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 | Richard Rodgers trimmed down

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 21:16:05 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers weighed in at 258 pounds for the start of training camp after playing at 275 pounds last year, and he said his lighter frame makes it easier for him to come in and out of his breaks at the same speed.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Jordy Nelson and the addition of Jared Cook will make it tough for Rodgers to duplicate his 58-catch performance from last year. Don't expect him to be a starting-caliber fantasy tight end.

Packers | Nick Perry practices with first-team defense

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 19:11:10 -0700

Green Bay Packers LB Nick Perry took snaps with the first-team defense at practice Friday, July 29, opposite LB Clay Matthews. The team wants Perry to play more snaps this year in an attempt to lessen the workload of LB Julius Peppers, so that the 36-year-old veteran won't wear down near the end of the season.

Packers | Eddie Lacy accelerating

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 09:25:22 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has been finishing runs and showing the acceleration he had early in his career, according to running backs coach Ben Sirmans.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy is probably going to split the load with James Starks. Both should be in the RB3 discussion, but Lacy has the ability to win a lion's share at some point.

Packers | No timetable for Ty Montgomery

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 16:23:31 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) said he does not have a definite timetable for his return to practice but does say that his ankle feels great. Montgomery will have to compete for a roster spot when he is activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery said being placed on the PUP list was a precautionary move, so there is a chance that he will be able to practice soon. He has not done much in the offense over the last few years and should not be selected in fantasy drafts if he makes the team.

Packers | Randall Cobb references Pokemon GO

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:59:17 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb was at practice Tuesday, July 26, and was apparently bitten by Pokemon GO craziness in the offseason. "As a receiver group, we consider ourselves playing Pokemon right now. We're trying to catch them all. We're going to go out there and try making as many plays as we can," Cobb said.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners hope Cobb can be like a Vaporeon or a Snorlax with a CP of 1,500 or more tearing up opposing gyms. For those who aren't millennials or playing the game with their kids, it means fantasy owners hope Cobb can rack up 100 or more receptions, 10 touchdowns and continue to be a WR1/2 in all formats.

Packers | No timetable for Jared Cook

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:58:27 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (foot) does not have a timetable for a return from foot surgery, although a league source said Tuesday, July 26, that he might be on track to return by the second week of preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Cook is behind Richard Rodgers on the depth chart, and not expected to be a fantasy target for most owners unless Rodgers suffers some sort of a long-term injury.

Packers | Eddie Lacy still rather heavy

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:57:08 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was a bit slimmer on the first day of training camp Tuesday, July 26, then he was for organized team activities (OTAs). He went back to P90X trainer Tony Horton for a second time this offseason, getting down to an estimated 240 pounds according to beat writer Pete Dougherty.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was a huge disappointment in 2015, as his conditioning was called into question, and many likely will have a sour taste in their mouth as a result. He has first-round fantasy ability, but the fact he is working on his weight again is not a great sign. When he is healthy and in tip-top shape, he is a great fantasy option, especially in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). However, make sure to have plenty of depth at the position.

Packers | Jordy Nelson tweaked other knee

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:28:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list because he tweaked his other knee, and not his knee that required season-ending surgery last year. Nelson added Week 1 is not in jeopardy, but he does not know when he will be ready to practice during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: On the surface, this sounds like a positive, but if Nelson is limited during training camp because both knees aren't 100%, it's a concern. Over the long haul, Nelson projects to finish as a No. 1 fantasy wide receiver, but he might not be the safest option in the first two rounds of drafts, either. The upside and floor are both there, but it's likely ill-advised to expect a 2014 output from the 31-year-old veteran. This is a situation to monitor over the coming weeks.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers talks weight loss

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:20:20 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he weighs less than he has in a long time, but his muscle mass is as strong as it was when he was 10 pounds heavier.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers remains an elite fantasy quarterback worth selecting as one of the first signal callers in drafts. It's likely not worth reading too much into his weight, but a commitment to health and being at his best entering his age-32 season is encouraging for his likelihood to live up to expectations in 2016.
