Pros: The Giants' passing game expanded last season, giving Tynes more chances to accrue points. He attempted at least two PATs in all but three games last year and multiple field goals 10 of 16 contests. Tynes went 6-for-7 from 40 yards and beyond in '09 and is 13-for-14 between 40 and 49 yards in his last two full seasons. In those years combined, he attempted at least 42 one-pointers.

Cons: He missed two chip shots last year from less than 30 yards; he cited mechanical issues. In the last two seasons, he has suffered from knee and hamstring issues. Why should you have to worry about such things with your fantasy kicker? 

Fantasy tip: Tynes is generally being drafted among the top 10 boots, which is relatively justified given his experience. Again, don't draft him, or any kicker, at his 14th-round ADP.
