With Brandon McManus struggling during the middle part of last season, Connor Barth was signed by the Broncos and did a superb job. In the final five regular season games, Barth was 15-of-16 on FG attempts, including two games in which he made five FGs. In Denver’s explosive offense, he averaged 12 points per contest. He has connected on over 85 percent of his field goal attempts during his career. Connor was four-of-five from 44+ in ’14 and is 13-for-20 lifetime from beyond 50.
Barth doesn’t have one of the strongest kicking legs in the league. His longest FG last season was 50 yards and in his career he’s just 77 percent (53-69) from beyond 40 yards.
The Broncos offense scored 56 TDs last season and attempted 29 field goals. The team will continue to be one of the top point scorers in the NFL. Connor should get plenty of scoring chances each week and is listed as a top-five fantasy kicker.
