So far he hasn't missed this season and is in a high scoring offense. Wondering if he's found his old form or if this is a flash in the pan.

This guy has one of the highest upsides, as shown the past week(week 5). Bye week has also passed so he is very close to fire and forget in leagues where Add/Drops are restricted.

He is solid. high scoring offense and rodgers not playing to his potential leaving many 3 point drives. GB doesnt have the best schedule going forward vs D which should continue to leave unfruitful drives near the red zone. Top 5 ROS

Not sure about him, his value is really in PAT even in his big season he had 68 PAT

He's not that great at kicking FGs (even in best season 85% only) and plays half his games in the rough conditions at green bay

Didnt see it coming. Last year packer fans were crossing their fingers on extra points. Now he is a machine, glad he figured it out.

I think for FF purposes volume matters more than FG% and Distance. Alex Henery Ranks 24th in FG% so far this season with 80%, but ranks 5th in FP. Also take Greg Zuerlein aka Greg the Leg aka Legatron aka Young G.Z aka I rank 22 in FP for kickers because my team sucks for example. Ill take 85% FG kicking in a high scoring offense any day of the week. Crosby is ranked 12 in FP at the moment including his Bye Week, but should be in the top 5 ROS.

Kinda surprised I was able to pull this dude from the free agent pool last week after waivers passed.  Follow the quarter backs they say.  I'd say this is one of the more high upside kickers this year.

I had to drop Hartley and initially picked up Henery .. but then noticed Crosby was out there. His bye has passed, so you won't have to worry about swapping kickers again. He has been money the past few weeks, and it looks like the confidence issue is in the past.

i know kickers don't mean much, but i was about to put my head through a wall.
Opposing kickers getting 10, 12, 14, 20. i was getting NOTHING.
A horrid combination of Dawson/Novak gave me  FP weeks of 8, 3, 1, 3, 2.
Now that I own Crosby, got my first double digit kicker output!!!!
Keep it going Masonite!

Oh yeah now that my league's "luckbox" has him...expect double-digits every single week.

Kickers don't get any respect I swear. It makes a big difference when your kicker gets double digits every week and your opponent gets single digits. If your opponent also gets double digits it allows you to keep up without having to overcompensate from the rest of your team.

With Crosby always play him against tough defenses that can make Green Bay stall. Green Bay can typically move the ball against anyone but vs tough defenses he should get a lot more field goal opportunities because they can prevent Green Bay from scoring touchdowns.

If he is against weak defenses I would pick up a kicker with a great matchup for that week and play them instead.

The recipe for a good kicker is a an offense that can move the ball but struggles to finish off drives. That is GB this year and looking at their schedule there is more to come. I dropped Blair Walsh for Crosby last week - not looking back.
