Green Bay Packers Fantasy Football News 2020

11:10am EDT 10/25/20

Packers OLB Preston Smith (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Texans. He's a low-level IDP but available if you had him in your plans.

Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He put in full practices Wednesday and Thursday before being limited Friday. We'll check his status Sunday.

Packers DT Kenny Clark is inactive for tonight's game against the Falcons. He's been out since suffering a groin injury in Week 1. CB Jaire Alexander and OLB Za'Darius Smith are active and available for IDP lineups.

The Packers have placed LB Christian Kirksey (pectoral) on IR. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games, starting with the Monday night Falcons clash we already knew he'd miss. That also should make LB Ty Summers a starter for those 3 games. If he didn't already get claimed off waivers in your IDP league, go ahead and grab him.

Packers CB Jaire Alexander (hand, knee) popped up on the injury report Saturday as questionable for Monday night's game against the Falcons. He missed practice Saturday after practicing in full Thursday and Friday. Don't wait for him Monday night unless you have a replacement from the same game. DT Kenny Clark (groin) and OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) are questionable for the game. Each put in limited practices all week. Clark has been out since suffering his injury in Week 1 and doesn't make for a great IDP bet. Smith is worth waiting for if you were planning to start him and have insurance available. Falcons LB Foye Oluokun looks like a potential replacement option.

ESPN reports that Packers LB Christian Kirksey will miss at least 1 game with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of the win over the Saints Sunday night. The report says that Kirksey will "likely" avoid surgery but that he's awaiting a 2nd opinion. A stint on IR remains a possibility. LB Ty Summers makes for a solid waiver pickup for at least this week, ahead of Monday night's game against the Falcons.

Packers LB Christian Kirksey left in the 1st half of Sunday night's game at New Orleans with a left shoulder injury and was ruled out for the game. Ty Summers stepped in and wore the green dot. If Kirksey misses more time going forward, that could mean a full-time role for Summers -- a 7th-round pick in 2019. We'll watch for updates on Kirksey's status early in the week.

Packers DT Kenny Clark (groin) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Saints. He left Week 1 early and then missed last Sunday's game. The late start for this one means you should go in another direction for your IDP lineup, if you can do so.

The Packers have ruled DT Kenny Clark (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. "I know he's doing everything in his power to be back as soon as possible but he won't be able to play this weekend," HC Matt LaFleur said after Friday's practice, according to the team website. We'll see about Clark's status heading into Week 3.

Packers DT Kenny Clark left Sunday's game at Minnesota in the 1st half with a groin injury. The team has ruled him out for the game. We'll see about the seriousness of the issue beyond that.

Packers CB Kevin King (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Bears. Use him as you normally would in your IDP lineups.

Packers CB Kevin King is inactive for today's game against Washington.

Packers CB Kevin King (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. He put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday before a full workout Friday. We'll check King's status Sunday morning.

Packers CB Jaire Alexander (groin) and S Adrian Amos (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Panthers and available for IDP use.
