NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers made some noise this offseason by not drafting a wide receiver, which was a big need. And instead of a wide receiver, they drafted a quarterback in the first round and then yet another running back in the second round. Those first two picks, Jordan Love and A.J. Dillon, won’t even start this season unless there is an injury to Aaron Rodgers or Aaron Jones.
It sure looks like the team looked to the future in the draft despite winning 13 games and their division last year. This year looks like it will need to be vintage Rodgers if the team wants to get back to their 2019 record.
High fantasy/betting impact
* Wide receiver Devin Funchess opted out of the 2020 season. — source — July 28
Funchess was destined to start for the Packers after they didn’t select a receiver in the draft, but now it looks like Allen Lazard will get the first shot at No. 2 duties behind Davante Adams.
Low fantasy/betting impact
* Claimed WR Travis Fulgham off waivers — August 15
* Signed WR Malik Turner — August 12
Turner will compete for receiver snaps, but is deep on the depth chart
Hunter Bradley — August 3
Mason Crosby, K — July 30
Treyvon Hester, DT — July 30
Greg Roberts, LB — July 28
Jace Sternberger, TE — July 30
