Falcons | Matt Bryant sidelined

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 14:23:25 -0700

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (undisclosed) will not kick again until Sunday, Aug. 28, because of muscle tightness. PK Shayne Graham will be the kicker for the preseason game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bryant or Graham will be the kicker for Week 1, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Owners may want to look for other kickers until more is known about Bryant's injury.

Falcons | Matt Bryant's season over

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 13:34:18 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) has been placed on the Reserve/Injured list, ending his season. PK Shayne Graham will take over the kicking duties in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: You can now obviously drop Bryant in all traditional leagues. Graham will likely be more of a midrange kicking option for the remainder of the season.

Falcons | Matt Bryant to miss game

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:36:24 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) will not play in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers. PK Shayne Graham will get the call for kicks against the Panthers.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme, Matt Bryant limited

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 13:29:42 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (shoulder) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec.10.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme (4,600, 9.2% of cap) should still play but he doesn't have the most favorable matchup against the Carolina Panthers. Bryant has not been available the last two games, so you may want to consider another kicker in seasonal leagues.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme, Matt Bryant limited

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 16:39:38 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (shoulder) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) were both limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be available to play against the Carolina Panthers this weekend, but the matchup suggests you should look elsewhere for your tight end. Bryant has missed the last two games and should be left to the waiver wire in traditional leagues.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson, Matt Bryant out

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 09:28:17 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) have been ruled out for Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: With the Buccaneers secondary being very vulnerable, Roddy White ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) certainly becomes interesting as a deep sleeper with Hankerson out of action again. Expect Julio Jones ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) to be heavily owned, too.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson, Matt Bryant out

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 14:53:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Both Hankerson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Bryant seem to be fighting an uphill battle to play this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Look to Roddy White ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) as a sleeper play with the Bucs being a top-10 fantasy matchup for wideouts this year.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson, Matt Bryant sit

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 15:13:00 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will need to be monitored throughout the rest of the week. If he is unable to play then Roddy White would become a decent flyer for FantasyScore lineups. As for Bryant, there should be some viable starting kickers available on waivers if he doesn't play this weekend.

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 11:21:40 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) was out of practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant looks really iffy for Week 12 against the Minnesota Vikings. Shayne Graham was picked up today, and he's not a great kicking option this week.

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 14:58:27 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant has made 14 of his 18 field goal tries this year and all 26 of his extra points. He should remain a viable kicking option in all traditional fantasy football leagues and is a fine play against the Minnesota Vikings.

Falcons | Matt Bryant gets extension

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 14:40:42 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant signed a contract extension Wednesday, Feb. 25. Details were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: While kickers may be the most flexible position in fantasy football, Bryant was one of just five kickers to play in at least 15 games and make 90% of his field goals. He's a top-tier candidate heading into 2015.

Falcons | ATL has talked with Matt Bryant

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 04:07:20 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant and the team have had contract talks, but no substantial progress has been made. Bryant's agent will meet once again with the Falcons this weekend in Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant will be 40 in May but he scored 127 points and kicked seven field goals from a distance of 50 yards or greater. He only missed three kicks as well, so it was a fairly successful season all around. Bryant is a strong fantasy play for 2015.

Falcons | Matt Bryant set to be free agent

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 16:42:53 -0800

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant is set to become an unrestricted free agent this March.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran Bryant (age 40 in May) hit 29 of his 32 field goal attempts in 2014 (90.6%) and was 7-for-10 on kicks of 50-plus yards. He was helped by kicking half of his games inside a dome in Atlanta. He'll remain a high-end kicking option if he lands with a favorable team this offseason or remains in Atlanta.
