Packers | Mason Crosby being pushed hard

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:13:07 -0700

Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby is being pushed hard by PK Giorgio Tavecchio in training camp, and the decision on who wins the starting job is expected to come down to the final three preseason games. Crosby has reportedly outperformed Tavecchio on kickoffs in camp, while Tavecchio has made 89.7 percent (35 of 39) field goals, as opposed to 76.9 percent (30 of 39) for Crosby.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever wins the Green Bay kicker job is valuable from a fantasy perspective, as this team can score plenty of points. However, due to the uncertainty, avoid both Crosby and Tavecchio in earlier drafts until a clear-cut winner emerges.
