Nate Kaeding injury update: He's a fantasy kicker

Nate Kaeding is out and is a fantasy kicker. Fantasy owners need to know what to do about this.

Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding (groin) did not practice this week and he will not play against the Broncos. Nick Novak will handle all of the duties.

Kaeding has hit all seven of his field goals and has 27 points on the season. His long so far is just 45 yards.

Fantasy Impact: He's out for the game and he's a kicker. Fantasy owners should totally stash a kicker on their bench. Totally. In case you're illiterate in reading sarcasm, there's no way that Kaeding should be on any fantasy roster. There are 31 other teams in the NFL and Nick Novak also has more value. There's no reason to stash a kicker unless you're in a three-kicker league or in a 32-man league.

Nick Novak is actually a decent option and he's a low-end K1. Kickers on Monday night can add a little excitement to your life. Trust us.
