Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 11/30/15 2:24pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) has not made much progress in his rehab from an ankle injury, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: With Montgomery still injured and Davante Adams struggling, Jeff Janis could start seeing more snaps on offense. The Packers need to get more consistency out of their receivers going forward.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 11/27/15 12:17am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (arm) returned against the Chicago Bears in Week 12 after having his arm examined by trainers.
Huddle Up: Rodgers' appeared to take a helmet to his left elbow, but didn't miss a play and returned to finish out the game. That was about the only good news as Rodgers completed only 22-of-43 passes for 202 yards, a TD and an interception in a 17-13 upset loss -- the Packers' second straight NFC North defeat at Lambeau.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 11/27/15 7:00pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 15-for-35 (42.9 percent) for 129 yards, no touchdowns and one interception on throws to WR Davante Adams the last three weeks. Rodgers is 58-for-103 (56 percent) for 618 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions to everyone else.
Huddle Up: Rodgers and some of his wideouts, particularly Adams, still appear to be on different wavelengths at times and it was definitely an issue Thanksgiving night as Adams and fellow WR James Jones were targeted a combined 17 times but netted only two receptions (both by Adams) for 14 yards.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 11/24/15 9:59am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy and RB James Starks will remain involved in the offense, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Lacy rushed for 100 yards on 22 carries, which was his first 100-yard game of the season. 'I thought Eddie played well,' McCarthy said. 'He was given more opportunities. He was decisive and ran behind his pads.'
Huddle Up: When the Green Bay running game--and Lacy in particular--is going well, it opens up the field for Aaron Rodgers. And with an open field Rodgers can carve up opposing defenses. So if Lacy is healthy and motivated--pushed by Starks, perhaps?--the entire Packers offense perks up. And most importantly for those who spent a high fantasy pick on Lacy, he gets his.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 11/24/15 5:35pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 24, for the second straight day.
Huddle Up: Adams doesn't seem to be any real danger of missing Thursday's Week 12 game against the Bears, and he will be trying to bounce back from a disappointing 3-36 showing in Week 11 after catching 17 passes for 173 yards over the previous two contests.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 11/22/15 9:45pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy had 22 carries for a season-high 100 yards and one catch for six yards in a 30-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Lacy had his first 100-yard game of the season against Minnesota. It would be a huge boost for Lacy owners if he can turn it on over the final month of the season. Lacy gets the Bears next on Thanksgiving night.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 11/20/15 4:05pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) said he'll be playing in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings after missing last week's game. 'I felt good today. My coach said I was moving good, I was looking good,' Lacy said. 'It's a step in the right direction.' However, head coach Mike McCarthy already said earlier this week that RB James Starks would start the game against the Minnesota Vikings, with Lacy spelling him.
Huddle Up: Yeah, Lacy will be in uniform Sunday, but he best belongs seated on fantasy benches until we some signs of improvement and higher usage as he's had no more than 12 touches or 47 total yards in any game since Week 5 with Starks shouldering the load.
James Jones - WRPosted 11/20/15 5:20pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR James Jones (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is listed as probable for the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers did not practice Friday, so his practice designation is an estimate.
Huddle Up: Jones will play as he has all season, but health isn't the real issue here as he's had no more than six targets or two receptions in each of his last five games, including his no-catch outing on two targets last Sunday. Start him only if you're desperate.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 11/19/15 6:30pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) visited the trainer Thursday, Nov. 19, and left practice.
Huddle Up: Going from a full to a limited practice doesn't exactly sound like a player who's progressing toward playing for the first time in more than a month. See if Friday brings any better news.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 11/18/15 4:07pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks will start Sunday, Nov. 22, with RB Eddie Lacy 'going second,' according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Lacy was scheduled to participate in practice Wednesday after sitting out the Week 10 loss to the Lions, but it sounds like Starks is in line for more touches Sunday for the fourth time in five games.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 11/17/15 11:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has completed only 48.8 percent of his passes to his wide receivers during the team's three-game losing streak. Before the streak, he was completing 70 percent of his passes in Green Bay's 6-0 start.
Huddle Up: The good news is the Packers' tight ends have stepped up to help fill the void, and Rodgers has bounced back from the Week 8 77-yard, no-TD debacle in Denver with 369- and 332-yard efforts with six total TD passes.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 11/12/15 3:04pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has fumbled in three straight games and is averaging just 2.36 yards per carry in the last month while ranking 38th in the league in rushing yards on the year with 308. Lacy is at a loss for why he has regressed this year, and he said his ankle is fine. Lacy also said his weight has not been a factor in his decreased productivity. 'I honestly don't know what it is,' Lacy said. 'Definitely, I'm off to a different start. I'm not playing how I was the previous two years. Later on in the season, maybe it'll pick back up. But as of right now, this is just the move that is going to be.' Lacy is now the team's No. 2 running back behind James Starks.
Huddle Up: This has become much more than a slow start, and for the time being, all Lacy owners can do is keep him benched until he shows some signs of life or see if anyone else in your league is willing to bite on a trade.
James Starks - RBPosted 11/11/15 1:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks was named the lead running back over RB Eddie Lacy (groin), according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'I would say James Starks is our No. 1 back right now,' McCarthy said.
Huddle Up: McCarthy has vocalized what the film and stat sheet has revealed of late as Starks has outgained Lacy in terms of total yards in three of the last four games, and the onus looks to be squarely on Lacy now to perform better and earn the job back.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 11/9/15 5:39pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (groin) suffered a pulled groin Sunday, Nov. 8, against the Carolina Panthers, but may still be able to play in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Lacy will have to split carries with James Starks if he's active this week. One of fantasy football's biggest disappointments this season, Lacy is no longer a lock to be in owner's lineups every week.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 11/2/15 9:22am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 14 of his 22 pass attempts for just 77 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Denver Broncos. He ran twice for 31 yards.
Huddle Up: Considering that Rodgers has historically been ordinary on the road, and the Broncos sport the top pass defense in the league, his struggles in Denver were hardly a surprise.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/30/15 5:26pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 30, and is probable for Week 8 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: It looks like Adams will play for the first time since his ankle injury early in Week 3 and could draw some solid looks with the Packers' top two WRs likely to draw the Broncos' top two CBs in Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. Fellow WR Ty Montgomery is listed as questionable but seems unlikely to play after missing practice all week.
James Starks - RBPosted 10/30/15 5:26pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR RB James Starks (hip) and Ty Montgomery (ankle) are listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Denver Broncos. Montgomery did not practice all week, and Starks was limited the last two days in practice.
Huddle Up: It was a good news to see Starks get in limited work the last two days after sitting out Wednesday, but in a change-up from Week 6, look for Eddie Lacy to get the majority of the touches Sunday night in Denver. Montgomery, meanwhile, seems unlikely to play, but that would be counter-balanced by the expected return of fellow wideout Davante Adams.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/29/15 11:55pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy said his weight isn't an issue despite unflattering photos of him at practice. He's listed at 234 pounds by the team, which is three pounds heavier than he was at the NFL Scouting Combine in 2013, and head coach Mike McCarthy said this week that Lacy is 'bigger than he was as a rookie' but doesn't think his weight is a problem, either. Lacy says that his recently injured ankle didn't affect his ability to stay in shape. He noticed his running posture has changed this year while watching bye week film, so Lacy has been focusing on getting his pads lower during practice this week.
Huddle Up: Perhaps the extra week to get healthier and the bye-week adjustments will do the trick for Lacy as his fantasy owners are hoping for a repeat of his 2014 second-half rebound.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/28/15 6:17pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) has looked good during his individual workouts this week, and head coach Mike McCarthy doesn't think Lacy's injury is affecting him anymore.
Huddle Up: The bye week might have come at just the right time for Lacy and his fantasy owners, who are hoping for a big second-half by the RB to mirror last season's finish.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/27/15 3:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) has 11.7 yards per catch this year, which is down from 14.1 last year, and he's been dealing with a shoulder injury that might be affecting him more than he'd like to admit.
Huddle Up: Cobb only has nine catches for 105 yards and no TDs over his last three games and has taken a backseat to James Jones when it comes to G.B. WR production. Perhaps, though, the bye week will prove to be just what he needed and he'll re-establish himself as Aaron Rodgers' top target coming out of the break.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/26/15 8:00pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) should be able to play in the Week 8 game against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. He practiced on a limited basis Monday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Adams has essentially missed the last four games and his return will be a welcome addition to a banged-up WR corps that might be without rookie Ty Montgomery, who is dealing with his own ankle issue.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/20/15 4:10pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy and RB James Starks are likely to continue sharing work as head coach Mike McCarthy wants to establish a 'one-two punch' in the backfield. 'At this point, I'm not really interested in running one of my running backs 20-25 times in a game,' McCarthy said. 'I don't think that's the best thing for us. Right now, it's not the best thing for them. The running back position is an extremely punishing position that can take a lot of hits. I think you have to be conscientious of that, and Eddie has a bruising running style.'
Huddle Up: Yikes, not good news for Lacy owners as it sounds like Starks' strong play and Lacy's struggles of late have transformed this into a full-blown time-share. Lacy is still the back you want, but his owners' fantasy expectations are going to have to be adjusted.
Eddie Lacy - RBPosted 10/19/15 10:16am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) had just four carries in the Week 6 game while RB James Starks had 10 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown. 'We're a one-two punch team,' coach Mike McCarthy said. 'It's really no different than the way we operate. We went with James first just because he's been playing extremely well, and Eddie has been a little banged up.' Though McCarthy did not expand on what exactly is bothering Lacy, it's possible the right ankle is more problematic than the team has let on. the ankle appeared to be progressing well as recently as this week, when Lacy practiced with a normal tape job for the first time. Gone was the bulky, over-the-shoe taping known as 'spatting,' which he wore the last three games and provides extra support for the ankle.
Huddle Up: Lacy's punch has been mostly missing from the Green Bay attack this season. At this point fantasy owners have to hope his struggles are ankle related, and that he'll return from the bye rested and ready to live up to draft expectations the second half of the season.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/19/15 10:16am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) was rested in Week 6 against the San Diego Chargers and he will have the bye week to recover and get back to practice.
Huddle Up: Adams hasn't quite lived up to expectations since stepping into the regular receiver rotation on the heels of Jordy Nelson's injury, and his own health concerns may have something to do with that. He'll get a week off before resuming his battle with the likes of Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis for auxiliary looks in the Green Bay passing game.
Ty Montgomery - WRPosted 10/18/15 9:58pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) left the Week 6 game against the San Diego Chargers due to a left ankle injury. X-rays taken after the game were negative, a source said Sunday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: Montgomery was replaced by Jeff Janis who made two big catches. Devante Adams is expected back soon, so Montgomery's fantasy value will go down even if he doesn't miss any time.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/17/15 1:22pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is expected to participate in practice Saturday, Oct. 17, and said his ankle is feeling better but is not ready to say if he will play in Week 6 against the San Diego Chargers. He is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Adams said from the start that he won't play until he's 100 percent. Adams is trending in the right direction but there's a good chance he'll sit out one more week. Ty Montgomery will continue to be the Packers' No. 3 receiver if Adams is out.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/16/15 6:53pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) was limited in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 16, and is questionable for Week 6 against the San Diego Chargers.
Huddle Up: Adams definitely is getting close to a return, but with the Packers having a bye next week, look for Adams to sit out a fourth straight game and get the added benefit of two more weeks to heal.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 10/10/15 3:08pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) has been downgraded to doubtful for the Week 5 game against the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Adams isn't going to play this week. Ty Montgomery will continue to be the No. 3 receiver with Adams out. He doesn't have much fantasy appeal against a tough Rams' pass defense.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/9/15 6:16pm ET
Green Bay Packers WRs Randall Cobb (shoulder) and James Jones (hamstring) were both limited in practice Friday, Oct. 9, but both are listed as probable for Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams.
Huddle Up: Cobb and Jones will play after a relatively quiet Week 4 in which they combined for 10 catches and 142 yards, but fellow wideout Davante Adams likely remains out despite his questionable designation.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 10/8/15 7:05pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: It was the second straight day of limited work for Cobb, but as of now, there are no real concerns that he's in any danger of missing -- or be noticeably compromised in -- Sunday's game against the Rams.
