The Falcons have signed K Matt Bryant to a 1-year, $3 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Atlanta released Bryant in February but needed him back after K Giorgio Tavecchio struggled mightily this preseason. Bryant connected on 20 of 21 FG attempts and 33 of 35 XPs in 13 games last year. He finished 15th among Ks in fantasy points per game. He's a viable option this year kicking for a high-powered Falcons offense.
Update: Atlanta has officially waived Tavecchio and K Blair Walsh. So it's Bryant.
The Falcons have signed K Blair Walsh. He'll put some heat on K Giorgio Tavecchio, who has missed 4 of 8 FG attempts this preseason. Avoid this situation in fantasy drafts for now.
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 Browns. K Giorgio Tavecchio gets another start and is a fine fantasy option.
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.
