| No limitations for Cobb this week -- Fri Nov 11 11:00 am --|
|No limitations on Packers receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) this week. "He's going to play as a full-time player," coach Mike McCarthy said. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Cobb was limited last week and didn't even play in the first half. With him being a full-go, the value of Davante Adams takes a hit. Cobb and Ty Montgomery are on the WR2 radar.
| Cobb will be a game-time decision -- Fri Nov 4 11:00 am --|
|Randall Cobb looks like a bigger question mark than Ty Montgomery to play Sunday against the Colts. "Ty's looking good," coach Mike McCarthy said. But he added that Cobb will be a game-time decision. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Cobb has been limited in practice this week and making matters worse for fantasy owners, the Packers and Colts play late afternoon on Sunday. It sounds like Cobb is on the wrong side of the questionable tag so Cobb owners should have plan B in place. WR/RB Ty Montgomery is expected to play.
|Packers dump Knile Davis -- Mon Oct 31 5:35 pm --|
Traded to Green Bay less than two weeks ago
|The Packers need running back help -- but they don't need Knile Davis. The team on Monday released the veteran runner less than two weeks after acquiring Davis from the Kansas City Chiefs, the team announced. A source informed of the situation told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo that the compensation conditions of the trade ultimately were not met, so the Packers will not have to give up anything to the Chiefs. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: The fact Davis wasn't long for Green Bay isn't overly surprising, but the fact the team parted ways so quickly given its current running back situation makes it a bit more so. The move suggests the team must be confident both Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb will be ready for Week 9 and also feels good about James Starks making it back in another week or so. Davis should be able to latch onto another team (possibly even Kansas City), but he's going to remain well off the fantasy radar.

FF Today's Take: Cobb's absence means Ty Montgomery and Davante Adams should see more opportunities against the Falcons. Both are worthy WR2 plays in a game with the highest total (52) on the board.
| Don Jackson likely to start Week 7 vs. Bears -- Thu Oct 20 1:50 pm --|
Eddie Lacy expected to miss most of regular season
|The Packers will determine later if Eddie Lacyís season is over. But tonight, newly promoted RB Don Jackson will be the main back. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Owners can pretty much stick a fork into the impending free agent for 2016 as IR will keep him out until late into December. Even though the Packers traded for Knile Davis on Tuesday, Jackson is the right choice to start against the Bears if only because he has been around the team and should know the offense. Ty Montgomery, Knile Davis and perhaps even Randall Cobb might get some backfield work, so Jackson is a desperation start at best tonight. Davis is the better long-term bet, however.
| Eddie Lacy expected to play -- Sun Oct 16 7:30 am --|
Cobb to see snaps as backup RB
|Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) is expected to playÖ but heís the only RB whoíll be active. Expect WR Randall Cobb(!) to be the backup RB. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: James Starks was ruled out yesterday. Lacy should be a workhorse as long as he remains healthy. We've noted all week during Lacy updates that Cobb would likely see some extra touches from the backfield, increasing his fantasy value in Week 6.
| James Starks ruled out -- Sat Oct 15 2:30 pm --|
Lacy remains Questionable
|The Green Bay Packers will be without running back James Starks (knee) and may be without cornerback Quinten Rollins (groin) Sunday when they take on the Dallas Cowboys. (Press Gazette)|
FF Today's Take: Starks is dealing with a knee injury and also missed time with the team this week due to a death in the family. Eddie Lacy remains questionable. With Starks out, don't be surprised if Randall Cobb sees a few extra snaps at running back in Week 6.
| Starks out until Saturday, Lacy nursing ankle -- Thu Oct 13 12:30 pm --|
Lacy on track to play
|McCarthy said James Starks is out of town and will not return to Green Bay until Saturday. It means that Starks will have one day of practice at most to test his knee, if he's cleared, as well as wrap his mind around this week's game plan. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)|
FF Today's Take: It appears Eddie Lacy is working through his ankle injury and should be able to play this week. Starks is away from the team due to a death in the family. Starks' knee injury could sideline him this week, meaning Randall Cobb could see a few snaps at running back against the Cowboys.
