Kai Forbath should at least be playing in an improved offense this season, but that will depend on the success of QB Robert Griffin III. While RG3 has looked good in camp so far, we'll have to see how that transitions to real games. If he can get back to his rookie form, there is enough in the offense to be able to move the ball, which would put Forbath in position to put up fantasy points.
It's a bit risky right now to think the above is going to happen and this will be a high-flying offense. The team will need to run the ball to take pressure off RG3 and there is no indication the Skins want to get in a shootout with anyone. That's not always the type of offense you want your fantasy kicker to be a part of.
Forbath's ranking of 27th on our kicker list certainly indicates we don't think he's going to be in a position to put up consistent fantasy points on a week-to-week. There are much better options than Forbath on your draft board.
