News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery missed his only field goal attempt from 28 yards out during a 42-7 loss to the Giants Week 17. Henery converted his lone extra point attempt. Sunday was just the second time this season Henery failed to convert a field goal.
Analysis: Henery converted a career-high 27 field goals in 2012. However, his Fantasy value took a major hit because he managed just 25 extra points after converting 46 extra points as a rookie in 2011. The Eagles had a trying season and it showed in Henery's numbers. He is a good kicker, but Henery will probably be just a low-end Fantasy option in drafts next summer.
News: Philadelphia kicker Alex Henery nailed two field goals on Sunday during the Week 16 loss to Washington. Henery made a long field goal of 38 yards in the game. He added two extra points to finish with eight points scored on the afternoon.
Analysis: Henery has been a so-so kicker this season for the Eagles but the team has been the real problem. He's only recorded double figures in scoring in three games this season and a lot of that is due to his offense. He hasn't connected on a 50-yard field goal all season and it appears the Eagles may go for it on fourth down a little more often with little left to play for. Henery is not a recommended Fantasy option for Week 17 at the Giants.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery racked up seven points during Thursday's contest against the Bengals in Week 15. Henery converted a 22-yard shot and a 20-yard shot, all in the second quarter. He also added an extra point in a 34-13 defeat.
Analysis: After missing two field goals his last time out, Henery was able to get back on track and turn in a decent performance. He has converted 25 of 28 attempts with 21 extra points this season. Fantasy owners should view him as a viable option in most formats heading into Week 16 at home against the Redskins.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery converted a 28-yard field goal in the second quarter to extend his field goals made streak to 22... and then promptly missed his next two attempts in the game to start a different, less-impressive field goal run.
Analysis: Henery's first miss was close -- he hit the left upright on a 58-yard try, after successfully converting a 53-yard attempt that was nullified by an illegal motion penalty. His 31-yard attempt in the third quarter, though, was of the traditional wide left variety. Henery is still a solid kicking option and can be started in most leagues heading into Week 15 against the Bengals.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery had a decent performance during Sunday's contest against the Cowboys in Week 13. Henery drilled a pair of 43-yard kicks in the second and fourth quarters, respectively. He also converted three extra points in a 38-33 defeat.
Analysis: Henery has converted a franchise record 21 consecutive field goal attempts and nearly finished with back-to-back double-digit outputs. He has made 22 of 23 attempts this season and should be viewed as a low-end option in deeper formats heading into Week 14 at Tampa Bay.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery made all three of his field-goal attempts in Week 12 against the Panthers. Henery connected from 36 yards out in the first quarter before connecting from 41 and 45 yards out in the second quarter. He also made his lone PAT attempt and finished with 10 points.
Analysis: Henery has now made a franchise record 19 straight field goals and was finally able to finish in double digits for the first time in five games. The Eagles offense has been terrible over the last few weeks, which has been limiting his chances of late. While he has been extremely accurate of late, only owners in deeper formats should consider rolling with Henery heading into Week 13 at Dallas.
News: Philadelphia kicker Alex Henery recorded two field goals in the Week 11 blowout loss at Washington. Henery has recorded 15 consecutive field goals, tying him for the fourth-longest streak in franchise history. Henery had a long of 42 yards in the game and did not add an extra point. He finished with six points.
Analysis: Henery has not recorded double figures in scoring in four straight games as the Eagles have had trouble scoring. We don't think it is going to get better anytime soon so he's not really the best Fantasy option for Week 12 against Carolina.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery made his lone field-goal attempt in Week 10 against the Cowboys. Henery connected from 40-yards out in the third quarter, which capped off a nine-play, 50-yard scoring drive. He also made 2 of his 3 extra-point attempts and finished with five points.
Analysis: Henery is now a perfect 14 for 14 in field goals on the season but has posted single-digit scoring in four of his last five games. With the Eagles' offense sputtering right now, Henery should only be starting in deeper formats when Philadelphia takes on the Redskins in Washington in Week 11.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery had a perfect night in Week 9 against the Saints. He made both of his field goals and converted his lone extra point in the 28-13 loss. Henery nailed a 22-yarder in the first half before hitting one from 37 yards out in the third quarter.
Analysis: Henery has posted single-digit scoring three out of the last four weeks as his Fantasy value has struggled along with the Eagles' offense. His inconsistencies make Henery more of a low-end option heading into Week 10 against the Cowboys.
News: After kicking three field goals in the team's last game Week 6 against the Lions, Eagles kicker Alex Henery was limited to only one -- a 33-yarder -- Week 8 against the Falcons. He also had two extra points. The five-point effort gives him six points or fewer in five of his seven games this season.
Analysis: Henery has missed only one field goal this season, so it's not like his struggles are his fault. The Eagles just haven't given him enough scoring opportunities. With their offense still searching for its identity, you can't count on Henery for consistent production in Fantasy. Consider him little more than a bye-week replacement.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery connected for three field goals Week 6 vs. Detroit. Henery made kicks of 26, 32 and 49 yards. He added two extra points and had 10-plus points for the second time in three games.
Analysis: Henery has managed multiple field goals in three of his last four games. Still, he is averaging just 7.2 points per week as the Eagles offense continues to be inconsistent and turnover prone. Henery remains more of a low-end Fantasy start. The Eagles are on a bye Week 7 and return to action Week 8 against the Falcons.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery had a quiet game Sunday at the Steelers in Week 5. Henery had no field goal attempts and made just two extra points.
Analysis: Henery will look to rebound in Week 6 against the Lions. He should be considered a low-end starting option against Detroit. He remains 8 of 9 on field goals this season.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery had a big day Sunday against the Giants in Week 4, as he went 4 for 4 on field goal attempts, including a 26-yard field goal with less than two minutes left in the game which gave the Eagles the lead in a 19-17 win. He hit from 20, 48, 35 and 26 yards in the game, and also nailed a point-after attempt, to give him 13 points on the day.
Analysis: Henery had been limited to either five or six points per game prior to Sunday, so this was a bit of a breakout. He is now 8 of 9 on the season, with his lone miss coming in the first game. He has made 88.9 percent of his tries in two NFL seasons, and can be considered a solid Fantasy kicker in all formats for Week 5 against the Steelers.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery supplied all of the points for his team in Week 3 against the Cardinals. He made both of his field goal attempts in the 27-6 loss. Henery connected from 36 yards out in the fourth quarter before nailing a 40-yarder later in the second half.
Analysis: Henery has made 4 of 5 field goals so far this season while converting all five of his extra points. The Eagles usually do more scoring than they showed on Sunday so owners should not get down about the 25-year-old just yet. Heading into Week 4 against the Giants, continue to view Henery as a viable option in the majority of Fantasy formats.
News: Philadelphia kicker Alex Henery recorded six points in the Week 2 win at home against the Ravens. Henery went 1 for 1 on field goals as he hit from 23 yards out. He added three PATs in the contest.
Analysis: Henery has been limited to going 2 for 3 on field goals in his first two games and has averaged 5.5 points per contest. He plays at Arizona Week 3 and the Cardinals have an excellent defense. Henery is just a borderline start for the Week 3 game.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery made a 42 yard field goal and missed a 45 yard field goal (wide left) against the Browns on Sunday.
Analysis: Henery is owned in 85 percent of leagues and shouldn't see too many more disastrous days like this one. The Eagles offense was putrid -- fumbling three times and throwing four interceptions -- stifling Henery's chances for field goals. Henery should still be started in most leagues, and will likely see his value rise as the Philly offense gets back on track. The Eagles face the Ravens in Week 2.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery connected from 43 and 51 yards on Saturday versus the Cowboys. He has hit 14 attempts in a row, tying him for the fifth longest streak in team history. Henery also hit both his extra-point attempts in the 20-7 win.
Analysis: Henery continues to be solid for Philly and started to garner some Fantasy attention at the end of the year. Fantasy owners should consider him a low-end option for Week 17.
News: Eagles K Alex Henery had a good game in Week 15, as Philadelphia scored 45 points in a win over the Jets. He made one field goal, a 28-yarder, and added six successful extra points.
Analysis: Henery has been a solid Fantasy option, but it would be nice to see him get more field goal attempts and less extra points. He hasnt been in double-digit scoring since Week 8 against Dallas. Luckily, he faced Dallas in Week 16, so he could be in line for another good game. Consider him a low-end starting option for Week 16.
News: Philadelphia K Alex Henery finished the Week 14 win at Miami with six points scored. Henery went 1 for 1 on field goals as he connected from 40 yards out in the contest. Henery went 3 for 3 on PATs for his six points scored.
Analysis: Henery was once again held under double-digits in scoring on Sunday against the Dolphins from Miami. The rookie kicker hasn't been in double figures in scoring since Week 8 against Dallas when he finished with 10 points. Henery has only topped single digits three times all season and could have trouble doing so in Week 15 against the Jets. New York's defense will certainly pose a stiff test for the Eagles Week 15, so Henery is considered no better than a low-end Fantasy start for the game.
News: Philadelphia kicker Alex Henery hit both his extra-point attempts on Thursday night in Seattle. The Eagles would lose the game, 31-14, as Henery did not have a field goal attempt in the contest. It was the first time all season he went without trying and connecting on at least one field goal.
Analysis: Henery has been pretty consistent for the Eagles this year, having made 17 of 21 field goals. But when he doesn't get a chance to kick the ball, there isn't much value for Fantasy owners. Consider him a low-end kicking option for Week 14 in Miami.
News: Eagles K Alex Henery had a perfect performance in Week 12 against the Patriots. He made both of his field goals and converted two extra points in the 38-20 loss. His made his field goals from distances of 22 and 43 yards.
Analysis: Henery has made 17 of 21 field goals so far this season while converting all 29 of his PATs. He benefits when the Eagles score a ton of points and could be in for a productive performance next week against the Seahawks. Continue to view Henery as a mid-range option in Fantasy heading into Week 13.
News: Philadelphia kicker Alex Henery booted a 33-yard field goal for the first points of the game. That was his only field-goal attempt of the game, but he did connect on both his extra-point attempts. The Eagles would win the game, 17-10, by beating the Giants.
Analysis: Henery has attempted two field goals in the past three games, which doesn't help Fantasy owners out too much. The Eagles face the Patriots in Week 12, a game that could be high scoring. Fantasy owners should view Henery as a mid-range kicking option for that contest.
News: Philadelphia K Alex Henery connected on his lone field-goal attempt and both extra-point tries during the Eagles' 21-17 loss to Arizona in Week 10. Henery booted a 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to give Philadelphia a short-lived three-point lead.
Analysis: Henery has now attempted just one field goal in his past two games as the Philadelphia offense remains inconsistent. The rookie kicker is now 15 of 18 overall this season and should be viewed as a mid-range option for Week 11 against the Giants.
News: Eagles K Alex Henery only saw one field goal attempt in Week 9 against the Bears. He connected from 47 yards in the second quarter, banking it in off the upright. Henery also converted three extra points in the 30-24 loss.
Analysis: Henery has done a decent job in his rookie campaign and has made 14 of 17 field goals thus far. While he has made just one from beyond 40 yards -- which came on Monday night -- he remains relevant in Fantasy with Philadelphia's high-scoring offense. Heading into Week 10 against the Cardinals, continue to view Henery as a viable option in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
News: Philadelphia kicker Alex Henery connected on all four of his extra-point attempts and nailed both his field goals in Week 8 against Dallas. He converted from 23 and 26 yards for the Eagles en route to a 34-7 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Henery continues to be the team's primary kicker and gets plenty of chances to kick with the Eagles' high octane offense. When things are clicking for Philly Henery has plenty of Fantasy value. Owners should continue to view him as a viable kicking option heading into Week 9 against the Bears.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery had a decent game in Week 6 in a win at Washington. Henery helped the Eagles defeat Washington, 20-13, as he recorded two field goals on two attempts. Henery nailed field goals from 28 and 24 yards, respectively, in the game. Henery added two extra points for a total of eight points on the Week 6 game.
Analysis: Henery has not been overly sharp this season as a rookie for the Eagles. That said, he continues to be the team's primary kicker and he's been solid week in and week out in terms of points scored as the Eagles have an explosive offense behind Michael Vick and company. Henery will remain a worthy starting Fantasy kicker going forward, though Philadelphia has a bye in Week 7, so owners should find another option. The Eagles return Week 8 at home against Dallas on Sunday night.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery hit a 35-yard field goal and three extra points at Buffalo in Week 5. Henery had missed three of his previous 11 field goal attempts.
Analysis: The rookie continues to benefit from playing with an explosive offense that gives him opportunities to kick, although they weren't quite as plentiful in this game. We'd still trust him as a viable option in Week 6 at Washington.
News: Eagles rookie kicker Alex Henery missed from 39 and 33 yards in the fourth quarter Week 4 against the 49ers and it ended up costing his team in a 24-23 loss. Henery did make three field goals from 32, 32 and 33 yards. He also hit on both of his extra points.
Analysis: Well, good things wins and losses don't count in Fantasy. Henery still had a pretty productive day despite the two easy misses, but he could have had a great Fantasy day with those two scores. The Eagles are going to give Henery plenty of scoring chances as long as he doesn't kick himself out of a job. Consider Henery a viable Fantasy kicker heading into Week 5 against the Bills.
News: Eagles kicker Alex Henery converted on three field goal attempts in Week 3 against the Giants, adding a point via a point after to finish with 10 points.
Analysis: Henery has converted five of six field goals in his first three games, though none have been longer than 38 yards. The Eagles offense figures to provide him with plenty of scoring chances this season, making him a viable option in standard 12-team leagues. The Eagles will host the 49ers in Week 4.
News: Eagles K Alex Henery had a productive game in Week 2 against the Falcons but he was unable to match an NFL record. He lined for a 63 yard field goal in the closing seconds of the first half but his attempt fell a good amount short. He would make a 22 yard field goal, though, and converted all four of his extra points in the 35-31 loss.
Analysis: Henery should continue to be a viable Fantasy option as long as he is kicking for the Eagles and their high-potent offense and could be needed even more in Week 3 if Michael Vick (concussion) is unable to play. Either way, consider Henery a No. 1 Fantasy K against the Giants next week.
News: Eagles K Alex Henery made his official NFL debut with seven points in Week 1 against the Rams in St. Louis. He converted on a 34-yard field goal and made each of his four extra-point attempts.
Analysis: Henery, who replaces one of the more consistent kickers of the last decade in David Akers, is in a good situation to score points with the Eagles. One of the more potent offenses in the NFL should continue to provide him with enough chances to contribute in Fantasy, making him a viable play in most 12-team leagues. He'll be indoors again in Week 2 at the Falcons.
News: The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Eagles rookie kicker Alex Henery, who made both of his field goals in the preseason opener against the Ravens, has had some inconsistent practices. But special teams coach Bobby April said Henery is improving at striking the ball, but his plant foot has been off at times. Certainly hes got to put those kicks through the uprights, April said. Hes got to perform. Hes missed a few, and I think hell come around.
Analysis: The Eagles are putting a lot of faith in the former Nebraska standout as they let veteran David Akers walk in the offseason. Henery hit on his field goals in the preseason opener, so he can perform in game situations. Henery doesn't have an NFL track record, but the fact he is the starting kicker on one of the better offenses in the NFL makes him a viable late-round pick as a low-end No. 1 Fantasy kicker.
News: K Alex Henery, who the Eagles selected with their fourth round pick out of Nebraska in April's NFL Draft, was able to reach an agreement with the team on Wednesday. He will be able to report to camp on time, and he is expected to replace veteran free agent David Akers.
Analysis: Henery has a big role awaiting him in 2011, which is why the team is willing to put stock in a kicker as a fourth-round pick. "If he ends up being what we think he ends up being, he'll lead the team in points for 10, 15 years," special teams coordinator Bobby April said in May. "That's a big weapon, now." Fantasy owners should eye Henery as a No. 1 option, and he's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues as long as the starting job is his.
News: The Philadelphia Daily News reports that Eagles special teams coordinator Bobby April said that while he understands the conventional draft strategy questions the value of drafting kickers, another way to look at it is, if rookie Alex Henery has a successful career, he will score far more points and have a much bigger impact than just about anyone else the Eagles could have drafted in the fourth round. "If he ends up being what we think he ends up being, he'll lead the team in points for 10, 15 years," April said. "That's a big weapon, now." Henery is expected to replace veteran free agent David Akers.
Analysis: It's not often we have high expectations for a rookie kicker, but Henery has the chance to help Fantasy owners right away. We like him as a No. 1 option, and he's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues.
News: The Eagles selected Nebraska kicker Alex Henery in the fourth round of April's draft, suggesting that Pro Bowl kicker David Akers is out of a job. Akers was designated with the transition tag earlier this offseason but apparently will not have the chance to sign it; the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Akers has been informed that he's out of a job but wouldn't comment on it. Henery made 68 of 75 field goals (90.6 percent) at Nebraska, and he also punted for the Huskers, but he didn't partake in kickoffs, which means he's on the Eagles to boot field goals and extra points above all else. Head coach Andy Reid wouldn't comment on his kickers other than to say that Henery was the best in football last season.
Analysis: The writing is on the wall: Henery will be the Eagles' kicker in 2011. Fantasy owners might find it hard to trust a rookie but there's no denying that whoever kicks for Philadelphia will have plenty of opportunities for points. Henery has the pedigree to be effective, but Fantasy owners should play it safe and pick up Henery off waivers during the season and not on Draft Day. A solid preseason could change that outlook, obviously.
