Packers | Jared Cook won't practice this week

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 13:08:22 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) said he will not resume practicing this week as he continues to nurse a sprained right ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Cook hasn't played since Week 3, and Richard Rodgers has done little to warrant starter consideration. Green Bay's tight end situation is any easy one to avoid, at least until Cook returns.

Packers | Don Jackson uncertain for Week 8

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 21:49:24 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Don Jackson (hand) may not be available for the team's Week 8 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Head coach Mike McCarthy indicated it was "too early to tell" about Jackson's status. Jackson said an X-ray taken during the Thursday game "didn't look bad," but he did not return.

Fantasy Tip: Green Bay threw a ton against the Chicago Bears, and no doubt part of that was the absence of Jackson. The only healthy back in Green Bay right now is Knile Davis, who was acquired earlier in the week. Keep an eye on the situation, including the health of James Starks, leading up to the game against the Falcons.

Packers | Jordy Nelson limited to one catch

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:38:56 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson finished with one catch for nine yards on four targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson was targeted on a couple of patented deep balls off play-action, but a four-target effort on a night in which Aaron Rodgers attempted 56 passes is definitely cause for concern for his owners. The touchdowns that carried Nelson's value through the first four weeks of the season have dried up, and he has only 10 catches for 115 yards on 24 targets over the last three games. He's likely to draw shadow coverage in Week 8 from Atlanta Falcons top corner Desmond Trufant, which could mean he will turn in another disappointing effort next week.

Packers | Ty Montgomery tallies 126 total yards

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:31:55 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery delivered his second straight high-volume performance as a part-time receiver and part-time running back in a Week 7 victory over the Chicago Bears, finishing with 10 catches for 66 yards while adding nine carries for 60 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Montgomery played some running back in high school and college, so his added responsibilities arenít foreign to him. With that said, he looks like a natural coming out of the backfield and may be carving himself out a long-term niche as a Swiss Army knife for this offense. At this point, it wouldn't be shocking if he remains in a similar role once James Starks is able to return in a few weeks. He's already earned must-start status and should expect another 15 to 20 touches next week versus the Atlanta Falcons.

Packers | Randall Cobb finds end zone again

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 20:55:46 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb caught 11-of-15 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in a Week 7 victory over the Chicago Bears. Cobb also added five carries for 21 yards.

Fantasy Tip: As great as Cobb's final line was, it could have been even better. He had a potential first-quarter TD catch knocked away at the last second and couldn't quite get his second foot down inbounds on another potential first-half score. It finally came all together for him and Aaron Rodgers on a beautiful corner route late in the fourth quarter. Cobb is essentially serving as an extension of the running game with Green Bay's backfield in shambles. His current role makes him a solid WR2 in PPR with WR1 upside.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers flashes vintage fantasy form

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 20:43:15 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 39-of-56 for 326 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 7 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers & Co. squandered multiple red-zone opportunities, settling for two field goals in the first half. After Rodgers committed a fumble that led to a Bears' defensive touchdown to open the second half, things started clicking. Rodgers connected with Davante Adams for touchdowns on each of the next two drives and found Randall Cobb for a score on the following possession. With Ty Montgomery and Cobb serving as the primary rushing threats at the moment, Rodgers may be forced to attempt 50-plus passes more often. He is still a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Packers | Davante Adams explodes for 132 yards

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 20:37:29 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams played through a questionable tag due to a concussion he suffered in Week 6 and finished with 13 catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: All three marks are career highs. While Aaron Rodgers avoided Jordy Nelson like the plague Thursday night, Adams took advantage of multiple blown coverages en route to his best day as a pro while racking up 16 targets. Even though he hasn't been terribly efficient up to this point of his career, it might be time for owners to start trusting him. With Green Bay's backfield in shambles, the Packers may become a high-volume passing attack out of necessity, allowing Adams to post WR3 production on a regular basis.

Packers | Don Jackson departs with hand injury

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 19:15:00 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Don Jackson (hand) suffered a hand injury in the first half of the Thursday, Oct. 20, game against the Chicago Bears in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson was promoted from the practice squad earlier in the day but lasted only two carries before exiting. Receiver Ty Montgomery figures to be the lead back for the time being, while Knile Davis could eventually get some work despite being with the team less than three days. Regardless of the seriousness of Jackson's injury, look for Green Bay to pursue another running back in the coming days.
