Green Bay Packers

NFC North

Fantasy Impact: Watkins will now miss at least the next four games. With the Packers dealing with multiple injured wide receivers, the move allows them to elevate Juwann Winfree from the team's practice squad. The team hopes the 29-year-old will be able to return to the field after missing just four games.

Mason Crosby (illness) was absent from practice on Friday. However, he does not have an injury designation, suggesting that he's on track to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. (Source: John Miller on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Evidently, the Packers feel confident that Crosby will be healthy enough to play Sunday despite missing the last two days of practice. He has converted all four extra points and both of his field goals this season.

Allen Lazard (ankle) was limited in practice on Friday and is officially listed as questionable heading into Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (Source: John Miller on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lazard was absent on Thursday but limited on Wednesday and Friday. He made his 2022 debut last week, catching two passes for 13 yards and one touchdown. As Aaron Rodgers' top wide receiver, Lazard falls into the mid-to-low WR3 range this week.

Randall Cobb (illness) was sidelined for his third consecutive practice on Friday. He is officially listed as questionable heading into Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (Source: John Miller on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is somewhat of a surprise that Cobb still has a chance to play Sunday despite not practicing at all this week. However, with the Packers dealing with numerous injuries on offense, it appears Green Bay is keeping all of its options on the table. Even if active, Cobb would merely fill a supporting role behind Allen Lazard (knee).

Christian Watson (hamstring) missed his second consecutive practice on Friday. He is officially listed as questionable heading into Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (Source: John Miller on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Watson hasn't practiced since Wednesday when he logged a limited session. Still, the rookie has a chance to suit up Sunday. The 23-year-old has turned seven targets into five catches and 43 yards this year.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur said LT David Bakhtiari will practice again on Friday. (Source: Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This would be two straight practices for Bakhtiari after missing practice on Wednesday. He would appear to be on the right side of questionable with back-to-back practices, though the Packers are still being very cautious with his return.

The Packers' defense generated three sacks and forced one turnover during their 27-10 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: After allowing an early touchdown, the Packers' defense put the clamps on Justin Fields and the Bears' offense the rest of the way. They will have a tough test next week against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers in Tampa.

Robert Tonyan caught both of the balls that came his way for 11 yards in the Week 2 win over the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Tonyan played on about 40 percent of the offensive snaps for the second straight game. Look for that number to increase and his involvement in the passing game to follow as the season progresses. Tonyan is a good guy to have as a backup or keep an eye on in free agency in fantasy leagues.

Romeo Doubs had three passes come his way in Week 2, catching two of them for 27 yards. Both receptions came on quick wide receiver screens that Doubs weaved through defenders for yards after the catch.

Fantasy Impact: With Allen Lazard back in the mix, Doubs only played on 37 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps in Week 2 after playing on 57 percent in Week 1. With Aaron Rodgers spreading the ball around, none of the Packers' wide receivers can be started in fantasy leagues right now. Doubs may still be worth a roster spot unless there is an attractive free agent available.

AJ Dillon churned out 61 yards on 18 carries in the 27-10 win over the Bears. He added one catch on three targets for six yards to his Week 2 stat line.

Fantasy Impact: Dillon ended up with more carries than Aaron Jones again (18 to 15) but it was Jones who stole the show for fantasy owners this week. This backfield will remain an even split going forward which sets up both backs for fantasy success. Dillon and the Packers will face the Buccaneers in Week 3.

Aaron Jones had 15 carries for 132 yards on the ground including a 15-yard touchdown run. He followed that up by catching all three of his targets for 38 yards with another score from eight yards out on a forward pitch from Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Impact: After being limited to just eight touches in the opener, the Packers made it a point to get Jones the ball in Week 2 against the Bears with great success. The backfield workload was still split between Jones (18 touches) and A.J. Dillon (19 touches) as it will continue to be while both players are healthy. There is enough fantasy goodness to go around for both players, especially when the Packers are playing with a lead. Running will be tougher next week in Tampa Bay against a good Buccaneers run defense.

Aaron Rodgers completed 19 of his 25 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in the 27-10 win over the Bears. Both of his touchdown tosses came in the second quarter from a short distance including an eight-yard pitch to Aaron Jones and a quick slant to Allen Lazard from five yards out. He added 10 rushing yards on five carries.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers and the entire Packers offense looked a lot sharper in Week 2 compared to their Week 1 loss in Minnesota. The Packers ran the ball 38 times compared to just 25 pass attempts which could be their desired formula for success this season which could limit Rodgers' fantasy production. However, Rodgers will likely need to pass more often next week on the road against the Buccaneers who feature a stout run defense.

Elgton Jenkins will be back at practice Monday, according to head coach Matt LaFleur. (Source: Ryan Wood on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jenkins has been limited to individual drills since being activated off the PUP list. The hope is that Jenkins will have enough to time to see if Jenkins will be ready for Week 1 against Minnesota. Jenkins and David Bakhitari will be key players to watch as the Packers trim the roster to 53 players by tomorrow afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Hill is still trying to recover from a torn ACL he suffered in October 2021. The Packers will have Tyler Goodson and Patrick Taylor as backups to Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon to start the season.

Marcedes Lewis was one of the inactive players to miss Friday’s win over the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis is a 38-year-old veteran that was rumored to be on the chopping block in the offseason when the Packers were looking to save on cap space. Despite a return to the Packers, the veteran TE will likely hold limited fantasy value. He is currently unranked in consensus ADP, according to FantasyPros.

Tyler Davis secured his one target for seven yards in a win over the Saints Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Davis recorded just four catches for 35 yards in 14 games last season. Unless the Packers choose to carry four TEs in 2022, Davis is not likely to carry any fantasy value.
