Fantasy Football Impact of the Green Bay Packers in 2012
Next in line for Fantasy Football Impact analysis where we break down each teams fantasy football value, is the Green Bay Packers who are loaded with offensive talent that will go early in your fantasy draft pool.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers ( discount double check ) will be the first QB taken in many NFL Fantasy Football leagues around the world. In 2011 Rodgers threw for an insane 4,643 yards, 45 touchdowns to only 6 interceptions. Being one of the best in the game today with that deadly of a receiving corp he will probably not slow down in 2012.
Jordy Nelson was Rodgers greatest receiving option last year with 68 receptions for 1,263 yards and a high 15 touchdowns. Greg Jennings who missed three games had 67 catches for 949 yards and 9 scores. Jermichael Finley emerged as one of the best tight ends in the league in 2011 with 55 receptions for 767 yards and 8 TD’s.
The Green Bay Packers do not have a good running game and have resorted to James Starks and Ryan Grant sharing carries. Neither eclipsed 600 yards on the season and both combined for only 3 touchdowns. There is little to no fantasy value on the Packers in terms of runningbacks, John Kuhn led the backfield in touchdowns with only four and had 155 total yards on the season.
The other side of the ball for Green Bay is one to look at in Fantasy Football leagues where you draft a defense. They rack up interceptions and sacks putting up decent points for your team.
Breakdown: While they do not have a premier runningback going early, Aaron Rodgers is good enough to warrant a first round selection. Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings will both be gone anywhere from round two to three, and Jermichael Finley maybe the better TE option and gone in the third round.
