Fantasy Impact:

Turner was recently released by the Detroit Lions, sending him to the waivers. Green Bay brings him in for training camp where he can compete with their incumbent starter from 2023 — Anders Carlson — who was not the most productive leg in the NFL during his rookie season (27/33 FG; 34/39 PAT). Turner went undrafted in 2024 out of Michigan where he was a national champion, and an All-Big Ten second-teamer after a successful kicking year (18/21 FG; 65/66 PAT — career stats of 81.3% FG and 98.4% PAT).
