Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis was singled out by head coach Mike McCarthy Tuesday, June 2. "Jeff Janis is really moving forward. (Janis) came on at the end of last year. (He) was ready to play," McCarthy said.
Fantasy Tip: Janis is a player on the move, and he could work his way into a decent role in the Green Bay offense in training camp and the preseason. For now, he is a wait-and-see guy with some upside, but if an injury or two also happens, he could find himself in a more prominent role.

Fantasy Tip: Whether he is given more freedom or not, Rodgers is entrenched among the elite fantasy quarterbacks heading into 2015.

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (knee) participated in individual drills but did not do any 11-on-11 drills during the OTA session Thursday, May 31, as he continues to work his way back from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 28, as he continues to recover from offseason hip surgery. A timetable for his return has not been disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: There's no reason for Nelson to rush back from the surgery, especially when we're still in May and OTAs have just begun. Assuming he makes a full recovery from the surgery, Nelson should be considered a WR1 in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery is expected to work mainly as a return specialist to start the year with a few package plays on offense built in for him. He will probably deliver a few big plays, but he won't have the week-to-week impact needed to warrant consideration from fantasy owners.

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery, a third-round draft pick, signed his four-year rookie deal Wednesday, May 20, according to his agent, Damarius Bilbo. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Packers are hoping Montgomery can boost their return game after averaging 19.8 yards per punt return and 25.2 yards per kick return last year in college. "I just have this mentality that there's nothing I can't do," Montgomery said. "I whole-heartedly believe in my ability to do anything from any position. My ability to be versatile kind of sets me apart."

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery said he believes he can compete anywhere, anytime. "It's nothing against any of the other guys that are here. But we're all competitors. I'm going to be prepared to be able to go whenever and wherever the coaching staff decides to put me.
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery will be fighting for the No. 4 wide receiver position behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. He may not perform right away, but he could be an injury away from being a sleeper in 2015.

Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley has the tools to be a successful NFL quarterback when his time comes, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "[Hundley has] the ability to play beyond the designed play, the 2.3 seconds that everything's designed to go a certain way, get into extended plays and things like that, Brett has a ton of that," McCarthy said. While Hundley know he won't be taking Aaron Rodgers' place soon, he's still ready for when that time comes and will improve in the meantime. "I have a lot of confidence in my abilities, and I know what I can and have to work on."
