Packers CB Jaire Alexander left Sunday's win over the Jets in the 1st half with a groin injury and did not return. He previously missed a pair of October games with an injury to the same area. Alexander won't be worth the risk in Week 17 for most IDP owners even if he's active.
Packers rookie CB Jaire Alexander is inactive for tonight's game against the 49ers. That leaves fellow rookie Josh Jackson to man the slot primarily in Alexander's place. No San Francisco WR gets a significant boost in fantasy outlook.
Packers CB Jaire Alexander (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Lions. S Kentrell Brice is active after entering the day questionable with an ankle injury. Neither is much of an IDP candidate.
After moving down from 14th, the Packers jumped back up to the 18th pick in the NFL Draft to select Louisville CB Jaire Alexander. The former Cardinal played just 6 games last season while dealing with multiple injuries. The year before, however, he grabbed 5 INTs. Alexander also served as a primary and productive punt returner over his 1st 2 seasons. There's big-play upside here.
