Packers | More carries for James Starks?

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 17:20:23 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks did not register a carry in the team's Week 4 game, and head coach Mike McCarthy said that will change going forward. "James Starks should touch the football every single game," McCarthy said Tuesday, Sept. 30. "That will not happen again."

Fantasy Tip: Although Starks is likely to see some more touches going forward, it remains to be seen just how many carries he will take from Eddie Lacy. Even at his $3,000 salary (6% of cap) at FantasyScore, Starks isn't worth the risk in Week 5. However, the fact the Packers will make it a point to have Starks involved makes the struggling Lacy an even riskier pick until the backfield rotation becomes clearer.

Packers | Jarrett Boykin inactive

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 08:36:24 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin is inactive for the Week 4 game Sunday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Davante Adams ($3,900; 7.8% of the cap) is a good bargain bin flex option this week.

Packers | Jordy Nelson piling up targets

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 20:56:38 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson's 12.3 targets per game are the most in the NFL after three weeks, and WR Randall Cobb ranks second on the team with 7.0 targets per game.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb has padded his point total this season by catching three touchdowns, but Nelson is clearly Aaron Rodgers' go-to weapon right now. Cobb will cost $7,4000 (14.8% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 4 and Nelson will cost $8,300 (16.6% of cap), but Nelson could be worth the extra cost because of the hefty amount of targets he has been seeing.

Packers | Randall Cobb looks to break out

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:26:11 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4. In his final meeting against the Bears in Week 15 of the 2012 season, he had six grabs for 115 yards. In his only meeting last season against the Bears, he managed two catches for 55 yards, and both grabs went for touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb is a solid value in FantasyScore at $7400 (or 14.8 percent of the salary cap), especially since he has three touchdown grabs in the first three games.

Packers | Jordy Nelson looks to stay hot

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:09:58 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4. In last season's regular season finale against Chicago, Nelson went for 10 receptions and 161 yards, and he has at least four receptions and 67 yards in the past four meetings with the Bears.

Fantasy Tip: One thing that stands out for fantasy owners, Nelson has found the end zone just twice in nine meetings with the Bears, and that happened in the same game in Week 16 of the 2011 season. Due to his lack of career touchdowns against Chicago, he might be considered a little overpriced at $8300 in FantasyScore (or 16.6 percent of the salary cap).

Packers | Aaron Rodgers likes facing Chicago

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:06:09 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4, a team he has had success against over the years. Over his past five full games against the Bears, he has tossed two or more touchdowns in four starts, while throwing for 283 or more yards in four of those outings. In Week 9 last season he was injured against Chicago after just two pass attempts.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is the third-most expensive option on the FantasyScore board at $8900 (or 17.8 percent of the salary cap), but he should at least be good for 275 yards and two touchdowns. The same cannot be said of the other similarly priced options on the board.

Packers | Eddie Lacy looking to score big

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 18:05:39 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has faced his team's Week 4 opponent, the Chicago Bears, just twice. He posted a rushing touchdown in each matchup last season, and he ran for 150 yards on 22 carries in the Week 9 matchup against the Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has struggled during the early going, averaging a paltry 3.1 yards per carry while failing to find the end zone on the ground or through the air. In fact, his highest rush total of the season is 43 yards in Week 2. At $8000, his FantasyScore salary is a bit high, but with the Bears ranking just 26th in the NFL against the rush, good things could be just around the corner for the Packers runner.
