There are few safer kickers to draft than Bryant: He plays for a high-scoring team, is scheduled for 10 indoor games in 2012 (plus road games at San Diego and Tampa Bay), is tops in field goal accuracy (84.0%) among active kickers with at least 200 made, has led the league in field goal accuracy since '10 (91.7%) and can make the 50-yarders that earn you extra points.

10 Alex HENERY EAGLES TIER: 2

AGE: 25 BYE WEEK: 7 AUCTION: $1

[SLEEPER PICK] This we know: Henery, a fourth-rounder out of Nebraska last year, can put the ball through the goalposts. He set an NCAA record for career field goal accuracy (89.5%), then was the most accurate rookie ever (88.9%). Philadelphia, oddly, produced fewer field goal chances for Henery (27) than it did for David Akers in 2010 (38). A return to normal by the offense will make Henery a sleeper.
