Mason Crosby

Kicker • Packers

Boom

Crosby entered the NFL as a rookie for the Packers in 2007 and he has held down the kicking job for 176 consecutive regular-season games. He has had some incredible seasons in Green Bay. Crosby finished in the top five in scoring five times (2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2014), and was the league’s leading scorer in his rookie campaign. Despite playing his home games on the oft-frozen tundra, Crosby has produced a reasonable FG accuracy rate of 80.2 percent. Factoring out a miserable 2012 when he made just 21 of 33 field goals, his accuracy improves to over 82 percent. Crosby has enough leg -- he has booted 29 field goals of 50 yards or more with a long kick of 58 yards in 2011.

Bust

With Aaron Rodgers missing most of 2017, Crosby’s output fell well short of preseason expectations. He attempted only 19 field goals, missing four of them. His 35 PATs (he made 33) fell from a total of 47 in 2016. He has kicked 30 or more field goals in just two seasons (2007, 2013). Although he has a strong leg, he is not very accurate beyond 50 yards. He has converted just 50.9 percent (29 of 57) from that distance.

Bottom Line

With the return of Rodgers, Crosby’s production should improve quite a bit from his dismal 2017. On the other hand, he hasn’t been an elite point producer since 2014. A top-15 finish among fantasy kickers is a relatively safe bet, and a top-10 finish is certainly not out of the question. Crosby is a good option for owners who don’t mind waiting to be among the last to select a kicker.
