Pros: In each of his last two seasons as a starting boot ('07 and '08), Bryant attempted at least 33 field goals, producing serviceable 84.5 percent accuracy. The Falcons' offense is becoming a well-oiled machine and can move the ball at will. The 35-year-old leg won't have to deal with many elements inside the Georgia Dome for half the season.

Cons: He's competing for the job with Steven Hauschka. Distance field goals elude Bryant (1-for-4 on 40-plus kicks last year), which limits his weekly upside unless he attempts more than a few three-pointers.

Fantasy tip: Bryant can be considered slightly undervalued, as far as kickers are concerned. He isn't being drafted in most setups, but Hauschka is. Still, it's probably best to save Bryant for the post-draft wire and keep tabs of his in-season matchups. His leg isn't too strong, so you must root for quantity with his attempts.
