Gould converted both of his field-goal attempts (33, 48) and all four PATs in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Gould finishes the season 39-for-41 on field-goal tries, a conversion rate (95 percent) that was only bested by Graham Gano of the Panthers on 11 fewer attempts. In fact, one of his two misses was a block, so the veteran was even slightly better than his final totals indicate. Maybe the 34-year-old was out to prove the Chicago Bears -- who struggled kicking the ball this year -- wrong for letting him go, as his 49-for-51 mark over the past two years is near the tops amongst all NFL kickers. Whatever the case, Gould looks as good as ever, and should benefit from what appears to be an upward-trending offense in San Francisco next season.

Gould made a 27-yard field goal but missed one of his six extra-point tries in Sunday's 44-33 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Gould's missed extra point was just the fourth time he's misfired on 65 total attempts this season. The reliable veteran has tallied 56 points over the past four games, moving him into fourth league-wide in scoring.

Gould was perfect on all six of his field-goal attempts Sunday, adding an extra point in a 25-23 win over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Jimmy Garoppolo has not only improved the 49ers' receiving options, but his presence has made Gould one of the best fantasy kickers with 15 field goals made over the past three weeks. The 35-year-old has been as accurate as ever, missing just one field goal (the other was blocked) and going a perfect 4-for-4 from 50-plus yards. San Francisco's offense will face one of their stiffest tests against the Jaguars' vaunted defense next week, so it would be realistic to assume a reduced number of scoring opportunities for the red-hot placekicker.

Gould made field goals from 52, 35, 25 and 41 yards in Sunday's 26-16 win over the Texans, when he also made both his extra-point tries.

EDGE Analysis

Gould has now notched 29 points in two games since Jimmy Garoppolo took over as San Francisco's starting quarterback. While it remains to be seen whether his production increase continues, that's the best two-week stretch Gould has put together this season.

Gould went 5-for-5 on field-goal attempts Sunday, accounting for all 15 of the 49ers' points in a win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Revenge games for kickers probably don't move the fantasy needle much, but Gould had about as successful of a return to his former stomping grounds as we've seen in recent history. The 34-year-old stuck it to the club that kicked him to the curb after an 11-year run in Chicago. This was actually the second time this season that the veteran kicker has nailed five field goals in a single game. While a repeat performance seems unlikely, Gould's excellent accuracy combined with the marked improvement of the offense under Jimmy Garoppolo makes him a strong play in an indoor arena next Sunday against the Texans.

Gould was good from 38 and 42 yards out on his two field-goal attempts Sunday, adding an extra point in a 24-13 loss to Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

This marked the first time since Week 5 that Gould converted multiple field goals in the same contest. The 34-year-old owns a 91 percent conversion rate on field-goal attempts this year, so his lack of multiple-score games is a testament to the 49ers' inability to move the ball on offense rather than an indictment on the veteran's skills. There are rumblings that Jimmy Garoppolo could take over the offense as soon as next week after getting a successful -- albeit brief -- taste of action Sunday. The 49ers and fantasy owners alike are hoping an impending change at QB will spark the stagnant offense, which would in turn give Gould a bump in value whenever that switch is officially made.

Gould nailed a 43-yard field goal and converted all four of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

It was a rare sight to see the 49ers move the ball at will against an opponent for a change, and while it didn't result in more field goals for the veteran, he was able to reward fantasy owners with four PAT conversions for the first time this season. Sunday's offensive explosion was likely the result of the Giants being one of the few teams in worst shape than the 49ers, so Gould should remain a low-end kicking option against the Seahawks following the team's bye week.

Gould made his only field-goal attempt from 42 yards out and converted an extra-point try in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Gould's production has dwindled along with the entire 49ers offense over the past four weeks. The veteran kicker has just four made field goals with two misses over that span -- although one of the failed attempts was blocked. The 34-year-old has proven that he can still get it done (90 percent conversion rate), but like most placekickers, he can only work with the opportunities his offense provides him. Gould could see an increase in attempts against the Giants next week, who may be one of the few teams currently in worse shape than the 49ers.

Gould converted a 50-yard field goal and had his second attempt blocked in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He made his only extra-point attempt.

EDGE Analysis

This was the usually-reliable Gould's second miss in three weeks, but this one wasn't necessarily on him. The 49ers' special teams unit failed to stop Derek Barnett from getting in front of the veteran's 27-yard attempt in the fourth quarter. Gould only has one true miss this year, but San Francisco's offensive woes are more of a concern than his kicking accuracy. Next week's opponent, the Cardinals, are without their starting quarterback, so that game may be closer than these past two blowouts which have limited Gould's value.

Gould converted his only field-goal attempt from 42 yards out, adding a PAT in Sunday's 40-10 loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Gould delivered when he was asked to in this one, but he wasn't given many opportunities after the team fell behind big early. The 49ers began the second half down by three scores, so they bypassed two potential field-goal opportunities deep in Dallas' territory in favor of going for it on fourth down (unsuccessfully). Add in a redzone turnover, and you have the recipe for a low-scoring day for the veteran kicker. Gould has been extremely accurate this season, so his owners will be hoping for a more-favorable game flow next week against the Eagles.
