The 2011 version of the Green Bay Packers put up video game type numbers on offense. Led by Aaron Rodgers, the MVP of the National Football League, the Packers put up more points than any team in the league last season, which meant that Packers players proved to be a gold mine for fantasy football owners.
To put it simply, it was a good thing to own a Packer on your fantasy team. After all, Rodgers was the top ranked player in fantasy football and others such as Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings were elite fantasy options at wide receiver. Nelson actually finished second in fantasy points, behind only the immortal Calvin Johnson at wide receiver. In Point Per Reception scoring formats, Nelson finished fourth at his position.
Jennings would have easily been a top-10 receiver had he not missed the last three games of the regular season due to injury.
Tight end Jermichael Finley also ranked among the top-10 at his position, while James Starks, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver and James Jones were all decent contributors.
With the start of Packers training camp less than two weeks away, it is a great time to preview the fantasy value of each Packer. Who has relevance to fantasy football owners in regards to the 2012 NFL season?
