Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 10/27/16 2:08pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (illness) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: 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.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/27/16 2:03pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.
Huddle Up: 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.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 10/26/16 1:59pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (illness) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: 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.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/26/16 1:52pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: 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.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 10/26/16 9:22pm ET
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.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has struggled by his standards, especially lately, but he remains a must-start fantasy option for this ultra-favorable matchup in the ATL.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 10/20/16 7:14am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery will see the majority repetitions at running back Thursday, Oct. 20, in Week 7, according to beat writer Rob Demovsky on Sirius XM Fantasy Radio.
Huddle Up: Conventional thinking would place Montgomery as a bust candidate against the Chicago Bears playing out of position. However, he could actually see more action as a receiver from the backfield. He wouldn't have the upside of the deeper routes, but in a PPR setting, he could wind up with a couple of points rushing and a normal receiving load. He'll be a boom-or-bust flex option.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/20/16 7:58am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has returned to his 2015 frame when team sources say he was between 255 and 265 pounds. However, Lacy was averaging 5.1 yards per carry before his ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Lacy is out this week, and he could miss multiple weeks with the ankle injury. Ty Montgomery is filling in against the Chicago Bears. He makes for a risky flex option in Week 7.
Don Jackson - RBPosted 10/20/16 10:29am ET
Green Bay Packers practice squad RB Don Jackson will be signed to the active roster and is expected to be active for the team's Week 7 game.
Huddle Up: There is a good chance that Jackson will receive most of the work at running back against the Chicago Bears because of the injuries to Eddie Lacy and James Starks. Jackson should be considered an attractive flex option in leagues over the next few weeks.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/20/16 10:17am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will need surgery on his ankle and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list. The Packers will decide later if Lacy will be able to play again this season.
Huddle Up: Don Jackson likely will be the main running back for the Packers for the time being with Ty Montgomery also receiving some carries in Week 7. Jackson should be at least a flex option in leagues over the next few weeks. Knile Davis may also receive some playing time at running back in the next week or two but should be avoided in leagues. James Starks probably will take over the starting job when he returns from his knee injury and can be a No. 2 running back.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/20/16 11:20am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 20. The team also signed practice squad RB Don Jackson to their active roster.
Huddle Up: Lacy will miss at least eight weeks and could miss the rest of the season depending on the severity of his ankle injury. Owners in most leagues can drop Lacy if they need a replacement. Jackson has a good chance to receive most of the carries until James Starks returns from his injury. Jackson can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/20/16 8:37pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams played through a questionable tag due to a concussion he suffered in Week 6 and finished with 13 catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: All three marks are career highs. While Aaron Rodgers avoided Jordy Nelson like the plague Thursday night, Adams took advantage of multiple blown coverages en route to his best day as a pro while racking up 16 targets. Even though he hasn't been terribly efficient up to this point of his career, it might be time for owners to start trusting him. With Green Bay's backfield in shambles, the Packers may become a high-volume passing attack out of necessity, allowing Adams to post WR3 production on a regular basis.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 10/20/16 8:43pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 39-of-56 for 326 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 7 victory over the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Rodgers & Co. squandered multiple red-zone opportunities, settling for two field goals in the first half. After Rodgers committed a fumble that led to a Bears' defensive touchdown to open the second half, things started clicking. Rodgers connected with Davante Adams for touchdowns on each of the next two drives and found Randall Cobb for a score on the following possession. With Ty Montgomery and Cobb serving as the primary rushing threats at the moment, Rodgers may be forced to attempt 50-plus passes more often. He is still a top-five fantasy quarterback.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/20/16 8:55pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb caught 11-of-15 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in a Week 7 victory over the Chicago Bears. Cobb also added five carries for 21 yards.
Huddle Up: As great as Cobb's final line was, it could have been even better. He had a potential first-quarter TD catch knocked away at the last second and couldn't quite get his second foot down inbounds on another potential first-half score. It finally came all together for him and Aaron Rodgers on a beautiful corner route late in the fourth quarter. Cobb is essentially serving as an extension of the running game with Green Bay's backfield in shambles. His current role makes him a solid WR2 in PPR with WR1 upside.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 10/20/16 9:38pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson finished with one catch for nine yards on four targets in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Nelson was targeted on a couple of patented deep balls off play-action, but a four-target effort on a night in which Aaron Rodgers attempted 56 passes is definitely cause for concern for his owners. The touchdowns that carried Nelson's value through the first four weeks of the season have dried up, and he has only 10 catches for 115 yards on 24 targets over the last three games. He's likely to draw shadow coverage in Week 8 from Atlanta Falcons top corner Desmond Trufant, which could mean he will turn in another disappointing effort next week.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/19/16 1:07pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: No surprise here. Lacy is dealing with an ankle injury that will force him to miss several weeks, as previously reported. James Starks is sidelined too, so it will likely be a mixture of Don Jackson, Knile Davis and Ty Montgomery at running back. Montgomery is the best bet to produce and should be claimed off waivers if available.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/19/16 1:33pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (back) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: Cobb has been upgraded every day of practice this week, so he'll be good to go Thursday night against the Chicago Bears. He and Jordy Nelson should be looked at frequently through the air since the Packers are hurting so much at running back. Cobb is comfortably in the WR2 conversation this week.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/19/16 1:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19, and is questionable to play in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Adams' status may not be decided until right before kickoff, so he'll really need to be monitored. The good news is that he did practice after not practicing yesterday. Even if Adams plays, though, he may be too big of a risk since he probably won't be 100 percent healthy. Look for better options if you have them.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/18/16 10:19am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) will not practice Tuesday, Oct. 18, and is still 'very sore', according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Lacy probably doesn't need a practice in order to play Thursday against the Chicago Bears, but the fact he is still 'very sore' does not bode well for his availability for that game. The Packers traded for Knile Davis on Tuesday morning, but he's obviously not going to process much of the playbook in 2 1/2 days. It is beginning to look as if receiver Ty Montgomery could handle the majority of snaps at running back this week, making him well worth an add in what figures to be a pass-heavy game plan.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/18/16 11:11am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is not expected to play Thursday, Oct. 20, against the Chicago Bears, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Packers are really hurting at running back heading into their Thursday night tilt. James Starks will probably be out as well, which would likely leave running back duties to newly acquired Knile Davis and WR Ty Montgomery. Montgomery is a sleeper play since he can catch and run the ball. Aaron Rodgers will probably be throwing a lot, though. Davis isn't a reliable option since he was just acquired.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/18/16 2:25pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (back) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Cobb didn't practice yesterday, so his limited status is promising. He may be limited tomorrow, too, in which case he could be a game-time decision for Thursday night. It seems like he's on the better side of playing, though, and should be viewed as a WR2 as Cobb and Jordy Nelson could be targeted heavily.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/18/16 2:13pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Concussions can take a while to recover from, and Adams only has until Thursday to be cleared to play. If he isn't cleared, then Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis could see increased targets behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Although, Nelson and Cobb are the only Green Bay receivers to seriously consider starting if Adams sits.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 10/18/16 3:33pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers admitted that he and the offense have been 'a little bit off', but he's confident that they'll get back on track soon.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is right. He just hasn't looked like himself for the most part this season. A lack of a running game hurts, but Rodgers is usually one of the more consistent passers in the league. Don't place him outside of QB1 territory just yet, though. Someone like Rodgers can only be in a slump for so long.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/18/16 5:50pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is expected to miss several weeks. He's dealing with more than just a sprained ankle.
Huddle Up: What exactly Lacy is dealing with was not disclosed, but there's now more credence to the Packers' acquisition of Knile Davis. James Starks will miss some time, too, so it will likely be Davis and WR Ty Montgomery who take over the backfield duties. Davis and Montgomery are worth a pickup in deeper leagues, but Aaron Rodgers will probably be passing more than usual. He remains a QB1 despite recent struggles.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 10/18/16 5:58pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 12-4 against the Chicago Bears in his career. In those 16 games he has thrown 35 touchdowns and just nine interceptions. Those 35 touchdowns are tied for the most against any team Rodgers has played, the Minnesota Vikings being the other team.
Huddle Up: It's been an off year for Rodgers and the Green Bay offense, but he just plain plays better against the Bears, and Thursday's game is at Lambeau Field. Fantasy owners may be sick of Rodgers underperforming, but this week isn't the week to finally decide to bench him. He deserves at least one more week, especially since both Eddie Lacy and James Starks are likely out.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/17/16 2:21pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (back) did not practice Monday, Oct. 17. The Packers did not practice; Cobb's status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Cobb has put up back-to-back quality outings the last two weeks, totaling 16 catches for 162 yards and a touchdown in those two contests combined. He was targeted 11 times in each of those two games, too, so Cobb is officially back on track. If he's good to go for this Thursday, then view him as a WR2.
James Starks - RBPosted 10/17/16 2:41pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) sat out of practice Monday, Oct. 17. The Packers did not practice; Starks' status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Starks' fantasy value hinges on the availability of Eddie Lacy, but Starks' own health is also not at 100 percent. If Green Bay's running backs are limited this week, then they could look to pass more against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. Keep tabs on the progress of Starks and Lacy over the next couple of days before making any lineup decisions.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/17/16 2:35pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) did not practice Monday, Oct. 17. The Packers did not practice; Lacy's status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Lacy didn't look like he was at full health in Week 6, and he may not have time to get there on a short week against the Chicago Bears. His status will need to be monitored, but he's a low-end RB2 or flex candidate if he is active against a tougher run defense.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/17/16 2:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion) missed practice Monday, Oct. 17. The Packers did not practice; Adams' status is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Adams disappointed in Week 6, and he's clearly the No. 3 wide receiver behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Even if Adams plays, he's too risky of a start in traditional leagues.
James Starks - RBPosted 10/17/16 3:34pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) is expected to miss around four weeks after undergoing knee surgery this past weekend. The Packers is considering Starks week-to-week at this point.
Huddle Up: Eddie Lacy will receive a lot of work while Starks is sidelined, but he is also dealing with an injury. Owners should keep an eye on Lacy's practice participation this week to make sure he will be able to play in Week 7. He should be a starting option in all leagues if he is healthy.
James Starks - RBPosted 10/16/16 10:36am ET
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) underwent knee surgery Sunday, Oct. 16, and will miss several weeks.
Huddle Up: The Packers likely will add another running back in the near future, but Eddie Lacy will receive most of the work at running back until Starks returns. Lacy should be a weekly starter for owners as long as he can stay healthy.
