San Diego Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding is officially listed as questionable for the team's game on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding is officially listed as questionable for the team's game on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Kaeding's Friday practice ended early, as the kicker was suffering from a sore groin. The Chargers will re-evaluate Kaeding's status tomorrow, but they signed Nick Novak as insurance.

Fantasy Impact: Nate Kaeding is somehow injury prone at a position that makes it fairly easy to avoid injury. While he's a talented kicker, he's not worth rostering right now given his injury. Even if he manages to suit up for the Chargers, there is no guarantee he will be kicking at 100-percent. There should be another decent option on your waiver wire. You shouldn't need to check the injury status of your fantasy kicker. Life is too short.
