Looks like the Packers might be running out of wide receivers

October 18th, 2019

The Green Bay Packers' passing game has suffered since Davante Adams left a Week 4 game with a foot injury, but things are getting progressively worse. Fellow wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) have yet to practice this week, and Adams has already been ruled out against the Oakland Raiders. Head coach Matt LaFleur would not commit either way on the two injured receivers but said: “We've got time to see if they'll come around.

Week 7 Running Back DFS Picks: Zeke Elliott worth the risk at his price

October 18th, 2019

Christian McCaffrey is on bye and Alvin Kamara is battling two separate injuries that will likely sideline him this week, but there is always an array of daily fantasy options to consider at the pivotal RB position. As usual, I've weighed a combination of factors — individual talent, offensive line play, key injuries, and defensive matchup — to separate the budget-friendly plays from the salaries not worth paying. Fantasy gamers have learned to target the Cincinnati Bengals this season, and losing both starting corners to injury isn't going to help this reeling defense.

Packers rule Adams out, other WRs iffy versus Oakland

October 18th, 2019

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are set to take on the Oakland Raiders without top wide receiver Davante Adams. Adams remains sidelined by a painful turf toe injury after missing wins over the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions the past two weeks.

The Sunday game between the Green Bay Packers and the visiting Oakland Raiders could be decided by which quarterback can make the most out of his suspect receivers corps.

Aaron Rodgers made it work anyway.

Chiefs QB Mahomes (knee) to miss limited time

October 18th, 2019

An MRI exam confirmed Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap in Thursday night's game against the Denver Broncos, but he sustained no other significant damage, according to multiple reports on Friday. ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing league sources, tweeted that the MRI result was a "best-case scenario." That means a limited absence for the reigning league Most Valuable Player of "about three games," Schefter reported. With his team up 13-6 and facing a fourth-and-1 at the Denver 5-yard line with 10 minutes left in the second quarter, Mahomes ran a sneak to convert the first down.
