Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/13/18 1:18pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to play in Week 2 of the preseason, although he is less likely to play in the last two preseason games.
Huddle Up: Obviously the Packers aren't going to play Rodgers more than they need to. He's a season removed from a broken collarbone anyway. Continue to draft him as the No. 1 fantasy quarterback.
Jake Kumerow - WRPosted 8/9/18 10:31pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow logged three receptions for 76 yards, including a 52-yard touchdown, against the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: Kumerow has been the star of camp, drawing praise from pretty much everyone involved with the Packers, including Aaron Rodgers. Under the lights for the first time, Kumerow did nothing to dull that enthusiasm, posting a 3-76-1 line that could've been more with better accuracy from Tim Boyle. He's someone to keep an eye on going forward.
J'Mon Moore - WRPosted 8/9/18 10:26pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR J'Mon Moore finished with three receptions for 27 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: Moore didn't do himself any favors tonight, dropping a couple of passes, including a possible touchdown from Tim Boyle. On a night when fellow rookie wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown looked like playmakers, Moore fell flat. He'll need to turn the page before the club's next preseason game.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WRPosted 8/9/18 10:14pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught five passes for a game-high 101 yards and a touchdown during the team's 31-17 win over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Aug. 9. Fellow rookie WR Equanimeous St. Brown was also solid, catching four passes for 61 yards.
Huddle Up: Much has been made of Green Bay's lack of proven depth behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb so there are definitely opportunities to carve out meaningful roles. To that end, Valdes-Scantling put himself on the map, getting over the top for a 51-yard gain and making a nice contested catch in the end zone. It's only one game, but Valdes-Scantling and, to a lesser extent, St. Brown put themselves on the right track for a spot on the 53-man roster. Go ahead and add Valdes-Scantling to your watch list.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 8/7/18 11:40am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is still not participating in practice Tuesday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: Jones has been out for about a week now. The longer he is idle the more concern grows. He's suspended for the first two games of the season, so he does have more time to recover. In the meantime, Jamaal Williams looks like a decent mid-round value pick and deserves more attention than he's receiving after scoring six times and totaling 818 yards as a rookie.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 8/6/18 11:36am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 6.
Huddle Up: Cobb was dealing with an ankle issue over the weekend but appears to be fine. He likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Packers this season and will be looking to improve his 2017 numbers. He can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in most leagues.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 8/5/18 11:54pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) did not take part in the team's Family Night practice on Saturday, Aug. 4, due to soreness in his ankle. Although it's the same ankle he had surgery on during the offseason, Cobb said it's 'not a big' concern.
Huddle Up: Injuries have taken their toll on Cobb over the years, but this doesn't sound like anything of significance. Obviously the team won't push Cobb during the preseason, as he and Davante Adams are the only proven commodities at receiver in Green Bay entering 2018. He's a WR3/WR4 with some potential.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 8/3/18 6:23pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (undisclosed) left practice early Friday, Aug. 3, and went inside with medical personnel. He returned to the field later in practice but did not participate in any drills.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Cobb misses any practice time. He is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but may receive more targets with Jordy Nelson no longer on the team. Cobb has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in leagues.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 8/2/18 12:13pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: Jones hoped to return to practice by this time, but it appears he needs more time to heal from his injury. He is competing for the starting job and should have a solid role even if he does not start. He has a chance to be a No. 3 running back in some leagues.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 8/1/18 8:01am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' contract extension talks have had measurable progress over the past few days, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has struggled throwing to the wrong jerseys early in camp, but it's really nitpicking when you go that deep to find flaws in his game. He remains an elite option at the position but does have some health red flags.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 7/30/18 8:26am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) won't practice Monday, July 30, and there's no timetable for his return from hamstring tightness.
Huddle Up: Jones will miss the first two games, but his versatility gives him the best shot to come out ahead of the committee with Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery. Jones is an RB3 with boom-or-bust potential.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 7/30/18 11:35am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw three interceptions during practice Monday, July 30, and has thrown seven interceptions since training camp began.
Huddle Up: Owners should not worry about Rodgers' early camp struggles and can expect him to continue being one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL. He should be one of the first quarterbacks off the board in all fantasy leagues and will be a weekly starting option.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 7/30/18 12:10pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) said his injured hamstring is feeling good and expects to return to the practice field by Thursday, Aug. 2. He said he could play if the team had a game today.
Huddle Up: Jones is expected to be part of a committee this season, but his role is still uncertain at this point. Owners should monitor the situation during the preseason to see how he will be used on offense. He could be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back depending on his role.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 7/27/18 9:14am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb doesn't appear to have any limitations in training camp so far, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Cobb was spotted wearing a boot on his right foot shortly after minicamp ended earlier this summer.
Huddle Up: Cobb's 16-game pace stats last year with Aaron Rodgers as the starter were 88 catches for 880 yards and six scores on 128 targets, so it's understandable why owners have been quick to target him as a high-upside WR3 in the seventh round or so. On the downside, he hasn't exceeded 10.5 yards per catch in three straight years, scored more than six touchdowns since 2014 or played a full season since 2015, so he comes with a fair amount of risk.
J'Mon Moore - WRPosted 7/27/18 9:06am ET
Green Bay Packers WR J'Mon Moore is already seeing some time with the first team in training camp. He has reportedly impressed coaches with how quickly he has learned multiple receiver spots.
Huddle Up: The third receiver in an Aaron Rodgers-led offense is almost always going to have some kind of value in fantasy, so this is obviously a good sign for the rookie. He is competing with Geronimo Allison and a handful of others to see regular time on the field behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. It's clear from this report owners will need to keep a close eye on him throughout the preseason, as he has WR3 upside should he win the job and steal the role many believe was destined for Allison.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 7/27/18 2:21pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) said he had offseason surgery to remove cartilage in his ankle and believes he can move around a lot better now.
Huddle Up: Cobb appears to be a full participant during training camp and should be ready for the start of the season. He will be looking to improve on his stats last season and should receive a solid amount of targets in 2018. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 7/26/18 3:31pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) participated in practice Thursday, July 26.
Huddle Up: Cobb was a question mark entering training camp but appears to be fine. He has posted less than 650 yards in each of the last two seasons but could see more targets with Jordy Nelson gone. He has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Geronimo Allison - WRPosted 7/24/18 9:24am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison will have to fend off competition from Michael Clark and the three receivers selected in the draft this spring, but he 'looks like the best bet' to open the season as the third receiver behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Huddle Up: The third receiver in an Aaron Rodgers-led offense is always a sneaky good bet for fantasy production and Allison should be no different. He's flashed when he's had the opportunity and obviously has more rapport with Rodgers than most of his competition for the job. Allison is well worth a pick in later rounds who could pay off big if Cobb has trouble staying healthy again.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 7/20/18 2:02pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has not made any meaningful progress in contract extension talks with the Packers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is looking for a new contract but will not hold out of training camp or the regular season. He is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL when healthy and will have some new pass catchers to work with in 2018. He should be an elite No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 7/19/18 5:50am ET
Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is out of his walking boot and expects to be ready for training camp. He said it wasn't known if he would have limitations yet.
Huddle Up: Cobb is in a position to contribute as the second wide out. He can be a serviceable WR3 in fantasy, but he's always an injury risk.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 7/19/18 9:59pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham will likely split out wide as a receiver much more often than in-line as a traditional tight end this season, according to USA Today Network Wisconsin's Aaron Nagler.
Huddle Up: While much has been made of who will be the WR3 behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, the reality is Graham will likely fill that role quite often with Marcedes Lewis in the more traditional role. It figures to be much closer to what he did in New Orleans than in Seattle, which could bode well for his statistical outlook in 2018. Consider Graham a midrange TE1 with top-five upside.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 7/18/18 3:54pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) confirmed Wednesday, July 18, that he'll be able to take part in training camp -- this despite being spotted in a 'boot cast' in June. However, Cobb said he is not sure if there will be any restrictions until he talks to the training staff.
Huddle Up: Cobb is years separated from his prime but he still has value to offer fantasy owners as long as Aaron Rodgers is the one throwing him the football. Even with Rodgers missing more than half the season last year, Cobb managed to put up serviceable numbers in 2017, logging 66 catches for 653 yards and four scores in 15 games. He can be targeted as a fine WR3 option.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 7/17/18 9:48pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones will end up as the team's starting running back this season in the opinion of USA Today Network Wisconsin's Stu Courtney.
Huddle Up: Courtney cites Jones' talent, favorably comparing his stats to those of Minnesota's Dalvin Cook, and the endorsement of Aaron Rodgers as the reasons that Jones will eventually become Green Bay's RB1. Between his two-game suspension and durability concerns dating back to UTEP, however, Jones still carries plenty of downside. Consider him a mid-round stash candidate.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 7/16/18 8:15am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, 34, said he wants to play until he's 40. 'I'd love to play to 40,' Rodgers said. 'I just think that number means a lot. Obviously, Tom (Brady) is kind of rewriting the book. Brett (Favre) had a good season when he turned 40. My goal is be able to move like I do or close to how I do and still be able to do that at 40 ? just because nobody's been able to do that and still move around the same. Steve Young's career was cut short in his late 30s. John (Elway,) the same - he didn't really move the same as when he was younger. So to be able to move the same way at 38, 39, 40 would be cool. That's my aim.'
Huddle Up: Rodgers still has some durability concerns, but adding Jimmy Graham for the red zone should help his fantasy stock. He's one of the top options at the quarterback position in fantasy.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 7/3/18 1:07pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones has been suspended for the first two games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
Huddle Up: Jones was considered by many to be the best running back among Green Bay's backfield triumvirate. He still can be, but Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery have gained a little more value with Jones out two games. All three of them are now mid-round options.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 6/30/18 10:28am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is having discussions about a long-term extension that is expected to give him the largest per-year contract in NFL history. Team president Mark Murphy said he hopes to have the deal done soon. Murphy also said Rodgers (collarbone) is healthy.
Huddle Up: Rodgers still has a lot to offer at his age, but he has been spotty with his health at times. He remains one of the top options at the position in fantasy.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 6/27/18 11:32pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones needs to improve his work in pass protection to see more time on the field, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Aaron Nagler, who says Jones is lagging behind RB Jamaal Williams in that department.
Huddle Up: There's no doubt that keeping Aaron Rodgers healthy is the top priority in Green Bay, so Jones' shortcomings in that area could absolutely impact his fantasy value. While everyone is expecting a committee, it figures to be a fluid situation and one that should be monitored throughout the preseason.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 6/25/18 7:28am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) could miss the start of training camp due to a right ankle injury, according to sources. He is in a walking boot but didn't say whether he had surgery.
Huddle Up: Cobb had rekindled value entering the year as the No. 2 receiver, and he could be a WR3 option in fantasy. The injury situation is one to monitor in camp.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 6/25/18 10:18am ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) should be ready for the start of the regular season even though he could miss the start of training camp because of an ankle injury, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Cobb should have a solid role in the passing game this season with Jordy Nelson gone. He can be a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues but could have more value in point-per-reception leagues.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 6/18/18 10:25am ET
Green Bay Packers RBs Ty Montgomery, Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones will be part of a committee at running back this upcoming season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said the team will be able to adjust if one of the running backs shows they can be the full-time starter.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the preseason to see how each running back is used. Montgomery probably is the best receiver out of the three, but Williams and Jones are also decent receivers. All three will have value in fantasy leagues but none will be more than No. 3 running backs unless one takes over the starting job.
