Week 8 Outlook
The Detroit Lions worked out kickers Rob Bironas, Alex Henery and Garrett Hartley on Tuesday, two days after rookie Nate Freese missed two first half field goals against the Panthers.
Freese, the Lions' seventh-round draft pick, has missed three of his first five attempts this season. No word yet on whether the Lions will sign one of the veteran kickers they brought in for a workout. Right now, this is a situation for fantasy owners to avoid.
The Lions have named Nate Freese, a rookie out of Boston College, as their starting kicker heading into the season.
Freese went 20-for-20 last season for BC and has legitimate fantasy appeal due to the Lions' explosive offense and the kicker-friendly dome environment. If the Lions choose not to bring in a veteran kicker before the start of the season, Freese could be a nice sleeper.
