Packers WRs Sammy Watkins (knee) and Christian Watson (concussion) are not listed on the final Week 10 injury report. They figure to operate as Green Bay’s #2 and #3 WRs vs. Dallas this weekend with WR Romeo Doubs (ankle) sidelined.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It looks like he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys, but Watkins would be a desperation fantasy play.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. WR Christian Watson (concussion) was a full participant, so he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. Green Bay will be without WR Romeo Doubs (ankle) for that one. WR Allen Lazard is the only bankable fantasy play in this struggling passing game.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Bills. That takes away the top option in a struggling passing game. Romeo Doubs and Sammy Watkins, who was limited in practice all week with a hamstring but isn’t listed on the final injury report, figure to serve as QB Aaron Rodgers’ top 2 WRs. WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is listed as questionable after 3 limited practices.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) conceded Thursday that he's unlikely to play vs. the Bills on Sunday night. Lazard told reporters that he heard "a snap, crackle and pop" in his shoulder near the end of the 3rd quarter of last week's game -- but that he doesn't expect to be out long. His absence this weekend figures to leave Sammy Watkins and Romeo Doubs as Green Bay's top 2 WRs. We'll see if WR Christian Watson can make it back from his hamstring injury.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) missed practice again on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Bills on Sunday night, but we'll see if Lazard is able to get back on the field tomorrow. WRs Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and Christian Watson (hamstring) remained limited on Thursday.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. He was knocked out of last week's game with this injury and is in danger of missing Sunday night's game vs. the Bills. We'll see if Lazard is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow. WRs Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and Christian Watson (hamstring) were limited Wednesday.

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.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Commanders. He just returned to practice this week after going down in late September. Watkins isn’t a viable Week 7 fantasy play, but his return adds a bit of risk to WR Romeo Doubs profile.

The Packers have activated WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) from IR. They have listed him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Commanders. We certainly wouldn't use Watkins in fantasy football lineups. We'll see about his role -- once he plays -- and any impact on WRs Romeo Doubs and Allen Lazard. Green Bay also placed WR Randall Cobb (ankle) on IR. Cobb says he expects to return this season.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) has been designated to return from IR and will be limited in Wednesday's practice, HC Matt LaFleur said. We'll see if Watkins is ready to play vs. the Commanders this weekend. He caught 6 of 7 targets on a 66% snap rate over the first 2 games of the season. We'd expect him to return as the #3 WR behind Allen Lazard and Romeo Doubs.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Monday that WR Randall Cobb's ankle injury is not season-ending but that he'll likely be out multiple weeks. His absence will leave WR Amari Rodgers as Green Bay's primary slot receiver. LaFleur did say that WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) might be ready to come off IR this week. But Allen Lazard and Romeo Doubs are the only Packers WRs worth rostering in fantasy.

The Packers have placed WR Sammy Watkins on IR with the hamstring injury that had already knocked him out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. That means he'll miss at least 3 more games beyond this week. Although it's likely to be a short stay on IR for Watkins, he's fine to drop in just about any fantasy football format. Allen Lazard, Romeo Doubs, Christian Watson and Randall Cobb rounded out Green Bay's most-used WRs in last Sunday night's win over the Bears. Cobb and Watson are questionable for this week after each missing the final 2 practices. Green Bay also elevated WR Juwan Winfree and RB Patrick Taylor from the practice squad on Saturday.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. It looks like he hurt his hamstring on Wednesday and didn't practice the next 2 days. An injured Watkins is not a must-stash on fantasy rosters.

Packers WRs Allen Lazard (ankle), Sammy Watkins (hamstring), Christian Watson (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (illness) all missed Thursday's practice. Lazard, Watson and Watkins were all limited on Wednesday, so it seems like this was a planned day off for guys that aren't quite at 100%. We'll know more when we get Green Bay's final injury report tomorrow.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero confirms that Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Vikings today. He's listed as doubtful after missing practice all week. Lazard's absence leaves Green Bay with WRs Sammy Watkins, Romeo Doubs, Randall Cobb and Christian Watson. Pelissero also reports that LT David Bakhtiari (knee) and RT Elgton Jenkins (pectoral/knee) will miss today's opener. It's a tough spot for QB Aaron Rodgers.
