RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Called upon for 13 games to replace the perennially injured Nate Kaeding, Novak did everything the Chargers could have hoped for, connecting on 90 percent of his kicks (18-for-20). That strong showing was enough for the Chargers to sign the 31-year old to a four-year deal, giving him a clear grasp on a job heading into training camp for the first time in his career. Novak will benefit from playing half his games in sunny Southern California, but that advantage is largely offset by a probable regression in accuracy given his career rate (76.2 percent) and a Chargers offense that has declined in recent seasons.

2012

Novak had a very good season filling in for the injured Nate Kaeding in 2011, hitting on 79% of his kicks and scoring a total of 122 points. However, if Kaeding appears to be back and healthy in 2012, so Novak is not likely to win a starting job.

2011

Novak enters training camp to compete with Nick Folk for the PK position

2010

Novak is the backup kicker in case Nate Kaeding suffers an injury.

2008

Novak will compete with undrafted rookie Connor Barth to be the Chiefs’ kicker. The Chiefs may be leery to roll the dice with a rookie after last year’s Justin Medlock debacle, which could give Novak an edge. Even if he does win the job, however, he’s unlikely to be a reliable fantasy option given the Chiefs expected offensive struggles.

2007

Novak is the backup to starting kicker Robbie Gould and is likely to wind up on the Bears' practice squad this year.

2006

Novak isn't likely to make the Cardinals' team unless Neil Rackers is injured.
