K – Mason Crosby
Last Week: 1/2 FG (44-yard make, 52 yard miss), 1/1 PATs; 5.00 fantasy points
Well, Crosby had his shot.
The man had the chance to save the game for the Packers — and help his fantasy owners as well — with a 52-yard attempt right at the end of a 18-16 contest.
Then…he blew it.
I don’t have a clue what exactly happened, but he knuckleballed the hell out of that kick so bad it appeared it was blocked.
Besides the fact that he lost the game there, it also turned what would have been an excellent fantasy performance into one that was just okay at best.
Honestly, looking back on things Crosby just hasn’t been a good fantasy option this season. Only three games have seen him produce more than 8 fantasy points (none since the San Diego game). On the year, he has had only 14 total field goal attempts (12 made).
Add on the way the offense in general has struggled to move the ball and score in general, and he just isn’t the best bet out there right now.
Week 11 Prediction: 1/1 FG (1 40-49 yards), 2 PATs; 6.00 fantasy Points
