Every fantasy team general manager should make sure he or she include players from this years Green Bay Packers on their draft board. We are now at the time of the year when football fans have no mini camps, no training camp news and no game week news conferences to get our football fix. So, now is the time to get to the war room and start planning your fantasy team draft.

// > I figure I will take my own advice and begin my player research and where I can get the best player in each round of my up coming draft night. After looking through several magazines which have just hit the local magazine racks I discovered several Green Bay Packers who will be a great draft choices this year. First I will state the best of the Packers for any fantasy team, quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers could be looking at throwing 40 to 50 touchdowns to an outstanding group of receivers. Speaking of the receivers you will need to place Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, Donald Driver and Randall Cobb on your draft board. These receivers made 16 touchdown catches last year and should increase that number this year. I feel that the Packer offense will get more touches this season because of the improvements they made to the defensive unit during the off season. The one concern I have is that with all these talented receivers the Packers will line up on offense Rodgers will spread the ball around more than some other teams might. When this happens the individual touchdowns will go down and since you will not be able to draft all of the Packer receivers this could hurt your point total each week.  Now in the running game the Packers have John Kuhn, who scored a total of six touchdowns last year. I see no reason why Kuhn will not score that many or more this year. Kuhn might be a value in the later rounds of your draft. Finally, I feel the Packer defensive unit will be much improved this year with the draft choices they made this year including former Iowa Hawkeye Mike Daniels. I figure this unit should be a sleeper pick to earn you some surprise points this year. While the Packers defense will need to work hard to make you major points they still could be a value week in and week out. As we get closer to the start of training camp it is never to early to begin that fantasy team draft board. Remember the more you research your selections the better you will do each week.
