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.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 6/11/18 1:06pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery seems to be set for a big role in 2018, according to ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky. Head coach Mike McCarthy said the offense is suited for Montgomery's skill set and the Packers need to take advantage of that. Nevertheless, McCarthy admitted that he will continue to take a committee approach with the backfield with RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams included.
Huddle Up: Green Bay's backfield will be one of the tougher backfields to figure out this offseason. Each of the three running backs flashed at different points in 2017. They can all bring something to the table, but Jones appears to have the most upside. Either way, none of them should be drafted as higher than an RB2.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 6/4/18 10:47am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) is participating in organized team activities Monday, June 4. He missed the first two weeks of workouts because of a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Adams will be the top option in the team's passing game this season and should be one of the better receivers in the NFL. He likely will be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues and likely will be selected in one of the first few rounds.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 5/22/18 11:32am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like it will take long for Adams to get back to 100%, assuming no setbacks. He's a legitimate WR1 candidate.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 5/3/18 9:25am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are expected to agree on a new deal soon, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: It sounds like both sides will be happy. The Packers won't have their franchise quarterback threatening to hold out and Rodgers will have a new contract and will be able to focus on football. When healthyl, an argument can be made that he's the No. 1 fantasy quarterback, even without Jordy Nelson.
J'Mon Moore - WRPosted 4/28/18 10:42am ET
The Green Bay Packers selected Missouri WR J'Mon Moore with the 133rd overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Moore probably will be a No. 4 receiver for the Packers and could be a red zone target as a rookie. He probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Equanimeous St. Brown - WRPosted 4/28/18 2:07pm ET
The Green Bay Packers selected Notre Dame WR Equanimeous St. Brown with the 207th overall pick (Round 6) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: St. Brown led the Irish with 58 receptions, 961 yards and nine touchdowns in 2016 with QB DeShone Kizer, who is now in Green Bay, too. The passing game in South Bend was poor in 2017 under Brandon Wimbush, so his receiving numbers decreased through no fault of his own. He has a chance to be a starter down the road.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 4/17/18 6:21am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 'frustrated and emotional' about being completely cut out of discussions that resulted in departures of WR Jordy Nelson and quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt, according to sources. It is a factor in his thought process when it comes to his contract extension.
Huddle Up: Rodgers just turned 34, and he looked great before the collarbone injury derailed him last year. He should be one of the top quarterback options again this season, and the chip on his shoulder could be beneficial to fantasy owners.
Ty Montgomery - RBPosted 4/12/18 6:30am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery is bigger and stronger, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Montgomery said he's focused on staying healthy this season.
Huddle Up: Montgomery is in a make-it-or-break-it year, and he'll have to share the load with Aaron Jones. He'll have some RB5 luster, and if he stays healthy, he could provide bang for that buck.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/15/18 8:47am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) is being sought to sign by the Oakland Raiders after a positive visit. The team would release WR Michael Crabtree if a deal is done.
Huddle Up: Nelson doesn't have the WR1 clout anymore, but he can be a good WR2 in PPR formats.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/15/18 11:20am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) is not a done deal for the Oakland Raiders. The New Orleans Saints are pushing hard for Nelson and the Seattle Seahawks also remain interested.
Huddle Up: Nelson is now one of the most popular names in free agency and is obviously in high demand. He has a lost a step or two with injury and age, but his size and speed make him a valuable asset in any offense. He'll be a solid fit in any of those offenses and can be drafted as a WR3 if he's healthy.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/15/18 1:08pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Thursday, March 15, worth $15 million. The deal includes $13 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Nelson should be one of the starting receivers for the Raiders in 2018 after they released Michael Crabtree. He is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but should still be a reliable fantasy receiver. Owners in most leagues should consider Nelson as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/14/18 9:27am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.
Huddle Up: He's a very good WR2 to target in his age-33 season.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/14/18 9:19am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.
Huddle Up: He'll be 33 this season and no longer has the WR1 clout, but he can be a very good WR2 in fantasy.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/13/18 1:29pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson was released Tuesday, March 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Nelson is coming off a disappointing 2017 season when he posted only 482 receiving yards but did have six touchdowns. Nelson appears to be slowing down at bit but should receive interest from multiple teams this offseason. He could be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues depending on his new team.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/13/18 3:02pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) plans to continue his playing career after being released by the Green Bay Packers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Nelson may not be a No. 1 receiver at this point but should receive interest from teams during free agency. He has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his new role.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/13/18 6:52pm ET
Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Packers) will visit the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday, March 14, a source said.
Huddle Up: The Raiders already have Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, but Nelson would be a nice complementary receiver. He is no longer a No. 1 receiver at this juncture of his career, but he still could be a useful player. If he were to join Oakland, they would have quite the potent passing offense.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 3/3/18 6:25pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' contract extension is unlikely to be completed until after Washington Redskins impending free-agent Kirk Cousins signs his new deal, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has no reason to rush his extension, so waiting to see where Cousins sets the market makes sense. Rodgers isn't going anywhere, and his status as a top-tier QB1 is unlikely to change any time soon.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 3/1/18 10:54pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion) is feeling 'fine' and there is 'no long-term concern,' according to his agent Frank Bauer, after he sustained two concussions during the 2017 season, including one in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers. Bauer added that Adams has been cleared by 'multiple neurologists' and that he 'could have played in at least one of the final two regular-season games.'
Huddle Up: Despite missing the last two games of the year, Adams tied for second in the NFL with 10 touchdowns receptions, and he also led the team in receptions (74) and yards (885). He's had two nice seasons in a row, and with Aaron Rodgers expected to be 100 percent healthy at the start of next season, there's a solid chance the four-year veteran continues his impressive play.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 3/1/18 11:17pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones pleaded no contest Wednesday, Feb. 28, to one of three charges filed against him stemming from an incident in which he was pulled over for speeding and admitted to having smoked marijuana. The judge accepted his plea to a traffic citation for driving with a controlled substance in his system, while dismissing tickets for speeding and operating without a license. Jones was fined $1,047, had his license suspended for six months and was ordered to undergo an alcohol assessment.
Huddle Up: The takeaway from this is that Jones will most likely face some sort of disciplinary action from the NFL under its substance-abuse policy. It would be unfortunate if this ultimately costs him playing time, too, as Jones enjoyed a fine rookie campaign for a fifth-round draft pick, finishing second on the club in carries and yards, and he also tied for the team lead in rushing touchdowns. He also averaged 5.5 yards per carry, so there is potential for the 23-year-old.
