Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wants to run 75 plays per game

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy and QB Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 want to increase to speed of the Packers offense to 75 plays per game this season, which would place them among the fastest-paced offenses in the NFL. "That seems to be the answer to some of the different things that defenses are doing," Rodgers said of the plan. According to head coach McCarthy, that type of offense would require RB Eddie Lacy @Lil_Eazy_Ana_42 to become a three-down back. Last year, the Denver Broncos ran the fastest offense in the NFL at an average of 72 plays per game.

Fantasy Analysis:

While planning and execution are two different matters, it's hard to doubt the Packers ability to speed up their offense, especially with QB Rodgers at the helm. This is interesting fantasy news for a lot of Packers players, including WRs Randall Cobb @rcobb18 and Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson, and most of all RB Eddie Lacy. If Lacy's able to improve his blocking and receiving skills and take on full-time third-down duties, he'll have a shot at becoming the number one fantasy running back in the 2014 season.
