Mason Crosby: Another steady season

Crosby made all 16 field goals he attempted and converted a league-leading 59 of his 63 extra-point chances over 16 games in the 2020 season.

Analysis: Crosby averaged a career-low 1.0 field-goal attempts per game, but he made every kick he put up, including five in the 40-49 range and four from 50 yards and beyond. While he racked up more extra points than anyone else, the Packers' success in the red zone and Crosby's lack of field-goal attempts put a dent in his fantasy value. He signed a three-year deal with the Packers last offseason, so it's almost certain he will remain the team's kicker in 2021.

Mason Crosby: All clear to face Bucs

Crosby (shoulder) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Crosby was limited in practice all week due to a shoulder issue, but his status never appeared to be in any true danger. The placekicker veteran hasn't missed a field-goal attempt all year.

Mason Crosby: Another limited session

Crosby (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Crosby has now logged back-to-back limited practice sessions due to a shoulder issue. As long as he's able to handle some amount of reps again Friday, there shouldn't be any concern about his status for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against Tampa Bay.

Mason Crosby: Managing shoulder issue

Crosby (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Crosby is back on Green Bay's injury report for the first time since Week 9 of the regular season, but there's not yet any reason to suspect that his availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers is in any real danger. He made all four of his kicks (two field goals and two extra points) during last weekend's win over the Rams.

Mason Crosby: Makes all four kicks

Crosby made both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Saturday's 32-18 divisional-round win over the Rams.

Analysis: Crosby converted from 24 and 39 yards on his field goals, but was robbed of a couple PAT opportunities, as one bad snap resulted in a broken play without a kick, which then led Green Bay to try a two-point conversion following its next touchdown. Regardless, Crosby did his job in making all four of his attempts, sending him into Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers with positive momentum.

Mason Crosby: Finishes as league leader in XPM

Crosby went 5-of-5 on extra points and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Analysis: The five extra points gave Crosby a total of 59 on the season -- the most of any kicker in the league. While Crosby racked up extra points left and right, he attempted just 16 field goals all season, and only nine over the Packers' last 13 games. He did split the uprights on all 16 attempts, but his lack of opportunities prevented him from being a steady contributor in fantasy leagues.

January 4, 2021 9:49 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Modest output again

Crosby made 4-of-5 extra points and did not officially attempt a field goal in Sunday's victory over the Titans.

Analysis: With the Packers having no trouble reaching the end zone and the snow swirling in Lambeau Field, Crosby finished without a field-goal attempt for the fourth time this season. He did have a field goal blocked in the first half, but the play was erased by a penalty and Green Bay ultimately ended up going on fourth down. Crosby is tied for the league lead in extra points and is perfect on field goals this season, but he has only gotten 16 official chances to put three points on the board.

Mason Crosby: Increases extra-point total to 50

Crosby made a 51-yard field goal and three extra points in Saturday's victory over the Panthers.

Analysis: Crosby buried a 50-yarder for the second week in a row and increased his league-leading extra-point total to an even 50, but he also finished with a single digit in the points column for the 10th time in 11 games. Crosby and the Packers will next face a Titans team that allowed the opposing kicker to score at least 10 points three times in five games heading into their Week 15 matchup with the Lions, so he will have some appeal in Week 16. However, given that Crosby is averaging barely more than one field-goal attempt per game, those that are still able to make moves will want to consider kickers that are getting more chances to tack three points on the board with one kick.

December 20, 2020 8:24 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Buries longest attempt of season

Crosby made a 57-yard field goal and all four extra points he attempted in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Analysis: Crosby was perfect on extra points after missing one each of the previous two weeks, and he also drained his longest attempt of the season to give the Packers an important 10-point lead late in Sunday's contest. Crosby has not missed a field-goal attempt all season, but he is still looking for just his second double-digit total since Week 3. He could have a tough time achieving that in Week 15 facing a Panthers team that allowed just two field goals and four extra points over the past three weeks.

December 14, 2020 7:44 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Another single-digit total

Crosby made a 40-yard field goal and 3-of-4 extra-point attempts in Sunday's victory over the Eagles.

Analysis: While Crosby remained perfect on field-goal attempts, he did miss an extra point for the second week in a row. Of greater concern for fantasy players is his output, as he finished with a single digit in the points column for the eighth time in nine games. As the kicker for the highest-scoring team in the league, Crosby's floor is as high as anyone's. At the same time, though, with just seven field-goal attempts over his last nine games, there hasn't been much room for upside.

Mason Crosby: No FG attempts in SNF win

Crosby made 5-of-6 extra points and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Analysis: The missed extra point was Crosby's second of the season, but the five makes and six attempts pushed him into the league lead in both departments. While Crosby is getting up more extra points than anyone, he is barely attempting any field goals at all, getting just six chances to put three points on the board over the last eight weeks. He did make all six of those kicks, but with an average of fewer than one attempt per week over that span, he's not seeing enough opportunities to make an impact in just about any fantasy league.

November 30, 2020 7:45 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Output remains modest

Crosby made a 26-yard field goal and all four extra points he put up in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Crosby is a perfect 13-for-13 on field-goal attempts this season, but just six of those kicks came over the Packers' last seven games. Unsurprisingly, he hit double figures in the points column just once over that span. His chances of reaching that threshold will be as good as ever in Week 12, though, as the Packers will square off against a Bears defense that has allowed opposing kickers to both attempt and make more field goals than any other team in the league.

November 23, 2020 9:00 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Opportunities limited again

Crosby made a 39-yard field goal and all three extra points he attempted in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Crosby was perfect for the eighth time in nine games this season, but he was limited to no more than one field-goal attempt nor make for the fifth time in his last six games. Green Bay's offense has been humming this season, sitting sixth in yards per game and third in scoring, but they have also been efficient in the red zone, which has limited Crosby's chances to put up points. His opportunities could be limited again in Week 11, as the Packers will face a Colts defense that ranks first in the league and has allowed opponents to attempt just 13 field goals -- and make only 11 of them -- thus far.

November 16, 2020 8:52 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Puts up double digits

Crosby made two field goals -- including one from 53 yards -- and four extra points in Thursday's victory over the 49ers.

Analysis: Crosby did not score more than six points in any of the Packers' previous four games, but he made every kick he attempted Thursday and had his most productive game in weeks. With his injury behind him and coming off a double-digit scoring effort, Crosby will be on the fantasy radar for Week 10, particularly with the Packers facing a Jaguars defense that is among the worst in the league in both points and yards allowed.

November 6, 2020 8:35 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Set for Week 9

Crosby (left calf/back) doesn't have a designation for Thursday's contest at San Francisco.

Analysis: Limited in practice this week by left calf and back injuries, Crosby nonetheless will be available for place-kicking duties, per usual. The Packers haven't line up for a field-goal attempt since Week 6, so it'll be interesting to see if he'll be utilized as he was prior to the recent health concerns. On the season, Crosby has hit all nine of his field goals and is 24-for-25 on PATs through seven games.

November 4, 2020 2:08 PM EST

Mason Crosby: Limited in practice again

Crosby (left calf/back) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's walk-through practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Crosby played through both injuries in this past Sunday's loss to the Vikings, so a second straight day with a limited tag bodes well for his availability Thursday against the 49ers. The 36-year-old kicker didn't attempt a field goal in either of Green Bay's last two games, but he added seven extra points between those matchups.

November 3, 2020 2:01 PM EST

Mason Crosby: Limited Monday

Crosby (back/calf) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's estimated injury report.

Analysis: Crosby played Sunday after dealing with the back and calf issues all week, but he was only called upon for a pair of PATs during the windy contest. The 36-year-old's availability for Thursday's game against San Francisco doesn't appear to be in doubt, but he's kicked only two field goals over the past four games.

November 2, 2020 2:17 PM EST

Mason Crosby: Tallies just two points

Crosby made two extra points in Sunday's 28-22 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Crosby took the field Sunday despite dealing with calf and back injuries last week, but on a windy day and in a game in which the Packers had just eight total drives, he only got two chances to score and finished with a season-low two points. Had the weather been calmer he could have gotten a shot to kick a long field goal or two and add another extra point, but according to head coach Matt LaFleur, via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Packers elected to keep the offense on the field in those situations because of the wind. Crosby's health doesn't appear it should be of much concern to fantasy players, but his production should be, as he put up an average of just 4.3 points on the scoreboard over his last four games.

November 2, 2020 9:39 AM EST

Mason Crosby: Suiting up Sunday

Crosby (calf/back) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Analysis: A cloud hung over Crosby this week due to left calf and back injuries, which didn't allow him to practice Wednesday or Thursday. He wrapped up the week with some kicks in Green Bay's indoor facility, and while he was tabbed as questionable by the Packers, the team opted not to bring in a placekicker by Saturday afternoon's deadline, indicating he was ready for his usual duties. Indeed, Crosby is available Sunday, with punter JK Scott on hand as an emergency option. However, with gusty conditions at Lambeau Field, it bears wondering whether Crosby will get many chances to split the uprights.

November 1, 2020 8:33 AM EST

Mason Crosby: In line to kick Sunday

Crosby (calf/back) is in line to kick Sunday after the Packers chose not to call up a kicker from the practice squad, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Crosby didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, but the fact the Packers failed to bring up a kicker from the practice squad sure seems like a good omen entering Sunday. Should Crosby encounter any sort of lingering affects from his calf/back injury, J.K. Scott would act as the team's emergency kicker.
