Marquez Valdes-Scantling Injury Updates

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee, ankle) is "hopeful" to play against the Raiders today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. MVS was able to play through these injuries last week but only got in a limited practice on Friday. He won't be at 100% if he suits up, leaving him as a risky WR3.

Packers WRs Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle, knee) and Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) did not practice on Wednesday. MVS was able to return from his injuries this past Monday night, so we're expecting him to play this weekend against the Raiders. Adams and Allison seem truly questionable. Next up on the depth chart are Jake Kumerow, Allen Lazard and Darrius Shepherd.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Lions. He didn't practice all week and admitted on Thursday that his turf toe is a "major injury." Adams shouldn't be considered a lock to return for Week 7. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison and Jake Kumerow will again serve as Green Bay’s top 3 WRs on Monday night.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. His injury is reportedly minor, but he didn’t practice all week and shouldn’t be considered a lock to return for Week 6. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison will operate as Green Bay’s top 2 WRs vs. Dallas.

Packers WR Davante Adams told reporters after Thursday night's game that he has turf toe and will see Dr. Robert Anderson to get it examined. The severity of the injury will determine how long Adams is sidelined. But as we saw last night, turf toe is almost impossible to play through. Adams' absence would leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay's top 2 WRs. Darrius Shepard and Allen Lazard filled in for Adams on Thursday night. Jake Kumerow is a better bet than either of those guys but is dealing with a shoulder injury. TE Jimmy Graham would also project to see more volume with Adams out. He racked up 9 targets last night.

The Packers expect WR Randall Cobb to return today from the hamstring injury that cost him the past 3 games, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cobb's return would mean more time outside than in the slot for WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, which means more potential matchups with lead Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson.

The Packers have placed WR Geronimo Allison on IR with his core muscle injury. He's not eligible to return until the postseason and can be dropped from all redraft rosters. Green Bay will move forward with Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Randall Cobb and Equanimeous St. Brown as its top 4 WRs. Adams will continue to dominate targets, while Valdes-Scantling and Cobb are WR3 options.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that WR Geronimo Allison has a "significant" core injury. Insider Tom Silverstein writes that it "sounds like" Allison will need surgery. We'll look for more details on the situation, but expect Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb to serve as Green Bay's top 3 WRs for the foreseeable future.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Friday that WR Geronimo Allison injured his groin in Thursday's practice. "We'll see where he is tomorrow," McCarthy added. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but the fact that Packers-Patriots is the Sunday nighter makes this a tricky situation for fantasy owners. Allison should be on benches for now. His absence would make WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb much safer fantasy plays.

ESPN's Lisa Salters reports that Packers WRs Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb are "likely to be inactive" for tonight's game against the 49ers with their hamstring injuries. We'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET. Their absences would again leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown as Green Bay's #2 and #3 WRs. MVS is a viable WR3 and ESB a WR4 flier.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion) did not practice on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Stacy Dales. On top of the concussion, he's also listed with a hamstring on the injury report now. We'll get Allison's official status around noon ET today, but he's looking like a big long shot to play against the Lions. That'll leave rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling as Green Bay's #2 WR -- and an intriguing flier if you're looking for upside in deep fantasy leagues and DFS lineups.

Packers WR Davante Adams suffered a calf injury on Wednesday and will not practice on Thursday, HC Mike McCarthy announced. Ouch. WRs Geronimo Allison (concussion) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are already in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Lions. Now Adams looks iffy too. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Brown are the team's top 3 healthy WRs right now.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky considers Geronimo Allison the "best bet" to win the Packers' #3 WR job. Green Bay added 3 WRs in this year's draft -- J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling -- but Allison holds edges in NFL experience and chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. The 24-year-old has flashed in spots over the past 2 seasons, including lines of 4-91-1 and 6-122. Green Bay's #3 WR has finished among the top 50 in PPR points in just 3 of 10 seasons since Rodgers took over, so Allison is unlikely to be a standalone value. But an injury to Davante Adams or Randall Cobb would certainly change that.
