Post when the season started, but here we are. At
Well Youth Randall Cobb Jersey , this isn’t where the Packers wanted to be 3-4-1, the Packers haven’t only been frustrating on the gridiron, but in fantasy football matchups as well. Outside of Davante Adams, it’s tough to get any consistent points out of these guys.Many have pointed to Mike McCarthy (myself included) at times for the stale offense and having the weapons. They have the quarterback, the running back and a stud wide receiver, so they should be able to move the ball effectively. It’s about to be Week 10 and eventually your identity for the season is just already set. The fantasy playoff stretch is around the corner so let’s take a close look at who’s trending up and who’s trending down after Week 9.Stock Up: Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WRMVS only brought in three catches, but boy were they exciting to behold. Including a catch where he climbed the ladder on a 3rd and 1 play that felt like a sneak peek of things to come. His three catches were good for 101 yards and while he didn’t find the end zone Youth Mike Daniels Jersey , it was nice to see him take a step to grab the WR3 spot and possibly become the number two option. His six targets were a great indicator for the future and Geronimo Allison is likely taking a trip to injured reserve. The Packers have been finding themselves down in a lot of games recently, so the passing opportunities could be available. Jimmy Graham, TEThere weren’t a lot of bright spots through this game, but watching Graham find the end zone was good to see. Bringing in four catches for 55 yards, Graham was used as the big target the Packers envisioned he could be. Where Graham has struggled in the offense is making plays after the original play breaks down. Aaron Rodgers’ bread-and-butter is making plays after all the reads have been exhausted. Davante Adams looks like the only one who has the knack for making those plays, which does come with time and reps alongside Rodgers. Keep an eye out to see if Graham puts in those effort plays after he’s done running his route or is double-teamed. Stock DownAaron Rodgers, QBGot to call it when you see it. What was expected as a firework battle between two Hall of Fake quarterbacks, turned into a battle of other players failing to show up in prime time. Rodgers was 24-for-43, but it’s disconcerting watching him throw the ball out-of-bounds when no one can get open. And far too often Youth Kenny Clark Jersey , no one can get open. If he had three Davante Adams to throw to, then that’d be great! But until the offense becomes a little more imaginative, it’s going to feel like Rodgers is a tiger locked in a zoo. Randall Cobb, WRFor those hoping Cobb would come back with some flex value, they were largely disappointed. Cobb looks like he’s athletic enough, but the ridiculous ways in which the Packers try to get the ball in his hands isn’t going to amount to a lot of production. He had five catches for 24 yards on six targets. His Week 1 game against the Bears was definitely the outlier and the rookie wide outs are starting to earn targets that would normally be reserved for the veteran. As of this week, the Green Bay Packers are on the outside looking in at the NFC’s playoff seeding. Yes, we’re only five weeks into the year, but it’s still not too early at this point to start trying to imagine how things will stack up down the stretch in December.However , the current projections aren’t encouraging, particularly given the team’s loss to Detroit on Sunday. One projection system says the Packers are slightly better than a coin-flip to make the postseason — that’s Football Outsiders, who puts Green Bay’s odds at 51%. That’s down about ten percent from a week ago, but it also is the fifth-best chances in the NFC and the second-best of any team not currently leading its division. (That is because all four NFC East teams are under 50% and have less than a 10% chance of making it in as a Wild Card).However, as you’ll see in today’s curds, one other projection system has the Packers on the outside looking in after week five’s results. Is it too early to make sweeping judgments about who can make the playoffs? You bet — remember that everyone wrote off the Packers after going 4-6 to start the 2016 season. But it sure would have been nice to have an extra win last week.Stitched-up Kevin King looks to get back at it | Packers.comKing wanted to get back in the game after taking a Golden Tate cleat to the face in the fourth quarter on Sunday, but the trainers didn't let him back on the field. Thankfully it doesn't appear like the injury will keep him out this coming Monday against the 49ers.Green Bay Packers' rotation at running back makes no sense | Packersnews.comPackers fans can perhaps take some solace in knowing that the team's longest-tenured beat writer is with them instead of Mike McCarthy on the Aaron Jones question.Playoff Projections: Chiefs, Rams virtual locks in early race, Packers on the outside looking in - CBSSports.comCBS currently projects the Packers to be behind the Seahawks and Panthers in the race for a Wild Card spot Youth Kevin King Jersey , but a head-to-head win over Seattle in week 11 would probably do the trick based on the overall projections.The Packers Are Worse than Bad - They're Irrelevant | The Power SweepGiven the above projection, I don't think I personally agree with this evaluation of the team's chances -- I think they still have the ability to be a good, even a very good team -- but I'll admit it's definitely a possibility.Colts Lineman Matt Slauson Played Almost An Entire Half With Two Broken Vertebrae | DeadspinThis is terrifying - Slauson played every snap of Sunday's game despite suffering an unknown injury early in the third quarter. An evaluation after the game showed a pair of broken bones in his spine. Let's be grateful on his family's behalf that he didn't injure that area further.Fat Bear Week: Beadnose is Katmai National Park’s fattest bear - VoxDon’t expect many articles here at APC supporting bears, but as someone who spent time in Alaska this summer, I have soft spot for the real ones (not the ones from Chicago). This is one of the most heartwarming competitions you’ll see (unless you’re a salmon). Photographers and bear trackers check in to see which bears have gained the most weight during salmon runs in preparation for hibernation, and bear number 409, aka “Beadnose,” is this year’s winner.
