Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Cook suffered the injury late in the game against the Packers. It’s something to monitor this week. Latavius Murray is shaping up as a Sneaky Start given the injury and the distinct possibility that even if Cook does play, the Vikings may limit him or shut him down if/when Minnesota jumps out to a big lead.

According to coach Mike McCarthy, Aaron Jones, who is returning from a two-game suspension, will play behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones has long been loved more by the fantasy community than his own head coaches. That comes down to his lack of consistency or ability to do the little things as well as Jamaal Williams. Still, it should be difficult for Green Bay to keep him off the field considering how much more dynamic he is than current starter Williams. Jones should be owned in most leagues, but isn't startable for now.

Looks like Packers QB Aaron Rodgers escaped without further damage

Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers is, "obviously sore, but that's to be expected. But he's a warrior, what he gave us yesterday was outstanding. I don't have a read on whether he's better this week than last week."

Fantasy Impact:

Rodgers is no worse with his knee injury than he was before Week 2 so that seems like it should be good news for owners. Rodgers and the Packers get the Redskins in Week 3.

Aaron Rodgers practiced Saturday for the first time since he sprained his knee, increasing the Packers' chances of having their starting quarterback on Sunday vs. the Vikings. A significant step but doesn't guarantee Rodgers' return.

Fantasy Impact:

An early kickoff will help those with Rodgers find a replacement if he's out. Be sure to monitor his status Sunday morning.

Packers WR Davante Adams (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 2. Adams should be able to face the Vikings, but he’ll have a tough matchup against Xavier Rhodes. In their last meeting Adams posted 5-54-1 with Rhodes shadowing him.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 2. Rodgers figures to play against the Vikings, though HC Mike McCarthy described the situation as “no layup.” The Packers play early on Sunday. If Rodgers does indeed sit, the entire passing game will need to be downgraded since DeShone Kizer would draw the start.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) missed practice Thursday. Baldwin isn’t going to play against the Bears. In a tough matchup against the Broncos, Tyler Lockett turned four targets into three catches for 59 yards and a score, while Brandon Marshall posted three catches for 46 yards and a touchdown on six targets. Lockett plays mostly in the slot, where he’ll match up with Bryce Callahan, who gave up six catches on six targets against the Packers in Week 1. Callahan doesn’t have the speed to stick with Lockett, so the key will be whether the Seattle offensive line can pass protect long enough to allow Lockett to get downfield. Marshall is likely to see a lot of the shorter routes and may be the better play in PPR formats.

Packers WR Davante Adams (shoulder) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Adams is probably a go for Week 2. He will likely be shadowed by Xavier Rhodes.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Rodgers seemed confident after the Packers’ comeback victory against the Bears that he’d be out there against the Vikings, though he said that the team is taking it “one day at a time.” He won’t be anywhere near 100%, but he should be able to play in Week 2. We’ll see.
