  • Davante Adams, Jordy Nelson, Others Sitting Out In Week 17

    Green Bay Packers wide receivers Davante Adams (concussion) and Jordy Nelson (shoulder), running back Aaron Jones (knee) and tight end Richard Rodgers (shoulder) have all been ruled out in Week 17 against the Lions. It makes zero sense for the Packers to play any of their injured players with nothing on the line this weekend. Adams was the team's most consistent wide receiver this year, even with quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) missing extended time. Nelson was the biggest bust with only 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns. He'll turn 33 next year, but he could rebound with a health Aaron Rodgers under center in 2018 in what is the last year of his contract. Jones looked like the team's best running back before suffering his injury, and he'll enter next year as the favorite for lead-back duties. Rodgers never became fantasy relevant and is unlikely to do so moving forward. In Week 17, Randall Cobb will be the top receiver, but he still carries plenty of risk with Brett Hundley throwing the ball. Geronimo Allison and rookie Michael Clark will also be asked to step up. In the backfield, Jamaal Williams will continue to carry the load and can be a decent RB2. Lance Kendricks will be the main pass-catching tight end, but he should be avoided in fantasy.

  • Davante Adams, Jordy Nelson Sidelined At Practice

    Green Bay Packers wide receivers Davante Adams (concussion) and Jordy Nelson (shoulder) were each sidelined for Thursday's practice. Nelson is fully expected to miss Sunday's finale, bringing the curtain down on his 2017 with just 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns. Nelson should be formally ruled out on Friday. Adams has not played or practiced since suffering a concussion in Week 15. That was his second concussion of the year. He is not expected to play against Detroit in Week 17. The impending free agent is tied with Jimmy Graham for second in the league with 10 touchdown receptions.

  • Jordy Nelson Misses Practice, Unlikely to Play Week 17

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson (shoulder) will miss practice on Wednesday and is unlikely to play this weekend against Detroit. Nelson suffered an unspecified shoulder injury in Week 16 against Minnesota. Since Green Bay is out of the playoff race, they have little incentive to play Nelson. Nelson has had a hugely disappointing year. Although he started off 2017 well by scoring a high volume of touchdowns, he has struggled mightily since quarterback Brett Hundley's first start. Nelson has lost a good deal of his speed and quickness and now relies largely on guile to create separation. He can get away with it when Aaron Rodgers is under center on account of their chemistry, but he has disappeared into fantasy irrelevancy with the less-experienced Hundley. Nelson could rebound next year with Rodgers returning, and a move to the slot could benefit him. However, Green Bay is in an interesting salary cap situation with their wide receivers and there is no guarantee Nelson will return. Caution is warranted when thinking about Nelson for next year.
