New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) needs surgery for a left-knee injury and is likely out for the rest of the season. The Giants officially placed him on Injured Reserve on Saturday. Veteran Randy Bullock was signed and eventually elevated to the active roster, but he didn't have a single kicking opportunity in the 30-6 Week 9 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The G-Men also added Cade York last week, but he was inactive on Sunday. In eight games for the Giants this year before his knee injury, the 36-year-old Gano made 11 of his 17 field-goal attempts and made all eight of his extra-point tries. Bullock and York could continue to compete for the starting kicking job on game days on Sundays, but fantasy managers should avoid the situation entirely.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) will have surgery on his left knee and will be placed on Injured Reserve. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Giants are signing former Tennessee Titans kicker Randy Bullock to their practice squad, pending a physical, according to sources. Bullock was with the Giants in 2016. New York also worked out veteran kickers Robbie Gould, Mason Crosby and Matthew Wright on Thursday before deciding on Bullock. It's unclear if Gano will be ready to return to action after missing the required four games on IR. Given the low-scoring nature of New York's offense in 2023, Bullock isn't an attractive fantasy streamer in what will be his first game this Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice for the second straight day due to a left-knee injury. Gano has played the last two games with the injury, so it's safe to assume he will be active in Week 9 against the Las Vegas Raiders, albeit likely at less than 100 percent. The Giants held tryouts for kickers Robbie Gould, Mason Crosby, Randy Bullock and Matthew Wright, for what it's worth. If the Giants sign one of those kickers, it will be a sign that they don't feel comfortable sending Gano out there this Sunday. New York will be getting quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) back this weekend, but fantasy managers should still be looking to avoid Gano or whoever kicks for them in Week 9 in an offense that has been one of the lowest-scoring units in the league this year.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday while dealing with a left-knee injury. Gano missed two of his three field-goal tries in a three-point overtime loss to the New York Jets in Week 8. It's a good sign that the 36-year-old veteran kicker is practicing again this week before a Week 9 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, but fantasy managers shouldn't put their faith in Gano at less than 100 percent in an offense that is among one of the worst in football. Through eight weeks of the season, Gano ranks as the No. 30 kicker in terms of overall fantasy points. He's attempted 17 field goals, which is tied for 10th most in the NFL, but the problem is he's made just 11 of them (64.7 percent).

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) practiced in full on Thursday and Friday and has no injury designation for this weekend. As the offense struggles, Gano's attempts have fluctuated. In Week 7, he saw just one field goal try, which he missed. In fact, the veteran has missed four field goals through seven games. He's the K28 at this point in the season. The Jets' defense allows under 20 points per game, so opportunities may be scarce for Gano. There are at least 20 better kicker candidates for fantasy football lineups on Sunday.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) was removed from the final Week 7 injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday against the Washington Commanders. Gano was limited in practice this week with a left-knee injury. The 36-year-old will kick this weekend, but fantasy managers should be able to find more reliable options at the position. The Giants could be without starting quarterback Daniel Jones (neck) for the second straight week. The matchup is much more attractive against Washington, but Gano is outside the top 25 at his position in overall fantasy points through six weeks. The Giants' stagnant offense just isn't moving the ball consistently enough this year to make Gano fantasy relevant.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) was limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day due to a left-knee injury. Gano might be questionable on the final injury report for Week 7 that is released on Friday, but the veteran kicker appears to be on the right side of questionable for now since he's at least done something both days so far. The 36-year-old's injury is also to his non-kicking leg, which is more good news. The Giants have a pretty solid matchup this Sunday against the Washington Commanders, but New York's offense hasn't even been close to good enough to make Gano very attractive in starting fantasy lineups through six weeks. He comes into this week's game tied for 25th overall in the NFL at his position in fantasy points.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (knee) finds himself on the Week 7 injury report after putting in a limited practice session on Wednesday with a left-knee injury. Gano's status might be up in the air for Week 7 against the Washington Commanders after he made all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday night's loss to the Buffalo Bills. It was the second straight game that the 36-year-old has made three kicks, but he's only attempted 13 field goals on the year and five extra points. Gano is tied for 25th in overall fantasy points at his position through the first six weeks in a Giants offense that has had trouble moving the ball consistently. He remains off the fantasy radar for now.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano had his first decent game for fantasy football managers in Week 3 but ultimately hasn't cracked the top 30 in scoring at the position. The Giants' offense has struggled mightily through the first three games of the season which has limited Gano's opportunities. Big Blue will face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4, who are vulnerable against the pass. If New York can move the ball with an efficiency that we haven't yet seen this season, Gano could turn in a relevant fantasy performance. He's ranked in the middle of the pack among starting kickers this week.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano has only knocked through one field goal so far in 2023 and chances may be hard to come by in Week 3 against San Francisco. The 49ers' defense is one of the best units in football, meaning the Giants will likely have fewer scoring opportunities on Thursday Night Football. Plus, the offense will be without star running back Saquon Barkley (ankle). The veteran kicker should be on the waiver wire this week.
Sep 20, 2023 9:54 PM EST
New York Giants kicker Graham Gano knocked through a 34-yard field goal with 19 seconds remaining to clinch a 31-28 victory for the Giants. The veteran also went a perfect 4/4 on extra points against Arizona. The Giants' offense started sluggish on Sunday afternoon, falling behind 20-0 at halftime. Thankfully for fantasy managers, Big Blue woke up after halftime, giving Gano some opportunities. Gano and the rest of the Giants face a tough San Francisco defense on Thursday Night Football in Week 3.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (ankle) was listed as a full participant in practice Friday following two days of limited work. He is cleared to play on Sunday as he seeks his first points of the new season. The veteran had one field goal blocked and missed another in the Giants' season opener against the Dallas Cowboys. The Giants also failed to score a touchdown in a dreadful offensive performance, so Gano was unable to attempt an extra point. Field goal opportunities can be tough to predict but the Giants should see ample time in Arizona territory on Sunday. The Cardinals' offense turned the ball over twice in Week 1. If they follow suit, the Giants will be gifted shorter fields, which creates better odds for Gano to attempt kicks.
Sep 15, 2023 5:34 PM EST
New York Giants kicker Graham Gano (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday. Coach Brian Daboll initially called the issue a calf injury but the official practice report listed it as an ankle concern. Daboll did add that the veteran should be fine for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Gano had one field goal blocked and missed a second in the team's 40-0 blowout to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.
Sep 14, 2023 9:34 AM EST
New York Giants kicker Graham Gano had one kick blocked and missed on a second attempt in the team's 40-0 Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The 36-year-old may not be to blame for either, as the snap on his miss wasn't perfect. He also did not get a chance to attempt an extra point as the Giants failed to score a touchdown. Gano has been one of the more consistent kickers in the league. In 2022, he only missed three field goals. Expect a bounce-back performance from the veteran in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.
