2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Scores five points in Week 2 loss

September 16, 2018
Fairbairn converted both extra-point kicks and was one for two in field-goal attempts in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Titans in Week 2.
ANALYSIS
Fairbairn connected from 34 yards and was short on a 54-yarder. He's got the leg to make it from that distance, as evidenced by his being three for four from beyond 50 yards in 2017.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
