Defense carries Packers in Week 16


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) With quarterback Aaron Rodgers playing through illness, the Packers offense wasn't up to its usual standards Week 17 at Tampa Bay, but the defense responded with one of its best performances of the season, allowing a season-low three points on a season-low 99 yards. The Packers had only one takeaway, an interception by Datone Jones late in the fourth quarter, but they set a season high with seven sacks.

It was only the fifth game with double-digit Fantasy points for the Packers DST, but it's scored 20 or more in four of those games. Since it's a feast-or-famine unit, you'll want to pay close attention to the matchups with it. Week 17 against Detroit may be a bit too risky.


Packers DST short on big plays again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) The Packers weren't bad defensively Week 15 at Buffalo, allowing 21 points on 253 yards, but their lack of big plays once again prevented their DST from being a real asset in Fantasy. Their three sacks were actually their most in four games, but they had just one interception and no fumble recoveries, giving them three total takeaways during that same stretch.

In the two games leading up to this disappointing four-game stretch, the Packers DST scored a combined 53 Fantasy points, but it also had seven sacks, seven takeaways and four touchdowns. More often than not, it gives up too many yards and points to survive without big plays.

Fortunately, it has an ideal matchup to get back on track Week 16 at Tampa Bay, a team that entered Week 15 having allowed the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to DSTs. The Packers DST might just be worth a shot in your league's championship game.


Packers place LB Jamari Lattimore on IR, promote Chris Banjo


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) The Packers have placed linebacker Jamari Lattimore (ankle) on injured reserve and promoted safety Chris Banjo from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster on Saturday, per Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. Lattimore's 2014 campaign ends with 38 total tackles and one interceptions in 11 games played.

Packers DST suddenly not so productive


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/9/2014) Over a six-game stretch from Week 5 to Week 11, the Packers averaged 1.5 interceptions and 3.2 sacks. They had one of each Week 14 against Atlanta, giving them a total of two interceptions and four sacks in their last three games.

Their defense underwhelmed in other ways against the Falcons, giving up 37 points on 465 yards. They hadn't allowed that many of either since Week 8 at New Orleans. Though the Packers DST has had some big performances this season, three straight games with less than double-digit Fantasy points makes it less than a sure thing even with a seemingly favorable matchup Week 15 at Buffalo.


Packers coach McCarthy: Sam Shields still has a chance to play


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2014) Packers cornerback Sam Shields was officially ruled as questionable for Monday night's game against the Falcons because of a concussion. Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Saturday that the medical staff informed him that Shields still has a chance to play. He'll likely need to be medically cleared by the staff prior to kickoff.

Packers hold their own against Patriots


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Packers defense mostly held up well, though they failed to make any big plays in a 26-21 win over the Patriots in Week 13.

The Packers held the Patriots to just 320 yards of total offense, though the Patriots did find the end zone on each of their three trips to the red zone. However, the Patriots had the ball for just under 23 and a half minutes, as the Packers' defense got a boost from an offense that stayed on the field often.

Still, the defense failed to come up with any turnovers in addition to just one sack, as the Packers DST unit finished with just 3 Fantasy points. The Packers have just 9 Fantasy points combined over their last two games, heading into Week 14 against the Falcons. 


Packers defense keeps on rolling with three touchdowns


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Packers DST unit put together another huge performance in Week 11, in a 53-20 win over the Eagles.

After recording three turnovers and one defensive touchdown in Week 10's blowout win over the Bears, the Packers' DST unit stepped it up Sunday. They came away with three DST touchdowns, including a punt return, interception return and fumble return for touchdowns. All in all, they held the Eagles to two late touchdowns in the win, while coming down with four turnovers and three sacks.

The Packers DST unit has racked up 53 Fantasy points over the last two games, besting their total from the previous four games combined. They will look to keep rolling in Week 12 against a struggling Vikings offense. 


Packers get Saints at their best


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) The Packers, who were coming off a stretch of five games in which they allowed an average of 17.4 points on 365.6 yards, weren't as effective on the defensive side of the ball in Week 8. Of course, they were facing the Saints in New Orleans, but that hasn't been the kiss death this year that it had been in past years.

The Saints woke up in this one, though, scoring 44 points on 495 yards. The Packers did record two sacks and recover a fumble, but they went without an interception after having nine during that five-game stretch.

This performance doesn't ruin the Packers DST in Fantasy. Obviously, it won't face an offense as good as the Saints' every week. But it shows it's less than an every-week option in Fantasy.

The Packers have a bye in Week 9 before returning home to face the Bears in Week 10.


Late touchdowns only blemish for Packers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Packers defense dominated in a 38-17 win over the Panthers in Week 7, but a couple of late garbage time touchdowns sullied their strong effort.

The Packers held the Panthers to just a field goal through three quarters, and allowed just 331 yards of total offense in the game. The Panthers turned the ball over once on an interception by Cam Newton, who was also sacked three times.

The Packers DST unit has scored at least 9 points in five straight games, and is now average 10.6 per game on the season. They will look to keep up the strong play in Week 8 against the Saints. 


Packers CB Davon House exits game with finger issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Packers cornerback Davon House suffered an injury to his finger in Week 7 against Carolina. House sustained the injury in the fourth quarter and was ruled questionable for the remainder of the game. He registered one tackle along with one defended pass.

Packers practice again without starting cornerbacks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Packers cornerback Sam Shields (knee) and cornerback Tramon Williams (ankle) were held out of practice for a second straight day Thursday. The Packers are preparing to play the Panthers in Week 7.

Packers say injuries to Shields, Williams, Lattimore not long-term


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) The Packers were bit by the injury bug defensively, with Sam Shields (knee), Tramon Williams (ankle) and Jamari Lattimore (neck) all going down with injuries in a Week 6 win over Miami. Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters in Monday's news conference that the injuries to his players are not considered to be long-term issues, per the team's official website.

The Packers will host the Panthers Sunday.


Report: Packers' Tramon Williams has 'no major damage' in ankle


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Packers cornerback Tramon Williams suffered "no major damage" to his ankle during Sunday's game against the Dolphins, a source told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He does have "some swelling" and the team isn't sure on a timetable for his return.

Packers short on sacks again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) After piling up six sacks in a dominant showing against the Vikings in Week 5, the Packers DST came back down to earth Week 6 at Miami, allowing 24 points on 349 yards. They did generate two turnovers, recording two interceptions and recovering a fumble, but they also had just one sack to give them seven in five games apart from Week 5.

Though the Packers have done a good job of limiting the points against them this year -- Week 6 was only the third time in six games they've given up even 20 -- their DST has been only so-so in Fantasy in part because of their lack of sacks. Take away those six in Week 5, and they're in the bottom third of the league.

The Packers DST is plenty good enough to start with the right matchup, but it has what figures to be a tough one with Cam Newton back to form Week 7 against Carolina.


Sam Barrington, Josh Boyd back at practice for Packers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Packers linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) and defensive lineman Josh Boyd (knee) both returned to the practice field on Wednesday after missing Week 5 against Minnesota due to injuries, ESPN reports.

The Packers will travel to Miami for a Week 6 showdown against the Dolphins.


Packers' Julius Peppers takes one back to the house


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Packers linebacker Julius Peppers scored his fifth career touchdown Thursday night at home against the Vikings in Week 5.

Peppers picked off Christian Ponder in the second quarter and took it 49 yards to the end zone for a touchdown, giving his team a 21-0 lead. Three of his five touchdowns have been interception returns. Four of his five scores have been from 40-plus yards. Peppers became the first player in NFL history to register 100 sacks and 10 interceptions in a career.

He registered three tackles, half of a sack and a pass defended in a 42-10 victory.


Packers rule Datone Jones out for remainder of Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) The Packers have ruled defensive end Datone Jones out for the remainder of Thursday night's game against the Vikings because of an ankle injury. Jones suffered the injury in the second quarter and was unable to return to action. He finished with a quarterback hit and no tackles before the injury.

The Packers will travel to Miami to face the Dolphins in Week 6.


Clay Matthews, Mike Neal, Brad Jones get the green light for Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Packers linebackers Clay Matthews (groin), Mike Neal (hip) and Brad Jones (quadriceps) have been ruled active for Thursday night's Week 5 showdown against Minnesota, per the team's official website. However, Jamari Lattimore has been named the starter ahead of Jones, who missed the previous three games with a quadriceps injury.

Packers a worthwhile play for Week 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Packers have more than held their own in tough matchups against the Lions and Bears over the last two weeks, racking up 21 combined Fantasy points. Things should get a lot easier in Week 5, with the Vikings on the schedule.

The Vikings might be down to their third quarterback this week, if Teddy Bridgewater's ankle keeps him out. Even if Bridgewater does play, however, he will be making his second NFL start just four days after suffering an ankle injury. If Bridgewater is limited, the Packers could feast on a one-dimensional offense that has struggled to run the ball before last Sunday.

The Packers' defense has improved in each game this season, and they will look to keep the trend going in Week 5. Consider them a solid starting option, worth picking up on waivers for this week.


Packers DST bends but doesn't break


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) The Packers made a couple of big defensive plays to keep the Bears offense at bay Week 4 at Chicago. The Bears had no problem piling up yards, finishing with 496 -- the most the Packers have given up in a game this season -- and yet they scored only 17 points.

Clay Matthews and Sam Shields each had a big interception and a big return in the second half, ending productive drives for the Bears and turning them into scoring opportunities for the Packers. Datone Jones also recorded a sack.

Though the Packers DST has been light on big plays so far this season, each week it has allowed fewer points than the week before. It has its most favorable matchup yet in Week 5, hosting the Vikings on Thursday night.


Packers defense holds Lions in check


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Packers DST turned in a solid performance Week 3 against the Lions.

The team did a solid job in the passing game, keeping Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson out of the end zone. The team was hurt by offensive turnovers. The Lions managed to run in a score after an Eddie Lacy fumble early in the contest. Reggie Bush scored the only offensive touchdown against Green Bay. 

The Packers had some success with turnovers and pressure. Outside of the two interceptions, Green Bay sacked Stafford twice, and forced one fumble.

They'll look for more next week against the Bears. 


Packers rule out just one on defense for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Packers unveiled their injury report for Week 3, and they don't have many question marks on the defensive side of the ball for Week 3 against the Lions.

Defensive back Micah Hyde (knee) is probable for Week 3, while fellow defensive back Casey Hayward is questionable with a glute injury. Linebacker Brad Jones is the only player ruled out on defense, as he deals with a quadriceps injury.  


Packers DST notches one turnover vs. Jets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Packers defense managed two sacks and one interception in the team's 31-24 win over the Jets in Week 2.

The defense intercepted a pass on its own three-yard line with less than two minutes left in the first half after hitting Geno Smith on a pass attempt. Smith was hit on another pass early in the third quarter that appeared to cause the ball to go backwards in the air, with the defense recovering the fumble, but the play was questionably overturned and ruled incomplete, leaving the Packers with the lone turnover. One of the team's two sacks came on the only Jets play of the game that featured Michael Vick at quarterback.

The Packers will head to Detroit to take on the Lions in Week 3.


Demetri Goodson overcomes concussion, cleared to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Packers defensive back Demetri Goodson has been cleared to play in Week 2 against the Jets, despite dealing with a concussion suffered in the preseason. He is officially probable for Sunday's game after getting through the week in practice without limitation. 

Brad Jones ruled out for Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014)  Packers linebacker Brad Jones has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Jets, as a result of a quadriceps injury that kept him out of practice all week. Jones was able to play through the injury in Week 1, but suffered a setback at some point since.
