Packers QB Aaron Rodgers undergoes surgery

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy announced today that QB Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery for his broken right collarbone.

Fantasy Impact:

The team didn't put Rodgers on their injured reserve list—holding out hope for best-case scenario where he returns in Week 16 and the playoffs—but it does seem like his season is over. The only instance we can see value in stashing Rodgers is in a super-deep 2QB or Superflex league with a high number of bench spots.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) took full practice reps again Thursday. The full reps indicate he’s good to go.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (right collarbone) missed practice again Thursday. Rodgers will miss around eight weeks, so he’s likely out until Week 14. Brett Hundley should be a solid streaming option for owners scrambling for options at quarterback. The former fifth-round pick is a dual threat and has a pretty good set of receivers to throw to.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) practiced fully Wednesday. Montgomery is probably a go for a so-so matchup with an improved Saints defense.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Monday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers will require surgery on his broken collarbone.

Related players: Brett Hundley

Fantasy Impact:

The Packers will not sign a veteran QB, according to the story. Hundley should have some fantasy value with all the talent around him, and once the team adjusts the game plan to Hundley's strengths. The team could also use a more balanced attack. Also, nothing changes with Rodgers' timeline. He'll be out for the remainder of the season and miss a "significant amount of time," according to McCarthy.

Confirmed: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has broken collarbone

Aaron Rodgers was carted to the locker room in the first quarter of Sunday's game after taking a hard hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. The two-time Most Valuable Player suffered a broken collarbone that could cause him to miss the rest of the season, the Packers announced.

Related players: Brett Hundley

Fantasy Impact:

Hundley will take over for the foreseeable future at QB. NFL Red Zone reported Rodgers missed seven weeks back in 2013 with a broken collarbone, but we're already seeing reports of the possibility Rodgers won't be back this year. Hundley downgrades the Packers receivers and it's possible the team turns to a more balanced attack, especially with RB Aaron Jones showing a spark last week against Dallas.

Packers QB Aaron Rogers leaves with shoulder injury

ESPN - [Full Article]

Aaron Rodgers was carted to the locker room after Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr hit him in the first quarter Sunday.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback was rolling out to his right with Barr pressuring him. As Rodgers threw, Barr hit him in the midsection and he landed on his throwing shoulder.

Fantasy Impact:

NFL Red Zone reported Fox's Jay Glazer said the Packers fear Rogers broke his collarbone. Red Zone also reminded us that Rodgers missed seven weeks with a broken collarbone back in 2013. We'll continue to keep you updated.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (back) took full practice reps all week. Nelson was removed from the injury report, so he’ll be out there against the Vikings.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 6. Montgomery “felt fine” after taking hits in practice, so he may be able to return for Week 6. The Packers have a bye in Week 8, so they may elect to hold him out two more games to give his ribs three more full weeks to heal. Aaron Jones has emerged as a viable alternative to Montgomery, so we’re looking at a committee upon Montgomery’s return.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery ruled questionable for Week 6

Wes Hodkiewicz - [Full Article]

On the Packers' official Week 6 injury report, Ty Montgomery was listed as questionable. However, he has been a full participant in practice all week.

Fantasy Impact:

One thing to watch out for is that while Montgomery practiced, he did so through the use of a flak jacket and didn't take on much contact. It wouldn't be a surprise to us if he missed another game. If Montgomery plays, he might be limited and Aaron Jones could take on more work.

We currently have Jones ranked as our No. 11 RB in standard leagues and No. 21 RB in PPR leagues. Check back closer to Sunday morning for an update to our rankings.

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (back) was officially removed from the team's Week 6 injury report. Feel free to start him with confidence this week.

Vikings rule OUT QB Sam Bradford and WR Stefon Diggs

Andrew Krammer - [Full Article]

The Vikings will be without Bradford and Diggs this week when they face the Green Bay Packers at home.

Fantasy Impact:

No Bradford means another start for Case Keenum, who we have ranked as our No. 16 QB this week in a neutral matchup versus the Packers.

Losing the services of Diggs hurts more than Bradford. Diggs, the No. 3 fantasy WR, is fifth in the NFL in receiving yards (395) and fourth in TDs (4). No Diggs means a bump up for Adam Thielen, who we have ranked as our No. 10 WR for the week in a great matchup.

Thursday, October 12, 2017, 6:57pm

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (back) took full practice reps again Thursday. Nelson should continue to play through the hamstring injury. He has a great matchup against the Bucs this week (No. 32 in WR aFPA).
