  • Report: Lions mulling kicker change
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are "kicking around idea of new kicker," and have worked out free agents Rob Bironas, Alex Henery and Garrett Hartley.

    Advice: Seventh-round rookie Nate Freese is just two for his first five on field goals, and on extremely thin ice. Arguably any of the three veterans the Lions worked out would be an improvement.

  • Cody Parkey hits a game-winner twice
    Cody Parkey went 3-of-4 on field goals Monday night, including the game-winner as time expired.

    Advice: Parkey started off shaky by hooking 38-yarder in the first quarter, but rebounded nicely. The rookie had to hit the game-winner from 36 yards out twice because the Colts called timeout just before the kick to ice him. With the Eagles' red-zone offense sputtering and Parkey at 5-of-6 on the year, he is establishing himself as a weekly top-12 fantasy option.

  • Nate Freese now 2-of-5 on season
    Lions rookie K Nate Freese is now 2-of-5 on field goals.

    Advice: Freese missed two 49-yard attempts at Carolina Sunday and also missed from 43 yards in Week 1. He went 20-of-20 at Boston College last year. It's possible the Lions will be looking into free agent kickers this week.

  • Mike Nugent shanks three FGs vs. ATL
    Mike Nugent missed three field goals in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Falcons.

    Advice: Fantasy owners that chased Nugent's five Week 1 field goals got burned, but the projection was accurate. He missed from 38, 49 and 55 yards out -- the first time he's missed three times in a game in his career. Nugent, now with an absurd 10 attempts through two games, will be a boom-or-bust kicking option against the Titans in Week 3. He was an 81.8 percent kicker coming into this season.
