Green Bay Packers

NFC North

Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday as he continues to deal with a concussion and a chest injury.

Fantasy Impact: While the chest injury seems less concerning at this time, Allison has yet to clear the league's concussion protocol. He should be considered questionable heading into Sunday's matchup with the Raiders until the team says otherwise.

Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling missed practice for the second straight day on Wednesday as he continues to deal with ankle and knee injuries.

Fantasy Impact: Valdes-Scantling is one of many Packers wide receivers who is banged up heading into the team's Week 7 matchup against the Oakland Raiders, and he should be considered questionable until the team provides an official update on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Adams has not been able to play since leaving the team's Week 4 matchup against the Eagles, though he is reportedly improving. Look for an update on his status on Friday, but consider him very questionable until there is an update that says otherwise.

Packers tight end Jimmy Graham missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday as he continues to deal with an ankle injury. (Source: Packers.com)

Fantasy Impact: An official update will come on Friday when the team releases their injury designations, but Graham owners should start making other plans for Sunday. Graham had just two catches for 17 yards in last week's win over the Lions.

Talented Green Bay Packers tight end Jace Sternberger was listed as a full participant on the team's Wednesday practice report. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Sternberger is eligible to return in two weeks time. One of the most talented tight ends in this year's draft class, he could very possibly make an immediate push for snaps at the expense of Jimmy Graham. He makes for a great speculative add for team's that have the extra roster space.

Za’Darius Smith ended Monday’s win over the Lions with five total tackles (three solo) and one sack.

Fantasy Impact: Za’Darius Smith is currently siting one sack behind Preston Smith for the team lead and ’sack king.’ Both Smith’s are worth rostering in IDP leagues for their individual ability to get to the QB.

Category: Game Recaps


Preston Smith finished Monday’s win over the Lions with four total tackles and 1.5 sacks.

Fantasy Impact: Smith is the team lead in sacks with seven through Week 6. He is worth rostering in most IDP leagues, especially in deeper formats.

Aaron Rodgers completed 24 of 39 pass attempts for 283 yards, two TDs, and an INT, adding three carries for 10 yards in the Packers’ 23-22 win over the Lions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers didn't have a huge game from an efficiency or a yardage standpoint, but his two touchdowns and 283 yards were enough to make him an effective fantasy play in Week 6. He could be poised for a huge game in Week 7 against the Raiders.

Jamaal Williams rushed 14 times for 104 yards, adding four receptions for 32 yards and a TD in the Packers’ 23-22 win over the Lions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams saw extended run in this one after Aaron Jones lost a fumble and dropped a would-be touchdown early in the game. Williams cruised to an enormous 136-yard day, hitting paydirt as well. It’s unclear what the backfield touch distribution will be moving forward, though it’s likely Jones still has a long leash, given his big-time production this season.

Allen Lazard caught four of five targets for 65 yards and a TDin the Packers’ 23-22 win over the Lions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: With Davante Adams (turf toe) out and Geronimo Allison evaluated for a concussion, Lazard had his number called and made a big impact. He led the team in receiving and scored his first touchdown of the season. If the Packers are shorthanded in Week 7, Lazard could be an interesting streamer or daily dart throw against Oakland.

Aaron Jones carried 11 times for 47 yards, adding four receptions for 13 yards in the Packers’ 23-22 win over the Lions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Jones found his way to the doghouse after scoring four times in last week’s win. He lost a fumble and dropped a wide-open touchdown in the first quarter and promptly saw Jamaal Williams rumble his way to 136 yards and a touchdown. Jones should be afforded some slack after the monster games he’s accumulated thus far and has a chance to rectify this performance in Week 7 against Oakland.

Mason Crosby made all three of his field goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts in the Packers’ 23-22 win over the Lions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: His three makes included the game-winning 23-yarder as time expired. Keep rolling with Crosby as an elite kicker option.

Green Bay Packers prized rookie safety Darnell Savage Jr. has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Detroit Lions. (Source: Packers.com)

Fantasy Impact: Savage has been an impact player in both real life and in IDP. Luckily for fantasy owners he was on the wrong side of doubtful since Friday, so most, if not all, should have already found and started their replacement options.

Kevin King finished Sunday’s 34-24 win over the Cowboys with six solo tackles, an interception (2), and a forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact: King is currently third on the team in total tackles (23). He also has one sack, one forced fumble and two interceptions to his name. He is worth watching in deeper IDP leagues.

Green Bay Packers D/ST totaled three sacks and three interceptions in the Packers’ 34-24 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Despite allowing 24 points, the Packers D/ST had a strong game in the win. A home game against Detroit awaits in Week 6.

Marcedes Lewis caught both of his targets for 17 yards in the Packers’ 34-24 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis has been a low-usage player for Green Bay all season, and his limited workload makes him a player to avoid on fantasy rosters.

Category: Game Recaps


Robert Tonyan caught his only target for 23 yards in the Packers’ 34-24 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Tonyan played behind Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis and continues to see minimal action in the offense. He doesn’t need to be rostered.

Tra Carson rushed six times for 14 yards, adding four receptions for 18 yards in the Packers’ 34-24 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Carson got 10 touches in the win, seeing extended work behind Aaron Jones with Jamaal Williams out. He’s not on the fantasy radar outside of deeper leagues, and he’ll lose all value when Williams returns.

Blake Martinez ended Thursday’s 34-27 loss to the Eagles with 15 total tackles (10 solo).

Fantasy Impact: Martinez continues to prove why he is a defensive force for the Packers reaching 47 total tackles (33 solo) through the first four games played this season. He needs to be started in all leagues on a weekly basis. Green Bay will look to get back on track as they take on the Cowboys in Week 5.

Kenny Clark recorded two tackles (one solo), one sack, one forced fumble and one tackle for a loss in the Packers’ 21-16 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Clark did it all Sunday, pressuring Kirk Cousins regularly and managing a sack and a forced fumble. Through two games, he’s totaled seven tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks. Clark should be on the IDP radar given the success of the revamped Packers defense.
