K – Mason Crosby
Week 10 Statistics: 1/2 PATs, 2/2 FGs (Made: 29, 38); 7.00 fantasy points
This past month hasn’t been good to the Packers as a whole, and even the oft-reliable Crosby hasn’t avoided the malaise.
He’s missed two field goals and two extra points in the past four games; that followed only 4 misses of any kind from the start of 2015 — including zero missed extra points in that time.
I mentioned in my most recent special teams recap that this may be the time to start being concerned about Crosby’s misses, but I think Green Bay will do a better job on offense this week, giving him mostly extra point chances and closer-range field goal tries; that should make it easier for him to bang through all his opportunities.
If you find another kicker who isn’t fighting through a relative slump, I might suggest going with them. If not, there is enough reason to hope that Crosby can put a few unfortunate kicks behind him quickly to get back to his multiple years of consistent attempts that came before them.
