Aldrick Rosas: Set for release

The Giants are expected to part ways with Rosas in the coming days, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: This news comes in the wake of the kicker facing three charges for an alleged hit-and-run incident on June 15 in Chico, Calif. Rosas' pending release will leave the team without a kicker on the roster for the start of training camp. The NFL won't levy any sort of punishment until the legal process plays itself out, with Rosas set for a court appearance on Sept. 4.

Aldrick Rosas: Arrested Monday

Analysis: The Giants released a statement in the aftermath: "We are aware of the situation and have been in contact with Aldrick. We have no further comment at this time."

Aldrick Rosas: Pens RFA tender

Rosas signed his contract tender with the Giants on Thursday.

Analysis: The Giants placed a second-round tender on Rosas, and he'll stick in New York for the 2020 campaign while playing under a $3.3 million salary. As such, the 25-year-old stands to enter the season as the Giants' lead placekicker. He's coming off an unimpressive 2019 showing, having converted just 12 of 17 field-goal tries across 16 games, but he did previously log an excellent 2018 season (completing 32 of 33 field-goal attempts).

Aldrick Rosas: Receives RFA tender

The Giants are using a second-round tender on Rosas, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: The restricted free agent tender will cost $3.3 million, which suggests Rosas has job security for 2020. The 25-year-old kicker has converted 82.7 percent of field-goal attempts and 91.5 percent of PATs in three NFL seasons, sandwiching two subpar campaigns around an excellent showing in 2018. The Giants may be undecided on a long-term commitment.

Aldrick Rosas: Nails sole field goal in finale

Rosas converted his only field-goal try and both extra-point attempts during Week 17's 34-17 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Rosas converted 12 of 17 field-goal attempts and 35 of 39 extra-point tries across 16 games in 2019. Coming off a rough campaign, it's possible that the Giants will bring in offseason competition for the third-year pro.

Aldrick Rosas: Misses lone field goal

Rosas missed his lone field-goal attempt and converted all five extra-point attempts during Sunday's 41-35, overtime win over the Redskins.

Analysis: The 24-year-old pushed his only field-goal opportunity wide left from 53 yards during the fourth quarter, making it two straight games without a made field goal. Rosas has endured a rough 2019, converting only 11 of 16 field goals and 33 of 37 extra points.

December 23, 2019 8:44 AM EST

Aldrick Rosas: Doesn't try field goal

Rosas made four of five extra points in Sunday's 36-20 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: This was the fourth time Rosas wasn't called upon to kick a field goal this year, and he's only attempted one on seven other occasions. With limited chances and uncharacteristic inefficiency -- he's hit 11 of 15 field goals (73 percent) and 28 of 32 extra points (88 percent) -- his ceiling is low for fantasy purposes, even against the Redskins in Week 16.

December 16, 2019 9:10 AM EST

Aldrick Rosas: Makes all three kicks

Rosas made his only field-goal attempt as well as both his extra-point tries in Monday night's 23-17 overtime loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Rosas converted from 34 yards on his lone field goal, but was otherwise limited to extra-point duty. The kicker sports just one double-digit performance this season ahead of Week 15's matchup against the Dolphins.

Aldrick Rosas: Back to full health

Rosas (shoulder) is not listed on Thursday's injury report.

Analysis: Rosas emerged from Week 13's loss to the Packers having sustained a shoulder injury while making a tackle, but he already appears fully recovered. The third-year pro will handle New York's kicking duties during Monday's divisional tilt against Philadelphia.

Aldrick Rosas: Nursing shoulder injury

Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Rosas hurt his shoulder during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Packers, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Rosas suffered the injury while making a tackle. The third-year pro was able to finish the Week 13 loss, during which he made both field-goal tries and his only extra-point attempt, so it's possible that he'll manage to play through the issue against the Eagles in Week 14.

Aldrick Rosas: Perfect in loss to Green Bay

Rosas connected on two field goals and an extra point in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: After missing two field goals in a five-point loss to the Bears in Week 12, Rosas bounced back well by drilling kicks from 27 and 45 yards. The 24-year-old has now converted 10 of 14 field goals and 22 of 25 extra points this season, and he could have an intriguing matchup against the slumping Eagles in Week 15.

Aldrick Rosas: Misses twice in five-point loss

Rosas missed two field-goal attempts but made both extra-point tries in Sunday's 19-14 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Rosas pushed a 42-yarder wide right in the second quarter, and he went the other way on the next drive by pulling a 43-yard try wide left. Missing two field goals in a five-point loss is disappointing, although there was a faulty snap on one of the kicks. Rosas will look to bounce back in Week 13 against the Packers.

Aldrick Rosas: Scores two points

Rosas converted both his extra-point attempts during Thursday's 35-14 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Rosas wasn't allowed the opportunity to attempt a field goal Week 6. In the previous five weeks of the season, he'd logged exactly one field-goal try per contest. Until the Giants' offense turns things around and begins presenting Rosas with more consistent opportunities, he'll remain off the fantasy radar.

Aldrick Rosas: Not seeing many opportunities

Rosas made his only field goal and his lone extra-point attempt during Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Viking.

Analysis: Rosas made the most of his limited opportunities Week 5, but game flow didn't work in his favor as the Giants spent most of the day attempting to catch up from a deficit. The third-year pro has been reliable through five contests, having made four of five field-goal tries and all 11 of his extra-point attempts, but New York's middling offense keeps him off the fantasy radar in most formats. He's yet to attempt more than a single field goal in a game this season.

October 7, 2019 10:10 AM EST

Aldrick Rosas: Scores six points

Rosas made his only field goal and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-3 win over the Redskins.

Analysis: Rosas did all that was required of him Sunday, converting from 30 yards on his lone field-goal effort and adding the exclamation points to all three Giants touchdowns. Through four games, Rosas now sports 19 points.

October 1, 2019 6:18 PM EST

Aldrick Rosas: Game-winning extra point

Rosas made a 36-yard field goal and all three extra points in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Buccaneers.

Analysis: After rookie Daniel Jones scampered for a touchdown to tie the game with 1:16 remaining in regulation, all the Giants needed was an extra point to take the lead. Rosas came through to give the team its first win of the season. The Giants host the Redskins in Week 4.

September 23, 2019 12:28 PM EST

Aldrick Rosas: Misses 48-yarder

Rosas made both extra-point attempts but missed a 48-yard field goal in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Rosas is still perfect on extra points, making all four this year. However, he now has converted on one of two field goal attempts with his make coming at 28 yards and his miss coming from 48.

September 16, 2019 10:18 AM EST

Aldrick Rosas: Flawless in defeat

Rosas made his lone field-goal attempt as well as both his extra-point tries en route to five points in Sunday's 35-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Rosas converted from 28 yards on his only field goal, but was otherwise limited to a couple extra-point efforts. He'll hope for more scoring opportunities in Week 2's in-state matchup against the Bills.
