Fantasy Football Rankings 2012: Don't Forget Falcons Kicker Matt Bryant

Fantasy owners looking for potential additions from the Falcons are likely to be fixated on Julio Jones and Matt Ryan, but the Falcons' official site writes that kicker Matt Bryant shouldn't be ignored:

Even if the Falcons aren’t scoring touchdowns on every drive, the offense looks capable of moving the ball down the field, resulting in field goal opportunities for Bryant. Last season he connected on 27 of his 29 field goal attempts, including 14 straight. His 93.1 percentage on field goals was the best in the NFL in 2011

Bryant's fairly far of the radar, even for a kicker - he's 13th on, which means he'll likely go undrafted in a lot of leagues. However, consider that the Falcons are expected to have one of the strongest offenses in the league this season and keep in mind that field goal or PAT, Bryant will be out there in some capacity.
