Houston Texans rookie kicker Randy Bullock and veteran Shayne Graham are currently locked in a close competition for the team's starting kicker job, and coach Gary Kubiak says it's split down the middle right now, according to Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com. Graham is 4-4 on field goals this preseason with a long of 49 yards, while Bullock is 2-3 with a long of 52 yards. Bullock's lone miss came from 51 yards out.
Analysis: Texans' kickers have proven to be reliable fantasy commodities over the years because of the efficiency of the team's offense. Bullock, an All-American in 2011 for Texas A&M and Houston's fifth round pick in the 2012 draft, is known for his big leg, which he has shown off on occasion this preseason. He made his 52-yard field goal against the 49ers look easy. Graham, meanwhile, is a former Pro Bowler and has kicked for 10 different NFL teams. The winner of this competition will be worth a final-round draft choice in your fantasy league.
