Jarrett Boykin (groin, knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Vikings.

Davante Adams will again handle No. 3 duties himself. It's not a great matchup, as the Vikings have been playing solid pass defense with their CB trio of Xavier Rhoders, Captain Munnerlyn, and Josh Robinson. Boykin is droppable. Coach Mike McCarthy is already saying Boykin may miss Week 6 vs. Miami.

Packers TEs coach Jerry Fontenot confirmed Brandon Bostick doesn't have a full grasp of the offense, which is why he isn't playing on Sundays.

"I need to feel more comfortable with the things we're doing in practice," Fontenot said. "I need to see that he's making split-second decisions, the right decisions. We're still getting there." Fontenot said if Bostick could run all of his snaps out of the slot as a pass-catcher, then he'd be playing. But the offense calls for tight ends to do more, like block, play in-line, line up at fullback and out wide. Bostick doesn't have it down. He remains a Dynasty hold, but nothing else.

Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) sat out Tuesday's practice.

It appears Boykin will miss his second straight game on Thursday, again leaving Davante Adams as the Packers' No. 3 receiver against the Vikings. Boykin is droppable in 12-team leagues.

Andrew Quarless had zero catches on zero targets in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Confirming that his Week 3 mini-breakout was a fluke, Quarless airballed despite playing on 44-of-52 snaps. He's an in-line blocking complement to the guy the Packers want to be their pass-catching tight end, Richard Rodgers.
Sep 29 - 10:59 AM

James Starks received zero carries and played one snap in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Bears.

At least for now, the Packers remain fully committed to Eddie Lacy even though he's averaging 3.03 YPC. Starks, who is averaging 5.46 YPC over the last two seasons, is still a must-handcuff.
Sep 29 - 10:35 AM

Davante Adams caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Adams played better than his box scores looks as he soaked up all the No. 3 WR duties. He had a 34-yard touchdown called back by a holding penalty and also got targeted on a red-zone bubble screen. Unfortunately, the Packers ran more "12" packages than they usually do, possibly because Jarrett Boykin (knee) was inactive. Adams remains a hold as he'll have better days if Boykin remains sidelined. The Packers are now on a short week as they face the Vikings Thursday night.
Sep 28 - 5:25 PM

Richard Rodgers caught two passes for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Rodgers appeared to be on his way to a big day early as he caught the first two passes of the game. But he then went back into his invisible state even though the Packers ran more "12" formations than usual. These were the first two catches of Rodgers' NFL career.
Sep 28 - 5:21 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 10 passes for 108 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Oddly, the Bears left Nelson in 1-on-1 coverage or lost him in zones on the majority of snaps. And predictably, one of the best all-around receivers in the NFL made them pay with his second massive box score of the season. Through four games, Nelson is on pace for 132 catches, 1,824 yards and 12 touchdowns on 196 targets. It's not a fluke. A dominator at all three levels with an ability to play both inside and outside, Nelson is in play for the No. 1 wideout in all of fantasy football.
Sep 28 - 4:55 PM

Randall Cobb caught seven passes for 113 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 14 win at Chicago.

Even though he dropped an easy touchdown on a slant, it was Cobb's best performance of the season by a mile. Getting open at will, he continues to be a surprisingly consistent red-zone target for Aaron Rodgers. Through four games, Cobb is on pace for 84 catches, 956 yards, 20 touchdowns and 120 targets. Davante Adams is no threat to his productive slot role and outside spot in two-wide sets.
Sep 28 - 4:42 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 17 times for 48 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Lacy was able to punch in a 2-yard score in the first quarter and later had a 1-yard touchdown called back by penalty. But he struggled to pick up yards again, looking sluggish and rarely getting any momentum into the second level. Through four games, he's yet to top 3.3 YPC in a single contest and is on pace for 212 carries, 644 yards and four touchdowns. The scores are going to rise in this high-powered Packers offense, but Lacy's inability to tear through this Bears defense is very concerning. He faces the Vikings on a short week Thursday.
Sep 28 - 4:30 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 22-of-28 passes for 302 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Bears.

In a game that featured zero punts for just the second time in NFL history, Rodgers absolutely shredded a bad and injured Bears defense. It confirmed the obvious: Rodgers' somewhat slow start to the season was largely a result of facing the Seahawks, Jets and Lions in the first three weeks. He's still on pace to throw for 3,996 yards with 36 touchdowns and four interceptions, but he'll end up blowing past that pace. Rodgers gets a home game against the Vikings on Thursday.
Sep 28 - 3:59 PM

Davante Adams will be the Packers' No. 3 wideout in Sunday's game against the Bears.

It's a monster opportunity for Adams, a physical and polished rookie who was Derek Carr's go-to guy at Fresno State last season. He'll play on roughly 70 percent of the snaps against a banged up and bad Bears defense, putting him squarely on the WR3 radar. Intriguing prospect Jeff Janis will be the No. 4 wideout.
Sep 28 - 12:05 PM

Packers declared Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) inactive for Sunday's Week 4 game at Chicago.

Already trending down due to a poor start to the season, Boykin is now really in the dumps. It's a monster opportunity for talented rookie Davante Adams, who projects to play at least 70 percent of the snaps as Aaron Rodgers' No. 3 wideout. He's a WR3 with upside. Jeff Janis is also active for the first time in his career. The rest of the Packers' inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Brad Jones and C Garth Gerhart.
Sep 28 - 11:34 AM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said it sounds like TE Brandon Bostick's "practice habits have not warranted playing time."

Bostick missed Week 1 with a leg injury, and has been limited almost exclusively to special teams in the Packers' other two games. Bostick is the most athletic option in Green Bay's tight end corps, but will have to improve his consistency to earn meaningful snaps.
Sep 27 - 12:43 PM

Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Bears.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Boykin hurt his groin in Thursday's practice, and will be a game-time decision for Sunday. If Boykin, who has already been seeing his snaps reduced thanks to drops, can't play, Davante Adams will likely handle No. 3 duties himself, with fellow rookie Jeff Janis mixing in as the No. 4.
