Packers QB Aaron Rodgers struggled mightily in Week 6, posting 246 yards and 1 TD on 41 attempts. He tied a season-high with 4 sacks against a Jets team that entered with only 10 in 5 games. After the loss, Rodgers shared a desire to simplify the offense. Something has to change, as he enters Week 7 as the QB18. The Washington matchup is a positive one, but it's tough to put QB1-level faith in Rodgers right now.

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.

Packers WR Randall Cobb is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. X-rays came back clean, but Cobb is scheduled for additional testing on that ankle on Monday. If the high-ankle sprain is confirmed, he figures to miss 4+ weeks.

Packers WR Allen Lazard reached the end zone for the 4th time in 5 games in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Overall, he caught 4 of 9 targets for 76 yards and the score. It marked his 3rd straight game with at least 8 targets. Lazard and rookie Romeo Doubs also continued to easily lead the offense in routes. Doubs also saw 9 targets, catching 4 for just 21 yards.

Jets RB Breece Hall ran for 116 yards and a TD on 20 carries in Sunday's win over the Packers. He added 2 catches for 5 yards on 2 targets. That tied him for the team lead in receptions in a game that found the Jets attempting only 18 passes. RB Michael Carter rushed 6 times for 41 yards and caught 1 pass for 6 yards.

Packers WR Randall Cobb left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets with a left-ankle injury. He's officially questionable to return, but he came out of the injury tent in tears and then hopped on 1 foot to the cart to ride to the locker room. This seems potentially significant.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was held out on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. We’re not expecting the right thumb to be an issue vs. the Jets this weekend.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He had a wrap on that throwing thumb, but there's been nothing to suggest at this point that it'll be an issue vs. the Jets this weekend. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers did not practice on Wednesday due to a thumb injury. “We don't have much concern as far as gameday," HC Matt LaFleur said. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but it sounds like Rodgers will be available for this weekend's game vs. the Jets.

Jets TE Tyler Conklin remained heavily involved in the offense in Sunday's win over the Jets, playing the 4th most snaps among non-QB skill-position players on offense. The problem is that TE C.J. Uzomah was among the 3 who played more. Uzomah edged Conklin 41-40 in total snaps and also ran 5 more pass routes. Compare that to Week 4, when Conklin doubled Uzomah's routes and played 26 more snaps in all (with QB Zach Wilson back). One game of the depleted receiving role doesn't make Conklin a "must" drop, but he's also not a "must" hold at a position where many fantasy football lineups are desperate for a decent starting option. Don't expect him to be close to our top 12 at the position for a Week 6 visit to Green Bay. We'll see whether the playing-time alterations become a trend.

Jets RB Breece Hall rushed 18 times for 97 yards and a TD in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Hall added another 100 yards receiving despite seeing just 2 targets. His 2 catches went for 79 and 21 yards. Hall worked clearly ahead of RB Michael Carter once again, though he watched Carter vulture a pair of rushing scores among 10 carries. QB Zach Wilson also ran for a TD from 5 yards out, and WR Braxton Berrios found the end zone from 15 yards out on his only carry. Hall is looking like a weekly fantasy football starter.

Packers WR Randall Cobb drew a team-high 13 targets in Sunday's loss to the Giants, accounting for 33.3% of Aaron Rodgers' total attempts. He also led the team with 7 catches and 99 yards. WR Allen Lazard checked in next with 8 targets, catching 4 for 35 and a TD. TE Marcedes Lewis grabbed the only other TD on his lone catch of the game. Rookie WR Romeo Doubs tallied 3 receptions for 29 yards among 5 targets.

Packers WRs Allen Lazard and Romeo Doubs worked as the clear top 2 wideouts in Sunday's OT win over the Patriots. They played 70 snaps apiece (of 73) and ran 36 and 35 routes, respectively, among 37 Aaron Rodgers dropbacks. Randall Cobb checked in next among WRs at just 25 snaps and 18 routes. Lazard and Doubs also drew a matching 8 targets. Lazard caught 6 balls for a game-high 116 yards. Doubs posted a 5-47-1 receiving line and nearly added another TD but lost the ball when he hit the ground. We'd bet that these 2 continue to lead the corps after Sammy Watkins returns from his hamstring injury.

Jets LB Quincy Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That likely means a playing-time boost for LB Kwon Alexander, who figures to operate 2nd to C.J. Mosley at the position.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but is evidently good to go for Sunday night’s game vs. the Bucs.

Jets QB Zach Wilson (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll start Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. Wilson shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups, of course. We’ll see what the move from Joe Flacco to Wilson means for New York’s skill-position guys.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That should put him on track to play vs. the Bucs on Sunday night. We'll see what Kansas City's final injury report says tomorrow.

Jets HC Robert Saleh revealed that LB Quincy Williams suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 3 and is "week-to-week." That suggests we should not expect Willams to play this Sunday against the Steelers, which should mean starter-level snaps for LB Kwon Alexander.

Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman (heel) did not practice on Wednesday. His status for Sunday night's game vs. the Bucs is uncertain. Hardman's absence would free up snaps for WR Skyy Moore and/or WR Justin Watson.

Jets HC Robert Saleh announced Wednesday that QB Zach Wilson has been medically cleared from the meniscus tear and bone bruise he suffered in his knee in mid-August. Barring a setback this week, Wilson will start Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. He shouldn't be in fantasy lineups, but we'll see what he means for New York's skill-position guys. QB Joe Flacco currently leads the NFL with 155 pass attempts but completed just 59% of them and averaged an ugly 5.8 yards per attempt. Wilson is certainly capable of beating those numbers.
