one field-goal attempt, and it was the first time he's connected on two of them in the same contest. Although he had a productive afternoon, his season-high before this week was five points, and he's not a recommended fantasy option in leagues that start one kicker.

Barth converted an extra point, but didn't attempt a field goal in Monday's loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

The Bears struggled to move the ball consistently against a stout Minnesota defense, and Barth wasn't called upon to attempt a field goal. In addition, after the team scored their second touchdown of the night, they opted to go for a two-point conversion. Playing on a low-volume offense, he's a weak fantasy option.

Barth connected on a pair of extra point conversions in Thursday's loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Barth pushed a 57-yard field-goal attempt wide to the left, and as a result, he had a poor fantasy performance. With just two made field goals over the first four weeks of the season, he's a low-end fantasy option.

Barth scored five points in Sunday's victory over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Barth connected on a chip-shot field goal while missing a longer attempt earlier in the contest. As the kicker on one of the weaker offenses in the league, he's not a very reliable fantasy option.
