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 Chris Blewitt and Elliott Fry. The winner could end up quite busy, as an elite defense combined with a middling offense is often the right recipe for heavy FG volume. Read Past Outlooks

Starts preseason on wrong foot

August 9, 2019
Pineiro converted one of two field-goal attempts in the Bears' 23-13 preseason loss to the Panthers on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Pineiro's first attempt came from 48 yards, and although it had plenty of leg, it hooked wide to the left. Later in the game, he took advantage of his second opportunity by knocking down a 23-yard chip shot. Meanwhile, his teammate Elliott Fry connected on the same kick that Cody Parkey missed in the 2018 playoffs- from 43 yards away, toward the north goalpost, and after a timeout. For now, Fry has the edge in this competition, but it's likely that it'll go on for the next couple weeks. Whoever prevails could emerge as a strong fantasy option because the Bears project for a strong offensive campaign in the coming season.
