• Richard Rodgers - TE
    Posted 7/22/16 1:45pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: This is a reminder not to overlook the third-year tight end -- who finished ninth among fantasy tight ends last season -- in favor of the shiny new free-agent acquisition, but in all, Cook's arrival knocks both out of legitimate draftable position with a target split fully expected.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 7/22/16 1:49pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: All reports continue to speak glowingly of Nelson's progress, and that has him back in the WR1 conversation entering upcoming drafts.

  • John Kuhn - RB
    Posted 7/20/16 1:00am ET

    Free-agent FB John Kuhn (Packers) appears to be in the Green Bay Packers' rearview mirror and is not expected to re-sign. FB Aaron Ripkowski is expected to take over starting fullback duties.

    Huddle Up: Welcome news for Eddie Lacy and James Starks owners as Kuhn has vultured 23 TDs over the last eight seasons on the tundra.

  • Randall Cobb - WR
    Posted 7/14/16 4:52pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb led the team with 79 receptions in 2015, but he managed a career-low 10.5 yards per catch in 2015. He also had 14 dropped passes, more than any other Green Bay receiver over the past 25 years. And when Cobb drew more attention than usual from the slot, he couldn't separate from elite corners or nickel backs.

    Huddle Up: Cobb was a definite disappointment, falling to 26th among fantasy wideouts a season ago. Perhaps the return of fellow WR Jordy Nelson will lift all boats in G.B., and take away some of the extra defensive attention Cobb received.

  • Davante Adams - WR
    Posted 7/14/16 11:53pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams had a difficult season in 2015, and while he posted 50 receptions he averaged just 9.7 yards per catch. The last time a receiver with at least 25 receptions finished with that few yards per catch was in 1951. He dropped 12 of his 96 targets, while averaging just 3.0 yards per catch. With a deep receiving corps, beat writer Rob Reischel predicts Adams will need a big training camp and preseason for a roster spot.

    Huddle Up: Adams not only failed to step up in Jordy Nelson's absence last season, he's now put his spot on the team in jeopardy. Stay away in fantasy drafts in all but the deepest of leagues.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 7/3/16 12:31pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers said he is working to improve as an all-around player, and he views the addition of TE Jared Cook as an opportunity to learn from a veteran.

    Huddle Up: Cook's addition is a good thing for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense, but it hurts the fantasy stock of both G.B. tight ends as neither is ranked among the top 29 in the Huddle preseason rankings.

  • Jared Abbrederis - WR
    Posted 6/20/16 5:23pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis showed exemplary route-running this offseason, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy also praised the receiver's coverage recognition, breaking points and weight loss as high points. 'He plays the position technically and fundamentally at a very high level,' McCarthy added.

    Huddle Up: Abbrederis could be pushing Davante Adams and Jeff Janis for the third receiver role in Green Bay. It's a battle with fantasy upside and one worth keeping an eye on during training camp.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 6/16/16 12:56pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy worked out with P90X founder Tony Horton after the season, and Horton estimated Lacy lost 15 to 20 pounds during the workouts. Running backs coach Ben Sirmans said this week that Lacy might again work with Horton leading up to training camp. 'I'm hopeful,' Sirmans said. 'The information I got from what people have told me, it's helped him. So you always want to be able to do things that help people. I hope he'll do it.' After offseason workouts, head coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy still had work to do.

    Huddle Up: The offseason reports are tentatively promising regarding Lacy following his deeply disappointing 2015 campaign, and The Huddle currently has him ranked 12th among fantasy backs, making him a borderline RB1 prospect.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB
    Posted 6/14/16 12:57pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and other select veterans have been excused from mandatory minicamp this week by head coach Mike McCarthy. WRs Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson were also included in that group. 'The approach is different than the past,' McCarthy said. 'So, it's obviously tailored toward the younger players.' QB Brett Hundley will get most of the work with what is left of the No. 1 offense.

    Huddle Up: It hasn't been referenced specifically, but it looks like Nelson's preseason knee injury last August has made McCarthy and the organization (smartly) rethink their out-of-season routines.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 6/7/16 12:18pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (foot) is nursing a foot injury, but the team is not concerned about his outlook heading into the season. 'Jared Cook, we have no long-term concern with his situation. It will be good to have him back,' head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday, June 6.

    Huddle Up: Cook is a veteran, and while it would be nice to get him some reps with Aaron Rodgers and the starters there should still be plenty of time to acclimate him to the first team in training camp.

  • Jeff Janis - WR
    Posted 6/7/16 12:18pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis received praise from head coach Mike McCarthy about his work during organized team activities (OTAs). 'Jeff Janis is doing a lot of good things. He just needs to continue to progress through the fundamentals of the position,' McCarthy said Monday, June 6. 'Special teams he had an excellent last year last year, graded out as one of our top players. I'd like to see him that that same step as a wide receiver.'

    Huddle Up: Janis will battle with Davonte Adams for the third receivers spot in Green Bay--a role with fantasy upside further enhanced with both Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb coming off of injuries last season.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB
    Posted 6/7/16 12:18pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he has removed dairy from his diet in hopes that it will help him stay healthy and extend his career. He said he weighs around 218 pounds at this point, which is his lightest weight since 2007. 'I think that's how I can extend my career, if I can eat a little bit better. Because it carries over not just in the offseason, but what you're eating the night before the game and what you’re eating in the morning and the afternoon — if it's a night game — just how that it affects your performance.'

    Huddle Up: Will Cheeseheads still embrace a quarterback who shuns their namesake food? Will Rodgers' spurning of the cheese test Wisconsin's tolerance of the lactose intolerant? What next, Rodgers swears off beer? It's a developing situation in a state that proudly placed seven municipalities among the top 10 drunkest cities in America.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 6/3/16 11:06am ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said if there was a game Sunday, June 5, then he would be playing in it. Nelson will not participate in any 11 on 11 drills until training camp just to be safe while he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

    Huddle Up: Fortunately for Nelson, games that matter are three months away. Even though he's not doing much now, it sounds as if the Packers will test him fully in training camp. And once he demonstrates he's healthy, he should answer any lingering questions about his return to the upper echelon of fantasy receivers.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 6/3/16 2:45pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (foot) underwent foot surgery this week and will miss the rest of the offseason program, according to multiple sources. The Packers are hoping he'll be back next month for training camp, though, and the surgery was called 'preventative.' Green Bay has big plans for Cook in 2016 after he caught only 39 passes in 2015 with the St. Louis Rams.

    Huddle Up: Somewhat troubling news regarding the Pack's new toy and it will set him back some in learning the offense, but if the recovery goes well, he should be back in plenty of time to get acclimated during the preseason. Stay turned ...

  • Davante Adams - WR
    Posted 6/2/16 11:10am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams is looking for a rebound after a poor season in 2015. He struggled with an ankle injury suffered in Week 2 which he aggravated the following week. Adams never fully recovered until the playoffs, and then he suffered a knee injury. During the offseason he bulked up, lifting weights once his knee fully healed. His head coach has taken notice. 'He looks stronger this year than in the past and he's healthy,' head coach Mike McCarthy said.

    Huddle Up: So Adams' inability to catch the ball consistently last season stems from... an ankle injury? Adams will need to restore Aaron Rodgers' confidence in him in order to carve out a meaningful role in the Packers' receiver rotation, as Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb should both be healthy and slot ahead of Adams in the pecking order.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 6/2/16 4:08pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) did not participate in practice during organized team activities Thursday, June 2, but he did run routes on the sideline for QB Aaron Rodgers.

    Huddle Up: A number of fantasy eyes continue to stay trained on Nelson, who should be at or near full strength by the regular-season opener as he'll have had a full calendar year to recover.

  • Ty Montgomery - WR
    Posted 5/29/16 10:04pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery said he has been pain free since having surgery on his ankle, and his flexibility has been making consistent progress. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he has no 'long-term' concerns about Montgomery's ankle.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery figures to have much better health fortune this season after bring limited to six games as a rookie last year, but the return of No. 1 WR Jordy Nelson only pushes Montgomery further down the Pack's WR pecking order, and his main 2016 contribution figures to be as a return man.

    Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery said he has been pain free since having surgery on his ankle, and his flexibility has been making consistent progress. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he has no 'long-term' concerns about Montgomery's ankle.

  • Davante Adams - WR
    Posted 5/27/16 10:50am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said he wasn't proud of his performance last season, but he plans to prove to the team and to himself what he is capable of in 2016.

    Huddle Up: With Jordy Nelson presumably healthy, Adams is at best fighting for the third receiver gig in Green Bay. And his copious drops may have cost him Aaron Rodgers' confidence; he'll need to have a heck of a training camp to convince Rodgers he's worthy of targets.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 5/26/16 11:12am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy still weighs 'in the 240s,' according to a source. Lacy did P90X workouts in the offseason and turned to basketball and boxing, too. It was reported back in April that Lacy had already lost 15 to 18 pounds. Head coach Mike McCarthy characterized Lacy's condition as 'so far, so good.' 'Eddie will be fine,' McCarthy said. 'I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on.'

    Huddle Up: It was clear that Lacy's girth was a hinderance last season, so any work he's doing to get into better playing shape can only help. We'll know more when the Packers open training camp in July.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 5/25/16 10:14am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is right on schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It's still unclear if Nelson will participate in organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: It's your weekly "everything is fine, nothing to see here" update regarding Nelson. No reason to think he won't return to top-10 fantasy form unless we learn of a setback. And really, fantasy owners won't be able to judge for themselves until they see (or don't see) Nelson on the field in training camp and the preseason.

  • Clay Matthews - LB
    Posted 5/23/16 12:08pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews will return to outside linebacker in 2016.

    Huddle Up: Matthews can be more of a fantasy force from the outside, free to rush the passer and pile up sacks.

  • John Kuhn - RB
    Posted 5/12/16 10:29am ET

    Free-agent FB John Kuhn (Packers) continues to negotiate with the Green Bay Packers, who have mutual interest in him re-signing. However, there's no timetable on when a deal could get done.

    Huddle Up: Kuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhn! Fantasy owners would have no problem seeing the Packers' goal line vulture move on, though in truth Green Bay would just replace him with someone else to swipe three or four touchdowns from Eddie Lacy.

  • Jeff Janis - WR
    Posted 5/4/16 10:03am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams' roster spot is not a lock for the 2016 season, in the opinion of Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. WRs Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis and Trevor Davis are also not guaranteed roster spots.

    Huddle Up: The Packers have robust competition for their complementary receiver roles. And in the end they might just bring back James Jones anyway. There's certainly fantasy upside to be had amongst the likes of Adams, Janis, and Montgomery but also plenty of risk.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 4/19/16 10:05am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) fully participated in offseason workouts Monday, April 18, and said that his next step will be running routes. It is not known if Nelson will be able to participate in organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Looks like Nelson is on track with his recovery, though it's worth keeping an eye on as the Packers ramp up their activities. If he's running routes and participating fully once training camp comes around, he'll reclaim his spot amongst the elite fantasy wideouts.

  • Ty Montgomery - WR
    Posted 4/17/16 2:37pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) has been cleared to sprint but will be limited when the team starts their offseason workouts Monday, April 18.

    Huddle Up: The third-round pick's rookie season was limited to six games due to injury, but he showed definite flashes as a receiver and kick returner and should be even more involved his second go-around once he gets healthy.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 4/12/16 4:38pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has worked his way into better shape this offseason, and the people around Lacy believe the Packers are going to be happy with what they see when Lacy reports to the offseason program, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer. Breer said Lacy has redistributed weight from his midsection to his shoulders and arms. Lacy has slimmed down over the last two months in large part because of P90X workouts.

    Huddle Up: Lacy is coming off career lows in rushes (187), rushing yards (758) and ground TDs (3) as the team was dissatisfied with his condition and production, but it sounds like things are setting up for a bounce-back season. Stay tuned ...

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 3/24/16 10:21am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is doing well in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, and head coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson has been running.

    Huddle Up: We saw last season how critical Nelson is to the Packers' passing game, so the sooner he returns the faster Green Bay's offense can return to the fantasy playground it has been in the past.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 3/24/16 10:26pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy looks to be staying fit with his PX90 workouts this offseason. Lacy and one of his fans recently took a picture together. The fan said Lacy looked fit and like he has lost a lot of weight. The fan also said that he is 5-9, 185 pounds and that Lacy is much thinner than him.

    Huddle Up: Lacy looks to have made decent progress over the last two months, but 185 pounds? Let's not get carried away here.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 3/23/16 9:08am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has continued his PX90 workout program and the reports back to head coach Mike McCarthy have been good so far. McCarthy said he hasn't met with Lacy since the end of the season, but new running backs coach Ben Sirmans has been keeping in regular contact with Lacy while updating McCarthy. Lacy was criticized by McCarthy after the regular season for not being in good shape, but McCarthy said Lacy is looking good now and that there will be a new Lacy when players return in mid-April if he can stay the course.

    Huddle Up: Anyone else smell a reality show or at least a PX90 infomercial in Lacy's future? A sleeker Lacy bodes well for his fantasy prospects, though Aaron Rodgers is still inclined to call his own number at the stripe as opposed to leaning on Lacy.
