Lions | David Akers shows off leg strength

Detroit Lions PK David Akers had a successful 63-yard field goal off the right goalpost in practice Monday, Aug. 19, and any doubts about his leg strength after an injury-plagued 2012 should be put to rest.

Fantasy Tip: Technically, Akers is still involved in a position battle with Havard Rugland, but the starter is believed to be Akers. With Detroit's high-octane offense, a healthy Akers should re-emerge as a fantasy must-start option.
