Gano appeared to tweak his right leg during his final kickoff in the fourth quarter of Thursday's 22-21 loss to the Eagles, Tom Canavan of the Associated Press reports. Gano drilled all three of his extra-point attempts before the kickoff and wasn't needed thereafter. The Eagles scored a go-ahead touchdown on the ensuing possession before Giants quarterback Daniel Jones coughed up a game-sealing fumble with less than 30 seconds left. Because the Giants were unable to advance the ball far enough down the field for a potential game-winning field goal, it's unclear if Gano would have been able to kick. Gano's status should gain clarity when the Giants release their first Week 8 injury report next Thursday.
Gano made two field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 20-19 win over Washington. Gano did most of his work in the first half, connecting on a 33-yarder on the Giants' first offensive drive and adding a 20-yard chip shot in the second quarter. The 33-year-old squeezed in two extra points -- a season high -- as well. He's now made at least two field goals in five straight games and ranks seventh in the league with 51 total points. The Giants' inconsistent and shaky offense is a concern for Gano, but he keeps producing anyway. He should be considered a solid option in Week 7 against the Eagles, which have allowed at least 23 points in four straight outings.
Gano connected on all four field-goal attempts and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Cowboys. Only four kickers this season have made more than two field goals from beyond 50 yards, but Gano drilled three from that distance Sunday, adding a 25-yarder and two extra points for good measure. The 33-year-old kicker has now hit at least three field goals in three straight games, and he's missed just one kick all year. He gets plenty of opportunities even when facing good defenses, so he should be on fantasy radars in Week 6 against Washington.
Gano made all three field-goal attempts in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Rams. Gano accounted for all of the Giants' points in Week 4, as he was a perfect 3-for-3 in a second straight game. The 33-year-old kicker has now connected on nine of 10 field goals this year, and his only miss was from 57 yards in Week 2. Although the Giants aren't moving the ball well right now, Gano's Week 5 matchup is encouraging, as the Cowboys have allowed a league-high 36.5 points per game.
Gano drilled all three field-goal attempts in Sunday's 36-9 loss to the 49ers. It was a rough afternoon for the Giants, so Gano's perfection was one of the long bright spots. He hit kicks from 52, 47 and 42 yards out to produce the Giants' only points. Gano has now connected on six of seven field goals and both extra points this season. The Giants' lethargic offense is a concern for Gano's fantasy outlook, so he is a low-floor player moving forward.
