Kai Forbath signs with Redskins, Bill Cundiff on the out: Fantasy implications

Rafael Suanes-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Kai Forbath signed with the Redskins on Tuesday, and is expected to replace the struggling Billy Cundiff. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kai Forbath tried out and was signed by the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, according to reports. The Redskins are expected to release the struggling Billy Cundiff later in the day. Forbath was a Lou Groza Award winner with UCLA before entering the NFL in 2011. He has yet to try a field goal in a regular season game as a professional.

Fantasy Impact: Forbath was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after it became clear that the starting job was Connor Barth's. He apparently beat out Olindo Mare and Josh Brown for the Redskins' job, so he must have performed well at the tryout. As for Cundiff, he will find himself looking for a new job once again after going 7-for-12 on field goal attempts this season. He missed from 31 yards out this past week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
