Brett Hundley - QBPosted 9/4/15 10:01am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley completed 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 236 and four touchdowns in a 38-10 preseason win over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Looks like the Packers have themselves another quality quarterback they can develop and turn into high draft picks--or at least a guy they can count on if something happens to Aaron Rodgers.
Richard Rodgers - TEPosted 9/3/15 8:40am ET
Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers is expected to see more opportunities in the passing game with WR Jordy Nelson (knee) done for the season.
Huddle Up: Aaron Rodgers' favorite receiver is whoever is open, and he sees the entire field as well as any quarterback. So it's only logical that rather than depend on Davante Adams to pick up the entire slack left by Nelson's absence the Packers will spread the wealth. As a result, Richard Rodgers' fantasy value is on the upswing.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/3/15 8:40am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy figures to see more responsibilities in the passing game with the loss of WR Jordy Nelson (knee) for the season.
Huddle Up: Makes sense that Aaron Rodgers would spread the ball around without his top receiver available--as well as getting the ball to Lacy in the open field.
Clay Matthews - LBPosted 9/2/15 2:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (knee, elbow) is practicing this week with expectations of playing in the final preseason game and Week 1.
Huddle Up: It would be slightly shocking to see Matthews running around out there in the final preseason game, but if he does play and gets through the game OK, you can be sure he'll be out there Week 1 against the Bears.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/2/15 8:43pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) said he'd be comfortable starting in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears even if he doesn't practice next week. However, wide receivers coach Alex Van Pelt would like to see Cobb play before the season opener. Van Pelt said it's realistic for Cobb to return before Week 1, and he has no doubts that Cobb could play at a high level against the Bears even without practice.
Huddle Up: Cobb and Aaron Rodgers have been playing for so long, they can probably roll out of bed and be on the same page. With Jordy Nelson out for the year if Cobb is healthy, he'll play.
Jeff Janis - WRPosted 9/2/15 11:32pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis is in the running for the No. 3 receiver job with WR Ty Montgomery, but beat writer Rob Reischel notes that Janis hasn't won over QB Aaron Rodgers yet. 'Jeff will have some great days and some days where mentally he's making too many mistakes,' Rodgers said. 'The talent and athleticism are there. We just need to see from all those guys battling for those two spots just some more consistency.'
Huddle Up: Inconsistency has been a problem for Janis but he's showed some big play potential in the preseason. Janis is battling with Ty Montgomery for the Packers' No. 3 job. Both players are guys to monitor throughout the season.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 9/2/15 11:32pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery appears to have the upper hand in the race for the No. 3 receiver job behind WRs Randall Cobb and Davante Adams with WR Jordy Nelson (knee) gone for the season.
Huddle Up: Both Montgomery and Janis will likely see time in the role but right now Montgomery appears to have a slight lead. Montgomery is a player to watch in the Packers' offense with Jordy Nelson out for the year.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 9/1/15 4:22pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery is dealing with hamstring tightness following practice Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Huddle Up: WR injuries seem to be hitting teams in waves this preseason, and lately it's been the Packers' turn. This is a tame injury, though, compared to some of the others, and the rookie third-rounder will have a week and a half to get ready for the regular-season opener.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/1/15 10:04pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb thinks his sprained right shoulder will be good to go to play in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears in 12 days. 'I don't plan on missing a game,' Cobb said. 'I'm doing everything in my power to get back before then.' However, there remains swelling in his shoulder, but he said he's doing much better than when he was injured in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday, Aug. 29. Cobb did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 1, but watched from the sidelines.
Huddle Up: Overly optimistic or not, Cobb's shoulder sounds like it won't be too much of a factor, and he still should be treated as a WR1 in all upcoming fantasy drafts.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 8/30/15 11:57pm ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) has been diagnosed with an AC joint sprain, after undergoing further tests Sunday, Aug. 30, according to a source. He suffered the injury after being driven into the turf on a tackle in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday, Aug. 29.
Huddle Up: The Packers remain insistent that Cobb's injury is nothing more than a shoulder sprain, and now the focus becomes whether the wideout can heal enough to be ready for the regular-season opener in two weeks. And it promises to be a long two weeks for Cobb's fantasy owners.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 8/29/15 10:47pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) exited a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29, and was taken to the locker room with a shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: The extent of the injury isn't known yet but it was reported that it's not a broken collarbone. This is obviously devastating news for a team that lost Jordy Nelson for the season just last week. Stay tuned for further updates on Cobb's status in the next 24 hours. If he's out for an extended period of time, Davante Adams will become the Packers' No. 1 receiver.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/27/15 10:03pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and the rest of Green Bay's starters will not play Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to QB Matt Blanchard.
Huddle Up: When you've just lost a Jordy Nelson to a preseason ACL tear, this is one way to respond.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/26/15 8:01pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could see limited snaps during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and there is a chance he could sit out the entire game.
Huddle Up: The Packers could very well decide to play it safe with Rodgers after last week's horror show. Rodgers ill be fine for the season opener against Chicago.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 8/25/15 10:13am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery will be the slot receiver in practice this week with WR Jeff Janis, WR Myles White, WR Larry Pinkard, WR Ed Williams and WR Jared Abbrederis competing for a spot after him.
Huddle Up: Montgomery has been creating buzz in training camp, and with Jordy Nelson out there's an opening at WR3 in Green Bay. Janis was the presumed leader, but heading into the all-important third preseason game it looks as if Montgomery will get first shot at the gig.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 8/25/15 7:57pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels no pressure to replace WR Jordy Nelson (knee) as the team's No. 1 receiver this year now that Nelson is lost for the season. 'I don't think that is an issue,' Cobb said. 'I pressed last year in the beginning of the season, and I'm not going to do that again. There's no need for that. Aaron's going to do his job, he's going to get us the ball. It's my job when I get those opportunities to make things happen.' Cobb had 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014, and his role might not change drastically with Nelson out. Cobb has typically been a slot receiver for Green Bay, while Nelson has played on the outside.
Huddle Up: Cobb finished only behind Nelson with a career-high 127 targets last season and could set another career mark this season, but WRs Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis and TE Richard Rodgers -- and possibly all four will see the largest upticks in snaps and looks.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/24/15 1:44pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hand, wrist) suffered injuries to his right hand and wrist during the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, and did not return. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers could have continued playing if it was a regular season game.
Huddle Up: It was a tough day for the Packers after losing Jordy Nelson for the season but the good news is Rodgers will be fine for the season opener against the Bears. Fantasy owners don't have to worry about him.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 8/24/15 5:54pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is officially out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: As expected, Nelson is out for the season with a torn ACL. Davante Adams will now see a big increase in targets, while Jeff Janis' playing time will also increase. Adams' ADP is up to Round 6 and Janis is going in the later rounds.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/24/15 11:13pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' passer rating when targeting WR Jordy Nelson in the last four seasons has been 150.2, 130.3, 111.6 and 128.2, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Some impressive numbers right there, but Rodgers is still great enough -- and still has better-than-average talent to throw to -- that he'll still challenge for top-fantasy-QB honors.
Clay Matthews - LBPosted 8/23/15 12:55pm ET
Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (elbow, knee) will not play in the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: It's been a slow August for the Packers' All-Pro as he's been limited in practices and also sat out the exhibition opener. He played his first full season last year since his rookie season of 2009, but he missed a combined nine games in the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 8/23/15 3:39pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) suffered a torn ACL after going down on the opening drive of the team's preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23 in Pittsburgh, according to a report by NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Nelson also will undergo an MRI which is expected to confirm the results.
Huddle Up: Crushing news for Cheesehead Nation and the fantasy owners of the No. 1 WR, who owned the 10th-highest ADP among wideouts. It's certainly not the way they wanted it to happen, but this increases the fantasy stock of Randall Cobb and, in particular, second-year player Davante Adams. Jeff Janis and third-round pick Ty Montgomery also should see more targets.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 8/20/15 7:58pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams has performed well during training camp and is expected to make an impact this season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Playing in back of fantasy studs Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, the second-year wideout is as close to a must-own WR handcuff as there is in the league. That aside, the Packers use three-WR sets a good deal so Adams will see his fair share of targets as well.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/12/15 1:30am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers expects to play at least a little bit Thursday, Aug. 13, against the New England Patriots. Rodgers said he doesn't believe the No. 1 offense needs a whole lot of in-game work to get ready for the regular season.
Huddle Up: You might think that the Pack wouldn't risk playing Rodgers much at all this preseason after he hobbled through much of the postseason a year ago with a calf issue, and you can be assured the loudest cheers will be reserved for when the team, Pack Nation and Rodgers' fantasy owners see the QB depart injury-free and backups Scott Tolzien, Matt Blanchard or rookie Brett Hundley entering the exhibitions.
Clay Matthews - LBPosted 8/7/15 5:53pm ET
Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews said he is not worried about his knee injury and is sitting out so he does not do any more damage to the knee. He is not expected to practice Saturday, Aug. 8, but believes he has a chance to play in the preseason game against the New England Patriots next week.
Huddle Up: Matthews, who turns 30 next year, played a full season a year ago but missed a combined nine games over the previous two seasons due to various ailments. He's definitely still performing at a high level -- i.e. his team-high 11 sacks to go along with 71 total tackles and nine passes defensed last season -- but age might be starting to creep up on the five-time Pro Bowler.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 8/5/15 12:26am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy left practice Tuesday, Aug. 4, with a sore foot. RB James Starks finished out practice with the top unit. No indication was given as to which foot was sore and forced Lacy from workouts.
Huddle Up: The Pack has been conscious about overworking Lacy, and this scare will surely reinforce that. The team isn't scheduled to practice Wednesday with only meetings on tap, so let's see what the prognosis is Thursday.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 8/5/15 11:14pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams has had a quiet start to training camp, and WR Ty Montgomery has been more of a playmaker early in camp.
Huddle Up: Don't read anything into these reports. The problem with training camps in 2015 is there is way too much information going around. These are practices and it could be the coaching staff just wants to get a look at Montgomery. We've seen Adams in game action last year as a rookie and showed the sky is the limit with him. Ty Montgomery is no challenge at all for the No. 3 receiver job.
Andrew Quarless - TEPosted 7/30/15 10:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless has not reported to training camp, and the Packers still don't know when he will do so. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Quarless is dealing with a difficult family situation and that he'll be gone as long as he needs to be. Quarless was arrested and charged earlier this month for firing a gun, but that seems to be unrelated to his current situation.
Huddle Up: In meantime, the fantasy prospects of second-year TE Richard Rodgers -- who had 25 catches for 273 yards and three TDs as a rookie, including the playoffs -- are looking better and better.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 7/29/15 6:34pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be limited during training camp even though he has dealt with injuries over the last few seasons, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'We're not counting throws all the time, and it's not a concern as it will be when he's later in his career,' McCarthy said. 'I mean, he's still very physically fit and so I don't feel like I need to protect him because of any type of elbow or shoulder issue, thing like that. But we just work through it, communicate and see where he's at every day.' McCarthy said Rodgers' playing time in the preseason will not change.
Huddle Up: Rodgers' issue last season was a late-year calf strain which he didn't affect fantasy much as he still finished as the No. 2 QB overall. He's right back up there with Andrew Luck again this season, with those two comprising the top tier of QBs on many preseason-projection lists.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 7/26/15 1:25pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ranked fifth in yards after contact last year, and he plays 'like he weighs 300 pounds,' according to an NFC North personnel member.
Huddle Up: Lacy had 288 touches last season -- down from 319 in his rookie campaign -- but his yards from scrimmage (1,566) and total TDs (13) both saw increases. And with the current uncertainty at the top of the first round, Lacy is right in the No. 1 overall pick mix, along with Le'Veon Bell, Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 7/21/15 10:48pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy said he doesn't set personal goals. Lacy said he focuses on whatever it takes to put the team in a position to win.
Huddle Up: Lacy overcame a slow start to finish tied for fifth among all fantasy RBs last season with 235 points and is in the wide-open, No. 1 overall pick discussion this summer.
Andrew Quarless - TEPosted 7/14/15 10:44pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless probably won't be imprisoned since he was charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony. Quarless was arrested for discharging a firearm in public, but he said it was an act caused by drunken stupidity, not violence.
Huddle Up: Something to keep on as Quarless still could face a suspension from the NFL, likely meaning second-year TE Richard Rodgers would become that much more attractive.
