Packers Fantasy News

Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) missed practice again Thursday. Robinson downplayed the forearm injury, but two consecutive missed practices are a bit worrisome. We’re still expecting him to play against the Packers. He should see a few extra touches with Pierre Thomas out. If he can’t play, Mark Ingram will be a very solid RB2 and Travaris Cadet will be a worthwhile RB3/flex, especially in PPR formats.

Packers RB James Starks (ankle) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. It looks like Starks is on track to play.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. It looks like Graham escaped Week 7 without a setback. He played 41% of the snaps, or 30 plays in total. He’s likely to be limited again in Week 8 in what should be a high-scoring game against the Packers. We would recommend benching him for other good TE options until he shows he’s ready to produce. He’s currently our #8 ranked tight end.

Packers RB James Starks (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. We’ll monitor his progress this week. If Starks can’t play, Eddie Lacy would be a safer start, while DuJuan Harris would serve as his primary backup.

WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) made the trip to Wisconsin, per team official. All signs point to him playing Sunday vs. Packers.

Fantasy Impact:

As we stated earlier, the Panthers play early on Sunday, so we'll know if there are any last-minute setbacks by around noon. His absence would be a downgrade for QB Cam Newton and an upgrade for TE Greg Olsen and WR Jerricho Cotchery, but at this point he looks like he's going to play.

DeAngelo Williams OUT for Week 7

The Panthers have downgraded the status of running back DeAngelo Williams to out for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

The team said Saturday that running back Fozzy Whittaker, is also out.

Fantasy Impact:

Both were listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report. As we stated earlier this week: Jonathan Stewart (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 7. Stewart is expected to start in a nice matchup against the Packers. In 11 games that Stewart played without DeAngelo Williams from 2009 to 2010, he averaged over 100 total yards, and provided decent production in his starting stint earlier this season. Consider him a RB3/flex type since the Panther running game isn’t exactly firing on all cylinders.

Panthers RB Darrin Reaves (calf, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 7. Reaves is now looking doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Packers. Chris Ogbonnaya would back up Jonathan Stewart, who is expected to make his return this week.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Packers WR Jarrett Boykin (groin, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 7. Boykin’s possible return shouldn’t impact Davante Adams, who has taken over the Green Bay WR3 role.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Panthers TE Greg Olsen (ankle, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 7. Olsen will be fine to face the Packers. If Kelvin Benjamin is out, he will likely be the focus of the passing attack.
