Pros: Reliability: Despite an accuracy dip last year (81.5 percent), Kasay hadn't been worse than 85.7 percent on field goals in his previous three years. Forty-one years old in October, Kasay can still net from long distance: five of six from between 40 and 49 yards in '09 and 11-for-12 the previous season.

Cons: The lefty boot has attempted 30-plus field goals just once in the last four seasons. The Panthers' offense overall isn't that explosive. Will he lose some kicking power with another season? He's only two of seven from 50-plus yards - he hasn't been allowed many chances from that range in recent years.

Fantasy tip: Kasay could be a useful matchup play during the season, but don't take him (or any kicker) before the final round, if necessary.
