Saquon Barkley

You’ve heard all the rumblings at this point. “He missed most of last year!” they said. “He’s still banged up!” “No way he’ll be at 100%!” The list goes on and on and on. Yet Saquon Barkley remains one of the largest enigmas in all of fantasy football in this year of our Lord 2021. As a rookie in 2018, Barkley was the best fantasy player in all of professional football. Since then, injury-prone seasons have caused many missed games, leaving many wondering when he is worth picking up, or if he’s even worth the potential roster headache at all.…

Rodgers is back

We have all been twiddling our thumbs, eagerly awaiting any news from Aaron Rodgers’ camp on what his plans were for the 2021 season. Countless Bears fans have been trolling me all off-season: “What’s up with your boy?!” they said. “Denver? Oakland? San Fran?” they all jeered with a smirk. But, I couldn’t respond. Rodgers silence these past few months has been deafening to say the least. But the wait is over, Packers fans. The MVP is back with the Pack and ready for camp! https://twitter.com/RobDemovsky/status/1420013833754759173 And there was much rejoicing! Unless, of course, you are among the countless Bears…

Amari Rodgers

There will be at LEAST one A. Rodgers on the Packers roster this season. https://wisportsheroics.com/packers-select-josh-myers-in-second-round/ Amari Rodgers, a wide receiver, was drafted by the Packers (yes, you read that right) in the 3rd round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The Clemson receiver lead the Tigers with 77 receptions and 1,020 yards last season to go with 7 touchdowns. He was #1 overall pick Trever Lawrence’s primary target in a unique, but successful season that nearly ended in another national championship. But how does he figure as a fantasy performer in Green Bay? Let’s take a look. Amari Rodger’s Pro Day…

“Rodgers hates Green Bay, suddenly! Wants out now!” https://wisportsheroics.com/aaron-rodgers-reportedly-wants-security-from-packers-front-office/ We all heard the news yesterday. Aaron Rodgers, King of the North, is disgruntled and wants out of the frozen tundra. While I still firmly believe we have not seen the last of Rodgers in the Green and Gold, we have to consider the painful truth. Rodgers may be done as a Packer. [pickup_prop id=”6693″] This raises the question: How does this change the fantasy outlook of every player who does currently wear the G with pride? Does their stock go up, or down? Let’s take a look at the major…

Aaron Jones is back in the Green and Gold, so say it with me: Run it back! https://twitter.com/packers/status/1375863436870103050 While Jones might not have been an exciting signing from another team, the Packers were able to retain a dynamic offensive weapon many thought was unsignable by the cap-strapped Pack. Clearly, the front office thought very highly of Jones, finding his particular set of skills irreplaceable in either free agency or the draft. While it may have cost a pretty penny, Green Bay got their guy in Jones. Still not convinced? Let’s take a look at the Aaron Jones’ top-5 fantasy outputs…

Funchess

Devin Funchess saw what the Packers were cookin’ in 2020 from the comfort of his couch and decided he wanted in – no matter the cost. Turns out that will be about $750,000. Funchess, who last saw the field in an Indianapolis Colts uniform in 2019, signed with the Packers last offseason but opted out of 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns. Those concerns were extremely valid, and I’m glad he had a safe and healthy 2020 with his family. The issue did arise this season, with a drastically reduced salary cap forcing many players to be cut or take one.…

Watt

Watt to Green Bay. Not since Brett Favre waffling over retirement have Packer fans been more eagerly awaiting a decision. Homegrown hero and superstar DE J.J. Watt is a free agent. The Packers were once again one game short of the Super Bowl, and once again, the defense was largely to blame. Adding Watt seems like a no-brainer on paper, but alas, these things are never so simple. https://twitter.com/TotesmahGotz/status/1362483248195117056 The salary cap is the obvious elephant in the locker room, with Green Bay needing to shed a ton of salary in order to afford the only player in NFL history…

Another week, another Packers drubbing of a divisional foe. MVS is hot and Lazard is Mr. Consistent. But this was not exactly a week for clarity. Davante Adams was getting all the headlines after week 1, but a semi-early injury sidelined him for the remainder of the game. Aaron Jones then took it upon himself to have the best game of his career, racking up a whopping 45.6(!) fantasy points. The Lions simply had no answer for the contract-year back. But after these two juggernauts, who is capable of stepping up into the pantheon of “fantasy-relevant” skill players? If Adams…

Looking to week 2

My analysis for Week Two? Rodgers is back, Adams is a monster, and Jones found the end zone again. That’s it. That’s the whole article. Of course, I’m joking, but you can’t help but feel this way if you watched the game on Sunday. After some initial red zone discomfort, the good guys in green and gold figured it out and put on an offensive clinic in a dismantling of a young, rebuilding rival defense. It’s hard not to feel confident going into week two against another divisional foe, but let’s take a closer look at who you should be…

That's my quarterback

Let’s not kid ourselves. This is an article about the best fantasy football options for quarterback on the Green Bay Packers, so don’t get any delusions this could be about anyone other than the “Golden GOAT” himself, Mr. Aaron Rodgers. Any comments on Jordan Love “potentially outplaying” the 2-time MVP or a “dual-QB system” will be flagged, reported, banned, and set on fire. This page is about fantasy, not nonsense. In the interest of fairness, I will chat ever so briefly about the other quarterbacks on the Packers’ roster. Still, if you are looking for anything click-baity about how “Tim…
