Fantasy Update

Green Bay Packers wide receivers Jordy Nelson (ribs), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) could all three be game-time decisions for the NFC Championship Game, head coach Mike McCarthy said. What It Means: Nelson has been progressing slowly in practice and could make it out there on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Adams and Allison suffered their respective injuries in the Divisional Round, so they'll likely be on a snap count if they do play. Randall Cobb will be busy while Jeff Janis should see more work than normal. Our models currently rank Adams as...

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...

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. What It Means: Adams was injured late in Sunday's Divisional Round win over the Dallas Cowboys, but was able to return after being helped to the sidelined. If Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Adams both sit, then the Packers' top pass-catchers in the NFC Championship Game will be Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Jeff Janis, Jared Cook and Richard Rodgers. Wide receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery may also see some more targets. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he doesn't believe Adams will practice until...

Five Things I Liked from Packers-Cowboys and Steelers-Chiefs

After three days of ugly football, we were finally treated to some good games yesterday. It was a treat particularly because Jets fans have not been exposed to much quality football this season. While this is not a comprehensive breakdown of the games, I wanted to share some things I liked about these games. Aaron Rodgers' control of the game You always hear about how a great quarterback can lift a team. It's true, but you don't always hear people talk about concrete examples so I wanted to share a play that provides an example. Here Randall Cobb is coming around to fake an end around. ...

Packers hope to get Jordy Nelson (ribs) back for possible NFC Championship

The Green Bay Packers have "legitimate hope" wide receiver Jordy Nelson (broken ribs) will return next week if they advance to the NFC Championship game, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. What It Means: Nelson has already been ruled out for the Divisional Round, but was on the field before Sunday's game and has his sights set on playing in the NFC Championship next week. Of course, that would require the Packers to beat a Dallas Cowboys team they already lost to once this season. Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will lead the receiving corps in Nelson's absence this...

Packers don't plan on having Jordy Nelson for Divisional Round

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ribs) isn't expected to play in Sunday's Divisional Round matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, based off comments from quarterback Aaron Rodgers. What It Means: "We're going to try to get this one and hopefully get him back if he can't play this week," Rodgers said. Head coach Mike McCarthy suggested Nelson could be active if he is able to participate in Saturday's walkthrough, but that's highly unlikely. Geronimo Allison will be asked to step up while Davante Adams and Randall Cobb take over as the top receiving options. Without...

Jordy Nelson (ribs) working with rehab group at Packers' practice

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (ribs) will work with the rehab group at practice through Friday. What It Means: Nelson still isn't expected to play after suffering at least two broken ribs in Sunday's Wild Card victory over the New York Giants, but if he's able to participate in Saturday's walkthrough, then there might be a chance. Geronimo Allison will be asked to step up if Nelson sits, while Randall Cobb and Davante Adams would also benefit as Aaron Rodger's top receivers. numberFire's metrics currently rank Adams as the WR4 in the Divisional Round for fantasy...

Packers' Geronimo Allison facing drug charge

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison is facing marijuana charges stemming from a September arrest. What It Means: Arrested in September, Allison was charged in December. He has a court date later this month, but that won't likely affect his playoffs eligibility. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) banged up, Allison will probably be Green Bay's third receiver for the Divisional Round. He had a productive final few weeks of the regular season with Randall Cobb sidelined. On 22 targets in the regular season, Allison racked up 0.94 Reception Net Expected Points per target....

Jordy Nelson broke 'at least' two ribs in Packers' Wild Card victory

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson suffered at least two fractured ribs in Sunday's Wild Card win over the New York Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. What It Means: Rapoport claims it would take an "incredible effort" for Nelson to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. The Packers would certainly prefer to have their number-one receiver available for a playoff matchup, but the offense also remains plenty capable without him. Randall Cobb and Davante Adams will take over as Aaron Rodger's top wideouts while Geronimo Allison is going to see an...

Packers Wild Card Snap Counts: Receiving corps adjusts to loss of Jordy Nelson

Packers Wild Card Snap Counts: Receiving corps adjusts to loss of Jordy Nelson

Green Bay used a heavier dose of Cobb, Allison, and Cook when their top receiver went down, but they didn’t miss a beat. The biggest storyline coming out of the Green Bay Packers’ 38-13 win over the New York Giants on Sunday is Jordy Nelson’s injury. While we still do not know exactly what the problem is, we know that Nelson had to leave the game in the first half after a hard hit to his left side and did not return. With Nelson knocked out, the Packers turned to a rookie and a couple of veterans to pick up the slack. They did more than just pick up the slack, too; Randall Cobb...
