The third option in Green Bay’s potent passing attack is second-year man, Davante Adams.  I believe in the logic of taking pass-catching options where elite quarterbacks reside, so Adams is a solid late-round pickup when you’re filling out your roster and looking for depth.  As a rookie he was targeted 66 times, bringing in 38 receptions for 446 yards and three TDs.

Obviously with Nelson and Cobb in the mix, Adams isn’t someone who we expect to breakout in 2015.  He is a good player to have on your roster, however, just in case either one of Green Bay’s lethal receiving tandem falls victim to injury.  He’s a WR5.

Andrew Quarless, TE

Considering the weapons the Packers have at WR and RB, the lack of a dynamic threat at TE isn’t that big of a deal.  Quarless has been serviceable and put up 29 catches for 323 yards and three touchdowns last year, so he can give you something on occasion.  He’s not someone to look for on draft day but could be a plug-and-play option later in the year if you need him.  At this point it appears his recent gun-related incident hasn’t impacted his standing with the team.

Ty Montgomery, WR

To the surprise of many, the Packers in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft selected WR Ty Montgomery out of Stanford.  With the aforementioned stacked receiving corps, it’s not likely at all for Montgomery to have the type of impact that registers with fantasy football owners.  He’s a waiver wire target if, and only if, the other Packer receivers spend significant time on the sideline.

And that’s a wrap on BGO’s three-part fantasy preview of the NFC North.  There are definitely some players worth owning in the division and if our boys can’t manage to beat them on the field, at least we can benefit from having them on our fantasy football team.
