Packers QB Jordan Love had a nightmarish Monday night, completing 16 of 30 attempts for 182 passing yards with 3 INTs vs. the Raiders. He now leads the NFL with 6 INTs since Week 3. Whatever magic Green Bay’s offense had early in the season has seemed to rub off. As a unit, they only sustained two drives that extended beyond 30 yards in this contest. Next week’s matchup vs. the Broncos will give Love an opportunity to turn his fortunes around against one of the league’s worst defenses, but he’ll still be challenging to trust as a starter in 1QB leagues.

Packers LB Quay Walker left Monday night's game against the Raiders and has been ruled out. He'll get a well-timed bye in Week 6. We'll see about his outlook beyond that.

Packers CB Jaire Alexander (back) and S Rudy Ford (oblique) are active for tonight's game against the Raiders. Each guy entered the night questionable. CB Eric Stokes (foot) is not ready to return yet. The team elected not to activate him from the PUP list ahead of the game.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is officially inactive for tonight's game against the Raiders. He'll get a Week 6 bye to rest up that hamstring. RBs A.J. Dillon, Patrick Taylor, and Emanuel Wilson are active for Green Bay tonight. See our projections for the Packers backfield.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero now reports that Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) will be inactive for tonight's game vs. the Raiders. Green Bay has a Week 6 bye, so Jones will get two full weeks to get that hamstring right. RB A.J. Dillon becomes a slightly better fantasy option tonight with Jones out, but he totaled just 96 scoreless yards in two games without Jones earlier this season. We just updated the Week 5 projections for the Packers backfield.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero tweets that Packers RB Aaron Jones' status for tonight's game vs. the Raiders "remains up in the air" but adds that, "it sounds unlikely he’ll go." Jones returned from his hamstring injury last week but played just 20 snaps. He was limited in practice all this week and is listed as questionable. We'll get Green Bay's inactives around 7 pm ET. Jones' absence would leave the backfield to A.J. Dillon and Patrick Taylor. Dillon bombed in Jones' absence earlier this season and played only 10 more snaps than Taylor in Week 3.

Packers LB De'Vondre Campbell (ankle) is out for Monday night's game against the Raiders. That will leave Isaiah McDuffie to start in his place. McDuffie carries limited upside for IDP leagues. Green Bay also could be missing as many as three secondary starters. CB Jaire Alexander (back) and S Rudy Ford (oblique) are questionable after limited practice participation this week. CB Eric Stokes' questionable tag is more of a positive. He has yet to play this season, coming off mensicus and Lisfranc injuries in November that each required surgeries. If he plays, it'll likely be in a limited role. We'll check on all three DBs Monday. None is worth waiting for in your IDP lineup.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) was limited in practice all week but isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll play vs. the Raiders on Monday night and should be ready for a bigger workload than he got in his 2023 debut last week, when he played just 46% of Green Bay's offensive snaps.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Raiders. Jones returned from this hamstring injury last week but wound up totaling just six touches on a 35% snap rate. We are expecting him to play on Monday, but it's tough to count on Jones getting his usual workload.

Packers TE Luke Musgrave has cleared concussion protocol, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. The rookie will be back on the field for Monday night's game vs. the Raiders after suffering the head injury in the first half of Week 4. Musgrave totaled 15 targets over the first three games of the season and is a fringe TE1 play vs. Vegas' 26th-ranked TE defense.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur confirmed that RB Aaron Jones and WR Christian Watson were on snap counts in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. Jones played 35% of the snaps and Watson 46% in their first games back from hamstring injuries. LaFleur added that he's "hopeful" that both guys can have full workloads vs. the Raiders in Week 5. We'll track their participation levels in practice next week.

WR Romeo Doubs was the only thing working for the Packers in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. He easily led the team in targets (13), catches (9), and receiving yards (95). It's certainly worth noting that WR Christian Watson was limited to just 46% of the snaps in his return from a hamstring injury. But Doubs continues to flash a strong rapport with QB Jordan Love. The duo has now connected on 20 of 33 passes through four weeks, including 14 times over the last two. We're still expecting Watson to re-emerge as Green Bay's No. 1 WR, but it'll be a situation to monitor closely. Doubs gets a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders before a Week 6 bye.

Returning from his early-September hamstring injury, Packers WR Christian Watson played just 26 of 57 offensive snaps (45.6%) in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. He ran a pass route on 20 of 41 dropbacks (48.8%) -- fourth among Green Bay WRs, behind Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks. Fantasy owners who started Watson got a bit fortunate when he was left wide open for a one-yard TD in the third quarter. Watson's only other catch of the night came earlier on that drive: a 24-yarder on a deep crosser. The best news to come out of this one is that Watson seemingly avoided a setback with that hamstring. He now has a few extra days to get ready for a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders. Watson will be a risk/reward WR3 in that one until we see him back to a full allotment of snaps. The Packers have a bye in Week 6.

RB Aaron Jones, like the entire Packers offense, struggled to get going in Thursday night's loss to the Lions. Green Bay finished with only 53 plays and 10 RB carries, as they played from multiple scores behind for the final three quarters. Jones garnered five of those carries but could only grind out 18 yards. He was crunched for a four-yard loss on his only reception of the night. Jones wound up getting out-snapped 38 to 20 by backfield mate A.J. Dillon, but that was very likely due to Jones coming back from that hamstring injury and the scoreboard. The good news is that Jones seemingly avoided a setback. Expect him to be back in the lead role in a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders. It's a good bounce-back opportunity for Jones and the Packers.

QB Jordan Love and the Packers offense was abysmal for most of Thursday night's loss to the Lions. Love was under pressure throughout the game and rarely got into a rhythm. He headed into halftime with 50 yards, 0 TDs, and 1 INT on 6-of-13 passing. Love chucked it another 20 times in the second half, though, compiling 196 yards and a TD to a wide-open WR Christian Watson. Love added a nine-yard TD run on a QB draw to post another 20+ point fantasy outing. He's now topped 20 fantasy points in all four games to open the season, despite not playing particularly well. Love has completed just 56% of his passes at 6.8 yards per attempt. But he's thrown eight TDs and run for two more. That scoring rate will not hold, and Love will need to play much better in order to maintain this fantasy-scoring pace. He at least got WR Christian Watson and RB Aaron Jones back on Thursday night. But LT David Bakhtiari landed on IR with his knee trouble and has no timetable for a return. Love draws a plus Week 5 matchup vs. the Raiders before a Week 6 bye.

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.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Lions. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported this morning that Green Bay will be cautious with Watson in his 2023 debut. But we’re expecting to see him out there in most passing situations. See where Watson sits in the Week 4 WR Rankings.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Lions. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported this morning that Green Bay will be cautious with Jones’ workload in his first game back. But we’re projecting him to lead the backfield in touches tonight. See where Jones sits in the Week 4 RB Rankings.

Packers WR Christian Watson is expected to play for the first time this season tonight against the Lions. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Green Bay will "be careful" with Watson's workload, however. We'll watch for any further specifics ahead of kickoff, but we'll all likely be guessing at just how big a role Watson plays in his return from a multi-week hamstring injury. He sits in WR4 range of our Week 4 WR rankings. Watson presents upside from there, even if the Packers limit his snaps and targets. He looks fairly risky vs. the top 36, though. There's certainly room to decide how willing you are to take on Watson's risk vs. his big-play reward potential.

The Packers expect RB Aaron Jones to play tonight against the Lions, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. He adds that the team will "be careful" with Jones' workload. That adds some risk to putting Jones in your fantasy lineup. But we're not likely to know exactly what that means for his touch count. Check the Week 4 RB rankings and/or your Team Intel page for updates before setting your lineup. Ultimately, though, there will be some gut calls on how you want to weight Jones' risk-reward vs. your other option(s).
