Buccaneers | Lawrence Tynes receiving extensive treatment

Wed, 28 Aug 2013 10:07:10 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Lawrence Tynes (toe) has returned to his home in Kansas City, where he's receiving additional treatment for his case of MRSA. RB Brandon Jacobs tweeted that Tynes has received a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line. A PICC line is used when the patient is expected to receive antibiotics for more than a few days and allows him to return home yet still receive IV treatment, which can last for weeks or even months. The team seems likely to place him on the non-football-injury list to begin the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rian Lindell is the Bucs' kicker for now. Nick Folk or Dan Carpenter is likely to be looking for work soon, too, though. Last year the Bucs generated a decent run of opportunities for their booter, so the name could eventually matter for those who recycle.

Bills | Rian Lindell released

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 05:53:19 -0700

The Buffalo Bills released PK Rian Lindell. PK Dustin Hopkins will handle the kicking this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins is a sneaky play early in the season before the bad weather hits. The offense will go as C.J. Spiller goes. They could have some firepower that could lead the Bills into field-goal territory often. Hopkins makes a good matchup play and worthy of watching on your waiver wire.

Bills | Rian Lindell hasn't separated himself

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 15:34:28 -0700

Buffalo Bills PKs Rian Lindell and Dustin Hopkins haven't separated themselves in the competition at place kicker this preseason. Each kicker attempted 12 field goals in practice Wednesday, Aug. 14; Lindell was 11-for-12 with a miss coming from 45 yards and Hopkins was 10-for-12 with his misses coming from 35 yards and 47 yards. Hopkins has great leg strength but is trying to fix his approach and follow through.

Fantasy Tip: Lindell is the favorite to win the job, but based on his performance thus far and the uncertainty surrounding the team's QB position, it wouldn't be wise to select him as your PK in your fantasy draft.

Sat, 13 Jul 2013 09:12:48 -0700

Buffalo Bills PK Dustin Hopkins said he knows he has to improve his field goal accuracy if he wants to beat out PK Rian Lindell for the team's kicker job. "Just accuracy, consistency," Hopkins said. "It's the typical things, finishing downfield, keeping my hips square. A lot like a golf swing, just trying to fine tune those small things that make you successful."

Bills | John Potter could win roster spot

Tue, 31 Jul 2012 19:50:33 -0700

Buffalo Bills PK John Potter could very well make the 53-man roster as a kickoff specialist. Even though he successfully converted a 59-yard field goal in practice Tuesday, July 31, PK Rian Lindell is considered safe.
