Packers | GB starters will sit Saturday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:13:48 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and the rest of Green Bay's starters will not play Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the Philadelphia Eagles, according to QB Matt Blanchard.

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.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers may be limited Saturday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:45:33 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could see limited snaps during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and there is a chance he could sit out the entire game.

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.

Packers | Randall Cobb's role unlikely to change

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 16:02:24 -0700

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.

Packers | Ty Montgomery with first-team

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:00:04 -0700

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.

Packers | Ty Montgomery the WR3?

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 05:30:42 -0700

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.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers had great chemistry with Jordy Nelson

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 16:12:47 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' passer rating when targeting WR Jordy Nelson in the last four seasons has been 150.2, 130.3, 111.6 and 128.2, according to Pro Football Focus.

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.

Packers | More on Jordy Nelson's injury

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:25:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) has a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but the MRI revealed all of his other knee ligaments are fine.

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.

Packers | Jordy Nelson out for year

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:19:00 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is officially out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: This was to be expected, there had just been no official word yet. Davante Adams' fantasy value increases tremendously. He could put up WR2 production. Jeff Janis is a sleeper now.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers banged up

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 10:23:24 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hand, wrist) suffered injuries to his right hand and wrist during the second preseason game Sunday, Aug. 23, and did not return. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers could have continued playing if it was a regular season game.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers could sit out a few practices but should be fine for the regular season. Rodgers' value will take a little hit because of the injury to Jordy Nelson, but he should still be one of the first quarterbacks selected since he has other weapons to work with on offense.

Packers | Reggie Wayne could take GB call

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 07:12:15 -0700

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) could receive interest from the Green Bay Packers if WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is out for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Wayne has some WR5 value in PPR leagues, and if he has anything left, Green Bay would be an ideal landing spot.
