• Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 9/27/16 5:41am ET

    Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) has a high ankle sprain that could cost him some time.

    Huddle Up: The Packers have a bye in Week 4, but Cook and counterpart Richard Rodgers are only fringe options to own in fantasy at this point.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB
    Posted 9/25/16 11:52am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 12-for-18 for 174 yards and four touchdowns in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers had some problems in the first two games of the season but is back to his normal self in Week 3. He is a must-start player in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 9/25/16 11:59am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught six passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Nelson has started the season off strong and appears to be completely recovered from his torn anterior cruciate ligament. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 9/25/16 1:48pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ran 17 times for 103 yards in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: Although Lacy didn't score, he did help the Packers' ground game show off a bit and forced the Lions to respect both the run and the pass. Lacy's game fluctuates from week to week, however, so beware if you put him in your lineup.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB
    Posted 9/25/16 1:39pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns and finished with 204 yards passing Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers completed two-thirds of his passes and allowed no interceptions in the win. After last week's shaky performance against the Minnesota Vikings, Rodgers snapped back to the quarterback all fantasy owners knew and loved.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 9/25/16 1:55pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught two touchdown passes and finished with 101 yards receiving Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Nelson and QB Aaron Rodgers established their rhythm early and often in this game, making Nelson a solid WR1 or WR2 option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Mike McCarthy - HC
    Posted 9/24/16 7:24pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is averaging 3.0 yards per carry this season when used as a running back, but head coach Mike McCarthy said Cobb hasn't had enough carries to make a judgement on the effectiveness of the package.

    Huddle Up: The Green Bay offense continues to lack explosive plays in all areas, and Cobb's value is suffering as a result. Consider him a WR3 against the Detroit Lions in Week 3.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 9/23/16 6:54am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is expected to receive more carries after head coach Mike McCarthy said he wanted to give the backs more rushing attempts.

    Huddle Up: Lacy has 26 carries for 111 yards and no scores and a 17-yard reception. More work could put him in line to be a solid RB2 against the Detroit Lions this week.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 9/15/16 7:20am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson admitted he had heavy legs in Week 1 in which he played 54 of the 64 offensive plays. He also said he didn't have to clear any mental hurdles during the course of the game, never overthinking the fact that he was playing on a surgically repaired knee.

    Huddle Up: Nelson had six grabs for 32 yards and a score in Week 1, and it's normal for someone to miss a season and have conditioning to do. He's a high-end WR2 option in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 9/7/16 10:52pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy averaged 5.7 yards per carry in limited action during the preseason, and he looked explosive and powerful as ever. When asked if he is ready to start the season he had a simply reply. 'Physically, yeah. Mentally, totally,' Lacy said Wednesday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Lacy spent a good chunk of the season working on his weight and conditioning, and he is looking to rebound after a disappointing 2015. Lacy remains a high-end RB2, and he might re-emerge as a trusted RB1 by season's end if his conditioning is as good as advertised and he can keep the weight off and remain healthy.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 9/5/16 4:33pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will not have any restrictions during the team's Week 1 game, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Nelson did not play during the preseason but appears ready for a full workload against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He should be one of the main targets in the passing game and is a fine starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 9/1/16 8:53pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he is 'ready to go' for Week 1 during an interview Thursday, Sept. 1.

    Huddle Up: Nelson missed all of last season and didn't appear in the preseason, and while the 31-year-old offers WR1 potential as Aaron Rodgers' top target, be careful not to reach for him before the third round. There is no guarantee he will return to his 2014 form.

  • Randall Cobb - WR
    Posted 8/30/16 6:16am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb sprained the AC joint in his right shoulder in the third preseason game last season, and he never fully recovered the entire season. The injury kept him from lifting weights, and he lost strength. 'I lost a lot of weight last year during the season,' Cobb said. 'It doesn't help when you can't do much upper-body (training) to hold your strength. Yeah, obviously, it weighed a lot on me but I feel great right now, and that's the plan - to try to maintain my weight and try to stay as injury-free as I can.'

    Huddle Up: Cobb had an underwhelming 79-829-6 season, but he was also hurt by the loss of Jordy Nelson. Nelson is back, and Cobb should be back to the WR2 image he cemented in fantasy.

  • Morgan Burnett - S
    Posted 8/29/16 10:32am ET

    Green Bay Packers FS Morgan Burnett (back) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 29, for the first time since before the preseason opener.

    Huddle Up: Burnett had an injury-plagued year in 2015, but he remains a top-flight option at safety in IDP leagues that could come at a discount.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/29/16 3:53pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Aug. 29. Nelson said he does not expect to play in the final preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Nelson should be ready for the start of the regular season and will be a main part of the team's passing game. He can be a No. 1 wide receiver in all fantasy leagues and likely will be selected in the first two or three rounds of drafts.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB
    Posted 8/26/16 5:04pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be the starting quarterback in the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Friday, Aug. 26, but is not expected to play more than a quarter.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers does not need much playing time during the preseason, so he probably will see a few series. Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and should be one of the first quarterbacks selected in all drafts.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/23/16 6:57pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson worked with QB Aaron Rodgers in practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, but Nelson was once again held out of competitive, 11-on-11 periods. He might not play in any preseason games, and he and Rodgers might only have a handful of practices together before the Week 1 opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, Rodgers believes it will be enough. 'Because I know exactly where he's going to be,' Rodgers said. 'That's the beauty of us playing together for a long time.'

    Huddle Up: Nelson is being held out to preserve him and not test his injury too much before the games count for real. He is expected to be 100 percent for the regular season and fantasy owners can depend upon him as a WR1 in most formats. However, with a player coming off a major injury it's a good idea to load up with plenty of depth at the position in case there are setbacks.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/22/16 9:35am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will do individual drills Monday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/22/16 3:27pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was not wearing a brace on his surgically repaired knee during practice Monday, Aug. 22.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/20/16 11:24am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/18/16 5:39pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 8/18/16 9:17pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had nine carries for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 20-12 preseason win over the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB
    Posted 8/17/16 9:03am ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been taking primarily scout-team reps in practice and may not play against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: It'd be a bit surprising if Rodgers doesn't see at least a little action this week, given he'll almost certainly sit out on the final preseason game, but the veteran has proven he doesn't need much work to come out firing. Either way, he's a high-end No. 1 quarterback come Week 1.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/17/16 7:15pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will be held out of the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 18, against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Nelson is expected to be ready for the regular season and he will be a bona fide WR1 in all fantasy formats if he can return to his pre-injury form. So far there is no reason to believe he won't be 100 percent by Week 1.

  • Davante Adams - WR
    Posted 8/17/16 7:19pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Randall Cobb - WR
    Posted 8/15/16 8:45am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (calf) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 14, after missing the first preseason game Friday, Aug. 12.

    Huddle Up: It appears Cobb was dealing with a minor injury and should play in the next preseason game. Cobb should be one of the main targets in the passing game this season and will be a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jeff Janis - WR
    Posted 8/15/16 9:08am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis (hand) does not have a timetable for his return, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Janis will not practice this week and will not play against the Oakland Raiders Thursday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Janis has little fantasy value since he's lower on Green Bay's depth chart. He should only be drafted in deeper leagues as a late-round flier.

  • Julius Peppers - LB
    Posted 8/15/16 11:14pm ET

    Green Bay Packers LBs Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers among four players who will be suspended by Thursday, Aug. 25, if they do not comply with the National Football League's probe into performance-enhancing drugs. The suspension would be for conduct detrimental, and separate from any possible discipline the players would face under the league's drug policies.

    Huddle Up: Matthews, Peppers, Steelers LB James Harrison and free agent LB Mike Neal are the four players facing suspension if they don't cooperate with the NFL. For fantasy purposes, the Packers defense would be hit the hardest if the four players listed are forced to miss time.

  • Jeff Janis - WR
    Posted 8/14/16 2:14pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis (hand) will not participate in practice this week and there is no timetable for his return, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

    Huddle Up: Tough (literal) break for Janis out of the preseason gate as he'll miss time with his fractured right hand. Look for more from Green Bay's other reserve receivers, most notably Davante Adams and Jared Abbrederis, in his absence.
