RB - FA
This Week Outlook
Former Green Bay Packers FB John Kuhn is signing with the New Orleans Saints.
After a 10-year career with the Green Bay Packers, Kuhn signed with the New Orleans Saints following his offseason release. After it was seemingly phased out over the past number of years, it appears that the fullback position is creeping its way back into the NFL and Kuhn is one of the best in the league. That being said, he has minimal fantasy value in 2016.
John Kuhn snagged one reception for eight yards and added one carry for a yard and a score in San Francisco.
John Kuhn got his first two touches of the season, and both were successful. Kuhn disappointed Lacy owners worldwide when he got the goaline carry late in the game. Kuhn remains as he has always been, an excellent player that holds no fantasy value other than potentially hurting Lacy's value as the occasional touchdown vulture.
The Packers added the FB with the 30th pick of the sixth round.
It seems that Kuhn may have some competition this year as the Packers added a new FB. Neither should have any fantasy value other than the rare goal line score.
The Green Bay Packers have re-signed FB John Kuhn to a one year deal worth the veteran's minimum.
While Packers fans may enjoy another year of yelling "Kuuuuuuuuuuuuhn," he has no place on a fantasy roster in any league. His return could mean good things for the Packers pass production and run blocking, but nobody would have thought less of Aaron Rodgers or Eddie Lacy had Kuhn not returned.
John Kuhn scored a 2 yard touchdown in Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the Seahawks.
John Kuhn touched the ball one time and capitalized by finding the end zone. 1 rush for 2 yards, and a touchdown. That's a low stat line for a "vulture", and that's because Kuhn is not one. His main purpose on the team is pass protection and the occasional lead-blocking duties. Lacy is more than capable of handling goal-line carries so do not expect Kuhn to get the opportunity to score every game. Leave him on the waiver wire. That said, it was a good strong run. "Kuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhnnnnnnn!"
