Free-agent PKs Jay Feely (Bears), Alex Henery (Lions) and Garrett Hartley (Browns) will work out for the Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday, Aug. 11, now that PK Shaun Suisham (knee) is done for the season.
Fantasy Tip: Suisham was a strong-footed kicker that had plenty of fantasy relevance. You won't be able to say that about whoever the Steelers sign to replace him, and they won't be very attractive fantasy booters in a stadium that often features inclement weather.

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 09:43:56 -0700
Detroit Lions PK Alex Henery was released Monday, Oct. 6.

Detroit Lions PK Alex Henery misfired on three field goal attempts in the Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills, but he was able to tack on a pair of extra points.
Fantasy Tip: Henery is already the second kicker for the team this season, as the woes for the Lions continue in the kicking game. Fantasy owners need to stay far away. Twitter was blowing up Sunday, speculating that the Lions should look into free-agent Matt Prater to solve their problems.

Although the Detroit Lions just signed free-agent PK Alex Henery (Eagles), the team may look at free-agent PK Matt Prater (Broncos) if Henery falters. Henery missed a 52-yard field goal last week against the New York Jets but made one from 51 yards out.
Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:50:39 -0700
Detroit Lions PK Alex Henery converted one of his two field goal attempts while tacking on three extra points in the Week 4 win against the New York Jets. His successful kick was from 51 yards, and his missed field goal was wide right from 52 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Henery was signed this week to replace the ineffective Nate Freese, and the former Eagles kicker did a good job. He'll be kicking for a high-octane offense, and he has re-emerged as a Top 15 fantasy option as a result.
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:41:00 -0700
Detroit Lions PK Nate Freese was waived Monday, Sept. 22, and the team signed free-agent PK Alex Henery (Eagles) to an undisclosed deal to take his place. Freese made just three of seven field goal tries this year, with all four misses coming on kicks from 40 yards or more.
Fantasy Tip: Henery may be a cheap option to start out for the Lions, and he's worth a look this weekend at FantasyScore against the New York Jets.
Mon, 22 Sep 2014 08:21:08 -0700
Detroit Lions PK Nate Freese appears to have lost his job, and the team plans to sign free-agent PK Alex Henery Monday, Sept. 22.
Fantasy Tip: Henery will have some low-end PK value due to the offense's explosive ability. Look to acquire him if you had Freese or have to cover a buy week.

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 17:23:55 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles PK Alex Henery is expected to be cut, as two individuals with knowledge of the situation said Friday, Aug. 29, that PK Cody Parkey has landed a spot on the 53-man roster.
Fantasy Tip: The move is not yet official, but if Henery is out of a job in Philly, he is likely to land on his feet elsewhere. Still, for fantasy purposes, avoid him at all costs. If you already drafted Henery, dump him and grab Parkey, who will kick for a high-octane offense.
Sun, 17 Aug 2014 23:24:26 -0700
Despite missing a 47-yard field goal in his last exhibition game, Philadelphia Eagles PK Alex Henery is in no danger of losing his job, according to coach Chip Kelly.
Sun, 29 Jun 2014 23:38:59 -0700
Because PKs Alex Henery and Carey Spear are struggling, it is possible the team could bring in a new kicker. Henery can hit field goals but has no distance on kickoffs, while Spear is just the opposite. Both specialists could be unseated by a free agent signing like PK Rob Bironas (Titans).
Mon, 16 Jun 2014 14:37:56 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles PK Alex Henery has to improve his kickoffs and long field goals, according to special teams coach Dave Fipp. Henery's kickoffs in particular have not been up to par.
Fantasy Tip: There is no cause for concern at this point in the offseason. Henery is a borderline starting kicker attached to a high-powered offense.

At the end of the game Saturday, Jan. 4, coach Chip Kelly was reluctant to talk about the future of his kicker but admitted his dissatisfaction with how Henery hit kickoffs during the loss. "We'll address that moving forward," Kelly said after Saturday's loss. "We're not playing a game tomorrow."
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 15:37:29 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said the team will be sticking with PK Alex Henery even though he has made only two of his five field goal attempts this season. "I do have confidence in him," Kelly said. "I know [special teams coordinator Dave Fipp] has confidence in him, I think he's a real accurate kicker. But from a kicking standpoint, I'm pretty confident in him."
