With the Super Bowl still to be played, a lot of football fans are not quite getting ready for 2014 just yet. However, some Green Bay fans are preparing for fantasy football next season after the bitter ending this year. So how will the top options produce once things start up again next fall?
Green Bay was able to make the playoffs despite Rodgers missing
playing time thanks in large part to rookie Eddie Lacy. The running
back had to deal with some injuries in 2013, but he was able to stay on
the field long enough to be one of the most productive young offensive
players in the game. After finishing well within the top 10 running
backs in fantasy football in 2013, expect him to be drafted anywhere from 5-10
Jordy Nelson was once again a popular target for Aaron Rodgers in
2013. When Rodgers went down with an injury, Nelson’s fantasy
football value went down as well. However, this could just open up an
opportunity for people to steal Nelson a bit in 2014. His numbers might
not suggested it, but he is still easily a top 10 wide receiver.
The Packers might not have the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL,
but they do have some nice fantasy football pickups who could all be
considered underrated heading into 2014. This offense has a chance
to be one of the best ones in the NFL, so try and target any of these 3
players fairly early on in the draft and you should be well rewarded at
the end of the season.
