  • Rian Lindell working out for Titans Wednesday
    Free agent K Rian Lindell will work out for the Titans on Wednesday.

    Advice: He joins Jay Feely. The Titans clearly aren't satisfied with their unproven duo of Maikon Bonani and Travis Coons.

  • Broncos acquire K Brandon McManus from Giants
    Broncos acquired K Brandon McManus from the Giants in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

    Advice: The Giants were going to cut McManus, so they do well to get something back. McManus has made both of his field goal attempts this preseason and produced 10 touchbacks on 11 kickoffs. He'll fill in for suspended Matt Prater.

  • Free agent K Jay Feely visiting Titans
    Free agent K Jay Feely will visit the Titans on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Titans have a couple no-name kickers, Maikon Bonani and Travis Coons, in camp competing for the job at the moment. Feely was bad for the Cardinals last season and wasn't much better this summer. He's 38 years old.

  • Giants start trimming roster to 75
    Giants waived or released K Brandon McManus, CB Charles James, LB Spencer Adkins, CB Ross Weaver, CB Kyle Sebetic, DE Emmanuel Dieke, OG John Sullen, WR Travis Harvey, S C.J. Barnett, DT Everett Dawkins, and TE Jerome Cunningham.

    Advice: McManus gave Josh Brown a run for his money, nailing 2-of-2 field goals with 10 touchbacks on kickoffs. He'll likely get a look from a kicker-needy team.

  • Josh Brown wins Giants' kicking job
    Josh Brown has won the Giants' kicker job.

    Advice: K Brandon McManus was cut Tuesday after going 2-of-2 on field goals and producing 10 touchbacks on 11 kickoffs this preseason. Brown nailed his lone field goal attempt and all 10 extra points. He's a middling fantasy option.

  • Dolphins waive/injure K John Potter
    Dolphins waived/injured K John Potter.

    Advice: Potter was competing with Caleb Sturgis, but was sidelined by a thigh/hip injury. Considering the league-wide carnage at kicker, Potter might not make it through waivers unclaimed, but his health will be key. Even if Potter does revert to injured reserve, he should eventually be released with an injury settlement.

  • Cardinals release longtime kicker Jay Feely
    Cardinals released K Jay Feely.

    Advice: 38-year-old Feely sealed his fate by missing a 48-yarder in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals. UDFA Chandler Catanzaro is cheaper, kicked better this preseason and has a stronger leg on kickoffs. The Broncos shouldn't be falling over themselves to sign Feely, who went 30-of-36 for the Cardinals last season. Denver starter Matt Prater is on a four-game suspension.

  • Nate Freese wins DET's kicking job
    Nate Freese has won the Lions' placekicking job for now.

    Advice: Giorgio Tavecchio was released Monday. The Lions could still bring in another veteran that shakes loose, but they used a seventh-round pick on Freese -- who went 20-of-20 for Boston College last season. He's on the fantasy radar thanks to dome conditions and the Lions' explosive offense.

  • Dan Bailey hot from 50+ yards out
    Dan Bailey is 3-of-3 on field goals of 50+ yards this preseason.

    Advice: Bailey has developed into one of the league's premier long-ball kickers, as he went 6-of-7 from 50+ last season. With ideal home kicking conditions and an explosive offense, he's an excellent weekly option for fantasy owners -- especially those that get bonus points for length.

  • Broncos K Prater was facing year-long ban
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Broncos K Matt Prater was facing a year-long suspension before his attorney got it reduced to four games.

    Advice: Prater has been in the league's drug program since 2011. This report suggests he's had multiple strikes. Prater has a booming leg and is the consensus top fantasy kicker. He'll miss the first four games of the season before returning in Week 6. Look for the Broncos to sign a veteran kicker in the coming days.

  • Broncos K Matt Prater suspended four games
    NFL suspended Broncos K Matt Prater four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

    Advice: According to the Denver Post, the violation was "alcohol-related." Prater has been in the league's alcohol program since August 2011, when he was charged with DUI. It's a major fantasy blow, as Prater has one of the league's biggest legs, and is kicking for its best offense. He was Rotoworld's No. 2 kicker. Prater's backup is undrafted rookie Mitch Ewald, but the Broncos will likely search for a veteran fill-in. Prater's track record is such that his roster spot shouldn't be in danger. He is eligible to return in Week 6, as the Broncos are on bye in Week 4. Prater is no longer draftable in standard fantasy leagues.

  • Eagles acquire K Cody Parkey from Colts
    Eagles acquired K Cody Parkey from the Colts in exchange for RB David Fluellen.

    Advice: The Eagles were planning to cut Fluellen. The Colts were going to do the same with Parkey. Parkey will provide competition for Alex Henery and Cary Spear. Both have not been good this summer. Spear may be cut shortly.

  • Dolphins K Sturgis battling groin injury
    Dolphins K Caleb Sturgis' roster spot is in danger as he battles a groin injury.

    Advice: Sturgis - who also battled groin issues in camp last season - is facing heat from John Potter. Sturgis was 26-of-34 on field-goal attempts as a rookie, putting him below the desired 80 percent threshold.

  • Alex Henery still penciled in as starting K
    Coach Chip Kelly confirmed that Alex Henery is his No. 1 kicker.

    Advice: Henery, who is facing competition in camp for the first time in his career, missed a 47-yarder in Friday's preseason game against the Bears. But UDFA Carey Spear aka "Murderleg" isn't a threat yet. "We need to get Alex as much work as he can possibly get," Kelly said. "It's clear in our mind that Alex is number one over Carey." The coach added that Henery has missed only two kicks in competitive situations during camp, going 5-of-5 from 50+ and 8-of-8 from 45-to-49 yards.
