Lions waived K Alex Henery.
Henery missed three field goals in a last-second loss to the Bills Sunday. His confidence has been rattled for some time now, leading to him getting cut by the Eagles following the preseason. The Lions will host a bunch of kickers on Tuesday, a workout that should include experienced vets Matt Prater and Jay Feely. Mon, Oct 6, 2014 12:24:00 PM

Lions K Alex Henery missed three field goals in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Bills.

Henery lost his job in Philadelphia after earning a reputation for not making kicks in the clutch. Then he went 1-of-2 in his Lions debut last week before this job-losing performance. He missed twice from 44 yards and a potential game-winner from 50. Look for the Lions to pursue free agent Matt Prater, arguably the league's best kicker last year.

Alex Henery went 1-of-2 on field goals in his Lions debut.

Kicking outside in a road game against the Jets, Henery hit from 51 yards out and missed from 52. It was almost certainly enough for him to keep the high-upside job going forward. Henery now gets to go into the kicker-friendly confines of Ford Field for a home game against the Bills Week 5.

Lions will sign K Alex Henery.

Nate Freese bungled his big chance, missing four field goals in three games. Henery steps into a dream opportunity for production with the Lions, but recent accuracy woes caused him to lose his job in Philly. He'll be a boom or bust fantasy kicking option weekly.

Eagles waived K Alex Henery.

Henery has a weak leg and was just 1-of-3 on field goals this preseason, while producing just eight touchbacks on 17 kickoffs. He lost out to UDFA Cody Parkey, who has a booming leg and was acquired from the Colts this week.

Eagles K Alex Henery is 1-of-3 on field goals this preseason.

Henery is on thin ice in Philly, as evidenced by last week's trade for Cody Parkey. The incumbent remains the favorite, but we'd look for a kicker carrying more confidence into Week 1 for our fantasy roster.
Wed, Aug 27, 2014 09:36:00 AM

Coach Chip Kelly confirmed that Alex Henery is his No. 1 kicker.

Henery, who is facing competition in camp for the first time in his career, missed a 47-yarder in Friday's preseason game against the Bears. But UDFA Carey Spear aka "Murderleg" isn't a threat yet. "We need to get Alex as much work as he can possibly get," Kelly said. "It's clear in our mind that Alex is number one over Carey." The coach added that Henery has missed only two kicks in competitive situations during camp, going 5-of-5 from 50+ and 8-of-8 from 45-to-49 yards.

Alex Henery is facing competition this offseason for the first time in his career.

The Eagles signed Vanderbilt's Carey Spear, aka "Murderleg," as an UDFA. Henery connected on just 82.1 percent of his field goals last season, tied for 22nd in the league. He also struggled to kick the ball out of the end zone on kickoffs.
Wed, May 14, 2014 11:57:00 AM

Coach Chip Kelly expressed displeasure with the performance of K Alex Henery in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Saints.

Henery missed a 48-yard attempt and his kickoffs consistently sailed too low -- leading to a 39-yard return that set up the Saints' game-winning field goal as time expired. It's been a problem all year, as Henery couldn't even kick the ball out of the end zone in Minnesota's dome and he went just 23-of-28 on field goals. He should face competition in camp as he enters the final year of his contract in 2014.
Mon, Jan 6, 2014 11:37:00 AM

Alex Henery was 5-of-5 on field goals in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Giants.

None of the field goals were from further than 41 yards out, but it's a confidence booster. Henery came into Week 5 at just 12-of-15 on the season. With the Eagles churning up yardage yet scuffling in the red zone, he makes for a decent fantasy kicking option.
Mon, Oct 7, 2013 09:46:00 AM

Eagles K Alex Henery has missed a field goal in three straight games.

All three of Henery's misses were from 40-49 yards out, leaving him at 2-of-5 from that range on the season. He's going to get opportunities as part of the Eagles' fastbreak offense, but fantasy owners may want to put him on the shelf until he regains some confidence. Chargers K Nick Novak is a worthwhile plug-n-play this week as he'll be facing Oakland.
Tue, Oct 1, 2013 09:37:00 AM

Coach Chip Kelly said he went for it on fourth down a lot at Oregon because he didn't have a strong kicker.

Kelly has a reputation for being a riverboat gambler that often eschews field goals on fourth down. "I think there's fallacy and reality," he said. "If you don't have a guy that can kick a long field goal, what are you going to do when the ball is on the 37-yard line?" Eagles kicker Alex Henery went 11-of-13 from 40-plus yards out last year. We still wouldn't be surprised if Kelly's fourth-down aggressiveness costs Henery a handful of field goal chances.
Tue, Mar 26, 2013 08:15:00 AM

Eagles K Alex Henery reportedly kicked with a lot of confidence during offseason workouts.

Henery has no reason not to be confident. Over the final 12 games of last season, he went 16-for-16 on field goals. The second-year man is a strong fantasy kicking option in the Eagles' potentially explosive offense.
Fri, Jul 6, 2012 12:21:00 PM

Eagles K Alex Henery has made 14 consecutive field goals.

After a somewhat slow start to the season, Henery has shown the form that made him a fourth-round pick in the draft. He hasn't missed since Week 4 and hit a 51-yarder in Week 16. Henery projects as a top-10 fantasy kicking option in 2012.
Sun, Dec 25, 2011 12:46:00 PM

Special teams coordinator Bobby April isn't concerned about K Alex Henery after two back-breaking missed field goals in the fourth quarter last week.

April is working with Henery this week, but there's no real concern about a loss of confidence. "He was dying to kick the winning field goal," said April, "and that looked really genuine to me. That sounded, looked, unless he's a [heck] of an actor, he had every intention of kicking the winning field goal."
