Dan Bailey Fantasy News
Tuesday, August 14, 2012, 10:00pm
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said WR Andre Holmes “really stood out” Monday night and even hinted he might have put himself in the lead when it comes to the jumbled pack of backup receivers jostling for position.
Holmes caught two of his three passes on the Cowboys’ and the game’s only scoring drive. A 16-yard catch and then a 4-yard grab helped set up Dan Bailey’s field goal for the only point of the game.

Bailey, the Lou Groza Award winner at Oklahoma State last season, will kick field goals and extra points. He had an up-and-down training camp, but he made both of his attempts during the preseason, making kicks from 37 and 41 yards.
Buehler will be a kickoff specialist, as he was his rookie season in 2009. As the lone kicker on the roster last season, Buehler ranked among the least accurate kickers in the NFL, making only 75 percent of his field goals and missing two extra points.
As an unknown, Bailey shouldn't be drafted, but as part of a good offense, he could be worthy of an in-season waiver add if he proves worthy of the job.

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said Dave Rayner, David Buehler, Shayne Graham and Dan Bailey all will get the chance to kick in Thursday’s preseason finale against Miami. Buehler joked they may have to kick on first and second down to make sure everyone gets a crack.
Stay away from the Dallas kickers until one wins the job.

Rayner kicked with the Detroit Lions last year where in eight games he converted 81.3 percent of his field goal tries and out of 34 kickoffs had two touchbacks and 31 returned for an average of 20 yards.
The Cowboys have David Buehler, Kai Forbath, Shayne Graham and Dan Bailey in camp. If the team signs Rayner, they have room on the roster for him because the team doesn't have to get down to 80 players until Wednesday.
With a lot of drafts already over, this is something to note if you drafted Buehler...

Veteran Shayne Graham made a 38-yard field goal Saturday night against the Vikings, and the rookie from Oklahoma State, Dan Bailey, made two - from 37 and 41 yards. Graham sent three of his six kickoffs into the end zone.
Buehler is doing some light kicking as he recovers from his hip issue, but with one preseason game left, the competition for the kicking job is turning into a two-man race.
Given that Dallas should have a good offense this year, their kicker could prove to be a valuable waiver wire acquisition at some point during the season.
