  Packers | Fines not motivating Eddie Lacy    Fri Feb 17, 12:04 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy has been fined over the last couple of seasons for not making weight by head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: Lacy is likely to have to sign a one-year "prove it" deal no matter where he lands...and even if he stays with the Packers. He's got a couple of 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, but problems staying healthy and weight issues will keep his contract offers somewhat reserved.

  Packers | T.J. Lang hasn't heard from Packers    Mon Feb 13, 02:26 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OG T.J. Lang said he has not heard a word from the Packers in regards to a possible re-signing.

  Packers | One-year deal in Eddie Lacy's future?    Sun Feb 12, 01:45 PM

Impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy is expected to get a one-year deal worth about $2 million was plenty of incentives in free agency this offseason, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty.

Footballguys view: Lacy is likely to sign a "prove it" deal this offseason. He began his pro career with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons after the Packers took him in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft. He's rushed for around 1,000 yards combined over the last two seasons and missed 11 games in 2016 due to injury. Durability problems and weight issues will give any team pause when considering the big back in free agency.

  Packers | Davante Adams healthy in 2016    Fri Feb 10, 11:58 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams tied for second in the NFL with 12 touchdown receptions in 2016, and QB Aaron Rodgers said Adams was able to produce because he was finally healthy.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners certainly took note of a healthy Adams. His touchdown total will be difficult to duplicate, and Adams will always drop too many passes (nine drops in 2016). However, he's a WR2 with upside each week since Adams has earned the trust of QB Aaron Rodgers.

  Packers | Randall Cobb entering pivotal year    Fri Feb 10, 10:05 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is entering a make-or-break year in 2017, according to beat writer Rob Demovsky.

Footballguys view: After his 1,200 yard season in 2014, Cobb has combined for roughly 1,400 yards receiving over the last two years. He's due $8.6 million in 2017, and there is buzz building that he could be asked to take a pay cut. Fantasy owners should consider Cobb a WR3/flex option unless/until he starts playing like he did a couple of years ago.

  Packers | More on Sam Shields' release    Wed Feb 8, 05:44 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields was released with a failed physical designation.

Footballguys view: He was never cleared by doctors after his Week 1 concussion. That's a problem as Shields wants to continue playing in the NFL.

  Packers | T.J. Lang hopes to return to Packers    Wed Feb 8, 02:33 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OG T.J. Lang said he hopes to re-sign with the Packers this offseason.

Footballguys view: Lang is one of the better interior linemen available in free agency this year. He should get plenty of interest from teams looking to upgrade in the trenches. The Packers have around $42 million in cap space at this time, and that gives them plenty of money to keep Lang even in a hotter market for his services.

  Packers | James Starks could return to Packers    Tue Feb 7, 05:33 PM

Free-agent RB James Starks (Packers) was due $3 million next season, but the Green Bay Packers could re-sign Starks at a lower price, in the opinion of ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Starks appeared in nine games this year, but he could only muster a paltry 2.3 yards per carry. The Packers could lose Eddie Lacy in free agency, and that could open the door for Starks to return. Starks could come back as a veteran backup behind a yet to be named starter.

  Packers | James Starks released    Tue Feb 7, 04:47 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (concussion) was released with a non-football injury designation Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: Starks could come back at a lower price, but it would only be a complementary role. He's a versatile veteran who can help as a runner or receiver out of the backfield.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson takes home hardware    Sat Feb 4, 08:12 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson was named the Associated Press Comeback Player of the Year Saturday, Feb. 4. He finished the year with 97 catches for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Nelson wasn't quite his old self in the deep passing game, but he was ultraproductive for fantasy as Aaron Rodgers' favorite touchdown target, and he proved to a #1 receiver again after knee problems wiped out a lot of his summer. He should be a top 10-15 drafted receiver again this summer.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson struggled with YAC    Mon Jan 30, 08:16 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson averaged 3.58 yards after the catch, which was his lowest average since his rookie season. He had either zero or minus yards after the catch on 41 of his 105 catches in 2016. He did finish with 15 touchdowns during the season.

Footballguys view: Nelson was still very productive, but was not the deep threat he had been in the past for Aaron Rodgers. His best days are probably behind him, although Nelson could still be a fantasy WR1 this year because of the quality of his quarterback.

  Packers | Randall Cobb had only two drops    Mon Jan 30, 08:09 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb dropped only two of his 105 targets this season and led the team with a drop rate of 1.9 percent. Cobb also led the team with an average of 5.05 yards after the catch.

Footballguys view: Cobb has never regained the on-field or fantasy form that made him a valuable commodity in 2014. He should be falling well into the mid-rounds in fantasy drafts this year.

  Packers | Davante Adams dropped fewer passes in 2016    Mon Jan 30, 08:08 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams saw his drop rate go from 12.5 percent in 2015 to only 6.2 percent in 2016. He also led the team in gains of over 35 yards.

Footballguys view: Adams was left for dead by fantasy drafters this summer, but he should be poised to be an even bigger part of the offense next season with Randall Cobb having trouble staying healthy and Jordy Nelson getting into the autumn of his career.

  Packers | Ha Ha Clinton-Dix plays every snap    Mon Jan 30, 09:29 AM

Green Bay Packers SS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix played every snap on defense in 2016. He is one of five defenders to do so this season. He played 1,029 snaps in the regular season and 207 in the postseason.

Footballguys view: Oakland safety Reggie Nelson, Detroit safety Glover Quin, San Francisco cornerback Rashard Robinson, and Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree were the others. Clinton-Dix was a rock in a secondary that suffered multiple key injuries this year and was forced to play a lot of inexperienced players.

  Packers | Christine Michael set to be FA    Sat Jan 28, 03:33 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Christine Michael will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: He's one of the most naturally talented runners in the NFL, but Michael has bounced around the league as he's almost constantly disappointed at every stop. He may get some team to sign him off the open market, but he'll be no lock for a 53-man roster.

  Packers | Green Bay hoping to re-sign Jared Cook    Fri Jan 27, 10:41 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Jared Cook is one of the players who will be a priority during free agency, and the front office is expected to be more aggressive pursuing free agents this offseason.

Footballguys view: Cook was able to play up to his potential when healthy. He missed six games with a high-ankle sprain, but Cook was a big part of the Packers passing attack. His size/speed combination make him difficult to match up with.

  Packers | Coach hopes Eddie Lacy re-signs    Thu Jan 26, 01:44 PM

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he hopes impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy re-signs with the Packers this offseason.

Footballguys view: He and Ty Montgomery--who will be remaining in the backfield--should be a solid one-two punch for the Packers next year. They desperately missed the run game this season, so Lacy could get a lot of use next year.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery staying at RB    Thu Jan 26, 11:48 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery will remain at running back in 2017, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: The question is whether he will be joined by Eddie Lacy, who is a free agent this offseason. While it seems a no-brainer to bring him back, the team was very unhappy with his weight and conditioning and could decide to add to the backfield in the draft or free agency.

  Packers | Two players signed by Packers    Tue Jan 24, 06:15 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Antwan Goodley and TE Beau Sandland were signed to Reserve/Future deals Tuesday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Baylor in 2015, Goodley has been on three teams during his short pro career. He's got the speed to get by defenders quickly, and Goodley has the ability to help as a return man too.

  Packers | Jared Cook big in playoffs    Mon Jan 23, 03:47 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Jared Cook totaled 18 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay's three playoff games this season. Cook had not made it to the postseason in his seven-year career and was content with his first season as a Packer. 'I'm just happy to be where I am,' Cook said. 'I'm happy to finally be able to get somewhere I've been searching on a journey. Not the ultimate goal, but you take the good with the bad.'

Footballguys view: Cook's career can always be summed up with the phrase "what might have been." Even this year, Cook had 30 catches for 377 yards but missed six games with a high-ankle sprain. He's been maddeningly inconsistent his entire pro career, and that may not change even if the Packers decide to bring him back in 2017.

Green Bay Packers OG T.J. Lang (foot, hip) will undergo foot and hip arthroscopic surgeries on Friday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: Lang was carted off in the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons on Sunday. The injury was thought to be more serious than it turned out to be. Lang is a free agent in 2017, and he's one of the best guards on the market. When healthy, Lang can be a quality starter at a Pro Bowl level.

  Packers | Sam Shields still experiencing headaches    Mon Jan 23, 12:13 PM

Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) still wants to play football, but told the Wisconsin State Journal recently he is still having occasional headaches. He suffered his second in a nine-month span in Week 1 and has four documented concussions during his seven-year NFL career.

Footballguys view: Shields has a cap hit of $12.1 million in 2017, but there's only $3.1 million remaining in dead money. If he continues to play (a HUGE if), then expect the Packers to restructure his deal. There's always a possibility that the Packers look to cut the veteran corner for 2017.

Footballguys view: Lang is the player to watch here. He's one of the best guards in the league when healthy, and Lang is set to be a free agent later this spring. The severity of his injury will determine how much of an impact it has on his next contract.
