Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 4/17/18 6:21am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 'frustrated and emotional' about being completely cut out of discussions that resulted in departures of WR Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt, according to sources. It is a factor in his thought process when it comes to his contract extension.
Huddle Up: Rodgers just turned 34, and he looked great before the collarbone injury derailed him last year. He should be one of the top quarterback options again this season, and the chip on his shoulder could be beneficial to fantasy owners.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 4/12/18 6:30am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery is bigger and stronger, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Montgomery said he's focused on staying healthy this season.
Huddle Up: Montgomery is in a make-it-or-break-it year, and he'll have to share the load with Aaron Jones. He'll have some RB5 luster, and if he stays healthy, he could provide bang for that buck.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/15/18 8:47am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) is being sought to sign by the Oakland Raiders after a positive visit. The team would release WR Michael Crabtree if a deal is done.
Huddle Up: Nelson doesn't have the WR1 clout anymore, but he can be a good WR2 in PPR formats.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/15/18 11:20am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) is not a done deal for the Oakland Raiders. The New Orleans Saints are pushing hard for Nelson and the Seattle Seahawks also remain interested.
Huddle Up: Nelson is now one of the most popular names in free agency and is obviously in high demand. He has a lost a step or two with injury and age, but his size and speed make him a valuable asset in any offense. He'll be a solid fit in any of those offenses and can be drafted as a WR3 if he's healthy.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/15/18 1:08pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Thursday, March 15, worth $15 million. The deal includes $13 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Nelson should be one of the starting receivers for the Raiders in 2018 after they released Michael Crabtree. He is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but should still be a reliable fantasy receiver. Owners in most leagues should consider Nelson as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/14/18 9:27am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.
Huddle Up: He's a very good WR2 to target in his age-33 season.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/14/18 9:19am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.
Huddle Up: He'll be 33 this season and no longer has the WR1 clout, but he can be a very good WR2 in fantasy.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/13/18 1:29pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson was released Tuesday, March 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Nelson is coming off a disappointing 2017 season when he posted only 482 receiving yards but did have six touchdowns. Nelson appears to be slowing down at bit but should receive interest from multiple teams this offseason. He could be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues depending on his new team.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/13/18 3:02pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) plans to continue his playing career after being released by the Green Bay Packers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Nelson may not be a No. 1 receiver at this point but should receive interest from teams during free agency. He has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his new role.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/13/18 6:52pm ET
Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday, March 14, a source said.
Huddle Up: The Raiders already have Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, but Nelson would be a nice complementary receiver. He is no longer a No. 1 receiver at this juncture of his career, but he still could be a useful player. If he were to join Oakland, they would have quite the potent passing offense.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 3/3/18 6:25pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' contract extension is unlikely to be completed until after Washington Redskins impending free-agent Kirk Cousins signs his new deal, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has no reason to rush his extension, so waiting to see where Cousins sets the market makes sense. Rodgers isn't going anywhere, and his status as a top-tier QB1 is unlikely to change any time soon.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 3/1/18 10:54pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion) is feeling 'fine' and there is 'no long-term concern,' according to his agent Frank Bauer, after he sustained two concussions during the 2017 season, including one in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers. Bauer added that Adams has been cleared by 'multiple neurologists' and that he 'could have played in at least one of the final two regular-season games.'
Huddle Up: Despite missing the last two games of the year, Adams tied for second in the NFL with 10 touchdowns receptions, and he also led the team in receptions (74) and yards (885). He's had two nice seasons in a row, and with Aaron Rodgers expected to be 100 percent healthy at the start of next season, there's a solid chance the four-year veteran continues his impressive play.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 3/1/18 11:17pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones pleaded no contest Wednesday, Feb. 28, to one of three charges filed against him stemming from an incident in which he was pulled over for speeding and admitted to having smoked marijuana. The judge accepted his plea to a traffic citation for driving with a controlled substance in his system, while dismissing tickets for speeding and operating without a license. Jones was fined $1,047, had his license suspended for six months and was ordered to undergo an alcohol assessment.
Huddle Up: The takeaway from this is that Jones will most likely face some sort of disciplinary action from the NFL under its substance-abuse policy. It would be unfortunate if this ultimately costs him playing time, too, as Jones enjoyed a fine rookie campaign for a fifth-round draft pick, finishing second on the club in carries and yards, and he also tied for the team lead in rushing touchdowns. He also averaged 5.5 yards per carry, so there is potential for the 23-year-old.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/28/18 11:28am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) met with Dr. Pat McKenzie, and 'everything looks good' with Rodgers' clavicle, according to Packers head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Rodgers should be A-OK for Week 1, but his ability to stay healthy is an ever-growing concern. Treat him as one of the top two or three quarterbacks in 2018 drafts.
Brett Hundley - QBPosted 2/28/18 4:21pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley was forced into a starting role last season, and the team still has faith in his despite the fact he wasn't ready to start. 'Brett Hundley wasn't ready for what he needed to be ready for,' head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday, Feb. 28. 'That's something we have to learn from, and that stings.' The coach also said others didn't step up around him, and he still believes in Hundley.
Huddle Up: Hundley won three of his nine starts and kept the team mathematically alive for the postseason before Aaron Rodgers could get healthy enough to return. Fantasy owners hope that they do not see Hundley again in a starting role again in 2018, as that would mean disaster has struck Rodgers and his owners again.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 2/28/18 4:43pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson remains in the team's plans, and both head coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Brian Gutekunst didn't appears to be making plans to cut him after a down season. The duo stressed it is important to examine all factors in Nelson's diminished output.
Huddle Up: Nelson had a down season, but he didn't really jell well with backup Brett Hundley while Davante Adams and Randall Cobb fared better. The return of Aaron Rodgers will give Nelson his starting quarterback, and the team will then be able to evaluate him during offseason workouts to determine his future better. It appears he'll be in Green Bay in 2018, at least for now, but it's clear his days as a No. 1 fantasy option are in the rear-view mirror.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 2/28/18 5:01pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery is still considered a running back, head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday, Feb. 28, but he could be more of a hybrid back/receiver heading into 2018.
Huddle Up: Montgomery has had a difficult time staying healthy in his first three NFL seasons, and his health is contingent on his role going in 2018. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams showed what they could do during glimpses of brilliance in 2017, so a hybrid role makes more sense for Montgomery going forward.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/27/18 4:13pm ET
The Green Bay Packers have made progress in contract extension talks with QB Aaron Rodgers, according to team president Mark Murphy.
Huddle Up: The two sides likely will continue to have contract talks throughout the offseason and should be able to reach an agreement at some point. Rodgers will be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues as long as he is healthy.
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.
