Player Outlook
The Packers drafted Carlson out of Auburn in April, making him the replacement for 16-year veteran Mason Crosby. Kicking for the Tigers over five seasons, Carlson made all but three of his extra points and 71.8% of his field goals. That doesn't sound good, and his 29.4% rate from 50-plus yards out isn't great either. Maybe his biggest selling point is that his brother is Daniel Carlson, who has been excellent in the pros. Take a wait-and-see approach with Carlson this season and add him only once he's established some consistency.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Makes game-sealing kick

    Carlson made a 38-yard field goal and an extra point in Sunday's 18-17 victory over the Saints. Carlson only had a couple opportunities to put points on the board in Week 3, but his field goal early in the fourth quarter and his extra point late in the same stanza bookended an 18-0 scoring run that gave the Packers the win. Carlson remains perfect three games into his rookie season, but he has yet to make -- or even attempt -- more than one field goal in a game.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Logs six points in loss

    Carlson made a 33-yard field goal and all three extra points he attempted in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Falcons. Carlson fell a bit short of his Week 1 point total, both in the box score and in fantasy lineups, but he could have topped those marks had a penalty on Green Bay's opening drive not caused head coach Matt LaFleur to pass on a 56-yard field-goal attempt in favor of a punt. Carlson -- despite nailing a 52-yarder in Week 1 -- seemingly still has some trust to gain beyond 50 yards, but that should come with time, and he remains perfect two games into his rookie season.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Perfect in debut

    Carlson made a 52-yard field goal and all five extra points he attempted in Sunday's 38-20 victory over the Bears. It didn't take Carlson long to reward the faith the Packers placed in him after selecting him the sixth round of this year's draft, as he drilled the first field-goal attempt of his career right before halftime and was true on every kick he got up. It's of course early in the season, and it remains to be seen what type of consistency both Carlson and Green Bay's offense will develop. However, if both come close to what they showed in Week 1, the rookie could provide more value in fantasy leagues than anticipated.

  • Packers' Anders Carlson: Kicker heads to Green Bay

    The Packers selected Carlson in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 207th overall. Carlson is the younger brother of Daniel Carlson, who is one of the NFL's best kickers for the Raiders. The younger Carlson heads for a somewhat colder climate, where the Packers will presumably consider him as the potential successor to Mason Crosby. Carlson struggled with his accuracy at times at Auburn but has a great deal of kicking experience.
