20 for 20 at BC last year, just won the Lions starting PK job.

High powered offense, domed stadium, high scoring offenses in the division, plus opens Week 1 at home vs. the abysmal Giants.

could be a guy you add right now if you got stuck with a late mediocre kicker (or drafted Prater before the suspension was announced)

This was my target at K before Prater got suspended (i proceeded to pick up McManus who is Prater's replacement).

You gotta love dome kickers and he's with a strong offense. If you didn't draft a kicker (like me) or stuck with a poop head, pick this guy up

funny thing is, he was obviously my immediate first thought when I heard Prater was out...but that offense might not score any points all year.

It's true, the Rams might not move the ball. Finally The Leg will be unleashed to attempt 80 yarders.

In seriousness I may look at this Freese guy when I finally pick up a kicker

I wonder if Nate is going to kick a FG to end a game if the opposing coach will Freese the Kicker.

nailed a 53 yarder today

...this guy could be taking the place of Blair Walsh on my team before the season starts.

we all know there's nothing more exciting than adding/dropping kickers!!

he didn't miss a single FG last year in college, booming 50+ yarders in preseason games, and kicks for a high powered offense in a high scoring division with all home games in a dome...

not sure if any kicker in the league has a better setup than him right now

Then again Broncos only had 26.. Guess it is about length so Freesw could be a stud.

Patriots had 41! That's crazy

a little hesitant that Akers played all 16 games for the Lions last year, and only made 19 FG in 24 attempts.

Much much lower than just about any kicker in the league.

Watch out for the Eagles kicker Parkey(?) he's probably going to win that fight with Alex H. He has FG of 54, 25, 53
