Bryant went 8-for-8 on extra point attempts Thursday against the Bucs.
Bryant's lone missed kick came at the end of the first half from 59 yards, so he can hardly be faulted for missing. Bryant will continue to get plenty of kicking opportunities in an offense that rolled over the Bucs even without Roddy White, who was out with a hamstring injury. A potent offense and a home dome to kick in are a recipe for success.

Bryant had a big day Sunday, knocking through three field goals including two from over 50 yards to help the Falcons seal an overtime win over the Saints.
Bryant's three kicks came from 40, 51 and 52 yards, and he tallied four extra points on the day. He may not be so accurate if he's forced to try these kicks in the elements, but he's got seven more home games and a few road games where he'll be kicking in ideal conditions. He's a top kicking option, especially if the Falcons continue to play like they did Sunday.

Bryant knocked through a 21-yard field goal and a 33-yard extra point in the first preseason game.
Bryant would need to have a terrible preseason to lose the job to Sergio Castillo, but the Falcons want to put a little pressure on their veteran kicker. Castillo made both of his kicks on the night, although his longest field goal was only a yard longer than Bryant's extra point attempt.

Matt Bryant (back) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
It confirms that Bryant will be ready to kick in Week 1 against the Saints. He missed the Falcons' final two preseason games with a back injury, but it was never a major concern.

Matt Bryant (back) will be ready to kick in Sunday's game against the Saints.
Bryant took it easy during the preseason, attempting just two field goals (he made both) and no extra points. He sat out of Monday's practice as well, but the Falcons aren't concerned. Bryant will be a fine fantasy kicking option as a shootout is likely to ensue Sunday. Oddsmakers have set the over/under for Falcons vs. Saints at 54 points, by far the highest total of the week.

Matt Bryant's 88.6 conversion rate on field goals since 2009 ranks second in the NFL.
Fantasy owners will struggle to find a better kicking option than Bryant. He operates in a dome, plays for one of the league's premier offenses and is extremely consistent with his accuracy. Bryant has scored at least 126 points in three straight seasons and his 143 points last year ranked third in the league. Only Stephen Gostkowski and Lawrence Tynes scored more.

Falcons agreed to terms with K Matt Bryant.
Bryant is coming off a career year, drilling 28-of-31 (90.3 percent) field goals. He finished as a top-five fantasy kicker and should be among the first handful drafted again this year.
