2020 Fantasy Outlook
In terms of conversion rates, Pineiro was right around league-average last year, and he also made both of his kicks from 50-plus yards. However, he had two games with a pair of missed field goals - both times in close contests the Bears ended up losing. Pineiro is unlikely to be a top-12 option, as the Chicago offense isn't likely to provide a ton of volume. Read Past Outlooks

Coach Matt Nagy doesn't think Pineiro (groin) will be ready to play against the Colts in Week 4, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
Chicago would need to remove Pineiro from IR before he can play, and Cairo Santos will continue to fill in as long as Pineiro remains sidelined. The Bears have a short week before facing the Buccaneers on Thursday in Week 5, so Pineiro will be hard-pressed to heal up in time for that one.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
An early favorite for the kicking job in Oakland last year, Pineiro instead spent his rookie season on injured reserve after hurting his groin in August. Chicago then acquired him for a conditional seventh-round pick, setting up a camp battle with Elliott Fry. With Fry having been let go in August, Pineiro appears poised to handle Chicago's kicking duties, barring the addition of some late competition. If Pineiro keeps the job, he could end up quite busy in 2019, as an elite defense combined with a middling offense is often the right recipe for heavy FG volume.
