Giants' Graham Gano: Stellar season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano finished 2020 having missed only one field goal all year in 32 attempts, including six from beyond 50 yards.

Gano did his best Justin Tucker impression and was rewarded with a three-year contract extension as a result. The only knock on Gano were the lack of extra points, thanks to a sluggish Giants offense.

Giants' Graham Gano: Connects on three kicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made two field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Ravens.

Gano has now connected on 27 straight field-goal tries, including 13 from beyond 40 yards. The 33-year-old has been phenomenal, and he carries a high ceiling in a Week 17 matchup against the weak Cowboys defense.

Giants' Graham Gano: Scores six points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made both field-goal attempts in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Browns.

Gano made kicks from 39 and 37 yards, putting up the Giants' only points in Week 15. The 33-year-old kicker continues to be automatic this year, as he's connected on 28 of 29 field-goal tries and has only misfired from 57 yards. He'll look to keep the hot streak alive in Week 16 against the Ravens.

Giants' Graham Gano: Just one kick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano did not attempt a field goal but made his only extra-point try in Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Cardinals.

Gano hardly got a chance to kick Sunday, resulting in a second straight single-digit scoring performance. He'll hope for more opportunities in Week 15 versus the Browns.

Giants' Graham Gano: Misfires on extra point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made a 48-yard field goal and missed his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Seahawks.

This was the first time since Week 8 that Gano didn't attempt more than one field goal, and his streak of 17 straight extra-point conversions also came to an end. However, his 48-yarder made a big difference in the five-point win, forcing the Seahawks to go for a touchdown instead of a field goal on their final drive. Gano will hope for more opportunities next week against the Cardinals.

Giants' Graham Gano: Drills four field goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano made all four field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Bengals.

Gano extended his perfect streak to nine games, as he's connected on 22 field-goal attempts and 15 extra-point tries in that stretch. He drilled four kicks from beyond 50 yards over that span as well. Gano's automatic right now, but his opportunities could take a slight hit if Daniel Jones (hamstring) is forced to miss next week's game against the Seahawks.

Giants' Graham Gano: Lifted from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants activated Gano (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

In turn, Gano will kick for the Giants in Sunday's game against the Bengals. The 33-year-old has been perfect over the last eight games, as he's connected on all 18 field-goal attempts, including four from beyond 50 yards, and all 14 extra-point tries.

Giants' Graham Gano: Optimism about Week 12 availability
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gano's (illness) availability for a Week 12 contest against the Bengals remains hopeful after Giants coach Joe Judge expressed more optimism Friday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Gano, who tested positive for COVID-19 during the Giants' bye week, will need to avoid any soreness ahead of Sunday's tilt in order for Judge to give him the green light. If a setback were to occur, Ryan Santoso appears next in line to handle kicking duties.

Giants' Graham Gano: Hopeful for Week 12 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants are hopeful that Gano (illness) will be available for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Gano still has to clear a number of benchmarks before he can come off the reserve/COVID-19 list, but it's at least an encouraging sign that the Giants aren't yet willing to rule him out for Week 12. The veteran kicker's positive test occurred during New York's bye week, just one day after he inked a contract extension with the team.

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.

October 5, 2020 04:00 PM
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.
