2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Green Bay Packers
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Packers had some struggles last season but still made the playoffs. They remain one of the top teams in the league and should improve on last season. The defense made some positive additions and the offense will be as good as ever. Green Bay can finish with double-digit wins and challenge for a spot in the Super Bowl. They have the talent to make a lot of noise in 2014.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Running back Eddie Lacy was good last season but should take his game to a new level this season. He can be an elite back in this league and offense. The Packers are a pass-first team but going to the run more because of Lacy. He'll score double-digit touchdowns in this offense and can get around 1,800 total yards. He is a top three-down back capable of huge things as long as he gets the touches.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Jarrett Boykin played well in an expanded role last season and will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Packers to open this season. But he has rookie Davante Adams pushing him for playing time, which isn't a good thing because Adams is more talented than Boykin. And while Boykin played well last season, he was inconsistent at times. He doesn't really wow in any one area, so it might just be a matter of time before he is demoted below Adams.

Team Notes

Jul 28, 06:43 PM Green Bay Packers LB Mike Neal lost weight this offseason and is down to 263 pounds, which is close to the ideal weight for an outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Dom Capers' system. Neal went from 305 pounds to 275 pounds last offseason.
Jul 28, 12:42 PM Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb doesn't think he's done enough yet in his career to deserve a contract extension from the team. He's entering the final year of his rookie deal, and Cobb had a breakout year in 2012 with 80 catches for 954 yards and eight touchdowns. 'I got injured in a way that there was nothing I could do about it,' Cobb said. 'I think my job is just to come out here every day, do what I'm supposed to, continue to work hard, and hopefully my time will come.'
Jul 28, 10:03 AM Green Bay Packers FS Micah Hyde has the edge over S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix for the starting free safety spot.
Jul 27, 10:02 AM Green Bay Packers LB Jamari Lattimore (Undisclosed) is not participating in practice Sunday, July 27.
Jul 26, 11:02 PM Green Bay Packers LB Mike Neal (abdomen) and Nick Perry (foot, knee) is close to coming off the Physically Unable to Perform list and participating in practice, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Jul 26, 11:02 PM Green Bay Packers DE Jerel Worthy (back) is out indefinitely because of a lower back injury, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Jul 26, 01:32 PM Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson signed a four-year, $39 million extension with $14.2 million guaranteed, according to a source.

Fantasy Impact: This is a good move for the Packers, getting their top receiver locked up for several seasons.
Jul 26, 10:02 AM Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis (illness) is not participating in practice Saturday, July 26.
Jul 26, 09:42 AM Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (thumb) is wearing protection on his thumb in practice Saturday, July 26.
Jul 25, 06:22 PM Green Bay Packers LB Nick Perry (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 25.
Jul 25, 06:22 PM Green Bay Packers LB Mike Neal (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 25.
Jul 25, 06:02 PM Green Bay Packers DT Letroy Guion (undisclosed) and DE Jerel Worthy (undisclosed) were placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 25.
Jul 25, 06:02 PM Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Illness list Friday, July 25.
Jul 21, 11:23 AM Green Bay Packers FB John Kuhn didn't have a quarterback pressure in 325 snaps last season, with half of the snaps coming in spread formations. 'He did block better,' an NFC North scout said. 'He can cover you up as a lead (blocker) but he's just not great there. He's valuable because he's really good in pass protection and he can catch the ball.'
Jul 19, 12:32 PM Green Bay Packers C Corey Linsley could be in line for the starting center job if C JC Tretter is not able to handle the job.
Jul 18, 04:52 PM Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said his body has been feeling good to the point where he can keep his legs underneath him for a long time. Rodgers attributed his well-being to changes he's made off the field regarding his eating patterns.
