Packers WR Devin Funchess has opted out of the 2020 season. He looked like Allen Lazard's biggest competition for the #2 WR job. Now Lazard will just need to hold off Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and Equanimeous St. Brown. We'll see how the depth chart shakes out over the next month, but we're bumping Lazard up the WR rankings. Davante Adams, of course, is set to dominate targets in Green Bay again.
The Packers have hired Matt LaFleur as their new HC. The 39-year-old was a hot name as an OC candidate around this time last year after working under Sean McVay in Los Angeles in 2017. LaFleur's 1 season in Tennessee was underwhelming on paper, with the Titans finishing 25th in total yards and 27th in points. But he was dealt a bad hand at QB between an injured Marcus Mariota and Blaine Gabbert. That likely also played a part in Tennessee being the 2nd run-heaviest offense in the league and 10th slowest in situation-neutral pace. Hopefully LaFleur brings a more aggressive, up-tempo attack to Green Bay. Consider the hire a risk/reward proposition for Aaron Rodgers and Co.
Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) is inactive for today’s finale against the Lions. WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is also inactive. That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow as Green Bay’s outside receivers, with Randall Cobb in the slot.
Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week. Green Bay obviously has nothing to play for, but Adams needs 134 yards to break Jordy Nelson’s team record for single-season receiving yards. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. WR Randall Cobb (concussion), meanwhile, will return for Sunday’s finale. WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is listed as doubtful.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (concussion) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. Look for Marquez Valdes-Scantling to step into Cobb’s slot role, with Equanimeous St. Brown remaining on the outside opposite Davante Adams. The rookies are just DFS fliers.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 16. He didn’t practice all week and won’t play against the Jets on Sunday. That’ll leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown as Green Bay’s #2 and #3 WRs. The rookies are both just fantasy fliers.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through. If Cobb isn't cleared by Sunday, Marquez Valdes-Scantling will step in as Green Bay's slot receiver with Equanimeous St. Brown playing on the outside along with Davante Adams.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Seahawks. That again leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling as the clear #2 WR and an upside WR3 in fantasy lineups. Fellow rookie Equanimeous St. Brown will serve as the #3 WR.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) did not practice on Tuesday and will not travel with the team to Seattle, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. The team hasn't yet ruled Cobb out for Thursday night's game, but he's looking like a long shot. Marquez Valdes-Scantling should again serve as Green Bay's #2 WR with Equanimeous St. Brown as the #3.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Dolphins. With WR Geronimo Allison on IR, Green Bay is down to Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. He tweaked that hammy in Thursday’s practice but was at least able to get in a limited workout on Friday. We’d guess that Cobb will give it a go, but the 4:25 pm ET kickoff complicates the situation. We’ll look for an update on his status Sunday morning. Folks hoping to use Cobb can add Equanimeous St. Brown as insurance. The rookie would step in as Green Bay’s #3 WR if Cobb is out.
The Packers have placed WR Geronimo Allison on IR with his core muscle injury. He's not eligible to return until the postseason and can be dropped from all redraft rosters. Green Bay will move forward with Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Randall Cobb and Equanimeous St. Brown as its top 4 WRs. Adams will continue to dominate targets, while Valdes-Scantling and Cobb are WR3 options.
Packers WRs Geronimo Allison (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are officially inactive for tonight’s game against the 49ers. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantlng and Equanimeous St. Brown will serve as Green Bay’s #2 and #3 WRs, respectively.
ESPN's Lisa Salters reports that Packers WRs Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb are "likely to be inactive" for tonight's game against the 49ers with their hamstring injuries. We'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET. Their absences would again leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown as Green Bay's #2 and #3 WRs. MVS is a viable WR3 and ESB a WR4 flier.
Packers WR Davante Adams suffered a calf injury on Wednesday and will not practice on Thursday, HC Mike McCarthy announced. Ouch. WRs Geronimo Allison (concussion) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are already in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Lions. Now Adams looks iffy too. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Brown are the team's top 3 healthy WRs right now.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky considers Geronimo Allison the "best bet" to win the Packers' #3 WR job. Green Bay added 3 WRs in this year's draft -- J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling -- but Allison holds edges in NFL experience and chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. The 24-year-old has flashed in spots over the past 2 seasons, including lines of 4-91-1 and 6-122. Green Bay's #3 WR has finished among the top 50 in PPR points in just 3 of 10 seasons since Rodgers took over, so Allison is unlikely to be a standalone value. But an injury to Davante Adams or Randall Cobb would certainly change that.
The Packers added Notre Dame WR Equanimeous St. Brown in the 6th round. This is much later than he was projected to go, but it’s unclear what caused the slide. St. Brown emerged as QB DeShone Kizer’s top target in 2016, leading the Irish with 58 catches, 916 yards and 9 scores. But his numbers tumbled alongside the Notre Dame passing game this past season, with St. Brown finishing with a 33-515-4 line. He’s an intriguing prospect from a size and athleticism perspective: 6’5, 214 pounds with a 4.48-second 40 time and a 63rd percentile SPARQ score. The tape shows a fluid route runner with dangerous after-the-catch ability. But St. Brown doesn’t play to his size, losing far too often in contested situations. He lands in an intriguing spot with an elite QB and an opening at the #3 spot on the WR depth chart. Of course, Green Bay drafted WRs J’Mon Moore and Marquez Valdes-Scantling ahead of St. Brown.
