Forbath made his only field-goal attempt from 21 yards and converted all five extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Forbath stabilized Minnesota's kicking situation after the release of Blair Walsh as he made all 15 field goal attempts. He did miss three extra point attempts, however. Forbath is signed through 2017, so he should return as Minnesota's kicker next season.

Forbath connected on two of two field-goal attempts but only on one of two PATs in Saturday's loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

While Forbath missed an extra point for the third time in his six-week tenure as a member of the Vikings, he maintained his perfect record in the field goal department. He'll look to remain blemish-free in that area during the Vikings' season finale in Week 17 against the Bears.

Forbath converted all four field-goal attempts (from 43, 32, 40 and 46 yards) but made just one of two extra-point attempts in Sunday's win at Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Forbath has been exactly what the Vikings needed after he was signed to replace struggling Blair Walsh after Week 9. Forbath has made all ten field goal attempts and five of seven extra-point attempts.

The Saints have reportedly released Forbath, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the move, which follows the team parting ways with Connor Barth, Wil Lutz is now on track to open the season as the Saints' kicker.

With the team cutting Connor Barth on Saturday, Fortbath will be the Saints' Week 1 kicker, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

EDGE Analysis

Forbath won what was an extremely tight battle with Barth this offseason. As the Saints' kicker for the final nine games of 2015, Forbath was 9-for-13 on field goals and 32-for-33 on extra points. In theory, playing behind in New Orleans should be a kicker's dream, as they play a minimum of nine games in a dome (eight home games and a visit to Atlanta) and the team's high-powered offense should provide plenty of opportunities. However, the team's kicker production has not matched the offense's overall success, in large part due to the team's high touchdown conversion rate in the red zone. Still, Forbath is likely worth owning in the majority of fantasy leagues now that he's won the job.

After four preseason games, it's still unclear Forbath or Connor Barth will enter the season as the Saints' Week 1 starting kicker, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

EDGE Analysis

Both Barth and Forbath had only limited opportunities in preseason exhibitions. Forbath, the Saints' kicker for 10 games in 2015, was 3-for-4 on field goals, missing a 50-yarder in the preseason opener in New England. Barth was 2-for-2, but he didn't have a chance to make a 50-yarder as his longest attempt was from 40. Each kicker made his only extra point, and both were solid on kickoffs. Perhaps the team feels more comfortable with the incumbent Forbath, but it would also be hard to cut a guy like Barth considering he didn't miss. The Saints will have difficult decision to make when rosters are due this Saturday, and all fantasy owners can really do is take a wait-and-see approach.

The kicking competition between Forbath and Connor Barth is still "dead even," according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com. Both players converted on their lone extra point attempts in Friday's preseason tilt against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Forbath would appear to have the edge due to his incumbent status, but the starting gig remains firmly up for grabs entering the final week of the preseason. A miss or a clutch kick in Thursday's finale would probably sway the decision either way. The winner is not likely to be a top-five fantasy kicker due to the Saints' consistently high touchdown conversion rate in the red zone but should nonetheless be an above average option.

Forbath is holding off Connor Barth for the starting kicker job, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, but the competition is "very close and far from decided."

EDGE Analysis

Both Forbath and Barth kicked well during practice on Wednesday, but the battle between the two veterans still remains too tight to call. Although Forbath did himself no favors by missing badly on his only field goal attempt -- a 50-yarder -- in the Saints' preseason opener against the Patriots last week, his incumbent status likely gives him the early leg up.
