Lawrence Tynes now has 10 field goals made on the year. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Giants ran away with their Week 3 matchup against the Panthers, relying on the leg of Lawrence Tynes throughout the entire game. Tynes connected on 5 of 5 field goals, including two 40+ yard kicks, and three extra points on the night.

Fantasy Impact: Tynes finished with four field goals made last week against the Buccaneers, so this looks like it might be recurring theme for the Giants at this juncture in the season. It's always tough to predict kicker's statistics, but Tynes looks to be dead center on each on of his kicks, and he plays for a high-scoring offense. If you need a kicker, Tynes is worth starting.
