2018 Fantasy Outlook
A 27-year-old rookie last season, Tavecchio found his way to a starting job when Sebastian Janikowski injured his back shortly before Week 1. The Italian-born kicker only made 76.2 percent of his field-goal attempts, though he did go three of four from 50-plus yards and converted all but one of his PATs. It won't come as any surprise if undrafted rookie Eddy Pineiro ends up winning the kicking battle in Oakland. Read Past Outlooks

Will replace Matt Bryant on Monday night

Tavecchio will handle the Falcons' kicking duties in Week 7 against the Giants, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Coach Dan Quinn relayed an injury report on the radio Thursday morning, where he ruled out Matt Bryant (hamstring) in favor of the recently-signed Tavecchio. The 28-year-old converted 76.2 percent of his field goals last year with Oakland, and should see plenty of opportunities in what's expected to be a high-scoring affair indoors Monday night.
