Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 24, but is probable for Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints. The Packers didn't practice Friday, so Starks' designation is an estimation.
Fantasy Tip: Starks has been sharing carries with Eddie Lacy in the backfield. Starks has a great matchup against the Saints Sunday night, making his $3,600 (7.2% of cap) FantasyScore price enticing if you're looking for a cheap running back option.

Green Bay Packers DE Datone Jones (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints. S Morgan Burnett (calf) is questionable, while CB Sam Shields (knee) is doubtful. All three players didn't practice Friday, Oct. 24. However, the Packers didn't practice Friday, so the designations are an estimation.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels much better about his level of play in recent weeks than he did at the start of the year. "You just kind of get in a zone," Cobb said. "It's like a runner's high, or writing an exam paper and you're on page 7, and the next thing you know you're on page 12. It's just one of those things where you continue to press on, and things happen."
Fantasy Tip: Cobb has found the end zone at least once in four straight games, and he should be in for another big performance in Week 8 against a New Orleans defense that is allowing more than 270 yards per game through the air. His $7,800 salary (15.6% of cap) at FantasyScore ranks third at the position, but Cobb has the matchup and the momentum to live up to the price tag.

Fantasy Tip: Starks will cost $3,600 (7.2% of cap) against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. He has been sharing touches with Eddie Lacy recently. If Starks sees his workload decrease, Lacy ($6,300) could be a nice play against a weak Saints defense.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a passer rating of 154.5 against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7, and head coach Mike McCarthy thinks his quarterback is better than he was when he won the Most Valuable Player award in 2011. Rodgers has thrown 18 straight touchdown passes without an interception heading into Week 8. "Aaron is a much better player today than he was in 2011," said McCarthy. "His responsibility level has increased a lot since then. So, what he does during the course of the week, during the course of the game, at the line of scrimmage, the communication between (quarterbacks coach) Alex Van Pelt and myself, he is, in my opinion, watching him grow throughout his career, he's clearly a better player." Rodgers' streak of 192 pass attempts without an interception is the longest of his career and second best stretch by any Green Bay quarterback since Bart Starr went 294 passes without throwing an interception.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers should be started every week in standard leagues, and he justifies his $8,700 (17.4% of cap) FantasyScore price against the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: It is a good sign for his availability that he was able to get on the practice field today. Starks will cost you $3,600 (7.2% of cap) in FantasyScore this week, but that money could probably be better used elsewhere, especially if Starks is limited.

Fantasy Tip: Eddie Lacy will have added value if Starks is unable to go this weekend. He is priced at $6,300 on FantasyScore in a matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Four players auditioned for the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday, Oct. 21, including WR Jace Davis (Northern Colorado), RB David Fluellen (Toledo), G Andrew Miller (Virginia Tech), and CB David Van Dyke (Tennessee State).

Fantasy Tip: If Starks is forced to miss time, Eddie Lacy will likely carry even more of the load as the No. 1 back. However, John Kuhn and DuJuan Harris could also see some added touches, but neither would have much appeal in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson has had a terrific season so far and should continue to be a weekly starting option as long as he is healthy.

Green Bay Packers DE Datone Jones (ankle) and CB Sam Shields (knee) have been ruled out for Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers. WR Jarrett Boykin (groin), LB Jamari Lattimore (neck) and CB Tramon Williams (ankle) are questionable, while LB Sam Barrington (hamstring) and DT Josh Boyd (knee) are probable. Jones and Shields didn't practice Friday, Oct. 17. Boykin, Lattimore and Williams were limited, while the others practiced in full. The Packers didn't actually practice Friday, so the designations are an estimation.
