PK Rian Lindell - Buffalo Bills
|6-3, 235||Born: 1-20-1977||College: Washington State||Drafted: ---|
Quick fantasy outlook: Although Lindell's field goal percentage has been solid the past two years, leg strength has been a concern. Last year the team was reluctant to give him longer attempts and his kickoffs were often short. Last year, the team drafted and utilized a kickoff specialist for awhile. When the team drafted Dustin Hopkins this year, it likely spelled the end of Lindell's career with the Bills. If Lindell does manage to hold off the younger competition, he'll again be working with long snapper Garrison Sanborn and probably with punter/holder Shawn Powell, although the latter has to hold off Brian Stahovich. Whoever wins the jobs will be working under a new coaching staff, including HC Doug Marrone, OC Nathaniel Hackett and STC Danny Crossman. The Bills have alternated between the middle and bottom of the rankings in kicker scoring opportunities the past four years (28th, 14th, 31st & 16th).
