NFL-Packers play waiting game over wide receivers Nelson, Adams

The Green Bay Packers face major question marks over the fitness of wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams as they prepare for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Falcons in Atlanta. Nelson, a four-time Pro Bowl selection and the league's receiving touchdowns leader in 2016, has been sidelined by broken ribs since Jan. 8 while Adams injured his ankle during the fourth quarter of last week's divisional playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. "I'm not sure how we're going to line up or who's going to line up (on Sunday)," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on...

Oakland Raiders seek NFL's blessing for move to Las Vegas

The NFL's Oakland Raiders filed paperwork with the league on Thursday to move to Las Vegas following months of negotiations to build a new stadium in Nevada, officials said. The National Football League said in a statement the Raiders' application would be reviewed in the coming weeks by its stadium and finance committees. Raiders owner Mark Davis, whose late father, Al Davis, helped burnish the team's outlaw reputation, has expressed dissatisfaction with the aging Oakland Coliseum, in the San Francisco Bay Area, and for much of last year pursued a possible move to Las Vegas.

Davante Adams unable to commit for Packers until weekend

Davante Adams (ankle) won't guarantee his status for the NFC Championship Game. What It Means: Adams has yet to practice this week and plans on testing his ankle out on Saturday. Assuming he plays, Adams will likely be on a snap count, meaning Randall Cobb should see plenty of targets as one of the few healthy receivers available for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Our models remain fans of Adams for the conference finals, ranking him as the fourth-best fantasy wide receiver with a projection of 5 catches for 64 yards and 0.57 touchdowns versus the Atlanta...

Jordy Nelson (ribs) not in pads at Packers' practice

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ribs) participated without pads in Thursday's practice. What It Means: Nelson was also limited on Wednesday, but this would suggest that he hasn't been cleared for contact. Despite being well below 100 percent, there appears to be some optimism that Jordy can play on Sunday. If Nelson plays, we project him as the sixth-best wide receiver option for fantasy this week. Our models project him for 42 receiving yards and 0.32 touchdowns on three catches. Source: Rotoworld.com

Steelers' Ladarius Green downgraded to out Thursday with concussion, flu

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Ladarius Green was listed as out at Thursday's practice due to both concussion and illness. What It Means: Green was able to practice on a limited based on Wednesday, so this is pretty brutal news. It looks like he will once again sit out while Jesse James earns another start in Green's place. Without accounting for Green's expected absence, our models project James to catch 3 passes for 27 yards and 0.14 touchdowns versus New England. Source: Rotoworld.com

Julio Jones (toe) says he'll be ready for Falcons on Sunday

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (toe) remained sidelined Thursday, but insisted he'll be ready for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. What It Means: Jones aggravated his toe injury in last Saturday's victory, but there's no concern about his status for the conference title game. Our models aren't worried, and rank Jones as the top-projected fantasy receiver for the Championship Round. We have him pegged for 81 yards and 0.74 touchdowns on 5 receptions against the Green Bay Packers. Source: Rotoworld.com
