Packers | Randall Cobb played hurt, lost strength

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 06:16:24 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb sprained the AC joint in his right shoulder in the third preseason game last season, and he never fully recovered the entire season. The injury kept him from lifting weights, and he lost strength. "I lost a lot of weight last year during the season," Cobb said. "It doesn't help when you can't do much upper-body (training) to hold your strength. Yeah, obviously, it weighed a lot on me but I feel great right now, and that's the plan - to try to maintain my weight and try to stay as injury-free as I can."

Fantasy Tip: Cobb had an underwhelming 79-829-6 season, but he was also hurt by the loss of Jordy Nelson. Nelson is back, and Cobb should be back to the WR2 image he cemented in fantasy.

Packers | Jordy Nelson practices in full

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 15:53:49 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Aug. 29. Nelson said he does not expect to play in the final preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson should be ready for the start of the regular season and will be a main part of the team's passing game. He can be a No. 1 wide receiver in all fantasy leagues and likely will be selected in the first two or three rounds of drafts.

Packers | Morgan Burnett returns

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 10:32:58 -0700

Green Bay Packers FS Morgan Burnett (back) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 29, for the first time since before the preseason opener.

Fantasy Tip: Burnett had an injury-plagued year in 2015, but he remains a top-flight option at safety in IDP leagues that could come at a discount.

Packers | John Crockett injured

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 06:01:30 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB John Crockett (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Crockett is expected to be the No. 3 running back this season, so owners should monitor the situation. Crockett likely will not receive a lot of playing time this season, so owners can avoid him in all leagues.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers not expected to play much

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 17:04:22 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be the starting quarterback in the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Friday, Aug. 26, but is not expected to play more than a quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers does not need much playing time during the preseason, so he probably will see a few series. Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and should be one of the first quarterbacks selected in all drafts.

Packers | Corey Linsley tore hamstring twice

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 08:20:02 -0700

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers C Corey Linsley (hamstring) tore his hamstring in April and again in July during offseason workouts. Linsley said the muscle isn't torn off the bone, but there is a significant tear within the muscle that requires time to heal. Linsley could miss the first six weeks of the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Packers | Jordy Nelson remains on limited duty

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:57:41 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson worked with QB Aaron Rodgers in practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, but Nelson was once again held out of competitive, 11-on-11 periods. He might not play in any preseason games, and he and Rodgers might only have a handful of practices together before the Week 1 opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, Rodgers believes it will be enough. "Because I know exactly where he's going to be," Rodgers said. "That's the beauty of us playing together for a long time."

Fantasy Tip: Nelson is being held out to preserve him and not test his injury too much before the games count for real. He is expected to be 100 percent for the regular season and fantasy owners can depend upon him as a WR1 in most formats. However, with a player coming off a major injury it's a good idea to load up with plenty of depth at the position in case there are setbacks.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers fine with limited work

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:56:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers expects to play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 26, against the San Francisco 49ers, but how much has not yet been decided. "Whatever (head coach Mike McCarthy) wants me to do," Rodgers said. "We haven't talked about play time yet. I'm not sure how long he wants me to play, but it'll be good to get out there and get some work with the guys." He doesn't expect to play in the preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs next week.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is a veteran with nine years under his belt, so we know what he can do - and certainly his coaching staff is well aware. He remains a top notch QB1 in all fantasy formats worth selecting in the middle rounds on draft day, especially with Jordy Nelson back from injury.

Packers | Jared Cook gets comfortable with QB

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:56:08 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook will play his first preseason game with QB Aaron Rodgers Friday, Aug. 26, against the San Francisco 49ers. The two have developed a rapport with one another since Cook came off the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Cook is behind Richard Rodgers on the depth chart, so fantasy owners can leave him to the waiver wire into the regular season. However, he still has plenty left in the tank and could be a key contributor if Richard Rodgers suffers some sort of long-term injury.
