Steelers' K Hartley not looking good for Wk 1-- Sun Aug 30 7:00 am --
Garrett Hartley departed with a right hamstring injury that occurred on his kickoff after his 28-yard field goal. “It didn’t look positive in terms of the opener” at New England Sept. 10, said coach Mike Tomlin about Hartley’s injury.(Pittsburgh Post Gazette)
FF Today's Take:Hartley kicked off then promptly limped to sidelines clutching the back of his leg. Expect the team to sign another kicker in the coming days. Hartley should be avoided in all fantasy drafts.
Kicker Garrett Hartley looks good on first day -- Wed Aug 12 9:00 pm --
Shaun Suisham placed on IR
LATROBE, Pa. - On the day the Steelers’ officially ended Shaun Suisham’s season, Garrett Hartley got his kicks with his new team. The new kicker had arrived at St. Vincent College on Tuesday. Hartley hit 11 of 13 attempts from both hash marks with Greg Warren doing the snapping and punters Brad Wing and Jordan Berry handling the holding.
FF Today's Take:Hartley steps into a nice situation in Pittsburgh. The Steelers finished as a top 10 scoring offense in 2014 and should provide plenty of scoring opportunities again this season.
