Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 2/23/17 3:44pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) ran publicly for the first time -- albeit in a pool during a rehab session at the University of Alabama -- since having ankle surgery a few months ago Thursday, Feb. 23.
Huddle Up: It looks like Lacy's injury that cost him 11 games of the 2016 season won't affect his status going into training camp. However, it remains to be seen where he'll end up, as the Packers may let him go into free agency. Lacy proved he can still be an effective starting running back, as he was averaging a career-high 5.1 yards per carry prior to going down with his ankle issue. His potential new situation will dictate where he should go in drafts next season.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/21/17 2:14pm ET
In 2016, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to have multiple seasons of 40 or more touchdown passes.
Huddle Up: Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Drew Brees are the other quarterbacks to accomplish the feat. Rodgers has been one of the most consistent and successful quarterbacks in NFL history, and he has shown no signs of slowing down either. There was more pressure on Rodgers with Eddie Lacy and James Starks sidelined for the better part of last season, but he was up to the task, as usual. As is the case every offseason, Rodgers should be one of the first quarterbacks taken in fantasy drafts.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 2/16/17 9:04pm ET
Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy has been fined over the last couple of seasons for not making weight by head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Weight issues and injuries have plagued Lacy in recent years, and despite some upside, he has become tough for fantasy owners to trust. Don't count on him being more than a flex option in 2017.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 2/12/17 10:45am ET
Impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy is expected to get a one-year deal worth about $2 million was plenty of incentives in free agency this offseason, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty.
Huddle Up: Dougherty received this information from an agent who has a client in the free-agent running back market, and it stands to reason. Lacy is a talented player, but weight struggles in each of the last two years has made it hard for the Green Bay Packers to trust him. It's hard to imagine Lacy landing a big contract anywhere else right now, so his best bet is probably to return to Green Bay on a prove-it deal. He'll be hard to trust as anything more than a flex option in fantasy, however.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 2/10/17 7:05am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is entering a make-or-break year in 2017, according to beat writer Rob Demovsky.
Huddle Up: Cobb's numbers have fallen two years in a row. Granted, he has battled through injuries both seasons. The Packers have a couple of options developing at the position, and Davante Adams is in his walk year. Cobb will be a WR3 option with upside in fantasy in what will be a year he needs to make a statement.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/10/17 8:58pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams tied for second in the NFL with 12 touchdown receptions in 2016, and QB Aaron Rodgers said Adams was able to produce because he was finally healthy.
Huddle Up: Adams still has the occasional drop, but he proved to be a valuable weapon for the passing attack, especially in the red zone. At worst, he should be a high-end WR3 in 2017.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 2/4/17 5:12pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson was named the Associated Press Comeback Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 4. He finished the year with 97 catches for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Huddle Up: After missing all of last season recovering from knee surgery, Nelson led the NFL in receiving touchdowns. He is a WR1 in all formats heading into 2017.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 1/30/17 5:08pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams saw his drop rate go from 12.5 percent in 2015 to only 6.2 percent in 2016. He also led the team in gains of over 35 yards.
Huddle Up: Adams receiver a bigger role in the passing game this season because of injuries at the position and finished with 997 yards and 12 touchdowns. He probably will be the team's third receiver in 2017 and should be considered a No. 3 in most fantasy leagues.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 1/30/17 5:16pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson averaged 3.58 yards after the catch, which was his lowest average since his rookie season. He had either zero or minus yards after the catch on 41 of his 105 catches in 2016. He did finish with 15 touchdowns during the season.
Huddle Up: Nelson returned from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and was able to play in all 16 regular season games. He finished the regular season with 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns and recorded 80 yards and one touchdown during the playoffs. Nelson should continue to be the main option in the passing game and can be a No. 1 receiver for fantasy owners in 2017.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 1/30/17 5:09pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb dropped only two of his 105 targets this season and led the team with a drop rate of 1.9 percent. Cobb also led the team with an average of 5.05 yards after the catch.
Huddle Up: Cobb dealt with an injury near the end of the season and was limited to 610 yards and four touchdowns during the regular season. He was able to post 260 yards and three touchdowns in three postseason games. Cobb will continue to be one of the team's starting receivers in 2017 and can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 1/27/17 7:41pm ET
Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Jared Cook is one of the players who will be a priority during free agency, and the front office is expected to be more aggressive pursuing free agents this offseason.
Huddle Up: Cook hit his stride down the stretch, seeing at least eight targets in five of the final six games. If he re-signs with the Packers, he will have a chance to sneak into TE1 territory in 2017.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 1/26/17 8:48am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery will remain at running back in 2017, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: The team will have to have someone to compete with him in the backfield, but the news actually perks his fantasy value. A return to receiver with the crowded roster would make it hard for him to make the squad. Montgomery is an RB3 option depending on what they do to supplement the position.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 1/26/17 10:44am ET
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he hopes impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy re-signs with the Packers this offseason.
Huddle Up: Lacy was limited to five games this season because of injury and could consider testing the free-agent market since he may not be the starting running back if he returns to the Packers. Lacy could be a No. 3 or No. 4 back for fantasy owners depending on his role with a team in 2017.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 1/23/17 5:10am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) suffered an injury to his ribs in the third quarter of the NFC Championship loss to the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Jan. 22. He did not return to the game.
Huddle Up: Montgomery played out of position during a crucial stretch for the team, but he was spotty at best. Aside from two touchdowns in the divisional game against the Dallas Cowboys and a 16-162-2 outburst late in the season against the Chicago Bears, he wasn't much of a factor in fantasy. The team will probably upgrade at the position, and he could be fighting for a spot in the receiving corps next season. He might be a final-round flyer late in drafts.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 1/22/17 8:21am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs), who is expected to play in the NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Jan. 22, ordered military-grade Kevlar padding to protect his fractured ribs, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Nelson was a limited participant in two of the team's three practice sessions during the week and is listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a risky WR2 option in playoff fantasy pools, assuming he is active for Sunday's contest.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 1/22/17 10:58am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is officially active for the NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Adams has caught 13 passes for 201 yards and one touchdown in the first two playoff games and should see a good amount of targets against the Falcons. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues this week.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 1/22/17 10:56am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) is officially active for the NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Nelson is expected to wear extra padding to protect his injured ribs, but he could still be limited because of the severity of the injury. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners but could be a No. 2 receiver in some leagues.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 1/22/17 3:43pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers connected on 27 of 45 passes for 287 yards and three touchdown passes. He was sacked twice and intercepted once.
Huddle Up: Judging by his standards, this was a poor effort. Fantasy gamers were rewarded with a sound statistical performance, but it paled in comparison to Matt Ryan's monstrous showing. Rodgers will be among the top two or three quarterbacks drafted in most leagues next summer.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 1/22/17 3:39pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook caught seven passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Atlanta had been weak against the position all year, but Cook's involvement has been steady in recent weeks. The Packers will have a decision to make as to re-signing the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 1/22/17 3:59pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery rushed three times for 17 yards and caught one pass for two yards in the NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Jan. 22.
Huddle Up: Montgomery will be an intriguing player in 2017 fantasy drafts. Assuming he remains at running back, consider him a weak RB2 in PPR or a great flex target.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 1/22/17 4:13pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) was held to three catches for 16 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Adams enjoyed a career year and will be an early draft target for gamers in 2017. While he should have a sizeable role again, be careful to not overvalue him.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 1/22/17 4:08pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) played through broken ribs, catching six passes for 67 yards and a late touchdown in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22.
Huddle Up: Nelson is coming off an NFL-leading 14-TD season, and he is bound to be a high draft choice in most fantasy leagues in 2017. Consider him as a WR1.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 1/22/17 4:36pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb caught six passes for a team-high 82 yards in the NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Jan. 22.
Huddle Up: Cobb comes with injury concerns and sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of Green Bay's wealth of weapons. He's a WR3 in most fantasy situations for 2017, but at only 26 years old, the six-year vet enters the prime of his career.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 1/21/17 5:40pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been under duress on 28.8 percent of his drop-backs this season but has posted a 71.8 QBR when getting pressured, the second-best mark this season and fourth-best since 2009.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has been brilliant for most of the second half of the season and is playing at a level few, if any, have approached at the moment. He has done a wonderful job recently of combining excellent pocket presence with sound decision-making outside the pocket, posting a 24:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio over his last nine outings. He'll need to continue playing at a high level Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, as most of his usual supporting cast is hurting.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 1/20/17 8:02am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) did more in practice Thursday, Jan. 19, than the team anticipated, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: There is optimism that he'll play in the NFC Championship against the Atlanta Falcons. However, he'll be affected by his injury and could be one hit or fall from exiting. He's a WR2 option with WR1 upside and clear risk.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 1/20/17 9:32am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has dropped back to pass 70 percent of the time during the playoffs this month - the highest rate of any team to win multiple games over the last 10 postseasons.
Huddle Up: With Rodgers playing as well as he ever has and Green Bay relying on receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery to carry the rushing attack, this isn't overly surprising. The Packers may not have much choice but to continue relying on the passing game despite a ton of injuries at receiver this weekend, as the Atlanta Falcons boast the league's highest-scoring offense and the Packers are decimated in the secondary.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 1/20/17 1:25pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Adams probably will be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. He will be a risky option for owners but can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is active.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 1/20/17 1:55pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Nelson likely will be a game-time decision because of the injury, so owners will need to check on the inactive list to see if Nelson will play. He will be a risky option for owners and may only be a No. 2 receiver if he does play.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 1/20/17 3:49pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (illness) said he has been dealing with an illness but will be ready to play in the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Rodgers will be ready to play against the Atlanta Falcons and will be a big factor in the game. He has played very well during the team's winning streak and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Geronimo Allison - WRPosted 1/19/17 7:35am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 22.
Huddle Up: Allison had three catches for 46 yards against the Dallas Cowboys last week. His upside will be limited if Jordy Nelson (ribs) returns, but he's a flex option against the Atlanta Falcons.
