Green Bay Packers LB Sam Barrington (hamstring), DT Josh Boyd (knee) and WR Jarrett Boykin (groin) did not practice Monday, Sept. 29. LBs Brad Jones (quadriceps) and Clay Matthews (groin) were limited. The team didn't actually practice Monday, so the designations are an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Davante Adams ($3,900; 7.8% of the cap) is a good bargain bin flex option this week.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb has padded his point total this season by catching three touchdowns, but Nelson is clearly Aaron Rodgers' go-to weapon right now. Cobb will cost $7,4000 (14.8% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 4 and Nelson will cost $8,300 (16.6% of cap), but Nelson could be worth the extra cost because of the hefty amount of targets he has been seeing.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4. In his final meeting against the Bears in Week 15 of the 2012 season, he had six grabs for 115 yards. In his only meeting last season against the Bears, he managed two catches for 55 yards, and both grabs went for touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb is a solid value in FantasyScore at $7400 (or 14.8 percent of the salary cap), especially since he has three touchdown grabs in the first three games.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4. In last season's regular season finale against Chicago, Nelson went for 10 receptions and 161 yards, and he has at least four receptions and 67 yards in the past four meetings with the Bears.
Fantasy Tip: One thing that stands out for fantasy owners, Nelson has found the end zone just twice in nine meetings with the Bears, and that happened in the same game in Week 16 of the 2011 season. Due to his lack of career touchdowns against Chicago, he might be considered a little overpriced at $8300 in FantasyScore (or 16.6 percent of the salary cap).

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be facing the Chicago Bears in Week 4, a team he has had success against over the years. Over his past five full games against the Bears, he has tossed two or more touchdowns in four starts, while throwing for 283 or more yards in four of those outings. In Week 9 last season he was injured against Chicago after just two pass attempts.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is the third-most expensive option on the FantasyScore board at $8900 (or 17.8 percent of the salary cap), but he should at least be good for 275 yards and two touchdowns. The same cannot be said of the other similarly priced options on the board.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has faced his team's Week 4 opponent, the Chicago Bears, just twice. He posted a rushing touchdown in each matchup last season, and he ran for 150 yards on 22 carries in the Week 9 matchup against the Packers.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy has struggled during the early going, averaging a paltry 3.1 yards per carry while failing to find the end zone on the ground or through the air. In fact, his highest rush total of the season is 43 yards in Week 2. At $8000, his FantasyScore salary is a bit high, but with the Bears ranking just 26th in the NFL against the rush, good things could be just around the corner for the Packers runner.

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) and LB Brad Jones (quadriceps) are questionable for Week 4 against the Chicago Bears. OT Bryan Bulaga (knee), CB Davon House (knee), LB Clay Matthews (groin) and LB Nick Perry (wrist) are probable. Boykin didn't practice Friday, Sept. 26. Jones, Matthews and Perry were limited, while the others were full participants. The Packers didn't actually practice Friday, and the designations are an estimation.

Green Bay Packers LBs Brad Jones (quadriceps), Clay Matthews (groin) and Nick Perry (wrist) were limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 25. WR Jarrett Boykin (knee), OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) and CB Davon House (knee) participated fully.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy praised LB Julius Peppers, saying he is everything he hoped he would be. "He's definitely everything I thought he would be," McCarthy said. "It's not only if he's playing faster, but really how they all play together."

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is off to a slow start this season, and he offered an explanation for his struggles in Week 3 against the Detroit Lions. "I need to work on keeping my pads low," Lacy said. "There were a few times last week where I was running kind of high, and I just figured that out. This week, definitely get my pads down when I'm running." Even though Lacy had a costly fumble against the Lions early in the game, he's not worried about his ball security. It was his first fumble since his rookie debut in Week 1 last year.
Fantasy Tip: Lacy started slow last season, as well, before turning things on. Stay patient. The one worry is that the Packers offensive line won't open enough running lanes for Lacy to excel. Week 4 against the Chicago Bears could be a perfect opportunity for him to get going.
