Fantasy Impact: Dan Bailey was banged up on a extra point attempt in the third quarter and was seen limping on the sideline, a worrysome image for owners of the top-3 kicking option. He rebounded very well, though, as he made a 49-yard field goal late in the 4th quarter to finish a 31-21 win for the Cowboys. Bailey is the most accurate kicker in NFL history and considering that the Cowboys are one of the best offenses in football this year, Bailey's value may never be higher. If this left leg injury is something that Bailey can easily recover from, he is still a top option at kicker.

Fantasy Impact: The Cowboys' 30-23 win in Seattle was a truly historic game for Bailey as he was 3-3 on field goals and set his career long for a field goal with a 56 yard field goal in the third quarter. Bailey is now 13-14 on field goal attempts this year with four of his made field goals being 50+ yards. Bailey is one of five kickers in football that averages double digit points per game in a standard league and his accuracy and ability to make 50+ yard field goals make him even more valuable in leagues where there are bonuses for longer field goal conversions. He may be the only kicker that is worth keeping on your roster even through a bye week.
Cowboys K Dan Bailey converted three of three FG attempts and added three PATs in the team's win over Seattle. Two of Bailey's field goals were from over 40 yards as well.
Fantasy Impact: Bailey continues to be arguably the most consistent kicker in fantasy football. With his three conversions on Sunday, Bailey passed the minimum number of career attempts to be considered as the most accurate kicker in NFL history. Continue to start Bailey on a weekly basis.
Dan Bailey's next field goal attempt will be his 110th, making him eligible to have the best field goal accuracy in NFL history. (Source: ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: Dan Bailey is 99 of 109 in his three plus NFL seasons and is one of the best kickers in the league. He has made a 50+ yard field goal in each season and only once has missed two field goals in a game. He has missed only five kicks in the last two plus seasons and has never missed an extra point. With the Cowboys offense thriving as it has been, Bailey is the most rosterable kicker in the league and would even be worth keeping on your roster during the Week 11 bye week for the Cowboys.
