Outlook

The Packers remains a solid team. The offense should be better with Jordy Nelson back healthy and Eddie Lacy in better shape. And don't overlook a defense that is very good. This unit is capable of shutting down the opposition any given week. Green Bay should be considered the favorite to win their division and could even challenge for a spot in the Super Bowl if all goes well for them this year.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Jeff Janis barely saw the field during the regular season but had a breakout game during the playoffs, catching seven passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns. This could propel him to more playing time for the coming year. He could emerge as the No. 3 for the team with a strong camp and preseason. Janis isn't a sure thing by any means but is worth a late-round pick because of his potential in an explosive offense.
FANTASY DUD
Most thought that receiver Davante Adams was going to have a breakout season last year. That wasn't the case, though, with Adams posting very erratic numbers. He had trouble with drops and finished with fewer than 500 yards for the season. We don't see a sudden turnaround this season, especially with a lot of younger options pushing him for playing time. He could fall down the depth chart this season and even lose a roster spot if he disappoints in camp and preseason action.

Team Notes

May 25, 02:13 PM Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy still weighs 'in the 240s,' according to a source. Lacy did P90X workouts in the offseason and turned to basketball and boxing, too. It was reported back in April that Lacy had already lost 15 to 18 pounds. Head coach Mike McCarthy characterized Lacy's condition as 'so far, so good.' 'Eddie will be fine,' McCarthy said. 'I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on.'
May 24, 06:53 PM Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is right on schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It's still unclear if Nelson will participate in organized team activities.

May 03, 03:13 PM Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams' roster spot is not a lock for the 2016 season, in the opinion of Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. WRs Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis and Trevor Davis are also not guaranteed roster spots.

Apr 12, 02:53 PM Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has worked his way into better shape this offseason, and the people around Lacy believe the Packers are going to be happy with what they see when Lacy reports to the offseason program, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer. Breer said Lacy has redistributed weight from his midsection to his shoulders and arms. Lacy has slimmed down over the last two months in large part because of P90X workouts.
Apr 08, 04:33 PM Green Bay Packers CB Demetri Goodson has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs.
