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.

James Starks carried the ball seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for seven yards before leaving Sunday's game with an ankle injury.

Although Starks was unable to return following an ankle injury in the third quarter, the Packers downplayed the severity of the injury as the team most likely would have sent him back into action had they not had a huge lead at that point in the game. Starks is going to continue to play second-fiddle to Eddie Lacy in the Packers rushing attack, but he is worthy of holding onto at this point in the season considering the upside he holds if something was to happen to his teammate in the near future.

Eddie Lacy carried the ball 12 times for 63 yards and a touchdown against the Panthers on Sunday. He also caught three passes for 10 yards.

Lacy ran the ball well in Week 7, averaging 5.3 yards per carry while being able to find his way into the end zone for the fourth time in his last four games. Although he has only one game in which he has cross the 100-yard rushing mark up to this point in the season, he is still a threat of scoring on a weekly basis while the Packers offense is firing on all cylinders making it difficult to take him out of starting lineups even the shallowest of league settings.

Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-22 passes for 255 yards and three touchdowns during the Packers' 38-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Rodgers has really made it look easy this season, having now thrown for three or more touchdowns in five of his first seven games making him a top five fantasy quarterback in that time frame. To add to his domination, Rodgers has completed 66.8 percent of his passes while finishing with a quarterback of 99.7 or higher in the games in which he has thrown for more than one touchdown. Those who started to doubt the Packers signal caller after a slow start are certainly eating their words now that he has his offense running efficiently, so fantasy owners can expect much of the same production moving forward.

Davon House (finger) is questionable to return to Sunday's action against the Panthers.

The Packers were already thin at quarterback with Sam Shields out.
