Drops double digits again

Crosby made two field goals and five extra points in Sunday's 41-17 victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Crosby reached double digits in the points column for both the second time all season and the second time is as many weeks, and thanks to a 56-yard field goal to close out the first half, he had another particularly productive day for those earning points based on field goal distance. Crosby will close out the regular season against the Lions, a team that limited him to just three points in Week 9 and allowed opposing kickers to make just 10 field goals over its last seven games.

Shines in Week 16

Crosby made four field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 26-20 victory over the Dolphins.

Analysis: Crosby had not made more than two field goals in a game all season, but in the veteran's team-record 256th consecutive appearance, he put three points on the board four times and chipped in a couple extra points. Crosby has not done a lot for fantasy players this season, but he has done enough recently -- if the weather cooperates -- to garner consideration in Week 17 against a Vikings team that has allowed opposing kickers to reach double digits in seven straight games.

Makes all kicks in Week 15

Crosby made a 34-yard field goal and all three extra points he attempted in Monday's 24-12 victory over the Rams.

Analysis: Crosby made every kick he got up for the second time in as many games, but he also finished with a single digit in the points column for the 14th time in 14 appearances this season. His next matchup will come against a Dolphins defense that allowed opposing kickers to reach double digits twice over the last three weeks but has been above average against that position over the course of the season.

Perfect in victory

Crosby made two field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 28-19 victory over the Bears.

Analysis: Crosby was perfect for the first time since Week 9, and he finished one point shy of tying the season-best nine points he put up in Weeks 2, 4 and 12. He will not offer any assistance for fantasy players in Week 14 with Green Bay on bye, but he will have an appealing matchup the following week, as he and the Packers will take on a Rams team that has allowed kickers to rack up all kinds of points since the start of November.

Ties season high with nine points

Crosby made two field goals and 3-of-4 extra-point attempts in Sunday's 40-33 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Neither of Crosby's field goals came from further than 33 yards away, but he did make two of them for the first time since Week 5 and tied his season high with nine points. His next matchup will come against the Bears, who allowed opponents to make an average of 4.6 extra-point attempts but just four total field goals over its last five games.

Quiet in Week 11

Crosby made a 39-yard field goal and had his only extra-point attempt blocked in Thursday's 27-17 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Tennessee's defense has regularly stifled opposing kickers this season, and they did so again Thursday night. Green Bay's next opponent -- the Eagles -- are faring even better in that department than the Titans, so it seems unlikely Crosby will bounce back in Week 12.

Walks off Cowboys in Week 10 win

Crosby made one of two field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-28 overtime victory over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Crosby did not all that close to making a 54-yard field goal attempt in the first quarter of Sunday's frigid game at Lambeau Field, but he buried a 28-yard kick with three minutes remaining in the extra period and gave his team its first win in over a month. Crosby was slowed by a sore back last week and did not handle kickoffs in Sunday's contest, but most importantly for fantasy players, he was on the field for each scoring opportunity. He will presumably do the same Thursday against the Titans, but he may not have many chances to put points on the board, as Tennessee allowed opposing kickers to make just three extra points and five field goals over its last four contests.

Cleared for Week 10

Crosby (back) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: Crosby's practice reps were capped all week while he managed the back issue, but the fact that the Packers aren't even listing the kicker as questionable for Sunday's contest suggests that his health was never a major concern. The 38-year-old has missed just two kicks all season, but a struggling Packers offense has presented him with only 11 field-goal tries and 17 extra-point attempts through the team's first nine games.

Limited again at practice

Crosby (back) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday.

Analysis: While Crosby is operating with a cap on his reps this week, his ability to practice in general is a decent sign that he's not in danger of being unavailable Sunday against the Cowboys. Assuming he's able to play, he hasn't been a great fantasy asset this season as the kicker attached to an uninspiring Packers offense, which so far has yielded just 4.9 points per game for the 16th-year pro.

Nov 10, 2022 2:29 PM EST

Tending to back injury

Crosby (back) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: With the Packers offense sputtering most weeks this season, Crosby hasn't had his usual plethora of chances to contribute on game day. Overall, he's connected on nine of 11 field-goal attempts and all 17 point-after tries in nine appearances, resulting in just 4.9 points per game. Assuming his status clears up by the end of the week, Crosby may not receive many opportunities Sunday versus the Cowboys' third-ranked scoring defense (16.6 points per game).

Just one Week 9 scoring chance

Crosby made a 25-yard field goal in Sunday's 15-9 loss to the Lions.

Analysis: The Packers racked up 389 total yards and found themselves in the red zone four times Sunday, but they turned it over three times and the game script dictated they eschew the kicker for the most part, so the field goal Crosby made late in the fourth quarter wound up being his only scoring chance of the day. Crosby may not have many opportunities in Week 10, either, as he and the Packers will face a Cowboys defense that allowed opposing kickers to rack up just six extra points and seven field goals over its last five contests.

Output remains meager

Crosby made one of two field-goal tries and both extra points he attempted in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Crosby's line would have looked a lot better had he made a 55-yard field goal try late in Sunday's contest, but alas, he was limited to no more than one made field goal for the third straight game and fifth time in eight weeks. Crosby has been efficient this season, making eight of the 10 field goals he has gotten up as well as all 17 of his extra-point attempts, but he is simply not seeing enough opportunities to provide much help for fantasy players.

Oct 31, 2022 10:43 AM EST

Limited to extra points

Crosby made all three extra points he attempted in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Commanders.

Analysis: The Packers amassed only 232 yards of offense in Sunday's contest, which limited Crosby's scoring opportunities and led to his lowest point total since Week 3. It could be tough sledding for Crosby again in Week 8, as the Packers will face a Bills team that has allowed opposing kickers to attempt just nine field goals and nine extra points through six games.

Oct 24, 2022 9:02 AM EST

Finishes with four points

Crosby made a 29-yard field goal, had a 47-yard field goal attempt blocked and connected on an extra point in Sunday's 27-10 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: After making multiple field goals and multiple extra points in back-to-back outings, Crosby was limited to just one apiece in Week 6. He and the Packers will next take on a Commanders team that, after ceding 10 made field goals over the first four weeks, did not allow opposing kickers to even attempt a field goal in each of its last two contests.

Oct 17, 2022 7:55 AM EST

Capitalizes on Week 5 matchup

Crosby made two field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: The Giants are ceding some of the most points to kickers league-wide, and Crosby capitalized, putting eight points on the board and drilling field goals from 46 and 48 yards. Heading into a Week 6 matchup with the Jets, the veteran is a perfect 6-for-6 on field goal attempts and 11-for-11 on point after touchdown tries.

Oct 10, 2022 6:47 AM EST

Bounces back in Week 4

Crosby made two field goals and three extra points in Sunday's 27-24 overtime victory over the Patriots.

Analysis: Crosby bounced back from a quiet Week 3 by tying the season-high nine points he put on the scoreboard in Week 2. The inconsistency has been tough for fantasy players to deal with, but Crosby will be in position to produce again his next time out, as the Packers will take on a Giants squad that allowed opposing kickers to score at least eight points in each of its first four games.

Oct 3, 2022 7:34 AM EST

Finishes with just two points

Crosby did not attempt a field goal and made both extra points he got up in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

Analysis: It appeared Crosby would have several opportunities to put points on the board after the Packers marched down the field on their first three drives, but they turned the ball over near the goal line on the third and did not give Crosby another scoring chance after that. Crosby scored nine points in the Packers' Week 2 victory over the Bears, but he totaled just three points in the two other games his team has played to date.

Sep 26, 2022 7:47 AM EST

Will be available Sunday

Crosby (illness) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Analysis: Crosby showed up on the injury report Thursday as a non-participant due to an illness and remained away from the field Friday. Still, there's no worry about his availability for Week 3 action. The Packers' receiving corps may be depleted with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) already ruled out and Randall Cobb (illness) and Christian Watson (hamstring) questionable, so Crosby's prospects Sunday could be dimmed if one or both of the latter duo are unavailable to the offense.

Sep 23, 2022 1:33 PM EST

Misses practice but likely to play

Crosby (illness) was sidelined for a second consecutive practice Friday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Crosby missed Green Bay's last two practices, but Schneidman adds that special teams coach Rich Bisaccia expects Crosby to play Sunday against the Buccaneers. If Crosby were to miss the game, Green Bay would likely promote kicker Ramiz Ahmed from the practice squad.

Sep 23, 2022 10:21 AM EST

Fails to practice Thursday

Crosby (illness) was listed as a non-participant on the Packers' practice report Thursday.

Analysis: Although Crosby failed to participate in Thursday's practice session, special teams coach Rich Bisaccia expects the 38-year-old to be ready to go for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, per Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.
