  Packers | Marquez Valdez-Scantling hopes to play    Sun Oct 20, 09:01 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle, knee) hopes to be able to play in Week 7's game against the Oakland Raiders despite being listed as questionable on the injury report, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Valdes-Scantling might be ruled out by now if the Packers had any healthy experienced receivers. He's a risky play against the Raiders, but could be on the receiving end of a long pass from Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) will be a game-time decision for Week 7's contest against the Oakland Raiders.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison upgraded to questionable    Sat Oct 19, 12:49 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) on Saturday, Oct. 19, was upgraded to questionable, signaling he has better chance of playing in Week 7 on Sunday, Oct. 20.

Footballguys view: The Packers are going to be without Davante Adams again in Week 7. They also might be without Marquez Valdes-Scantling on Sunday which would give Allison, Jake Kumerow and Allen Lazard more work.

  Packers | Aaron Jones on track to play    Fri Oct 18, 04:46 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Footballguys view: A good sign for Jones here. The Packers RBBC will feature Jones as the starter and Jamaal Williams as a reserve runner. Jones is a RB1 for Fantasy GMs while Williams should be considered more of a flex play with upside.

  Packers | Davante Adams to miss another week    Fri Oct 18, 01:54 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) will miss Week 7 with a turf toe injury, coach Matt LaFleur announced Friday, Oct. 18.

Footballguys view: The Packers are incredibly thin at the wide receiver position. Adams is out and Marquez Valdes-Scantling plus Geronimo Allison may also miss the game against the Raiders. We could see Jake Kumerow and Allen Lazard as the top receivers for the Packers on Sunday.

  Packers | Aaron Jones logs another full practice    Thu Oct 17, 05:41 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are dismayed over the back and forth we see between Jones and Jamaal Williams over the last two weeks. Jones should still be considered an RB1 against the Raiders in Week 7 while Williams is more of a RB3 or flex play.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham misses another practice    Thu Oct 17, 05:36 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs have other options at the position. Graham isn't the player he used to be and we're watching to see if the Packers activate rookie Jace Sternberger off the Injured Reserve in a couple of weeks.

Green Bay Packers WRs Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee, ankle) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) were sidelined at practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Allen Lazard is looking like an excellent Week 7 sleeper against the Oakland secondary. Darrius Shepherd and Jake Kumerow could also get more opportunity

  Packers | Two PUP players able to practice    Wed Oct 16, 09:35 PM

Green Bay Packers SS Ibraheim Campbell (knee) and TE Jace Sternberger (ankle) were able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 16. The team has 21 days to let them practice to decide upon activating them and having the players count against the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: Sternberger could be a shot in the arm for an offense that isn't getting much from Jimmy Graham. Monitor his status in TE premium leagues.

  Packers | Marquez Valdes-Scantling able to finish    Tue Oct 15, 12:39 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling finished with two catches and 48 yards in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions. He left the game briefly due to an undisclosed injury, but was able to return and finish.

Footballguys view: Valdes-Scantling's deep catch was an over the shoulder beaut. He's worth holding to wait for Davante Adams return, which will actually help him get more one-on-ones in the deep passing game. He might hit vs. Oakland this week, but watch the practice reports to make sure his injury doesn't flare up with the adrenaline out of his system.

  Packers | Aaron Jones has forgettable evening    Tue Oct 15, 12:27 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones rushed 11 times for 47 yards with a fumble lost in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions. He also had four grabs for 13 yards on seven targets, but he dropped a sure touchdown downfield, too.

Footballguys view: Jones could have easily had around 100 total yards and a score in this one without the drop, and perhaps he wouldn't have given way to Jamaal Williams as much if he had secured the ball on the play. His value is dropping but he is still a solid RB2/Flex against Oakland.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams goes over 100 yards    Tue Oct 15, 12:21 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams ran 14 times for 104 yards in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions, and he had four grabs for 32 yards and a touchdown. His last run was almost a touchdown, as the Lions were going to allow him to score so they could get the ball back, but he gave himself up at the 1-yard line rather than score.

Footballguys view: Williams was strong and energetic on all of his touches and showed a renewed burst. He has forced a full blown committee after Aaron Jones had two big gaffes and should be considered an RB2/Flex against the Raiders this week.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers tosses pair of TDs    Tue Oct 15, 12:17 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 24-of-39 passes for 283 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions while running for 10 yards.

Footballguys view: Rodgers was without his #1 receiver and at times his #2 and #3 in this one. He was able to muster a comeback win with the help of Allen Lazard, Jamaal Williams, and some might argue, the referees. He'll face an easier Oakland defense in Week 7, but will be throwing to a ragtag group of receivers unless Davante Adams can return.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison will not return    Mon Oct 14, 11:04 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) is still being evaluated for concussion and a chest injury and he will not return to the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Allison has a short week to get ready and healthy for the matchup against the Raiders. The team is thin at wide receiver right now but will probably be conservative with him.

  Packers | Full practice for Jamaal Williams     Sat Oct 12, 05:12 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (concussion) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 12, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Williams is ready to get back on the field for the Packers. In the Monday night game against the Lions, Williams should play as a power change-of-pace option behind starter Aaron Jones.

  Packers | Marquez Valdes-Scantling practices    Sat Oct 12, 05:08 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (calf, hamstring) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 12, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: That's a good sign for Valdes-Scantling. He's likely the No. 1 wide receiver for the Packers with Davante Adams (toe) out on Monday night against the Lions. Geronimo Allison is the No. 2 receiver behind Valdes-Scantling.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers on track to play    Sat Oct 12, 05:03 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 12, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Rodgers will play on Monday night against the Lions, but his favorite target WR Davante Adams won't. That means the Packers should once again lean on their rushing attack and that makes Rodgers more of a low-end QB1 for Fantasy GMs in Week 6.
