Mike Nugent misses practice, fantasy value low for Week 16

Dilip Vishwanat

Mike Nugent missed another practice Thursday and is questionable to play in Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals K Mike Nugent (calf) was held out of practice on Thursday. Nugent missed the past two games with a lingering calf injury, and he's not a sure thing to come back against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week.

Street free agent Josh Brown has been kicking in Nugent's place, and nailed 6-of-6 field goals.

Fantasy Impact: The Bengals expect Nugen'ts Week 16 status to come down to a game time decision. Brown has been kicking well in Nugent's absence, so there's no guarantee he will get his job back even if healthy.

If you happen to own either of these kickers, keep a close eye on Sunday's inactive reports. You don't want your kicker position to screw you out of a fantasy title.
