The Green Bay Packers might be in the market to add another offensive lineman, whether it is through a trade, waiver or free agency. The team lost OT Aaron Adams (knee) to a season-ending injury, and C JC Tretter (knee) will miss at least the first month of the regular season. The team currently has only two healthy backups, OT Derek Sherrod and OG Lane Taylor.

Green Bay Packers QBs Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien are expected to play in the final preseason game and still are competing for the No. 2 quarterback job. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he would like to give both quarterbacks equal playing time so he can evaluate better.

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "He's physical, his toughness, he's relentless," McCarthy said. "I think he's exceptional at the top of his route. You see his strength and balance to separate from a DB." Boykin's hold on the No. 3 receiver spot will likely limit WR Davante Adams as the fourth receiver.
Fantasy Tip: Boykin is worth a flier as a WR5 and is worth playing as a flex in good matchups.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy could be the leading rusher in the NFL in 2014, according to running backs coach Sam Gash. "Without a doubt," Gash said. "He has the capability of being the leading rusher and maybe even combined yards if he catches a lot of balls. I absolutely do think that. "I think he's a bell cow. He's a big guy, and he's physical."
Fantasy Tip: Lacy has a chance to be one of the best running backs in fantasy football in 2014, and should be drafted as an RB1 in all formats.
