Mason Crosby: Drops double digits in Week 12

Crosby made 3-of-4 field goals and all three extra points he attempted in Sunday's 36-28 victory over the Rams.

Analysis: Crosby missed a field goal attempt for the fourth game in a row and the sixth time in eight games, but he was able to reach double digits in the points column for the first time since Week 5. Despite the glut of misses, the Packers seem committed to Crosby. Fantasy players don't necessarily need to be, though, as the Packers will be on bye in Week 13 before facing a Bears team he scored just six points against in Week 6 and then two teams -- the Ravens and Browns -- who rank top-10 in fantasy points ceded to opposing kickers.
