Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett is getting more comfortable to the pace that Aaron Rodgers pushes on offense. What It Means: Bennett compared Rodgers' pace to "being on a fast break with the point guard." Adding, "I think it’s going to take time to learn, but there’s moments when he sees things and I see things." He turned 6 targets into 3 receptions and 43 yards in Week 1. numberFire's models have Bennett as our 9th-ranked fantasy tight end for Week 2, projecting him for 4.0 receptions, 42.4 yards and 0.4 touchdowns.

49ers-Seahawks preview: Looking at Seattle’s sacks vs. Packers in Week 1

49ers-Seahawks preview: Looking at Seattle’s sacks vs. Packers in Week 1

The Seahawks sacked Aaron Rodgers four times, and we break down the film in advance of their matchup with the 49ers in Week 1. The Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers played a fascinating game in Week 1. Both teams did well to stymie the other on offense, and ultimately a strong performance from Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels gave the Packers the win. Seattle generated four sacks against the Packers, while Green Bay had three sacks against the Seahawks. Neither team has a fantastic offensive line, while both have strong defensive lines. The Seahawks defensive line is downright...

Arrowheadlines: Everyone thinks this is Alex Smith’s last season ... is it?

Chiefs’ Alex Smith plans to play 5-7 more years and more we learned in this interview | Arrowhead Pride Bensinger shows Smith a video of Brett Favre on the program. Favre speaks about how it wasn’t his job to teach Aaron Rodgers at the beginning of his career. Bensinger asks for Smith’s reaction. “My job’s to go play and play well and help us win, flat out, and that’s my job. I owe that to my teammates,” Smith says. “I’m not going to go out of my way to be somebody I’m not, if that makes sense. I think all those things I went through when I was trying to do that, when I...

Here, he’ll give us an idea of how the Falcons might attack Aaron Rodgers When you think of the Green Bay Packers, the first name that currently comes to mind has to be Aaron Rodgers. If it isn’t, do you even football? Given his importance, in this piece we’ll take a look at how the Falcons should go about doing something nearly impossible on the average day: Stopping Aaron Rodgers from discount double checking all Sunday night, when...

Packers will continue to keep Randall Cobb involved

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb grabbed 9-of-13 targets for 85 yards in Week 1 and it appears he will continue to be targeted heavily out of the slot in future weeks. What It Means: Cobb got high praise from quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who said after the game that, "Randall is a great football player. He’s very reliable, he ran a number of great routes (against Seattle) to get open, and he just made some really heady plays for us.” Cobb might not see double-digit targets every week, but he is a fine play in year-long and DFS games for Week 2 against the Atlanta...

How Green Bay used crossing concepts to tangle the Seahawks’ pass coverage wires

At select opportunities Sunday, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers confused the Seattle secondary with man-beater patterns to earn key first downs The Seattle Seahawks defense deserves plenty of credit for holding the Green Bay Packers to 17 points in Lambeau Field Sunday. Most of the consternation after the loss was directed at poor run blocking and pass protection by Seattle’s offensive line, and the whole offensive unit’s inability to score any touchdowns all day—plus an extra dash of saltiness toward the officiating. Indeed, after an admirable first half shutout by the Seahawks defense...

Davante Adams catches just three passes in Packers' win

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams caught three passes for 47 yards as the team beat the Seattle Seahawks 17-9 in Sunday's Week 1 tilt. What It Means: Green Bay's receiving corps suddenly looks a lot more crowded this year with Randall Cobb back healthy and Martellus Bennett now in the fold. Adams received the third most targets from Aaron Rodgers in this one, drawing just one more look than Bennett. Still, since he plays in such a high powered offense Adams will have some big fantasy weeks throughout the season. One of those big performances could come next week versus...
