Fantasy Football 2014: 5 Green Bay Packers Players to Draft

The Green Bay Packers are one of the best offenses in all of football. The team averaged 26.1 points and 400.2 yards per game, eighth and third in the league, respectively. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a lot of options in the passing game and with the emergence of Eddie Lacy, the team is more balanced than ever before. While it's pretty obvious, here are the five Packers players to target in your fantasy draft.

Mason Crosby finished as the eighth-best fantasy kicker. While drafting a kicker shouldn't be a brain-racking decision, but there are still some to avoid based on their team. Crosby will have plenty of value as a member of the Packers. He finished with five double-digit games. He finished 11-for-15 from at least 40 yards. You shouldn't reach for any kicker, but keep an eye on Crosby towards the end of the draft.

Randall Cobb suffered a broken leg and missed 10 games during the 2013 season. Looking back, he started the season off great, catching 16 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns. With the loss of James Jones to the Oakland Raiders, Cobb is the clear No. 2 wide receiver for the Packers. He will enter the 2014 season fully healthy and should be drafted as a WR2 in the fourth round.

One of the surprises of the 2013 season was the excellent play from Eddie Lacy. He was the sixth-best running back at the end of the season, scoring 198 fantasy points. He scored five touchdowns in the final four games. Despite the Packers being a pass-heavy team, Lacy still racked up 284 carries and 1,178 yards. He was also effective in the passing game, catching 35 passes for 257 yards. Lacy will not make it out of the first round.

WR Jordy Nelson

Jordy Nelson finished the 2013 season with a career-high in receptions and yards, 85 and 1,314, respectively. This was the first season that Nelson started all 16 games after missing multiple games throughout his career with various injuries. If Nelson can remain healthy this season, he will finish as a top-five receiver. He is the clear-cut No. 1 receiver for the team and will be a Round 3 draft selection.

Since taking over as the starting quarterback, this was the first time Rodgers played less than 15 games. He missed seven games with a shoulder injury. However, in his nine games played, he threw for 2,536 yards with 17 touchdowns and six interceptions. No one should worry about Rodgers' shoulder and will be a top-three quarterback with a young receiving corps and a healthy offensive line.
