Packers | Jeff Janis receiving high-level education

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 15:32:30 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis has been a pet project of sorts for QB Aaron Rodgers early in training camp, according to quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. "Working with the young receivers, (Rodgers has been) great. He'll go over after his set of reps and talk through it with them, especially with Jeff (Janis). They're getting a good relationship now, working together and talking about what they expect from each other," Van Pelt said.

Fantasy Tip: Janis is fighting with Davante Adams for the No. 3 job behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. It has been a fantasy-relevant position for some time in Green Bay and has taken on added importance with Nelson dealing with tendinitis in his non-surgically repaired left knee at the moment. Janis is an athletic freak who has reportedly struggled early in camp, but this kind of report lends support to the possibility he may be on the verge of breaking out soon. He's well worth a gamble in the final rounds on draft day.

Packers | Coaches praise Eddie Lacy

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 10:41:33 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Coach Alex Van Pelt praised RB Eddie Lacy (hamstring), saying he shows great patience and reads the game well. "He's a patient runner," Van Pelt said of Lacy. "But once that decision has been made, it's north and south. That's the strong point of him. You rarely see him make a bad read in the running game. It's just a natural thing as a runner. "He's always on track, he's always making the right reads and anticipates where the hole is going to be." There is a chance Lacy could be held out of the team's second preseason game as he continues to work his way back from a hamstring issue.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy should get most of the work out of the Packers backfield, and it appears he is close to putting his injury issues behind him.
