John Crockett will compete for a roster spot with the Packers this summer, but barring injuries to players in front of him, he'll likely work on special teams and otherwise provide depth. That won't lead to many Fantasy points, so he shouldn't hit your Fantasy radar.
Crockett (shoulder) signed with the Raiders on Friday. Crockett joins Oakland after spending his first two years with the Packers. Although the undrafted tailback rushed nine times for 21 yards as a rookie, he spent the entirety of last season on Green Bay's injured/reserve list. The former North Dakota State standout will now hope to latch on with the Raiders by impressing during training camp.
Crockett (shoulder) is an unrestricted free agent after not receiving a free agent tender from the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. Crockett spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve due to his shoulder injury. He has only nine career rushing attempts and isn't likely to have much of a role with any team in 2017.
Crockett (shoulder) has been placed on IR by the Packers. 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.
Crockett (shoulder) is not expected to be ready for Week 1, ESPN.com reports. Expected to open the season as Green Bay's No. 3 running back, Crockett may instead land on injured reserve. Undrafted rookie Brandon Burks is the obvious roster replacement, though he probably can't match Crockett's expected contribution on special teams.
Crockett left Friday's preseason game against the 49ers with a shoulder injury. Prior to his early exit, Crockett operated as the clear No. 3 running back, taking 13 carries for 46 yards while playing ahead of Brandon Burks and Brandon Ross. The 2015 UDFA should still have a spot on the team, but if he isn't ready for Week 1, the Packers will likely retain Burks or Ross on the final roster.
