Steelers cut Josh Scobee, sign Chris Boswell

USA Today - [Full Article]

Josh Scobee's miserable fourth quarter against the Baltimore Ravens cost him his job.

The Steelers cut the veteran kicker on Saturday, less than 48 hours after a pair of late missed field goals by Scobee helped the Ravens rally for a 23-20 overtime victory.

Pittsburgh replaced Scobee on the roster with Chris Boswell, who has spent time with the Houston Texans and New York Giants but has never kicked in a regular season game.

The Steelers acquired Scobee from Jacksonville on Aug. 31 in exchange for a sixth pick in the 2016 draft following injuries to Shaun Suisham and Garrett Hartley in the preseason. Scobee, the leading scorer in Jacksonville history, made just 6 of 10 field goals and also missed an extra point.

Fantasy Impact: 

Like all those before him, Boswell should have fantasy value given the talent on the Pittsburgh offense and its ability to move the ball. Of course, the offense takes a bit of a hit with Michael Vick at QB, but Ben Roethlisberger is expected to return which will given everyone a boost. Boswell is at least worth considering if you're in need at the position.
