Green Bay Packers - 2015 Projections

Green Bay Packers

Overall Outlook
The Green Bay Packers are running their franchise, business as usual.  They made no offseason free agent signings from other teams, kept a few of their own important free agents in Cobb and Bulaga, and continued to build their roster through the draft.  Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy, Jordy Nelson, and Randall Cobb are all studs who will push Green Bay deep into the playoffs again in 2015.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: None 
Key losses: QB Matt Flynn, RB DuJuan Harris, WR Jarrett Boykin, ILB A.J. Hawk, ILB Brad Jones, ILB Jamari Lattimore, CB Tramon Williams, CB Davon House

Offensive Outlook
The Green Bay offense runs through Aaron Rodgers, a loaded WR core, RB Eddy Lacy, and a top five offensive line. The Packers offense will therefore use a nice balance of run and pass, which will ultimately produce plenty of fantasy points.  Additionally, the Packers will have three of their final five fantasy weeks against Chicago, Dallas and Oakland, giving those who own Green Bay skill position players a chance at fantasy football victory.

Projections - 2015
QB1 - Aaron Rodgers - Passing - 4600 yds / 35 tds - Rushing - 250 yds / 3 tds
RB1 - Eddie Lacy - Rushing - 1400 yds / 12 tds  Receiving - 40 recs / 325 yds / 4 tds
RB2 - James Starks - Rushing - 400 yds / 2 tds  Receiving - 15 recs / 125 yds / 1 td
WR1 - Jordy Nelson - Receiving - 95 recs / 1250 yds / 11 tds
WR2 - Randall Cobb - Receiving - 100 recs / 1200 yds / 10 tds
WR3 - Davante Adams - Receiving - 40 recs / 500 yds / 5 tds
TE1 - Richard Rodgers - Receiving - 45 recs / 500 yds / 3 tds

Defensive Outlook
The Dom Capers lead Packers defense ranked 15th in yards allowed per game, and 19th in points allowed per game in 2014. The 2015 group has some more talent, with draft picks Randall, Rollins, and Ryan in the mix, we expect a slight improvement in their overall numbers.  Look for Barrington and Ryan to take a step forward at inside linebacker, and if Matthews can stay healthy, he's always a threat for 15 sacks a season.

Projections - 2015
DE1 - Julius Peppers - 50 total Ts / 8 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 5 total TOs
DE2 - Mike Daniels - 35 total Ts / 4 sacks / 1 pass defensed / 2 total TOs
DT - B.J. Raji - 25 total Ts / 2 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 1 total TO
OLB1 - Clay Matthews -  80 total Ts / 14 sacks / 4 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
OLB2 - Nick Perry - 40 total Ts / 6 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
ILB1 - Sam Barrington - 110 total Ts / 2 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
ILB2 - Jamari Lattimore - 115 total Ts / 3 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
CB1 - Sam Shields - 50 total Ts / 0 sacks / 15 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
CB2 - Casey Hayward - 40 total Ts / 0 sacks / 12 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
S1 - Morgan Burnett - 125 total Ts / 1 sack / 6 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
S2 - Ha Ha Clinton-Dix -  95 total Ts / 2 sacks / 4 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
