• 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Jeff Janis - WR
    Posted 8/13/16 10:53am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis (hand) may miss significant time because at least one of the bones in his hand is fractured, according a source. Janis suffered the injury during practice Wednesday, Aug. 10, and did not play in the first preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Janis was listed with the third-team offense. This injury ends his chances of moving up the depth chart. Janis is a good special teams player. He also had a big game in Green Bay's playoff loss to the Cardinals last year but he's never earned the trust of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers coaching staff. He's off the fantasy radar unless the Packers suffer injuries to the receiver position.

  • Randall Cobb - WR
    Posted 8/10/16 8:59am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb continued to see significant opportunities as a third-down back in practice on Tuesday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Cobb has lined up in the backfield before, but if the team expands that aspect of his game it could lead to a marked uptick in receptions. While it's worth keeping an eye on, Cobb is still best drafted as a WR2 after a disappointing 2015.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 8/10/16 8:59am ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was back at practice on Tuesday, Aug. 9, after tweaking his ankle last week. It led to him being listed as questionable heading into the Hall of Fame Game.

    Huddle Up: It's good that Lacy's injury didn't cost him much time on the practice field, which is likely due to his weight loss. If healthy, he figures to operate ahead of James Starks, but the Alabama product carries plenty of risk as a weak RB1 or favorable secondary target.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 8/10/16 8:59am ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (foot) made a positive impression during his first training camp action, hauling in several impressive grabs in practice on Tuesday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Signed to a free-agent deal during the offseason, Cook is competing with holdover Richard Rodgers for the No. 1 tight end job. If he can outlast Rodgers, Cook would be an interesting reserve with upside.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 8/9/16 7:15pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (foot) has been cleared and is coming off the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 9, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cook still should have ample time to get up to speed in his new offense, and when he does, he'll make a the Pack's TE situation a fantasy-unfriendly platoon with incumbent Richard Rodgers.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 8/8/16 8:45am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) might return from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list next week, QB Aaron Rodgers said Sunday, Aug. 7. Previously there had been no confirmation from the team's management on a timetable for Nelson's return.

    Huddle Up: If Nelson is 100% healthy for the regular-season opener, he is a top-notch WR1 in all fantasy leagues. His inclusion in the lineup also helps inch up the value of Aaron Rodgers as the gunslinger will benefit from a full arsenal.

  • Joe Callahan - QB
    Posted 8/7/16 12:48pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Joe Callahan will start the preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Aug. 7. QBs Aaron Rodgers and Brett Hundley will not play in the game.

    Huddle Up: Yes, Callahan -- the grandson of "Dirty" Harry Callahan of 1970s/80s movie fame -- gets the call tonight in the first game of the NFL preseason. Must-see-TV to be sure. (BTW, only kidding on a certain Clint Eastwood character reference here)

  • John Kuhn - RB
    Posted 8/6/16 12:41am ET

    Free-agent FB John Kuhn (Packers) will sign with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: A fan favorite in Green Bay, Kuhn was one of the top blocking backs in the NFL last season. The Saints don't use a fullback often but Kuhn will help lead the way for Mark Ingram when he's on the field.

  • Aaron Rodgers - QB
    Posted 8/5/16 3:22pm ET

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (rest) was given the night off from practice Thursday, August 4, by head coach Mike McCarthy, which is a 'telltale sign' he will not play in the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, August 7.

    Huddle Up: Yeah, somehow, we don't think Rodgers is in need of an extra preseason game.

  • Ty Montgomery - WR
    Posted 8/4/16 8:54am ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) shared details of his ankle surgery Wednesday, Aug. 3. He said his surgery contained three parts: tight ropes inserted into his ligaments to hold them in place, a cartilage repair and - perhaps most serious - a microfracture procedure on his talus, or the bone between the heel and fibula and tibia. Montgomery offered no timetable for his return, although he is cleared to run and even run some routes.

    Huddle Up: Montgomery is one of many Packers on the Physically Unable to Perform list. With Jordy Nelson healthy this season, and Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis in the mix, Montgomery needs to get back on the field before falling too far behind on the depth chart. This injury likely robs any upside he may have offered.

  • Jared Abbrederis - WR
    Posted 7/31/16 8:41pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis has impressed in camp while WR Davante Adams and WR Jeff Janis have been quiet in the early going.

    Huddle Up: The Pack are looking for WRs to step up following last season's disappointing showing by the position group, and Abbrederis certainly is making a case to be included on your late-round radar.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 7/27/16 2:52pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (foot) does not have a timetable for a return from foot surgery, although a league source said Tuesday, July 26, that he might be on track to return by the second week of preseason.

    Huddle Up: Cook could end up as a sneaky fantasy backup since he lands in Green Bay where he'll play with a top QB for the first time in his career. Cook topped out with a 49-759-3 stat line back in TEN but never but never managed more than a mediocre season with the Rams for three years. Aaron Rodgers is a major upgrade for Cook.

  • Eddie Lacy - RB
    Posted 7/27/16 2:52pm ET

    Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy was a bit slimmer on the first day of training camp Tuesday, July 26, then he was for organized team activities (OTAs). He went back to P90X trainer Tony Horton for a second time this offseason, getting down to an estimated 240 pounds according to beat writer Pete Dougherty.

    Huddle Up: Lacy is provoking more confidence in fantasy drafts this year hoping that he can rediscover the form that had him with 1566 total yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 7/26/16 12:50pm ET

    Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, July 26. Head coach Mike McCarthy said there are no long-term concerns with Nelson, and he's likely to be activated at some point in training camp.

    Huddle Up: Since he's nearly had a full year since his preseason knee injury last August, Nelson's receovery looks to be nearly complete, but it would be completely understandable if the Pack played it safe with him this preseason.

  • Jordy Nelson - WR
    Posted 7/26/16 3:57pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list because he recently tweaked his other knee, and not his knee that required season-ending surgery last year. Nelson added Week 1 is not in jeopardy, but he does not know when he will be ready to practice during training camp.

    Huddle Up: Yikes -- not what Nelson's fantasy owners and Packer Nation wanted to hear, but it certainly sounds like it could've been worse. It's not time to drop Nelson on your WR board, but a little more deep thought needs to take place when weighing him with the other mid-to-low-end WR1s. In the meantime, don't expect to see Nelson much -- if at all -- this preseason.

  • Richard Rodgers - TE
    Posted 7/22/16 1:45pm ET

    Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers is expected to start over TE Jared Cook, not just in 2016, but for the next few seasons, according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. An advantage Rodgers has this season is that he is in better shape after weighing up to 272 pounds last year.

    Huddle Up: This is a reminder not to overlook the third-year tight end -- who finished ninth among fantasy tight ends last season -- in favor of the shiny new free-agent acquisition, but in all, Cook's arrival knocks both out of legitimate draftable position with a target split fully expected.
