Andrew Quarless was held without a catch on one target in Green Bay's Week 17 win over the Lions.

Quarless heads into the playoffs the owner of a 29/323/3 line. If he makes an impact in the Divisional Round, it will be hard to see coming.
Dec 28 - 8:38 PM

James Starks rushed five times for 26 yards in Green Bay's Week 17 win over the Lions.

Eddie Lacy's caddie enters the playoffs on the back of a regular season where he averaged just 3.91 yards per carry. That's compared to 5.53 in 2013.
Dec 28 - 8:36 PM

Davante Adams wasn't targeted in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions.

Adams heads into the playoffs with just four catches over his past four games. He'll be a low-cost, but high-risk, WR3 in daily leagues during the postseason tournament.
Dec 28 - 8:21 PM

Randall Cobb caught 4-of-5 targets for 80 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions.

It was a fitting end to what was easily the best regular season of Cobb's four-year career. He heads into the playoffs the owner of a 91/1,287/12 line. All three totals blow by his previous personal bests.
Dec 28 - 8:11 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-8 targets for 86 yards in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions.

Nelson closes the book on the regular season with 98 catches for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns. Both the catches and yards are new career bests by comfortable margins. Nelson now has two weeks to rest up for a home playoff game in the Divisional Round.
Dec 28 - 8:09 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 26 times for 100 yards in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions, adding three receptions for 26 additional yards.

Lacy came out angry, spinning off tacklers as he racked up 35 yards across his first three carries. He wasn't as effective thereafter, losing a fumble while coming perilously close to a second cough up. Either way, Lacy closes out the regular season having surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his final nine games. For the year, he totaled 1,566 yards and 13 touchdowns. He now gets two weeks to rest up for the Pack's Divisional Round game.
Dec 28 - 7:54 PM

Playing through a calf injury, Aaron Rodgers completed 17-of-22 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns in Green Bay's 30-20, Week 17 win over the Lions.

He added two rushes for 14 yards and a third score. With the win, the Pack clinch the NFC North, and their conference's No. 2 seed. Things were going swimmingly until Rodgers tweaked his troublesome left calf late in the second quarter. What was a 14-0 lead quickly became a 14-14 tie as Rodgers sat out two series. He returned no worse for the wear, however, and resumed dominating a team that didn't appear to be in the same class as the Pack. He now has two weeks to rest up for a home playoff game. Rodgers has a strong case for the league's MVP award. He closes the book on the regular season the owner of a staggering 38:5 TD:INT ratio. His 4,381 yards are his most since his MVP year in 2011.

Aaron Rodgers (calf) returned to the Packers' Week 17 game against the Lions midway through the third quarter.

Rodgers ended up missing two series after aggravating his left-calf injury late in the first half. His mobility will be extremely limited on a cold day in Green Bay, but it's a huge boost for a Packers team fighting for a first-round bye. Rodgers departed after staking the Pack to a 14-0 lead, but returns with the scored tied at 14.
Dec 28 - 6:19 PM

Aaron Rodgers was carted to the locker room in the second quarter of Green Bay's Week 17 game against the Lions with a left-calf injury.

He's officially questionable to return. In the midst of throwing a four-yard touchdown to Randall Cobb, Rodgers went down untouched. He was helped to the sideline before briefly attempting to walk the injury off. He was then carted to the locker room with two minutes remaining in the first half. It's the same leg that Rodgers tweaked in Week 16. It's possible Rodgers simply headed in for early treatment, but it had the looks of a potentially game-ending injury. That would make a victory for the Pack absolutely imperative, as it would give their franchise player a first-round bye, and week to rest. Matt Flynn will check in if Rodgers is done for the day.
Dec 28 - 5:36 PM

Aaron Rodgers (calf) is active for Week 17 against the Lions.

Rodgers is ready to go, but both Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien are active behind him, suggesting his calf is at least a mild concern. ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports there's "a little concern." Inactive for the Packers are RB DuJuan Harris, CB Davon House, LB Carl Bradford, C Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, WR Jeff Janis and DT Bruce Gaston.
Dec 28 - 3:00 PM

Aaron Rodgers (calf) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Rodgers will be all systems go Sunday versus the Lions.
Dec 26 - 1:56 PM

Aaron Rodgers (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Rodgers played through his calf injury last week, but his mobility was limited throughout the game. His status isn't in doubt for Sunday's NFC North championship. With the Packers playing for a first-round bye, Rodgers is safe to use in DFS leagues.
Dec 24 - 2:43 PM

Aaron Rodgers (calf) participated in Tuesday's practice.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein, Rodgers wasn't going "full speed," but he's very much on track to suit up for Sunday's NFC North championship game against the Lions. With the Pack playing for a first-round bye, Rodgers can be trusted in DFS leagues.
Dec 23 - 1:29 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers was "very upbeat and positive about" his strained calf Monday.

Rodgers' calf pull isn't overly serious, but it was bad enough that McCarthy had to scrap some bootlegs and movement plays during Sunday's win at Tampa. Although the MVP candidate remains sore, Rodgers should be closer to 100 percent once Sunday's showdown with the Lions rolls around.
Dec 23 - 10:32 AM

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Eddie Lacy (leg) is "fine."

Lacy was rested late in Sunday's easy win over the Bucs with an injury. It was never believed to be serious, and McCarthy confirms that. "I have no concerns about Eddie," said McCarthy. He'll be good for Week 17 against the Lions.
