Green Bay Packers

NFC North

Fantasy Impact: Jones is set to become a free agent after the 2020 season when his rookie deal expires. He’ll make just over $2M this year coming off a spectacular 2019 season in which he rushed for 1,084 yards and 16 TDs. The Packers took RB A.J. Dillon in the second-round of the Draft in case they can’t extend Jones long term. Jones’ agent Chris Cabott also told reporters that “there have been conversations and there will continue to be [regarding a contract extension].” Even with Dillon and Jamaal Williams in Green Bay, expect Jones to be a solid RB2, but expect regression from the 16 rushing touchdowns from a season ago.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has been “super impressed” with Reggie Begelton during the virtual offseason program. LaFleur said of Begelton, "We’ve been quizzing these guys quite a bit, and he is repeatedly at the top". Reggie Begelton, who will be 27 years old when the season begins, went undrafted in 2017, and has spent the last three seasons in the Canadian Football League. He had a breakout season in 2019 with 102 receptions for 1,444 yards with 10 touchdowns and was named a CFL All-Star and the Calgary Stampeders nominee for Most Outstanding Player. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Behind Davante Adams the Packers have a number of wideouts competing for the number two wide receiver spot on the depth chart. While they allowed Geronimo Allison to depart the Packers brought in Devin Funchess and Reggie Begelton in the offseason to compete with returnees Allen Lazard, Jake Kumerow, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Equanimeous St. Brown. Begelton will probably need to follow up his strong virtual performance with strong on-the-field practices, but there is potential for him to see quite a number of snaps this season if the situation breaks favorably for him in the weeks and months to come. Fans would be wise to keep an eye on this depth chart battle as we head into the summer months.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers spoke to the media via conference call on Friday for the first time since Green Bay drafted QB Jordan Love and told them that his desire to start and finish his career with the same team “may not be a reality at this point.” (Source: Jason Wilde on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers sounded like himself during a conference call with the media, the first time he’s spoken publicly since the Packers interestingly drafted Love with their first-round pick. He said he’d treat Love just like all the other backup quarterbacks in Green Bay, but acknowledged openly that it’s a bit different now that he’s been on record stating he that he feels great and wants to play into his 40s. At 36, Rodgers believes he’s got another at least four to five years in the tank, and Love likely won’t sit on the bench for the entirety of his rookie deal, so something’s got to give. He ended the conference call by answering one final question about not being thrilled with the Packers decision to select a QB in the first round. His response, “there are some new factors that are out of my control. And so my sincere desire to start and finish with the same organization, just as it has with many other players over the years, may not be a reality at this point.” Rodgers may very well play the next couple of seasons with a huge chip on his shoulder, which could spark some increased fantasy value perhaps. He’s currently ranked #12 in FantasyPros consensus QB rankings.

Fantasy Impact: Sternberger, the 75th overall pick in the 2019 draft, appeared in only six games last year after suffering an ankle injury. He didn't catch any passes in the regular season but being tied to Aaron Rodgers helps make him an interesting late-round fantasy option at tight end.

Devin Funchess officially signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Packers. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Funchess agreed to one-year deal with the Packers earlier this week, but now it's official. The deal also includes a $1 million signing bonus, including up to $3.75 million in incentives. Funchess broke his collar bone in the Colts’ opener and ended up being placed on injured reserved, missing the rest of the season. He finished with three catches for 32 yards in his only game as a Colt in 2019. Funchess gives Aaron Rodgers a big target, and could see a small boost in fantasy value. The 25-year-old wide receiver is mainly a stash in dynasty-league formats.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Los Angeles Chargers have reached a three-year contract worth $30 million with free agent tackle Bryan Bulaga for (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: We’re still waiting on the exact financials. The former Green Bay Packer will surely help protect whoever is at quarterback for the Chargers this season. Of course, there is a lot of speculation that it could wind up being Tom Brady.

Blake Martinez and the Giants agree to a three-year, $30 million contract, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Martinez finished second in the NFL in tackles with 155 last season. He has been one more durable linebackers, playing in all 48 regular-season games for the Packers the last three seasons. Martinez will bolster a Giants run defense which was in bottom of the league in 2019. The 26-year old will once again be one of the top linebackers off the board in IDP formats.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Packers are releasing Jimmy Graham on Thursday. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Graham will then become a free agent. This move was expected as the 33-year-old was set to make $11.66 million if he stuck around in Green Bay. Graham played in all 16 games last year, catching just 38 passes for 447 yards and three scores. His days as a difference maker appear to be over.

The Packers have signed kicker Mason Crosby to a three-year, $12.9 million contract extension. (Source: Mike McCartney on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Crosby looked like a cut candidate entering the 2019 season, but he was able to rebound for the Packers. After struggling in 2017 and 2018, Crosby made over 90% of his field goals and only missed one of his 41 attempted extra points during the 2019 regular season.

Davante Adams hauled in nine of 11 targets for 138 yards in the Packers’ 37-20 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Adams finished Sunday's game strong after failing to get involved in the first half. He accounted for a team-leading reception total thanks to a 65-yarder late in the game that set up a Green Bay score. He'll end the 2019 postseason with 298 receiving yards and two touchdowns while commanding an enormous target share. He'll look to get back into thousand-yard and double-digit touchdown territory in 2020 after failing to hit at least one of those marks for the first time since 2015.

Category: Game Recaps

Jamaal Williams rushed three times for six yards, adding two receptions on three targets for one yard in the Packers’ 37-20 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: After a strong first half of the season, Williams finished the year on a downward trajectory, and he ceded the majority of running-back touches to workhorse Aaron Jones. The former offered some flex appeal this season thanks to his complimentary work in the passing game, and the tandem of he and Jones will return for another run in 2020.

Allen Lazard corralled three of four targets for 36 yards in the Packers’ 37-20 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lazard had a forgettable afternoon in Sunday's loss, though he remained the clear No. 2 to Davante Adams in the Packers' receiving corps. The second-year man finished with career highs in receiving yards (477) and touchdowns (3) in 2019, though he's a free agent in 2020, and it's unclear if he'll return for another go with Green Bay.

Green Bay Packers D/ST recorded one sack and no turnovers in the Packers’ 37-20 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a dreadful showing for the Packers D/ST on Sunday, as the unit failed to force a turnover and hemorrhaged points all game. The up-and-down season for this defense concludes on a sour note, though there were plenty of encouraging moments this season as Green Bay looks ahead to 2020.

Tyler Ervin carried twice for 25 yards in the Packers’ 28-23 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ervin played backup to Aaron Jones with Jamaal Williams back for his first game in three weeks, though he only logged two touches behind Green Bay's workhorse. Ervin will likely see a drop-off in production in next week’s NFC Championship game with Williams back for a more sizable workload.

Category: Game Recaps

Geronimo Allison caught his only target for 11 yards in the Packers’ 28-23 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Allison didn't get much attention Sunday, as he came away with only 11 yards in the victory. With Davante Adams a complete siphon for the majority of Aaron Rodgers' targets, Allison and others don't have much of a role in the receiving game.

Category: Game Recaps

Marquez Valdes-Scantling brought in his only target for eight yards in the Packers’ 28-23 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: MVS remained a non-factor in Sunday's win, seeing just one target and failing to make an impact as he did throughout the regular season. He'll likely remain an afterthought in next week's trip to San Francisco.

Kevin King racked up four total tackles and one interception during Monday’s 23-10 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: King has 63 tackles, five interceptions, one sack, and one forced fumble through Week 16. The third-year DB is worth rostering in deeper IDP leagues or leagues that require a CB starting spot.

Category: Game Recaps

Za'Darius Smith racked up seven tackles (six solo) and 3.5 sacks during Monday’s 23-10 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Smith is the team leader in sacks with 13.5 through Week 16. He also has 54 tackles and one forced fumbles through the same time period. As long as he continues his sacking streak, he is a low-end LB1 in deeper leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Jaire Alexander racked up eight solo tackles and an interception during Sunday’s 21-13 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Alexander has 51 total tackles and two interceptions through Week 15. He can be left on waivers in most situations and is only a matchup dependent player.

Category: Game Recaps

Jake Kumerow brought in his only target for 49 yards in the Packers’ 21-13 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Kumerow caught a ball on the right sideline and made a man miss before taking off up field. He then broke several tackles and made a highlight spin move on his way to a 49-yard gain. It was a nice moment for the second-year man, but he entered the day with a 10/163/1 receiving line on the year and isn't on the fantasy radar at this time.
