Pros: Parties hard. OK, seriously, he has posted a field goal accuracy of at least 87.1 percent in each of the last three seasons. A suspended Ben Roethlisberger and a traded Santonio Holmes might mean more field goal chances and fewer extra points. Reed is generally regarded as a clutch kicker.

Cons: Reed has made only one 50-plus-yarder in the last three years, while only attempting five such kicks in that time. His long last year was just 46 yards. The vet hasn't topped 31 field goal attempts in his last five seasons; Pittsburgh scores ample touchdowns when their lineup is intact.

Fantasy tip: Avoid drafting Reed. He's too inconsistent to rely on week to week. In the right matchup, he could be useful, but don't overpay because of his team's name value.
