Fantasy Sports Locker Room:
Week 7 Injury Report James Jones – Questionable: For a team that loves a three-wideout package, the Packers suddenly likely find themselves down two. It’s hard to imagine that Jones is out there on Sunday, and Cobb is done until very late in the year at best. Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin are likely to see a sharp uptick in targets against the Browns. Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon – Questionable: Despite getting the 50/50 status for Sunday, it seems as though both of the Jags outside weapons will be available. Blackmon just feasted on targets and yards last week when Shorts went down early with injury, and he remains the less likely of the two to suit up. Apparently the Jags will let him decide himself if he’s good enough to go, and nine out of ten football players will do everything in their power to get back on the field. Expect both to suit up. Running Backs Steven Jackson – Out: This one is bad news for SJax owners. The resounding plan seemed to be that he would be on the field by week 7, coming off the bye. Yet week 7 is upon us and he’s yet to take the field. Anticipate a lot of Jaquizz this weekend. C.J. Spiller – Probable: The good news for Spillers owners is that he seems like he’s destined to be on the field on Sunday and by his own accounts earlier in the week he’s feeling improvement. The bad news is he continues to be in a timeshare that was presumably a thing of the past and has been underproductive in it all year (as compared to his pre-season ADP, at least). Jonathan Stewart – Out: J-Stew will still be sidelined and hasn’t reached the 53-man roster yet, but there’s good signs that he’s inching closer to returning (perhaps even as early as week 9). Tough situation, that Carolina backfield, but if you’ve got some duds on your bench now may be the time to try to grab Stewart in the event the cards fall in his favor. DeMarco Murray – Doubtful: One of two important DeMarc’s the Cowboys lost last weekend, Murray seems like he probably won’t be sidelined as long as Ware. Although he didn’t practice all week, his injury is just believed to be a strain and I’m sure the ‘Boys are hopeful he’ll be out there in short order. Joseph Randle will handle duties in his place. Arian Foster – Probable: Man if only this dude played for a team that was interested in scoring touchdowns. Wow. He continues to post just enormous numbers and should see very heavy volume this week (although it’s a rough matchup). No real concern about his playing. Adrian Peterson – Probable: Peterson was limited Thursday and held out Friday, but is mostly anticipated out there on MNF. It’s a tough spot to have a backup plan for Monday Night, so his owners and those relying on his presence will be kept waiting. Brandon Jacobs – Questionable: Things aren’t so deep behind Jacobs on the Giants’ depth chart so surely they must be hoping he could play. After being limited the past two days word has surfaced that he’s been held out of practice today, which compounded with his playing Monday Night surely must have those relying on him concerned. Zac Stacy – Probable: Carolina boasts a very decent run defense, so even if (when) Stacy suits up on Sunday he’s going to have his work cut out for him. He’s posted reasonably respectable numbers through two weeks, but has yet to find his way to the endzone which is where fantasy winners are made. Might be better riding the pine this week if you’ve got another acceptable option. Joique Bell – Questionable: Since Reggie’s return from a brief injury Bell has been mostly quite limited within the Lions’ offense. He’s noted that he’s experiencing a lot of pain, so even if he finds his way to the field there’s a pretty low floor and low ceiling on Joique this week. Jason Snelling – Probable: Snelling is practicing full go and has been cleared after being concussed. He’s likely going to dig into Rodgers’ touches just enough to make neither of them particularly valuable. Willis McGahee – Probable: Much like the rest of the year – who knows what’s going on in Cleveland?!? He looks like the feature back one week, nearly absent the next. His numbers have been pretty paltry since the Browns grabbed him, and he’s likely not startable when you consider that he’s not guaranteed a full workload and has been dealing with injury. Wide Receivers Roddy White – Out: For the first time in his NFL career, Roddy White is going to be on the sidelines for an entire game. There’s a lot to like about a team that bombs it out as much as the Falcons do, and with Julio Jones done for the year White is probably worth trying to hold onto. At this point, however, White has been struggling with the high ankle sprain and now has a hamstring strain to add to the mix of awful injuries for wideouts to suffer. Calvin Johnson – Probable: Megatron practiced all week and seems to have quickly returned himself to nearly 100%. He’s unsittable and he should have a decent opportunity to put up some points as the Lions surely must be missing him the past few weeks. Steve Johnson – Probable: Rough situation here for Johnson owners. He’s shown flashes of being Stevie of old throughout the year, but has also laid a few serious eggs. This week he’s against a tough defense, and has (presumably) Thad Lewis tossing him the ball – a duo that we have very little knowledge of concerning their chemistry. If they’re not on the same page, Johnson may be primed for another dud. Andre Johnson – Probable: Despite it being Case Keenum throwing him the football, gotta think that he’s in line for a lot of targets on Sunday. Much like Arian, tough matchup, and on a team with no interest in scoring, but the volume should be there and he’ll be on the field to receive it. Mike Williams – Questionable: When he finds the endzone he usually can put up enough points to warrant WR3/Flex consideration, otherwise he’s a bit of bust. It’s a risky play week in and week out. For those of you that own him, however, it seems he’s on pace to get back into the mix this week. Danny Amendola – Out: The Patriots’ prized offseason acquisition of Amendola has spent more like on the sidelines than the field, and anyone who saw the knock he took last week knows that’s going to remain the case for quite some time to come. Amendola’s concussion has him considered week to week, and it was particularly ugly. I’d be shocked if we saw him again before week 10. Miles Austin – Probable: Miles spent the latter part of the week held out of practice. Last week he had four targets and zero receptions against a paltry Redskins team that gives up points upon points – this week he has another cakewalk… and I don’t trust him to produce. The Ball is being spread around in Dallas and this guy is too big to a risk to have in your lineup. Julian Edelman – Questionable: Last time they faced the Jets, Julian was a PPR monster with 13 snags although he was held out of the endzone. He probably won’t repeat those numbers, but he’s likely to be heavily involved in an Amendola-less wideout corps again on Sunday. Eddie Royal – Questionable: There will be no Eddie Royal on Sunday, jacking the value of Keenan Allen significantly. Remember that time that Royal posted 114 yards and 5 touchdowns in the first two weeks? Well, in the four weeks since then he’s 106 total yards and 0 touchdowns. Bench, drop, move on. Tight Ends Rob Gronkowski – Questionable: The fantasy tight end monster is returning this week, despite the tag. He’s been given medical clearance, and with all the problems the Patriots have had with their offense this year it would be an absolute shocker to see him held out for any reason at all. Martellus Bennett – Questionable: Bennett is good for 50+ yards on a week in an out basis but seems to have lost the eye of Jay Cutler in the endzone. He played as a questionable TE in week 6 – ten days ago – and he’ll likely be out there again on Sunday. Vernon Davis – Probable: Last time VD was on the field he had 8 catches, 180 yards, and two touchdowns. And then he practiced without limitation this week. Hard to imagine that he doesn’t feast again on Sunday in a matchup against Tennessee. Greg Olsen – Probable: I went out last week and talked this guy up and all he did was deliver both (a) easily his worst fantasy game of the year, and (b) a game that many TE3s could replicate by accident. He’s playing though and perhaps will get back on track this week. The post From the Locker Room to the Training Room: Week 7 Injury Report appeared first on Fantasy Sports Locker Room.

Packers receiver James Jones, diagnosed with a sprained PCL in his left knee, missed practice again on Friday and is extremely doubtful for Sunday's game.Fantasy Spin:That would leave the receiving duties to Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and Jermichael Finley.

One week after a rough outing at Baltimore, Jarrett Boykin helped replace James Jones and Randall Cobb and had a career day to help propel the Packers past the Browns.
The Packers will hope that the 50-plus hours until kickoff will get Mike Neal and James Jones ready to face Cleveland on Sunday. For Neal, it's the same shoulder that cost him 2010, though he said he's a game-time decision. Plus injury reports and more from Friday at Lambeau Field.
