  1. I don't pretend to know what the Packers will do this offseason, but I have followed this team closely for a long time. This is my best guess what will happen. 1. Adams signs a 4 year 45 million dollar deal with Packers. 2. Packers ask Cobb to restructure. Cobb either signs a new deal averaging between $5-7M per or he gets released. (Edelman just resigned for 2 years at 5.5 per) 3. Jordy Nelson either plays out his contract year, or gets restructured. If he restructures, he will lose no year 1 money, and more likely add to it. But his yearly average will drop so that years 2 and 3 will be more at the 5/6 million/year level. Ensuring that he retires a Packer. 4. Packers draft a WR in Rd 2 in 2018.
  2. I think its noteworthy that Adams has beaten CBs deep multiple times in the last couple of weeks. Yes, he dropped two TD passes this past weekend, but his hands have been quite good overall. It's a tough matchup for the Packers passing offense, as the Vikings under Zimmer have been good vs Aaron Rodgers. The Packers Oline has been so good as of late though that Rodgers seems likely to have a good day. When that happens, Adams and Nelson are FF WR1s. Weather also looks much better this weekend. Forecast calls for 32 degrees and little to no wind at Lambeau. Much better passing conditions than the below zero wind chills last week in Chicago.
  3. Starks is no longer a competent NFL RB. He's looked washed up all year. Next to zero chance they bring him back. With Lacy its going to come down to what another team is willing to offer. I'd be shocked if the Packers went with a long term deal with him. I doubt they'd go more than 10 million on a 2 year deal. Shields and Peppers are done too. Shields will cost them $3.125M in dead money, but there's just no way they can count on him as a starter for 2017, and he's not worth the risk of the $9M they owe him for the year. Cutting him saves them $9M in cap space. Peppers is off the books for 2017 too. He's counting 10M in cap space right now. Starks' cap his for 2016 is $3.75M I'd also seriously think about trading or cutting Randall Cobb. He just hasn't been very good since signing that contract, and he's due to collect $9.5M in each of the next two years in salary and bonuses. It would be a bit of a painful $6.5M dead cap hit to take, but I'd much rather see Montgomery getting those targets. Cutting him this offseason saves them $6.25M on next years cap. That would add $15M to the $25M they are already under the 2017 cap with. Total of $40M. My first priority would be to sign Nick Perry. He's and Daniels have been our two best defenders. Then I'd approach Ha-Ha about an extension, and Davante Adams too. I'd also look a signing TJ Lang to a similar contract as Josh Sitton. $2M signing bonus, $7M per season. 3 years 21M. Pay as you go basically. They pretty clearly would need to prioritize CB, RB in the draft and FA.
  4. C'mon Nick. The Packers offensive line has been fantastic this year. The switch from Sitton to Taylor saved them a ton of $ and there has been no noticeable drop off. The line only started struggling when they had Don Barclay in there. He's awful. Now that they've given the job to Spriggs, they are back to playing great. Will be even better when Lang comes back. As for Adams, 11 games in and he's on pace for 84/1128/12. Stating that the gap between Adams and Allen Robinson has shrunk considerably is not outrageous. Adams has 20 less targets on the year, and has 185 more yards and two more TDs than A-Rob. He's also got 3 games superior to any put up by Robinson. I know Aaron Rodgers >>> Bortles, but A-Rob has certainly had his own set of issues this year with drops and general poor play. Adams has not looked as good this year as Robinson did a year ago, and I'd still take A-Rob over Adams, but as stated above, the gap is far narrower now.
  5. Agreed. He's awful.
  6. I'd agree there was little reason to start him going into Thursday night. I was just suggesting that he had actually played pretty well leading up to that game. It just got a bit lost in the shuffle given the bye, the concussion, and having one game vs the Vikings. (who have basically erased all WRs to date).
  7. I think Rodgers is going to lead the league in pass attempts going forward. Knile Davis is awful. James Starks looked done before he got hurt. I have no idea what Don Jackson has to offer at this point, but you'd have to be worried about putting him out there protection wise going forward. Montgomery won't last if they line him up in the backfield and run a normal offense. Remember back in the 90s when Holmgrens' teams couldn't run the ball at all? They used the short passing game in lieu of the run. IMO that is what were gonna see going forward. 56 is a ridiculous amount of pass attempts and I think that's an anomaly, but I can sure see them averaging close to 45. Last night that had the benefit of getting the passing game in rhythm. Let's hope that continues going forward.
  8. I used to think I knew what a floor was until I watched Julio's three game stretch recently. 1/16/0 12/300/1 2/29/0 I feel comfortable saying this: The Packers are gonna skew heavy to the pass going forward. They have no RBs. They will use the short pass in lieu of the run. Adams gets targeted frequently on short routes, although that is not the extent of his game. His game is not speed (although its not bad), its his ability to break ankles on his routes. Its also his leaping ability. Here's Adams targets to date: 7,7,2,8,3,16. The 3 target game was the game he left early due to concussion. With the increased passing I'm expecting, I think Adams can average 8-9 targets/game going forward. That should put him on the FF WR2 radar.
  9. Little misleading. He's been pretty good, just got concussed in week 6, and already had his bye Full ppr: 14.0 3.6 (Vikings) 10.3 Bye 19.5 5.4 (concussion) 38.2 28/350/5. On pace for 75/933/13
  10. Jordy isn't right. Not sure if it's a matter of time until he gets it back, or if the ACL permanently sapped him of his difference making ability. He can still play, but he doesn't command double digit targets anymore. Regardless, the Packers don't have a RB worth anything on their roster, and won't for the rest of the season. IMO Rodgers is gonna lead the league in pass attempts from here on out. There's gonna be a lot of dink and dunk passes to be sure. Still, I'm expecting Adams to be a big part of this passing game going forward.
  11. 2 years ago he was a rookie. Yes he was inconsistent as the #3 WR. Last year he had a high ankle sprain, and was mostly just bad.
  12. Adams was good week 5 vs the Giants. Got knocked out last week after a couple catches. It's not quite a trend yet, but he's displaying some good route running and improving his consistency.
  13. Well this part is certainly true, since you know, he's the consensus #1 overall player in dynasty.
  14. Kid is electric. IMO he's a back end RB1 for the rest of the season. Being left in for the 4 yard TD run near the end of the game is a great sign. Asiata will be a bit of a vulture, but McKinnon will get his chances inside the 5 too. Sure looks like the Vikings want to give him the ball about 20x a game.
