Packers | Martellus Bennett struggling with fundamentals?

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 19:33:15 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett finished with five catches for 47 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons but committed four drops - a problem offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett believes is rooted in fundamentals. "It really just always goes back to being fundamentally sound, trusting his training. He has really good hands. We just have to be fundamentally sound in those situations, not allowing the ball to cross your eyes, things like that, extending for the football," Bennett told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is only two tight ends - Jason Witten (22) and Zach Ertz (18) - have been targeted more often than Bennett (17). The bad news is Bennett only has eight catches for 90 yards so far. While it is troubling Bennett would be struggling with fundamentals in his age-30 season, his track record is far too good to believe he won't eventually get things figured out. Owners should stick it out with him and buy low if possible.

Packers | Jordy Nelson 50-50 for Week 3

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 05:16:04 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) is "50-50" to play in Week 3, according to a source, but his quadriceps strain isn't considered serious.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers face the 0-2 Cincinnati Bengals this week, and if Nelson goes, he could be on a snap count. Randall Cobb (shoulder), who was also nicked up, is day to day. Nelson would be a WR2 candidate if he suits up. Cobb could graduate to WR2 status if he were to play and Nelson didn't.

Packers | Randall Cobb is day-to-day

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 13:45:11 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb's (shoulder) MRI revealed no significant damage to his injured shoulder. He is considered day-to-day, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers and Cobb owners can breathe a sigh of relief. Cobb has played like his old self after a disappointing 2016 campaign in which he was hampered by injury. The shifty receiver is an every-week starter in PPR leagues as long as he's healthy. He can be started at least as a flex in standard formats.

Packers | Randall Cobb to have MRI

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 09:14:11 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 18, on the shoulder injury that knocked him out of the Week 2 game.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb played through a shoulder injury two years ago and didn't do so very affectively. The Pack are already missing two of their best offensive linemen and lost Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) in Week 2. If Cobb can go and Nelson can't, he'd be in the low-end WR2/high-end WR3 realm. Stay tuned for updates.

Packers | Martellus Bennett targeted 11 times

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:58:04 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett posted five receptions for 47 yards on a game-high 11 targets in Week 2 at Atlanta.

Fantasy Tip: Aaron Rodgers looked to Bennett early and often, but especially once Jordy Nelson went down in the first half with a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time it is good news for the fantasy appeal of Bennett going into Week 3 against Cincinnati.

Packers | Randall Cobb totals 70 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:57:37 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb posted six receptions for 60 yards on nine targets in Week 2 at Atlanta and he ran once for 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb did a good job in the second half, as everyone moved up and had more responsibilities once Jordy Nelson left the game early due to a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time Cobb could see six to eight targets in Week 3 against the Bengals to make him a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option.

Packers | Davante Adams just misses century mark

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:57:07 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams hauled in eight receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 at Atlanta and he was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: Adams stepped up and filled the void left by Jordy Nelson, who checked out early in the first half due to a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time then Adams will be the top banana in Green Bay's pass attack and that's always good for fantasy value. The Packers host the Bengals in Week 3.

Packers | Ty Montgomery totals 110 yards, two TDs

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:56:31 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery rushed 10 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 at Atlanta and he added six receptions for 75 yards and a score on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery was one of the more reliable receivers for Aaron Rodgers once Jordy Nelson left the game due to a quadriceps injury. It was a great night for fantasy owners of Montgomery across the board. He'll look to carry the momentum into Week 3 against Cincinnati at Lambeau Field.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers throws for 343 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:55:50 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33 of his 50 pass attempts for 343 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 2 at Atlanta.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was playing with a patchwork offensive line due to several injuries but he still had a decent overall stat line. He'll look to keep up the big fantasy production in Week 3 against Cincinnati.

Packers | Jordy Nelson questionable to return

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:06:58 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) left the Week 2 game at Atlanta in the first quarter due to a quadriceps injury and he is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: If Nelson is unable to return it would be Davante Adams ascending to the No. 1 receiver job.
