PPR Fantasy Football:
Green Bay Packers
New Orleans Saints
When hearing the names, fans immediately think of them as two of the greatest receivers in Green Bay Packers team history. In seven seasons together, wide receivers Greg Jennings and Donald Driver were fan favorites and top targets for Packer quarterbacks Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, combining for 839 receptions, 12,040 yards, and 86 touchdowns.
On February 12th, Driver retired from the Green Bay Packers. One month and four days later, Jennings signed a five year contract with the NFC North division rival Minnesota Vikings.
A double-dose of hard pills to swallow, Packer fans will remember Driver, the Packers’ all-time leading receiver, for his touchdown shimmy, wide-mouthed grin, and his 1st place finish on the popular television show “Dancing with the Stars”. Fans will remember Jennings’ knack for finding the endzone in addition to his incredible ability to gain yards after the catch (career 5.8 YAC), his clutch Super Bowl XLV performance (two touchdowns, 31-yard catch on 3rd dow...
BEST OF MAXIM
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says it’s “nonsense” that his team’s toughness has been questioned over the last several months. “I think it’s a load of nonsense because I think the proof is in the pudding. If you watch the tape and the film and you win 12 games a year
After being one of the most ineffective running teams in the National Football League in 2012, the Green Bay Packers made the running game a priority this offseason.To address this need, the Packers not only drafted Alabama running back Eddie Lacy in the second round but also traded up in the fourth round to selected UCLA runner Johnathan Franklin. While Lacy has generated a lot...
The Packers have gone to the playoffs four straight seasons and in five of head coach Mike McCarthy's seven seasons. And since scheduling plays a...
Desmond Bishop is gone. Brad Jones is in. A.J. Hawk? Well, he’s never left. For the Packers, that seems to be just fine at the inside linebacker position. For what Hawk might lack in creating impact plays, he makes up for by being counted on each week.
Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers may not be a fan of Magic Johnson on ESPN’s NBA Countdown crew.
Magic may have had the perfection combination of speed and size on the court, but his analyst kids are lacking in several departments.
Rodgers took to Twitter Friday to give his opinion on Magic’s post game analysis of the Heat’s championship clinching victory.
Free agent and former Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop has visited the Vikings.
Defensive coordinator Alan Williams said after minicamp practice Wednesday that Bishop went through a ''good workout'' with team officials. Williams deferred to general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Leslie Frazier about the possibility of signing the seventh-year veteran.
With the return of Sean Payton as coach in New Orleans, and the arms race going on in San Francisco and Seattle, the Green Bay Packers have quietly gone about their business this off-season. The Packers are not consensus pick among experts around the league, and as Rodgers told ESPN Milwaukee, he loves the “Packers [...]

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings confirmed former Green Bay Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop was in for a workout with the team, but the team says it is just doing its "due diligence" in checking out the former leading tackler for Green Bay.
Minnesota still has an undetermined spot open at linebacker, currently on the weakside after Erin Henderson's move...
Problems with Value Based Drafting
Value Based Drafting in fantasy football is essentially valuing a player to the extent he exceeds the baseline player at his particular position. For example, if Aaron Rodgers is projected to score 427 fantasy points, and in your 12-team league, the No. 12 QB (the baseline player), Robert Griffin, is projected to score 322 points, then Rodgers...
