Green Bay Packers

NFC North

WR Davante Adams (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday Night Football against the Saints. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: As expected, Adams will not play Sunday Night Football against the Saints. He was considered doubtful heading in Week 3 and was ultimately ruled out. He didn’t practice all week and will look to return next Monday against the Falcons. Look for Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to be QB Aaron Rodgers’ top two targets in Sunday’s showdown against the Saints.

Green Bay Packers D/ST totaled four sacks and an INT-return TD while allowing 21 points in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The Packers D/ST had a strong performance against Matt Stafford and the Lions, getting to the quarterback four times and scoring on a seven-yard INT return to the house. Next week's trip to New Orleans will be a matchup to avoid for Green Bay D/ST.

Mason Crosby made both of his field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point attempts in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Crosby has now made all 13 of his combined attempts through the first two weeks of the season. He remains an elite option at the position.

Robert Tonyan brought in two of three targets for 25 yards and a TD in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Tonyan found himself on the receiving end of an Aaron Rodgers touchdown, posting the third score in his three-year NFL career. Tonyan rarely sees meaningful playing time or targets, so there’s no reason to pick him up off the waiver wire after Week 2.

Allen Lazard caught three of five targets for 45 yards in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Despite Davante Adams’ early exit, it was Marquez Valdes-Scantling – not Lazard – who absorbed the majority of Aaron Rodgers’ targets. Lazard is a hit-or-miss flex in good matchups, though his value would increase if Adams is forced to miss time.

Category: Game Recaps

Marquez Valdes-Scantling brought in three of seven targets for 64 yards in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: MVS had another positive performance in Week 2, picking up the slack with Davante Adams making an early exit. Valdes-Scantling is worth a pickup ahead of Week 3 with standalone value, though he’ll get a boost if Adams is forced to miss any time.

Category: Game Recaps

A.J. Dillon rushed five times for 17 yards in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie mustered a handful of touches in this one, but he’s not involved enough in the Packers’ offense to be anything more than a dynasty stash. Dillon has no value in most redraft leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Jamaal Williams rushed eight times for 63 yards in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams made the most of his limited opportunities, though he wasn’t able to provide much in the way of fantasy-relevant production. His value last season was tied to his work as a receiver out of the backfield, though he’s seen little involvement in that department so far this season. He’s nothing more than a handcuff at this time.

Aaron Jones rushed 18 times for 168 yards and two TDs, grabbing four of eight targets for 68 yards and a TD in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a classic Jones game as he consistently broke off big gainers on the ground and through the air, racking up 236 yards of total offense and a hat trick to boot. After leading the league in touchdowns a season ago, Jones is on the right track to repeating that feat in 2020, with four scores to his name through two games.

Aaron Rodgers completed 18 of 30 pass attempts for 240 yards and two TDs, adding two carries for 12 yards in the Packers’ 42-21 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers lit up Minnesota in Week 1, and seemed a forgone conclusion that he would do the same to Detroit in Week 2, though he wasn’t needed in this one. Aaron Jones piled up 236 total yards to lead Green Bay to victory, letting Rodgers take a backseat. That script might flip in Week 3, when the Packers face the Saints’ stout run defense on SNF.

Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown was placed on Injured Reserve on Saturday due to a knee injury. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: St. Brown hasn't been able to do much this offseason, and his knee injury lands him on IR. He was inactive for Week 1, and this does little to impact the Packers WR corps of Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Packers CB Jaire Alexander popped up on the injury report with a hand injury but is expected to play against the Lions on Sunday. (Source: Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Alexander was worthy of the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award after collecting a sack, interception, and safety in Week 1. The former first-rounder expects to play through his injury, which will be an upgrade to the Packers DST.

Packers starting guard Lane Taylor will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. (Source: Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is feared that Taylor suffered a torn ACL in his right knee on Sunday that will require season-ending surgery. Taylor has had a run of back luck the last couple of seasons. He tore his biceps in week 3 of 2019 and was rumored to be on the trade block as recently as two weeks ago. Fantasy owners will have to keep a close eye on how this may impact key players such as Aaron Jones, Davante Adams, and Aaron Rodgers.

Josiah Deguara led all Packers tight ends with two targets and one reception during Sunday's game. Deguara's catch went for 12 yards in the Packers win against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: There were some questions heading into the season as to who the Packers top pass catching tight end would be. Deguara left this game as that player, but it did not lead to much fantasy production at all. It looked like the Packers are comfortable using their receivers and running backs as their main pass catchers. It is likely that the Packers will have a different tight end lead the team in targets each week unless someone can break themselves away from the crowd.

Tyler Ervin rushed three times for 38 yards and caught his only target for six yards in the Packers’ 43-34 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ervin saw a smattering of touches, but his involvement in the Packers’ backfield isn’t enough to make him worth rostering week-to-week.

Category: Game Recaps

Jace Sternberger failed to bring in his lone target in the Packers’ 43-34 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: As expected, Sternberger was a non-factor in Sunday’s win. Green Bay’s passing game is not favorable for tight ends, and the talented target isn’t worth a spot on your bench at this point.

Tim Boyle is currently listed as the Packers' backup quarterback on the team's official website. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: These depth charts don't mean anything. One has to figure that Jordan Love would enter the game if anything happened to Aaron Rodgers this season.

Packers rookie Jordan Love is listed as the third-string QB on the team's initial depth chart. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: These depth charts don't mean much at all. They're usually handled by an intern for the team's website. Love didn't have a strong training camp, however. Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reported that Green Bay's first-round pick this year "has yet to even provide a glimpse at why the Packers traded up to draft him in the first round." He's a development project for the organization.

Jake Kumerow, a wideout cut by Green Bay on Saturday, has reportedly been signed off waivers to the Buffalo Bills practice squad. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kumerow had 20 catches for 322 receiving yards and two touchdowns in his two seasons with the Packers. Kumerow's signing with Buffalo provides depth and size at the wide receiver position.

The Packers have released running back Dexter Williams. (Source: Ryan Wood on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams was a sixth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft who saw only five carries last season, totaling 11 yards. The Notre Dame product is a candidate for the practice squad if he's not picked up by another team. As expected, the Packers are poised to enter the 2020 season with Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon, and Jamaal Williams atop their running back depth chart.
