2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Falcons let Matt Bryant walk in the offseason, ending a 10-year marriage that provided a slew of useful fantasy seasons. Tavecchio inherits the same favorable context on a dome team in the high-scoring NFC South, but he could face competition in training camp and won't have a long leash if he struggles during the season. The situation offers potential for prolific output if he locks down the job. Read Past Outlooks

Tavecchio had a tryout with the Patriots on Tuesday, Albert Breer of reports.
Tavecchio went 5-for-5 on field goals and 8-for-8 on extra points for the Falcons last season, but he struggled in the preseason and was let go at September's roster deadline in favor of Matt Bryant. The Patriots are testing their options with recent addition Mike Nugent missing two kicks in his first two games with the team.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
A 27-year-old rookie last season, Tavecchio found his way to a starting job when Sebastian Janikowski injured his back shortly before Week 1. The Italian-born kicker only made 76.2 percent of his field-goal attempts, though he did go three of four from 50-plus yards and converted all but one of his PATs. It won't come as any surprise if undrafted rookie Eddy Pineiro ends up winning the kicking battle in Oakland.
Tavecchio is the back-up kicker behind Sebastian Janikowski and barring any injuries, he'll have a hard time making the final 53-man roster.
The free agent signed with Green Bay to compete with Mason Crosby in training camp, but was cut in August.
