Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 9/19/17 5:16am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) is '50-50' to play in Week 3, according to a source, but his quadriceps strain isn't considered serious.
Huddle Up: The Packers face the 0-2 Cincinnati Bengals this week, and if Nelson goes, he could be on a snap count. Randall Cobb (shoulder), who was also nicked up, is day to day. Nelson would be a WR2 candidate if he suits up. Cobb could graduate to WR2 status if he were to play and Nelson didn't.
Martellus Bennett - TEPosted 9/19/17 7:33pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett finished with five catches for 47 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons but committed four drops - a problem offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett believes is rooted in fundamentals. 'It really just always goes back to being fundamentally sound, trusting his training. He has really good hands. We just have to be fundamentally sound in those situations, not allowing the ball to cross your eyes, things like that, extending for the football,' Bennett told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Huddle Up: The good news is only two tight ends - Jason Witten (22) and Zach Ertz (18) - have been targeted more often than Bennett (17). The bad news is Bennett only has eight catches for 90 yards so far. While it is troubling Bennett would be struggling with fundamentals in his age-30 season, his track record is far too good to believe he won't eventually get things figured out. Owners should stick it out with him and buy low on him if possible.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/18/17 9:14am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 18, on the shoulder injury that knocked him out of the Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: Cobb played through a shoulder injury two years ago and didn't do so very affectively. The Pack are already missing two of their best offensive linemen and lost Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) in Week 2. If Cobb can go and Nelson can't, he'd be in the low-end WR2/high-end WR3 realm. Stay tuned for updates.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/18/17 1:45pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb's (shoulder) MRI revealed no significant damage to his injured shoulder. He is considered day-to-day, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Packers and Cobb owners can breathe a sigh of relief. Cobb has played like his old self after a disappointing 2016 campaign in which he was hampered by injury. The shifty receiver is an every-week starter in PPR leagues as long as he's healthy. He can be started at least as a flex in standard formats.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 9/17/17 6:06pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) left the Week 2 game at Atlanta in the first quarter due to a quadriceps injury and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: If Nelson is unable to return it would be Davante Adams ascending to the No. 1 receiver job.
Martellus Bennett - TEPosted 9/17/17 9:58pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett posted five receptions for 47 yards on a game-high 11 targets in Week 2 at Atlanta.
Huddle Up: Aaron Rodgers looked to Bennett early and often, but especially once Jordy Nelson went down in the first half with a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time it is good news for the fantasy appeal of Bennett going into Week 3 against Cincinnati.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/17/17 9:57pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb posted six receptions for 60 yards on nine targets in Week 2 at Atlanta and he ran once for 10 yards.
Huddle Up: Cobb did a good job in the second half, as everyone moved up and had more responsibilities once Jordy Nelson left the game early due to a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time Cobb could see six to eight targets in Week 3 against the Bengals to make him a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 9/17/17 9:57pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams hauled in eight receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 at Atlanta and he was targeted 10 times.
Huddle Up: Adams stepped up and filled the void left by Jordy Nelson, who checked out early in the first half due to a quadriceps injury. If Nelson is forced to miss time then Adams will be the top banana in Green Bay's pass attack and that's always good for fantasy value. The Packers host the Bengals in Week 3.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 9/17/17 9:56pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery rushed 10 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 at Atlanta and he added six receptions for 75 yards and a score on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Montgomery was one of the more reliable receivers for Aaron Rodgers once Jordy Nelson left the game due to a quadriceps injury. It was a great night for fantasy owners of Montgomery across the board. He'll look to carry the momentum into Week 3 against Cincinnati at Lambeau Field.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 9/17/17 9:55pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33 of his 50 pass attempts for 343 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 2 at Atlanta.
Huddle Up: Rodgers was playing with a patchwork offensive line due to several injuries but he still had a decent overall stat line. He'll look to keep up the big fantasy production in Week 3 against Cincinnati.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 9/16/17 6:36am ET
Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett was fined $9,115 by the National Football League for his unnecessary roughness penalty in Week 1's game against the Seattle Seahawks. He gave LB K.J. Wright a two-handed shove after Wright tackled QB Aaron Rodgers on a fourth-quarter scramble for a first down.
Huddle Up: Bennett finished his first game in a Packer uniform with three receptions for 43 yards. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 in the majority of fantasy formats.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 9/10/17 8:55pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught seven passes on eight targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in a 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Even against a tough Seattle secondary, Nelson was able to deliver a solid stat line. Plug him in as a WR1 against Atlanta in Week 2.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 9/10/17 8:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery carried 19 times for 54 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 39 yards in a 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Although Montgomery didn't have any explosive runs, he did dominate the backfield touches. He should be a safe RB2 play against Atlanta in Week 2.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 9/10/17 9:05pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught four of his seven targets for 47 yards in a 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Adams was the No. 3 option behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb in this one, and with Cobb looking like his old self, Adams could have trouble approaching his 2016 numbers. He is a WR3 candidate against Atlanta in Week 2.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 9/10/17 8:59pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb led the team in receptions, targets and receiving yards in a 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, catching nine of his 13 targets for 85 yards.
Huddle Up: Cobb blamed his disappointing 2016 season on nagging injuries, and if Sunday was any indication, he could be back in top form. Consider him a WR3 with upside heading into a Week 2 matchup against Atlanta.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 8/26/17 12:16pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson said he is looking to play two to four more years before he decides to retire. Nelson has two years left on his current contract and said he would see how he feels at the end of that contact.
Huddle Up: Nelson has dealt with injuries during his career but is ready to be the No. 1 receiver for the Packers this season. He has recorded at least 1,250 yards in each of his last three seasons and has 27 touchdowns over his last two seasons. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver in all leagues.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 8/24/17 10:40am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (leg) is expected to play this week versus the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.
Huddle Up: Don't expect Montgomery to play much so as to not aggravate whatever leg injury he had. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he remains an RB2 candidate with increased appeal in PPR leagues.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/23/17 8:28am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he took the most time off of his career this offseason to rest his arm. 'I worked hard in the offseason on my body and my core strength,' Rodgers said. 'I took a break from throwing for about a month. I kind of let my arm come all the way back. It's felt good this year, as usual. But my legs, I think, have felt better the last couple years than maybe the previous couple years, probably due to the training and maybe eating better. I think when your legs are underneath you and you're throwing from the ground up, you're probably going to be a little more accurate.'
Huddle Up: Rodgers is now 33, but his fantasy value lies in his sheer dominance through the air. He ran for a career-high 369 yards last season, which really doesn't add a whole lot to his fantasy prowess. Look for him as a top three or four option at the position.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 8/22/17 2:56pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (leg) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 22, after being sidelined last week with a lower leg injury.
Huddle Up: Montgomery will start the season as somewhat of an underrated PPR running back. He'll be the starting running back for one of the highest scoring teams in the NFL and essentially caught 44 passes in 11 games last season. Consider TyMont a high-end PPR RB2.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/19/17 6:31pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed six of his eight pass attempts for 37 yards and a touchdown and ran twice for 15 yards against the Washington Redskins in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: You never want to reach for a quarterback in your fantasy drafts, but Rodgers should be the first one off the board, sometime in the first three rounds.
Martellus Bennett - TEPosted 8/19/17 6:48pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett caught one pass, a three-yard touchdown, against the Washington Redskins in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: This could be the first of many red zone scores for Bennett. He will benefit from working with Aaron Rodgers, and he can be drafted as a TE1.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 8/16/17 6:33pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (leg) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 16.
Huddle Up: Montgomery could be held out of the second preseason game because of his injury but has a few weeks to prepare for the regular season. He will be the starting running back for the Packers this season and will continue to be used in the passing game. He will be a solid No. 2 running back in all leagues.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 8/15/17 3:16pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery (leg) missed practice Tuesday, Aug. 15, due to a soft tissue injury on his lower leg. Montgomery added that the ailment is nothing to worry about.
Huddle Up: Montgomery is a polarizing figure in the fantasy community this year. If he can hold onto the starting job in the backfield and stay healthy, he has low-end RB1 upside in PPR formats. In any case, Jamaal Williams is a recommended handcuff.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 8/5/17 6:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones worked with the second-team offense Friday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Jones could still be worth a flier in keeper formats, but Jamaal Williams looks like the back to own behind Ty Montgomery for now.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 8/5/17 6:23pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams shared snaps with RB Ty Montgomery with the first-team offense Saturday, Aug. 5.
Huddle Up: Montgomery figures to be the lead back, but Williams could provide the thunder to Montgomery's lightning and potentially see some carries around the goal line. Consider him a RB4 candidate.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 8/2/17 12:06pm ET
Green Bay Packers rookie RB Jamaal Williams is the most likely of the rookie running backs on the team to push Ty Montgomery for the starting job, according to offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett, who added Williams has earned work with the first team due to his ability to pass protect.
Huddle Up: Pass protection is perhaps Montgomery's biggest weakness, so this is something to keep an eye on moving forward. The most likely scenario for Green Bay this year is Montgomery serving as the lead back and pushing 200 touches, while Williams could serve as the change-of-pace and possibly handle goal-line work. It is still very much a fluid situation, albeit one ripe with plenty of fantasy upside.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 7/31/17 12:29pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery is the 'full package,' according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy admitted that Montgomery needs more repetitions in pass protection, but his running ability, pass-catching and route-running are on point. 'That guy's a stud now. He's got it in his body. He's a very good young player,' McCarthy added.
Huddle Up: McCarthy is right; Montgomery can do anything and everything for the Packers on offense. He's one of the most versatile weapons in the league and has bulked up to be able to take the contact. View him as a RB2 with added value in PPR leagues.
Martellus Bennett - TEPosted 7/28/17 8:13am ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett (ankle) had his left ankle taped and returned to practice Friday, July 28.
Huddle Up: Breathe a sigh of relief. As previously mentioned, Bennett is a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy circles.
Martellus Bennett - TEPosted 7/28/17 8:07am ET
Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett (leg) suffered an apparent leg injury after a non-contact fall in practice Friday, July 28. Bennett required assistance to stand, limping away as he grabbed his left leg.
Huddle Up: Keep a close eye on this one. Non-contact injuries have a storied history of taking out players for extended time. Bennett is a tough guy and hopefully escaped without serious injury. He is a fringe TE1 as a matchup play if this turns out to be nothing.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 7/28/17 8:11pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he is going to do everything he can to stay healthy this year.
Huddle Up: Cobb battled injuries throughout last season, but a big playoff run was a reminder of what he can do when healthy. Grab him as an upside WR3.
