Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery is practicing with the first-team offense Tuesday, Aug. 25, with WR Jeff Janis with the scout team.
Fantasy Tip: This is the first practice since it was announced Jordy Nelson tore the ACL in his knee and is lost for the season, so nothing is set in stone. However, Montgomery will be given the first chance to move up the depth chart to replace Nelson. A lot can change between now and Week 1, so keep an eye on this competition. Whoever wins the job could be useful for receiver depth in deeper fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery will be the slot receiver in practice this week with WR Jeff Janis, WR Myles White, WR Larry Pinkard, WR Ed Williams and WR Jared Abbrederis competing for a spot after him.
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery is a rookie, but the slot role in this offense has solid potential. He's a WR5 flyer worth making.

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis hasn't made the performance jump the team was hoping for this offseason. He filled in with the first-team offense when WR Jordy Nelson (hip) was out but hasn't sustained the momentum since Nelson returned. Janis struggles sinking in his hips and maneuvering in close quarters, and at times, he looks to be a straight-line speed receiver. "With Jeff, it's the consistency," said Alex Van Pelt, who coaches the wide receivers and quarterbacks. "He's a big guy so some of the routes cater to him. Some of the routes we run where there's a lot of sudden change in movements, they just don't fit the bigger players."

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis continues to improve and was ready to step in and play at the end of last season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "Now it's a completely different world," Janis said. "It's really starting to slow down for me. I'm starting to see things a little differently, and it's coming a lot easier."

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis has been working with the No. 1 offense while WR Jordy Nelson (hip) remains sidelined following hip surgery. Janis has been trying to build chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers, which is a must for Janis to gain the trust of Rodgers and his coaches. "It's a lot different going with Aaron because he's on a whole other level, but I'm just trying to take advantage of all the reps that I get and try to make plays whenever he comes my way," Janis said.
Fantasy Tip: Janis' best shot at earning a role with the Packers will be on special teams, but his performance so far in organized team activities could also earn himself reps at receiver. Janis is the tallest and the fastest receiver on the team, and he has the ability to make big plays. Ignore Janis on draft day, but he could become an occasional option on FantasyScore.

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis was singled out by head coach Mike McCarthy Tuesday, June 2. "Jeff Janis is really moving forward. (Janis) came on at the end of last year. (He) was ready to play," McCarthy said.
Fantasy Tip: Janis is a player on the move, and he could work his way into a decent role in the Green Bay offense in training camp and the preseason. For now, he is a wait-and-see guy with some upside, but if an injury or two also happens, he could find himself in a more prominent role.
