Randall took some lumps from Oakland's Amari Cooper on Sunday, but he was productive in the fantasy department thanks to the pick-six -- the first of his career. Randall is up to 51 tackles (46 solo) and three interceptions 13 games into his rookie season.
Adams' stat line could have looked much prettier had he not been the victim of multiple pass interference penalties, including one in the end zone off a bomb from QB Aaron Rodgers. Furthermore, the entire Packers offense appear out of sync, leading to depressed stat lines across the board for Green Bay skill position players. Fortunately, Adams and the rest of his team will have a chance to improve next week against the Lions.
Similar to the rest of the Packers' offense, Starks was completely bottled up on Sunday, posting an abysmal 0.4 YPC. However, that number is especially worrisome when considering his teammate Eddie Lacy managed an average of 4.2. On the bright side, Starks will have an opportune chance to rebound Week 3 against a Lions' defense that was whittled to just two healthy linebackers Week 2.
Bulaga has been a limited participant in practice all week -- a good sign considering he hasn't been able to take the field since Week 1 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus. That being said, no official word has been announced regarding his status for Week 5, likely making him a game-time decision against the Rams.
If he's ultimately unable to play, Julius Peppers projects to start at outside linebacker as starter Clay Matthews (ankle/hamstring) has been ruled out.
Waters spent all of training camp with the Packers after signing as an undrafted free agent, but he faced long odds to make the cut given the team's depth at his position, and ended up on the outside looking in. He is a candidate for the practice squad, however.
Clark sat out the Packers' final two preseason games, but he believes his back injury will not prevent him from being available for Week 1. Clark missed out on some key reps the last couple weeks, but the Packers will likely count on their first-round pick to be part of the defensive line rotation.
Selected in the fourth round of this year's draft, Martinez has seen extensive work with Green Bay's starting unit in each of the team's base, nickel and dime defenses throughout the team's offseason program. Most significant is the rookie's deployment in dime packages, as he is the lone inside linebacker on the field in such a scenario. However, the pads have yet to come on, and Martinez still needs to prove his mettle both within the trenches and as a tackler in order secure the starting job in advance of the regular season.
Previously considered questionable to play, Guion participated in the Packers' practice on Saturday, but the coaching staff must not have been encouraged by the health of his knee. However, he wasn't expected to be ready anyway after sustaining a sprained MCL in Week 2.
Shields visited a concussion specialist at some point this week, but it's not clear if that had any effect on his status. He will need to be cleared of any concussion symptoms before returning to practice, and will likely need to get in some practice time before returning to game action.
Abbrederis' opportunities to contribute Sunday were almost nil, as he was on the field for just six of the Packers' 71 offensive plays. That paced him fourth among Packers receivers, but a distant fourth, as No. 3 receiver Davante Adams saw more targets -- seven -- than Abbrederis did snaps.
Davis did not make any fantasy impact Sunday, but the rookie did total the fifth most snaps among Packers receivers after being inactive in Week 1 due to a shoulder injury. He should not definitively be considered fifth on the depth chart, however, as two receivers he played over Sunday -- Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis -- will also garner consideration for that spot moving forward.
Allison averaged an impressive 19.8 yards per catch on six receptions this preseason, but there was not room for him on the roster given the Packers' depth at the receive position. Allison was not claimed off waivers, to the Packers figure to look at adding him to the practice squad.
The Vikings' defense harassed QB Aaron Rodgers on Sunday to the tune of five sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception. Consequently, the Packers generated just 213 yards of offense through the air. It figures to be just a matter of time before the Green Bay offense gets back in sync, a la pre-2015, and in such an event, Cobb's numbers would likely look much different than his pair of pedestrian stat lines through two games into 2016. In fact, Cobb owners may not have to wait very long at all for a statistical rebound, as the Packers square off against an injury-depleted Lions defense Week 3.
Montgomery made his presence felt on special teams Sunday night, but he was left on the bench on offense while five other receivers saw action in front of him. The zero snaps were not too far behind the six snaps No. 4 receiver Jared Abbrederis played nor the five plays tallied by No. 5 wideout Trevor Davis, but Montgomery would have to surpass both players on the depth chart -- and also likely No. 3 receiver Davanted Adams -- to even have a chance at making a fantasy impact.
Considering how QB Aaron Rodgers managed just 213 passing yards against a stout Vikings defense, Cooks' forgettable stat line is, well, exactly that. On the bright side, his six targets were right up there with Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, who each received seven, second-most on the team. However, through two games, Cooks has logged just five receptions for 38 receiving yards without reaching the end zone. He isn't entirely to blame for his lack of production, though, but may struggle to post starter-worthy fantasy numbers until the entire Packers offense gets back on track.
The communication between Nelson and Aaron Rodgers has yet to settle on a happy medium, as evidenced by a measly 45 percent catch rate in this contest. Granted, Nelson salvaged his evening with a one-yard touchdown for the game's first score, which came on the heels of a defensive holding call on the wideout from Vikings defensive back Terence Newman. On the other side of the coin, Rodgers clearly expected Nelson to be prepared for certain back-shoulder throws, in particular, that instead fell incomplete. With end-zone visits in back-to-back weeks, it's difficult to be disappointed in Nelson's initial outings following an ACL tear, but his 9.5 YPC to date falls well short of his mark of 15.3 YPC prior to the injury.
With Brett Hundley seemingly entrenched in the backup quarterback role, Callahan figured to be a long shot for making the final roster. However, injuries to Hundley in the preseason gave the 23-year-old rookie an opportunity to impress. He went 53-for-88 and recorded three touchdowns and zero interceptions during the preseason. It is unclear if the Packers intend on going three quarterbacks deep or if they'll let Hundley go. Either move would be considered surprising, the former due to the stability at quarterback with Aaron Rodgers' presence, and the latter due to the hold Hundley appeared to have on the role heading into camp.
Perillo followed up DNPs on Wednesday and Thursday with a limited showing Friday, clearing the way for active status in Week 1. Working behind Jared Cook and Richard Rodgers, Perillo likely won't earn more than a handful of snaps in the opener.
Before getting too excited about the veteran's performance, he's no longer a full-time player, though he obviously has the ability to get to the quarterback. Despite the limited snaps, he'll play in high-leverage situations, making him a candidate for decent sack totals, but almost non-existent as a tackler.
Matthews continues to deal with both ankle and hamstring injuries, and he won't be available for the Packers on Sunday after failing to practice throughout the week. Veteran pass-rusher Julius Peppers figures to see additional time with Matthews sidelined.
The move leaves Brandon Burks and Brandon Ross as the team's depth RB options behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks, though it's possible the team will add backfield help in the coming days, in the wake of Crockett's placement on IR.
Burnett's absence is no surprise after not being able to practice throughout the week due to the groin injury he suffered during the Packers' Week 2 loss to the Vikings. Micah Hyde is next in line to receive extra work at safety with Burnett out.
Ripkowski was inactive for the Packers' third exhibition contest but otherwise saw action in the other three games. He worked in a backup role last year in his rookie season, but with John Kuhn no longer on the roster, he will move into the starting fullback spot for the Packers.
Clinton-Dix tallied 16 tackles through two games in 2015, but has racked up just eight in all in two weeks this season. He averaged over six tackles per game coming into this year, so there is reason to believe he will pick up the pace.
Hyde seems to have fully recovered from his hip injury that kept him sidelined for some parts of last season, but the former starting strong safety finds himself below teammate Morgan Burnett on the depth chart. While Hyde has been productive in the past, his single tackle performance Sunday is nothing to bring home about.
Crosby's production took a big hit after he posted a useful total of nine points in Week 1. He and the Packers will next square off against the Lions, a team he totaled just seven points against over two games in 2015.
Rodgers appears to have taken a backseat to offseason acquisition Jared Cook in 2016, or at least as QB Aaron Rodgers' go-to receiving tight end. Case in point, while both ended up posting similar yardage, Cook garnered three times as many targets (6). Fortunately, Rodgers gets the Lions on deck Week 3, a team he burned for eight catches across eight targets for 146 yards and a touchdown the last time the two teams met.
An undrafted free agent in 2014, Pennel served behind B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion last season, notching one sack among 25 tackles. The Packers have already inked Guion to a three-year deal, and Raji may leave in free agency, leaving more snaps available to Pennel once he fulfills the suspension. However, the preceding is assuming Pennel even lands a spot on the eventual 53-man roster.
Of the 48 official carries for the Packers after two games, Lacy has handled 26 of them, followed by James Starks (11), Aaron Rodgers (seven), and Randall Cobb (four). Such usage is slightly above Lacy's averaged carry count from last season's disappointment, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence that he can replicate his output from the first two years of his career. However, his 4.3 YPC this year matches up almost precisely with his mark as a professional, so if the Packers opt to commit a bit more to the ground game, another 1,000-yard could come to fruition.
Ryan, who battled a hamstring injury for much of camp, took the field for the first time this preseason Thursday. It remains to be seen who the Packers' starting middle linebackers will be, but Ryan is in the next for one of the two spots.
Bradford got a shot to make the team at the middle linebacker position, but the Packers opted to go in a different direction. Bradford still has practice squad eligibility, so the Packers could attempt to bring him back if he clears waivers.
Hundley's ankle injury cost him what would have been quite a few important preseason reps, but it will not prevent him from being available for Week 1. He is set to open the season as the backup quarterback behind starter Aaron Rodgers.
Earlier reports said the Packers tendered Barclay at the lowest level of $1.542 million. He missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL after starting 14 games for the team in 2013.
Thomas is dealing with a lingering back injury that flared up last weekend. However, after missing the Browns' preseason tilt on Thursday, he was able to take part in team drills during Sunday's practice, though the team was not sporting full pads. Thomas could be held out of fully-padded practices for the foreseeable future, but he should be near full-health entering the regular season and set to bookend the left side of the Browns' offensive line come Week 1.
Rodgers and company failed to generate big plays Sunday, making just two plays of over 22 yards, but they committed no turnovers and capitalized on field position to grind out a road win versus an improved Jags team. Rodgers notably connected with Jordy Nelson in the end zone and scored on a six-yard scramble in the first quarter-- two things that have helped him establish an extremely stable floor for production in recent seasons. He will look to build on a strong start next week versus Minnesota.
Sidelined since the third preseason game with a hamstring issue, Elliott will remain a regular DNP until practice is a part of his regimen. When healthy, though, he'll merely serve as a depth pass rusher.
Goodson will be free to participate in all of the Packers' offseason and preseason preparations, but will be forced to miss the first quarter of the upcoming regular season. A depth cornerback that saw more playing time toward the end of last season, Goodson's absence will open the door for teammates to fill his role on defense and special teams.
Cajuste was buried on San Francisco's depth chart, but will likely be a candidate to join the practice squad once he clears waivers.
Tampa Bay decided to go with first-year punter Jacob Schum over the veteran Koenen. The rest of the Bucs' cuts include guard Josh Allen, WR Robert Herron and corner Leonard Johnson. Defensive tackle Akeem Spence was placed on the PUP list.
Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (groin) has been ruled out while linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) is questionable and tackle David Bakhtiari (back) and defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee) are probable.
The only exception is defensive tackle Datone Jones (ankle), who is questionable.
Fackrell is a big and versatile linebacker, standing at 6-foot-5, 245 pounds and with the ability to play either on the edge or off the ball. He's not the most disruptively explosive linebacker, but Fackrell is a smooth athlete who should be able to provide Green Bay with snaps at both inside and outside linebacker.
Lowry is a huge figure and an intriguing 3-4 end prospect for the Packers, standing at 6-foot-6, 296 pounds with standout athleticism for such a big lineman. His athleticism is only average when compared to defensive ends, but when compared to the more similar position of defensive tackle, Lowry grades as an elite athlete.
Perry has battled injuries and bouts of ineffectiveness since he was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. However, he came to life in the Packers' pair of postseason tilts this past season, totaling 3.5 sacks among eight tackles and a forced fumble. If he's able to channel such production over an entire campaign, he could parlay this one-year deal into a big payday. More likely, though, his final defensive snap count will linger around the 33.4 percent he received in 2015.
Like outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott, Banjo has been out of commission since the third preseason game due to a hamstring injury. Once he receives clearance for game action, he'll return to a regular role on special teams.
Janis will be forced to resume his strictly special teams' role for for as long as he is in his cast. The soonest he could return to the mix offensively would be after the team's Week 4 bye. Regardless, the 25-year-old remains relatively buried on the team's receiving depth chart.
In the meantime, rookie Corey Linsley will start at center, starting Thursday at Seattle.
