Christine Michael rushed nine times for 19 yards Week 13 against the Texans.

Michael opened up with a solid seven-yard run on his first action in the second quarter, and he converted a fourth-and-short later in the same drive. Michael was much quieter in the second half, gaining just one yard on four carries, but he seemed to jump James Starks in the pecking order. Both Starks and Michael look like inferior options to Ty Montgomery, however, and it is impossible to know how the workload will be split moving forward. Michael is not trustworthy enough to use against the Seahawks in the first round of the fantasy playoffs.
Dec 4 - 4:34 PM

Jared Cook caught 3-of-4 targets for 19 yards Week 13 against the Texans.

Cook came out of the gate hot, catching two quick passes including a third-down conversion on the first drive, but that was the extent of his contributions until the fourth quarter. Cook will have some big games in this offense, but he is impossible to trust week to week. He can be left on the wire.
Dec 4 - 4:26 PM

Randall Cobb hauled in all three of his targets for 19 yards and a touchdown Week 13 against the Texans.

Cobb was not asked to do much of anything, but he did save his fantasy owners with a nine-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Aaron Rodgers was able to escape pressure to his left on the play, and Cobb did a good job to find space in the end zone for the score. It was his fourth touchdown of the season but his first since Week 9. He also has recorded 41 yards or fewer in three of his last four games. With Davante Adams vacuuming up targets, Cobb has become a low-floor WR3. He certainly will not be a must-start next week against the Seahawks.
Dec 4 - 4:24 PM

Davante Adams caught 1-of-7 targets for 17 yards Week 13 against the Texans.

Adams had some chances in this game, but he was only able to come down with one of them. That catch was a disappointment as well, as Adams just stepped out of bounds before running over several would-be tacklers for another 30 yards. Adams also dropped what would have been a long gain down the sideline and was overthrown deep down the field in the first half. Overall it was a very disappointing game, but Adams still was second on the team with seven targets and should avoid Richard Sherman on most of the snaps next week. Despite the bad day, Adams will remain a solid WR2 against Seattle.
Dec 4 - 4:22 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 8-of-10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown Week 13 against the Texans.

Nelson was the focal point of the passing game all day. With the offense focusing on short passes early, Nelson racked up five catches for 37 yards in the first half, but he got it going down the field after the break. His first long catch was a 32-yard touchdown where he was left all alone in the end zone. He also hauled in a deep pass down the right sideline in the fourth quarter, and he went over Kareem Jackson for a third-down conversion on the final touchdown drive. Still the No. 1 receiver even with Davante Adams surging, Nelson will remain a WR2 even with the Seahawks and Richard Sherman coming to town next week.
Dec 4 - 4:20 PM

Ty Montgomery rushed six times for 40 yards and caught 2-of-3 passes for 16 yards Week 13 against the Texans.

Montgomery might not be fully healthy, but he is clearly the Packers’ best backfield option. Finally given the ball late in the win, Montgomery ripped off multiple long runs to help put the game out of reach. That said, Montgomery has clearly been the best option since Eddie Lacy went down, and the Packers have been hesitant to give him the ball even when he has been healthy enough to play. With the Seahawks coming to town and dealing with an uncertain workload, it will be nearly impossible to trust Montgomery in the first round of the fantasy playoffs.
Dec 4 - 4:18 PM

James Starks rushed four times for one yard Week 13 against the Texans.

Starks opened the game as the starter, but he gained just one yard on his first three carries before riding the bench for the entirety of the second quarter. He returned to the lineup to start the second half, but he only saw one more carry. Incredibly inefficient with his work, it looks like Starks has fallen behind both Ty Montgomery and Christine Michael in the pecking order. He will not be worth starting next week against the Seahawks.
Dec 4 - 4:14 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 20-of-30 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 13 win over the Texans.

With the Texans doing nothing outside of a third-quarter drive and a garbage-time touchdown, the Packers were able to run a conservative offense in the snow. That dink-and-dunk approach failed to take advantage of good field position early in the game, but Rodgers capped a short touchdown drive with a nine-yard pass to Randall Cobb in the second quarter. Despite a lingering hamstring injury, Rodgers was able to escape the pocket left before finding Cobb streaking through the end zone. After the Texans tied the game in the third, Rodgers led a 98-yard drive he finished with a 32-yard strike to a wide-open Jordy Nelson. Green Bay added an insurance touchdown on another long drive late. Rodgers did not look completely healthy in this game, but he was able to escape pressure and pick up some chunk gains with his legs. Even with Seattle coming to town, he will remain a QB1 next week.
Dec 4 - 4:13 PM

Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) is officially active for Week 13 against the Texans.

There was never much doubt about his availability, but it is possible Rodgers' mobility is limited. Even so, he is a high-end QB1. Green Bay declared RG T.J. Lang (foot), ILB Blake Martinez (knee), C J.C. Tretter (knee), LB Kyler Fackrell (hamstring), WR Trevor Davis, CB Makinton Dorleant, and DL Christian Ringo inactive for Week 13.
Dec 4 - 11:33 AM

Aaron Rodgers (hamstring, questionable) is expected to play Sunday in Week 13 against the Texans.

Rodgers' status was never in much doubt after putting in a limited week of practice. After getting off to a relatively slow start, Rodgers has gone ballistic over his last six games, contributing 17 touchdowns and only three interceptions during that span. Even at less than 100 percent, he'll be an elite QB1 Sunday against Houston.
Dec 4 - 8:34 AM

Packers activated CB Makinton Dorleant from injured reserve.

It's an expected move. Dorleant has been practicing the last two weeks and will give the Packers secondary depth. Eddie Lacy and Sam Shields are both out for the season.
Dec 3 - 4:51 PM

Packers RG T.J. Lang (foot) has been ruled out for Week 13.

With J.C. Tretter (knee) also sidelined, the Packers will be down two offensive linemen against the Texans. It'd be a bigger concern if Green Bay had a running game. Jason Spriggs should start in Lang's place.

Dec 3 - 3:11 PM

Packers CB Damarious Randall (groin) is questionable for Week 13.

Randall practiced on a limited basis after returning last week. The late addition to the injury report suggests he's a game-time decision. The Packers also downgraded RG T.J. Lang (foot) and JC Tretter (knee) to out against the Texans.

Dec 3 - 2:40 PM

Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) is questionable for Week 13 against the Texans.

He put in a limited week of practice and should be all set for Sunday despite tweaking his hamstring in Week 12. Rodgers is No. 2 in RotoPat's Week 13 quarterback rankings.
Dec 2 - 3:48 PM

Clay Matthews (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Texans.

Matthews was limited in Thursday and Friday's practices. He seems likely to play, but there have been instances this year where Matthews has seemed likely to play, then didn't. Streamers of the Packers' D/ST should want him out there.
