Add K, drop a TE

I have one K on my roster, Robbie Gould. I was thinking of picking up John Carney this week and dropping Randy McMichael my backup TE.

It will cost me a buck to do this. If I do it, I will start Carney this week against the Lions in the Superdome v. Gould against the Packers in GB (maybe rain there). Does it make sense to switch Kickers like this?

No. Kicker micromanagement is the path to doom. Go with the kicker you got, then try to snipe the kicker on the offense that surprises everyone this year. This is how people cash in on Neil Rackers three years ago, Robbie Gould two years ago, Bironas last year, etc etc.
