Packers | Matt Forte a fit in Green Bay?

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 08:36:52 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte would be an ideal fit for the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs. Packers RB James Starks will be a free agent, and RB Eddie Lacy had a down year in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Forte's fantasy value would probably be more fruitful elsewhere unless the Pack heavily reduced Lacy's workload. However, Forte is a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues at worst.

Packers | Scott Tolzien looking for chance to start

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:53:32 -0800

Green Bay Packers backup QB Scott Tolzien, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March of 2016, has expressed his desire to become a starter in 2016. The Packers drafted QB Brett Hundley in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft to be QB Aaron Rodgers' long-term backup.

Packers | Uncertain if James Jones returns

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:02:59 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR James Jones will be 32 this offseason, and typically general manager Ted Thompson avoids receivers of that advanced age. However, Jones played 1,205 out of 1,316 snaps (91.6 percent) while leading the team in receiving yardage (971) with 17.8 yards per reception. He is also a favorite of QB Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Jones looked good and was a tremendous last-minute addition for the team, or the receivers unit would have been a real disaster once Jordy Nelson went down. Jones will get paid somewhere next season, but his best years have been in the Green Bay organization and he has looked lost without Rodgers.

Packers | Andrew Quarless not expected back

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:02:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Andrew Quarless is not expected back in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Quarless had a chance to step up once Jermichael Finley was injured and no longer available, but he never took hold and was eventually passed up by Richard Rodgers once he came along last season.

Packers | Davante Adams was huge disappointment

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:01:33 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams was a huge disappointment last season, dropping 12 of his 96 targets, or 12.5 percent. He also averaged just 9.7 yards per reception, and only 3.0 yards after the catch. Beat writer Rob Reischel feels Adams might simply be in a fight for a roster spot in training camp and the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Adams had a chance to shine once Jordy Nelson went down in preseason and he blew his golden opportunity. He might never get the chance to start again, at least in Green Bay. Fantasy players will want to avoid him until the late rounds in 2016, if even then.

Packers | Randall Cobb would love less attention

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:00:51 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb was unable to step up and fill the role as No. 1 wideout once WR Jordy Nelson (knee) went down, but part of the reason he saw so much attention was the failure of WR Davante Adams to step up as a secondary receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb still managed 79 receptions, but he also turned in a career-worst 10.5 yards per catch. He is much better as a complementary receiver rather than the go-to option. He is still a solid WR2/3 or flex fantasy option in most formats, but he'll need Nelson to bounce back.

Packers | Jordy Nelson has resumed running

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 22:00:15 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) started to run recently and he is hopeful of being a full participant when training camp begins this summer. "I think Jordy will come back better than ever," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "Just like you knew he would, he's so far ahead with the rehab, he looks great. There's no reason to think he won't be as good as new."

Fantasy Tip: Nelson will be 31 next season, and coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, he is a risky fantasy pick at best. In past years he has gone in the early rounds, but let him be other people's risk that early. If he slips into the area of Round 6 through 8, he is worth a spot then if you have your less risky starters selected first.

Packers | Fan fave John Kuhn to hit market?

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 21:59:01 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent FB John Kuhn would like to play another year or two. While his blocking has been on the decline, and he is 33 years old, he is a favorite of QB Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Kuhn isn't much of a fantasy option at all, although his presence, even if his blocking isn't what it used to be, helps Rodgers and the running game, too.

Packers | James Starks could seek job elsewhere

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 21:58:23 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB James Starks is set to turn 30 later this month. While that is generally an age running backs see a decline, he has plenty of tread on the tires with just 555 carries in six NFL seasons. He might seek a chance at a No. 1 running back job elsewhere.

Fantasy Tip: Starks showed a lot more burst than Eddie Lacy last season, and he showed he can play at a high level for long lengths of time. He'll be an interesting player to watch heading into 2016 if he moves to another organization.

Packers | Eddie Lacy well over playing weight

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 21:57:53 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was listed at 234 pounds during the season, but beat writer Rob Reischel says it is a good bet Lacy was at least 25 pound heavier than that. During his 61-yard run in the playoff against the Arizona Cardinals he took 12.02 seconds to complete the play.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy was just the fourth player in team history to post back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, but 2015 was a disaster and he averaged just 4.05 yards per carry, lowest of his career. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract, so between the team wanting him to be in shape and the fact he'll be playing for a payday, expect quite the bounce back.
