Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones was tied for the league lead with 32 broken tackles last season.
Huddle Up: His 16 rushing scores and 19 total touchdowns were also tied for the league lead in each category. Needless to say, Jones finally had that breakout season in his third year. Jones does everything you want in a fantasy back. He caught 49 balls for 474 yards and three scores as well as rushing for 1,084 yards on 4.6 yards per carry. He'll be a solid fallback option if you don't land Christian McCaffrey.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Devin Funchess received a one-year, $2.5 million contract, which includes a $1 million signing bonus, $1.2 base salary, $50,000 workout bonus and $15,625 each game active. The deal also contains another $3.75 million in incentives, bringing the max to $6.25 million.

Unrestricted free-agent WR Devin Funchess (Colts) is expected to sign an undisclosed contract with the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.
Huddle Up: A broken clavicle derailed any chance of a decent season for Funchess in his lone year with the Indianapolis Colts. There will be a big upgrade at quarterback after going from Jacoby Brissett to Aaron Rodgers. However, Green Bay will remain committed to the run, so expectations should be held in check, as if they weren't already for the plodding, big-bodied former Carolina Panther. Funchess has limited appeal in any setting, mostly because of his size, and he could emerge as a presence in the red zone. Draft him as nothing more than a late-round flier.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard was tendered at an undisclosed level as an exclusive rights free agent Tuesday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Lazard caught 35 of 52 targets for 477 yards and three touchdowns last season. He started three of his 16 games played and was one of few healthy and serviceable options along with Davante Adams for much of the season. He's a depth option when the Packers are at their best and is unlucky to have fantasy value entering the 2020 campaign.

Free-agent LB Christian Kirksey (Browns) agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal with the Green Bay Packers Monday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Kirksey had 138 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2017, and he could have a big impact again in Green Bay. If you play in an IDP league, and you're looking for an upside flex option, he could have some sizzle.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said Friday, March 6, that he wouldn't mind if the team drafted a quarterback this spring. 'I'm a realist; I know where we're at as an org and I know where I'm at my career,' Rodgers told ESPN Milwaukee. He added that it doesn't matter who comes in, 'I'm confident (he is) not going to beat me out anytime soon' but would like to bring in players who could 'come in and help us right away.'
Huddle Up: Rodgers, 36, remained a low-end QB1, but he just topped 4,000 passing yards (4,002) while throwing 26 TD passes and his 7.0 yards-per-attempt average matched the second-lowest season mark since he became a starter in 2008. Regardless, he figures to be the unquestioned starter in Green Bay for at least another season or two.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones' agent is scheduled to meet with the team and begin discussions on a new contract for Jones, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal.
Huddle Up: Jones, rightfully, is looking to cash in after totaling 1,558 yards and scoring a league-high 19 touchdowns while finishing 2019 as fantasy's No. 3 back. He's a no-doubt RB1 now entering his prime in Year 4.

Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby signed a three-year contract extension Saturday, Feb. 22.
Huddle Up: Crosby converted 22 of 24 field-goal attempts and 40 of 41 extra points in 2019. He'll turn 36 years old in early September but will remain a top fantasy option most weeks while kicking behind the high-powered Packers offense.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams will have his 2020 base salary increase from $735,000 to $2.147 million because of the NFL's proven performance escalator.
Huddle Up: Williams was involved in the running and passing game this season and finished with 713 total yards and six touchdowns. He likely will have a similar role next season and can be a weekly flex option in fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones will have his 2020 base salary increase from $735,000 to $2.147 million because of the NFL's proven performance escalator.
Huddle Up: Jones had a breakout season in 2019 and finished with over 1,500 total yards and 19 total touchdowns. He should receive plenty of touches again next season and will be selected in one of the first few rounds in fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a 'really, really good ' first year in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense, general manager Brian Gutekunst said Friday, Jan. 24, and the GM is looking forward to the encore in 2020. I'm really excited to see what he can do in Year Two,' Gutekunst said. 'I know Matt talks a lot about what Matt Ryan did in Year Two, the comparatives there. I'm really excited to see where him and the offense can go.'
Huddle Up: Rodgers threw for one more TD (26-25) than he did in 2018 but his passing yards declined by 440 yards as he finished 12th among fantasy QBs in terms of total points. Rodgers will turn 37 before next season ends but don't be surprised if he takes a jump into solid QB1 territory with a year in the system under his belt and the Packers expecting to add wide receiver and, possibly, tight end help this offseason.

Green Bay Packers TE Jace Sternberger impressed general manager Brian Gutekunst with his progress after he returned from the Reserve/Injured list late in the season. 'He can be one of those, as he develops, who can play from a lot of different places and be a matchup problem,' Gutekunst said Friday, Jan. 24.
Huddle Up: Sternberger, a third-round rookie, fell way behind by missing the first half of the season with an ankle injury, but he did catch a TD pass in the NFC Championship Game after failing to log a catch in the regular season. He could be a repeat member on preseason fantasy sleeper lists this summer, especially if the Packers part ways with veteran TE Jimmy Graham.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 17, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Lazard was not targeted in the Divisional Round playoff game but should see some targets this week against a tough San Francisco 49ers defense. He could be a possible flex option in fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams will line up from different locations in the formation in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19, QB Aaron Rodgers said Friday. 'I'm not sure if they (the 49ers) are gonna move (CB Richard Sherman) around, but we're for sure gonna move Davante around,' Rodgers said.
Huddle Up: Adams has been on fire of late, catching 35-of-53 targets for 472 yards and four TDs over his last four games, including an 8-160-2 line on 11 targets in Sunday's wild-card win over the Seahawks. Adams caught 7-of-12 targets for 43 yards and a TD in the Week 12 loss to the 49ers and the Packers will be looking for better numbers on the same general number of targets Sunday.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 16.
Huddle Up: Lazard played just 20 offensive snaps against the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional Round. He had caught four of eight targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in the regular-season finale and is a starting option if he's able to take the field.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 15.
Huddle Up: Lazard was held off the stat sheet last week but had a decent role in the passing game at the end of the regular season. He is not a strong fantasy option but could be a flex option in some leagues.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 10, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Lazard was targeted 17 times over the last two regular season games and posted 114 yards in those games. He should see a handful of targets this week but may only be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (shoulder) remained a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Williams hasn't had much upside while working as the clear No. 2 behind RB Aaron Jones. He can't be trusted Sunday, Jan. 12, against the Seattle Seahawks.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) practiced in full once again Thursday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: Lazard scored his third touchdown of the year in the regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions while catching four of eight targets for 69 yards. He has developed a steady floor when included in the starting lineup and is well worth starting in the game Sunday, Jan. 12, against the Seattle Seahawks.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: Lazard was targeted 17 times over the last two regular season games but was held to 45 yards or less in three of the last four games. Fantasy players probably can find better options and could be avoided in leagues.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Lazard emerged as the Pack's No. 2 WR with 17 total targets and nine receptions for 114 yards and a TD over the last two regular-season games, and he'll be a under-the-main-radar-screen fantasy option in the postseason.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (shoulder) participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Great sign for Williams and the Packers with the team's postseason opener still more than a week away. Expect Williams to play in the divisional round and assume close to his normal workload on short end of his backfield timeshare with Aaron Jones.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as doubtful for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Aaron Jones will receive most of the work at running back with Williams expected to miss the game. Jones has been one of the better running backs in the NFL this season and is a must-start option in all leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (shoulder) will not play in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Matt LaFleur.
Huddle Up: Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin are the only backs on the roster besides Aaron Jones, meaning Jones is primed to handle as much of a workload as he can handle and/or however much the Packers need him to assume. Green Bay is playing for a first-round bye, which would obviously allow Williams to get two weeks of rest if he needs it. Much like he was during the regular season, Williams will be a high-upside, low-floor flex option in fantasy playoff leagues.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had 14.26 million of his scheduled $19.5 million 2020 roster bonus converted into a signing bonus Friday, Dec. 27. The move drops Rodgers's cap hit for the 2020 season by $11.4 million, but he is still signed through the 2023 season.
Huddle Up: The Packers are 12-3 and in the hunt for the NFC's No. 1 seed, but it hasn't been a banner season for Rodgers, who enters Week 17 ranked 13th among fantasy quarterbacks. He now finishes against the Lions, looking for only his second 20-fantasy point-plus game since Week 8.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Lazard was targeted a season-high nine times last week but has posted at least 50 yards in only two games in 2019. Fantasy players likely will be able to find better options for their lineups and can keep Lazard on the bench.
