Packers WR Christian Watson (back) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. He’ll be ready for his usual role in that one but is tough to like as more than a WR4 in a struggling Green Bay passing game.

Packers WR Christian Watson (back) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to play vs. the Steelers this weekend. Watson is tough to trust as more than a WR4 in a struggling Packers passing game. He's totaled just seven catches for 97 yards over the last three weeks.

Packers WR Christian Watson was not diagnosed with a concussion after exiting in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams, HC Matt LaFleur said Monday. "We're still following it closely just to make sure," LaFleur added. He also said that the chest and back injuries that were reported on Sunday are not a concern. It sounds like Watson should be available for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers, but we'll keep tabs on him throughout the week.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave notched his first career TD in Week 9. The rookie’s score resulted from a well-designed play and marked one of two 20+ yard gains. In total, Musgrave led the Packers with 51 yards on a 15.3% target share (tied for second-highest on Green Bay). Week 10 brings a matchup with a Steelers squad that might remain without S Minkah Fitzpatrick. After that comes a pair of favorable draws vs. the Chargers and Lions.

Packers WR Christian Watson managed only 1 catch for 37 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. That was a sweet leaping grab deep downfield. Watson nearly added a downfield TD, but the pass arrived underthrown. The young WR exited this one banged up with chest and back injuries. He was also checked for a concussion, but HC Matt LaFleur said the team is confident he avoided a head injury. We'll check his practice participation ahead of Sunday's meeting with a beatable Pittsburgh secondary. After that comes another favorable opponent in the Chargers.

Packers WR Christian Watson left late in Sunday's game vs. the Rams with chest and back injuries. He was also evaluated for a concussion, the team announced. We'll look for an update on Watson's status.

Packers LB Quay Walker (groin) and S Rudy Ford (calf) are inactive for today's game against the Rams. LB Isaiah McDuffie and S Dallin Leavitt look like the next players up. Neither should be in the IDP plans for most fantasy teams, though. Check our updated IDP rankings for replacement options if you're in need.

Packers S Rudy Ford is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams with a calf injury. The issue arose in Thursday's practice, and then he sat out Friday's workout. That bodes ill for his chances of playing Sunday. Dallin Leavitt looks like the next guy up if Ford can't go.

Packers LB Quay Walker missed practice Friday -- his first day on the injury report all week -- and is now questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams with a groin injury. HC Matt LaFleur said Walker "came in feeling tight today." We'll see about his status Sunday. Isaiah McDuffie has been the third LB up so far.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs recorded 15 carries for 61 rushing yards and a TD in Week 8’s loss vs. the Lions. He also secured 2 of 4 targets for a team-leading 27 receiving yards in the contest. Unfortunately, Jacobs is the only Raider who eclipsed 20 receiving yards and one of only three players to catch more than one pass on Monday night. In fact, QB Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t complete a pass to a WR until the second half of the game. Both WR Jakobi Meyers and Davante Adams were held to one reception apiece, unable to bring anything to the table for fantasy managers. Next week’s matchup vs. the Giants should yield better results, though the current state of the Raiders' offense is deeply concerning.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs caught the team's lone TD in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, one of just 4 receptions for 18 yards. That marked a particularly inefficient performance for a team-high 9 targets. That makes 5 TD receptions on the season -- at an 18.5% TD rate -- and still just two games with more than 30 receiving yards. You should sell Doubs any time you encounter an opportunity.

Packers WR Christian Watson caught just three of 8 targets in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He produced a mere 33 yards, ranking third on the team. Watson has now caught just 11 of 24 targets through four appearances, an ugly 45.8% catch rate. The good news is that he didn't miss time after hurting a knee late in Week 7. The bad news: QB Jordan Love appears likely to limit Watson's upside going forward. Next week holds a negative scoring matchup with the Rams, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. After that, though, come three straight positive matchups for WR scoring.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it’s tough to believe that Musgrave will be anywhere close to 100% for this one. He’s not a recommended TE1 play.

Packers WR Christian Watson (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. The knee injury Watson suffered last week doesn’t look like a concern. QB Jordan Love’s play is.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Vikings. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the previous two days. Musgrave admitted that he was still in a walking boot as of Thursday morning. Even if he ends up playing on Sunday, you should look elsewhere for your fantasy TE.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave (ankle) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Vikings this weekend, but we'll see how Musgrave is listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Packers WR Christian Watson (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He was knocked out late in last week's loss to the Broncos with a knee injury but will evidently be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. The rookie was unable to return to last week's loss to the Broncos and is in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. We'll see if Musgrave is able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Packers WR Christian Watson didn't sound overly concerned about the right knee injury he suffered near the end of Sunday's loss to the Broncos. “Everything looked good on the scans and whatnot,” Watson said on Monday. “Obviously, I’m just trying to get the initial pain and stuff out of there and I think I’ll be good to go.” It sounds like Watson has a chance to play vs. the Vikings this weekend. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Packers WR Christian Watson hurt his right knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He made it off the field under his own power but collapsed on the sidelines in obvious pain. We'll update his status when we know more.
