Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 15-for-35 (42.9%) for 129 yards, no touchdowns and one interception on throws to WR Davante Adams the last three weeks. Rodgers is 58-for-103 (56.3%) for 618 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions to everyone else.
Fantasy Tip: Expect the tandem to work in practice and shore things up before facing the Detroit Lions next Thursday. Adams is seeing a ton of targets, and sooner than later he's going to start converting on them.

Fantasy Tip: After appearing to be in pain when he left the field, Rodgers was able to return for the Packers' following possession. It looks like he dodged a serious injury.

Green Bay Packers WRs Jared Abbrederis (ribs, chest) and Ty Montgomery (ankle) have been ruled out for Week 12. S Micah Hyde (hip), C Corey Linsley (ankle), DT Mike Pennel (quadriceps) and CB Damarious Randall (hamstring) are listed as questionable. OT David Bakhtiari (knee), OT Bryan Bulaga (knee), S Morgan Burnett (ankle), LB Jayrone Elliott (ankle), OG T.J. Lang (shoulder), LB Clay Matthews (ankle, knee), FB Aaron Ripkowski (ankle) and OG Josh Sitton (knee) are probable.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) and WR Davante Adams (ankle) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, and are listed as probable to play Thursday, Nov. 26, against the Chicago Bears.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) resurrected himself last week from the fantasy doldrums, so he shouldn't be overlooked on FantasyScore this week, but the Chicago Bears have only allowed three rushing touchdowns to running backs this year. Adams is a good play against Chicago as the Bears have surrendered 14 touchdowns to wide receivers this year -- tied for third most in the league.

Fantasy Tip: While it's usually not a bad idea to start one of Aaron Rodgers' main receivers, Adams ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been underachieving all year. He's still yet to score a touchdown this season and took a backseat to James Jones ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in Green Bay's most recent contest. It's probably best to avoid him this week, although he's still worth monitoring for a potential breakout at some point.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) had a big rebound game last week, which is hopefully a sign of things to come for the rest of the season. There is still some risk involved in playing Lacy since he has been inconsistent, but he's still worth a start against the Chicago Bears Thursday night.

Updating an earlier report, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy rushed 22 times for 100 yards in Week 11, and FB John Kuhn was repeatedly seen crossing the formation opening lanes for Lacy. Kuhn was the lead blocker on 20 of the 34 runs Sunday, Nov. 22, according to NFL Media's Brian Baldinger. "I thought Mike McCarthy and the whole staff did some things from a formation standpoint to get Lacy going, and I thought they got the balance in a game that they've been looking for: 34 runs, 34 passes, it's not all Aaron Rodgers," Baldinger told viewers on NFL Network's latest edition of The Aftermath, saying of Lacy: "I saw his footwork yesterday. That guy can stop and he can start. He looked a lot the kid that played at Alabama three years ago and like we saw the last couple seasons. He looked like he was healthy and in good form right now."
Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) has a decent matchup against the Chicago Bears Thursday, but you'll be allotting a big chunk of FantasyScore cap space. James Starks ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is expected to remain involved, but he hasn't turned many heads on the ground.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy and RB James Starks will remain involved in the offense, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy rushed for 100 yards on 22 carries, which was his first 100-yard game of the season. "I thought Eddie played well," McCarthy said. "He was given more opportunities. He was decisive and ran behind his pads."
Fantasy Tip: Lacy was assisted by FB John Kuhn, who was used as a lead blocker on 20 of the 34 runs in Week 11. Lacy ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) will have a decent matchup against the Chicago Bears, but at a lofty FantasyScore fee. Starks ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is at a midrange price, but Lacy clearly has the juice right now.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) and RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) were both limited in practice Monday, Nov. 23. However, the Packers didn't actually practice Monday, so the designations are an estimation.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy likely did enough to earn his starting job back in Week 11, as long as he stays healthy. He should be a capable RB2 in the matchup against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving if he's starting. Adams had a disappointing Week 11, but you can't ignore the 32 targets he had in the previous two weeks combined. He wouldn't be a terrible flex play on FantasyScore against Chicago.

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (rib, chest), OT Bryan Bulaga (knee), CB Micah Hyde (hip), C Corey Linsley (ankle), WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) and DT Mike Pennel (quadriceps) did not practice Monday, Nov. 23. S Morgan Burnett (ankle), LB Jayrone Elliott (ankle), OG T.J. Lang (shoulder), LB Clay Matthews (ankle, knee), CB Damarious Randall (hamstring), FB Aaron Ripkowski (ankle) and OG Josh Sitton were limited. The Packers didn't actually practice Monday, so the report is an estimation.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb has just two catches for 24 yards on nine targets in the Week 11 win over the Minnesota Vikings. He had two to three drops and wasn't on the same page with QB Aaron Rodgers.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb saved his stat line with a touchdown catch against the Vikes. He was also targeted a total of 22 times the previous two games, so Rodgers continues to look his way. However, as a Cobb owner you have to be a bit worried about the poor conversion rate and the lack of chemistry he has with Rodgers right now.
