The Detroit Lions released K Giorgio Tavecchio.

Tavecchio had been competing with Nate Freese for the place-kicking duties to replace David Akers, who struggled last season.

But Freese, a seventh-round draft pick, apparently has won the job.

Fantasy Impact: 

Freese should climb your rankings a bit especially if you're one to wait at the position. The Lions should be able to move the ball again this year and with their home games in a dome, Freese should produce decent numbers at the position to make him a low-end starter.
