  • Packers Defense Has Juicy Matchup With Bears

    We still don't know who the Chicago Bears will start at quarterback between Nick Foles (hip) and Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) -- Foles didn't practice on Wednesday but Trubisky practiced in full -- but either way, the Packers Defense will be a strong start in all fantasy formats in Week 12. The Bears seem to be leaning towards Trubisky, who hasn't started since Week 3 and was benched for Foles in the same game. Chicago's offense ranks 31st in the NFL in total offense and scoring and 25th in passing, having failed to score more than 23 points in a game since Week 3. Both Foles and Trubisky have struggled under center in this offense in 2020, but Trubisky could give desperate managers in superflex leagues a bit more upside because of his rushing ability if he starts.

  • Robert Tonyan's Role Could Expand Against Bears

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan could factor heavily in the team's passing game against the Bears in Week 12. Tonyan found the end zone for the first time since Week 4 and caught five passes for 44 yards last week. He will go up against a Bears Defense that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, including six touchdowns to the position this season. Tonyan may not post top-five fantasy numbers among tight ends in Week 12 but has a solid floor to work with as the Bears have allowed 11 different tight ends to post six or more fantasy points against them.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling A Dicey Play In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling will go up against a tough Bears Defense in Week 12. Valdes-Scantling has been wildly inconsistent this season but came down with a huge 47-yard catch to help tie the game at the end of regulation last week and is two games removed from a 149-yard performance. But he will face a Bears defense that is allowing the third fewest fantasy points to receivers this season and have allowed only five touchdowns to the position. The Bears certainly can be expected to key in on star teammate Davante Adams, so Valdes-Scantling could see some extra targets in single coverage. But the Bears defense is talented enough to make fantasy teams pause before they insert Valdes-Scantling into lineups. There should be sturdier options out there as Valdes-Scantling will rank no higher than a WR5/6 option in Week 12.

  • Davante Adams To Face Stingy Bears Secondary In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will go up against a Bears secondary that is allowing the third fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers this season. The matchup is tough but nothing seems to stop Adams these days. The 28-year-old is one of the hottest fantasy players in the game right now, posting 45 receptions for 594 yards and eight touchdowns over his last five games. Adams is averaging 11.1 targets a game for the season and will face a Bears Defense that has allowed five touchdowns to receivers all season. The matchup may seem daunting, but Adams needs to be active in all starting lineups across all fantasy formats for Week 12.

  • Aaron Jones To Face Stout Bears D In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will have an unfavorable tilt against a talented Bears Defense in Week 12. Jones heads into the game with 795 all-purpose yards with eight total touchdowns on the season but will face a Bears defense that is allowing the ninth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Chicago has allowed only two rushing touchdowns since Week 4 and have held down elite runners like Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara and Derrick Henry in recent weeks. Jones' numbers have dipped a touch recently and could struggle to post top-10 numbers among running backs in Week 12.

  • Aaron Rodgers Has Tough Task Against Rival Bears

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will take on a Bears Defense that is allowing the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing passers this season. Rodgers is having a fantastic season, throwing for 280+ passing yards in seven of his last eight games and has 23 touchdowns during that span. The veteran passer is having an MVP-caliber campaign but will have a tough test in Week 12. The Bears defense has not allowed a 20+-point fantasy game to a quarterback all season and have allowed 12 passing touchdowns all season. Rodgers has plenty of experience playing the Bears over the years and, while he needs to be in starting lineups across all fantasy formats, Rodgers numbers could be suppressed in Week 12.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling Registers 55 Yards Against Colts

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught three passes for 55 yards in the Packers 34-31 loss to the Colts in overtime. Of the six targets Valdes-Scantling saw in the game, none was more important than a 47-yard catch at midfield to help set up a game-tying field goal at the end of regulation. The 26-year-old has been wildly inconsistent this season but now has 257 receiving yards over his last three games with three touchdowns. Valdes-Scantling will be a dicey WR5 option in Week 12 against a stingy Bears secondary.

  • Robert Tonyan Catches Touchdown In OT Loss

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan caught five passes for 44 yards and one touchdown in the Packers 34-31 overtime loss to the Colts in Week 12. The Packers got on the board thanks to Tonyan's 25-yard touchdown catch, his sixth touchdown of the season. The tight end has been a fine source of touchdowns at the tight end position but his 44 yards in this game eclipsed his output over the last two games. Tonyan could have fringe fantasy value as a touchdown-dependent option next week against the Bears.

  • Aaron Jones Scores Eighth Touchdown Of Season In Week 11

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones carried the ball 10 times for 41 yards, one touchdown and added four receptions for 30 yards in the Packers Week 11 loss to the Colts. Jones punched in his sixth rushing touchdown, his eighth overall, in the second quarter to put the Packers up, at the time, 14-7. Green Bay would go on to blow a 14-point lead and ditched the running game in a furious final quarter of regulation. Jones, however, continues to produce even when his opportunities are being capped by a pass-heavy offense. Jones will have an unfavorable matchup next week against a stout Bears Defense in Week 12.

  • Davante Adams Extends Touchdown Streak Against Colts

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams caught seven passes for 106 yards and one touchdown in the Packers 34-31 overtime loss to the Colts in Week 11. Water is wet and Adams catches touchdowns as the star receiver now has a score in each of his last five games. During that span, Adams has 45 receptions for 594 yards and eight touchdowns. The elite receiver will have, however, a tough tilt next week against a talented Bears Defense.

  • Aaron Rodgers Throws Three Touchdowns In OT Loss

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 27-of-38 passes for 311 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the team's 34-31 overtime loss to the Colts in Week 12. Aside from the interception, it was another vintage Rodgers performance. The Packers blew a 14-point lead but the veteran passer made some huge plays to take it to overtime. Backed up in his own end zone, Rodgers dropped a 47-yard bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scantling in the final minutes of regulation to set up a game-tying field goal. Rodgers now has 300+ passing yards in each of his last three games with nine touchdowns in that span. Rodgers will be a fringe QB1 next week against a tough Bears Defense.

  • Allen Lazard Expected To Make His Return

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard (core) is expected to make his return to the field in Week 11 against the Colts. Lazard has missed the last six games after having core muscle surgery, though it's likely that he'll be on a pitch count. The 24-year-old had a breakout performance back in Week 3, compiling 146 yards and a score. However, fantasy managers should stay away from Lazard if possible, given the injury and the matchup against Indianapolis' 2nd-ranked pass defense. Look at him as a risky WR4 this week.

  • Davante Adams All Set To Play Sunday Versus Colts

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (ankle) has no injury designation for Sunday's contest versus the Colts, paving the way for him to take the field against a stout defensive unit. Adams is on pace for a historic fantasy season, having hauled in seven TD receptions in his past four games en route to leading the league in receiving TDs (nine) and yards per game (105.9). While Adams should remain among the game's elite in terms of production, his DFS price tag may be particularly prohibitive in Week 11 due to the potential return of Allen Lazard (core) to the Packers' receiving corps and the stingy nature of the Colts Defense as it pertains to allowing offensive production. Adams is a definite must-start in all season-long formats, but will carry considerable risk in the DFS market.

  • Davante Adams In Danger Of Missing Week 11?

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (ankle) missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday with an ankle injury. Two missed practices to start the week is never a good sign for any player, especially one with Green Bay, as their medical staff is typically one of the most cautious in the league. Adams will need to at least get in a limited practice on Friday to give him a shot at playing in Week 11 against the Colts. The good news is that Allen Lazard (core) is expected to return to action for the first time since Week 3, so he, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown would have much bigger roles if Adams isn't able to play. Adams, the No. 2 receiver in PPR this year, would be a huge loss for fantasy owners. Check back on Friday for his official status against the Colts.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling Hard To Trust In Week 11

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling will have a tough matchup in Week 11 against a Colts Defense that is allowing the seventh fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers this season. Valdez-Scantling came up huge last week, posting 149 receiving yards and now has three touchdowns over his last two games played. But it simply will be hard to trust the 26-year-old against a Colts defense that has allowed only two touchdowns to receivers since Week 5. The smart money should be on the Packers leaning on stars Davante Adams and Aaron Jones in crucial situations, making Valdez-Scantling a risky bet to produce in Week 11.

  • Aaron Jones To Face Stout Colts Defense In Week 11

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones will have a tough task producing in Week 11 against a Colts Defense that is allowing the third fewest fantasy points to opposing backs. Jones opened the season with touchdowns in each of his first five games but has gone scoreless for two games in a row. The Colts have allowed only five rushing touchdowns all season and only one opposing back has posted more than 100 total yards against them. Despite the tough tilt, Jones could also become a threat in the passing game and seven of his 12 touchdowns this season have come in the air. Jones will carry backend RB1 value against the Colts in Week 11.

  • Aaron Rodgers To Have Toughest Test Against Colts

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will go up against a Colts Defense that is allowing the fewest fantasy points to opposing passers this season. The Colts have allowed only two quarterbacks to post 20+ fantasy points against them and only 11 passing touchdowns through 10 games. The matchup is stout but Rodgers is having an MVP-type season, throwing 13 touchdowns over his last four games. He has thrown multiple touchdowns in every game this season except one and, despite the tough tilt against the Colts, needs to be in all fantasy lineups in Week 11.

  • Packers Activate Allen Lazard From Injured Reserve

    The Green Bay Packers activated wide receiver Allen Lazard (core) from Injured Reserve on Tuesday, an indication that he'll play in Week 11 against the Colts. Lazard underwent surgery in early October to fix a core muscle injury. It's great news for both the Packers and fantasy managers, as Lazard went off for six catches, 146 yards and a touchdown against the Saints in Week 3 before having surgery. The 24-year-old has scored in two of his three games this year, but he'll be a risky fantasy play this week in his first game back, especially going up against a Colts Defense that has been stingy against opposing receivers this year. Temper expectations for Lazard if he makes his return this weekend, as the Packers could also limit his snap total. If Lazard is on the waiver wire in your league, scoop him up immediately.

  • Allen Lazard Nears Return From Injured Reserve

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard (abdominal) has until Wednesday to be activated from Injured Reserve, a deadline that is "probably pretty promising" that he'll meet, per Packers head coach Matt LaFleur. Lazard has been out of the mix since Week 3, having made a strong impression in his final game before the injury by hauling in six receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown. While his matchup against a stout Colts Defense this Sunday doesn't portend to immediate success on paper, he should slot in as a frequent target of quarterbackAaron Rodgers, potentially putting a dent in the appeal of Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantlingand Equanimeous St. Brown. Fantasy managers will want to check back to confirm that Lazard does get officially activated, although his status for Sunday's contest is likely to remain murky until later in the week.

  • Packers Sign David Bakhtiari To Record Extension

    The Green Bay Packers signed All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari to a four-year contract extension worth up to $105.5 million on Sunday, according to a source. It makes Bakhtiari the highest-paid offensive lineman in NFL history. The base value of the deal is $103.5 million with another $2 million in incentives and a $30 million signing bonus. The total cash-flow amount is $37.052 million in the first year and $64.5 million in the first three years. The new-money average of $23 million is a record for an offensive lineman. The 29-year-old was a fourth-round pick in 2013, and he's been either a first- or second-team All-Pro in each of the last four years. It's great news for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who should have Bakhtiari protecting his blind side for however long he remains the QB.

  • Davante Adams Has Rollercoaster Performance

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams caught eight passes for 66 yards and one touchdown in the Packers 24-20 win over the Jaguars in Week 10. Adams brought a little bit of everything to the table in this game. He moved the chains early with some nice receptions, lost a fumble in the second quarter, got injured in the third quarter and then returned to action to score his ninth touchdown of the season. His ninth score now is tied for most touchdown receptions in the NFL and will remain a surefire WR1 choice, if healthy, next week against the Colts in Week 11.

  • Aaron Rodgers Passes For 325 Yards In Close Win

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 24-of-34 passes for 325 yards, two touchdowns and one interceptions in the Packers 24-20 win over the Jaguars. It was an uneven performance for Rodgers and the Packers offense but the unit capitalized on enough opportunities to secure the victory. Rodgers got the offense on the board with a strike to receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 78-yard touchdown. Rodgers was inaccurate and careless with the football at times but was able to find his favorite target Davante Adams in the end zone in the second half to lock down the win. Rodgers and the Packers offense will have a tough matchup next week against the Colts.

  • David Bakhtiari Signs Four-Year Extension

    Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari has agreed to a four-year extension with the team that is worth up to $105.5 million. There's also a $30 million signing bonus on the contract, which is a record for an offensive lineman. Bakhtiari is in his eighth NFL season and was a Pro Bowl selection last year. He is a key component to keeping Aaron Rodgers well-protected and Rodgers was quick to sing Bakhtiari's praises after the extension was announced.

  • Davante Adams Returns And Instantly Scores

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (leg) was taken into the medical tent to have his leg looked at in the third quarter. He spent a few offensive drives on the sidelines before returning to the game. He came back into the game early in the fourth quarter and shortly after, he scored his ninth touchdown of the season. He should be able to finish the game as the Packers are in the midst of a close one with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Davante Adams Being Looked At By Training Staff

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (leg) was off the field for a few offensive plays midway through the third quarter in Week 10. He was taken into the medical tent while being looked at by trainers. Adams had seven catches for 60 yards on 11 targets before heading into the medical tent. His return should be considered questionable at this point. While he's out, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Robert Tonyan should see additional targets.

  • Tyler Ervin Ruled Out In Week 10

    Green Bay Packers running back Tyler Ervin (ribs) has been ruled out of Sunday's Week 10 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ervin has been developing into a solid receiving threat for the Packers, though he hasn't yet reached the point where he holds much fantasy relevance. Green Bay will continue to heavily use Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.

  • Robert Tonyan Active For Week 10

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan (ankle) will play in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tonyan has had a strong 2020 campaign even if his production has dropped off lately. He's a high-end TE2 play, but his ceiling is limited by the weather in Green Bay and how much this Packers team might lean on the running game.

  • Packers Defense Getting Key Linebacker Back

    The Green Bay Packers activated linebacker Christian Kirksey (shoulder) from Injured Reserve on Saturday and placed tight end John Lovett on IR in a corresponding move. Kirksey has been out since injuring his shoulder in Week 3, and his return will be a big boost for the middle of the Packers Defense in an excellent matchup against the Jaguars and rookie quarterback Jake Luton in Week 10. Kirksey had 27 tackles (18 solo) in his three games before going on IR, and he can be a useful piece for fantasy managers in IDP leagues down the stretch. Consider the Packers defense a top-five fantasy unit against Jacksonville, especially with Kirksey back in the fold.
