Martinez questionable for Week 15 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

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.

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.
