PROJECTED 2014 SEASON STATS

2014 Outlook: The NFL's offensive rookie of the year in 2013 was this 230-pound ball of thunder with soft receiving hands who carried the Packers while Aaron Rodgers was out with a broken clavicle. Lacy's running style is reminiscent of Larry Johnson's, and you'll recall that LJ had a dominant fantasy stretch in the mid-2000s. In truth, Lacy has a combination of talent and every-down opportunity that could make him the No. 1 player in fantasy by season's end. The reason we don't quite rank him there? He's done it for only one season.
2. Jordy Nelson, GB WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2013 Statistics12685131415.58000173
2014 Projections12082128615.710000188
2014 Outlook: To understand why Nelson is such a boom/bust wideout, consider the discrepancy between his short and vertical fantasy productivity. Nelson ranked fourth among WRs in fantasy points on vertical throws (118) and tied for 31st on short ones (47). That's why he saw his production fall off a cliff when Aaron Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury. Nelson scored 14.1 fantasy points per game with Rodgers as a starter and only 6.6 per game the other weeks. As long as Rodgers is healthy and throwing bombs with his usual precision, Nelson has a shot at being a top-five WR.
3. Randall Cobb, GB WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2013 Statistics473143314.04478071
2014 Projections11387123314.28101230183
2014 Outlook: Last season was supposed to be Cobb's coming-out party -- and it was for a few weeks. Cobb was solidifying his role as Aaron Rodgers' go-to slot guy and put up three double-digit fantasy outputs in his first four games. But then he broke his leg in Week 6 and disappeared to IR until Week 17. So now we're left to guess how to properly rate Cobb going into his fourth NFL season. On one hand, his 11.8 points per start ranked ninth among receivers last season. On the other hand, he's played only 38 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps since coming into the league. You have to figure that'll increase ' if he can stay on the field.
4. James Starks, GB RBYEARRUSHYDSAVGTDRECYDSTDPTS
2013 Statistics894935.531089174
2014 Projections944024.33970065
2014 Outlook: Starks is a less agile, less explosive version of Eddie Lacy, so it makes sense that the Packers re-signed him this winter to back up their second-year star. More than anything, this transaction signals Green Bay's lack of faith in Johnathan Franklin, despite his potential as a nice change-of-pace receiving back. So if you make a first-round investment in Lacy, the handcuff you want is Starks, a more consistent player who's lost only one fumble in four seasons.
