  Packers | Aaron Rodgers keeping Jordy Nelson busy    Tue Sep 16, 06:14 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has targeted WR Jordy Nelson 30 times in two games so far this year. Rodgers has never targeted one of his wideouts more than 8.3 times per game in a season.

Footballguys view: Keep it up Rodgers! That's what Nelson's fantasy owners are saying. The two have a great connection, so the number of targets should not be overly alarming.

  Packers | New career high for Jordy Nelson    Sun Sep 14, 08:04 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson hauled in nine passes for 209 yards and an 80-yard touchdown in the Week 2 win against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Nelson burned a Jets secondary that was way undermanned at cornerback and didn't get to Aaron Rodgers enough to hold him and his #1 receiver down. It should be another big week for Nelson at Ford Field against the Lions in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Jones will be replaced by Jamari Lattimore in the starting lineup in a bid to help a defense that is reeling after the season-opening drubbing at Seattle.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy may change run style    Sun Sep 14, 02:35 AM

Because Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (head) has suffered two concussions in as many years, he is debating a change to his running style. 'I have to figure out a way to change the way I run but still keep the physical part of it. It's not really something I'm trying to change as of now. I guess as I get older, I'll figure out how it goes,' Lacy said.

Footballguys view: This is not great news as you never want a player thinking about what he is doing out there or otherwise playing in a way that is unnatural for him. Lacy is still clearly a strong fantasy football running back, but this is something to watch in upcoming weeks. This week vs. the Jets will be tough no matter what style Lacy runs with.

  Packers | Friday injury report    Fri Sep 12, 02:10 PM

Green Bay Packers LB Brad Jones (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the New York Jets. OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) is questionable, while TE Brandon Bostick (leg) and CB Demetri Goodson (concussion) are probable. Jones did not practice Friday, Sept. 12. Bulaga was limited, while Bostick and Goodson practiced in full.

Footballguys view: Bostick should join the Packers TE rotation, which doesn't offer short term fantasy value, although Bostick's basketball background makes him an intriguing hold in deep dynasty.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy listed as probable    Fri Sep 12, 01:38 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 2 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Lacy will play and he's a solid start, even though the Jets tough defensive line limits his upside.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy will play in Week 2    Thu Sep 11, 05:22 PM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) has been fully cleared and will play in Week 2 against the New York Jets, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy fully practiced Thursday, Sept. 11. Lacy said he plans to go back to the old helmet he wore last year after trying the new Riddell 'SpeedFlex' helmet in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks. 'Somehow I'll have to figure out a way to change the way I run, but still keep the physical part of it,' Lacy said. 'It's not really something I'm trying to change as of now. I guess as I get older I will figure out how it goes.'

Footballguys view: Great news for the Packers here. Lacy is a strong RB2-with-RB1-upside play against the Jets. The Packers will be back at home, and they should respond positively after getting hammered by the Seahawks in Week 1.

Green Bay Packers TE Brandon Bostick (fibula) and OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) were both limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 11. CB Demetri Goodson (concussion) fully practiced. LB Brad Jones (quadriceps) did not participate in practice.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy should play    Thu Sep 11, 03:25 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 11. Lacy should be ready to play in the team's Week 2 game.

Footballguys view: That's the good news. The bad news is he faces a Jets run defense which held the Oakland Raiders down and was ranked third in the NFL against the run last season. We see him as an RB1/RB2 guy in this matchup.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy in pads    Thu Sep 11, 01:20 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) is on the practice field in full pads Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Packers and Lacy owners both. They face a tough Jets run defense, which as we stated in this week's running matchups column, was the league's third-ranked rush defense during 2013and only allowed nine TDs all last year. Lacy is a definite start - he faced longer odds last season - but we see him more as a RB2 (albeit a high end one) with this matchup.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy not taking part    Wed Sep 10, 01:32 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) is attending practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, but is not participating.

Footballguys view: The Packers have to go through the NFL's protocol for dealing with concussions. Lacy could return to practice later in the week. If he does that, then he should be cleared to play in Week 2 against the Jets.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy won't miss extended time    Tue Sep 9, 02:23 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) isn't expected to miss significant time, but head coach Mike McCarthy said he'll need to be cleared by an independent neurologist before returning. RB James Starks would be the starting running back if Lacy can't return in Week 2.

Footballguys view: The Packers are following the NFL's protocol for dealing with concussions. Lacy should be able to practice later in the week. Fantasy owners need to add James Starks if at all possible just in case.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga could return Wednesday    Tue Sep 9, 02:16 PM

Green Bay Packers OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) is hoping to return to practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, after spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee in Week 1. Bulaga wants to return quickly, but the medical staff is being cautious. Despite allowing two sacks against the Seattle Seahawks, head coach Mike McCarthy said OT Derek Sherrod will remain the primary backup to Bulaga at right tackle.

  Packers | Lache Seastrunk worked out    Mon Sep 8, 06:50 PM

Free-agent RB Lache Seastrunk (Redskins) worked out for the Green Bay Packers Monday, Sept. 8.

Footballguys view: Seastrunk has amazing straight-line speed, and he can get to top speed in the blink of an eye. He is not a great receiver, having more drops (10) than receptions (9) during his college career at Baylor. The Packers are likely updating their emergency list here.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy clears first step    Fri Sep 5, 07:05 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) has cleared the first stage of the concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said he was told Lacy was feeling good Friday, Sept. 5.

Footballguys view: This is a great sign considering that this is not Lacy's first concussion and he missed a week after suffering a concussion in Week 2 last year. It's early, but he is on track to be ready for the Jets game in Week 2 with help from the long rest after a Thursday night game.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga injury update    Fri Sep 5, 04:18 PM

Green Bay Packers OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) is not expected to miss much time due to a medial collateral ligament injury, according to a league source. The injury is not serious.

Footballguys view: The Packers could be more vulnerable against the talented defensive lines of the Jets and Lions coming up on the schedule the next two weeks, but that could be the extent of the ripple of this injury.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga tears MCL    Fri Sep 5, 03:23 PM

Green Bay Packers OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) tore his medial collateral ligament in the team's Week 1 game. It is not known how much time Bulaga will miss.

Footballguys view: Derek Sherrod is a weakness that the Jets and Lions should be able to attack over the next two games, and the schedule doesn't get much easier in terms of pass rush for the Packers. This could be a costly loss for the offense.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson busy in Week 1    Fri Sep 5, 09:24 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson had nine catches for 83 yards and was targeted 14 times in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Nelson and Aaron Rodgers picked on Byron Maxwell, but there weren't any big plays to be had downfield, and a ball glanced off of Nelson's hands for an interception that pretty much salted this game away for Seattle. Nelson owners survived this one and they should have a better time of it vs. the Jets depleted secondary next week.

  Packers | Randall Cobb reaches end zone    Fri Sep 5, 09:20 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb had six catches for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Cobb had basically a garbage time touchdown, as the Seahawks had opened up a three-score lead and took the foot off of the gas. He was also the target on a long pass that drew an interference penalty. To escape with a solid game in this disaster for the Packers is a good sign of Cobb being a very strong WR2 with WR1 upside this year

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga may have escaped major injury    Fri Sep 5, 09:06 AM

Green Bay Packers OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) may have escaped a major injury in Week 1, as head coach Mike McCarthy said the team doesn't fear a major knee injury. It's being called a sprain, but test results are not known yet.

Footballguys view: Derek Sherrod was brutally bad, so Bulaga's return is going to be important for the Packers offense, which already lost swing tackle Don Barclay for the season to a torn ACL.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy suffers concussion    Fri Sep 5, 12:28 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (concussion) suffered a concussion during the team's 36-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Sept. 4. Lacy had 12 carries for 34 yards before heading to the locker room in the fourth quarter.

Footballguys view: Lacy has 10 days to clear the concussion protocol to be ready for the New York Jets in Week 2. He missed a week with a concussion last year, and it is possible that he also suffered a concussion in November of 2012 against Texas A&M while at Alabama. Chances are he'll be ready for Week 2 or Week 3 at the latest, but the next concussion for Lacy could cost him more time if it happens this season.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers has more control    Thu Sep 4, 02:21 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to receive more control over the offensive play calling Week 1, according to sources. The Packers are expected to use a fast-paced offense.

Footballguys view: Rodgers has MORE control? Man, that's scary. The Packers like to keep the ball moving and the pace rapid, so amping it up further could be a real problem for defenses. They want to keep the Seattle Seahawks from being comfortable by keeping them from rotating players out like they tend to do. The matchup isn't great but Rodgers is a no-brainer QB1 though it won't be one of his better weeks. Nelson may struggle a little. You'll start him but ultimately you should expect WR2 numbers, which is about where Cobb should be as well. Eddie Lacy has a tough matchup, but we still see him as a fringe RB1 in this matchup, putting up close to 100 yards combined and will be better than that if he can add a touchdown.
