First is was no love for the RBs. Now no love for the receivers. GB is just a mess without AR.

23. Green Bay Packers
It's tempting to see the swap of Jordy Nelson for Jimmy Graham as a positive for the Packers, given Nelson's dramatic decline, but I'm not sure Graham is improving these days, either. He dropped off to 32.5 receiving yards per game last season, his lowest mark as a starter by more than 20 yards. Graham ran fewer routes, but he caught a pass on just 12.3 percent of his routes, which was his lowest rate as a pro. He made up for it by scoring 10 touchdowns on 57 receptions, but that 17.5 percent touchdown rate is a career outlier for the former Miami basketball player, and something Graham is unlikely to keep up, even with Aaron Rodgers under center.


If Graham doesn't at least challenge to be one of the most productive tight ends in football, the Packers aren't going to bless Rodgers with options. Davante Adams, now likely to be Rodgers' top target, still hasn't had a 1,000-yard season as a pro. (He will in 2018.) Randall Cobb, once a versatile threat at multiple spots in the lineup, has seen his yards per catch and receiving yards per game drop in each of four consecutive seasons. The Packers haven't had a single running back make it to 800 rushing yards once over the past three years, a feat only the Lions have matched. Rodgers will help this group play up, but we saw how little it was able to do with the star quarterback missing most of last season.

When we won the SB, we were a dome team, with plenty of speed. Fortunately, we are going back to that, but we are not there yet.

What's wrong with someone love love for the receivers?

We have a lot of untested skill position groups on this team. We're typically one of the youngest teams in the league and I would bet this year we are even younger than normal. We're going to come in low in the rankings until we see what these guys can do. Hopefully, once we see them our ranking proves it should have been higher

The Packers have a top WR #1, WR #2, and TE #1. They're unproven at running back but I have little doubt at least one RB #1 will emerge. The real question is if a WR #3 will step up or not.

23 seems perfectly fair to me. A lot of questions.

As with the RB rating I don't have a problem with the WR rating. I am confident Adams can be at least a top 10 WR so no problem there. I am also confident that Graham and Cobb will rebound but I completely understand the questions surrounding them. After them we have nothing but potential.

I’d rather have them doubt us then praise us. Give a little extra to show up the “experts”.
Nelson’s loss will hurt for a time, but I honestly believe the guys we have will step up.
