Packers TE Luke Musgrave caught a team-high six passes for 49 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints. His 8 targets constituted a solid 18.2% share of QB Jordan Love's 44 pass attempts. Musgrave also accounted for 18.9% of the team's receiving yards. WR Romeo Doubs led the team with 12 targets and 73 yards. WR Jayden Reed ranked third with 7 targets and was the only other Packer to reach 50 yards. (He tallied 63.) Green Bay pass catchers get favorable matchups with Detroit and Las Vegas the next two games, ahead of a Week 6 bye.

Packers QB Jordan Love completed just 50% of his passes in Sunday's comeback win over the Saints. But he wound up with a productive fantasy line thanks to 39 yards and a TD rushing. Love threw for 259 yards, with 1 TD and 1 INT. He found WR Romeo Doubs (5-73 receiving on 12 targets) for the late score that took the lead. Love has completed less than 57% of his passes in every game so far but been fortunate with TDs. There's upside to matchups with the Lions and Raiders the next two weeks -- ahead of a Week 6 bye -- but also risk if the TDs don't favor him.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Saints. He got in two limited practices this week, but the team continues to play it safe with Watson. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 4. Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed will again serve as Green Bay’s top two WRs today.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Saints. He got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out on Thursday, which HC Matt LaFleur said was the plan for the week. We’ll look for further updates on Watson’s status and will get Green Bay’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. Watson will be a risk/reward WR3 in fantasy lineups if he suits up.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday, after being limited on Wednesday. HC Matt LaFleur said it was a planned day off, but it certainly casts some doubt on whether Watson will play vs. the Saints this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He returned to a limited practice for the first time since going down last Friday before missing the Falcons game. We're tentatively expecting Watson to play vs. the Saints this weekend but will keep tabs on his progress over the next few days.

The Ravens signed RB Kenyan Drake to the practice squad. He played 12 games for Baltimore last year, averaging a solid 4.4 yards per carry on 109 attempts. We'll see if Drake gets the nod over Melvin Gordon as Baltimore's No. 3 RB this weekend. For now, Drake is only worth stashing in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs finished Week 3 with 9 carries for -2 yards. Per Elias Sports, it's the first time since the merger a reigning rushing champ finished a game with negative rushing yards. His fantasy points turned out OK thanks to a 5-51 receiving line, aided by a big Raiders deficit. Ultimately, a Bills blowout win was always a real possibility. Jacobs should bounce back next Sunday night against a Pittsburgh squad minus DL Cam Heyward.

Packers rookie WR Jayden Reed saw a team-leading 8 targets in Week 2, hauling in 4 catches for 37 yards and a pair of TDs vs. the Falcons. Last week’s star, Romeo Doubs, only corralled 2 of his 3 targets for 30 yards in this contest. It’s tough to take a lot away from these first couple of games since WR Christian Watson has yet to make his season debut due to a hamstring injury. Even so, it appears as though the Packers’ passing game is fairly potent with QB Jordan Love under center. There’s reason to be excited about this group in Week 3 vs. the Saints. Watch out for practice reports in the coming days to see if Love will have his full arsenal of weapons available to him.

Packers RB A.J. Dillon posted 55 rushing yards on 15 carries in Week 2’s loss vs. the Falcons. He also added a single catch on his lone target for 8 yards. Green Bay was without starter Aaron Jones (hamstring) for this contest. Though Dillon didn’t have a massive scoring output, he seized 76.1% of the Packers’ RB touch opportunities on Sunday. Should Jones miss another game, fantasy managers can feel comfortable knowing that Dillon would likely be treated as a workhorse back again. Keep an eye on injury reports in the coming days to see if we’ll have Jones back for Week 3 vs. the Saints.

Packers QB Jordan Love completed 14 passes on 25 attempts for 151 yards with 3 TDs and no INTs in Sunday’s loss vs. the Falcons. He also added 23 yards rushing on a pair of carries in the contest. Without WR Christian Watson (hamstring) for the second week in a row, Love turned in another very efficient performance. Fantasy managers could be looking at a weekly streaming option in 1QB leagues if he continues to play at this pace. The likelihood of ranking Love as a top-12 option is relatively low, considering how little the Packers’ offense throws, but managers who roster him in superflex leagues ought to be thrilled. Love will be an intriguing name headed into Week 3 vs. the Saints.

Packers LB Quay Walker has cleared the concussion protocol and is active for today's game against the Falcons. We have added him back to the Week 2 LB rankings, in LB2 territory for most IDP formats.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, so a Week 3 return looks possible. Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed will be Green Bay’s top two WRs today.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is not expected to play vs. the Falcons today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Watson returned to a limited practice on Friday, seemingly setting him up for a Week 3 return. Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed will operate as Green Bay's top two WRs today.

Packers LB Quay Walker is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He managed limited practices Thursday and Friday but remains in the concussion protocol. That makes Walker likely to miss the game, though the questionable tag indicates there's some chance he gets cleared before kickoff. Expect Isaiah McDuffie to start in his place if Walker can't go. Atlanta's run game presents an upside tackle matchup.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, his first official practice of the season. We'd still be a little surprised if Watson played on Sunday, but we'll get Green Bay's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday. He's a long shot to play vs. the Falcons this weekend and should be on fantasy benches.

Packers LB Quay Walker missed practice Wednesday and is in the concussion protocol. That makes him unlikely to play Sunday against the Falcons, though we'll keep an eye on the second-year LB's status.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He was spotted doing some rehab work off to the side at the beginning of the session. But fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Watson returning for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) told reporters on Monday that he's not sure he'll be ready for Week 2. He at least said that he doesn't believe a trip to IR is necessary. He added that the hamstring injury is to the same right leg as last year but added, “they’re all a little different” and it’s “not the same thing, not in the same spot," per ESPN's Rob Demovsky. We'll track Watson's progress throughout the week.
