Bailey connected on three of his five field goal attempts and knocked through both of his extra point attempts during Sunday's 23-21 win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey caused some headaches early with a couple of missed kicks in the first half of Sunday's affair. The usually calm-hearted kicker seemed a bit rattled following his poor start but soon found his rhythm in the second half. With the Vikings up six points and two minutes remaining in the game, Minnesota opted to send out Bailey for a 52-yard attempt despite having missed a pair of kicks from closer distance earlier in the contest. Not only did Bailey's boot sail true, but the kick had plenty of distance and split the up rights in half all but reassuring Minnesota fans that he'll be their guy moving forward.

Bailey made three of five field-goal attempts, missing from 45 and 28 yards, in Sunday's win at Philadelphia. He converted both extra-point attempts.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey looked to be repeating Minnesota's woes at kicker early in the game with two misses in his first three attempts, including a 28-yarder. However, he rebounded by essentially sealing the win by making a key 52-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter.

Bailey was 3-for-3 on field goal attempts and made two extra points in Thursday's loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

After not getting a single attempt in his Vikings debut, Bailey got the chance to showcase his leg Thursday and was perfect in doing so. The Vikings' offense returned to form in Los Angeles, and as long as that keeps up, Bailey should be seeing plenty of opportunties moving forward.

Bailey did not attempt a kick in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

It was a disastrous day for the Vikings' offense, and as a result, Bailey's services were not needed on his first day in a Minnesota uniform. Bailey didn't even get a chance to kick an extra point on the team's lone scoring drive because the Vikings had no choice but to attempt a two-point conversion. This appears to be an outlier day for what was a highly productive Minnesota offense for the first two weeks, so Bailey should still be considered an elite fantasy option at kicker moving forward.

Bailey has signed with the Vikings, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey reportedly spurned some previous offers while looking for the right situation, and he now lands in a spot with a good team context. He's thus back on the fantasy radar and could be a decent add for coaches looking to upgrade their kicker situation heading into Week 3.

Bailey has turned down contract offers from as many as four teams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey worked out for the Jets a couple weeks ago and clearly has a market for his services after being released by the Cowboys at the end of the preseason. With several kickers struggling early in the season, he appears to have his choice of a few teams if he does decide to return to action. It appears he's waiting for the right situation and it's unclear when and if he'll decide to play.

Bailey will travel to New York for a workout with the Jets on Monday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey lost the Cowboys' kicker competition to Brett Maher and was released by Dallas on Saturday as a result, but the second-most accurate kicker in league history could latch on with a Jets team that currently sports Jason Myers as its starting kicker.

The Cowboys released Bailey on Saturday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

One of the more shocking roster decisions of cut-down day, Bailey's seven-year run with the Cowboys has come to an end. Prior to missing four games due to injury last season, he hadn't missed a game in his career, but the front office must have liked what it saw in Brett Maher during the offseason and preseason. The latter will serve as the team's place-kicker moving forward while Bailey likely fields calls from a number of organizations.

Bailey said this offseason that he feels great and is 100 percent healthy, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old kicker missed five field goals over the final four weeks of last season, enduring the first true slump of an otherwise impressive career. He still ranks second on the all-time list for career field-goal percentage, so there's not much reason to think the Cowboys would consider replacing him in 2018 unless he looks absolutely terrible. The team did bring in Brett Maher from the CFL, but he'll likely just serve as injury insurance for Bailey during the preseason. A bounce-back season from Dak Prescott would go a long way toward restoring Bailey to fantasy relevance.
