Packers | Jordy Nelson full go Thursday

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:20:16 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson looks good to go for Week 3 after leaving early in Week 2. Randall Cobb's status if iffy right now, which make Nelson an even more attractive play. That being said, Nelson faces a Cincinnati Bengals defense that has been stingy against the pass so far in 2017. You don't want to sit Nelson, just lower expectations somewhat.

Packers | Randall Cobb still sidelined

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 10:44:28 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) has yet to practice this week after not practicing Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb's status is iffy for Week 3. If he can't play then Jordy Nelson (if he plays) and Davante Adams will see the lion's share of Aaron Rodgers' targets. Martellus Bennett is also a quality start after receiving a team-high 11 targets last week.

Packers | Jordy Nelson expects to play Sunday

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 20:56:17 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) said his "expectations are to play" in the team's Week 3 game Sunday, Sept. 24, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: As long as he is able to suit up, Nelson should have a delicious matchup on tap and be able to deliver his usual WR1 value opposite the reeling 0-2 Bengals. While Cincinnati has only yielded a combined 33 points in their first two games, Aaron Rodgers is typically at his best at Lambeau Field, and Nelson figures to be one of the usual beneficiaries of that performance.

Packers | GB to lighten Ty Montgomery's workload?

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 20:44:08 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery figures to receive less work in the weeks ahead, according to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Montgomery has played more snaps (139) than any other running back in the NFL -- putting him on pace for 1,112 -- and there have been just four tailbacks who logged more than 900 snaps in a season over the last five years. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he's "definitely aware of it" and added, "That's what game plans are for."

Fantasy Tip: That last line is key, as the Packers have started out the season against two of the NFC's best teams (Seahawks and Falcons), which probably required such heavy usage of Montgomery. When the Packers play lesser opponents, it looks like Montgomery's work will be scaled back a bit to preserve his health, especially since this is his first full season as a running back. Either way, the former wide receiver has solidified himself as a legit RB1 in the early going.

Packers | Jordy Nelson practices in full

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:58:06 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson appears to be on track to play in Week 3 as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when he is healthy and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all leagues.

Packers | Randall Cobb does not practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:48:28 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb is considered day-to-day and likely will need to practice at some point this week if he wants to play in Week 3. He has played well in the first two weeks of the season and could be a starting option for owners if he is active, but they will need other options ready to use if Cobb sits out.

Packers | Martellus Bennett struggling with fundamentals?

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 19:33:15 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett finished with five catches for 47 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons but committed four drops - a problem offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett believes is rooted in fundamentals. "It really just always goes back to being fundamentally sound, trusting his training. He has really good hands. We just have to be fundamentally sound in those situations, not allowing the ball to cross your eyes, things like that, extending for the football," Bennett told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is only two tight ends - Jason Witten (22) and Zach Ertz (18) - have been targeted more often than Bennett (17). The bad news is Bennett only has eight catches for 90 yards so far. While it is troubling Bennett would be struggling with fundamentals in his age-30 season, his track record is far too good to believe he won't eventually get things figured out. Owners should stick it out with him and buy low if possible.

Packers | Jordy Nelson 50-50 for Week 3

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 05:16:04 -0700

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) is "50-50" to play in Week 3, according to a source, but his quadriceps strain isn't considered serious.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers face the 0-2 Cincinnati Bengals this week, and if Nelson goes, he could be on a snap count. Randall Cobb (shoulder), who was also nicked up, is day to day. Nelson would be a WR2 candidate if he suits up. Cobb could graduate to WR2 status if he were to play and Nelson didn't.
