Fri, 28 Oct 2016 14:15:54 -0700
Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle), CB Damarious Randall (groin), CB Quinten Rollins (groin) and RB James Starks (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 28, and have been ruled out for Week 8. OG T.J. Lang (hip) and LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. The Packers did not practice, so there are estimations.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson received only two carries in the last game but should be more involved in Week 8. Jackson should be owned in deeper leagues at this point, but he is not a great option since he will he sharing carries with other players.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 14:09:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery has been involved in the running and passing game over the last two weeks and will continue to see time at running back and receiver. He should be an attractive flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb should be able to play against the Atlanta Falcons and has been targeted at least 11 times in each of the last three games. Cobb should be a solid No. 2 wide receiver for all fantasy owners.

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle), CB Damarious Randall (groin), CB Quinten Rollins (groin), OG T.J. Lang (hip) and RB James Starks (knee) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 27. LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson is expected to be more involved this week, but he'll likely still be splitting repetitions with Knile Davis and Ty Montgomery. He's worth a pickup in deeper leagues, but starting him might be getting a little too cute with the roster.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 14:08:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The illness Montgomery has been dealing with has not been disclosed, but it should subside before gameday. Montgomery's versatile has made him a valuable fantasy weapon of late and he deserves WR2 consideration in a possible high-scoring affair with the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb is looking iffy for this weekend's tilt and we may not know if he's active or not until game time. He is a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 if he does play, but have a backup plan ready in case he doesn't progress this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be a big part of the running game if the team determines Don Jackson's hand injury presents a ball-security risk. The matchup against the Atlanta Falcons isn't great, though, and the team threw it a whopping 56 times last week. If Davis is the lead back, he may not have enough rushes to offset the tough matchup. He's a flex option for Week 8.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will meet the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8 on the road. The Falcons rank last in the NFC in pass defense, allowing 294.3 yards per game. The Falcons have given up 15 pass touchdowns, third-most in the league.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has struggled by his standards, especially lately, but he remains a must-start fantasy option for this ultra-favorable matchup in the ATL.

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle), LB Clay Matthews (hamstring), CB Damarious Randall (groin), CB Quinten Rollins (groin) and RB James Starks (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 26. OG T.J. Lang (hip) was limited.
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 13:59:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery's versatility has been in full display the last couple weeks and he's proven his worth. He has suddenly become a big fantasy weapon and will ride his success into WR2 territory in what could be a shootout with the Atlanta Falcons.
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 13:52:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cobb has seen a great influx of targets the last three weeks. He has been targeted 37 times in that span, resulting in 256 yards and two touchdowns. He is undoubtedly the Packers' possession receiver and should be viewed as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 in a possible aerial assault versus the Atlanta Falcons. This is assuming Cobb is healthy and doesn't regress in practice, of course.
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 06:44:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jackson could play a meaningful role with Ty Montgomery forced to leave his receiver post and play running back with newcomer Knile Davis. He probably isn't worth starting against the Atlanta Falcons, though.
