Player Outlook
The Packers drafted Carlson out of Auburn in April, making him the replacement for 16-year veteran Mason Crosby. Kicking for the Tigers over five seasons, Carlson made all but three of his extra points and 71.8% of his field goals. That doesn't sound good, and his 29.4% rate from 50-plus yards out isn't great either. Maybe his biggest selling point is that his brother is Daniel Carlson, who has been excellent in the pros. Take a wait-and-see approach with Carlson this season and add him only once he's established some consistency.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Errant end to rookie season

    Carlson made two of three field-goal attempts and an extra point in Saturday's 24-21 loss to the 49ers. Carlson did not miss a kick over his first five games as a professional, but he misfired on six field-goal and five extra-point attempts before the regular season ended, and he tacked on one apiece during the playoffs, with his final miss proving particularly costly in a game Green Bay lost by three points. The Packers showed enough confidence in Carlson to draft him in the sixth round and hang onto him all season, but he will presumably face some sort of competition for his job leading up to the 2024 campaign.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Makes six of seven PAT tries

    Carlson made six of the seven extra points he attempted in Sunday's 48-32 wild-card victory over the Cowboys. Carlson missed five extra-point tries during the regular season, and he misfired once again in Green Bay's playoff opener. Only one of the misses really proved consequential -- four of them plus Sunday's coming in games the Packers won -- but with the games only getting bigger moving forward, Green Bay will undoubtedly be looking for perfection the rest of the way.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Perfect in defeat

    Carlson made two field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Buccaneers. Carlson did not score more than eight points in any of his first 11 appearances, but he has now put up at least that many in three straight games. He will have his work cut out for him to extend the streak, as Green Bay's next opponent -- Carolina -- ceded only two field-goal attempts and one made field goal over its last four contests.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Kicking woes continue

    Carlson made one of two field-goal attempts and two of three extra-point tries in Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Chargers. The rookie did not miss a kick over his first five games in the NFL, but he has now missed at least one attempt in four of five appearances. There has been no indication that Green Bay is considering changing kickers, but those who still have Carlson on their fantasy teams may want to, particularly with the Packers facing two teams -- the Lions and Chiefs -- in the next two weeks that have proven adept at limiting kicker production.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Ties season high in points

    Carlson made two of three field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-3 victory over the Rams. The eight points Carlson put on the board tied his season high and were the most he has recorded since Week 1. He could have a few scoring opportunities again in Week 10 facing a Pittsburgh team that has allowed opposing kickers to attempt at least three field goals six times in eight games this season. However, he will head into that contest ranked 30th among placekickers with 48 points.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Opportunities remain minimal

    Carlson made a 30-yard field goal and an extra point in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Vikings. Carlson made both kicks he attempted in Week 8, but as has been the case since Week 3, his opportunities to put points on the board were minimal. He will at least have the matchup on his side in Week 9, as the Packers face a Rams team that has been friendly to opposing kickers this season.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Misfires for first time

    Carlson made one of two field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Broncos. Carlson began his professional career by making seven straight field-goal attempts, but that streak came to an end Sunday, as he missed a 43-yard try late in the first half. He did make a shorter attempt later in the game and remains perfect on his 12 extra-point attempts. Carlson's success rate remains viable, but he is averaging only six points per game through six appearances.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Remains perfect on season

    Carlson made two field goals and an extra point in Monday's 17-13 loss to the Raiders. Carlson made two field goals for the second week in a row and is now a perfect 7-of-7 on field goals and 10-of-10 on extra points five games into his rookie season. While accuracy has not been an issue for Carlson, opportunity has been, and he has not put more than seven points on the scoreboard since recording eight points in Week 1.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Logs six points in loss

    Carlson made a 33-yard field goal and all three extra points he attempted in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Falcons. Carlson fell a bit short of his Week 1 point total, both in the box score and in fantasy lineups, but he could have topped those marks had a penalty on Green Bay's opening drive not caused head coach Matt LaFleur to pass on a 56-yard field-goal attempt in favor of a punt. Carlson -- despite nailing a 52-yarder in Week 1 -- seemingly still has some trust to gain beyond 50 yards, but that should come with time, and he remains perfect two games into his rookie season.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Kicker heads to Green Bay

    The Packers selected Carlson in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 207th overall. Carlson is the younger brother of Daniel Carlson, who is one of the NFL's best kickers for the Raiders. The younger Carlson heads for a somewhat colder climate, where the Packers will presumably consider him as the potential successor to Mason Crosby. Carlson struggled with his accuracy at times at Auburn but has a great deal of kicking experience.
