Giants' Graham Gano: Goes to COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants placed Gano (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

Just days removed from putting pen to paper on a contract extension, Gano has tested positive for COVID-19 and will be away from the team for an undetermined amount of time, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. The Giants don't have another kicker on the active roster or practice squad, but with the team in the midst of its bye week it can wait to make a decision on who will be the placekicker for its next game Sunday, Nov. 29 at Cincinnati.

Giants' Graham Gano: Inks contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants and Gano agreed to a contract extension Sunday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Sidelined all of last season due to recurring knee issues, Gano found himself on the outs in Carolina due to the presence of Joey Slye, but the veteran kicker joined the Giants in mid-August and hasn't looked back. Through 10 games, Gano has hit true on 21 of 22 field-goal attempts and all 16 point-after tries, averaging 7.9 points per game in the process. The extension runs through the 2023 season and includes $14 million in new money -- $9.5 million guaranteed -- per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Giants' Graham Gano: Hits double digits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made all three of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 23-20 win over Washington.

Gano converted from 38, 48 and 42 yards on his respective field goals, which helped him accumulate his second-highest point total of the campaign. Through nine games, he now sports 70 points and has missed merely one of 33 total attempts.

Giants' Graham Gano: Makes all three kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made his only field-goal attempt as well as both of his extra-point tries in Monday night's 25-23 loss to the Buccaneers.

Gano converted from 33 yards on his lone field goal, which helped him maintain his record of just one miss on all 28 of his kicks this season. That consistency has enabled Gano to produce a respectable 59 points through eight games.

Giants' Graham Gano: Not listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano (leg) was not listed on the team's final injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Gano appeared to have tweaked his leg in last week's loss to the Eagles, but he'll be good to go after practicing in full capacity all week. A potent Buccaneers defense will likely hurt Gano's opportunities to score in droves, but he's at least attempted a field goal in all but one contest this season.

Giants' Graham Gano: May be nursing right leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Graham Gano: Rings up eight points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Graham Gano: Drills three long kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Graham Gano: Hits three kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Graham Gano: Lone scorer against 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Graham Gano: Misses kick in close loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made two of three field goals and his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 17-13 loss to the Bears.

Gano missed a 57-yard field goal wide left in the waning seconds of the first half, a mistake that is highlighted further by the Giants' four-point loss in which they were on the 10-yard line as time expired. Still, Gano has a strong track record, and his job won't be in jeopardy at this time. He'll look to bounce back in Week 3 versus the 49ers' depleted defense, although the Giants' offense will be without Saquon Barkley (knee) and possibly Sterling Shepard (toe) as well.

Giants' Graham Gano: Makes both kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made his only field-goal attempt as well as his lone extra-point try in Monday night's 26-16 loss to the Steelers.

Gano converted from 21 yards to begin the game, giving the Giants their first three points of the season. The veteran was only called upon once after, however, as New York struggled with consistency offensively. Gano will hope to be more involved in Week 2 versus the Bears.

Giants' Graham Gano: Set to kick for Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the Giants having released Chandler Catanzaro, Gano is now in line to serve as the team's placekicker, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Previously, it appeared as though Gano, who was released by the Panthers at the end of July, would need to compete with Catanzaro, but following Monday's move it looks like he'll serve as the Giants' kicker in 2020, a job held by Aldrick Rosas last season. Gano's fantasy upside is tied to the efficiency of the team's offense, helmed by second-year QB Daniel Jones.

Giants' Graham Gano: Finds opportunity in Big Apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano will sign with the Giants once he passes a physical and COVID testing, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Gano was cut by the Panthers on July 30 after losing the kicking competition to Joey Slye, but he didn't stay unemployed long. The 33-year-old Gano last played in 2018 when he connected on 14 of 16 (88 percent) of his field goals. He'll compete with Chandler Catanzaro for the Giants' starting kicker job once the deal is finalized.

Graham Gano: Deemed healthy by former coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano (knee) -- who has been released by the Panthers -- was deemed healthy by coach Matt Rhule on Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Though the Panthers elected to go with Joey Slye as their kicker this season, a healthy Gano is capable of helping another NFL team looking to bolster the position. The 33-year-old missed the entire 2019 campaign while recovering from surgery on his non-kicking leg, but Rhule's statement Wednesday indicates that Gano is now past the issue.

Graham Gano: Cut loose by Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers are cutting Gano (knee), Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Gano made 85.6 percent of his field-goal attempts in seven seasons with the Panthers, but he missed the entire 2019 campaign while recovering from surgery on his non-kicking leg. His absence created an opening for Joey Slye, who struggled on shorter kicks but led the NFL with eight field goals of 50-plus yards. This move will clear out $2.8 million in 2020 cap space, though it comes with $1.5 million in dead-money charges for both this season and next. The 33-year-old Gano should get a look with another team if he can pass a physical exam.

Panthers' Graham Gano: Competing for job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano (knee) is expected to compete with Joey Slye for the Panthers' kicking job during training camp and the preseason, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Gano is still completing his rehab for the left knee surgery he underwent in November, but he looks like he'll be ready to stake his claim to kicking duties once the Panthers resume working out, according to Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer. He had served as the Panthers' kicker since 2013 before being placed on injured reserve prior to the 2019 season. Slye ultimately replaced him and had an up-and-down debut season, converting 25 of 32 field-goal attempts -- including an 8-for-11 mark from 50-plus yards -- and 31 of 35 extra-point tries.

Panthers' Graham Gano: Recovering from surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano recently underwent surgery to address his left knee injury, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Gano's knee injury, the severity of which caused him to be placed on season-ending injured reserve, was previously referred to as soreness. He's working to fully recover in time for the 2020 campaign.

Panthers' Graham Gano: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

The timing of the transaction means Gano won't be eligible to return from IR this season, but he may be able to find a new team if he negotiates an injury settlement. The Panthers will move forward with preseason star Joey Slye as their new kicker.

Panthers' Graham Gano: May start season on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano is dealing with a sore knee, making him a candidate to start the season on injured reserve, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Gano has tended to knee injuries in both of the past two campaigns and even missed the final four games of 2018 with a left knee issue. If his plant leg remains a concern, the Panthers would be taking a prudent approach with the kicker to ensure he's available during the stretch run. The move cannot be made until the team makes roster cuts Saturday, but it appears as if Gano will yield place-kicking duties to Joey Slye to begin the year.
