2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Set to replace Matt Bryant

February 6, 2019
Tavecchio is expected to replace Matt Bryant as the Falcons' kicker for 2019, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The team informed Bryant of his release Wednesday, presumably intending to go cheap at the position. Tavecchio's strong performance in 2018 may have contributed to the plan, as he didn't miss any kicks (five field goals and eight extra points) in the three games he played when Bryant was injured. It's still possible the Falcons could bring in competition, considering Tavecchio missed five field goals with Oakland in 2017. He doesn't need to be great to provide fantasy utility, with the Falcons playing in a dome and coming off five consecutive seasons finishing eighth or better in total yards.
