Fantasy Profile: Dan Bailey, Kicker, Dallas Cowboys

Dan Bailey is an efficient kicker on a high powered offense in Dallas. Last year he made 25 of 29 field goals for an average of 86.2%. He also was good on all of his 56 extra point attempts which were the most of any kicker in football. Even though DeMarco Murray was a big reason for the success in Dallas last year, the Dallas Cowboys will be a top tier offense once again this season. The key to the offense in Dallas is the offensive line, which has managed to actually get better in the off-season. With that line the Dallas Cowboys will continue to move the ball down the field efficiently. Quarterback Tony Romo will still successfully move the ball into scoring range for Bailey. Bailey should be on fantasy teams as the 5th to 10th kicker selected in fantasy drafts.
