Mason Crosby was successful in his lone field goal attempt and converted all five of his extra-points during the Packers' 38-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Crosby is now 8-for-9 in field goal attempts on the season, which is a good efficiency rate although fantasy owners would like to see more production from their kicker than what they have received up to this point. Unless the Packers offense slows down, the majority of his production is going to come from extra-point attempts which is going to limit him in the fantasy game.

Casey Hayward recorded three tackles and one interception during the Packers' win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Hayward has now logged interceptions in back-to-back games while being credited with two passes defended in each of his last three games making him a decent IDP play if in a desperate situation. As long as he continues to receive solid playing time he is someone to add heading into Week 8.

Julius Peppers recorded five tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks against the Panthers on Sunday.

Peppers is now sitting on 3.0 sacks and 24 combined tackles through seven games in his first season with Packers, which is a far cry from the days he dominated his opposition. Unless you find yourself in a desperate situation, there are far more consistent players to target for help in IDP leagues.

Davonte Adams caught the one pass thrown his way Sunday against the Panthers and took it 21 yards for a touchdown.

Although Adams had only one reception in Sunday's blowout win over the Panthers, Adams made it count as he was able to find the end zone for the second time in his last three games. As the season progresses we should start to see Adams worked into the mix more often as Jarrett Boykin continues to slide down the depth chart, but until we see more consistency from him on a weekly basis it is difficult to label him a sold starter moving forward.

Jordy Nelson caught four passes on five targets for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Panthers on Sunday.

Nelson got the party started for the Packers in Week 7 after turning a 59-yard reception into a touchdown in the first quarter, now giving him six touchdowns on the season. His five targets on Sunday was his second lowest total of the season, but if the Packers weren't up big early in the contest fantasy owners could have expected an even more productive day from their workhorse. He is a WR1 and should be until he proves us otherwise as he continues to be one of the best wide receivers to own in 2014.

Randall Cobb caught six passes on seven targets for 121 yards and a touchdown during the Packers' 38-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Cobb continued to should efficiency in the Packers blowout victory over the Panthers on Sunday as he has now converted 35 of his 47 targets for receptions through his first seven weeks. Sunday's 121 receiving yards was his highest total of the season while now sitting with a team-leading eight touchdowns. As long as he continues to make big plays and find the end zone on a regular basis, he is a WR1 despite being the No. 2 option in the Packers passing attack.
