Adam Vinatieri went 3-for-3 in field goal attempts and made both his extra-point tries on Sunday as the Colts beat the Falcons by a 27-24 score.

Fantasy Impact

Vinatieri had gotten off to a rocky start this season, with the 46-yard-old connecting on only one of three field goals and two of five extra-point attempts through the first two weeks. Vinatieri looked good on Sunday and hopefully has turned a corner but for now, fantasy owners should leave him on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

Fantasy Impact

Vinatieri has missed four extra points in the first two games of the season and looks like his time has come to say goodbye.

Adam Vinatieri has a forgettable day in Week 1 loss

Adam Vinatieri missed two field-goal attempts and an extra-point attempt in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Despite missing practice in August due to a knee injury, head coach Frank Reich said the misses were not due to an injury, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports. "He's the one guy I'm not worried about. He didn't have a good day... That's the least of my worries right now," said Reich. Either way, Vinatieri struggled on Sunday and fantasy owners may want to look for a more reliable kicker.
