Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 6/18/18 10:25am ET
Green Bay Packers RBs Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones will be part of a committee at running back this upcoming season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said the team will be able to adjust if one of the running backs shows they can be the full-time starter.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the preseason to see how each running back is used. Montgomery probably is the best receiver out of the three, but Williams and Jones are also decent receivers. All three will have value in fantasy leagues but none will be more than No. 3 running backs unless one takes over the starting job.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 6/11/18 1:06pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery seems to be set for a big role in 2018, according to ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky. Head coach Mike McCarthy said the offense is suited for Montgomery's skill set and the Packers need to take advantage of that. Nevertheless, McCarthy admitted that he will continue to take a committee approach with the backfield with RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams included.
Huddle Up: Green Bay's backfield will be one of the tougher backfields to figure out this offseason. Each of the three running backs flashed at different points in 2017. They can all bring something to the table, but Jones appears to have the most upside. Either way, none of them should be drafted as higher than an RB2.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 6/4/18 10:47am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) is participating in organized team activities Monday, June 4. He missed the first two weeks of workouts because of a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Adams will be the top option in the team's passing game this season and should be one of the better receivers in the NFL. He likely will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues and likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 5/22/18 11:32am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like it will take long for Adams to get back to 100%, assuming no setbacks. He's a legitimate WR1 candidate.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 5/3/18 9:25am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are expected to agree on a new deal soon, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: It sounds like both sides will be happy. The Packers won't have their franchise quarterback threatening to hold out and Rodgers will have a new contract and will be able to focus on football. When healthyl, an argument can be made that he's the No. 1 fantasy quarterback, even without Jordy Nelson.
J'Mon Moore - WRPosted 4/28/18 10:42am ET
The Green Bay Packers selected Missouri WR J'Mon Moore with the 133rd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Moore probably will be a No. 4 receiver for the Packers and could be a red zone target as a rookie. He probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Equanimeous St. Brown - WRPosted 4/28/18 2:07pm ET
The Green Bay Packers selected Notre Dame WR Equanimeous St. Brown with the 207th overall pick (Round 6) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: St. Brown led the Irish with 58 receptions, 961 yards and nine touchdowns in 2016 with QB DeShone Kizer, who is now in Green Bay, too. The passing game in South Bend was poor in 2017 under Brandon Wimbush, so his receiving numbers decreased through no fault of his own. He has a chance to be a starter down the road.
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.
