Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy will have his touches limited next season in order to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "I'm conscientious of how many times each guy touches the ball, how much each guy plays, especially the running back. I think you have to be smart there," McCarthy said. McCarthy indicated he is not looking for Lacy to abandon his physical running style.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy should continue to see most of the playing time at running back and be a receiver out of the backfield. Lacy finished seventh in the NFL in rushing this past season and should be a first-round pick in most drafts next season.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers may be regularly in the pistol formation in 2015, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The Packers used the formation often after Rodgers suffered a calf injury in 2014 in order to take stress off his leg. "I like the pistol," McCarthy said during a break at the NFL owners meetings this week. "I think there's a lot of value regardless of the injury to Aaron. I know he likes it. There's a place for it year-round in your offense." McCarthy hasn't used the pistol formation for a read-option offense, and it's unlikely McCarthy will ask Rodgers to become a read-option quarterback. The pistol formation would add an element of unpredictability to the Packers offense.
Fantasy Tip: The Packers offense should continue to be one of the better units in the NFL again in 2015 with Rodgers at the helm and with Randall Cobb returning. Adding some unpredictability should only help Green Bay's offense be more productive. Rodgers is an elite quarterback and is arguably the top fantasy football quarterback to come off the board.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson probably will miss some offseason workouts but should be fine for training camp. Nelson ranked fourth in the league in receiving yards this past season with 1,519 yards and also recorded 13 touchdowns during the season. Nelson should be a No. 1 wide receiver for owners in drafts next season if the hip is not a factor.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has had more freedom to change plays pre-snap in recent seasons, and head coach Mike McCarthy giving up play-calling duties puts even more responsibility in the hands of Rodgers in running the offense. McCarthy and assistant coach Tom Clements will have more preparation to do during the week to make sure Rodgers has plenty of pre-snap options at his disposal. However, it's hard to know how the offensive setup will work with Clements as the primary playcaller.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has excelled with more responsibilities in his hands regarding the offense. With Randall Cobb coming back in free agency, there's no reason to think Rodgers won't continue to be an elite QB1 from a fantasy perspective. With Drew Brees' team moving to more of a ground attack in 2015, Rodgers might very well be the unquestioned first QB off the board in drafts.

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) likely will not sign with the Green Bay Packers this offseason unless he is willing to accept the No. 4 wide receiver job, in the opinion of Pete Dougherty, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings may have a hard time finding a starting job this offseason but could find a role as a No. 3 receiver with a team. His value will be determined by his new team, but he likely will be a later-round pick in most drafts.
