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

Given little opportunity Saturday

January 6, 2019
Fairbairn did not attempt a field goal and converted his lone extra-point kick in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card round loss to Indianapolis.
Fairbairn, the NFL's leading scorer in 2018, did not get much work in the playoff loss. Houston's defense committed early penalties that extended a couple of the Colts' drives, which turned into touchdowns, putting the offense in a deep second-quarter hole. The Colts' defense then clamped down on quarterback Deshaun Watson and his weapons, preventing the offense from consistently moving the ball and limiting the Texans to one red-zone opportunity over the first three quarters. All that served to limit Fairbairn, who becomes an exclusive-rights free agent next year. The Texans are expected to bring him back for 2019.

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.
