CBSSports.com is SB Nation's fantasy football partner. SB Nation has a deal with CBSSports.com offering their Fantasy Football Commissioner leagues at half-price. If you're interested in purchasing a league for the price of $90, make sure you do it through this link so BTB gets the credit. You get lots of cool features with the league.

This week's projections concern the kickers. According to the CBSSports.com projections, they see the David Buehler as the #9 kicker with 25 out of 29 FGs made and 48 XPs.

That seems a little generous for a kicker who is new to FGs/XPs in the NFL. Of course, part of that projection is based on the Cowboys offense, which should, I said should, be one of the higher scoring units in the NFL. Half the battle for a fantasy kicker is having a unit that will get him in position to convert scoring opportunities. He should have that with Dallas this year. But, as we all know, the question is: Can he convert those chances? I wasn't thrilled with what I saw at training camp practices, but in the pre-season games he seems to be doing all right. His kicks look to be getting better, although the Cowboys offense isn't giving him many chances to get in some 'game situation' kicks.

A #9 projection for Buehler seems too high, but we know the kid has the leg to hit from almost any distance. It's all about the accuracy. If he can nail that down, then he should be one of the better fantsy kickers in the league.
