Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/16/18 7:08pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' contract extension will likely be a priority this offseason, according to Pete Dougherty of USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin, and Dougherty believes Rodgers will sign a record-setting deal.
Huddle Up: Rodgers still has a couple of years remaining on his current deal, but it's no surprise that the Packers would want to lock up their franchise quarterback. He'll be the top quarterback on the draft board in 2018.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 2/14/18 7:25am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery could move back to wide receiver, according to beat writer Rob Demovsky.
Huddle Up: Montgomery didn't hold up physically, and he might be the third running back on the roster now. His fantasy value is limited, but it would be higher as a running back.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 2/11/18 1:44pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones will work on strengthening his legs this offseason so he can hopefully avoid medial collateral ligament tears, according to running backs coach Ben Sirmans.
Huddle Up: Jones had a few good games this season but lost his job and could be the No. 3 running back in 2018. Owners should keep an eye on his situation next season because he could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he has a solid role.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/5/18 10:14pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) said he's had no limitations on his offseason workouts that he participates in on his own and that he'll be full go by the time the team returns for their offseason program in mid-April. 'I'm back into everything I like to do in the offseason with my training, and I'll be ready to go when we're back in April,' Rodgers said. He also mentioned that he's 'feeling great.'
Huddle Up: This news indicates Rodgers is right on schedule and should be 100 percent in time for the beginning of the season next year. He'll be a QB1 entering the 2018 campaign, with the potential to lead all players at his position in fantasy points.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/3/18 8:04pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he believes he has many good years left in him, but he acknowledged that he could finish his career with a different team. 'I think you have to be humble enough to realize if it could happen to Brett (Favre), it can happen to you,' Rodgers said.
Huddle Up: Green Bay fans shouldn't panic. Rodgers has a couple of years left on his current deal, and he is likely to remain a Packer, and a high-end QB1 for that matter, for the foreseeable future.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/1/18 7:17am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) said his collarbone is fine Thursday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Now 34, Rodgers remains one of the best options at quarterback in fantasy. He'll have some questions to answer after the collarbone injury, though, and he showed some rust in his one-game return late in the season.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 1/23/18 12:05pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is focusing on improving his explosiveness this offseason. Williams wants to have quicker feet, more speed and to make sure his knees are up. He added that he'll be working on his lateral movements and speed in order to make sure his knees are up and that his lower body is stronger.
Huddle Up: Williams came on late in his first professional football campaign. Unfortunately, he'll be competing with fellow sophomore running back Aaron Jones, so his fantasy ceiling isn't as high as it could be. For now, view him as a flex as a better fit in standard leagues.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 1/22/18 10:34pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams conceded that in his exit interviews with head coach Mike McCarthy and running backs coach Ben Sirmans, 'We were just in agreement that I've got to get my feet quicker and just get a little more speed happening and make sure that my knees are up. So, I'm just going to be working on my lateral movements, speed, make sure I get my knees up, make sure my lower body's a lot stronger.'
Huddle Up: Williams flashed some interesting potential in his rookie season, ultimately leading the team in rushing with 556 yards while also adding four touchdowns. However, he needed 153 rush attempts to garner that yardage -- good for just 3.6 yards per carry -- so it won't be an easy path to reclaim the starting job with Ty Montgomery (wrist) and Aaron Jones (knee) returning to full health. Whoever is Green Bay's starting running back going into next year will hold notable value considering Aaron Rodgers will be healthy to begin the campaign.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/30/17 7:00pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson could be in danger of having to take a pay cut or being released this offseason, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: The Packers have a lot of money tied up in the receiver position following Davante Adams' new deal, and Nelson is 32. As productive as he has been in recent years, his value would plummet if he is separated from Aaron Rodgers.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 12/30/17 7:21pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is heading into the final year of his four-year, $40 million deal, and Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com believes Cobb could be asked to take a pay cut or could be released this offseason.
Huddle Up: Demovsky also noted that Jordy Nelson could be headed for a similar fate, so if Nelson leaves, Cobb could enjoy a nice boost in value if he sticks around. If Cobb is separated from Aaron Rodgers, his value would depend heavily on where he lands.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 12/29/17 4:52pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams signed a four-year contract extension with the Packers Friday, Dec. 29, worth $58.75 million, according to a source. The deal includes $32 million in guaranteed money and an $18 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Adams has been ruled out for Week 17, so he finishes this season with 74 receptions, 885 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has recorded 24 touchdowns over the last two seasons and has a good chance to improve on his stats next season as long as Aaron Rodgers can stay healthy. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver in drafts next season.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/28/17 11:24am ET
Green Bay Packers WRs Jordy Nelson (shoulder) and Davante Adams (concussion) were sidelined during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: It would be a surprise to see either Nelson or Adams play in the Packers' final game of the season. As far as next year is concerned, Nelson is lined up to be a nice value pick in fantasy drafts assuming he and Aaron Rodgers are both healthy. Adams, meanwhile, possesses low-end WR1to high-end WR2 potential.
Geronimo Allison - WRPosted 12/28/17 3:23pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (illness) missed practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Typically, Allison isn't a name you'd consider in fantasy leagues but with Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams likely to miss Sunday's season finale, the 23-year-old will be in a position to maybe contribute something meaningful if he suits up. Allison had some solid showings near the end of his rookie season a year ago in extended playing time, though Aaron Rodgers probably had a lot to do with that as well.
Richard Rodgers - TEPosted 12/28/17 3:32pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers (shoulder) did not participate in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is coming off by far his best game of the season, when he hauled in all four of his targets for 77 yards and his first touchdown of the campaign. However, despite the rare outburst, Rodgers is just a TE2 for the deepest of formats if he plays. Previously, he hadn't registered more than one catch in a game since Week 1, plus it's Brett Hundley under center.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 12/28/17 3:31pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) did not participate in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: With nothing to play for, the Packers might opt to hold Jones out, especially if he's not able to make it onto the practice field before the weekend. Even if he is active on Sunday, he'd be a very weak play, as Jamaal Williams is expected to dominate the work in the backfield no matter what.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/27/17 10:27am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (shoulder) will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 27, and head coach Mike McCarthy admitted it will be 'tough' for Nelson to play in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Nelson's season went into the tank at the same time Aaron Rodgers was injured in Week 6, as backup quarterback Brett Hundley only seemed to have eyes for Davante Adams. It seems likely Nelson's stock will take a big hit in fantasy drafts next summer as owners will likely shy away from him due to his dismal second half and age (he will turn 33 in May). Nevertheless, few receivers in recent memory have shown a better knack for the end zone than Nelson when he gets to play with Rodgers.
Devante Mays - RBPosted 12/27/17 2:41pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Devante Mays could see some carries in the Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Mays might be thrust into duty as a backup to Jamaal Williams, as it appears highly unlikely Aaron Jones (knee) will be able to play in the finale. Mays might be worth a look as a punt DFS option, but he isn't someone to rely upon in seasonal formats.
Richard Rodgers - TEPosted 12/27/17 2:41pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is nothing more than a TE2 in most fantasy formats for the regular season finale in Detroit with Brett Hundley back under center in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers (collarbone).
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 12/27/17 2:42pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams is likely to handle a bulk of the workload in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions with RB Aaron Jones (knee) unlikely to play.
Huddle Up: Williams should be a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option for leagues deciding their league champion in the final weekend, while Devante Mays might see snaps as his backup.
Richard Rodgers - TEPosted 12/25/17 7:43pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers (shoulder) is still being evaluated for the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 16, head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: Rodgers had such nice rapport in the return of Aaron Rodgers in Week 15, but he hasn't really connected as well with backup Brett Hundley. He isn't someone to rely upon for fantasy, even if Richard Rodgers is cleared for Week 17. If he is out it would be Lance Kendricks holding down the fort.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/25/17 7:42pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday, Dec. 25, that the receiver is still being evaluated.
Huddle Up: Nelson has had a disappointing season, and he hasn't jelled very well with Brett Hundley when the two have worked together. Even if he can play he should be treated more as a WR4 or flex fantasy option as he finishes up a mediocre campaign.
Brett Hundley - QBPosted 12/25/17 7:40pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley will remain the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 17 against the Detroit Lions. 'I thought he competed at a very high level,' head coach Mike McCarthy said about Hundley's performance in Week 16. He said coaches assigned seven dropped passes after watching film.
Huddle Up: Hundley set an NFL record for most pass attempts at home in a season without a touchdown, but Joe Callahan will continue to hold the clipboard in the finale. Still, Hundley isn't someone to bother with in fantasy football.
Richard Rodgers - TEPosted 12/23/17 6:42pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers (shoulder) exited after suffering a shoulder injury against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16, and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Even if Rodgers can't return, it won't be a big blow for fantasy owners. Once Aaron Rodgers was placed on IR, any chance Rodgers had of being a useful contributor over the final two weeks disappeared.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 12/23/17 6:47pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (ankle) suffered an ankle injury against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16 and is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Jamaal Williams has already been serving as the lead back, and if Jones can't return, Williams should be in line for almost all the snaps the rest of the way against the Vikings and potentially in Week 17.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/23/17 7:03pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (arm) suffered a left arm injury while attempting a diving catch against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Nelson has been useless when Brett Hundley has been the quarterback, so even if he is able to return, he won't be helping fantasy owners until next season anyway.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/23/17 7:24pm ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (arm) won't return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16 after suffering an arm injury.
Huddle Up: Feel free to keep an eye on Nelson's status for the season finale, but given his complete lack of production with Brett Hundley under center, you shouldn't plan on using him in any fantasy format.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 12/23/17 7:37pm ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) won't return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16 after suffering a knee injury.
Huddle Up: Jamaal Williams should have the backfield all to himself for the remainder of the game, and if Jones can't play in the finale, Williams should be a solid flex play against the Detroit Lions.
Brett Hundley - QBPosted 12/23/17 9:11pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley completed 17 of his 40 pass attempts for 130 yards and two interceptions in a 16-0 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16. He also ran five times for 48 yards.
Huddle Up: Hundley continued his awful play at home, and he now has zero touchdowns to seven interceptions. Green Bay does go on the road to face the Detroit Lions in the finale, but Hundley would still be a total shot-in-the-dark streaming option.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 12/23/17 9:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb caught four passes on seven targets for 22 yards in a 16-0 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16.
Huddle Up: What a difference a quarterback makes. Cobb caught seven passes for 84 yards and a score with Aaron Rodgers under center last week. With Brett Hundley starting, Cobb couldn't manage a decent line despite Davante Adams being out and Jordy Nelson departing with an injury. You can avoid Cobb in the season finale.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 12/23/17 9:21pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 15 times for 58 yards in a 16-0 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Williams continues to serve as the lead back, but his value is capped by the inconsistent play of Brett Hundley and the offense as a whole. He receives enough touches to be used as a flex play, but he will need to find the end zone to creep into RB2 territory.
