Mr. Reliable: Matt Bryant (3-3 PATs, 1-1 40-49: 6.0 points)

Matt Bryant continues to be perfect in the kicking game, but what made this a poor fantasy day for him is the fact that he didn’t get many opportunities.

Bryant not seeing much of the field should be considered a good thing for Falcons fans, as it shows that Atlanta was better able to execute in the red zone this week, as opposed to last week. Three red zone touchdowns in three trips this week should inspire some confidence in the attack.

Analysis: Hold on to Matt Bryant, despite the fact that he had a bad week. There will be weeks when he has a chance for his long field goals but Sunday wasn’t it. Due to Atlanta’s prolific offense, expect the other Matty Ice to get his chances this year.
