Panthers Sign Former Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (3/27 2:29 PT)

The Facts: The Panthers announced they have signed Boykin, the former Packers wide receiver, to a one-year contract.  Reported by

Diehards Line: Boykin spent three years with the Packers, but became a free agent when they didn’t tender him an offer this offseason. He caught 49 passes in 2013, but fell down the pecking order when the regulars got well and caught just three passes last year. Boykin grew up in Charlotte, attending Butler High, and as PFT suggests, he has a chance to latch on in a much shallower depth chart than the one he was stuck on in Green Bay.

Aaron Rodgers, Packers Could Be Running More Pistol This Year (3/27 12:27 PT)

fantasy football player photo The Facts: Before Rodgers suffered an injury to his left calf last year, the Packers had experimented with the pistol formation. But Rodgers' immobility necessitated its constant use, and now HC Mike McCarthy may be inventing ways to make it a regular option for his quarterback. "I like the pistol," McCarthy said this week. "I think there's a lot of value regardless of the injury to Aaron. I know he likes it. There's a place for it year-round in your offense." Reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Diehards Line: As Journal-Sentinel staffer Tom Silverstein suggests, for the Packers, the pistol adds another element of unpredictability to the offense since they can run the same plays they can from under center or from the shotgun. When studying tendencies, a defense has to consider what the Packers might run out of three formations instead of two. ... McCarthy has turned play-calling duties over to Tom Clements, his former OC whose title is now assistant HC/offense. Rodgers is expected to have more say in the game plans each week, but the process of integrating him with Clements and new coordinator Edgar Bennett won't happen for a while. "I think we're watching a great Hall of Fame player really at a midpoint of his career," McCarthy said. "He gives us the flexibility to be very creative offensively. He gives us the ability to be very aggressive in what we do. It's a lot of fun from that perspective. He's a great football player. ..." No argument here.

Fantasy Football Diehards Headline News Analysis
football diehards headline player photo Bush Signs With 49ers; Veteran To Work Behind Hyde Mar 14,2015
After visiting with team officials on Friday, Reggie Bush agreed to terms with the 49ers after a two-year stint in Detroit that started with a solid 2013 season but ended with a disappointing 2014 season.

The Lions cut Bush after a season in which is fantasy football relevancy took a major hit.

As pointed out, San Francisco will be Bush’s fourth NFL stop, after five years in New Orleans, two in Miami and two in Detroit. At age 30 he’s not quite the playmaker he once was, but he can still be a solid contributor in a limited role.

And that's all the 49ers will need. ... Full Story
