Due to the Patriots losing playmakers on offense, Matt Bryant is one of the new favorites to unseat Stephen Gostkowski as fantasy's go-to No. 1 kicker. This is for good reason considering the Falcons were scoring machines in 2012 during a peach of a season by Matt Ryan. Bryant is an accurate veteran and kicks in a dome. Even if he mostly converts more extra points than field goals, Bryant has a great shot to finish among fantasy's best kickers.

The big question for Atlanta is where will the pass rush come from? They brought in 31-year-old Osi Umenyiora from the New York Giants, but his sack totals have decreased in each of the last two seasons. The Falcons will need to break in first-round pick Desmond Trufant at corner and are still ironing out who will be the extra corners in nickel and dime scenarios. With new players transitioning into an already mediocre defense, the Falcons have a fantasy defense to avoid.
