Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The Packers have fired HC Mike McCarthy. It ends a 13-year stint in Green Bay. The team has underachieved recently, though -- especially considering they're quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers. Today's home loss to the Cardinals was the nail in the coffin. Joe Philbin will take over the interim HC. The move is unlikely to have a significant fantasy impact.

The forecast for today's Cardinals-Packers game calls for a 100% chance of snow and winds of 20-30 mph. Those are tough conditions for the passing games -- especially the Cardinals, who play their home games indoors. QB Josh Rosen shouldn't have been in your plans anyway, but WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk are shakier plays now. Aaron Rodgers looks like a lower-end QB1 in this spot. RB Aaron Jones and the Packers defense are elite fantasy plays.

The Packers have traded RB Ty Montgomery to the Ravens for a 2020 7th-round pick -- or, basically, a bag of balls. Montgomery, of course, just cost Green Bay a chance to come back and beat the Rams by fumbling on a kickoff return. He hasn't been a big part of the offense this year, averaging just 3.7 carries and 3.3 targets per game. His departure certainly doesn't hurt RB Aaron Jones' rest-of-season outlook, though. In Baltimore, Montgomery figures to step into a similar change-of-pace, pass-catching role. He'll steal a handful of looks from Alex Collins and Buck Allen but is unlikely to emerge as a fantasy asset.

The Packers rotated 3 RBs in Week 3, and it sounds like that'll remain the game plan going forward. "I really like the rotation of having all three guys because they’re distinctly different, but all three can play all three downs, and that says a lot," HC Mike McCarthy said. "We’ve never had this situation where you have three guys that can play three downs like that, so this will really help us moving forward." Jamaal Williams led the way with a 43% snap rate in last week's loss to the Redskins. Ty Montgomery was next at 29%, and Aaron Jones played 25% of the snaps. The touches went Montgomery 10, Williams 7 and Jones 7. There will be more work to go around when the Packers aren't playing from behind like they were in Week 3. But this committee might make all 3 guys tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

Packers RB Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Aaron Jones will be returning from his 2-game suspension as the #3 RB. "Jamaal [Williams] and Ty [Montgomery] have played good football," McCarthy said. "I know what Aaron gives us, but his role will be secondary. Jamaal and Ty will be in the first slot." This shouldn't come as a surprise and doesn't mean Jones can't quickly climb the depth chart. He's a strong bench stash but shouldn't be in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky believes the Packers might be ready to shift from a committee backfield to the "Jamaal Williams Show." Williams has run as Green Bay's clear lead back in the preseason so far. "He's really poised to have a big year," HC Mike McCarthy said this week. "Clearly without playing a game yet, I think we'll be talking about him at the end of the season as a second-year player that's made the jump ... Jamaal was a heckuva player last year for us as a rookie, and now he's just so comfortable. He's so consistent, and like most rookies that go through an offseason, he's had a chance to catch his breath." Ty Montgomery still figures to steal some passing-game work. And we'll see what Aaron Jones does after his 2-game suspension. But Williams is clearly the Packers RB to own in fantasy football right now -- especially with an ADP sitting in Round 8.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) returned to practice on Sunday. He ended up missing about 2 weeks. We'll see if he can avoid a setback and build some momentum in the next couple of preseason games. Jones will open the regular season on a 2-game suspension but is still capable of eventually emerging as Green Bay's lead ball-carrier. His recent ADP is sitting in the late 8th round.

Packers RB Aaron Jones has missed over a week of training camp with a hamstring injury. We haven't heard a timetable for his return from the Packers or the media. It's been a rough month for Jones, who was slapped with a 2-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy in early July. He's still capable of carving out a role when he returns in Week 3 -- but he obviously needs to get over this hammy issue first. Jones is overvalued at his current 8th-round ADP.

Packers RB Aaron Jones has been suspended 2 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. This is the result of his arrest last October for marijuana possession. Jones will be allowed to participate in training camp and the preseason but will miss Green Bay's first 2 games against the Bears and Vikings. The suspension gives RB Jamaal Williams a shot to grab the lead role and run with it. RB Ty Montgomery should also see significant action those first 2 games. Depending on how those 2 fare, Jones might struggle to get much playing time when he's reinstated for Week 3. We'll see what happens to his ADP, which is currently sitting in the 8th round, but he now looks like just a later-round flier.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is out for this weekend's game against the Lions. Jamaal Williams will serve as a feature back in a plus matchup vs. the league's 31st-ranked RB defense.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is "likely out" for Sunday's game against the Lions, HC Mike McCarthy said. That means a feature role for RB Jamaal Williams vs. the league's 31st-ranked RB defense.

Packers RB Aaron Jones was knocked out in the 1st half of Saturday's game against the Vikings with a knee injury. It's unclear if this is related to the MCL injury he suffered in mid-November. We'll look for an update.

11:12am EST 12/3/17

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is active for today's game against the Bucs. He ended up missing just 2 games with that MCL injury. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that RB Jamaal Williams will get “most of the work,” but that could change based on how both RBs are performing. Williams remains the better fantasy bet but is more of a risk/reward RB2 now. Jones is just a flier in his 1st game back.

The Packers expect RB Aaron Jones to play against the Buccaneers today after he missed the past 2 games with a knee sprain, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jamaal Williams, however, is "still expected to get most of the work." Jones has been the most explosive of Green Bay's RBs this year, though. We'd be surprised if he doesn't get a decent number of touches. Of course, it's tough to know just how healthy Jones is. We'd play Williams 1st among the 2. Beyond that, the values of both -- because of the unpredictable touch outlooks -- will be a bit of a crapshoot.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucs after a limited week of practice. That one kicks off at 1 pm ET, so we'll know Jones' status by noon. If active, both Jones and Jamaal Williams will be risk/reward RB3 options. If Jones is out, Williams will be a borderline RB1 as Green Bay's feature back.

Updating a previous item, Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Bucs. We'll see what he's able to do in the final 2 practices of the week.

Packers RB Aaron Jones was charged with speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system on October 1, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Jones has pleaded not guilty but reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana that morning when he was pulled over. No pot was found in the car. Jones' next court hearing isn't until February, so this shouldn't impact his availability the rest of this season. He, of course, is expected to miss at least a couple more games with his knee injury. Jones could certainly be facing a suspension come 2018, though. He was also arrested for DWI while at UTEP back in 2016.
