Fantasy Football News - The Seattle Seahawks have placed kicker, Steven Hauschka, on injured reserve. He performed admirably last week with a sprained ankle while going 3/3 on field goals. On the season Hauschka was 24/27 on field goals. In a corresponding move, the Hawks signed longtime kicker Ryan Longwell to replace Hauschka for the post season. Longwell has not attempted a field goal for the NFL this season but has been one of the leagues best kickers since entering in 1997. In 2011 for the Vikings, Longwell had arguably his worst season which isn’t great news but in 2009/2010, he had two of his best in terms of accuracy. Luckily for Longwell, he gets to kick in doors for his first game back in Atlanta. FFLockerRoom Take - There isn’t a whole lot to take away from this. If you had set a lineup with Hauschka as your kicker, hopefully you have an opportunity to replace him. Many re-draft leagues draft a set team and there are no replacements, so if that is the case for you, sorry....
