Atlanta’s disastrous 4-12 finish left Bryant as little more than a middle-tier fantasy option most places, with the 39-year-old seeing 11 fewer field goal attempts and five fewer PATs than the season ...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Coming off a season in which he nailed a career-high 33 field goals and scored 143 points, Bryant has the good fortune of playing nine games in domed stadiums this year and will have his point totals further propped up by a strong Falcons offense. Moreover, Bryant expanded his range last season, hitting 4-of-4 field goals from over 50 yards – two fewer than the total for his entire career. At 38, Bryant is not getting any younger, but his 89.8 percent accuracy rate over his three full seasons in Atlanta makes him one of the most reliable kickers on the board.

2012

Bryant’s 2011 campaign was remarkably similar to that of his previous year. He had just two fewer field-goal attempts (29) and one more PAT (45) while improving his field-goal accuracy from 90.3 percent in 2010 to 93.1 percent last season. The stability of the Atlanta offense under quarterback Matt Ryan and eight games in the comfort of the Georgia Dome should allow Bryant another strong season. The only downside is he’s not a threat from long range – he’s made only six 50-yarders in his 10-year career, including two last year.

2011

Bryant had to win the place-kicking job in training camp last season, but he won't have to compete for it this year. Bryant finished fourth in kicker scoring last season with 128 points and was an impressive 28-of-31 on field-goal attempts. The Falcons ranked third in red-zone touchdowns with 35, which probably cost Bryant a few field-goal attempts; his 31 attempts were ninth in the league while his 90.3 field-goal percentage ranked fourth. The Falcons have a solid offensive nucleus with quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Michael Turner and wide receiver Roddy White. Adding playmaking receiver Julio Jones through the draft figures to help the Falcons' explosiveness. Atlanta ranked eighth with 56 red-zone trips in 2010, and the Falcons should give Bryant plenty of scoring opportunities this season. Bryant is not a long-range threat – he's made four 50-plus-yard field goals in his nine-year career – but he's missed just one field goal inside 30 yards the last five years, and his only miss from 30-39 yards since 2003 came on a blocked kick last season. Bryant has the benefit of kicking in a dome and no potential late-season bad-weather games with two domes on the road schedule in December. Bryant should be one of the top kickers again in 2011.

2010

Perhaps no team from a statistical perspective was a bigger disappointment than the Falcons last season. Both Matt Ryan and Michael Turner suffered injuries, and Jason Elam was released after missing 7-of-19 field goals. Bryant was brought in and connected on 7-of-10 field goals, though he was just 1-of-4 from beyond 40 yards. Bryant is coming off two strong seasons in Tampa Bay, averaging almost 125 points and 30 field-goal makes. If the health of Ryan and Turner returns, expect an upward trend for the Falcons kicker in 2010.

2009

Bryant exceeded expectations last season with 131 points (4th) thanks to an offense that gave him a career-high 38 field-goal attempts. The Buccaneers entered the red zone with regularity (56 RZ trips, 10th in league) but not the end zone, scoring touchdowns on just 39.3 percent of their trips inside the 20 (30th). Fewer red-zone trips might be expected this season, as the candidates to replace the departed Jeff Garcia include the likes of Luke McCown, Byron Leftwich and rookie Josh Freeman. The team, however, signed Derrick Ward to revamp the running game. Bryant doesn’t have a strong leg (0-for-6 the last two years combined from 50-plus, and just 5-of-11 from 40-plus last year), so the team brought in former Jet Mike Nugent to compete with him for the job. Nugent was 29-of-36 in 2007, (6-of-8 from 40-49), before missing most of last season with a thigh injury.

2008

Bryant had an impressive 118 points last season as the Buccaneers surprised many by winning the NFC South. The Buccaneers might backslide just a bit as the schedule is more difficult this season (Green Bay and Dallas), which could impact Bryant's numbers. The offense is solid, but not spectacular, so Bryant should finish about middle of the pack. Bryant is also downgraded in leagues that offer bonuses for makes beyond 50-plus yards, as he has made just two in his career.

2007

Tampa Bay has finished near the bottom of kicker scoring each of the last four seasons; Bryant made just 17 field goals in 2006 and had 73 total points. While Bryant’s point total could rise with the addition of quarterback Jeff Garcia and/or the return to health of Chris Simms, there wasn’t enough of an overhaul of the Tampa Bay offense to get Bryant the opportunities necessary to be a useful fantasy kicker.

2006

Since Martin Gramatica’s career went off the rails in 2003, the Buccaneers have had trouble with the kicking game. Bryant hit 21-of-25 of his attempts in 2005, including 11-of-13 from beyond 40 yards. The club wasted little time re-signing him in the offseason.

2005

Martin Gramatica kicked himself out of a job and a competition in training camp will determine Tampa Bay’s next kicker. Bryant is the favorite for the job after hitting 40-of-50 FGA in three seasons but has missed six times (18-of-24, 75 percent) from 30-39 yards. Bryant’s competition for the job, Todd France, bounced around training camps the last three years, but has yet to attempt a field goal in a game. When Gramatica was on, the Bucs were among the league-leaders in team kicking points, so the position can provide fantasy value.
