Five Bold Predictions for the Green Bay Packers

Chris Gallagher | May 11th, 2020

The Green Bay Packers endured a lot of success in the 2019 season, although a little luck fell their way also. The Packers achieved a record of 8-1 in one-score games and had to make several plays in the final moments of games to seal victories. This strong record in these games ultimately led to an NFC North division title and a first-round bye. The Packers were able to knock off the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau in the divisional round of the playoffs; however, their luck finally ran out in the NFC Championship game against the formidable San Francisco 49ers. The Packers were run off the field and embarrassed by the 49ers, losing 37-20 and giving up 285 rushing yards in a game that was never close.

Fantasy Football: Veteran Winners and Losers Post-Draft

Mason Thompson | May 2nd, 2020

The draft has come and gone and some teams have improved while some have, well let’s just say tried their best. Of course, teams try to improve their roster, but fantasy football owners also watch where players go and how they impact other player’s situations. I will take a look at the veteran players who won from their team’s drafts, as well as some players that lost fantasy impact.

The Packers drafting Jordan Love: Smart Move or Wasted Pick?

Cody Flavell | April 24th, 2020

On Thursday night, the Green Bay Packers shocked the world by trading up to select Utah State quarterback Jordan Love with the 26th pick in the NFL Draft. It seems safe to assume none of the teams in front of them needed a quarterback. However, when teams have a target they covet, they aren’t shy about making moves to assure they get them.

Analysis of How Record-Breaking Contracts have Inflated the QB market

Nickolas Loza | February 19th, 2020

As of 2020, there are currently six quarterbacks according to OverTheCap that are being paid upwards of $30,000,000 annually. Those QB’s are Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers, Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, and Matt Ryan. Obviously, all of these quarterbacks have done something to earn their contracts, but what got us to this point where quarterbacks are demanding upwards of $30M dollars? This is what I’ll be analyzing today in this article. We’ll go over the highest paid Quarterbacks since 2014, and which record-breaking signings really broke open the market. These contracts factor in original signing bonuses into the first year of the contract, so they may seem a little suspect in the drops from year to year.

John Lepore | January 19th, 2020

The San Francisco 49ers will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 6:40pm ET this Sunday. It will be a battle of the top two seeds in the NFC. They have met six times in the playoffs, the last being in 2012 when Colin Kaepernick was celebrating a 45-31 Niners win. Let’s take a look at the keys to victory for each team.

The NFL’s Veteran Quarterbacks and What’s Next for Them

Nickolas Loza | January 16th, 2020

The NFL’s most experienced quarterbacks are getting older, with that being said, the new era quarterbacks get ushered in like Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes, Houston Texans Deshaun Watson, and Baltimore Ravens Lamar Jackson. But we aren’t focused on the young guns today, we’re focused on the grizzled experienced vets who’ve been in the league for a long time, specifically any quarterback who’s older than 35. I’ll go over what the future holds for them and what could happen to them. To be covered they also have to be relevant and have the possibility to play in a big role next season. Continue reading

Detroit Lions Week 17 Recap- The End Describes The Season

Tom Greene  | December 30th, 2019

If you’re a Lions fan (or, at least, have read my recaps throughout the season), you know this story all too well. Having another lead during the game, only to see it slip away in the end. A 23-20 defeat puts a cap on a 3-12-1 season, one that started filled with optimism only to end with the third pick in the draft.

As for what the Lions should do with said third pick, we’ll inform you about that later. For now, here are the three things to look at from this game, one where both teams knew their fate.

Detroit Lions Week 16 Recap- The Nightmare Is Almost Over

Tom Greene  | December 23rd, 2019

Indeed it is. With one game left, Lions fans must feel like they are going through hell. Or, at least, compared to expectations at the start of the year. A 27-17 loss to the Denver Broncos has brought the Lions record to 3-11-1… which could also be a recipe to an alcoholic drink. Lions fans have probably consumed a lot of those this season. Plus, while playing Denver, Orange Crush could be a drink of choice.

Monday Night Football Week 16

Brandon Braasch  | December 23rd, 2019

With the Los Angeles Rams losing on Saturday night, the Minnesota Vikings are locked into the playoffs. However, they could still win and move into the 1st wild card spot or even win the NFC North with some help. The Green Bay Packers are still alive for a first-round bye. Here are my top players and game predictions for tonight’s final Monday Night Football game.

Detroit Lions Week 13 Recap- Elimination.

Tom Greene | December 2nd, 2019

Yes, you read that right. At 3-8-1, the Detroit Lions have become the first team in the NFC to be eliminated from playoff contention. This brings another two questions to my plate that came a lot sooner than I’d anticipated. “What’s the point of the last four games? What’s the point of these recaps now?”

Those questions will be answered in the three recap points. Simply put, the Lions went from a 2-0-1 team that showed some promise to a 3-8-1 team that’s looking for its identity again. Whether you’re a player, coach, front office member or fan, going 1-8 in a nine-game stretch is never fun. Let’s look at the three points.

In this article, we will discuss the current MVP candidates and their chances of winning.

The Walsh Way – Week 7 NFL DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | October 19th, 2019 

All my plays are based on DraftKings pricing. Its also important to note that when I list a player as a fade, I do not mean I will have 0% of them, but I will be way under the field as far as exposure goes, and likely will not play them on single entry lineups.

Detroit Lions Week 6 Recap- Oh Me, Oh My!

Tom Greene | October 15th, 2019

If you’re reading this, you’re in a mood. Either an amazing mood, as the Packers walk away with a 23-22 victory over the Lions, or a mood as only Stephen A. Smith could describe, which is the mood of most Lions fans-including yours truly. We feel like the Herman’s Hermits line that was in this title, “Oh me, oh my”, we’re Leaning on the Lamp Post. It’s something that happens year after year with this team. From the batted ball against Seattle to the 10-second runoff against Atlanta, and do I even mention the picked up pass interference flag against Dallas in the playoffs? The list goes on and on.

Detroit Lions Week 4 Recap- Chiefs Outduel Lions

Ah yes, it was a duel of top-tier QBs in Detroit this afternoon. Matthew Stafford took on Patrick Mahomes in a battle that Lions fans won’t forget, but may want to. A day that looked promising early, and even late, turned for the worse as Darrel Williams crossed the goal line to seal the deal for the Chiefs. Continue reading

Mike Fanelli | September 26th, 2019

In tonight’s game, the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Green Bay to take on the 3-0 Packers in a game some are calling a must-win for the Eagles. Unlike the past few Thursday Night games, this one should be entertaining and very fantasy friendly. There are several players I would feel comfortable playing in tonight’s game but first let’s take a look at my predictions from last week.

NFL DFS – Week 1 Thursday Showdown Slate (GPP Picks)

Joey Ricotta | September 5th, 2019 

DraftKings really outdid themselves for this opening Thursday showdown slate. As soon as I went to the lobby, I saw, right at the very top of the page, the $10 entry $2.5 Million Kickoff Thursday Millionaire Tournament. It’s a 150 Entries Max Multi-Entry Tournament. The contest pays out the top 62,500 lineups with the top prize winning $1 million. What better way to kickoff the NFL season than a Chicago Bears versus Green Bay Packers rivalry game and a whole bunch of money up for grabs. So, as we will be doing all season long here at The Scorecrow, let’s dive into some of my favorite options for tonight’s game.

Fantasy Battle: Deshaun Watson vs Aaron Rodgers

Joshua Abbe | August 29th, 2019 

With the shocking retirement of Andrew Luck, the quarterback position has thinned a little bit at the top of the draft board. In this fantasy battle, I’m looking at two players who should be targeted at their ADPs if fantasy players want a top quarterback. Deshaun Watson and Aaron Rodgers are two of the best fantasy quarterbacks in the league. According to Fantasy Football Calculator, Watson is being drafted at pick 5.03 as the QB2 while Rodgers is going pick 5.11 as the QB3. So let’s dig a little deeper on who I favor.

Top 12 Fantasy Quarterbacks: Hall of Fame Week Edition

Mike Fanelli | July 28th, 2019

The 2019 NFL season is almost here! Well, the preseason at least. The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is just a few days away. The regular season is a little more than five weeks away, but football is back baby! Of course, that means redraft fantasy leagues will be drafting left and right over the next month or so. With that in mind, here are my top 12 quarterbacks for the 2019 season.

Green Bay Packers 2019 Season Outlook

Dale Money | July 28th, 2019

After a forgettable 2018 season, that along with costing longtime head coach Mike McCarthy his job ended with a mediocre 6-9-1 record and another missed playoff opportunity. They didn’t stand on ceremony, having made a lot of changes in the offseason. The first order of business was filling that vacant head coaching position. Continue reading

Green Bay Packers Season Review

Zach Gotlieb | February 6th, 2019

As Stephen A. Smith says about Aaron Rodgers, “he’s a baaaaaad man.” This season for the Packers was a baaaaaad season. That might be a little exaggerated just based on record; however, their quarterback is Aaron Rodgers, they have to do better than 6-9-1. At worst, they need to be in the hunt at the end of the year. That just wasn’t what happened. Instead, of playoff conversations, there was just controversy.

How the QB position has changed: ’02-’18

Nickolas Loza | January 22nd, 2018

Now we’re getting to the juicy bits, all the prolific passers of this era have really changed things for the future of the NFL. Teams are now passing more than ever and running less than ever, like in 2011 when teams that year on average passed 105 more times than they ran the ball, and in 2012, when teams passed on average 120 more times than they ran the ball. The times had changed very noticeably.

What is Going on with Aaron Rodgers?

Matt Woolsey | November 29th, 2018

What is going on with Aaron Rodgers? Not just in fantasy, but in the NFL as well. He has always been in the discussion of who is the G.O.A.T. but this year he is not playing up to his standards. I know the excuse can be made for the Packers having young receivers, and he really misses Jordy Nelson. But Rodgers has always had the ability to elevate the talent around him.

Week 7 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | October 18th, 2018

Has anyone noticed that my “boom” plays go boom a week or two after I feature them? So unfortunate in the timing. Albert Wilson, c’mon man! Went off this past week. And don’t even get me started on Mason Crosby. Recommended him last week, and he saw plenty of opportunities and missed everything. If he hit all 6 of his kicks including his extra point attempt he would’ve had 21 points. 21. From a kicker. Then he goes and scores 17 against the Niners the next week.

Early Round QBs are the Death Sticks in Fantasy Football.

Matt Woolsey | September 2nd, 2018

Remember in “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones,” when Obi-Wan walks into the bar and the drug dealer asks him if he wants some death sticks? Obi-wan tells him to go home and rethink his life. Drafting quarterback before round ten is like death sticks, you need to go home and rethink your life.

Green Bay Packers: 2018 Season Preview

Robby Messer | August 30th, 2018

Opening day is approaching in the NFL and every team can look at it with the same amount of optimism.  For teams in the NFC North, that optimism needs to be taken with the same amount of concern as many of them hope the young players mature quickly and the injury bug doesn’t sink their season. Such are the hopes for the Green Bay Packers.
