Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (finger) doesn't need surgery, according to head coach Matt LaFleur. Graham will 'be all right,' said LaFleur.
Huddle Up: Graham remains a fringe TE1 with the expectation of a full 16-game season.

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (thumb) isn't at practice Monday, Aug. 19, due to a thumb injury.
Huddle Up: The issue still isn't considered to be a major concern. Graham remains a low-end TE1.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to play Thursday, Aug. 22, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: The Packers don't seem concerned with forcing Rodgers into game action in new head coach Matt LaFleur's offense ahead of Week 1 of the regular season, but it would be nice for fantasy managers to get a better sense of how he works with the receiving corps. Rodgers' draft stock is lower than it has usually been in the past, but he shouldn't slip lower than the fifth quarterback off the board.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (back) is expected to participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 18. He missed the second preseason game because of back tightness.
Huddle Up: Rodgers should be fine moving forward and should be one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy leagues this season.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (back) was held out of the team's exhibition game against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Aug. 15, due to back tightness, and head coach Matt LaFleur said afterward it's not a 'necessity' to have Rodgers play at all in the preseason. 'I think we'd like to see him, but you're talking about a veteran quarterback that's played a lot of football,' LaFleur said via following Thursday's game. 'I don't think it's a necessity, but it's certainly something that we'd like to see.'
Huddle Up: There is much intrigue in seeing Rodgers operate in LaFleur's new offense, but Rodgers will be just fine if he can stay healthy, and in fact is primed for a bounce-back season after hitting a full-season career low with 4.2 touchdown pass percentage last season. He remains a high-level QB1.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday, Aug. 13, he plans to play his starters for 'a quarter or so' against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 15 in the second preseason. 'It'll be a good test for our first time running this offense in another stadium, on the road, against a really good defense,' QB Aaron Rodgers said after Tuesday's practice.
Huddle Up: The high-profile Packers offense is always flush with fantasy options when healthy so it'll be important to see how the receiving corps works Thursday. Keep a close eye on who is getting the playing time with Rodgers among Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow, Geronimo Allison, Equanimeous St. Brown and J'Mon Moore.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) participated in practice Saturday, Aug. 10.
Huddle Up: Jones is in line to become the Packers starting running back this season and should receive plenty of touches in games. He can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.
Posted 8/08/2019 6:08 am UTC
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham said he expects to be a bigger part of the offense under new head coach Matt LaFleur.
Huddle Up: Graham was a disappointment in his first year with the Packers, especially with his lack of production in the red zone. His best years are certainly behind him, but he still has Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball. Graham could improve enough to provide low-end TE1 production this year.
Posted 8/07/2019 11:08 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers RBs Aaron Jones (hamstring) and Jamaal Williams (hamstring) have missed six and nine straight days of practice, respectively. Tra Carson (neck) missed practice Tuesday, Aug. 6, leaving Keith Ford, Corey Grant, Darrin Hall and Dexter Williams as the only fully-healthy options.
Huddle Up: Jones and Williams don't appear in jeopardy of missing any regular-season action, but they're obviously worth monitoring. They'll cut into each other's fantasy upside when healthy but there should be enough work for both to be viable starting options, with Jones being the preferred selection in both standard and PPR formats.
Posted 8/01/2019 3:08 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is out of practice for the second straight day Thursday, Aug. 1.
Huddle Up: Jones is expected to see the lion's share of the work, and Jamaal Williams (hamstring) is also banged up. Jones is on the edge of the RB2-RB3 area, and he should stay there as long as the injury doesn't linger.
Posted 7/31/2019 4:07 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) remains out of practice Wednesday, July 31, for the fourth straight day with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Williams is a low-end running back to complete your roster and a handcuff to Aaron Jones. The more time he misses, the more he'll suffer to start the season.
Posted 7/30/2019 5:07 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers might sit out the team's Aug. 8 preseason opener, head coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday, July 30, because it will follow several days of joint practices with the Houston Texans. Those practices will allow Rodgers a chance to work against another team while wearing a red no-contact jersey.
Huddle Up: There is much anticipation in seeing Rodgers operate his new offense in a game, but there's a good chance that have to wait until Week 2 of the preseason. In the meantime, he remains an upper-level QB1 in fantasy.
Posted 7/28/2019 2:07 am UTC
Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (hamstring) did not practice Saturday, July 27.
Huddle Up: Williams is expected to be in some form of a committee with Aaron Jones to open the year. Jones is the more explosive back with the higher ceiling, but Williams should at least be a high-end handcuff who sees some on early downs.

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has 'really jumped out' since spring practices, according to QB Aaron Rodgers. 'There's a big difference between a guy who can time fast and play fast. And playing fast is where the confidence comes,' Rodgers told James Jones of NFL Network.
Huddle Up: Praise for the receiving corps has been flowing out of Green Bay camp most of the spring and summer, although it is always a bit more notable when it's coming from the quarterback. Valdes-Scantling seemed to get ignored by Rodgers late in the season after making an impact following the season-ending injury to Geronimo Allison, so it's definitely a good sign the second-year wideout is making strides in Rodgers' eyes. There is potential WR3 upside with Valdes-Scantling in 2019.
Posted 7/23/2019 9:07 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison told ESPN's Rob Demovsky that his main focus will be playing in the slot in 2019.
Huddle Up: Obviously, this news doesn't preclude Davante Adams or Marquez Valdes-Scantling from lining up inside on occasion, but it is a big deal for Allison in that he is 6-foot-3, 202-pound receiver who should be getting a fair amount of easy throws from Aaron Rodgers. If Allison locks down the slot as he suspects he will, he should have no problem being a serviceable WR3 for fantasy purposes.
Posted 7/15/2019 2:07 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling said he has been working out with retired WR Randy Moss four days a week to prepare of the upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling is in the mix to to be the No. 2 receiver in Green Bay, and if he ends up starting across from Davante Adams, he will immediately become a WR4 with upside.
Posted 7/02/2019 8:07 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison has a chance to be 'dangerous' in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense, according to WR Davante Adams. 'He's the guy who's been working a lot in the slot, and he's used to playing a little more outside, but this is making him a little more dynamic. I think Matt has really tested him or challenged him to widen it out so he can play multiple spots. . . . Him being able to move around right now and be healthy, be himself and just play, being able to have all those things, it's going to be dangerous,' Adams told the team's website.
Huddle Up: Aaron Rodgers has stated Marquez Valdes-Scantling had a fantastic spring and indicated he would like to throw to Adams more often (he had 169 targets in 2018). Trevor Davis has also reportedly taken a big step forward, according to LaFleur. In short, owners should pump the breaks on Green Bay receivers for now. One thing is for certain: Rodgers has proven he can make three receivers viable in fantasy. It's just a crapshoot as to whether Allison or Valdes-Scantling should be the second one selected in fantasy.
Posted 6/27/2019 4:06 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is preparing to get the team's running backs more involved in the passing game in 2019. 'Oh, I love it when we can get them the ball in the passing game,' LaFleur said to end minicamp earlier in June. 'That's just one more eligible (receiver) the defense has to focus on. When you talk about getting five guys out into a concept, it just opens up more space inside typically.'
Huddle Up: The Pack's top two backs, Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, combined for only 76 targets and 53 receptions last season, so look for those numbers to rise and Jones and Williams to get a bump or two in the PPR running back ranks.
Posted 6/14/2019 1:06 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison is 'likely slated as the slot man' in three-receiver sets, according to Rob Demovsky of
Huddle Up: Allison had a productive start to last season before suffering an injury, and while Marquez Valdes-Scantling may have the inside track on the No. 2 receiver job, the Green Bay passing attack could support three viable fantasy options. Consider Allison a WR4 with upside.
Posted 6/14/2019 1:06 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been lining up across from WR Davante Adams in all packages during minicamp.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Valdes-Scantling has the inside track to the No. 2 receiver job. It remains to be seen if he will take the role and run with it, but the upside that comes with being one of Aaron Rodgers' top targets makes him a WR4 candidate.
Posted 6/13/2019 6:06 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow caught two touchdowns during minicamp practice Tuesday, June 11, and earned a lot of praise from QB Aaron Rodgers, who talked about Kumerow's intelligence and consistency being in the right spots. Rodgers concluded by saying he was a 'big fan' of Kumerow.
Huddle Up: You have to take everything with a grain of salt during the offseason, but things are wide open outside of Davante Adams in Green Bay. While we've heard good things about Marquez Valdes- Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown (and even Trevor Davis), Kumerow was a favorite of No. 12 last preseason before an injury shelved him for much of 2018. We'll learn more once the preseason arrives, but Kumerow is a name to keep tabs on.
Posted 6/13/2019 1:06 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling feels confident he'll flourish in the team's new offense. 'It's built for my kind of player. I'm a vertical guy, I can stretch the field,' Valdes-Scantling said.
Huddle Up: Davante Adams is the go-to receiver, but there is plenty of opportunity for Valdes-Scantling to shine with Randall Cobb having moved on. His biggest challenger for targets will be Geronimo Allison, Equanimeous St. Brown and Trevor Davis. Whomever starts opposite Adams will be worth of WR4 or flex fantasy status.
Posted 6/06/2019 7:06 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams finished second in the league behind Julio Jones (170) with 169 targets last season. If QB Aaron Rodgers has his way in 2019, Adams will be even more involved. 'I'd like to throw to Davante more. He's that open. We've got to keep finding ways to get him the ball. 'I think Marquez (Valdes-Scantling) has had a fantastic spring and really stepped up as a guy who can be an every-down player, and then I expect a big bounce-back year from Jimmy (Graham). He's healthy, he's feeling good. This offense I think fits him and his body type, but I'm not going to shy away from throwing the ball to Davante,' Rodgers told ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Huddle Up: No one is going to fault Adams getting more looks, especially after he set career highs across the board with 111 catches, 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2018. He's finished with double-digit touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and is obviously the favorite target of the best quarterback in the game. If he can stay healthy, there's no reason why he can't repeat or exceed what he did last year in what should be a more creative offense under first-year coach Matt LaFleur.
Posted 6/03/2019 2:06 am UTC
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham said he is motivated to put his struggles from last year behind him. 'I know the player that I am, and I know I still have juice,' Graham said. 'Scoring in the red zone and being that big threat on third down. I mean, I've got to get back to that.'
Huddle Up: Graham's first season in Green Bay was a big disappointment, but a new head coach and a new offense could provide a needed spark. Still, he should be viewed as a low-end TE1, at best, after last season.
Posted 4/11/2019 2:04 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said he hopes to receive some playing time at slot receiver under head coach Matt LaFleur because it could create some favorable matchups in the passing game for the team.
Huddle Up: Adams is one of the better receivers in the NFL and could improve on his stats in 2019 if he is not covered by the opponent's top cornerback as a slot receiver. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues next season.
Posted 4/09/2019 4:04 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told a Milwaukee radio station Monday, April 8, that he suffered a a tibial-plateau fracture and an MCL sprain in Week 1 last season.
Huddle Up: Rodgers wound up playing through the issue and didn't miss a start, but he was clearly bothered by the injury for the first half of the season and finished with a full-season personal-low 25 TD passes. In any case, Rodgers is due some better health fortune and a return to top-three fantasy QB status is certainly on the table with a new coach/fresh start also looming for the veteran QB this season.
Posted 3/28/2019 7:03 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, hamstring, adductor) said he is mentally and physically strong and feels good after missing 11 games last season. 'I think I'm making a good comeback and I feel confident in myself.'
Huddle Up: As it stands, Allison figures to be the Packers' No. 1 wide receiver with Randall Cobb out of the picture, although second-year wide receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown are chomping at the bit to break out. Nonetheless, Allison is in the WR3 conversation if he can avoid any setbacks.
Posted 2/28/2019 5:02 am UTC
Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham will be brought back in 2019. General manager Brian Gutekunst said Wednesday, Feb. 28 that he felt Graham had a productive year in 2018, and he is looking forward to what the veteran will do in 2019.
Huddle Up: Graham registered 55 catches and 636 yards with two scores over 16 games. His scores were way down from the 10 he posted in 2017. His average yards per catch (11.6) were up from a career-low 9.1 yards per reception in 2017, too. However, his fantasy value is at an all-time low, and he is now a borderline TE1/TE2 in most fantasy formats.
