Crosby made a 39-yard field goal in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Saints. The Saints shut down the Packers' offense in Week 1, and the field goal he made to close out the first half was his only scoring opportunity of the day. The Packers led the league in points per game last season, so it seems likely they will get on track on the weeks ahead. However, Crosby only got up 16 field-goal attempts all last season, so don't necessarily expect his chances to put three points on the board to increase in turn.
Crosby missed a 28-yard field goal attempt in Saturday's preseason finale against the Bills. He also had a 41-yard punt in the contest. The misfire certainly wasn't a positive for Crosby, but he missed only two field goal attempts over the last two seasons and has not had a shaky camp, so it should not be much cause for concern. While Crosby did punt for the first time in years Saturday, that was only in an emergency, and he will not pull double duty during the regular season. He will, however, handle the placekicking duties for the Packers just like he did the last 11 years.
Crosby made both extra points he attempted in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets. Crosby has not gotten many chances to kick this preseason, as his two extra points Saturday mark his only attempts through the Packers' first two exhibition contests. Meanwhile, second-year player JJ Molson handled kicking duties in preseason Week 1. Despite the presence of Molson in camp, Crosby is set to serve as Green Bay's kicker for a 12th straight season.
Crosby made all 16 field goals he attempted while converting a league-leading 59 of his 63 extra-point chances over 16 games in the 2020 season. 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-to-49-yard 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 he's almost certain to remain the team's kicker in 2021.
Crosby (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. 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.
