NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) won't play against the Falcons today. It's a surprise after he played through the hammy issue last week and put in 3 limited practices this week. Cobb has averaged 12.3 targets over his last 3 games, so his absence is significant. WR/RB Ty Montgomery might see even more action in the short passing game. WRs Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and potentially Jeff Janis could also pick up some extra looks.

Packers WR Davante Adams is surprisingly active for tonight's game against the Bears, just 4 days after suffering a concussion. He's a low-end WR3. Adams' presence doesn't hurt WR Ty Montgomery much. He still figures to be involved in both the passing and running games.

The Packers listed WR Davante Adams (concussion) as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Bears. He got in a limited practice on Wednesday but still isn't a great bet to get full clearance in time for kickoff. WR Jeff Janis picked up snaps on the outside after Adams exited last week's game.

Packers WR Davante Adams has been diagnosed with a concussion and did not practice on Monday. He's a long shot to be cleared for Thursday night's game against the Bears. WR Ty Montgomery figures to be the biggest beneficiary and is on the WR3 radar in PPR leagues. WR Jeff Janis should also get a boost in playing time but can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Packers WR Davante Adams took a big hit in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He headed back to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy likes what he's seen from WR Davante Adams this summer. “Davante’s having a very good camp,” McCarthy said. “That’s what you see; he’s healthy and he’s taken a step." Beat writer reports via Twitter have been all over the map on Adams' training camp performance. He hauled in 2 balls for 37 yards in 21 snaps in Thursday night's 2nd preseason game. With Jeff Janis sidelined by a broken hand and Ty Montgomery still working his way back from ankle surgery, Adams is the heavy favorite to open the season as Green Bay's #3 WR. That alone makes him worth a look late in fantasy drafts.

Packers WR Jeff Janis will miss 4-6 weeks after undergoing finger surgery. Janis had screws put in the bones around his right index finger. Once a popular late-round pick, Janis is now undraftable in all leagues. Davante Adams looks poised for the #3 WR role.

Packers WR Jeff Janis suffered a fracture to at least 1 of the bones in his right hand, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN. The injury reportedly occurred in Wednesday’s practice. Janis has garnered mixed reviews as he battles for the #3 WR gig, but this injury could keep him off the field into the regular season. Davante Adams is the current favorite to play in 3-WR sets.

The Packers' initial depth chart lists WR Jeff Janis 3rd at his outside spot, behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. Jared Abbrederis, meanwhile, sits 2nd behind Randall Cobb at the other wideout. Janis' raw athleticism has made him a favorite sleeper of some in the fantasy football community the past couple of years, but this follows negative buzz on the player failing to improve his technique and alienating QB Aaron Rodgers. Hanging on to Janis in dynasty is fine, but don't count on a 2016 contribution. We'll see if he's in danger of missing the regular-season roster.

Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) was placed on active/PUP to begin training camp. Limited to only 6 games last season, the 2nd-year WR must return quickly to have a chance to win the #3 WR role. For now, Davante Adams and Jeff Janis are the frontrunners for that gig.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy likes what he's seen from WR Jared Abbrederis this offseason. "I think Jared's had his best offseason," McCarthy said. "I think his route running is exemplary for a young guy. His ability to recognize coverages, and his time clock, his breaking points, his ability to drop his weight -- just all the specifics and details and techniques of route running, I think he's exceptional. He just needs to continue to work on getting stronger. He plays the position technically and fundamentally at a very high level." Abbrederis has struggled with injuries -- a torn ACL in 2014 and a concussion last summer -- but stepped up to haul in 6 balls for 69 yards in Green Bay's 2 playoff games last year. He's in the mix for the #3 WR job this season, along with Jeff Janis, Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery.

Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) still isn't back to 100% and will be limited for the start of the offseason program this week.  He underwent surgery in late December after injuring his ankle in October and then suffering a couple of setbacks.  The team doesn't expect him to be fully cleared until the start of training camp.  Montgomery caught 15 of 19 targets for 136 yards and 2 scores in 6 outings last year.  He also carried 3 times for 14 yards and averaged 31.1 yards on 7 kick returns.  The 3rd-round pick is in the mix for the #3 WR job but needs to get healthy to beat out Jeff Janis and Davante Adams.

Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) is out for Saturday night's game against the Cardinals.  His sprained MCL is likely a multi-week injury.  Adams' absence leaves Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jared Abbrederis as Green Bay's top 3 WRs.  Cobb and Jones figure to struggle getting open on the outside, making slot-man Abbrederis a sneaky fantasy play.

Packers WR Davante Adams has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.  HC Mike McCarthy wouldn't rule Adams out on Tuesday, but Demovsky confirms that the 2nd-year wideout is unlikely to play against the Cardinals this weekend.  WR Jared Abbrederis will likely see the biggest increase in playing time.  WR Jeff Janis should also see extra snaps.

Packers WR Davante Adams left Sunday's win over Washington with a right knee injury. ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports that Adams avoided a "major" injury, and the WR told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Sunday, "I think I'll be fine." Adams looks iffy for Saturday's game at Arizona, however. His absence would mean more snaps for WR Jared Abbrederis, who caught 2 passes at Washington.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wants WR Jared Abbrederis' role to grow.  He played a season-high 27 snaps in Sunday's win over the Raiders, hauling in all 3 of his targets for 33 yards.  WR Davante Adams was inefficient again, turning 8 targets into 32 scoreless yards.  We'll see if Abbrederis starts to eat into Adams' playing time.  Neither guy is a Week 16 fantasy option.
