Related Players: Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison

Fantasy Impact:

Monitor reports to see if there's any indication if he'll play his usual number of starter snaps, but this is great news not only for Adams but fantasy owners in a plus match-up against the Cowboys.

Packers WR Davante Adams (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 5. Adams still has to clear his concussion protocol, so we should know more by the close of business on Saturday. If he’s out, Geronimo Allison looks like a very Sneaky Start against a shaky Dallas secondary. Allison caught 6 passes for 122 yards with Randall Cobb sidelined against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact:

The Packers are down both starting tackles so they may keep Martellus Bennett in to block more often than usual. Cobb should be able to pick up where he left off. In seven quarters of football, Cobb caught 15 passes for 145 yards, which is an 8.6-catch, 83-yard pace over four quarters. Cobb had a goose egg in his last matchup with the Bears, but in three previous meetings, he averaged 7.3 catches for 69 yards and 0.7 touchdowns.

Report: Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) '50-50' for Week 3

Tuesday, September 19, 2017, 3:25pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

The Green Bay Packers' offense put on a disastrous display before garbage time on Sunday night, failing to keep pace with Matt Ryan and the Falcons, and there's a chance things won't get much better this coming weekend. That's because the Packers might be without their best receiver.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jordy Nelson is 50-50 with a quad injury.

Related players: Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Martellus Bennett, Ty Montgomery

Fantasy Impact:

Cobb is also a bit banged up which could mean a bigger role for Allison. However it could also mean more targets for the more established receivers as well.

Packer WRs Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb injured on SNF

Monday, September 18, 2017, 8:28am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Two of the Green Bay Packers' biggest playmakers didn't it make through the first series of Sunday night's 34-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Another tried to gut out an injury but finally succumbed.

Receiver Jordy Nelson hobbled off the field after eight offensive plays because of a quad injury, and defensive tackle Mike Daniels pulled a hamstring on the Falcons' first drive. Receiver Randall Cobb tried to play through a shoulder injury and finally dropped out in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact:

Cobb did say he thinks he'll be OK. But for Nelson, it was an injury to the same leg in which he tore his ACL in 2015, ESPN said. The story added Nelson tried to work through it, riding a stationary bike and jogging on the sideline, but was ruled out after halftime. Other outlets report Nelson he took a knee to his quad.

Packers Beat: More TEs could mean less time for WR Randall Cobb

Yes, Mike McCarthy said he wants the ball in Randall Cobb’s hands more often. And during training camp, the Green Bay Packers' seventh-year receiver has looked as good as ever.

The addition of tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks may mean the Packers employ fewer formations that include receiver Randall Cobb (above). Isaiah J. Downing/USA TODAY Sports
But this isn’t the offense of the last few years, where McCarthy sends out three receivers, a tight end and a running back for snap after snap. Since 2013, only four teams have run more plays with three receivers on the field than the Packers, according to ESPN Stats & Information. In that same stretch, no team has run fewer plays with multiple tight ends on the field than the Packers.

That all could change this season with the addition of veteran tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, and it could impact Cobb more than any individual on the roster.

Fantasy Impact:

The story pointed to an example where the Pack went with a two-TE package along with Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams at WR on first and second down before eventually having Cobb replace Kendricks on third down. Granted it's only preseason, but Cobb seems to be the WR who will get less time if there are two TEs on the field.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy described WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) as practicing yesterday more than anticipated. Sounds relatively optimistic.

Related players: Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis, Trevor Davis

Fantasy Impact:

Randall Cobb is the only healthy receiver of the Packers' top four wideouts. Nelson, Adams and Allison will be game-time decisions for a likely shootout against the Falcons.

Friday, January 13, 2017, 8:14pm

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 19. With Nelson out, Geronimo Allison will likely pick up most of his snaps. He played 58% of the snaps against the Giants, and had a quiet game, but that was with Nelson playing 23% of the snaps. In the two previous games, with Randall Cobb sidelined, Allison played 73% and 81% of the snaps, posting 4-66 (on seven targets) against the Vikings and 4-91-1 (on six targets) against the Lions.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Cobb is coming off of a stellar 5-116-3 (7) effort against the Giants in the Wildcard Round. With Jordy Nelson out, he should see plenty of quality targets from Aaron Rodgers.
