Aaron Rodgers (knee) is questionable for Week 3 against the Redskins.

Rodgers has yet to practice this week but the plan is for him to work out on Saturday. Despite the questionable tag, Rodgers is fully expected to go Sunday at Washington. Even at much less than 100 percent, he belongs in all fantasy lineups.

Aaron Rodgers (knee) will practice Saturday.

Rodgers is following the same script as last week, resting mid-week before getting work in on Saturday. At this point, it would be a surprise if he didn't play against the Redskins in Week 3. He remains a QB1 even with one good leg on the road.
Sep 21 - 10:37 AM

Packers ILB Oren Burks (shoulder) will play special teams if he is active this week.

Green Bay needs help at inside linebacker, but they do not want to rush the rookie. He should find his way into a starting job at some point this season.

Aaron Rodgers (knee) will not practice Thursday.

Rodgers followed the same script last week before getting in some work on Saturday and playing against the Vikings. It would be a surprise if that does not happen again this week. He should be in fantasy lineups against Washington on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers said there's "concern" his knee injury could get worse.

"Obviously that's a concern," Rodgers said after missing Wednesday's practice. "Hopefully it goes the other way." Rodgers looked noticeably limited against the Vikings and confirmed he's still not 100 percent. The Packers are scaling back Rodgers' practice reps to avoid setbacks, but he's going to continue playing through his knee sprain in Week 3.

Aaron Rodgers (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Rodgers' knee isn't close to 100 percent right now, but he's going to keep playing through the pain. He may not practice much this week, but Rodgers should be out there against the Redskins in Week 3.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Jones will play behind both Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery in his return from suspension this week against the Redskins.

"Jamaal and Ty have played good football," McCarthy said. "I know what Aaron gives us, but his role will be secondary. Jamaal and Ty will be in the first slot." Jones is off a two-game ban and will not be handed anything off the bat. He's not a fantasy starter right now and remains nothing more than a bench stash. Jones is long on talent, but Williams and Montgomery have reliability.
Sep 19 - 11:56 AM

Coach Mike McCarthy admitted CB Kevin King (groin) will be "hard-pressed" to play Week 3 against the Redskins.

King is the Packers' starting corner alongside Tramon Williams and Jaire Alexander. Davon House took King's place last week after he was hurt and will fill that role against Alex Smith, who doesn't challenge outside corners much.

Speaking Monday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers (knee) was "sore," but that he escaped without further damage in Sunday's tie.

McCarthy did add that he was unsure if Rodgers would be any better physically this week. Rodgers was noticeably limited against the Vikings but not to a Sam Bradford degree. The schedule is letting up a bit this week in the Redskins after tough early-season matchups in the Bears and Vikings.
Sep 17 - 2:57 PM

Aaron Jones is eligible to return from his two-game suspension this week.

The Packers will have to make a move to get him on the active roster, but it would be a surprise if he is not on the field Sunday. That is a concern for Jamaal Williams, who has operated as the clear lead back the first two games, but Williams is more reliable in the passing game and has a two-week headstart. Jones is just a bench stash at this point.
Sep 17 - 12:44 PM

Ty Montgomery rushed five times for 31 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards in the Packers' Week 2 tie with the Vikings.

It was an improvement on the four touches Montgomery saw in Week 1, but he still has been mostly uninvolved through two weeks. More worryingly, Aaron Jones is due back from suspension in Week 3. Montgomery is not a must-roster player in standard scoring.
Sep 16 - 5:36 PM

Jamaal Williams rushed 16 times for 59 yards and hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 12 yards in the Packers' Week 2 tie with the Vikings.

Williams did not get much going against a tough defense, but he once again worked as the clear lead back ahead of Ty Montgomery. That could change moving forward, however, with Aaron Jones due back from suspension. Williams is a more reliable option in the passing game who had a two-week headstart on Jones, so he will likely retain the lead job. Even so, he will be a risky FLEX play next week in Washington.
Sep 16 - 5:35 PM

Randall Cobb hauled in 4-of-6 targets for 30 yards in the Packers' Week 2 tie with the Vikings.

Cobb did nothing wrong in this game, but he just did not get the opportunities, tying with Geronimo Allison for the third-most on the team. He did come up with a big catch with Rodgers under pressure in the fourth quarter, but that was about it. He should have more success next week against Washington.
Sep 16 - 5:23 PM

Geronimo Allison hauled in all six of his targets for 64 yards in the Packers' Week 2 tie with the Vikings.

Coming off a big opening game, Allison was not targeted in the first half. Even so, he made his presence known by blocking a field goal in the first quarter which was recovered for a touchdown. He did make more noise after the break including an important third-down conversion late in the fourth quarter and a catch in overtime. Allison might struggle to consistently produce behind Davante Adams, Jimmy Graham, and Randall Cobb, but he now has 11 catches for 133 yards and a touchdown through two games. He needs to be rostered in most formats.
Sep 16 - 5:19 PM

Jimmy Graham hauled in 6-of-8 targets for 95 yards in the Packers' Week 2 tie with the Vikings.

It was a much better second outing for Graham, but he could have had an even bigger fantasy day. He just missed on two deep targets including one in which he was clearly interfered, and he had a touchdown called back on a questionable holding call. He had another chance deep down the field on a free play, but the ball was knocked away. Even so, this was a promising performance for Graham’s rest-of-season outlook. He will be a solid TE1 next week in Washington.
