  Packers | James Starks probable    Fri Oct 24, 05:05 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 24, but is probable for Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints. The Packers didn't practice Friday, so Starks' designation is an estimation.

  Packers | Randall Cobb in a groove    Thu Oct 23, 09:04 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels much better about his level of play in recent weeks than he did at the start of the year. 'You just kind of get in a zone,' Cobb said. 'It's like a runner's high, or writing an exam paper and you're on page 7, and the next thing you know you're on page 12. It's just one of those things where you continue to press on, and things happen.'

  Packers | James Starks limited Thursday    Thu Oct 23, 04:33 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 23, after not practicing Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Starks isn't worth much with Eddie Lacy playing well, even if Lacy isn't as good as he played last season. We have Lacy as an RB2 and Starks way back in the RB4 ranks.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers a much-improved QB    Thu Oct 23, 01:51 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a passer rating of 154.5 against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7, and head coach Mike McCarthy thinks his quarterback is better than he was when he won the Most Valuable Player award in 2011. Rodgers has thrown 18 straight touchdown passes without an interception heading into Week 8. 'Aaron is a much better player today than he was in 2011,' said McCarthy. 'His responsibility level has increased a lot since then. So, what he does during the course of the week, during the course of the game, at the line of scrimmage, the communication between (quarterbacks coach) Alex Van Pelt and myself, he is, in my opinion, watching him grow throughout his career, he's clearly a better player.' Rodgers' streak of 192 pass attempts without an interception is the longest of his career and second best stretch by any Green Bay quarterback since Bart Starr went 294 passes without throwing an interception.

Footballguys view: How do you improve upon perfection? We don't know but apparently Aaron Rodgers does. With two exceptions (Week 1 against Seattle and Week 3 against Detroit) Rodgers has been outstanding this year and has thrown 18 touchdowns compared to one interception. He's a must-start every week and is always a QB1 for your fantasy team. He's been so efficient that both Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson are effective every week at no less than a WR2 level.

  Packers | James Starks practicing    Thu Oct 23, 01:20 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Starks really only gets work when Eddie Lacy is hurt. Lacy hasn't been as good as he was in his rookie season but should be a solid RB2 this week against New Orleans. If Lacy is playing, Starks is no better than an RB4.

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Starks injured the ankle in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.

  Packers | James Starks injures ankle    Sun Oct 19, 09:46 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) left the Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers in the third quarter due to an ankle injury and he was unable to return.

Footballguys view: Starks injury might not be that serious if the Packers just removed him to be careful in a blowout. He's rosterable in deep leagues as a potential hit if Eddie Lacy goes down.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson finds end zone    Sun Oct 19, 01:15 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught a 59-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 7 game.

Footballguys view: The Panthers pass defense can't cover well and they can't tackle effectively either. They are going to be a matchup to target at least until Greg Hardy returns, which may not even be this season.

Green Bay Packers DE Datone Jones (ankle) and CB Sam Shields (knee) have been ruled out for Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers. WR Jarrett Boykin (groin), LB Jamari Lattimore (neck) and CB Tramon Williams (ankle) are questionable, while LB Sam Barrington (hamstring) and DT Josh Boyd (knee) are probable. Jones and Shields didn't practice Friday, Oct. 17. Boykin, Lattimore and Williams were limited, while the others practiced in full. The Packers didn't actually practice Friday, so the designations are an estimation.

Footballguys view: Even if Boykin is active, Davante Adams appears to have seized the #3 wide receiver role for good.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers protecting the ball    Thu Oct 9, 10:06 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has gone 128 pass attempts without throwing an interception, and his lone interception of the year came in Week 1. Rodgers currently owns the lowest interception percentage in NFL history.

Footballguys view: Rodgers is not getting blitzed that often. His blitz per dropback percentage (25.2) is well below the average of 29.8 percent. He's also only seeing pressure on 20.2 percent of his dropbacks, whereas the league average is 23.8percent. The lack of pressure makes Rodgers one of the most accurate and dangerous quarterbacks in the league.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams continues to get snaps ahead of WRs Kevin Dorsey and Jeff Janis. He has stepped into the No. 3 receiver role with WR Jarrett Boykin (groin) sidelined, and QB Aaron Rodgers hinted Wednesday, Oct. 8, that there is more to come. 'Davante, he's open on film a lot,' Rodgers said. 'He's run a lot of good routes. He had only one catch last week, but if he stays confident and keeps making plays like he's doing in practice, the ball is going to keep coming his way.'

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson entered the Week 5 game leading the NFL in catches and receiving yards, but he had only two catches (one for a 66-yard touchdown) against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Oct. 2.

Footballguys view: The Packers were on cruise control early, and that's why Nelson wasn't asked to do more.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy decisive but flexible    Fri Oct 3, 09:38 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was able to adjust on the fly in Week 5. He had an 11-yard cut-back run Thursday, Oct. 2, where he ran into his left tackle, but he changed his course and found a hole to the right. 'One thing that I noticed that I did (in previous weeks), and Coach (Sam) Gash pointed out, was when I made my decision, I made it,' Lacy said. 'I just got my pad level down and just drove it and made whoever had to hit me make it a tough hit on their behalf instead of slowing down and hitting the air brakes, as he said.' Lacy also turned the corner and trucked a defender's helmet off on his way to the end zone.

Footballguys view: Lacy was playing manball on Thursday night against the Vikings. He looked like most expected him to look this year. The Packers are going to have some easier games coming up on their schedule, and Lacy should continue to reward his fantasy owners with RB1 performances.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy breaks out    Thu Oct 2, 11:52 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy rushed for a season-high 105 yards on 13 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns Thursday, Oct. 2. He also added three catches for 27 yards.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners who were faithful in Lacy were rewarded. Part of this is Thursday night "blowout" football, part of this is the Vikings defense and part of this is Lacy himself. As the Packers offense gains more confidence, it will lead to good weeks from Lacy. Expect him to play like a low-end RB1 with upside going forward.

  Packers | Davante Adams grabs first TD    Thu Oct 2, 11:35 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught the first touchdown pass of his career in the team's Week 5 game Thursday, Oct. 2. The 11-yard score was his only catch of the game.

Footballguys view: Adams is the guy to watch here. We know the Packers' passing game is all about Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb....but there could be a bit of room for he rookie. We liked Adams as a "what the heck" flex in Week 5. If the Packers have a great matchup, then that's where Adams should rank.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers throws 200th TD    Thu Oct 2, 11:26 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw the 200th touchdown pass of his career in the second quarter of the team's Week 5 game. He finished with 156 yards and three touchdowns before being replaced by QB Matt Flynn in the fourth quarter with the Packers leading 42-7.

Footballguys view: Rodgers didn't have to do much on Thursday night. He was efficient as a passer, and the ground game was pounding the Vikings into submission. In a rich man/poor man scenario, Rodgers on the sidelines in the fourth quarter is either great--because of a blowout, or terrible--because of an injury. It was clearly "baseball cap time" after the Packers built a huge lead.

  Packers | Jarrett Boykin could miss two games    Thu Oct 2, 09:15 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (groin) has a more severe groin injury than originally thought, and he has been ruled out for Week 5. He could also miss the Week 6 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Boykin should be off your fantasy team in redraft leagues. Watch for rookie Davante Adams to start to break through. He's a talented WR3 behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. We like Adams' ability to play "above the rim" which makes him a great target in the red zone.

  Packers | Wednesday practice report for Week 5    Wed Oct 1, 02:17 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 5 game. LB Josh Boyd (hamstring) and DE Josh Boyd (knee) both did not practice and are doubtful. LB Brad Jones was limited in practice and is probable. LB Mike Neal (hip) did not practice and is probable. OG T.J. Lang (not injury related) is probable. LB Clay Matthews (groin) fully practiced and is probable.

Footballguys view: Davante Adams is a boom/bust WR3/Flex tomorrow night on this news. He had a long TD on an insane throw from Aaron Rodgers called back by penalty last week, so the big play upside is there in this offense with this quarterback.

  Packers | More carries for James Starks?    Tue Sep 30, 08:20 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks did not register a carry in the team's Week 4 game, and head coach Mike McCarthy said that will change going forward. 'James Starks should touch the football every single game,' McCarthy said Tuesday, Sept. 30. 'That will not happen again.'

Footballguys view: Watch this situation closely. The Packers haven't been moving the ball consistently on the ground with Eddie Lacy. Perhaps they'll give a few carries to Starks in order to jump-start the ground game.
