Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/3/15 4:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is doubtful to play Sunday, Oct. 4, against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Adams isn't going to play Sunday. Ty Montgomery will be the Packers' third receiver Sunday versus the 49ers. Montgomery is only worth a flier in deeper leagues.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/2/15 8:20pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 2, but is questionable for Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Despite being listed as questionable, Adams isn't expected to play Sunday. Ty Montgomery will be the Packers' third wide receiver against the 49ers. He has some Flex appeal in 14-team leagues.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/29/15 12:56am ET
Green Packers WR Randall Cobb caught seven passes for 91 yards and three of Aaron Rodgers' five touchdown passes Monday, Sept. 28 in a 38-28 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Cobb was targeted a team-high 12 times and demonstrated he's past any shoulder issues that might be lingering from his preseason injury. Fellow WRs James Jones and Ty Montgomery also had scoring receptions Monday night and will continue to be involved, but there's nothing like owning the top target of the league's hottest QB so Cobb owners, enjoy the fantasy spoils.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 9/29/15 4:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is expected to miss some time after aggravating his high ankle sprain in the Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Injury or otherwise, the second-year Adams has failed to take advantage of his starting opportunity following Jordy Nelson's injury, catching only nine passes for 92 yards. Meanwhile, this only further boosts the stock of fellow Pack WRs Randall Cobb, James Jones and Ty Montgomery who combined for 16 catches, 244 yards and five TDs Monday after Adams departed.
Andrew Quarless - TEPosted 9/29/15 5:04pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless (knee) suffered a medial collateral ligament sprain in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a source. He will be out four to six weeks.
Huddle Up: While it's another tough break for Quarless, it fully cements the No. 1 TE role for Richard Rodgers, who's caught eight passes for 65 yards and a TD so far and remains a solid TE2 option.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 9/28/15 9:07pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams started the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, Sept. 28 but departed after the first series and was immediately seen on the bench with his shoe off and an ice pack on his left ankle. He will not return.
Huddle Up: The second-year wideout was targeted twice on the Packers' first series, but it looks as if he re-aggravated his ankle injury from Week 2 that had him listed as probable coming into the contest. Rookie WR Ty Montgomery capped the drive with a TD reception and likely will be the biggest playing-time beneficiary.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/26/15 9:56pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Lacy will be a game-time decision which is tough on fantasy owners because he plays on Monday night. If Lacy can't go, James Starks will start and be a RB2 against the Chiefs.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/26/15 9:56pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Cobb is fully healthy and ready to roll against a Chiefs' defense that is struggling to stop receivers after two games. Cobb is a WR1 this week versus Kansas City.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/25/15 2:17pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will take part in individual drills Friday, Sept. 25, after sitting out of practice Thursday, Sept. 24, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. WR Davante Adams (ankle) will also do individual drills Friday, and all indications are that he will be able to play in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: It's a solid stride for both players, but Lacy definitely remains the more iffy of the two for Monday night, and it might come down to a game-time decision which won't do Lacy's fantasy owners much good unless they have James Starks ready to plug in.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/24/15 1:29pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) and WR Davante Adams (ankle) are both improving but don't appear quite ready to practice Thursday, Sept. 24. 'Eddie and Davante have been here pretty much most of the day, most of the three days. They're getting better. They'll both do some pre-practice work and then we'll see from there, but I don't have high expectations of them practicing today,' head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday.
Huddle Up: The Pack have an extra day to work with this week as they don't play until Monday, and McCarthy has said it would be possible for Lacy to suit up and start in Week 3 without a lot of practice reps. Adams did return to Sunday night's game after sustaining his ankle injury, but his mobility was limited. Definitely stay tuned here.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/24/15 6:39pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) missed practice Thursday, Sept. 24.
Huddle Up: It was the Pack's first practice of the week so it wasn't totally unexpected. Let's see if Lacy is able to get on the field either Friday or Saturday.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/23/15 12:12am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will test his ankle in practice Thursday, Sept. 24, as the team prepares for its Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 28, against the Kansas City Chiefs. The first padded practice will be Friday, Sept. 25. A source close to Lacy said the back does not have a fracture, but the area of concern is the ligaments around his ankle.
Huddle Up: In the meantime, James Starks will be among the hottest commodities on league waiver wires this week. Hopefully, he's not available on yours if you own Lacy.
James Starks - RBPosted 9/21/15 9:02am ET
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks carried 20 times for 95 yards in the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks, and he added four receptions for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Starks was solid in relief of Eddie Lacy after the Packers' starter left with an ankle injury. No official word yet on how much time, if any, Lacy will miss but it's clear Starks is the fantasy handcuff to have.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/21/15 9:02am ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) had X-rays Sunday, Sept. 20, and they were negative, according to a source. However, there is no firm timeline yet on how much time Lacy might be forced to miss.
Huddle Up: James Starks filled in for Lacy Sunday night and will do so again if Lacy is unable to go in Week 3.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/21/15 3:11pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy's (ankle) ankle injury is considered minor, and he has a chance to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Lacy missed most of Sunday's game against Seattle and while the injury is considered minor, he's not a lock to play in Week 3. James Starks should be targeted on the waiver wire in case Lacy can't go against the Chiefs.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/20/15 9:42pm ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has been taken to the locker room in the first half of the Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks due to his right ankle injury. He had his ankle re-taped, tried to put weight on it and was unable to do so. He is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Lacy doesn't look like he'll be returning to the game. James Starks will will play for Lacy and replace him if he's out for any period of time after the Seattle game.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/14/15 9:31pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he did not suffer any setbacks with his shoulder during the Week 1 game against the Chicago Bears. He said he is not sure when his injured shoulder will be completely healed.
Huddle Up: Cobb played 54 of the Packers' 60 offensive snaps but was targeted a modest five times -- catching all five for 31 yards and a TD -- in the 31-23 win over the Bears. He remains a sure-fire starter but the Pack likely won't have him shoulder too heavy of a load for a week more weeks -- especially with third WR James Jones making a quick adaptation to the offense.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/11/15 6:30pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) was limited in practice again Friday, Sept. 11, but he is listed as probable for Week 1 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: With the shoulder, there's reason to worry about a re-injury, but as long as Cobb is playing, he belongs in fantasy lineups.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/10/15 1:26pm ET
Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) has limited range of motion in his right shoulder as it heals, but he said he'll play Sunday, Sept. 13, in Week 1. Cobb practiced Wednesday, Sept. 9, with extra padding and protection beneath his jersey. Cobb said the 11-on-11 reps he did were valuable as he learns to understand and tolerate the pain of players hitting, bumping or making contact with his shoulder. Cobb also said his sleeping pattern has been disrupted due to the injury. 'I have to deal with this for a few weeks,' Cobb said. 'That's part of it. I'm going to do everything I can to protect myself, but I have to play fearless. I've always been a fearless player.'
Huddle Up: You have to admire Cobbs' determination, but his fantasy owners will be cringing Sunday every time he takes a hit on the shoulder.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/9/15 3:52pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb practiced Wednesday, Sept. 9 for the first time since spraining his shoulder Aug. 30 in a preseason game. He participated in all the individual drills, including punt and kickoff-return work.
Huddle Up: It's a good step in the right direction for Cobb's chances of playing Sunday against the Chicago Bears, but he likely didn't take much contact, either, and let's see how the remainder of his practice week goes first before making any definitive calls.
James Jones - WRPosted 9/6/15 10:05pm ET
Free-agent WR James Jones (Giants) has agreed to a deal to return to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Sept. 6, according to a source. The transaction won't be announced until Monday, Sept. 7, when the Packers make room on their 53-man roster.
Huddle Up: As expected, the former seven-year Packer is heading back to the tundra, and paired again with Aaron Rodgers -- a combo that combined for a league-high 14 TD receptions in 2012 -- and it should immediately register on the radar of fantasy GMs, especially those who are already considering using late-round picks on Jeff Janis or Ty Montgomery.
Brett Hundley - QBPosted 9/4/15 10:01am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley completed 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 236 and four touchdowns in a 38-10 preseason win over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Looks like the Packers have themselves another quality quarterback they can develop and turn into high draft picks--or at least a guy they can count on if something happens to Aaron Rodgers.
Richard Rodgers - TEPosted 9/3/15 8:40am ET
Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers is expected to see more opportunities in the passing game with WR Jordy Nelson (knee) done for the season.
Huddle Up: Aaron Rodgers' favorite receiver is whoever is open, and he sees the entire field as well as any quarterback. So it's only logical that rather than depend on Davante Adams to pick up the entire slack left by Nelson's absence the Packers will spread the wealth. As a result, Richard Rodgers' fantasy value is on the upswing.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 9/3/15 8:40am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy figures to see more responsibilities in the passing game with the loss of WR Jordy Nelson (knee) for the season.
Huddle Up: Makes sense that Aaron Rodgers would spread the ball around without his top receiver available--as well as getting the ball to Lacy in the open field.
Clay Matthews - LBPosted 9/2/15 2:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (knee, elbow) is practicing this week with expectations of playing in the final preseason game and Week 1.
Huddle Up: It would be slightly shocking to see Matthews running around out there in the final preseason game, but if he does play and gets through the game OK, you can be sure he'll be out there Week 1 against the Bears.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/2/15 8:43pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) said he'd be comfortable starting in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears even if he doesn't practice next week. However, wide receivers coach Alex Van Pelt would like to see Cobb play before the season opener. Van Pelt said it's realistic for Cobb to return before Week 1, and he has no doubts that Cobb could play at a high level against the Bears even without practice.
Huddle Up: Cobb and Aaron Rodgers have been playing for so long, they can probably roll out of bed and be on the same page. With Jordy Nelson out for the year if Cobb is healthy, he'll play.
Jeff Janis - WRPosted 9/2/15 11:32pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis is in the running for the No. 3 receiver job with WR Ty Montgomery, but beat writer Rob Reischel notes that Janis hasn't won over QB Aaron Rodgers yet. 'Jeff will have some great days and some days where mentally he's making too many mistakes,' Rodgers said. 'The talent and athleticism are there. We just need to see from all those guys battling for those two spots just some more consistency.'
Huddle Up: Inconsistency has been a problem for Janis but he's showed some big play potential in the preseason. Janis is battling with Ty Montgomery for the Packers' No. 3 job. Both players are guys to monitor throughout the season.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 9/2/15 11:32pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery appears to have the upper hand in the race for the No. 3 receiver job behind WRs Randall Cobb and Davante Adams with WR Jordy Nelson (knee) gone for the season.
Huddle Up: Both Montgomery and Janis will likely see time in the role but right now Montgomery appears to have a slight lead. Montgomery is a player to watch in the Packers' offense with Jordy Nelson out for the year.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 9/1/15 4:22pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery is dealing with hamstring tightness following practice Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Huddle Up: WR injuries seem to be hitting teams in waves this preseason, and lately it's been the Packers' turn. This is a tame injury, though, compared to some of the others, and the rookie third-rounder will have a week and a half to get ready for the regular-season opener.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/1/15 10:04pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb thinks his sprained right shoulder will be good to go to play in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears in 12 days. 'I don't plan on missing a game,' Cobb said. 'I'm doing everything in my power to get back before then.' However, there remains swelling in his shoulder, but he said he's doing much better than when he was injured in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday, Aug. 29. Cobb did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 1, but watched from the sidelines.
Huddle Up: Overly optimistic or not, Cobb's shoulder sounds like it won't be too much of a factor, and he still should be treated as a WR1 in all upcoming fantasy drafts.
