Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) has been diagnosed with an AC joint sprain, after undergoing further tests Sunday, Aug. 30, according to a source. He suffered the injury in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Aug. 29.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb's status for the season opener against the Chicago Bears is in question, although the injury is considered to be minor. If he is not able to play in Week 1, Davante Adams would serve as the team's No. 1 receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for updates on Cobb's injury. If he is forced to miss any regular season games, Davante Adams would become Green Bay's de facto No. 1 receiver with Jordy Nelson already out for the year.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers have already paid for playing their starters after losing Jordy Nelson last week. The backups will have a chance to get more repetitions in and prove they deserve a spot on the team. This has no impact on fantasy value for the starters.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is arguably the top quarterback in fantasy and will be taken early in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers will be missing a few offensive linemen in the game, so the team may want to keep Rodgers out of the game to keep him healthy. Rodgers should be one of the first few quarterbacks selected in all drafts this season.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he feels no pressure to replace WR Jordy Nelson (knee) as the team's No. 1 receiver this year now that Nelson is lost for the season. "I don't think that is an issue," Cobb said. "I pressed last year in the beginning of the season, and I'm not going to do that again. There's no need for that. Aaron's going to do his job, he's going to get us the ball. It's my job when I get those opportunities to make things happen." Cobb had 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2014, and his role might not change drastically with Nelson out. Cobb has typically been a slot receiver for Green Bay, while Nelson has played on the outside.
Fantasy Tip: The Packers will still likely use plenty of three-receiver sets and keep Cobb in the slot role, so his value as a No. 1 fantasy receiver shouldn't change much with Nelson's injuries, and he should be targeted plenty. Davante Adams is the one who benefits the most, and he's a WR3 now.

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.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers receiving corps is still pretty deep, but losing a receiver of Nelson's caliber for the year is a big blow, and it'll likely drop Rodgers behind Andrew Luck as the top-rated fantasy quarterback. Randall Cobb remains a WR1 and should benefit from more targets, while Davante Adams is now a legitimate WR3 for fantasy squads.
Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:25:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Devante Adams likely will step in for Nelson this season, which will boost his fantasy value. He could now be a middle-round option in most leagues this this season. Nelson should be ready for next season if he does not suffer any setbacks and should be a solid fantasy option in 2016.
