10/4/2010 10:03:00 AM
Description: Bryant made three field goals, including the game-winner, against San Francisco on Sunday.
Insight: Bryant is a solid fantasy kicker as the Falcons should continue to give him plenty of opportunities. (RapidDraft.com)
 
8/16/2010 12:17:00 PM
Description: The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports the Falcons' release of Steven Hauschka confirms that Bryant has won the team's placekicking job.
Insight: Bryant could be worth a look in fantasy leagues, as the Falcons' offense should provide him with ample opportunities. (Rapid Draft.com)
 
1/13/2010 11:03:00 AM
Description: According to Atlanta Falcons.com, Falcons' head coach Mike Smith insinuated that Bryant will be the team's kicker next season.
Insight: Bryant replaced Jason Elam in Week 13 this season and went 7-for-10 on field goal attempts. He is under contract through next season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/28/2009 11:22:00 AM
Description: According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Bryant (hamstring) likely will not be able to kick in Week 17.
Insight: The Falcons are once again in the market for a kicker. The top avaiable options, as it were, are probably Nick Folk and Paul Edinger. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/2/2009 9:50:00 AM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, via Twitter, the Falcons have signed Bryant.
Insight: Bryant will replace Jason Elam, who has struggled this season. But with Atlanta already without QB Matt Ryan (right toe) and possibly RB Michael Turner (right ankle) for Week 13, don't rush out and add Bryant until we see how the Falcons' offense functions with Chris Redman under center. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/1/2009 11:43:00 AM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bryant will have a tryout with the Falcons on Tuesday.
Insight: Paul Edinger will also reportedly join Bryant as the Falcons try out some kickers in light of Jason Elam's struggles this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
10/6/2009 12:24:00 PM
Description: According to Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News, via Twitter, the Giants will workout Bryant on Tuesday.
Insight: This may just be a wake up call to incumbent kicker Lawrence Tynes, who is 10-for-13 on field goals this season with two misses under 30 yards. (SportsBuff.com)
 
9/25/2009 1:30:00 PM
Description: According to the Tampa Tribune, via Twitter, Bryant was in Cleveland meeting with the Browns on Friday morning.
Insight: Bryant does not appear to be a threat to Phil Dawson's job. He is more likely to end up back in Tampa Bay if Mike Nugent continues to struggle. (SportsBuff.com)
 
9/1/2009 10:04:00 AM
Description: Bryant(hamstring) is reportedly about to be cut after saying he can't compete with Mike Nugent this week. (St. Petersburg Times)
Insight: Nugent will apparently win the Buccaneers' kicking job, but his fantasy value is limited unless the Buccaneers' offense suddenly becomes explosive. (SportsBuff.com0
 
8/25/2009 10:52:00 AM
Description: There is no timetable for Bryant's return from a hamsring injury. (CBSSports.com)
Insight: If Bryant is out for a significant period of time, Mike Nugent is likely to win the job as Buccaneers' kicker. Whoever wins the job has limited fantasy upside, but could get plenty of field goal chances. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/17/2009 2:24:00 AM
Description: Bryant hit 32-of-38 field goals and connected on 35 extra points last season with Tampa Bay.
Insight: Bryant is expected to battle in camp with free agent signing Mike Nugent. Nugent is younger and has more upside so Bryant could very well be out of a job. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/18/2008 3:51:00 PM
Description: Bryant has been a solid No. 1 K all season long, overcoming personal tragedy, and putting up career numbers. He had a quiet week last week which means he could have a huge week against San Diego.
Insight: Bryant will get his chances in the red-zone this week against San Diego. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Hot11/2/2008 6:25:00 PM
Description: Bryant had another nice day for Tampa. He made all three of his field goals, including a 34-yard game winner in OT.
Insight: Bryant has been a steady source of points as a kicker. His low game was six in Week 2 and he had 12 in Week 4 against the Packers. He has only missed three kicks and none with 40 yards. (SportsBuff.com)
 
9/24/2008 8:09:00 PM
Description: Bryant might miss the Week 4 contest following the sudden death of his infant son on Wednesday.
Insight: It's tough to imagine what could be much worse than this. We'll see whether Bryant will be available for the game, but that's pretty unimportant right now. (SportsBuff.com)
