Packers | Aaron Rodgers in rare company

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 14:14:47 -0800

In 2016, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to have multiple seasons of 40 or more touchdown passes.

Fantasy Tip: Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Drew Brees are the other quarterbacks to accomplish the feat. Rodgers has been one of the most consistent and successful quarterbacks in NFL history, and he has shown no signs of slowing down either. There was more pressure on Rodgers with Eddie Lacy and James Starks sidelined for the better part of last season, but he was up to the task, as usual. As is the case every offseason, Rodgers should be one of the first quarterbacks taken in fantasy drafts.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson made history

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 14:08:13 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson became the first quarterback-receiver duo since 1956 to lead the NFL in passing touchdowns (40) and receiving touchdowns (14) in the same season.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers had to rely on Rodgers and the passing game early and often without Eddie Lacy and James Starks for much of the season. Nelson is a touchdown machine when healthy and should be viewed as a low-end WR1 as a better fit in standard leagues. Rodgers is a perennial candidate for the No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Packers | Jared Cook played well late in season

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 15:22:21 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Jared Cook averaged 13.5 yards per catch over the final seven games of the regular season, which ranked third among tight ends in the NFL in the category.

Fantasy Tip: Cook could re-sign with the Packers this offseason but probably would receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market. He was limited to 10 games in 2016 because of an injury but still finished the season with 377 yards and one touchdown. He could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end if he re-signs with the Packers but may be a better No. 2 tight end in leagues.

Packers | Fines not motivating Eddie Lacy

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 21:04:27 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy has been fined over the last couple of seasons for not making weight by head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Weight issues and injuries have plagued Lacy in recent years, and despite some upside, he has become tough for fantasy owners to trust. Don't count on him being more than a flex option in 2017.

Packers | One-year deal in Eddie Lacy's future?

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 10:45:15 -0800

Impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy is expected to get a one-year deal worth about $2 million was plenty of incentives in free agency this offseason, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty.

Fantasy Tip: Dougherty received this information from an agent who has a client in the free-agent running back market, and it stands to reason. Lacy is a talented player, but weight struggles in each of the last two years has made it hard for the Green Bay Packers to trust him. It's hard to imagine Lacy landing a big contract anywhere else right now, so his best bet is probably to return to Green Bay on a prove-it deal. He'll be hard to trust as anything more than a flex option in fantasy, however.

Packers | Davante Adams healthy in 2016

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 20:58:19 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams tied for second in the NFL with 12 touchdown receptions in 2016, and QB Aaron Rodgers said Adams was able to produce because he was finally healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Adams still has the occasional drop, but he proved to be a valuable weapon for the passing attack, especially in the red zone. At worst, he should be a high-end WR3 in 2017.

Packers | Randall Cobb entering pivotal year

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 07:05:33 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is entering a make-or-break year in 2017, according to beat writer Rob Demovsky.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb's numbers have fallen two years in a row. Granted, he has battled through injuries both seasons. The Packers have a couple of options developing at the position, and Davante Adams is in his walk year. Cobb will be a WR3 option with upside in fantasy in what will be a year he needs to make a statement.
