Connor Barth has a torn Achilles

Tynes is a pretty good kicker, so he's worth consideration at the end of your fantasy draft. Barth was 12th in field goal attempts in 2012.
Encouraging performance for Miami WR Brandon Marshall

Josh Freeman directed a TD drive just before the half to finish on a positive note. Connor Barth kicked a 28-yard field goal for the Bucs (2-1), who overcame 15 penalties in a performance not nearly as crisp as they’d hoped for coming off last week’s sloppy, lopsided loss to New England.
On the night, Marshall had two catches for 90 yards. There is reason to be suspicious of him because of Chad Henne, but if Henne somehow gets his act together on a regular basis, there won't be much risk of Marshall being a fantasy underachiever.

Palmer's season is now officially a three-alarm fire. The Bengals overcame an awful telegraphed interception he threw -- returned by rookie Cody Grimm for a first-half touchdown -- to lead 21-14 in a game they had to win (home against Tampa) if they hoped to muscle into the AFC playoff race. Then Palmer threw two more interceptions in the final 2:30 to blow the game.
The first led to a Josh Freeman-to-Mike Williams 20-yard touchdown pass. The second, with 25 seconds left in the game, led to Connor Barth's winning field goal. A stunner. "We didn't win, and it's my fault,'' Palmer said.
He'll get no arguments from Cincinnati fans, who got their hearts broken by that pathetic display in the afternoon, and then, a few hundred yards away in the evening, by the Reds getting swept out of their first playoff series in 15 years. Blame Palmer, but also factor in young Spurlock, the third-year pro from Ole Miss who made the heartbreak possible.

Bucs sign PK Barth, release Andrus
Tuesday, November 3, 2009, 2:33pm
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a change at kicker for the second time in the 2009 season. Kicker Connor Barth was signed, and kicker Shane Andrus was released. Andrus played in three games for the Bucs after replacing kicker Mike Nugent.
The Bucs had concerns regarding Andrus' accuracy in practice. He attempted just one field goal for Tampa Bay after replacing Mike Nugent. The Bucs say Barth has a more accurate leg as well as better leg strength on kickoffs. Andrus missed his one field goal attempt for the Bucs, and averaged 20.3 yards on kickoffs with one touchback.

According to Carpenter, whom this coaching staff has often praised for his even keel temperament, the competition had nothing to with him straightening out his issues.
"If competition [is a motivator] then it's getting to you," said Carpenter, who converted 21 of 25 field goals last season. "Even though [Barth] is gone, nothing is going to change. I'm still going to work to get better. I'm still going to do what I was doing before he was here, while he was here. And I'm going to continue to do it now that he's gone."

Kansas City Star: Connor Barth acted as if kicking field goals for
the Chiefs was an old habit, and he did it front of one of his Kansas
City training-camp foes. The Chiefs signed Barth this week to replace
Nick Novak, whom the Chiefs chose over Barth after four preseason
games and a kicking competition that lasted throughout training camp.
But it was Jets kicker Jay Feely, whom the Chiefs signed for one day
before cutting him during the preseason, who watched Sunday as
Barth made a 30-yard field goal in the third quarter. Feely missed
his only field-goal attempt. "I was just so glad to get out there,"
