| Davante Adams, Jordy Nelson out for Packers|
Williams and Mayes to handle running back duties
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 29, 11:40 am
|The Packers will take the field Sunday without wide receivers Davante Adams (concussion) and Jordy Nelson (shoulder), right guard Jahri Evans (knee), running back Aaron Jones (knee), outside linebacker Nick Perry (ankle/shoulder) and tight end Richard Rodgers (shoulder). (Green Bay Press Gazette)|
FFToday's Take: Without Adams and Nelson, we can expect Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison (illness), Michael Clark, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis to be the active wide receivers for the Packers. Cobb would appear to have the most fantasy value of the bunch. At running back, expect Jamaal Williams to get the majority of snaps with Devante Mays getting some work as well.

Jamaal Williams expected to get most of the work

FFToday's Take: With Jones in the mix, Williams' fantasy value takes a slight hit but owners can still feel safe starting him based on Shefter's report. Williams feels like a middling RB2 today against Tampa Bay.
| Ty Montgomery lands on IR|

FFToday's Take: Montgomery has been dealing with a rib issue much of the season but he lands on the injured reserve due to a wrist injury. Aaron Jones (MCL) was limited in practice Friday and is listed questionable for Sunday.
| Aaron Jones moving "pretty well" in practice|
Decision on Week 13 status could come Friday or Saturday

|Packers RB coach Ben Sirmans says Aaron Jones (knee) moving pretty well in practice: "I think it's going to come down to a call maybe Friday, or maybe Saturday." (Green Bay Press-Gazette)|
FFToday's Take: For now, it should be treated as a good sign for his Week 14 status and nothing more. HC Mike McCarthy seems happy enough with Jamaal Williams at the moment, but it wasn't long ago Jones had a vise-grip hold on early-down work in Green Bay. Jones is a good stash who could pay off handsomely in the fantasy playoffs, but owners would be wise to see him in action before putting him in lineups.
| Aaron Jones limited on Thursday|
Ty Montgomery misses
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 30, 11:45 am
|#Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) did very little in drills media got to watch. Kevin King (shoulder) and Ty Montgomery (ribs) did not work. (Tom Silverstein on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Jones' availability for Week 13 is key as without him, Jamaal Williams will see the bulk of the work in the backfield for the Packers. We should get a better handle on Packers running back workload after tomorrow's practice.
| Ty Montgomery misses practice Thursday|

|Not practicing for the Packers: Clay Matthews (groin), Kenny Clark (ankle), Aaron Jones (knee), Ty Montgomery (ribs), Lucas Patrick (hand). (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Mongtomery has been battling a rib injury for weeks. He missed Wednesday's practice as well, making it likely that Jamaal Williams will get the bulk of the carries this week against the Steelers. Williams will be a FLEX consideration in a bad matchup.
| Ty Montgomery misses practice Wednesday|
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 15, 4:10 pm
|Not practicing: RB Aaron Jones (knee), RB Ty Montgomery (ribs), S Morgan Burnett (groin), T Bryan Bulaga (knee). (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Montgomery re-injured his ribs in Week 10 and it's unlikely he will practice much this week. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he's hoping Montgomery can play this week. Expect Jamaal Williams to the majority of work this week in a neutral matchup against the Ravens-D.
| Aaron Jones expected to miss 3-6 weeks|
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 13, 11:30 am
|Packers RB Aaron Jones expected to be sidelined 3-6 weeks with MCL injury, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Not only did Jones get injured yesterday but Ty Montgomery left the game with a rib injury. Jamaal Williams is now back into fantasy relevance and will get the Ravens and Steelers the next two weeks.
