  Jaguars | Jags hire Keenan McCardell as WR coach    Fri Jan 20, 06:12 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired former Washington Redskins assistant coach Keenan McCardell as their new wide receivers coach.

Footballguys view: McCardell played for the Jaguars from 1996-2001, and now he's going to be coaching there. He has been a WR coach with Washington and the University of Maryland. Guys like Stefon Diggs, DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder have benefited from his coaching.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins undergoes surgery    Fri Jan 20, 06:01 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) underwent a second surgery on his injured foot last week.

Footballguys view: In 2016, Watkins had to deal with this foot injury and play through some discomfort. Originally it was thought that no surgery and only rest would be needed after his first surgery. Now, Watkins is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

  Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell listed as questionable    Fri Jan 20, 05:46 PM

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: If Mitchell plays, it's a boost for the Patriots passing attack. The rookie may only have a limited role, but he could be in for high-value targets against the Steelers.

  Packers | Questionable tag for Jordy Nelson    Fri Jan 20, 04:55 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Nelson has to be on the doubtful side of questionable. He may want to play, but a ribs injury is incredibly painful and he wouldn't be himself. We'd be shocked if Nelson plays against the Falcons on Sunday.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison misses practice    Fri Jan 20, 04:49 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: The undrafted rookie would be in for a larger role if WR Jordy Nelson doesn't play....but he may not play due to this hamstring injury. That would leave Jeff Janis with a spot behind Davante Adamds and Randall Cobb if both Nelson and Allison are out on Sunday.

  Packers | Davante Adams listed as questionable    Fri Jan 20, 04:25 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: The Packers need him to play if at all possible. Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are both questionable to play against the Falcons on Sunday.

  Falcons | Taylor Gabriel not on injury report    Fri Jan 20, 04:14 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Falcons here. Gabriel may only get a small handful of looks, but he should get high-value targets against the Packers on Sunday.

  Falcons | Julio Jones listed as limited    Fri Jan 20, 04:12 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) was officially limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, but is not listed on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are giving Jones a bit of rest, but he's good to go for the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. He could have a big game against the Packers as Matt Ryan's favorite target.

  Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell trending towards playing    Fri Jan 20, 04:02 PM

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is 'trending in the right direction' regarding his status for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Mitchell may be in for a few high-value targets against the Steelers. He may not be a big part of the gameplan, but we guarantee Patriots OC Josh McDaniels will find ways to get the rookie WR into mismatches.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) did more in practice Thursday, Jan. 19, than the team anticipated, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

  Falcons | Taylor Gabriel still limited    Thu Jan 19, 05:05 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: We're not worried about him and feel he will be a good producer this weekend with the attention given to Julio Jones by the Packers secondary - which isn't a tremendous unit to begin with.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison may sit a few days    Thu Jan 19, 01:51 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) may not practice until Saturday, Jan. 21, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: Allison saw his role reduced when Randall Cobb came back, but if Jordy Nelson or Davante Adams are limited by their injuries, he could find himself targeted a bunch. He's a high-risk play this weekend.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson to work with rehab group    Thu Jan 19, 01:38 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) will be on the field with the rehab group during practice Thursday, Jan. 19, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: That's a good step. Nelson will likely play, though head coach Mike McCarthy said under regular season conditions, the receiver wouldn't likely be active. We're cautiously optimistic about him playing, but keeping a lower than normal ceiling on his expected production.

  Falcons | Julio Jones to sit again    Thu Jan 19, 01:17 PM

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) will not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 19, but said he will be ready for the NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: They are just resting him. The Packers secondary is vulnerable, though they will pay extra attention to Jones. We expect Jones to be one of the better options in fantasy this weekend, though, as Matt Ryan will definitely target him a lot.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison set to play    Thu Jan 19, 10:35 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 22.

Footballguys view: Allison is another guy head coach Mike McCarthy said wouldn't play if this were a regular season game. His role was reduced with the return of Randall Cobb, but Allison has shown flashes of production. If he plays but Nelson or Adams are out, expect him to see a lot of action.

  Packers | Davante Adams expected to play    Thu Jan 19, 10:27 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 22.

Footballguys view: How effective will he be, though? Keep an eye on this, as Mike McCarthy has said that in a regular season game, Adams would be sidelined. That's not a great sign, and could be cause for concern.

  Packers | Davante Adams was busy against ATL    Thu Jan 19, 10:22 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams had 12 catches for 74 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8.

Footballguys view: It doesn't really have much impact on this game, but it's worth knowing he can find success against this secondary if Aaron Rodgers has time to throw the ball. Adams is nursing a sore ankle, and Jordy Nelson may not play much, if at all this weekend. Both things will have a big impact on Adams' numbers and bear watching.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson limited Wednesday    Wed Jan 18, 06:38 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: He's no lock to play against the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game. If the Packers get Nelson back, it would greatly help their offense in a game where they'll likely have to play catch-up football. Nelson's status is unknown at this time, but a limited practice on Wednesday can be seen as a positive sign.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison misses practice    Wed Jan 18, 06:24 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: The rookie may have to do more if Jordy Nelson or Davante Adams can't play. Hamstring injuries are tricky and can be aggravated if not given time to heal. Expect the Packers to take it easy on the rookie WR this week.

  Packers | Davante Adams to miss some practices    Wed Jan 18, 03:01 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) is not expected to practice until Saturday, Jan. 21, at the earliest, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: There's no telling if the Packers are going to have Jordy Nelson on the field against the Falcons, and now Adams is no lock to play either. That would greatly impact the Packers passing attack if those two are missing from the game.

  Panthers | Mose Frazier signs    Wed Jan 18, 12:38 AM

The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent WR Mose Frazier (49ers) to a reserve-future contract Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Memphis in 2016, Frazier was Paxton Lynch's favorite target in college. The Broncos did pick him up, but Frazier was placed on the practice squad after camp. Frazier was bounced from the practice squad in Denver only to find himself getting picked up by Buffalo then briefly by the 49ers. He's a small, quick receiver who has dangerous moves in the open field.
