Fantasy Tip: Allison had three catches for 46 yards against the Dallas Cowboys last week. His upside will be limited if Jordy Nelson (ribs) returns, but he's a flex option against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Adams had 12 catches for 74 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8. He has a 23-276-4 line the last four games in what has been a breakout year. He's a sneaky WR2 whether Jordy Nelson (ribs) is back or not.

Fantasy Tip: Atlanta bent a little bit against the Seattle Seahawks last week with a 10-171-1 line against WRs. Adams has a 23-276-4 line the last four games, but he is battling an ankle issue. He's a sneaky WR2 whether Jordy Nelson (ribs) is back or not.

Updating previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) sat out practice with a left hamstring injury Wednesday, Jan. 18, but did so for "precautionary reasons". He did not commit to participating in practice on Thursday, Jan. 19, or if he was trying to work his way through the injury via rehab.
Fantasy Tip: Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams are already looking dicey for Sunday, so the Packers are likely to need Allison at some point. It's not unthinkable Green Bay will be forced to roll out Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis as outside receivers with Randall Cobb working out of the slot in three-wide packages this weekend, although it sounds like Allison has a much better shot at playing than Nelson or Adams. Allison could be worthy of flex consideration in some leagues if he is cleared in time.

Updating a previous story, Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is reportedly dealing with an ankle similar to the one that hobbled him for most of the 2015 season, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein.
Fantasy Tip: Adams isn't even going to be allowed to practice until at least Saturday, so there's certainly reason for concern. With Jordy Nelson unlikely to play and Adams trending in that direction, Aaron Rodgers may not have enough weapons to go toe-to-toe with the Atlanta Falcons' high-scoring offense. Randall Cobb and Jared Cook are shaping up as solid, high-floor DFS plays this weekend.

Updating a previous story, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) admitted he worked "slowly" back in practice Wednesday, Jan. 18. He was designated as limited in practice and would not put any odds on his playing in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Atlanta Falcons.
Fantasy Tip: Less than two weeks removed from breaking multiple ribs, it seems highly unlikely Nelson will be ready to go this weekend. Even if does find a way to play, he will almost certainly be on a snap count. With Davante Adams also ailing, Randall Cobb and Jared Cook are in play as target monsters. Geronimo Allison, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis could all see their roles increase as well.

Green Bay Packers FS Morgan Burnett (quadriceps), LB Julius Peppers (non-injury), RB James Starks (concussion) and C JC Tretter (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 18. WR Jeff Janis (quadriceps), OG T.J. Lang (foot) and CB Quinten Rollins (concussion, neck) were limited during practice. LB Jayrone Elliott (hand), LB Clay Matthews (shoulder) and LB Nick Perry (hand) fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much Nelson did during practice, but it is a good sign that he was able to be on the field Wednesday. Owners will need to check on his status later in the week to see if he will be able to play in the NFC Championship game. He will be a risky option for owners but can be used in fantasy leagues if he is active.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 15:35:37 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Crosby should be ready for the NFC Championship game and will be a fine starting option for fantasy owners.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 15:24:47 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Allison has been a productive part of the passing game over the last several games and is coming off a 46-yard performance in the Divisional round. Allison's role likely will be affected by the availability of Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. Allison has a chance to be a flex option in some leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the week to see if Adams is in any danger of missing the NFC Championship game. He has posted 201 yards and one touchdown in the first two weeks of the postseason and should have a solid role if he is able to play. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 11:42:26 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Nelson probably will not do much during practice this week and may be a game-time decision for the NFC Championship game, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Nelson may be limited if he is active for the game, which makes him a risky option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers' medical staff is known to be among the most conservative in the NFL, so the odds are long Nelson will suit up two weeks after suffering broken ribs. He appears to be getting in some light workouts, so perhaps a return for the Super Bowl - should the Packers advance - is possible. Until then, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison and an injured Davante Adams figure to be Green Bay's top three receivers once again.
