Robbie Gould placed on injured reserve: Olindo Mare new fantasy kicker for Bears

US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago Bears signed Olindo Mare to replace Robbie Gould, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday due to a calf injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Robbie Gould has been placed on injured reserve due to a calf injury. As a result, the Chicago Bears signed Olindo Mare on Tuesday to be the team's new starting kicker, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Gould strained his left calf in warm-ups prior to the Bears' loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He went 21-for-25 on field goal attempts this season, with two field goals over 50 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Mare was released from the Carolina Panthers in August after struggling on long field goal attempts in training camp and preseason. He has never been an overwhelmingly accurate kicker, going 22-for-28 last season. The Bears rank 23rd in the NFL in field goal attempts this season, so don't expect big things fantasy-wise from Mare.
