2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Green Bay Packers
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Packers are one of the best teams in all of football. The offense just keeps churning along while the defense is getting better and better. Green Bay is maybe the most complete team in the NFC right now, making them a legit contender for a Super Bowl run. As long as Aaron Rodgers is heathy, this team is going to win a lot of games and make some noise in the NFC.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Many thought receiver Davante Adams was going to have a breakout season last year but that didnā??t come to fruition. We still like his chances to get things going in this offense and become a star at receiver. Adams is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands. Look for the Packers to use him more this year. Remember, they have produced many productive No. 3 receivers, so Adams can get his targets despite playing with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
FANTASY DUD
Tight end Andrew Quarless is the starting tight end for the Packers but has a small grip on the job. He has some youngsters pushing him for playing time. It only seems a matter of time before he falls down the depth chart for the Packers. He has produced some decent numbers in a starting role but nothing off the charts. Expect those numbers to dip even more this season with younger options eating into his playing time.

Team Notes

Jul 30, 05:22 PM Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless has not reported to training camp, and the Packers still don't know when he will do so. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Quarless is dealing with a difficult family situation and that he'll be gone as long as he needs to be. Quarless was arrested and charged earlier this month for firing a gun, but that seems to be unrelated to his current situation.
Jul 30, 01:52 PM Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (undisclosed) left practice early Thursday, July 30, because of an undisclosed injury after he fell during a drill. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he does not believe this injury is related to the knee injury that kept Abbrederis out for the 2014 season.
Jul 30, 11:42 AM Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) is practicing Thursday, July 30.
Jul 30, 11:02 AM Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (undisclosed) left practice Thursday, July 30, for an undisclosed reason. He returned for one snap and left again.
Jul 29, 02:43 PM Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be limited during training camp even though he has dealt with injuries over the last few seasons, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'We're not counting throws all the time, and it's not a concern as it will be when he's later in his career,' McCarthy said. 'I mean, he's still very physically fit and so I don't feel like I need to protect him because of any type of elbow or shoulder issue, thing like that. But we just work through it, communicate and see where he's at every day.' McCarthy said Rodgers' playing time in the preseason will not change.
Jul 24, 10:12 PM Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ranked fifth in yards after contact last year, and he plays 'like he weighs 300 pounds,' according to an NFC North personnel member.
Jul 23, 12:02 PM Green Bay Packers DT Letroy Guion has been suspended three games Thursday, July 23, for his Feb. 3 arrest. Guion plans to appeal.
Jul 20, 04:02 PM Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy said he doesn't set personal goals. Lacy said he focuses on whatever it takes to put the team in a position to win.
Jul 19, 10:42 PM Free-agent RB Pierre Thomas (Saints) ranked seventh among running backs with 45 catches last season, and only Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy graded higher at catching the ball, according to ProFootballFocus.com.
Jul 14, 02:33 PM Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless probably won't be imprisoned since he was charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony. Quarless was arrested for discharging a firearm in public, but he said it was an act caused by drunken stupidity, not violence.

Fantasy Impact: He still might get suspended by the league, so stay tuned.
Jul 07, 01:03 PM Green Bay Packers TEs Richard Rodgers and Andrew Quarless are expected to competer for the starting tight end job this year. Quarless caught 29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in 2014. However, he could be subject to discipline under the league's personal conduct policy after being arrested over the weekend for discharging a firearm in public.

Fantasy Impact: At this point, it would seem logical to give Rodgers every chance to win the starting job. We'll see.
Jul 06, 08:03 PM Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless will not be released at this time even though he was arrested this past weekend for discharging a firearm in public, according to sources.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't over yet, though. We'll keep you posted.
Jul 04, 01:43 PM Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless was arrested early Saturday, July 4, for allegedly firing a gun into the ground, according to police. Quarless supposedly was involved in a fight and fled the scene, but was apprehended. The tight end has been charged with discharging a firearm in public.

Fantasy Impact: We'll keep you posted on this one. A suspension could be coming.
Jul 02, 04:03 PM Green Bay Packers DE Datone Jones has been suspended one game by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Jul 01, 05:03 PM Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers could see more playing time in 2015, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Rodgers played 528 snaps, while fellow TE Andrew Quarless played 695 snaps. Demovsky said he wouldn't be surprised if those numbers reversed this season.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers is the best tight end to use in this offense. He should see a nice jump in targets this year.
