Green Bay’s offense and defense have both been on a roll lately, which is why Mason Crosby is near the top of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Kicker Rankings for Week 12. The Packers have averaged more than 50 points per game over their last three, so it should be no surprise that Crosby has produced double-digit fantasy points in each. Points shouldn’t be that much of an issue for Green Bay this week against Minnesota, making Crosby a very appealing option. The only kickers we like better this week are Adam Vinatieri (at JAC) and Stephen Gostkowski (vs. DET). What’s one thing all three kickers have in common? They get to clean up after the NFL’s top three scoring offenses. Good gig to have.
Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
