Phil Dawson converted 49 of his 50 pregame kicks, even a pair of 58-yard field goals going from each direction. That's about as accurate as San Francisco's veteran place kicker has been in recent years.

So it was a bit startling to watch as he sailed his only two chances during Sunday's 34-0 loss to Denver wide right — first from 55 yards then again from 44.

Dawson planned to return to Levi's Stadium on Tuesday afternoon to get back to work figuring out a new field and its quirks. The grass, like with any new sod, is still getting its roots established and has come up in places. Not that Dawson is complaining about the elements. He can walk some 100 yards from the practice fields to the stadium to practice.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Phil Dawson set career highs for field goal attempts and makes in his first season in San Francisco, going 32 for 36.

Fantasy Downside
At 39, he's one of the oldest players in the NFL, which, even for a kicker, isn't great news.

Bottom Line
Dawson overcame a slow start last season to be fantasy gold. Can he do it again? The 49ers will offer him chances. He's going off the board as the seventh kicker taken in most drafts, which still means you take him very, very late.
