Report: Packers guard T.J. Lang avoids serious ankle injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Packers guard T.J. Lang avoided major structural damage to his injured left ankle and will not need surgery, a source told ESPN. However, the Packers won't know if Lang will be ready for the team's next game Nov. 9 against the Bears until after their Week 9 bye.

"Not sure about a timetable yet," the source said.

Lang's injury has been diagnosed as a sprain. He was injured early in Sunday's 44-23 loss against the Saints.

Packers 'very confident' about Aaron Rodgers' status
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the team's medical staff feels "very confident" about the health of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who strained his hamstring in Sunday's loss at New Orleans, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. With Green Bay on a Week 9 bye, Rodgers is not expected to miss any time.

"So far, so good I would say is how we're looking at it," McCarthy said.

Offensive coordinator Tom Clements told the paper the injury eliminated "designed quarterback movement plays" but added he did not need to "revamp the whole plan."

Davante Adams makes other Packers less predictable
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For the second time in three games, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams went for more than 70 yards, contributing 75 on seven catches Week 8 at New Orleans. He also tied for the team lead in targets with nine.

The trouble for Fantasy owners is that this production came at the expense of star wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who had just 25 yards on three catches. Randall Cobb still had 126 yards on five catches, so Adams didn't intrude on everyone, but it doesn't change the fact that on a day when Aaron Rodgers threw for a season-high 418 yards, the Packers' top wide receiver wasn't really involved.

Adams clearly isn't going away, which is great news for owners in deeper leagues where even third wide receivers have value. But he may prove to be a pest for Nelson and Cobb owners.

You're starting Nelson and Cobb in Fantasy regardless, but don't freak out when they have a game like Nelson had Sunday.

Eddie Lacy reclaims missing skill
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Part of what made Eddie Lacy the fifth running back selected on Draft Day is that he wasn't a complete non-factor in the passing game. In fact, he had four games as a rookie in 2013 in which he had at least four catches.

But in seven games to begin 2014, he had no more than three catches, averaging 1.9 per game.

That all changed Week 8 at New Orleans, when Lacy led the Packers with eight catches for 123 yards. His nine targets also tied for the team lead. He was effective rushing the ball as well, but he got only 13 carries with the Packers in comeback mode for most of the second half.

Backup running back James Starks was active for the game but was limited in practice leading up to it by an ankle injury, which may have had something to do with Lacy's increased role in the passing game. Starks typically spells Lacy in certain situations, but he got only two carries and one target in this one.

If Lacy can remain involved in the passing game going forward, he'll go from being a mild disappointment in Fantasy to something of a bargain.

Packers get Saints at their best
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Packers, who were coming off a stretch of five games in which they allowed an average of 17.4 points on 365.6 yards, weren't as effective on the defensive side of the ball in Week 8. Of course, they were facing the Saints in New Orleans, but that hasn't been the kiss death this year that it had been in past years.

The Saints woke up in this one, though, scoring 44 points on 495 yards. The Packers did record two sacks and recover a fumble, but they went without an interception after having nine during that five-game stretch.

This performance doesn't ruin the Packers DST in Fantasy. Obviously, it won't face an offense as good as the Saints' every week. But it shows it's less than an every-week option in Fantasy.

The Packers have a bye in Week 9 before returning home to face the Bears in Week 10.
