Packers DST can't corral Colin Kaepernick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Depleted by injuries, the Packers DST held up well for the most part against the 49ers in Sunday's playoff loss. But the unit could not contain quarterback Colin Kaepernick's running, dooming Green Bay.

Kaepernick ran seven times for 98 yards, more than half of San Francisco's 167 rushing yards. Green Bay gave up 381 total yards and 23 points.

Cornerback Tramon Williams picked off Kaepernick in the second quarter, his fourth interception this year. Linebackers Nick Perry and Brad Jones and defensive end Mike Daniels all registered sacks.

The Packers DST should be stronger in 2014 assuming top pass rusher Clay Matthews returns healthy from his broken thumb.


Packers record late interception to clinch postseason spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Packers were not at their best, but managed to squeak by the Bears in Chicago in Week 17.

Green Bay had a hard time containing Chicago's running game, as Matt Forte gashed the defense for 110 yards on the ground. The defense also allowed two touchdowns and 226 yards passing from Jay Cutler. The Packers sealed the victory after Sam Shields picked off Cutler in the end zone on the final play of the game. The defense sacked Cutler once, forced two turnovers and allowed 345 yards of total offense in a 33-28 victory.

Green Bay will host the 49ers in the first round of the playoffs.

Packers DST impotent in loss to Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Packers DST would have needed a score to become a viable Fantasy play Sunday against Pittsburgh. And they didn't get one.

All they accomplished was two turnovers - one interception and one fumble recovery. They allowed the Steelers to tally 38 points and rack up 343 total yards. And the one sack hardly made a dent.


Short boots define day for Mason Crosby


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Packers placekicker Mason Crosby didn't attempt anything beyond 22 yards Sunday against Pittsburgh. But that one was a field goal in the fourth quarter that cut the deficit to 31-24.

Crosby was perfect in five extra point attempts.


Week 16 not the time to trust Packers DST


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) The Packers DST hasn't been overly reliable for Fantasy owners in the second half of the season. Since Week 9, the Packers DST has scored more than 10 Fantasy points just twice and is averaging 8.4 Fantasy points per week over the last seven games.

Week 16 might not be the time to get brave either and put the Packers DST into active Fantasy lineups. DSTs average just 8.6 Fantasy points per week and no DST has scored more than 8 Fantasy points in the last six games against Pittsburgh.

The Steelers offense has been tough to slow down lately. Pittsburgh is averaging 28 points and 358.6 yards over the last seven games. 

Fantasy owners should look toward other alternatives over the Packers DST Week 16. Some other options include the Dolphins (@BUF), Lions (vs. NYG) and Chargers (vs. OAK).


Packers DST tallies three sacks, two picks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) The Packers DST scored no touchdowns Sunday in Dallas, but they did manage some points for Fantasy owners with interceptions in successive possessions late in the fourth quarter. They also managed three sacks.

Packers DST a lousy play at Dallas


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) There are a couple reasons to be encouraged by the Green Bay defense heading into their Week 15 clash in Dallas. They rank sixth in the NFL with 39 sacks and they are on a roll in turnovers with six in the last two weeks, exceeding their total from the previous eight weeks combined.

But that's not enough to make the Packers DST even a decent play this week. Their overall defense should struggle to keep pace with a Dallas offense that ranks third in the NFL in points scored (357) and in passing touchdowns (27) and boasts such weapons as quarterback Tony Romo, running back DeMarco Murray, tight end Jason Witten and wideout Dez Bryant.

The Packers have given up an average of 28.4 points in their last seven games and rank in the bottom half of the league in every passing and rushing statistic. The Cowboys are particularly explosive at home, averaging 34 points a game on their turf.

This DST is ranked no higher than 19th this week by the three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers and is not among the top 24 listed by Dave Richard. It's a bad option on the road against a powerful offense.


Packers have trouble with Vikings' rushing attack


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) The Packers defense had trouble slowing down running back Adrian Peterson and the Vikings' run game during a 26-all tie Week 12. The Vikings finished with 447 yards, including 232 rushing yards.

Peterson rushed for 146 yards and one touchdown, while backup running back Toby Gerhart finished with 91 rushing yards on just eight carries.

The Packers defense came away with six sacks and held Minnesota to three points in the fourth quarter, which allowed Green Bay to rally from a 16-point deficit to force overtime. Green Bay forced one turnover -- a Peterson fumble in the first half.

The Packers' next game is on Thanksgiving at Detroit (Week 13).


Packers DST a good Fantasy start Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) The Packers head into Week 12 vs. Minnesota riding a three-game losing streak, with their last win coming during a 44-31 victory Week 8 at Minnesota. Although the Packers surrendered 31 points Week 8, they held Minnesota to just 216 yards (133 passing) and 17 first downs.

The good news for the Packers defense is that they will be facing a banged up Adrian Peterson, who is playing at less than 100 percent due to a groin injury. Wide receiver Greg Jennings could also be out another week with an Achilles injury.

The Packers rank 18th in total defense (350.9 yards per game) and 18th in scoring defense (23.9 points per game). The Vikings rank 26th in total offense (317.7 ypg), but are a surprising 14th in scoring offense, averaging 24 points per game.

DSTs are averaging 11.1 Fantasy points per week against Minnesota and only two DSTs have scored less than 10 points. The Packers DST finished with 13 Fantasy points Week 8, despite Green Bay yielding 31 points in the win. The Packers DST is a viable Fantasy start Week 12.


Packers can't keep Eli Manning in check


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) The Packers had no answer for Eli Manning and Victor Cruz during Sunday's Week 11 loss against the Giants.

Manning carved Green Bay's defense for 279 passing yards, including a touchdown pass to Rueben Randle. Victor Cruz racked up 100 yards and Brandon Jacobs scored from 1-yard out in the third quarter. Manning was sacked four times and was picked off by Tramon Williams in the second quarter. Green Bay allowed 334 yards of total offense in a 27-13 defeat.

The Packers will look to get back on track in Week 12 at home against the Vikings.

Packers looking to get back on track


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) The Packers will be looking to get back on track on the road against the Giants in Week 11.

Green Bay surrendered 15 yards of total offense to Philadelphia in Week 10. They'll be squaring off against a New York offense that has passed for 242.3 yards per game and have one of the worst running attacks in the league, rushing for only 76.9 yards per game. However, the Giants welcomed back Andre Brown last week against the Raiders, as he gashed Oakland's defense for 115 yards.

The Packers will have to focus on containing the run, especially since they have allowed 106.7 yards per game on the ground, which ranks 13th in the league. Our Fantasy experts have the Packers ranked as high as sixth and as low as 14th this week. Fantasy owners should consider Green Bay as a decent option in most formats for Week 11.

Packers can't contain Nick Foles and Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) The Packers had a hard time containing Nick Foles and the Eagles during Sunday's 27-13 loss in Week 10.

Foles threw for 228 yards and three touchdowns. LeSean McCoy also gashed Green Bay's defense for 155 yards on the ground. Green Bay sacked Foles three times, including a strip-sack fumble recovery by Tramon Williams. The Packers allowed 415 yards of total offense to Philadelphia.

Green Bay will look to get back on track in Week 11 against the Giants.

Four injured Packers get the green light


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) The Packers have listed the following players on the injury report as active for Sunday's contest against the Eagles in Week 10: linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb), defensive lineman Ryan Pickett (knee), defensive lineman Mike Neal (knee) and linebacker Nick Perry (foot)

Packers ready to slow down Nick Foles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2013) Green Bay's secondary will be on alert heading into Sunday's matchup at home against the Eagles in Week 10.

The Packers will have to contain Nick Foles, who matched an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in Week 9 against Oakland. Green Bay has allowed 250.5 passing yards per game, which is the 13th most allowed this season. They'll also have to focus on slowing down LeSean McCoy, who has been held under 60 yards on the ground in each of his last three games. The Packers have allowed 94.5 rushing yards per game, which is the fifth fewest allowed in the league.

Our Fantasy experts have Green Bay ranked as high as 12th and as low as 15th this week. Consider them worth a look as possible bye week replacement option in deeper Fantasy formats for Week 10.

Packers DST gives up 442 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) The Packers DST seemed helpless to stop the Bears in Week 9, giving up 271 passing yards and two touchdowns to backup quarterback Josh McCown and 171 yards on the ground. Host Green Bay recorded one sack and no turnovers while yielding 27 points.

The defense let Chicago convert 6 of 14 third downs and allowed 5.2 yards per carry. It doesn't get any easier for the Packers DST, which faces Nick Foles and the Eagles in Week 10.


Packers DST going for sixth straight double-digit performance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) The Packers DST continues to produce despite the absence of top pass rusher Clay Matthews. The unit has posted double-digit Fantasy points in five straight outings entering Monday's game vs. Chicago.

The Packers DST scored its second touchdown last week when Micah Hyde returned a punt 93 yards against the Vikings.

Now Green Bay faces a Bears team starting backup quarterback Josh McCown. Still, this is not a cake matchup. McCown played well in relief of Jay Cutler at Washington, and he had a bye to get more comfortable as the starter. The Bears and their potent offense give up 8.1 Fantasy points per game to opposing DSTs, tied for 11th-fewest.

Consider the Packers DST a solid starting option Week 9, but don't expect McCown to faceplant.


Packers DST delivers again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) The Packers DST scored double-digit Fantasy points for the fifth straight time in Week 8. Micah Hyde's 93-yard punt return for a touchdown -- the unit's second score this season - highlighted the performance.

The punt-return score tied for fourth-longest in team history.

Green Bay sacked Minnesota's Christian Ponder three times and allowed only four completions to wide receivers. The Packers did not force a turnover, but they held the Vikings to 243 total yards.

The Packers DST will look to stay hot Week 9 vs. Chicago.


Packers DST performs well against Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2013) The Packers DST has become a viable Fantasy play in recent weeks. Their improved run defense has let to strong outings.

Neither their defense nor special teams scored Sunday against Cleveland, but the former held the Browns to 216 total yards and 13 points while recording three sacks and an interception. That certainly bodes well for the near future, particularly Week 8 against a mediocre Minnesota offense.

Most encouraging were the performances of defensive backs Davon House and Sam Shields, who combined to hold top Browns wideout Josh Gordon to two catches for 21 yards.


Mason Crosby bats .500 on field goal tries


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2013) Packers placekicker Mason Crosby couldn't hit the long one Sunday against the Browns, but was perfect otherwise. He missed a 52-yard field goal attempt to kill the first possession of the third quarter, but did make a 26-yarder in the second quarter and all four extra points in the win.

Green Bay totals five sacks during Week 6 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) The Packers held Baltimore to 47 rushing yards Week 6, which helped Green Bay escape with a 19-17 win. Baltimore finished with 360 yards (313 passing).

The Packers kept Baltimore off the scoreboard in the first half and gave up only a field goal through three quarters. The Ravens' offense then sprung to life in the fourth quarter, as quarterback Joe Flacco threw two touchdowns.

The Packers did have five sacks, including three from linebacker A.J. Hawk. Green Bay forced just one turnover (fumble) in the win.

The Packers are back in action Week 7 vs. Cleveland.


Packers ready to move on without star linebacker


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2013) The Packers might be down outside linebacker Clay Matthews to a thumb injury heading into Week 6 at Baltimore, but that doesn't mean the Ravens will be taking the Packers' defense lightly.

"First of all, it will be the same defense structurally," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said on his Wednesday conference call. "Dom Capers is tremendous and he’ll put a great game plan together to attack the things that we do, so they’re very challenging just from that standpoint. We expect to see the same very talented, very aggressive defense."

The Ravens are making sure not to give the Packers any added incentive to be fired up Sunday, so they are showing their respect through the media, even though the Packers defense has been less than stellar. The Packers rank 19th in total defense (374.8 yards per game) and 17th in scoring defense (24.2 points per game).

The Ravens have had their issues with consistency on offense, ranking 21st in total offense (330.8 ypg), but they have been much better at capitalizing on opportunities, ranking 14th in scoring offense (23.4 ppg). 

The Packers DST has been a disappointing Fantasy option, totaling 42 points, which is the eighth-lowest total in Fantasy. Week 6 is not the easiest matchup for Green Bay, so consider the Packers DST at best a No. 2 Fantasy option.


Packers have big day against Lions


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2013) The Packers had plenty of time to plan for their Week 5 game against the Lions (coming off a Week 4 bye), and it showed, as Green Bay sacked Matthew Stafford five times en route to a 22-9 victory. 

The Lions seemed to be in disarray all day -- likely fallout from Calvin Johnson being declared inactive with a knee injury before the game. No Lions receiver had more than four receptions, and none offensive player (outside of Stafford) went over 70 total yards. 

The Packers now have nine sacks in their last two games. While they don't intercept a lot of passes, they could do some Fantasy damage with sacks and by preventing their opponents from reaching the end zone. 

They're still far from a top Fantasy option -- and they definitely got a boost with Johnson being out -- but the Packers could be a decent streaming option against the right opponent. 


Mason Crosby goes deep in Week 5


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2013) Packers kicker Mason Crosby converted five field goals in Sunday's 22-9 win over the Lions. Crosby hit from 26, 52, 31, 42, and 45 yards. It was the second consecutive game where Crosby converted three or more field goals and the first time he had gone over 50 yards this season. Crosby now has four field goals of 40 yards or more. 

Crosby and the Packers face the Ravens in Week 6. 


Packers DST not worth a Fantasy roster spot


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/3/2013) Things have not been especially great for the Packers this season. They rank 26th in Fantasy points, with 29. They have just two interceptions and seven sacks, which put them near the basement in each category. And they face the Lions in Week 5 -- a prolific offense that will have a healthy Reggie Bush spearheading their attack. 

If there's hope for the Packers, it's that they've had a week to prepare for the Lions, as they are coming off their bye. But that probably isn't enough to recommend them as a DST in anything but the deepest (20-plus teams) of leagues. 


Packers need a kick returner


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2013) The Packers can use their off week to find a new kick returner after they released Jeremy Ross on Monday. Would they consider re-installing Randall Cobb as the primary returner?

"We haven't discussed that," special teams coach Shawn Slocum told ESPN.com. “Our game plan will dictate that.” 

Rookie running back Johnathan Franklin is another possibility. “We’ll put someone out there that can function and do the job the right way,” Slocum said.
