Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/19/19 12:00am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be asked to run a dramatically different offense than the one he has operated for most of his career, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. 'When you take a guy like Aaron Rodgers, who is a very good football player, I mean, he's kind of one of those guys where you can kind of pretty much do a lot of everything. I think a lot of it is going to carry over. I think some of the language will be different but it's going to be a lot of the same premises for him,' Hackett told PackersNews.com.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is unlikely to be the overall QB1 in drafts this summer following the emergence of Patrick Mahomes, but he'll come off the board shortly thereafter as the QB2 or QB3. It will also be interesting to see how receptive the 35-year-old will be to the schemes of new head coach Matt LaFleur and Hackett, although it's hard to imagine he'll drop off considering how vanilla Mike McCarthy had become with his play-calling in recent years.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 2/6/19 10:51pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb should not be re-signed, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who believes Cobb's size and injury history are reasons the team should move on.
Huddle Up: Cobb is coming off a disappointing, injury-filled season, and the team showed last year with Jordy Nelson that they aren't afraid to move on from a receiver no matter what his relationship is with Aaron Rodgers. Despite his recent struggles, Cobb is sure to have a market and could be worth a late-round roll of the dice in the right situation.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/4/19 10:12am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is expected to be able to fully participate in the team's offseason program and will not require surgery on the left knee that hindered him throughout various points of the 2018 season.
Huddle Up: Rodgers, who also has experienced no setbacks from the concussion he suffered in the regular-season finale, told the NFL Network his body feels "really good," and ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the 35-year-old quarterback will make his annual appearance in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week. The Packers can begin their offseason program on April 1. Rodgers figures to be the second or third quarterback to come off fantasy draft boards this summer.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 2/3/19 5:30pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion, knee) said that he has recovered from the concussion he suffered at the end of the season and has decided not to undergo knee surgery this offseason.
Huddle Up: Rodgers had a down year by his standards, but he still finished with 25 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions. He is no longer the No. 1 fantasy quarterback, but he should still be a reliable QB1 in 2019.
Aaron Jones - RBPosted 2/1/19 9:43am ET
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones led the league with his average of 5.5 rushing yards per attempt during the regular season. 'I've always felt like I've belonged in the conversation as one of the top backs,' Jones said Friday, Feb. 1, in an interview with NFL Network.
Huddle Up: Due to suspension and injury, Jones was limited to 12 games played, but he found his way into the end zone in seven of them and displayed the big-play ability that the Packers need to complement Aaron Rodgers. He's certainly on the high-end RB2 radar for next season.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/29/19 12:11pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham is expected to stay in Green Bay in 2019, according to a source. He is due a $5 million roster bonus by March 15. It was previously reported that the Packers could release Graham to save the money.
Huddle Up: It was a relatively frustrating year for the Packers, and Graham was part of that frustration. After scoring 10 times in 2017, he found the end zone only twice last season. Despite that, he finished as the TE12 in PPR scoring. He can be drafted as a No. 1 fantasy tight end as he looks for a rebound campaign.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 1/24/19 10:01pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham could be released during the offseason, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, a move that would save the team $5.3 million in cap space.
Huddle Up: Graham finished second on the team in both receptions (55) and receiving yards (636), but he was a massive disappointment in the red zone where he accounted for just two touchdowns. If head coach Matt LaFleur believes Graham can rebound in the new offense he could be back, but otherwise the team may overhaul the position entirely.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/30/18 10:40am ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (head) left the Week 17 game early and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Rodgers is able to return to the game. Rodgers posted solid numbers this season and will be working with a new offensive coordinator next season. He should be seen as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all drafts next season.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/30/18 12:27pm ET
Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Week 17 game and has been ruled out.
Huddle Up: Rodgers will have plenty of time to recover from the concussion and should be ready for offseason workouts. He will be working with a new offensive scheme next season but should still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
DeShone Kizer - QBPosted 12/30/18 2:40pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling posted three grabs for a game-best 43 yards on eight targets in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, working most of the game with backup QB DeShone Kizer.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling ended up with 38 catches, 581 yards and two touchdowns, not a bad rookie season. He appears to be a player with a bright future heading into 2019, perhaps competing for the No. 2 job behind Davante Adams. MVS is one to watch for fantasy purposes as a sleeper.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 12/30/18 2:37pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams ran eight times for just four yards in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions while adding three grabs for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Williams was getting a look as the primary back, but the team lost Aaron Rodgers (concussion) early and the offense was disjointed the rest of the afternoon. He could be back in 2019, but as long as Aaron Jones is around Williams is second fiddle.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:49pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb posted just one catch for 27 yards on five targets in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Cobb ended up with just 38 catches, 383 yards and two touchdowns over his nine outings, his lowest yardage total since his rookie year of 2011. His fantasy outlook is rather muddled heading into 2019.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 12/30/18 2:44pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham registered three grabs for 21 yards on five targets in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, finishing with 55 grabs, 636 yards and only two scores.
Huddle Up: The touchdown total tied a career low, matching his two scores in 2015 with the Seattle Seahawks. He was once one of the top fantasy targets at the tight end position, but now he is a borderline low-end TE1 or TE2 heading into 2019.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/28/18 2:52pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 17. The Packers did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has not posted great numbers over the last month but did throw for 442 yards and two touchdowns last week. He should still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 12/28/18 2:48pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee, thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 17. The Packers did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Graham has gone seven straight games without a touchdown and has under 50 yards in six of the last seven games. He could still be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in some league but is no longer a must-start option like he was in the past.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 12/28/18 2:45pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 17. The Packers did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Cobb likely will be active for the game if he is cleared by the doctors. He has had a disappointing 2018 season and probably should only be considered a possible flex option in deeper leagues.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 12/28/18 2:44pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17. The Packers did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Adams probably will be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. He should be a starting option if he plays, but owners will need other options available in case he is ruled out.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 12/27/18 10:10am ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams is not practicing Thursday, Dec. 27. He was working off to the side with trainers.
Huddle Up: Adams has already said he expects to play as he threatens the Packers' single-season receptions mark. He's currently the top PPR fantasy wide receiver this year and can be drafted as such next offseason.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 12/27/18 3:10pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee, thumb) returned to practice Thursday, Dec. 27, getting in a limited session.
Huddle Up: This indicates Graham should be fine for Sunday's season finale, though he hasn't exactly been useful as of late, topping 50 yards only once in his last nine games. He's also scored only once within that span. Even so, given how weak the tight end position is, Graham still checks in as a lower-end TE1.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/27/18 3:08pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (groin, knee) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has been on the injury report literally all season, so it's only appropriate he remains on there for the final week. His status is never in jeopardy and he can be comfortably fired up as a high-end QB1 versus the Lions for Week 17.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 12/27/18 3:07pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Dec. 27, getting in a limited session.
Huddle Up: After having to miss practice Wednesday, this puts Cobb in good shape of being able to play in the season finale. He'll be a solid WR3 with potential for more if teammate Davante Adams (knee) can't suit up against Detroit.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 12/26/18 12:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) was not able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 26, due to a right knee ailment. Adams does expect to be able to play in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Adams needs two catches to break the Packers' single-season record, so he'll be on the field at least for a portion of the season finale. Keep him in your starting lineup if you're still in the fantasy playoffs.
Jimmy Graham - TEPosted 12/26/18 2:09pm ET
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee, thumb) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Graham has been banged up for the second half of the season and he has been a shell of his former self from a fantasy perspective. If you have healthier alternatives for Week 17 you should use them.
Randall Cobb - WRPosted 12/26/18 2:08pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Cobb is a question mark for the regular-season finale, and he might not be rushed to play with the team eliminated from the playoff race. He is a risky fantasy option in Week 17.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/26/18 2:11pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee, groin) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Rodgers wanted to start last week against the Jets even with the team out of the playoff mix, so it's likely he'll be good to go in Week 17 as he tries to finish a dismal season for the team on a rather high note.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 12/26/18 6:57pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) said he expects to play in the Week 17 game even though he missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Adams is able to practice this week. He can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues if he plays.
Aaron Rodgers - QBPosted 12/23/18 6:25pm ET
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 37 of his 55 passes for 442 yards and two touchdowns and rushed five times for 32 yards and two scores in a 44-38 win over the New York Jets in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It hasn't been the best fantasy season for Rodgers, but he rewarded any owner that stuck with him with a monster performance in what is the championship week in most fantasy leagues.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WRPosted 12/23/18 6:23pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught five of his nine targets for 75 yards in a 44-38 win over the New York Jets in Week 16.
Huddle Up: After failing to reach 20 yards in each of the last five games, Valdes-Scantling showed some signs of life. Of course, Green Bay had to throw the ball a ton as the Packers rallied from a big deficit, so you won't want to bank of a repeat performance from him in the finale.
Davante Adams - WRPosted 12/23/18 6:30pm ET
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught 11 of his 18 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in a 44-38 win over the New York Jets in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Adams has been Aaron Rodgers's go-to option all year, and all the targets make him one of the safest fantasy options at the receiver position.
Jamaal Williams - RBPosted 12/23/18 6:28pm ET
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams rushed 15 times for 95 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 61 yards in a 44-38 win over the New York Jets in Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Aaron Jones out for the year, Williams delivered a big game as the featured back. He will be a RB2 candidate in the regular season finale against the Detroit Lions.
