Packers rookie WR Christian Watson scored for the 3rd straight game, delivering a 63-yard catch-and-run TD in Sunday night's loss to the Eagles. That powered a 4-110-1 receiving line on a team-leading 6 targets. Green Bay threw just 25 passes in a game that saw QB Aaron Rodgers leave early, so Watson accounted for a 24% share. RB Aaron Jones, RB AJ Dillon and WR Randall Cobb tied for 2nd with 4 targets apiece. Jones and Cobb caught the team's other 2 TD passes. WR Allen Lazard contributed just 2 receptions for 24 yards among 3 targets. TE Robert Tonyan caught all 3 of his targets for 20 yards.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed just 53.5% of his passes and tossed 3 INTs (2 in the red zone) in Sunday's loss at Detroit. He wound up compiling 291 yards on 23-of-43 passing, with 1 TD -- adding 40 rushing yards to salvage a decent fantasy day. But Rodgers struggled in what should have been an easy matchup. That bodes ill for a Week 10 clash with Dallas, which sports a much tougher pass D. WR Allen Lazard drew 10 targets, catching 4 for 87 yards and a TD. No other Packer drew more than 5 looks. TE Josiah Deguara led the team in receptions, catching all 5 of his looks for 41 yards. TE Robert Tonyan caught 3 balls for 29 yards among 4 targets. No other Packer caught more than 2 passes.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers entered the 4th quarter with just 74 passing yards in Sunday night's loss to the Bills, but added 129 and a TD to his totals in that quarter alone. Green Bay went run-heavy through most of the game, falling behind by 17. Rodgers then led that 4th-quarter scoring drive that ended with a 37-yard TD to rookie WR Samari Toure. Rodgers found rookie WR Romeo Doubs for an impressive catch in the end zone earlier in the game. TE Robert Tonyan led the Packers with 5 catches, totaling 35 yards. Green Bay gets a much more favorable matchup at Detroit in Week 9.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers managed only 194 yards on 23-of-35 passing in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. He found RB Aaron Jones for the team's only 2 offensive TDs. WR Allen Lazard was the only other Packer to catch more than 3 passes, before leaving with a shoulder injury. TE Robert Tonyan contributed 3-32 receiving on 4 targets. WR Sammy Watkins returned from IR (hamstring) to catch 2 passes for 36 yards among 4 targets. Rookie Romeo Doubs went catchless on 4 targets. Doubs finished as the clear playing-time leader, with Lazard leaving early and the team missing WRs Randall Cobb and Christian Watson. No member of this pass offense looks attractive for a Week 8 visit to Buffalo.

TE Robert Tonyan led the Packers in targets (12), receptions (10) and receiving yards (90) in Sunday's loss to the Jets. His 76% route rate also ranked 3rd among Green Bay players. Tonyan and the Packers now get 3 straight road dates, against Washington, Buffalo and Detroit.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan found the end zone in Sunday's OT win over the Patriots, catching 1 of Aaron Rodgers' 2 TD passes. That came on 1 of just 2 targets for the game, though. Tonyan continued to see his opportunities capped, running a route on 57% of Rodgers dropbacks. He'll need to improve on that to climb toward top-12 fantasy football lineup consideration.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (knee) is not listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He was limited in practice all week but is evidently set to play vs. the Vikings on Sunday -- 10-and-a-half months after tearing an ACL. Tonyan just returned to practice in mid-August, so it's unclear if he's ready for a full-time role just yet. Despite Green Bay's WR issues, we'd try not to use Tonyan in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Update: ESPN's Jeremy Fowler says Tonyan "will likely have a limited role" in the opener.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. His status for Sunday's opener vs. the Vikings remains uncertain -- but it at least looks like he's close to making it back from last October's torn ACL.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan returned to 11-on-11 work on Sunday for the 1st time since tearing his ACL last October. But HC Matt LaFleur was non-committal when asked Monday whether Tonyan will be ready for Week 1. "It's a little early to say that right now," LaFleur said. "That was his first action in team periods. We'll see how he responds." Tonyan shouldn't be in your early-season fantasy plans, but he's capable of emerging as an asset later on.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan was activated from the PUP list on Sunday. Coming back from an ACL tear, Tonyan will be limited in the short term to individual work and walkthroughs, per HC Matt LaFleur. We’d temper early-season expectations for the veteran TE.

Despite some early hope that TE Robert Tonyan's repaired ACL would be ready for the start of training camp, he remains on the PUP through the 1st 9 practices. And according to Packers Wire, the team has provided no update on when Tonyan will actually get back onto the field. He told the Bussin' With the Boys podcast last week that the knee "feels great." We'll see when that next step comes.

Tyler Davis led the Packers in "true" 1st-team TE reps in Friday's Family Night practice, according to SB Nation's Justin Mosqueda. Josiah Deguara got more total playing time (15 snaps to Davis' 13) but spent a significant chunk of that in RB positions. Davis, meanwhile, spent more combined time inline or in the slot than Marcedes Lewis and others. Robert Tonyan projects as the lead receiver at the position but is still on PUP as he works back from his ACL tear. Keep Davis on your radar, though, in case Tonyan's return is delayed into the regular season (or if you're playing preseason DFS).

The Packers unsurprisingly place TE Robert Tonyan on the training-camp PUP list Friday. Tonyan is working back from a mid-season ACL tear and is not a lock to be ready for Week 1. The team can activate him off the camp PUP at any point. Staying on the list into the regular season, however, would require Tonyan to miss at least 4 games. Tonyan missing camp time should give us a chance to see if there's anything behind the mild spring buzz for TE Tyler Davis.

Matt Schneidman of The Athletic writes that Packers TE Robert Tonyan “may not be ready to play Week 1.” Schneidman adds that he’d be surprised if Tonyan isn’t ready to play by Week 6. The veteran tore his ACL at the end of October, so he’ll be ~10.5 months removed from the injury come Week 1. Tonyan’s not a particularly desirable TE2, even if he’s ready for the opener.

Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com writes that the team feels “fine” about their TE situation. He notes that Robert Tonyan is making “significant progress” with ACL rehab. (Tonyan tore his ACL last October.) Interestingly, GM Brian Gutekunst shouted out TE Tyler Davis, a 2020 UDFA who played 121 snaps last season. “I think we might have found something there,” Gutekunst remarked. Tonyan, 28, posted 5 games with 10 or fewer yards prior to the injury. Don’t count on a major rebound.

The Packers re-signed TE Robert Tonyan to a 1-year deal. Tonyan is rehabbing a late-October ACL tear but should be ready for the start of the 2022 season. He came out of nowhere for a 52-586-11 line in 2020 but was sitting just 24th among TEs in PPR points through the first 7 weeks of last year. Tonyan has a shot to grab a larger target share this season with WR Davante Adams' departure.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan tore his left ACL in Thursday night's win over the Cardinals, his agent announced Friday. Tonyan will miss the rest of the season but has a good shot to be ready for the start of the 2022 campaign. His absence leaves the Packers with TEs Marcedes Lewis and Josiah Deguara. We'll monitor that situation, but neither guy is worth adding to fantasy rosters right now.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan hurt his left knee in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. He was in obvious pain but was at least able to get off the field under his own power. We'll update Tonyan's status when we know more.

Packers WR Allen Lazard has joined WR Davante Adams on the COVID list. Both guys are virtual locks to miss Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. We'll see if Green Bay loses anyone else for that one. The Packers are currently down to WRs Randall Cobb, Equanimeous St. Brown and Amari Rodgers on the active roster. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is eligible to come off IR. WRs Juwann Winfree and Chris Blair are on the practice squad. RB Aaron Jones and TE Robert Tonyan figure to play big roles in the passing game on Thursday night.
