Nov 19 - 1:27 PM

Brandon Bostick (hip) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Eagles.

Nov 12 - 2:48 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said he hopes to get TE Brandon Bostick more involved on offense the rest of the season.

"I like what Brandon's done the last couple of weeks," McCarthy said. Bostick has played just 20 offensive snaps this season after continuously being compared to Jermichael Finley over summer. But he wasn't practicing well and has had trouble picking up the offense. The Packers have been getting nothing from the tight end spot, with rookie Richard Rodgers struggling badly.
Nov 5 - 3:00 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday he "wouldn't be surprised" if TE Brandon Bostick got playing time in Week 6 at Miami.

The Packers are getting nothing out of Andrew Quarless and rookie Richard Rodgers. Bostick has been slow to pick up the offense, but easily has the best athletic profile in the group. Bostick should be on fantasy watch lists in 12-team leagues and is worth a look as a TE2 stash in 14- and 16-teamers.
Oct 10 - 12:59 PM

Packers TEs coach Jerry Fontenot confirmed Brandon Bostick doesn't have a full grasp of the offense, which is why he isn't playing on Sundays.

"I need to feel more comfortable with the things we're doing in practice," Fontenot said. "I need to see that he's making split-second decisions, the right decisions. We're still getting there." Fontenot said if Bostick could run all of his snaps out of the slot as a pass-catcher, then he'd be playing. But the offense calls for tight ends to do more, like block, play in-line, line up at fullback and out wide. Bostick doesn't have it down. He remains a Dynasty hold, but nothing else.
Oct 1 - 10:33 AM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said it sounds like TE Brandon Bostick's "practice habits have not warranted playing time."

Bostick missed Week 1 with a leg injury, and has been limited almost exclusively to special teams in the Packers' other two games. Bostick is the most athletic option in Green Bay's tight end corps, but will have to improve his consistency to earn meaningful snaps.

Brandon Bostick had two special teams penalties in the Week 3 loss at Detroit.

Richard Rodgers was benched in Week 3 for his disastrous blocking, yet Bostick still didn't play a single snap on offense. Coach Mike McCarthy did not make it sound like that will change, saying his players need to worry about their current roles first.
Sep 25 - 11:22 AM

Packers TE Brandon Bostick wasn't targeted in Green Bay's Week 3 loss to the Lions.

The Pack were reportedly "anxious" to get Bostick more involved this week, but it didn't happen. Bostick has more theoretical upside than Andrew Quarless, but remains well off the fantasy radar.
Sep 21 - 6:00 PM

Packers coaches are anxious to see Brandon Bostick get back on the field on offense.

Bostick fractured his fibula in the preseason and made his debut last week against the Jets. He didn't play any offensive snaps, but TEs coach Jerry Fontenot said "he's on his way. We're getting there." Andrew Quarless and rookie Richard Rodgers have been handling tight end duties, but have brought nothing to the table as pass catchers. Bostick is the best athlete of the group. Once he gets his legs back under him, expect Bostick to become a major part of the offense.
Sep 19 - 9:51 AM

Brandon Bostick got zero offensive snaps in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.

Bostick has some depth-chart climbing to do as he comes off a broken leg. Richard Rodgers played on 34-of-72 snaps Sunday and Andrew Quarless got 38 snaps. Bostick remains the Dynasty stash as the prospect with by far the most athletic ability of the trio.
