NFL Network reports that the Giants have reached a 3-year, $30 million deal with free-agent LB Blake Martinez. The former Packer spent the past 3 years as an IDP stud after arriving in the 4th round of the 2016 draft. He now moves to a Giants D under new leadership. DC Patrick Graham has spent just 1 season to date as an NFL coordinator: 2019 with the Dolphins. We'll see exactly what his plan is for the LBs. Miami generally found more playing time last season for a 2nd ILB, though, than Green Bay did over the past 3 years. Martinez could lose some tackles off his elite totals from Green Bay -- especially if 2019 rookie Ryan Connelly is all the way back from his ACL tear by September. Expect Martinez to remain prominently in starter territory in our 2020 IDP rankings, but he might slip out of the LB1 range in our initial projections. New Packers LB Christian Kirksey, meanwhile, looks well set up for strong fantasy numbers.
As expected, Packers ILB Blake Martinez (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. Use him as you normally would in your IDP lineups.
Packers ILB Blake Martinez (ankle) is questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Seahawks. Martinez played his full snap allotment last week despite the issue and put in limited practices the past 2 days. We’ll check his status pre-game, but expect to have Martinez available for IDP lineups
Packers ILB Blake Martinez (ankle) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He belongs in IDP lineups if you waited for him.
Packers LB Blake Martinez (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He managed limited practices all week after an ankle injury that looked potentially serious. We'll check Martinez's status Sunday afternoon. The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff is problematic, but he seems on track to play. Look to Chargers LBs Jatavis Brown and Denzel Perryman, Seahawks LB K.J. Wright and Eagles LB Nigel Bradham as potential insurance options.
Packers ILB Blake Martinez put in a limited practice Wednesday. That's noteworthy because it followed a Sunday night ankle injury that earned Martinez a cart ride to the locker room. He said earlier this week that he still hoped to play in Week 10. The fact that he took part at all Wednesday is encouraging.
Packers ILB Blake Martinez hurt his left ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game against the Patriots. He landed on Tom Brady's foot and rolled the ankle while blitzing the New England QB. Martinez hobbled off under his own power but went to the locker room on a cart after being checked out on the sideline. We'll see how this situation unfolds.
Packers ILB Blake Martinez (knee) is active for today's game against the Bears. He returns as a low-level IDP option after 3 games out. CB Damarious Randall (groin) is also active.
Packers ILB Blake Martinez (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. He put in limited practices all week but has since Week 13. Martinez makes for a weak IDP option at this point, even if active. We'll check on his status Sunday, though. OLB Nick Perry (hand) is doubtful. CB Damarious Randall (groin) is questionable.
Packers ILB Blake Martinez (knee) is out once again for today's game against Seattle. CB Ladarius Gunter (illness), OLB Clay Matthews (shoulder) and CB Damarious Randall (groin) are all active, however.
Packers ILB Blake Martinez (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. OLB Clay Matthews (shoulder) and ILB Jake Ryan (ankle) are active and ready for normal IDP usage.
Packers ILBs Blake Martinez (knee) and Jake Ryan (ankle) and OLB Clay Matthews (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Martinez and Ryan put in limited workouts all week and appear on track to return after missing multiple games. Matthews played through his injury last Monday night at Philly and returned to limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. We'd guess he'll play as well. But we'll update the status for all 3 Sunday.
The Packers have ruled ILB Blake Martinez (knee) out for Monday night's game at Philadelphia. According to multiple reports, however, they expect questionable ILB Jake Ryan (ankle) to play. ILB Joe Thomas should fill in for Martinez next to Ryan. Neither will be a strong IDP option, though there's tackle upside to Ryan.
Packers ILB Jake Ryan left Sunday's loss to Tennessee with an ankle injury suffered on the Packers' 1st punt of the game. His Week 11 status is in question. LB Joe Thomas played 100% of the snaps with Ryan out. Blake Martinez followed among LBs at 73% playing time.
