Randall Cobb - WRPosted 6/14/19 11:27am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Randall Cobb has reportedly formed 'a fast connection' with QB Dak Prescott, and there is 'no question' Cobb will be a 'huge addition to the offense' in 2019.
Huddle Up: Given how frequently Cole Beasley was utilized in recent years even when he wasn't the primary option - albeit under former offensive coordinator Scott Linehan - it's that a more dynamic talent like Cobb has caught his quarterback's eye. With that said, it seems unlikely Cobb will produce consistently enough in fantasy as he fights for looks with Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Jason Witten and Ezekiel Elliott.
Geronimo Allison - WRPosted 6/13/19 6:55pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison is 'likely slated as the slot man' in three-receiver sets, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Allison had a productive start to last season before suffering an injury, and while Marquez Valdes-Scantling may have the inside track on the No. 2 receiver job, the Green Bay passing attack could support three viable fantasy options. Consider Allison a WR4 with upside.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WRPosted 6/13/19 6:41pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been lining up across from WR Davante Adams in all packages during minicamp.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Valdes-Scantling has the inside track to the No. 2 receiver job. It remains to be seen if he will take the role and run with it, but the upside that comes with being one of Aaron Rodgers' top targets makes him a WR4 candidate.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WRPosted 6/12/19 6:29pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling feels confident he'll flourish in the team's new offense. 'It's built for my kind of player. I'm a vertical guy, I can stretch the field,' Valdes-Scantling said.
Huddle Up: Davante Adams is the go-to receiver, but there is plenty of opportunity for Valdes-Scantling to shine with Randall Cobb having moved on. His biggest challenger for targets will be Geronimo Allison, Equanimeous St. Brown and Trevor Davis. Whomever starts opposite Adams will be worth of WR4 or flex fantasy status.
Jake Kumerow - WRPosted 6/12/19 11:14pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow caught two touchdowns during minicamp practice Tuesday, June 11, and earned a lot of praise from QB Aaron Rodgers, who talked about Kumerow's intelligence and consistency being in the right spots. Rodgers concluded by saying he was a 'big fan' of Kumerow.
Huddle Up: You have to take everything with a grain of salt during the offseason, but things are wide open outside of Davante Adams in Green Bay. While we've heard good things about Marquez Valdes- Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown (and even Trevor Davis), Kumerow was a favorite of No. 12 last preseason before an injury shelved him for much of 2018. We'll learn more once the preseason arrives, but Kumerow is a name to keep tabs on.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 6/6/19 12:17pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams finished second in the league behind Julio Jones (170) with 169 targets last season. If QB Aaron Rodgers has his way in 2019, Adams will be even more involved. 'I'd like to throw to Davante more. He's that open. We've got to keep finding ways to get him the ball. 'I think Marquez (Valdes-Scantling) has had a fantastic spring and really stepped up as a guy who can be an every-down player, and then I expect a big bounce-back year from Jimmy (Graham). He's healthy, he's feeling good. This offense I think fits him and his body type, but I'm not going to shy away from throwing the ball to Davante,' Rodgers told ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Huddle Up: No one is going to fault Adams getting more looks, especially after he set career highs across the board with 111 catches, 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2018. He's finished with double-digit touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and is obviously the favorite target of the best quarterback in the game. If he can stay healthy, there's no reason why he can't repeat or exceed what he did last year in what should be a more creative offense under first-year coach Matt LaFleur.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 6/2/19 7:50pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham said he is motivated to put his struggles from last year behind him. 'I know the player that I am, and I know I still have juice,' Graham said. 'Scoring in the red zone and being that big threat on third down. I mean, I've got to get back to that.'
Huddle Up: Graham's first season in Green Bay was a big disappointment, but a new head coach and a new offense could provide a needed spark. Still, he should be viewed as a low-end TE1, at best, after last season.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 4/11/19 9:54am ET
Free-agent RB Ty Montgomery (Ravens) will visit the Miami Dolphins on Friday, April 12.
Huddle Up: Montgomery totaled 423 scrimmage yards and a TD on 66 touches in 13 combined games with the Packers and Ravens last season, and looks to be nothing more than an end-of-the-bench fantasy RB flyer -- regardless of his new locale -- unless circumstances change measurably.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 4/11/19 2:27pm ET
Free-agent RB Ty Montgomery (Ravens) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New York Jets Thursday, April 11, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Montgomery likely will serve as the No. 2 or No. 3 running back for the Jets and may only receive a handful of touches each game. He likely will be avoided in most fantasy drafts.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 4/10/19 7:11pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said he hopes to receive some playing time at slot receiver under head coach Matt LaFleur because it could create some favorable matchups in the passing game for the team.
Huddle Up: Adams is one of the better receivers in the NFL and could improve on his stats in 2019 if he is not covered by the opponent's top cornerback as a slot receiver. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues next season.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 4/9/19 9:43am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told a Milwaukee radio station Monday, April 8, that he suffered a a tibial-plateau fracture and an MCL sprain in Week 1 last season.
Huddle Up: Rodgers wound up playing through the issue and didn't miss a start, but he was clearly bothered by the injury for the first half of the season and finished with a full-season personal-low 25 TD passes. In any case, Rodgers is due some better health fortune and a return to top-three fantasy QB status is certainly on the table with a new coach/fresh start also looming for the veteran QB this season.
Geronimo Allison - WRPosted 3/28/19 12:25pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, hamstring, adductor) said he is mentally and physically strong and feels good after missing 11 games last season. 'I think I'm making a good comeback and I feel confident in myself.'
Huddle Up: As it stands, Allison figures to be the Packers' No. 1 wide receiver with Randall Cobb out of the picture, although second-year wide receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown are chomping at the bit to break out. Nonetheless, Allison is in the WR3 conversation if he can avoid any setbacks.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 3/19/19 2:48pm ET
Free-agent WR Randall Cobb (Packers) signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, March 19.
Huddle Up: Cobb is aging and has dealt with more than his fair share of injuries throughout his career, but this is a good get for the Cowboys. Cobb immediately replaces Cole Beasley in the slot and gives Dak Prescott another trusted safety valve. His best years may be behind him, but drafting Cobb as a PPR WR3 won't be frowned at.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 3/18/19 7:06am ET
Free-agent WR Randall Cobb (Packers) is visiting the Dallas Cowboys Monday, March 18.
Huddle Up: It's pretty clear what Cobb is at this point, and it's not the 12-touchdown breakout campaign he had in 2014. He has done very little since then and is oft-injured. However, he can still be a factor in fantasy as a WR5.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 3/7/19 6:56pm ET
Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb was pursued by the New England Patriots last season, according to Jay Glazer of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: With his ability to work out of the slot and make plays after the catch, Cobb does seem to fit the mold of a New England wide receiver. However, he has dealt with injuries in recent years, and even if he lands in New England, he'd only be a late-round lottery ticket.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 2/27/19 11:22am ET
Green Bay Packers RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are expected to be utilized in a committee approach, according to new head coach Matt LaFleur. LaFleur said the running back position is one of the more violent positions in the league considering the punishment absorbed.
Huddle Up: This isn't good news for Jones, who has clearly been the most successful running back for the Packers of late. Williams can hold his own and isn't a pushover by any means, but a committee stunts Jones' fantasy ceiling to be sure. Heading into 2019, Jones can be drafted as an RB2 and Williams as an RB3 and/or handcuff to Jones.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 2/27/19 6:33pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones is capable of being an every-down back if he is able to improve his conditioning, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: Jones is expected to share playing time with Jamaal Williams this season, which likely will hurt his fantasy value. He can be considered a No. 3 running back in some leagues but likely will not be a weekly starting option.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 2/27/19 10:54pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham will be brought back in 2019. General manager Brian Gutekunst said Wednesday, Feb. 28 that he felt Graham had a productive year in 2018, and he is looking forward to what the veteran will do in 2019.
Huddle Up: Graham registered 55 catches and 636 yards with two scores over 16 games. His scores were way down from the 10 he posted in 2017. His average yards per catch (11.6) were up from a career-low 9.1 yards per reception in 2017, too. However, his fantasy value is at an all-time low, and he is now a borderline TE1/TE2 in most fantasy formats.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/24/19 11:37am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will have a new coach for the first time since 2006, and Packers RB Aaron Jones is fully confident in Rodgers' ability to establish a good working relationship with head coach Matt LaFleur. 'I don't think Aaron will have a problem,' Jones said recently on NFL Network. 'He'll pick it up very quickly. He's coachable, and he wants to win, and he's a team player, and he's a leader, so we're all going to get behind our leader and we're going to be ready to go this year.'
Huddle Up: For whatever reason, Rodgers and the offense didn't seem to click during the last few seasons of the Mike McCarthy coaching era, and the QB finished 2018 with his lowest full or near-full-season TD pass total (25) of his career. Rodgers' fantasy stock as taken a minor ding, but he remains a solid QB1 consideration.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/19/19 12:00am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be asked to run a dramatically different offense than the one he has operated for most of his career, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. 'When you take a guy like Aaron Rodgers, who is a very good football player, I mean, he's kind of one of those guys where you can kind of pretty much do a lot of everything. I think a lot of it is going to carry over. I think some of the language will be different but it's going to be a lot of the same premises for him,' Hackett told PackersNews.com.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is unlikely to be the overall QB1 in drafts this summer following the emergence of Patrick Mahomes, but he'll come off the board shortly thereafter as the QB2 or QB3. It will also be interesting to see how receptive the 35-year-old will be to the schemes of new head coach Matt LaFleur and Hackett, although it's hard to imagine he'll drop off considering how vanilla Mike McCarthy had become with his play-calling in recent years.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 2/6/19 10:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb should not be re-signed, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who believes Cobb's size and injury history are reasons the team should move on.
Huddle Up: Cobb is coming off a disappointing, injury-filled season, and the team showed last year with Jordy Nelson that they aren't afraid to move on from a receiver no matter what his relationship is with Aaron Rodgers. Despite his recent struggles, Cobb is sure to have a market and could be worth a late-round roll of the dice in the right situation.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/4/19 10:12am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is expected to be able to fully participate in the team's offseason program and will not require surgery on the left knee that hindered him throughout various points of the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: Rodgers, who also has experienced no setbacks from the concussion he suffered in the regular-season finale, told the NFL Network his body feels "really good," and ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the 35-year-old quarterback will make his annual appearance in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week. The Packers can begin their offseason program on April 1. Rodgers figures to be the second or third quarterback to come off fantasy draft boards this summer.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/3/19 5:30pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion, knee) said that he has recovered from the concussion he suffered at the end of the season and has decided not to undergo knee surgery this offseason.
Huddle Up: Rodgers had a down year by his standards, but he still finished with 25 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions. He is no longer the No. 1 fantasy quarterback, but he should still be a reliable QB1 in 2019.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 2/1/19 9:43am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones led the league with his average of 5.5 rushing yards per attempt during the regular season. 'I've always felt like I've belonged in the conversation as one of the top backs,' Jones said Friday, Feb. 1, in an interview with NFL Network.
Huddle Up: Due to suspension and injury, Jones was limited to 12 games played, but he found his way into the end zone in seven of them and displayed the big-play ability that the Packers need to complement Aaron Rodgers. He's certainly on the high-end RB2 radar for next season.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/29/19 12:11pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham is expected to stay in Green Bay in 2019, according to a source. He is due a $5 million roster bonus by March 15. It was previously reported that the Packers could release Graham to save the money.
Huddle Up: It was a relatively frustrating year for the Packers, and Graham was part of that frustration. After scoring 10 times in 2017, he found the end zone only twice last season. Despite that, he finished as the TE12 in PPR scoring. He can be drafted as a No. 1 fantasy tight end as he looks for a rebound campaign.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/24/19 10:01pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham could be released during the offseason, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, a move that would save the team $5.3 million in cap space.
Huddle Up: Graham finished second on the team in both receptions (55) and receiving yards (636), but he was a massive disappointment in the red zone where he accounted for just two touchdowns. If head coach Matt LaFleur believes Graham can rebound in the new offense he could be back, but otherwise the team may overhaul the position entirely.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/30/18 10:40am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (head) left the Week 17 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Rodgers is able to return to the game. Rodgers posted solid numbers this season and will be working with a new offensive coordinator next season. He should be seen as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all drafts next season.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/30/18 12:27pm ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Week 17 game and has been ruled out.
Huddle Up: Rodgers will have plenty of time to recover from the concussion and should be ready for offseason workouts. He will be working with a new offensive scheme next season but should still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 12/30/18 2:40pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling posted three grabs for a game-best 43 yards on eight targets in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, working most of the game with backup QB DeShone Kizer.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling ended up with 38 catches, 581 yards and two touchdowns, not a bad rookie season. He appears to be a player with a bright future heading into 2019, perhaps competing for the No. 2 job behind Davante Adams. MVS is one to watch for fantasy purposes as a sleeper.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 12/30/18 2:37pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams ran eight times for just four yards in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions while adding three grabs for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Williams was getting a look as the primary back, but the team lost Aaron Rodgers (concussion) early and the offense was disjointed the rest of the afternoon. He could be back in 2019, but as long as Aaron Jones is around Williams is second fiddle.
