McCarthy: WR Jarrett Boykin in worse shape than first thought
by Marty Gitlin |

Mike McCarthy has conceded that the knee and groin injuries plaguing Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin are "a little worse than we thought" and that he is definitely out for the Thursday night game against Minnesota, per ESPN.

McCarthy is even concerned that Boykin will miss the Week 6 clash against Miami.

Boykin, who snagged 49 passes for 681 yards a year ago, has just two catches for 17 yards in two games this season.

CB coach warning Packers about Vikings WR Greg Jennings
by Marty Gitlin |

Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt has sent a word of warning to his players through the media - Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings has returned to form.

"Greg is back, OK?" Whitt said via "I don't know if he was hurt or what happened last year. He looks like the old Greg Jennings. He's fast, he's quick, he's elusive, he's really creative in his route-running. He's fun to watch run routes. The quarterback can get him the ball. So we really have a challenge."

The ex-Packer has not stuffed the stat sheet - he is on the same statistical pace as he was in 2013. But he has come on recently with eight catches for 142 yards over the last two games combined. He has not scored, however, since Week 1.

Coaches praise Packers WR Randall Cobb for mindset
by Marty Gitlin |

The work ethic and determination of Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb not only allowed him to bounce back Sunday from a poor performance in Week 3 against Detroit, but it earned him the praise of Mike McCarthy.

"Randall's a tireless worker. He's a true pro," McCarthy told the team website. "He was that way at a young age. His rookie year, he was clearly one of the most impressive rookies from a maturity standpoint that we've had come through the doors. He's the same guy every day. ... The performance of prior games, it might give you more motivation. I've never seen him need more urgency in his approach. He's a very consistent professional."

Cobb achieved season-highs with seven catches and 113 yards in the defeat of the Bears on Sunday and added two touchdowns to give him five on the season. Receivers coach Edgar Bennett was duly impressed, but not particularly surprised.

"He's one of the toughest - I say receiver - but football players I've been around," Bennett said. "Not only from a physical standpoint, but that's mentality as well. He's tough minded. He understands what goes into it, and what it's going to take to go from good to great. That's always the standard. 'Good is not good enough.' ... I think that's the mindset, certainly, that he has."

Fantasy Analysis | 1412106704
Eddie Lacy still worth your trust in Week 5
by Chris Towers |

Disappointed in Packers running back Eddie Lacy? Good, you should be. Even in his best Fantasy outing of the season, Lacy rushed for just 48 yards on 17 carries in Week 4, in a performance that was salvaged only by a touchdown.

Lacy has given little reason for Fantasy owners to feel good about his performance this season, as he carries a pitiful 3.0 yards per carry average into Week 5 against the Vikings. However, he may start to turn things around this week, against a beat up Vikings defense that just surrendered 6.0 yards per carry to Falcons running backs.

The Vikings have surrendered 70 Fantasy points to opposing running backs over the last three weeks, and now have to face a short turnaround as they try to slow Lacy down. Even with how disappointing he has been, this could be a good chance for Lacy to build on his first score a week ago, against a team that could be trailing early.

Lacy ranks just 23rd among running backs in Fantasy scoring this season, but both Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg have him ranked right inside the top-10 for Week 5. Despite his struggles, keep Lacy active.
