Robbie Gould suggests Soldier Field turf could affect future with Bears: Fantasy implications

US PRESSWIRE

Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould suggested Wednesday that the turf conditions at Soldier Field could impact whether he signs an extension with the Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould said Wednesday that the condition of the turf at Soldier Field could affect whether he signs a contract extension with the team. Gould said Wednesday (via The Chicago Sun Times) that the field was softer than it has been in recent years and that he didn't know if kicking in those conditions was something he wanted to deal with as he got older.

Gould, who has a year left on his contract, later emphasized that he wanted to retire in Chicago. He also apologized to the grounds crew at Solider Field. The Bears face the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact: Gould is one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history despite kicking in Soldier Field. He's been very reliable this season for fantasy owners, especially with the Bears defense setting up its offense with some many forced turnovers.

Gould is a No. 1 kicker in most fantasy leagues for Week 11.
