Fantasy Tip: Rodgers shouldn't need to see much game action this preseason in order to be ready. Rodgers should be one of the top quarterbacks in all drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson appears to be on track for the start of the regular season and likely will be a big part of the passing game in 2016. Owners in most leagues should consider Nelson as a low-end No. 1 receiver that likely will selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts.

Fantasy Tip: The question about Nelson is he's 31 and coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He's a low-end WR1 in fantasy that could return to fantasy dominance despite his age.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will work one-on-one as much as they can in practice Monday, Aug. 22, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It will be Nelson's first practice of the offseason and he will be limited to individual drills. It is still unclear whether or not Nelson will play this preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Finally, Nelson is practicing. He has some catching up to do, but he's already familiar with the offense and should be focused on getting to full health before Week 1. Even coming off a serious injury, Nelson is a fringe WR1 with optimal value in standard formats.

Fantasy Tip: That's good to hear concerning Adams, considering he was mostly a disappointment a season ago, even with Green Bay missing Jordy Nelson all year. Even with Nelson back, Adams should still be heavily involved as the slot receiver, and is certainly worth monitoring for his potential on a high-powered offense. He deserves a spot on the back-end of most rosters for his ceiling.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a down year, Lacy could slip a bit in drafts and up providing RB1 numbers for a RB2 price. If he is still on the board in the fourth round, don't hesitate to pull the trigger.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) went through pregame warm-ups in full pads prior to the team's preseason contest Thursday, August 18, versus the Oakland Raiders. He participated in individual position drills, even receiving passes against defensive backs. It was his first time wearing pads on a football field since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the second preseason game last year.
Fantasy Tip: This is very encouraging news for the star receiver, as it should ensure that he's ready to go for Week 1. As long as that's the case, Nelson can be drafted early on as a WR1, with potential to do big things in 2016. In his last season two years ago, the 31-year-old hauled in career highs of 98 receptions for 1,519 yards to go with 13 touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers also didn't suit up for the preseason opener, but there's no concern, as he's merely being rested. As is always the case, Rodgers will be entering the new season as one of the game's top signal-callers. He should be one of the first quarterbacks taken off the board.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams has had some good moments and some bad ones in training camp, according to beat writer Tom Silverstein. It is believed Adams needs to make a statement in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, against the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Tip: Adams has plenty of company at receiver, and even if he makes the team he is likely to be the No. 4 or 5 receiver at best. He has a chance to shine last season due to several injuries, but this season with more receivers in the mix his fantasy appeal is rather minimal.

Green Bay Packers C JC Tretter is getting a chance to audition for the starting center job, and he is expected to start Thursday, Aug. 18, against the Oakland Raiders with C Corey Linsley (hamstring) sidelined for a fourth straight week.
