Bryant connected one a 45-yard field goal and five extra points in Sunday's win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The crafty veteran is proving to be a reliable and productive kicker for the Falcons and fantasy owners alike, having made 24 field goals this season, and his only two misses have come from over 50 yards. In this explosive offense, Bryant will continue to get many kicking opportunities.

Bryant hit two field goals and three extra points in Sunday's win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant has been accurate as ever this season, and he'll continue to get plenty of kicking opportunities in this electric offense. Although he won't be kicking in a dome this week, the Falcons travel to Tampa Bay, who are allowing 27 points a game this see, meaning Bryant should have plenty of chances to sweep the leg.

Bryant connected on three field goals and three extra points in Sunday's overtime loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Although he hit six kicks, it's the seventh one that will bother Bryant when looking back at this game. The 41-year-old hit the left upright from 58 yards as time expired in the 4th, and the Falcons eventually fell to the Chargers in overtime. It was an ambitious attempt for the veteran kicker, and although he had the distance, it came down just left of the intended target. That was Bryant's only miss of the season, so he's still a top tier kicker on an explosive offense.

Bryant (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday in Denver, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With 40 points on the season, Bryant currently sits third in scoring, but the Broncos' defense is ranked fifth in points allowed (16) per game, so opportunities may be few and far between for the 15-year veteran.

Bryant (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Falcons' No. 1 scoring offense has been a boon for Bryant's prospects, and he hasn't disappointed, making all eight field goal tries and every one of his 16 PATs. With 40 points on the ledger, he sits behind just Dustin Hopkins and Mike Nugent in the scoring department, but a limited practice Wednesday causes some concern for Bryant's Week 5 availability.

Bryant hit two chip shot field goals and all three extra points in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Both of his field goal attempts were shorter than his extra point attempts, but it's good to see the veteran showing off some accuracy, even if it is from close range. Bryant is a good play Week 3 against the Saints.

Bryant connected on a 27-yard field goal and hit both of his extra points in Thursday's preseason finale against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant had missed some time during training camp with an undisclosed injury, but it appears that's behind him now. The fact that he made all three of his attempts while Shayne Graham missed a 32-yard attempt bodes well for the veteran's chance of winning the job. We'll know for sure come Saturday.

Bryant will not play in Thursday's preseason matchup with Miami for undisclosed reasons.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant is coming off of an injury shortened 2015 that saw him connect on just 14-of-18 field goals. Entering his age-40 season, the veteran kicker is competing with Shayne Graham, who replaced Bryant for the final six games of the season last year, for the kicker spot. Bryant's absence will give Graham a few extra in game reps in Thursday's game.
