Packers receiver Donald Driver will be the No. 3 receiver this week with Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson sidelined by injury.Fantasy Spin:Driver has always been an Aaron Rodgers favorite, but the Packers haven't used him much because of all the talent they have at wideout. He might get a half dozen looks in Week 8 and be a low-end fantasy value.
BEST OF MAXIM
I’m not a Green Bay Packers fan, but I’ve always respected the franchise. I’ve also always thought the Lambeau Leap was a fantastic tradition that connected the players on the team to the die-hard fans closest to the action on the field.
On Sunday, Donald Driver – easily one of the most likable players in the entire NFL – scored a touchdown with 12:36 remaining in Green...
The Green Bay Packers will already be without several
high-profile players during today’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and
Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports wide receiver Jordy Nelson is also
unlikely to suit up.
Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is questionable,
but SI's Peter King believes the wide receiver is unlikely to play against the
Running back James Starks has only six carries in the past three games
While Alex Green has averaged a pathetic 2.4 yards per carry in the past three games, a now healthy James Starks has carried the ball a total of six times. And five of those six carries came in garbage time against Houston. People can blame the offensive line all they want, but I blame Mike McCarthy. There’s...
GREEN BAY, Wis. It had been more than 20 years since the Packers blocked a punt for a touchdown prior to Sunday's game. Apparently, all it took to end that drought was having only 10 players on the field.
In Green Bay's 25-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the key play of the game came in the second quarter when cornerback Davon House sprinted off the left edge to block...
Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Jaguars.Fantasy Spin:The Packers aren't taking any chances with Nelson against lowly Jacksonville after Greg Jennings rushed back and aggravated his groin injury earlier this season. Get Randall Cobb and James Jones in your lineup.
Packers running back Alex Green handled 20-plus carries for the third straight game but rushed for just 54 yards Sunday against Jacksonville.Fantasy Spin:James Starks only had one carry in the game but Green is going to have to improve if he wants to keep his job. In the last three games the running back only has 154 yards on 64 carries (2.4 ypc).
The Green Bay Packers will be hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon, but they will likely be without their leading receiver, Jordy Nelson. Nelson has not practiced this week while he is dealing with a hamstring injury. Reports suggest that Nelson will test his hamstring prior to game time, but is likely to go this afternoon.

The beat-up Packers struggled on offense without receivers Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings. The defense, however, held firm in the second half.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers insisted they didn't take the downtrodden Jacksonville Jaguars lightly. They also blew off any suggestion that a rash of injuries impacted a mundane performance Sunday. No matter the reason, the Packers struggled to put away the Jaguars, escaping with a 24-15 victory at Lambeau Field. "I don't really think it's something...
The Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Green Bay Packers 24-15. The Jaguars went into the confines of Lambeau Field and emerged not victorious, but not demoralized either. The game still had its hero and zero. HeroDavon House and Dezmon Moses are the heroes of the game. While the Packers' offense is known for Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Donald Driver and Greg Jennings...
