2019 Fantasy Outlook
An unexpected scoring leader last year, Fairbairn benefited from a Houston offense ranked 15th in yards (363 per game) and 27th in red-zone TD rate (50 percent). Harrison Butker was the only kicker with more cumulative opportunities between field goals and extra points, with Fairbairn getting a boost from Houston's strong play on defense. Accuracy helps his cause, but some of 2018's FGs will become PATs. Read Past Outlooks

Fairbairn converted all three field-goal attempts and two extra-point kicks for 11 points in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Colts in Week 7.
ANALYSIS
For the first time in five games, Fairbairn did not miss any of his kicks. The field goals were from 47, 31 and 26 yards. It was a trip back to last season for Fairbairn, who stepped in when the offense failed to score touchdowns three times in the red zone. He's made nine of 12 field-goal attempts through seven games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Fairbairn beat out Nick Novak in a kicking battle last season, then had a quiet debut campaign on a miserable team. The 24-year-old did enjoy a couple big games before Deshaun Watson was injured, and he made nine of 11 attempts from 40 yards or longer. The downside was a trio of misses from inside 40 yards and three more misses on PATs. Fairbairn could become a productive option if Watson returns healthy and proves to be a star.
Fairbairn surprisingly beat out incumbent Nick Novak to win the kicking battle in Houston. This is not an insignificant development. Novak finished second in the NFL with 41 field-goal attempts in 2016. Much of that had to do with a Texans' offense that had difficulty finishing drives. Houston's quarterback play this season may only be marginally better as an untested Tom Savage directing the offense, meaning Fairbairn's leg could be an important part of the offense.
