Fantasy Studs on the Green Bay Packers

If you are a fan of the Packers or are just looking to draft a few of the players onto your fantasy team, it is important to know who is looking to bust out and have a great year and who should be passed up. With a team that has dominated the NFC North for so many years, it is no doubt to have some great players (although the NFC North looks to be an especially difficult league this year). For drafting purposes, these are players you need to look at.

James Starks

The Packers’ running back is a solid workhorse who doesn’t receive as much credit as he should. He averaged 4.3 yards per carry last year and should be a solid additional running back to bring into the fold. While he probably isn’t the everyday starter for your team, when you have an off week for one of your top backs, this is a solid player you can pick up in later rounds.

Davante Adams

Now, when drafting a wide receiver you always want a team that has a solid QB. You can’t get a better passer in the game right now than Aaron Rodgers. Now, he is the third receiver option on the team, but that isn’t a bad thing. It just makes him an excellent late round pickup for your fantasy team. The third option is an important guy to have, as defenses tend to not put as much cover on him.

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers might just be the best overall QB in the game today. While he might not go down in the history books as highly regarded as a Tom Brady, in the league right now, he is playing at the top of his game. Now, he might not put up the same outlandish numbers as a Matthews Stafford or other team that plays in a dome and is towing the ball around 50 times a game. However, he does get the touchdowns and he is accurate. He’s one of those guys where as long as he stays healthy, he’ll be good to go. He was a bit hobbled at the end of the year, and Suh “accidentally” stepping onto his leg didn’t help, but he should be 100 percent going into the year.

Eddie Lacy

Eddie Lacy is the starting back for the Packers and he is a guy that can be picked up early on in your fantasy draft. He went to the Pro Bowl last year and finished 6th amongst other running backs. Now, for someone looking to draft a back out of the NFC North, Adrian Peterson is the way to go, as he’ll most likely be as fresh as he’s been in years (not to mention the crazy weapons around him this time around), but Lacy is probably the second best back in the entire division, which isn’t too shabby.
