Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby will continue to start despite missing four field goals and an extra point in Week 5's loss. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Crosby has to make those kicks but that he believes in him.
Huddle Up: Crosby easily had the worst game of his career, essentially single-handedly costing the Packers a win. Sticking with Crosby on fantasy squads won't be easy, but he has top-five upside when he's accurate.

Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby (illness) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Jan. 19.
Huddle Up: Rarely do kickers get their own individual updates, but after his heroics in the Divisional Round to help propel the Pack out of Dallas with a win, he certainly warrants the attention. Plus, Crosby has a nice matchup on tap in Atlanta, being indoors and kicking in a game that will feature plenty of points. He might be the top kicker to deploy this weekend.

Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby re-signed with the team on Tuesday, March 1, landing a four-year deal worth $16.1 million with a $5 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Crosby has ably handled the Packers' PK duties for the past nine seasons and will continue to be a fantasy favorite given Green Bay's perennial high-scoring offense.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent PK Mason Crosby is likely the next priority on the team's to-do list. Crosby has made 85% of his kicks since 2012.
Huddle Up: Crosby is a reliable kicker who has no issues with the inclement weather Green Bay faces from time to time. Given that the price tag for kickers isn't that steep, there's little reason to expect the Packers to let Crosby slip away.

The Green Bay Packers cut PK Zach Ramirez on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
Huddle Up: That means Mason Crosby will open his sixth straight season as the Packers' PK despite his 2012 struggles which saw him covert a career-low 63.6 percent of his FG attempts.

Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby connected on nine of his 10 field goals, winning a kicking period for the first time all camp in his battle against PK Giorgio Tavecchio Monday, Aug. 19. Tavecchio made eight of his 10 attempts, and he has hit 45 of 51 field goal attempts in practice/scrimmages, while Crosby has made 41 of 51. The team plans to continue the kicking competition for at least another week.
Huddle Up: The Packers put up a ton of points, so whomever wins the kicker battle will have some fantasy value. Crosby was brutal last season, so he'll need to prove he's still got it or Green Bay fans will have to learn how to pronounce "Tavecchio".

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team is sticking with PK Mason Crosby. "When results aren't what you want, you have to choose which way to go. Our choice is to stick with Crosby," McCarthy said.
Huddle Up: The Pack may be sticking with Crosby, who's missed 12 of 29 fieled-gal attempts, but fantasy teams outside of 32-team leagues shouldn't be.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said following Week 11 he has no plans to release PK Mason Crosby despite his struggles. "We will continue with Mason," McCarthy said. "We will not blink as far as our commitment to him."
Huddle Up: Crosby has been a bit off this season, converting just 61 percent of his field goal attempts. But it sounds as if the Packers aren't looking to replace him, banking that he'll be more like the Crosby who made almost 80 percent of his kicks the previous five seasons. Between the misses and far more PATs than FGAs, Crosby has been a fantasy dud this year and his owners needn't be nearly as patient as the Packers.

Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby said he is getting into his winter mindset with the first snow of the season falling this week. Crosby didn't seem too worried about the changing weather conditions. 'Not really,' Crosby said. 'It was raining out in San Diego last week, and the footing was a little dicey there. I had a couple of issues and was sliding a little bit until I got the right cleats on.'
Huddle Up: Lost in all the Packers touchdown celebrations is the fact that Crosby is kicking the lights out. He's 15-of-15 on FGs with shots from 56 and 58 yards, and a top-7 fantasy kicker in all formats.
