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.

Packers | Trevor Davis has good first day

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 08:42:32 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Trevor Davis had three big catches in the first day of training camp Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: The fifth-round pick has a ways to go before he enters the WR5 mix in fantasy, but it's a good start.

Packers | Jordy Nelson on PUP

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 08:39:53 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 26. Head coach Mike McCarthy said there are no long-term concerns with Nelson, and he's likely to be activated at some point in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Now 31, questions linger if he can return to the 98-1,519-13 monster he was in 2014. He's still in the WR1 category, but there are a few players with more upside and stability.

Packers | GB high on Damarious Randall

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 05:48:00 -0700

Green Bay Packers CB Damarious Randall has the makeup of a shutdown cover corner in the eyes of the Packers. He's expected to play more and have a bigger impact this season.

Packers | Ty Montgomery placed on PUP

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:11:36 -0700

The Green Bay Packers placed WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery's ankle has reportedly been improving, so he shouldn't last on the PUP list long. The Packers are deep at the receiver position, but he is in the mix for a No. 3 or 4 job. On most teams, that's not terribly attractive from a fantasy perspective, but with Aaron Rodgers at the helm he is worth a look in the later rounds in most fantasy leagues.

Packers | Some Packers may not practice

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 11:19:27 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) and TE Jared Cook (foot) and others may initially be held out of training camp practices.

Fantasy Tip: It would behoove the Packers to take it easy with Nelson, who is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament. If Nelson doesn't suffer any setbacks, though, he's primed for another WR1 season. Meanwhile, it's still unclear if Cook will be starting at tight end for Green Bay. Richard Rodgers could take that spot, but neither should be pursued as a fantasy starter.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers in great shape

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 11:09:29 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is in the best shape of his football career, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Rodgers stopped eating dairy this offseason as part of a more stringent diet.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Aaron Rodgers is a good Aaron Rodgers. Not only is he in good shape, but he'll have his top receiver back in Jordy Nelson. As is the case in most seasons, Rodgers should be one of the first quarterbacks taken in fantasy drafts.

Packers | James Starks a red-zone weapon?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:43:19 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks' ability on screen passes makes him a weapon in the red zone, running backs coach Ben Sirmans said.

Fantasy Tip: Starks' ability as a pass-catcher should earn him a steady role in the offense and make him a RB3 candidate, especially in PPR formats. His value could receive a further boost if Eddie Lacy can't stay in shape and falls out favor.

Packers | Eddie Lacy must impact passing game

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:31:32 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy will be pushed into the passing game, according to running backs coach Ben Sirmans, but Sirmans said Lacy will have to beat man coverage. Last year, RB James Starks played 68 more snaps than Lacy and caught 27 more passes.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's inability to stay in shape has opened the door for Starks to take on a bigger role. Both backs are RB3 candidates, but Starks is the better bet in PPR formats.

Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 20:41:20 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) appears to be ahead of the curve in his rehabilitation, and Nelson said he would have been able to play in the Super Bowl last year had the Packers qualified.

Fantasy Tip: Any player coming off a major knee injury carries some risk, but Nelson has too much upside as Aaron Rodgers' go-to weapon to slip past the second round.

Packers | Green Bay players asked about PEDs

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 20:26:21 -0700

Packers | Richard Rodgers starter over Jared Cook?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 16:44:40 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers is expected to start over TE Jared Cook, not just in 2016, but for the next few seasons, according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. An advantage Rodgers has this season is that he is in better shape after weighing up to 272 pounds last year.

Fantasy Tip: The tight end position has been fairly underwhelming in Green Bay for a few years now. Rodgers and Cook could very well play as a committee together when all is said and done. Neither should be drafted as a starting fantasy tight end.
