Mason Crosby: Placed on COVID-19 list

Crosby has been placed on the Packers' reserve/COVID-19 list, Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin reports.

Analysis: Crosby's placement on the list means that he either tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with someone who did. The 35-year-old is in line to reprise his duties as the Packers' placekicker in 2020. It's a role he's filled since 2007.

Mason Crosby: Signs three-year deal with Packers

Crosby signed a three-year contract with the Packers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Packers locked up their long-time kicker before he entered free agency, bringing back Crosby on a three-year deal. Last year, his 13th season with the franchise, Crosby connected on 92 percent of his field goals, easily the best mark in his career, while also nailing 40 of 41 extra-point attempts.

Mason Crosby: Impressive 2019 campaign

Crosby, who made both extra-point attempts in the NFC championship, connected on 22 of 24 field goals (92 percent) over 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Analysis: Crosby followed up two questionable seasons where he hit 79 and 81 percent of field-goal attempts, respectively, with the best year of his career. The 35-year-old ranked fifth in the league in terms of field-goal percentage. Crosby is due for a new contract, and the Packers will likely want to keep him around due to the way he's playing. He's averaged $4.025 million over the last four years, and a similar deal would put him among the top-10 kicker contracts once again.

Mason Crosby: Makes all four extra-point attempts

Crosby made four extra points in Sunday's divisional round win over the Seahwaks.

Analysis: Crosby did not attempt field goals Sunday, but he was perfect on all four point-after-touchdown attempts -- hardly a surprise given that he made 40 of his 41 extra-point attempts during the regular season.

Mason Crosby: Hits game winner in Week 17

Crosby made 3-of-4 field goals -- including a game-winning 33-yarder at the final buzzer -- and two extra points in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Analysis: Crosby missed his first kick since Week 3, but he also walked-off the Lions for the second time in as many games this season. The 11 points he put up Sunday were tied for the most he totaled in a game this season.

Mason Crosby: Ties season high in field goals

Crosby made three field goals and missed his lone extra-point attempt in Monday's victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Crosby missed his first kick of any kind since Week 3, but he also tied his single-game high on the season for field goals, which came from distances of 19, 33, and 42 yards. Crosby's final matchup of the regular season will come against the Lions, who allowed opposing kickers to make 10-of-11 field-goal attempts and all 14 extra-point attempts they put in the air over the last five weeks.

December 24, 2019 9:54 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Ties season low with three points

Crosby made all three extra points he attempted in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Analysis: Once again Crosby made every kick he attempted, but he also tied his season low with just three points in Week 15. His next matchup -- last in most fantasy leagues -- will come against a Vikings team that has been below average against opposing kickers since Week 9 but allowed kickers to put just five points on the board over its last two games.

December 16, 2019 8:32 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Perfect again in Week 14

Crosby made two field goals and two extra points in Sunday's victory over Washington.

Analysis: Crosby did not attempt any kicks longer than the 33-yard extra-point distance, but he was perfect for the ninth week in a row, making all four kicks he attempted. Crosby's accuracy speaks for itself, but his eight points Sunday were his most since Week 6, and he will have a tough time breaking into double digits in Week 15 against a Bears defense that has been one of the stingiest against opposing kickers all season.

December 9, 2019 9:36 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Another perfect outing

Crosby made a 46-yard field goal and four extra points in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Analysis: The conditions at MetLife Stadium were not ideal for kicking, but Crosby handled the challenge with ease and made every kick he attempted. That has become the norm for Crosby, who has not missed a kick since Week 3 and is now 14-for-15 on field goals and a perfect 33-for-33 on extra points this season. He will attempt to keep his streak going in Week 14 against a Washington team that ranks Top-10 against opposing kickers over the last five weeks.

Mason Crosby: Goose egg in Week 12

Crosby did not score a point in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: Crosby did not even get a chance to put up points in Week 12, as the Packers went for two on their only touchdown of the game and did not send him out there for anything other than kickoffs. The goose egg certainly won't inspire confidence in Crosby in Week 13, but he will have an opportunity to bounce back against a Giants team that was one of the worst in the league against opposing kickers over the last 10 weeks. Whether he gets enough chances remains to be seen, though, as he attempted -- and made -- just three field goals over the Packers' last five games.

Mason Crosby: Hits game winner

Crosby hit a game-winning field goal at the final buzzer in Monday's 23-22 victory over the Lions. He also added two more field goals and two extra points in the game.

Analysis: The Packers needed Crosby to be perfect Monday night, and he was, hitting every kick he attempted, including a 23-yard chip shot with zeroes on the clock to give the Packers their first lead of the game -- and ultimately, the win. Crosby got off to a slow start, totaling just seven points over the Packers' first two games, but he has picked up the pace, scoring at least nine points in each game, and setting a new season high with 11 points in Week 6.

October 15, 2019 9:45 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Scores season-high 10 points

Crosby made two field goals and four extra points in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Crosby did not make a field goal longer than 38 yards Sunday, but he was perfect for the second straight week -- and fourth time in five games -- en route to scoring a season-high 10 points. He and the Packers will take the field Monday night in Week 6 and square off against a Lions team that allowed opponents to attempt 11 kicks and make eight of them prior to its Week 5 bye.

October 7, 2019 8:16 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Nine points in second straight

Crosby made two field goals and three extra points in Thursday's loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Crosby scored seven total points in Weeks 1-2, but he has now hit two field goals and three extra points in back-to-back games, giving him nine points a piece over the last two contests. Field goals could be harder to come by for Crosby and the Packers in their next game in Week 5, as they will square off against a Cowboys team that allowed opponents to attempt just four field goals and make only three over its first three games of the season.

September 27, 2019 8:08 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Hits two field goals in victory

Crosby made two of three field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point attempts in Sundays' victory over the Broncos.

Analysis: Crosby did miss a field goal -- from 45 yards out -- for the first time this season, but he also easily had his most productive game thus far, and rewarded those in leagues that tack on points for field goal distance by converting from both 41 and 42 yards. Crosby is off to a slow start this season, averaging over two points fewer per game than he put up in 2018.

September 23, 2019 7:53 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Three points in Week 2

Crosby made all three of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Crosby has made every kick he has attempted through two weeks, backing up the Packers' decision to stick with him over training camp counterpart Sam Ficken. Unfortunately for fantasy players, that has only resulted in seven total points, with Crosby attempting four extra points and just one field goal through two weeks. Crosby will have a shot at a better day in Week 3 with the Packers squaring off against a Broncos team that has ceded four field goals and four extra points -- and no misses -- through two games.

September 16, 2019 8:51 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Perfect in opener

Crosby made a 39-yard field goal and an extra point in Thursday's victory over the Bears.

Analysis: Crosby had only two chances to score Thursday, but he converted both kicks, and put four key points on the board in a game the Packers ended up winning by seven. Crosby and the Packers will next square off against the Vikings, a team Crosby averaged just five points against in two meetings a year ago.

Mason Crosby: Retains starting job

Crosby will be the Packers' starting kicker after the team cut Sam Ficken on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Analysis: Crosby had been in a battle with Ficken during the preseason for the starting kicking job, and emerged victorious. The team chose to stick to the status quo over an unproven option, as 2019 will be Crosby's 12th season with the team. The 34-year-old could be an underrated fantasy option this season, especially with a potent offense that has Aaron Rodgers at the helm.

August 31, 2019 9:26 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Makes both extra-point attempts

Crosby made both extra points he attempted in Thursday's preseason loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: For the second time in three preseason games the Packers did not attempt a field goal, so neither Crosby nor fellow kicker Sam Ficken got a chance to show what he could do in that regard. Ficken made the lone extra point he attempted Thursday, and both kickers have been perfect during the exhibition season. The Packers' kicking situation remains the same heading into the final preseason contest -- Crosby has done nothing to cede his job as the Packers' kicker, but Ficken remains in the conversation.

August 23, 2019 10:12 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Perfect in second preseason game

Crosby made a 43-yard field goal and an extra point in Thursday's preseason loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Crosby and Sam Ficken continue competing to open the season as the Packers' kicker, and for the second week in a row, neither player missed a kick. Neither player seemingly has a leg up on the competition, either, which is probably good news for Crosby, the incumbent. However, with Crosby not distancing himself from Ficken, that leaves the door open for the Packers to go with the less experienced -- but less expensive -- option.

August 16, 2019 9:26 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Kicks in preseason opener

Crosby made both extra points he attempted in Thursday's preseason opener.

Analysis: Crosby missed a good portion of training camp with a calf injury, but he was cleared to take the field last weekend, and was able to take the field Thursday night. Crosby is facing competition for his job from fellow kicker Sam Ficken, who also went 2-for-2 on extra points Thursday. Crosby's 12 years in Green Bay give him a leg up on Ficken to open the season as the Packers' kicker, but there is at least the possibility the Packers could have a different kicker for the first time since 2006.
