The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Samantha Hernandez reports Packers TE Lance Kendricks faces criminal drug charges.

Kendricks was cited for marijuana possession during a traffic stop in September of last year. He will face discipline from the league once the legal case runs its course.

Aaron Rodgers told reporters he hopes to shed his knee brace following the bye week.

Rodgers came up a bit slowly after one sack on Monday night, but he otherwise has not looked troubled by his injured knee the last couple games, suggesting he is nearing full health. The brace has not been a hindrance for Rodgers, who has thrown for 867 yards with five touchdowns and zero interceptions the last two games.
Oct 16 - 9:47 AM

Equanimeous St. Brown caught his lone target for 19 yards in the Packers' Week 6 win over the 49ers.

He made the target count by making a critical sideline grab on the game-winning field goal drive at the end of the fourth quarter. With Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison expected back after the bye, ESB will go back to the bench.
Oct 16 - 12:45 AM

Ty Montgomery rushed four times for 12 yards and one touchdown in the Packers' Week 6 win over the 49ers.

He added two catches for 10 yards on three targets. Montgomery capped the opening drive with a two-yard touchdown that originally credited as a passing score but later ruled a lateral. Therefore, Montgomery got the "rushing" score. Montgomery doesn't belong on fantasy rosters right now.
Oct 16 - 12:44 AM

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught 3-of-6 targets for 103 yards in the Packers' Week 6 win over the 49ers.

With Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison out again, MVS made another start and was third on the team in targets behind Davante Adams (16) and Jimmy Graham (9). Valdes-Scantling started the Packers' night off with a 60-yard catch-and-run as he was left wide open down the left side. Ty Montgomery eventually scored three plays later. With the Packers going on a bye, MVS is likely to head back to No. 3 or 4 duties with Allison and Cobb likely to return versus the Rams.
Oct 16 - 12:38 AM

Jamaal Williams rushed six times for 29 yards in the Packers' Week 6 win over the 49ers.

He caught a 10-yard pass on three targets. Pedestrian as they come, Williams is good for a handful of carries for about 30-40 yards per week. Nothing more, nothing less. He's averaged 29.5 yards with no touchdowns the last four games and shouldn't be owned in any format. Aaron Jones started in this one but didn't set the world on fire with his eight carries for 41 yards.
Oct 16 - 12:34 AM

Aaron Jones rushed eight times for 41 yards in the Packers' Week 6 win over the 49ers.

The good news is Jones started for the Packers. His first run was a 16-yard scamper on the game's second play that was initially ruled a 17-yard touchdown before getting reversed. Jones got the call from the one-yard line on the next play but was stuffed for a one-yard loss before Ty Montgomery then scored on second down. Jones was targeted once in the pass game but dropped it, leading to more frustration for him. He's not going to get more looks in the pass game if he does that. Jamaal Williams rushed six times for 29 yards as this thing remains a total timeshare. Jones simply isn't getting enough carries and isn't taking advantage of pass-game spots to be trusted in fantasy lineups ahead of the Packers' Week 8 game against the Rams after the bye.
Oct 16 - 12:24 AM

Jimmy Graham caught 5-of-9 targets for 104 yards in the Packers' Week 6 win over the 49ers.

Graham has seen a combined 21 targets the last two weeks with Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison hurt. He's put the yards on the board, but Graham hasn't found pay dirt in that span. He ran free for a 54-yard gain in the first half of this one and bailed the offense out with a number of tough third-down grabs with Aaron Rodgers in trouble. Graham gets the Rams in Week 8 after the bye and will remain an every-week TE1, even with Cobb and Allison coming back.
Oct 16 - 12:11 AM

Davante Adams caught 10-of-16 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' come-from-behind 33-30, Week 6 win over the 49ers.

Adams has been on a tear the past couple weeks with Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison sidelined with injuries. In the two games, Adams has reeled in 19-of-28 targets for 272 yards and three touchdowns against the Lions and Niners. Things didn't really pop off for him until the second half when Adams scored a 16-yard touchdown to tie the game at 30-30 with 1:55 left. He then made multiple catches on the final drive to get the Packers into field goal range for the win. This all came after he caught a nine-yard TD in the first quarter. Cobb and Allison should be back after the Week 7 bye, but Adams will remain an obvious WR1 the rest of the way.
Oct 15 - 11:54 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 25-of-46 passes for 425 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 33-30, Week 6 comeback win over the 49ers on Monday night.

To borrow the words from ESPN analyst Jason Witten, Rodgers pulled a "rabbit out of his head" in the incredible fourth-quarter comeback. (Yes, Witten said head.) Rodgers and the Packers came out piping hot to open the game, with 60- and 54-yard completions to Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jimmy Graham, respectively. 49ers DC Robert Saleh started dialing up the blitzes the rest of the way, causing Rodgers serious problems much of the second, third, and fourth quarters, but Rodgers turned it up and absolutely diced the Niners in the final two-plus minutes with a 16-yard touchdown strike to Davante Adams to tie the game at 30-30. (Witten used the rabbit reference here.) Rodgers then got the ball back at his own 10-yard line with 1:07 left and threw for 46 yards and added a 21-yard run to give Mason Crosby a walkoff 27-yard field goal for the win. The Packers are now on their bye ahead of a gargantuan Week 8 date in L.A. with the Rams.
Oct 15 - 11:27 PM

Packers declared WR Randall Cobb, WR Geronimo Allison, CB Jaire Alexander, CB Bashaud Breeland, QB Tim Boyle, OG Alex Light, and OT Jason Spriggs inactive Week 6 against the 49ers.

The Packers are really banged up. All three of Allison, Cobb, and Breeland have hamstring injuries, while No. 1 CB Alexander remains out with a groin issue.
Oct 15 - 6:49 PM

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are inactive for Week 6 against the 49ers on Monday night.

Allison figured to have the best chance to return this week, but he shed his concussion only to come down with a hamstring issue. With both vets out, it'll again be rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown likely benefitting most in three-wide sets behind Davante Adams. Both rookies have been well ahead of fellow rookie J'Mon Moore on the depth chart.
Oct 15 - 6:47 PM

ESPN's Lisa Salters reports Randall Cobb (hamstring) is expected to be inactive for Monday's game against the 49ers.

With Geronimo Allison also expected to sit, it means Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown and J'Mon Moore will once again back up Davante Adams. This will be Cobb's third-straight absence. He was playing poorly before going down. The Pack are on bye for Week 7. We would assume Cobb will finally be ready to return against the Rams in Week 8.
Oct 15 - 2:57 PM

ESPN's Lisa Salters reports Geronimo Allison (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are expected to remain sidelined for Monday's game against the 49ers.

It means Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown and J'Mon Moore will ride again behind Davante Adams. The absence will be Allison's second straight. The Packers are on bye for Week 7, so hopefully Allison will be ready to roll against the Rams in Week 8. Valdes-Scantling is a plug-and-play WR3 for Week 6.
Oct 15 - 2:55 PM

Packers RG Justin McCray (shoulder) is questionable for Week 6 against the 49ers.

McCray has missed the last two games because of a shoulder injury, but he looks ready to go following full practices on Friday and Saturday. Byron Bell will head back to the bench.
