Falcons K Matt Bryant (hamstring) was a full-go in Thursday's practice. That presumably means he'll return for this weekend's game against the Cowboys, sending K Giorgio Tavecchio back to the streets. Bryant is a fine fantasy option the rest of the way kicking for Atlanta's 8th-ranked scoring offense.
Falcons K Matt Bryant (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. So Atlanta will again roll with K Giorgio Tavecchio, who nailed 3 FGs and 2 XPs last time out. He’s a fine Week 9 fantasy play.
The Falcons have signed K Giorgio Tavecchio. He'll replace K Matt Bryant (hamstring) for at least this week. Tavecchio connected on a subpar 76% of his FG attempts for Oakland last year. But he's a viable Week 7 fantasy play with Atlanta sporting a big 30-point implied total on Monday night against the Giants.
Falcons K Matt Bryant is "likely" to miss next Monday night's game against the Giants with a hamstring injury suffered yesterday, HC Dan Quinn said. It sounds like Atlanta will sign K Giorgio Tavecchio to replace Bryant.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the Raiders have waived K Giorgio Tavecchio and signed K Mike Nugent to a 1-year deal. Tavecchio had been competing with Eddy Pineiro after stepping in for injured K Sebastian Janikowski as Oakland's kicker in 2017. Pineiro and Nugent will now compete for the 2018 job. That continued uncertainty makes either kicker a shaky option in current best-ball drafting. You're best off looking elsewhere.
The Raiders have placed K Sebastian Janikowski (back) on IR. They could bring him back as their "designated-to-return" player, but there's no reason to roster him in fantasy right now. K Giorgio Tavecchio was promoted from the practice squad and will kick for Oakland against the Titans tomorrow.
