Lions | David Akers still not at full strength

Detroit Lions PK David Akers (hernia) is still working his way back to full strength, and he did not work with the kickoff units in practice Friday, Aug. 2. PKs Sam Martin and Havard Rugland worked with the kickoff units, with Martin only simulating kicks and Rugland blasting three through the back of the end zone.

Fantasy Tip: Akers might require a kickoff specialist to be retained as the season opens, lessening wear and tear as he makes his way back from injury. However, he will still be kicking for a team which should score plenty of points, and therefore he will be a valuable fantasy asset.
