  Packers | Green Bay adds six via futures deals    Tue Jan 26, 04:38 PM

Free-agent WRs Reggie Begelton and Juwann Winfree, C Jake Hanson, PK JJ Molson, CB KeiVarae Russell and DL Delontae Scott signed Reserve/Future contracts with the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

Footballguys view: Winfree was an intriguing late-round prospect when the Broncos drafted him a couple of years ago. He needs to stay healthy (that was a problem for him in Denver) but we'll continue to monitor him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers unlikely to leave Green Bay    Tue Jan 26, 03:48 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is almost certain to remain with the team in 2021, according to comments made by team president and chief executive officer Mark Murphy on Tuesday, Jan. 26.'I'll say this: There's no way in heck that Aaron is not going to be on the Packers. I mean, he is going to be the MVP of the league, might have had his best year ever. He's our unquestioned leader and, you know, we're not idiots,' Murphy told WNFL Radio.

Footballguys view: Things seem cold right now between Rodgers and the Packers, but that might not really be the case. Rodgers kind of softened some of his comments in a recent interview with Pat Mcafee. He's too important to that team and those fans, so we have a feeling things will stay in place. Let's see if the future changes that.

  Packers | Jordan Love not ready    Tue Jan 26, 11:12 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love would not be the front runner to be the starting quarterback if QB Aaron Rodgers left, in the opinion of beat writer Rob Demovsky. Love struggled with accuracy in practice all season, and quarterback Tim Boyle would be more suited to open the season as starter.

Footballguys view: Boyle was the backup to Aaron Rodgers for the 2020 season. Love was a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft out of Utah State, but he was obviously raw last year at the Senior Bowl and needs more time to develop. Rogers said in an interview "I don't think that there's any reason I wouldn't be back." Stay tuned.

  Packers | Ten sign futures deals with Green Bay    Mon Jan 25, 05:17 PM

Free-agent LBs Tipa Galeai and De'Jon Harris, OG Zack Johnson, TE Isaac Nauta, DLs Willington Previlon and Anthony Rush, RBs Mike Weber and Dexter Williams, CB Stanford Samuels and P Ryan Winslow signed Reserve/Future contracts with the Green Bay Packers on Monday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Weber and Williams are players to watch in super deep dynasty formats. Partly because of their skill but partly because the Packers running back room is going to look different in 2021. Both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are set to be unrestricted free agents this offseason.

  Packers | Green Bay falls in NFC title game    Sun Jan 24, 06:24 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33-of-48 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Aaron Jones, who left the game early due to injury, left the team with 27 yards on six rushes. RB Jamaal Williams ran seven times for 23 yards and added four receptions for 22 yards. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the way with a game-high 115 yards on four receptions and a score, while WR Davante Adams had nine grabs for 67 yards and a score on 15 targets. WR Allen Lazard checked in with three receptions for 62 yards, while TE Marcedes Lewis had three grabs for 28 yards. TE Robert Tonyan also checked in with four grabs, 22 yards and a score. CB Jaire Alexander led the way with two interceptions, while totaling three total tackles and three passes defensed.

Footballguys view: Rodgers had a lot of chances to take control of this game in the second half after his team fell behind 18 points, but the Packers offense wasn't good enough in the red zone and Matt LaFleur chose to kick a field goal instead of going for it on fourth and goal at the 8, down 8 with about two minutes left. Jones has probably played his last down as a Packer, and Williams is also a free agent. Valdes-Scantling had a big game after playing only one snap the NFC title game last year. Adams impact on the game was not as big as expected and if anything Rodgers overreliance on him in the red zone hurt the team. The Packers will go back to the drawing board after getting one game from the Super Bowl two years in a row.

  Packers | Aaron Jones suffers injury    Sun Jan 24, 04:58 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (chest) suffered a chest injury during the NFC Championship game and is considered questionable to return.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers excels in clean pocket    Sat Jan 23, 03:10 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leads the league this season with 42 touchdown passes throwing from a clean pocket, per Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: Rodgers will slice up a defense under duress or in a clean pocket. It's not a surprise he was dealing this year when his protection was good.

  Packers | Allen Lazard not on injury report/    Fri Jan 22, 06:22 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (back, wrist) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 22, but is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Lazard came through in a big way for the Packers in the Divisonal Round, snaring four catches for 96 yards and a touchdown. He's the no.2 receiver for the Packers behind Davante Adams and could be called upon again to do big things against an aggressive Buccaneers secondary.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams on track to play    Fri Jan 22, 06:21 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 22, but is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Packers here. They're up against a tough front seven of the Buccaneers defense, so having a battering ram like Williams would greatly help. He'll serve as a power option and sometimes receiving back behind starter Aaron Jones.

  Packers | Davante Adams owns the red zone    Thu Jan 21, 10:46 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams led the NFL with 23 red zone receptions and 14 red zone touchdowns in 2020, and his 46 red zone touchdowns since 2016 are 17 more than any other player.

Footballguys view: Adams is a favorite target of QB Aaron Rodgers. He is one of the most trustworthy players in the league and knows how to work in cramped space down in the red zone.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers deadly downfield    Thu Jan 21, 09:39 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers led the NFL with 1,242 yards on passes thrown more than 20 yards downfield during the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: Rodgers has embraced the Matt LaFleur system which emphasizes working all levels of the field and using short passes to set up long ones after that. It's not a surprise that Rodgers would post these type of numbers on such passes.

S Will Redmond (knee) practiced in full.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on Dillon and Williams in the backfield as the week of practice continues. Both are key players behind starter Aaron Jones and can bring some power to the field as runners, plus Williams can work effectively as a receiving back.

  Packers | AJ Dillon iffy for conference championship?    Mon Jan 18, 04:45 PM

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon (thigh) is expected to practice at some point this week, but head coach Matt LaFleur is 'still waiting to see' whether or not he'll be ready to play in the NFC Championship game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.'We'll see where he's at. We've been off the last two days, so I have not seen him. We'll kind of play it through and we'll see where he's at, but we're hopeful that he'll be ready to go,' LaFleur said Monday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Dillon, the rookie from Boston College, is used by the Packers as a battering ram to wear down defenses. If he's out in the NFCC then the Packers can just feed Jamaal Williams more as a power option behind starter Aaron Jones.
