2020 Fantasy Outlook
In terms of conversion rates, Pineiro was right around league-average last year, and he also made both of his kicks from 50-plus yards. However, he had two games with a pair of missed field goals - both times in close contests the Bears ended up losing. Pineiro is the favorite to defend his job against former Nevada kicker Ramiz Ahmed, but the Chicago offense isn't likely to provide a ton of volume. Read Past Outlooks

Preparing for competition

Pineiro added eight pounds of muscle to strengthen his leg as he prepares to compete against Ramiz Ahmed for the Bears' kicking job during training camp and the preseason, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Although Pineiro connected on just 82.1 percent of his field-goal attempts last year, he rebounded well from a mid-season slump. Add strength to his leg could help Pineiro on both kickoffs and long-distance field goals, which would come in handy during his job battle with Ahmed. The presence of Ahmed may ultimately not prove to be much of a concern, as he hasn't kicked competitively since 2018, when he made just 15 of 20 field-goal attempts in his final collegiate season at Utah. Regardless, unless the Bears can make significant progress on offense, the team's kicker is unlikely to be more than a fantasy reserve in typical leagues.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
An early favorite for the kicking job in Oakland last year, Pineiro instead spent his rookie season on injured reserve after hurting his groin in August. Chicago then acquired him for a conditional seventh-round pick, setting up a camp battle with Elliott Fry. With Fry having been let go in August, Pineiro appears poised to handle Chicago's kicking duties, barring the addition of some late competition. If Pineiro keeps the job, he could end up quite busy in 2019, as an elite defense combined with a middling offense is often the right recipe for heavy FG volume.

Pineiro anticipates competition for the Bears' starting kicker job during the offseason, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "Last year, I had to compete against eight different guys, so I don't think that's going to change," Pineiro said. "Hopefully, it's not eight again, but I definitely expect competition."
