PPR Fantasy Football:
Green Bay Packers
New Orleans Saints
Many fantasy football general managers fall in love with the idea of drafting the projected highest scorer in their league. It seems to be the obvious optimal strategy. If you draft the player who will score the most points in a given season, you have the best chance of winning your championship, right? Wrong. Despite being the top scorers in most leagues, quarterbacks rarely outscore their counterparts at the rate that running backs and wide receivers do. Most of us already realize this fact. What the majority does not realize is the extent of this information, and how to create value by waiting a few rounds to draft your franchise signal caller.
Aaron Rodgers is consistently being drafted in the first round of dynasty start-up leagues (cumulative ADP of 11.67 in Ryan McDowell’s 18 mock drafts thus far). At first glance, this isn’t surprising. Many of you will see him drafted right around that spot, if not earlier in your own start-ups. Rodgers has done plenty to warrant being the ...

Tweet Aaron Rodgers is a three-time Pro Bowl selection, Super Bowl (XLV) winner, former NFL MVP, and recently signed a contract extension with the Green Bay Packers that will pay him $110 million over five years.

The San Francisco 49ers changed their mind days before the 2005 draft and choose Alex Smith with the first overall pick. That decision sent the draft stock of Aaron Rodgers into a free fall where he was finally selected with the 24th pick by Green Bay.
Things worked out well for Rodgers. After serving as the backup to Brett Favre for three years, Rodgers has gone on to win a league...

John Abraham has played 13 seasons in the NFL and is nearing the end of his career. He recently tweeted about retirement.
Charles Woodson can't find a team to sign with, but players across the NFL still hold a very high opinion of the the 36-year-old defensive back. That was proven when Woodson was voted No. 85 on NFL Network's top 100 players list of 2013.
Woodson was released by the Green Bay Packers in February, three years after winning the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year award. With...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- At the conclusion of last weekends NFL Draft, Packers coach Mike McCarthy was feeling confident about his left tackle position heading into next season.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eight Pro Bowls haven't helped veteran free agent Charles Woodson land a job with a new team. Neither has Woodson's 15 years of NFL experience, his Super Bowl ring nor his 2009 Defensive Player of the Year award. But one of his former Green Bay Packers teammates, now-retired cornerback Al Harris, doesn't want it to end like this for Woodson.
Malliciah Goodman wasn't surprised to be asked about his long arms after his first practice with the Atlanta Falcons.
''It's not weird,'' Goodman said. ''It's repetitive. I hear it every single day. You get used to it.''

Just where do the Packers stack up in terms of drafting starters since Ted Thompson took over as GM? We sorted through eight years of drafts and more than 2,000 players to bring you that answer.
Few teams in the National Football League do the draft better than the Green Bay Packers. General manager Ted Thompson believes in building through the draft and taking the best player available whenever possible. This philosophy can sometimes frustrate the fan base but overall it has brought the Packers plenty of success over his eight-year run as general manager and it looks like...

Multiple reports have the Titans interested in Abraham, which let's face it, why wouldn't they be, but should Abraham be interested in the Titans?
I'm here to tell you that John Abraham will not go to the Titans...
