Crosby has converted on four of five field goals in the preseason, making from distances of up to 49 yards, with his only miss coming from 53 yards out.
Crosby entered camp as the only kicker on the Packers' roster and is firmly entrenched as the kicker. He will likely get plenty of chances to tack on extra points and kick field goals as part of a Green Bay team with one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL.

Mason Crosby missed two field goals in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Eagles.
Crosby came into Sunday's game 19-of-21 on the year, but struggled with the wind at Lambeau as he missed from 53 and 42 yards out. It's unlikely he's regressed to 2012 form, but fantasy owners should be seeking more stable offenses when looking for a kicker this week. Crosby can be scooped back up once Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns.

Packers K Mason Crosby is 9-of-9 on field goals so far this season.
A year after going an embarrassing 21-of-33 (63.6 percent) and being forced into a pay-cut, Crosby has his groove back. "I think he is much more rhythmic at this point," Packers special teams coach Shawn Slocum said. "It allows him to be in balance when he strikes the ball." Now that Crosby is kicking with confidence and the Packers are moving the chains with ease once again, he's back as a weekly K1 option.

Packers K Mason Crosby has agreed to a contract restructure.
Crosby was scheduled to earn a $2.4 million base salary this season. But after going a brutal 21-of-33 (58.8 percent) last year and continuing to struggle through camp, he's now an incentive-based player. He'll get a $800K salary and can make up the $1.6 million through roster bonuses and performance goals. Crosby is on track to be the Packers' kicker in Week 1, but fantasy owners should seek out someone with more confidence right now.

Mason Crosby made just 3-of-8 field goal attempts at Saturday's "Family Night."
"He definitely didn't take a step in the right direction with his performance," coach Mike McCarthy said. "That's what Family Night's for. He'll be evaluated. He's definitely got to do better than that because that's not going to cut it." Crosby made just 63.6 percent of his field goals last season, the worst rate in the league, and he's competing with Gio Tavecchio for the job in Green Bay.
