Speaking Thursday, walk-year WR Randall Cobb said he's yet to begin long-term talks with the Packers.

"I guess there's still more to do," Cobb said. "So, just continue to put my nose down every day and focus on getting the team into the playoffs, and doing everything I can to bring back the Super Bowl." Cobb is 12th in the NFL in receiving (1,076 yards), while his 10 scores are tied for eighth. ESPN's Rob Demovsky believes the Pack are more likely to re-sign Cobb than not.

Eddie Lacy (eye) remained limited on Thursday.

Lacy's health is not a concern for the fantasy finals. He's locked in as a top-five RB1 for Week 16.
Dec 18 - 2:29 PM

Eddie Lacy (eye) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Packers listed Lacy with an eye injury, so this isn't related to his hip issue. With 100 total yards in seven straight games, Lacy is locked in as an RB1 for Week 16 against the Bucs.

Aaron Rodgers is calling for the Packers to re-sign impending free agent Randall Cobb.

GM Ted Thompson faces a tough decision. He's already committed major dollars to Jordy Nelson, and then selected talented WRs Davante Adams and Jeff Janis in the 2014 draft, setting the team up for life after Cobb. But Cobb is one of the best receivers in the league, and Rodgers called it "important" to re-sign him following his first 1,000-yard season. Cobb will likely seek Victor Cruz money at the very least; five years and $43 million with $15.6 million guaranteed.

Andrew Quarless secured 1-of-4 targets for seven yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Bills.

Quarles is a minor part of Green Bay's passing game. He's a low-end TE2.
Dec 14 - 4:38 PM

Jordy Nelson secured 5-of-12 targets for 55 yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Bills.

Nelson got wide open on a double move late in the third quarter and would have had a 94-yard touchdown, but flat dropped it. Otherwise, he was bottled up by Stephon Gilmore and Corey Graham on the outside as Buffalo's cornerbacks stepped up for a great game. Expect Jordy to rebound at Tampa in Week 16.
Dec 14 - 4:37 PM

Randall Cobb secured 7-of-13 targets for 96 yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Bills.

He added three rushes for 15 yards. Green Bay unofficially had no explosive plays in the passing game until Aaron Rodgers hit Cobb up the middle off play action for a 20-yard gain midway through the third quarter. Cobb wound up leading Green Bay in receiving as Jordy Nelson struggled to get open against Buffalo's physical corners on the perimeter. Expect Cobb to keep eating when the Packers head to Tampa Bay for Week 16.
Dec 14 - 4:35 PM

Davante Adams secured 1-of-4 targets for six yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to the Bills.

He also had a second-quarter drop, although Aaron Rodgers' pass was a bit behind him. The second-round pick has flashed at times this season, but Adams will be a mere WR4 when the Packers take on the Buccaneers in Week 16.
Dec 14 - 4:32 PM

James Starks managed 19 yards on four carries with a ten-yard reception in the Packers' Week 15 loss to Buffalo.

Although reports indicated the Packers would use a 50:50 timeshare with Eddie Lacy nursing a bruised hip, Lacy went to halftime with 12 touches compared to Starks' 5. Starks didn't touch the ball in the second half, and Lacy was also far more effective than Green Bay's usual breather back. Entering a Week 16 date with the Buccaneers' Starks is just a handcuff to Lacy's RB1.
Dec 14 - 4:28 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 15 times for 97 yards and a touchdown and caught two balls for 11 yards in the Packers' Week 15 loss to Buffalo.

He's now gone over 100 total yards in seven straight games. Amid concerns regarding his Week 14 hip bruise, Lacy got the start and dominated Buffalo's defense in the early going. By the 14:14 mark in the second quarter, he had eight rushes for 72 yards and a touchdown. The Packers were forced to throw the football after falling behind, limiting Lacy's second-half rushing work. James Starks finished with just five touches to Lacy's 17. Lock in Lacy as an RB1 entering a Week 16 date with the Buccaneers.
Dec 14 - 4:26 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 17-of-42 passes for 185 yards and two interceptions as the Packers were upset by the Bills in Week 15, 21-13.

He posted a career-worst 34.3 passer rating in the defeat. Rodgers seemed not to be on the same page with his receivers early in the contest. They also hurt him with five first-half drops. Rodgers went to halftime 8-of-24 passing for 70 yards with five punts by Green Bay in the first two quarters, and was picked by a route-jumping Bills S Baccari Rambo late in the third. Rodgers had Jordy Nelson wide open for a would-be 94-yard touchdown bomb later in the same frame, but Nelson flat dropped it. Rodgers was picked again early in the fourth quarter -- again by Rambo -- on a tipped pass over the middle. It's no consolation for fantasy owners who were bounced in the semis, but we'd fully expect Rodgers to get back on track in Week 16 at Tampa Bay.
Dec 14 - 4:21 PM

Eddie Lacy is active for Week 15 at Buffalo.

Beat writers expect Lacy to share the workload with James Starks, but the Packers were hoping to divvy up the workload even before he suffered a hip bruise. Lacy is a borderline RB1 against a sagging Bills run defense. The Packers' Week 15 inactives are QB Scott Tolzien, CB Davon House, LB Carl Bradford, C Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, WR Jeff Janis, and DT Bruce Gaston.
Dec 14 - 11:38 AM

Packers placed LB Jamari Lattimore (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Lattimore didn't play last week and was already ruled out for Sunday's game. He had 38 tackles and an interception in 11 games (five starts). 26-year-old Lattimore will be a free agent this offseason.
Dec 13 - 3:31 PM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky expects there to be a 50-50 timeshare between Eddie Lacy (hip, probable) and James Starks Week 15 against the Bills.

Demovsky said the plan was to split work between Lacy and Starks even before Lacy hurt his hip late in the Packers' win over the Falcons on Monday night. In a tough matchup and with an uncertain workload, Lacy is more of an RB2 for the fantasy semifinals.
Dec 13 - 12:51 PM

Eddie Lacy (hip) is probable for Week 15 against the Bills.

Lacy is fine for Sunday, but coach Mike McCarthy hinted at a split between Lacy and James Starks in the backfield. Lacy gets a bump down the ranks for Week 15. He faces a tough run defense at less than 100 percent and in a likely time split. Lacy is our No. 10 running back for fantasy semifinals week.
