The Packers’ tight-end production has fallen off significantly since the 2013 career-ending neck injury to Jermichael Finley, who averaged 12.5 yards per catch in his six seasons.

“That’s always been a thing that we focus on every single year, it’s been yards after contact,” Packers tight ends coach Jerry Fontenot said this week. “We haven’t been as good as we have been in previous years. That seemed to be something that Jermichael was especially good at. Our expectations were high, and I think we’re very capable of breaking tackles and gaining extra yardage and to do it to the best of our ability is all we ask. I don’t expect to turn anybody into something that they’re not, but we can definitely improve on.”

Andrew Quarless, who hasn’t played since his Week 3 knee injury, could help. But given that he has only two catches for 14 yards this season, he’s not likely to surpass Rodgers in terms of receptions.

Fantasy Impact:

Quarless' career average of 10.6 yards per catch includes an 11.1-yard average last season, when he caught 29 passes and three touchdowns (including the last-second game winner at Miami).

Packers TE Andrew Quarless (knee) was removed from the injury report Friday. Quarless is out for 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL in his left knee. Richard Rodgers should see a full complement of snaps with Quarless sidelined. In three games that Quarless missed over the past two seasons, Rodgers has averaged 8.1 fantasy points (PPR), which is twice what he averaged in 13 games with Quarless in the lineup.

Aaron Rodgers will be without another target for at least a month.

Tight end Andrew Quarless has an MCL sprain in his left knee, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, per a source. Quarless, who was injured on Monday night in the second quarter against the Chiefs, is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Fantasy Impact:

The second-string tight end is the latest Packer to get hit by the injury bug. Green Bay is already without the services of top wide receiver Jordy Nelson for the season, Eddie Lacy has been slowed down by an ankle injury and Davante Adams aggravated his high-ankle sprain on the first series versus Kansas City on Monday night.

McCarthy: TE Richard Rodgers 'has definitely taken a step,' is catching the ball 'very well'

"Richard Rodgers has definitely taken a step from last year," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said earlier in training camp. "He's taken a step offensively in the passing game and completely understands it. You think about where he was this time last year. He's comfortable and he's catching the ball very well."

Rodgers, a third-round draft choice who's still just 23, certainly has more upside (than Andrew Quarless). And the Packers appear ready to give Rodgers a greater role in the offense in 2015.

Rodgers has some of the best hands on the team, which has earned him points from his quarterback. He's also a dependable short-to-intermediate receiver, even though his yards after the catch (1.9 in 2014) must improve.

Fantasy Impact:

Rodgers caught 20 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. We shouldn’t be too quick to write him off as a budding fantasy asset since rookie tight ends rarely make much of a fantasy impact. Andrew Quarless is dealing with a legal issue and may be suspended to start the season, which opens the door for Rodgers to play big snaps. He is reportedly a ‘frequent target’ in the red zone in practice, so it’s possible that he works his way into TE2 numbers in his second season.

Packers TE Richard Rodgers 'frequent target' in red zone

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers might have found a new favorite target in the red zone. So far in training camp, the second-year tight end has become a frequent target for Rodgers inside the 20. Combine that with the fact that Andrew Quarless could be suspended to start the season, and Richard Rodgers should get a lot of action.

Sources: Pack to stick by TE Andrew Quarless

The Green Bay Packers plan to stand by tight end Andrew Quarless following his July 4 arrest in Miami Beach, Florida.

According to two sources, the Packers have no plans to release the sixth-year veteran, who was charged with a misdemeanor for discharging a firearm in public. According to the police report, Quarless fired two shots into the air outside a parking garage and was arrested at 5:35 a.m.

Quarless was released from custody. No future court dates have been set yet, according to the Miami Beach Clerk of Courts.

Fantasy Impact:

The 26-year-old is expected to compete for the starting job with second-year tight end Richard Rodgers. The story went on to say Quarless could be subject to discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy. The policy states that a player could be placed on paid administrative leave or on the commissioner's exempt list if "formally charged with a crime of violence, meaning that you are accused of having used physical force or a weapon to injure or threaten another person."

Packers TE Andrew Quarless arrested for firing gun

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Green Bay tight end Andrew Quarless has joined the march to the sidelines after reportedly being arrested in Miami on Saturday morning.

According to the Miami New Times, Quarless was involved in a fight at South Beach, which allegedly prompted him to fire a gun twice into the ground. He tried to flee, but Quarless was apprehended by a pair of police officers.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say a spokesman for the Miami Police Department confirmed the arrest and its details. An incident report is expected to be released later today. Under the new Personal Conduct Policy, Quarless could be headed for paid leave pending the resolution of these charges and the imposition of league discipline. Thereafter, he’d potentially serve an unpaid suspension. Quarless appeared in 16 games with 11 starts in 2014, catching 29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns.

In a Q&A with ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers singled out Andrew Quarless as a player who has "jumped out" at him during offseason workouts.

"Andrew Quarless has had a great offseason," the quarterback said. "I think he's really, something clicked in for him at the end of last year and he's been taking the jump."

Fantasy Impact:

Richard Rodgers is also in the mix. Neither player is particularly attractive at this point since they rotated at the position for most of last year.

Brandon Bostick released; tight end is a position of need for the Packers

Tuesday, February 17, 2015, 12:35pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

At tight end, the Packers like what last year's third-round pick, Richard Rodgers, showed late in the season, when he became more involved in the offense, but it's still too early to say whether he'll be the playmaker that Jermichael Finley was before his neck injury. Behind Rodgers and Andrew Quarless, the Packers are thin. Once a promising prospect, Brandon Bostick was released on Monday, a month after he botched the onside kick recovery in the NFC Championship Game.

Fantasy Impact:

Neither Rodgers nor Quarless established themselves as a consistent threat as a fantasy tight end. The Packers may look to shore up the position this offseason.

Coach Mike McCarthy hinted last week this was coming, that the Green Bay Packers' tight ends -- even seldom-used Brandon Bostick -- might have a bigger role in the offense than they did in the first half of the season.

But even with that forewarning, it was still stunning to see quarterback Aaron Rodgers throw the first two of his six touchdown passes in Sunday night's rout of the Chicago Bears to tight ends. Bostick, who had one catch for 2 yards all season, was the recipient of the first, on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line. Andrew Quarless got the second, on third-down from the 4-yard line.

It was the first time since Week 3 of the 2011 season, when Jermichael Finley had three touchdowns against the Bears, that Packers tight ends have caught more than one touchdown pass in a game. And it was the first time since Week 2 of 2007, when Bubba Franks and Donald Lee had touchdowns against the New York Giants, that two different Packers tight ends have caught touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

On Bostick's TD, the team lined up without the likes of WRs Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb on the field and it was Bostick on the receiving end of a play-action pass. Eventually, Nelson and Cobb got involved but if Rodgers can add TEs as targets it's only going to make him more productive. While Bostick and Quarless aren't quite top-notch fantasy tight ends just yet, they do potentially take away targets and TDs from those Packers who are owned.
