San Francisco 49ers PK Robbie Gould was absent from the team's facility Monday, April 15, the first day of the offseason program. He has yet to sign a one-year franchise tender that would pay him $4.97 million for the 2019 season. Gould is unhappy about the team's decision to apply the franchise tag and isn't interested in signing a long-term deal with the team before the July 15 deadline to do so.
Huddle Up: Gould led the league in field-goal percentage (97.1) in 2018, and he ranks second in NFL history in accuracy percentage. He'll be a strong fantasy option again in 2019.

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent PK Robbie Gould is expected to be franchise tagged this offseason if a long-term deal is not able to be reached. Franchise tags for kickers are expected to be worth $5 million.
Huddle Up: Gould was the most accurate kicker in football last year, connecting on 33 of his 34 field-goal attempts. Even at 36 years old, Gould demands No. 1 fantasy kicker consideration.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said that the team has been in contact with representatives for PK Robbie Gould regarding a contract for the 2019 season. However, multiple sources claim that no deal appears imminent.
Huddle Up: The 36-year-old Gould had an excellent year in 2018, going 33-for-34 on field-goal attempts and 27-for-29 on extra-point attempts. He should be viewed as a solid placekicking option in all fantasy formats heading into 2019.

Free-agent PKs Robbie Gould (Bears) and Kai Forbath (Saints) will work out for the Dallas Cowboys because PK Dan Bailey (back) is dealing with an injury, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Bailey will miss any time because of the injury. Owners will be able to find other kickers if they need one.

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould is looking to add a few pounds for the 2016 season, and he is eating junk food trying to achieve his goal. 'I just know that putting on weight for me is difficult and I'm not a junk food eater,' Gould said Tuesday, April 5. He is hoping the added weight will mean added strength.
Huddle Up: Now there's an offseason training regimen the vast majority of fantasy footballers can relate to.

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould (quadriceps) is questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Jay Feely will be the Bears kicker if Gould can't go. There are better fantasy options out there this week for owners to choose from than Feely.

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould (leg) and WR Brandon Marshall (hip) were both present, but did not participate in practice Tuesday, May 14.
Huddle Up: Both Chicago standouts still are recovering from surgery, but time remains on their side as there's still almost 3 months before training camp even gets underway.

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould underwent surgery this offseason to repair a ruptured semitendinosus tendon in his left leg. He is about three weeks away from getting medically cleared to resume kicking without restrictions.
Huddle Up: The semitendinosus tendon is one of the hamstring muscles, so you can imagine how difficult it would be to kick with a bum hammy. There are currently no other kickers on the Chicago roster, so Gould will have plenty of time to heal and claim his regular gig by the time the games start to count.

The Chicago Bears have signed veteran K Robbie Gould to a 5-year contract extension which will run through the 2013 season. Gould's contract will now be worth $15.5 million which includes a $4.25 million signing bonus. "I'm excited about the contract I signed," Gould said. "I'm excited to be a Bear. ... This is definitely a win-win on both ends."
Huddle Up: Gould will provide the Bears a Pro-Bowl caliber kicker for many years to come and give the Chicago offense a solid weapon to put points on the board. Gould has converted on 84 of 99 field goal attempts in his career while also making 99 of 100 PAT's. He was named to the Pro-Bowl team in 2006 and has been a solid point producer for the Bears throughout his NFL career. Fantasy owners should have Gould high up on their draft charts when selecting kickers in the latter rounds of fantasy drafts.
