Packers TE Luke Musgrave (kidney) is active for today’s game vs. the Bears. It’ll be his first action since Week 11. It’s entirely unclear how snaps and routes will be divvied between Musgrave and TE Tucker Kraft, leaving both guys as shaky fantasy plays. If picking between the two, we’d use Kraft.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave (kidney) has been activated from IR, putting him in line to play vs. the Bears on Sunday. Musgrave has been out since Week 11. He was Green Bay's lead TE before going down, but it's unclear how snaps will be divvied between Musgrave and Tucker Kraft against the Bears. Neither guy is a safe fantasy play in Week 18.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave (kidney) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. He was limited in practice all week. HC Matt LaFleur said Thursday that Musgrave has a realistic chance to play this weekend. He’s been out since suffering a lacerated kidney back in Week 11 and wouldn't be a bankable Week 18 fantasy play. But Musgrave’s return would put a significant dent in TE Tucker Kraft's value.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Thursday that TE Luke Musgrave has a realistic chance to play vs. the Bears this weekend. Musgrave has been out since suffering a lacerated kidney back in Week 11. He's been limited in practice so far this week. We'll see how Musgrave is listed on the final injury report tomorrow. He wouldn't be a Week 18 fantasy option but would put a significant dent in TE Tucker Kraft's value.

Packers TE Tucker Kraft tallied 57 yards and a TD on 4 receptions in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. The game marked his second among the past three with 6 targets, his second straight with 4 receptions and more than 50 receiving yards, and the fourth straight game in which he led the team in routes. That all makes Kraft a solid option for Week 16, if Luke Musgrave isn't ready to return from his lacerated kidney. He's eligible to come off IR for Week 16, but we haven't yet seen an indication Green Bay expects Musgrave to play next week. We'll watch the situation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.

The Packers placed TE Luke Musgrave on IR with what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports is a lacerated kidney. Musgrave will miss at least the next four games, making Week 16 his earliest return date. The rookie can be dropped from redraft rosters. His absence gives fellow rookie TE Tucker Kraft a shot at lead duties. The elite athlete is worth adding in TE-premium fantasy leagues like the FFPC.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Tuesday that TE Luke Musgrave has a "significant" abdomen injury. LaFleur didn't give any other details but did say that Musgrave is currently in the hospital. He won't play vs. the Lions on Thanksgiving, and it sounds like Musgrave could miss time beyond that. We'll keep you updated on his status. Musgrave's absence on Thursday will leave Green Bay with TEs Tucker Kraft, Ben Sims, and Josiah Deguara. Kraft had already seen an expanded role the past two weeks and should lead the group in pass routes vs. Detroit. He'd be a desperation season-long play but is an intriguing flier on the Thanksgiving DFS slate. Kraft is a third-round rookie with a 96th-percentile Relative Athletic Score.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave sustained a concussion in the first half of Thursday night's game vs. the Lions and will not return. He at least has a few extra days to clear protocol before Week 5's meeting with the Raiders. Musgrave's absence leaves Green Bay with TEs Tucker Kraft and Josiah Deguara.

Matt Schneidman of The Athletic says he thinks Packers rookie Luke Musgrave "will be the TE1 by Week 1." Schneidman adds: "The Packers think he can be the true No. 1 pass-catching tight end that Robert Tonyan was at times but not consistently enough, someone like Jermichael Finley in his prime perhaps." The Packers reportedly hope Musgrave can develop into a player they can move around the formation as "almost a wide receiver." We like the long-term upside on the athletic rookie. For 2023, though, Musgrave sits low in TE3 territory in our rankings.

The Packers selected South Dakota State TE Tucker Kraft in Round 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft. Kraft missed most of this past season following ankle surgery. In 2021, he tallied 65-773-6 in 15 games, showing the skill set of a future NFL starter. His fantasy outlook isn’t clear in Green Bay, though, as the Packers selected Luke Musgrave earlier in the night. Kraft is off the redraft radar.
