Fantasy Impact:

According to Packers head coach Matt LaFleur, Alexander will put off shoulder surgery and play this season. The All-Pro corner will miss at least the next three weeks. This is a massive blow to a Packers defense that allows 209 passing yards per game, the eighth-best in the NFL. Eric Stokes will replace Alexander in the lineup and should have an expanded role while the 24-year-old standout corner is sidelined.
