  • Robert Tonyan Has TE1 Appeal In Week 3

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan will have a favorable matchup in Week 3 against the 49ers. After a dismal Week 1 performance (among many other Packers offensive players), Tonyan bounced back with 52 yards and one touchdown last week against the Lions. That same Detroit team utilized tight end T.J. Hockenson in Week 1 to great success against the 49ers, posting 97 yards with one touchdown. Tonyan should be a factor in the red zone and has a chance at posting TE1 numbers in Week 3.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling Not A Fantasy Option Right Now

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling will take on a 49ers defense Sunday night that currently has allowed the fourth fewest fantasy points to receivers through two games. After being lauded in training camp, Valdes-Scantling's regular season has landed with a thud. The 26-year-old has seen 12 targets through the first two weeks but has come up with only three catches for 17 yards. Until he begins to raise fantasy floor, Valdes-Scantling is not a fantasy option.

  • Randall Cobb Lacks Fantasy Appeal

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb will face a 49ers defense that currently is allowing the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers. Cobb has been targeted only four times through the first two games and has three receptions for 58 yards. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has found Cobb for some productive plays but the receivers lack of targets should keep him off the fantasy radar for Week 3.

  • Allen Lazard Hopes To Bounce Back

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard will try to find a role in the offense Week 3 against the 49ers. Lazard did not receive a target in the team's bounce back win over the Lions in Week 2 and has only two receptions for 16 yards through two games. The 49ers defense currently is allowing the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers. Lazard, at this time, is not worth a fantasy start until he is more involved in the offense.

  • Davante Adams An Easy WR1 Play

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will take on the 49ers Sunday night in Week 3. After a quiet (by his standards) Week 1, Adams bounced back with eight catches for 121 yards last week against the Lions. Adams scored 18 touchdowns last season and will try and find the end zone for the first time against a 49ers secondary that currently is allowing the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers. Adams is a must-start WR1 play in all fantasy formats for Week 3.

  • A.J. Dillon Not Worth A Week 3 Fantasy Start

    Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon will continue to serve as backup to teammate Aaron Jones Week 3 against the 49ers. Dillon is talented but is clearly the RB2 in the offense, especially after Jones exploded for four touchdowns last week. Green Bay will face a 49ers defense that currently is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to opposing running backs through the first two games. Dillon has a favorable matchup but will lack the touches to be considered fantasy viable for Week 3.

  • Can Aaron Jones Repeat Week 2 Success?

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will face a 49ers defense in Week 3 that has struggled to bottle up opposing running backs through the first two games. After a terrible fantasy performance in the season opener, Jones exploded for four touchdowns against the Lions last week. Now he will face a 49ers defense that is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to opposing running backs through the first two weeks. San Francisco has already allowed two different backs to post 20-plus fantasy points against them, which should put Jones back on the RB1 map for Week 3's action.

  • Aaron Rodgers A QB1 Play Against 49ers

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will take on the 49ers Sunday night in Week 3. After a horrid season opener, Rodgers bounced back with 255 passing yards and four touchdowns against the Packers in Week 2. Now he will face a 49ers defense that held the Eagles Jalen Hurts in check last week but allowed 338 passing yards to the Lions Jared Goff in Week 1. For all the doubters crying out that Rodgers and the Packers are already done this season, this matchup provides a quick litmus test to silence the critics. Rodgers needs to be in fantasy lineups and is a QB1 choice for Week 3.

  • Packers Release Jace Sternberger

    The Green Bay Packers are waiving tight end Jace Sternberger on Tuesday, according to a source. Sternberger was the team's third-round selection in 2019. The 25-year-old was suspended for the first two games of the season for violating the league's policy on substances of abuse. Sternberger only had 12 receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown in 18 games with the Packers. Robert Tonyan, who caught a touchdown pass in the Monday night win over the Detroit Lions, is Green Bay's primary pass-catching tight end. Behind him, Green Bay has veteran Marcedes Lewis, Josiah Deguara and Dominique Dafney.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling Fails To Catch A Pass In Week 2

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling failed to register a reception in the team's 35-17 win over the Lions in Week 2. Scantling was targeted four times but came up empty in a bounce back performance for the Packers offense as a whole. The buzz about Valdes-Scantling's impressive training camp has evaporated quickly and is not a fantasy consideration heading into Week 3.

  • A.J. Dillon Sees Only Five Carries In Week 2

    Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon carried the ball five times for 18 yards and added an eight-yard reception in the team's Week 2 win over the Lions. Dillon's RB2 role was considerably minimized with starting running back Aaron Jones racking up 115 total yards with four touchdowns. Dillon is a worthy fantasy stash but any hopes of a timeshare between Jones and Dillon should be officially set aside moving forward.

  • Randall Cobb Registers 26 Yards In Win

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb caught three passes for 26 yards in the team's 35-17 triumph over the Lions. Cobb picked up a nice 14-yard reception but mostly played fourth fiddle behind teammates Devante Adams, Robert Tonyan and Aaron Jones. Cobb could have games where he flashes a solid fantasy stat line in spurts this season but will be very volatile on a week-to-week basis in the coming weeks.

  • Davante Adams Totals 121 Yards In Win

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams caught eight passes for 121 yards in the Packers 35-17 rout of the Lions in Week 2. Adams was highly productive with his nine targets, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers found running back Aaron Jones in the red zone for three short touchdown passes. Adams was lethal all over the field, highlighted by a 48-yard reception in the third quarter. Adams remains one of the elite receivers in the game.

  • Aaron Jones Explodes For Four Touchdowns

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones carried the ball 17 times for 67 yards, added six catches for 48 yards and scored four touchdowns in the Packers win over the Lions. The Packers offense bounced back in a big way and Jones was the beneficiary. Jones was lethal in the red zone, picking up three short-yard touchdown catches and punched in a rushing touchdown with a 1-yard burst. A.J. Dillon and Kylin Hill combined for only seven carries in the game as Jones reminded the fantasy community that he is the Packers clear-cut RB1 in the backfield. Jones will try and keep it rolling next week against the 49ers on Sunday Night Football.

  • Aaron Rodgers Bounces Back Against Lions

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 22-of-27 passes for 255 yards and four touchdowns in the Packers 35-17 victory over the Lions in Week 2. The sky was falling Week 1 but the reigning MVP methodically moved the ball down the field at will. He peppered running back Aaron Jones in the red zone for three touchdowns and found tight end Robert Tonyan for a fourth score. The Packers offense got all of its important offensive weapons going in this game which should bode well for the unit's fantasy prospects heading into Week 3.

  • Equanimeous St. Brown Elevated From Practice Squad

    The Green Bay Packers elevated wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown from the practice squad to the active roster for the Monday night tilt against the Detroit Lions in Week 2. Even if St. Brown sees the field on Monday night, he's unlikely to play a large percentage of the offensive snaps after he couldn't make the team out of training camp this summer. In Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints, Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Randall Cobb, rookie Amari Rodgers and Malik Taylor saw playing time. The 24-year-old St. Brown had just seven catches (13 targets) for 117 yards and one touchdown in 12 games (one start) for the Packers in 2020. He can be ignored everywhere.

  • Josiah Deguara Listed As Doubtful For MNF

    Green Bay Packers tight end Josiah Deguara (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Monday Night Football against the Lions. The 24-year-old did not practice all week long and seems like a lock to be inactive. He played in 8.8 percent of offensive and 27.3 percent of special teams snaps last week. Assuming Deguara is held out, Dominique Dafney would likely serve as the team's No. 3 tight end.

  • Josiah Deguara In The Concussion Protocol

    Green Bay Packers tight end Josiah Deguara (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol ahead of the Monday night game against the Detroit Lions, and he missed practice on Thursday and Friday. Deguara suffered a head injury in the season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers and seems unlikely to play this Monday night. The 24-year-old tight end ended up playing only 8.8 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 1, and he wasn't targeted in the passing attack. Robert Tonyan will remain Green Bay's primary pass-catching tight end, and Marcedes Lewis and Dominique Dafney could see more snaps if Deguara is unable to pass through the league's concussion protocol in order to play against Green Bay.

  • Za'Darius Smith Lands On Injured Reserve

    Green Bay Packers linebacker Za'Darius Smith (back) is heading to Injured Reserve on Friday. Although Smith was able to play in the Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints, his back has been bothering him since the start of training camp, and he played in just 29 percent of the defensive snaps in the season opener. The 29-year-old will miss at least the next three weeks. In his absence, Rashan Gary and Preston Smith will be asked to step up in the pass-rush department for the Packers. Losing your best pass-rusher is never a good thing, but the Packers defense/special teams is on the streaming radar in Week 2 on Monday night against a pretty bad Detroit Lions offense.

  • Can Robert Tonyan Return To Form In Week 2?

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan will try and shake off a poor performance Week 1 against the Saints this Sunday against the Lions. Tonyan caught only two passes for eight yards last week but, to be fair, no one on the Packers experienced success. Roll the calendar forward one week and now the Packers get a prime chance to bounce back against a bad Lions defense. Tonyan posted only 61 combined yards against Detroit last season but caught a touchdown in both games. Tonyan will need a touchdown to post TE1 numbers in Week 2.

  • A.J. Dillon Could Find Success As Backup

    Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon should see more chances for success in Week 2 against the Lions. Dillon saw only four carries for 19 yards in the team's dismal offensive effort Week 1 against the Saints. But brighter days are ahead against a Lions defense that allowed the most fantasy points to opposing runners last season. Teammate Aaron Jones is the clear-cut RB1 in the team's offense but the coaching staff thinks Dillon can have some success as well. Despite the strong matchup, Dillon is not ready for starting lineups but needs to be rostered and stashed in all fantasy formats.

  • Aaron Jones Gets Tasty Lions Matchup

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will have an excellent chance to post RB1 numbers in Week 2 against the Lions. Jones was held to 22 total yards Week 1 and saw only five carries from the backfield as the Packers were destroyed by the Saints. But the Lions defense may be the perfect elixir to get back on track as Detroit allowed the most fantasy points to running backs last season. Jones specifically enjoyed playing the Lions in 2020, posting 236 total yards with three touchdowns in Week 2 then adding 75 total yards in Week 14. Jones is in a great position to bounce back this Sunday.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling Will Have WR4/5 Week 2 Value

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling will have an opportunity to bounce back in Week 2 against the Lions. After a fantastic training camp, Valdes-Scantling was held to three catches for 17 yards in a dismal team effort against the Saints last week. But the Packers matchup against the Lions could be just what the doctor ordered as the Lions were ripped up in Week 1 by the 49ers and allowed the third most fantasy points to opposing receivers last season. Valdes-Scantling will be tough to trust as a fantasy starter in standard formats but did catch six passes for 85 yards with one touchdown against the Lions in Week 14 last season.

  • Allen Lazard Looking To Get Back On Track In Week 2

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard will try and put his Week 1 performance behind him when the team lines up against the Lions in Week 2. Lazard was held to only two catches for 16 yards against the Saints but will face a very shaky Lions secondary. The Lions surrendered 34 offensive points to the 49ers last week and last season surrendered the third most fantasy points to opposing receivers. The Packers will be on a mission to get their start back on track and Lazard could be the beneficiary. Lazard should be viewed as a WR4 option on fantasy rosters for Week 2.

  • Davante Adams Set Up For Monster Week 2

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will have a very favorable matchup Week 2 against the Lions. Adams posted only five catches for 56 yards in Week 1 but will go up against a Lions secondary already in disarray with cornerback Jeff Okudah out for the season. The Lions allowed the third most fantasy points to receivers last season and allowed 19 total touchdowns to the position. Adams was quiet in his first game against the Lions last season but went on to rip them up for seven catches with 115 yards and one touchdown in Week 14. Adams is an easy fantasy call to start in Week 2.

  • Aaron Rodgers Primed For Bounce-Back Performance

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will have the perfect opportunity to put the team's porous Week 1 behind them against the Lions in Week 2. Detroit's defense was ripped up for 41 points in Week 1 against the 49ers and prized cornerback prospect Jeff Okudah is now out for the season with a torn achilles. Rodgers played terribly against the Saints to open the season but now will face a Lions defense that allowed the most fantasy points to opposing passers last season. The Lions allowed 38 passing touchdowns in 2020 and Rodgers gashed them for 530 yards, one rushing touchdown and five passing touchdowns in two games against them last season. The reigning MVP is set up for a huge game in Week 2.

  • Za'Darius Smith Active For Week 1

    Green Bay Packers linebacker Za'Darius Smith (back) is active for the Week 1 season opener against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Smith was listed as questionable heading into the season opener. The 29-year-old pass-rusher entered training camp on the Non-Football Injury list with a back issue that kept him out of the entire preseason, but he's good to go to begin the regular season. He won't be a smart choice for IDP starting lineups, but his presence is good news for the Packers defense as they look to stop the Saints. New Saints starting quarterback Jameis Winston led the league in interceptions a few seasons ago, so the Green Bay defensive unit is in play as a low-end starting unit in Week 1.

  • Davante Adams Won't Have Contract Extension By Week 1

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams said: "no, no chance" on the chances of getting a contract extension before the season opener. The Packers reportedly will continue contract extensions with the 28-year-old during the regular season, but it's unlikely to happen before Week 1. Adams hauled in 115 catches for 1,374 yards and 18 touchdowns over 14 games in 2020. The Packers star wideout is seeking around $20M plus annually. With or without a new contract, Adams should once again finish as one of the top wide receivers in fantasy in 2021.

  • Za'Darius Smith In Danger Of Missing Week 1?

    Green Bay Packers linebacker Za'Darius Smith (back) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, and his status could be in question for the regular season opener this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Smith spent most of training camp on the Non-Football Injury list with a back problem, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise if the Packers held him out this weekend. The good news is that the 29-year-old is practicing, but fantasy managers in IDP leagues should steer clear of him if he does take the field against New Orleans. Those in IDP setups should take a wait-and-see approach with Smith until he proves he's fully healthy for the 2021 season. Through two seasons in Green Bay, he has 107 tackles, 26 sacks, five forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 32 games.
