  • Michael Badgley Makes Three Of Four Kicks In Loss

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley made both of his extra point attempts but missed one of his two field goal attempts in the 28-25 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He ultimately delivered a 51-yard game-tying field goal late in the fourth quarter but wasn't a great fantasy option with a lack of kicking opportunities. The Lions offense is one of the best units in football so Badgley has some upside, but head coach Dan Campbell often goes for it on fourth down, so he doesn't have a secure floor.

  • Michael Badgley Has Some Upside In Week 12

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley always has a chance to boom in fantasy football tied to a solid Lions' offense, but since head coach Dan Campbell loves to be aggressive and go for it on fourth down, his kicking opportunities are sometimes limited. The Lions could put up plenty of points against the Buffalo Bills, even if they are in garbage time, so he does have at least some upside. Ultimately, no teams are on a bye and all kickers are in play, so he's not someone to strongly consider.

  • Michael Badgley Makes Five Kicks In Win

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley made his lone field goal attempt and all four of his extra point attempts in the win over the New York Giants in Week 11. The Lions' offense remains a solid unit, so he has some upside, but the aggressive nature of Dan Campbell often takes field goal attempts off the board. There are usually better streaming options that Badgley, so he doesn't enter the fantasy radar with this performance.

  • Michael Badgley A Boom-Or-Bust Play

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley should be viewed as a boom-or-bust play in Week 11 against the New York Giants. The Lions' offense has proven capable of scoring points in bunches, but head coach Dan Campbell loves to roll the dice on fourth down. Coming into Week 11, the Lions have attempted the second-most fourth-down conversion attempts (23), so Badgley is always at risk of having his kicking opportunities taken away. That said, there are probably safer options to stream, but he does ultimately have upside.

  • Michael Badgley Makes All Five Kicks In Week 10

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley made his lone field goal attempt and all four of his extra point attempts in the 31-30 win over the Chicago Bears. The Lions' offense is evidently good again, so Badgley has some upside moving forward. He's far from a safe option since Dan Campbell loves to roll the dice on fourth down, but he's a better option than some of the kickers that are more heavily rostered than he is.

  • Michael Badgley Not On The Fantasy Radar

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley has no real floor in fantasy football since head coach Dan Campbell is one of the most aggressive decision-makers on fourth down. Even when the Lions' offense scores a ton of points. Badgley isn't guaranteed field goal opportunities. He could have a boom week here and there, but with plenty of options on the waiver wire, he's low on the fantasy kicker totem pole until further notice.

  • Michael Badgley Makes Only Extra-Point Attempt

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley posted just one fantasy point after he was only given one scoring opportunity on a lone extra point attempt. The Lions won against the Green Bay Packers with its defense and opted to go for a two-point conversion after its first touchdown. Since Dan Campbell likes to pass up field goals for fourth-down conversion attempts, Badgley has essentially no floor.

  • Michael Badgley A Boom-Or-Bust Option

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley hasn't made a huge fantasy impact this season, but since the team has one of the best offenses in the NFL, he certainly has upside. That said, Detroit often opts to go for it on fourth down, so his range of outcomes is wide. He should be considered in deep leagues with 14-plus teams, but there are probably better options on waivers in traditional 10-to-12-person fantasy leagues since his production is contingent on a ton of factors outside of his control.

  • Michael Badgley Makes All Five Kicks

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley made both of his field goal attempts and all three of his extra points, so it was a solid fantasy output for the veteran. If the Lions' offense gets back to where it was during the first month of the season, Badgley could have big fantasy days moving forward. For now, it's too early to tell if he's worth picking up, but he is very much on the fantasy radar heading into a Week 9 matchup with the Green Bay Packers.

  • Michael Badgley Signs With Lions

    The Detroit Lions have signed kicker Michael Badgley to their active roster. The 27-year-old has spent each of the last two weeks on the practice squad. Now, it appears the team will officially sign Badgley. He was perfect on his kicks last week and appears to be a reliable option. However, the Lions offense hasn't been too sharp lately. Badgley will be a desperation streaming option for fantasy managers in need of a kicker for Week 8.

  • Michael Badgley Has Wide Range Of Outcomes

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley's fantasy outlook is dependent on which version of the Jared Goff-led offensive attack shows up against Miami. However, the Lions have proven to take chances and be aggressive on fourth down, so he could bust even if the offense is potent. There's a scenario where he kicks a few field goals and several extra points, but it's tough to project based on the Lions' last two games, in which they were held without a touchdown. There are better options to stream for Week 8.

  • Michael Badgley Makes Both Field-Goal Attempts

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley connected on field goal attempts of 53 and 40 yards, so he'll likely hang on to the Lions' place-kicking job after some doubt that would happen. However, the Lions' offense has failed to score touchdowns in each of its last two games, so Badgley's ceiling might not be high if the team continues to struggle. When Detroit's offensive weapons get healthy, there could be more scoring opportunities moving forward.

  • Michael Badgley Elevated From Practice Squad

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys. Badgley kicked for the Chicago Bears three weeks ago, going 4-for-4, but he was held off the scoreboard during his Lions debut the week after. Clearly, Badgley has been bouncing around and is looking to earn a more stable roster spot. He has a chance to do so this coming Sunday.

  • Michael Badgley Held Off Scoreboard In Loss

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley was just signed to this team late in the week but he was held to zero points in his debut. He never attempted a kick, so it's tough to know what his rest-of-season outlook is. That said, the Lions offense should bounce back after the team's Week 6 bye, so he could have some fantasy value later in the year.

  • Austin Seibert Waived, Michael Badgley To Kick For Lions

    The Detroit Lions waived kicker Austin Seibert (groin) on Friday, so Michael Badgley will do the kicking for the team in Week 5 against the New England Patriots. Seibert missed last week's loss to the Seattle Seahawks and missed three of his five field-goal attempts in his first three games this year. The Lions are moving on to Badgley, starting this Sunday against New England. The 27-year-old made all four of his field-goal attempts with the Chicago Bears last week in the loss to the New York Giants, and now he'll try to stick with Detroit. The Lions offense has surprisingly been one of the best in the league through four weeks, but fantasy managers should be looking for other kicking options in Week 5.

  • Lions Waive K Dominik Eberle, To Add K Michael Badgley

    After beginning the season out of football, Michael Badgley could play for two NFC North teams in two weeks.

  • Michael Badgley Signed With Bears, Elevated To Active Roster

    Fifth-year kicker Michael Badgley was signed by the Chicago Bears on Saturday after working out for the team on Friday. He was quickly elevated to the active roster with starting kicker Cairo Santos (personal) questionable to suit up in Week 4. Badgley began 2021 with the Tennessee Titans but was later added by the Indianapolis Colts, for whom he started 12 games and converted on 18 of 21 field goal attempts. Santos and Badgley can both be left on waiver wires as Chicago's offense has not been effective enough to warrant fantasy consideration for either.

  • Bears Audition Michael Badgley, Josh Lambo

    The Bears may need a kicker for their Week 4 game, and they are turning to the workout circuit to find a fill-in option. The team excused Cairo Santos from practice Thursday for personal reasons, per the Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs, and the veteran specialist was not there Friday. With no kicker currently on the […]
