Amos set season highs with nine total tackles and seven solo stops and also added an interception in Sunday's victory over the Bears.
Amos made a lot of plays against his former team and snuffed out any lingering hope the Bears had to win the game by picking off a Mitch Trubisky pass with just over three minutes to go in the contest. Amos made far more of an impact in the second half of the season than the first, as after tallying 35 tackles (27 solo), one pass deflection and no interceptions over the first eight games, he racked up 48 tackles (39 solo), eight deflections and two interceptions over his final eight appearances.
Amos totaled seven tackles (six solo), a sack and three pass breakups in Saturday's 24-16 win over the Panthers.
Amos put together a dominant showing in Saturday's win, impressing all over the field and specifically in coverage. The hard-hitting safety consistently jars the ball out of opposing pass-catchers' hands, adding another dimension to a strong secondary. Amos is up to 69 tackles, two sacks and seven pass breakups this season. He'll face a tough test with Derrick Henry and the Titans coming to town in Week 16.
Amos had seven tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 41-25 win over the Bears.
The 27-year-old tied for the team lead in tackles with Raven Greene, as he equaled his season high for the third time. Amos has played every defensive snap in all but two games for the Packers this season, but his modest tackle numbers (4.6 per game) limit his IDP value.
Amos registered two tackles, (two solo), one pass defensed and an interception in Sunday's 24-20 victory over the Jaguars.
Amos collected just two tackles in the win, his lowest mark since Week 2 against Detroit, but he came up with a key interception near the end of the first half that resulted in three points for Green Bay. The veteran safety has recorded 37 tackles (29 solo), two passes defensed and a recovered fumble over nine games this year.
Amos recorded eight tackles (six solo) and a tackle for loss Sunday against the Vikings.
Amos has tallied 14 total tackles over his last two contests, including one sack and one fumble recovery. He hasn't missed a defensive snap since Week 2 against Detroit.
Amos recorded six total tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 35-20 win against the Texans.
The veteran safety now has exactly one sack in three consecutive seasons, as well as a fumble recovery in four of the past five years. Green Bay sits at just 19th in scoring defense, however, and Amos has contributed to that subpar rating with his struggles in pass coverage. He's allowing 15.6 yards per completion this season with two passing TDs surrendered, after holding opponents under 12 YPC the past two seasons (with just three TDs allowed in 32 combined appearances).
Amos recorded five tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 37-30 win over the Saints.
It's been a bit of a slow start for Amos in the tackling department, as he's recorded just 10 stops through three games after averaging 5.3 per contest last season. This is due more to scheme than Amos' performance, though, as the linebackers are piling up tackles at the second level. His IDP outlook isn't dependable as a result, though.
Amos (pectoral) said Wednesday that he didn't require offseason surgery and is now 100 percent healthy, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
The 27-year-old was limited to 31 defensive snaps during the NFC Championship Game in San Francisco due to the injury, but he's fully recovered over the past few months. Amos led the Packers in defensive snaps during his first year with the team, recording 84 tackles (68 solo), one sack, two interceptions and eight passes breakups. He's poised to play a similarly heavy role in the secondary again in 2020.
Amos (pectoral) started all 16 regular-season games in his first season with the Packers and recorded a career-high 84 tackles (68 solo), two interceptions, a sack, and eight pass deflections.
Amos was the steady safety the Packers expected him to be when they signed him to a four-year deal last offseason, leading all defenders in snaps played (99.6 percent) and finishing second on the team in tackles. The extent of the pectoral injury he suffered in the NFC Championship Game is not yet known, but assuming he is not dealing with something particularly serious, he will be locked in as the Packers' starting strong safety when the 2020 season gets underway.
Amos exited Sunday's NFC Championship game against the 49ers due to a pectoral injury, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Amos, who won't return to the contest, was injured in the second quarter while making a tackle on San Francisco running back Tevin Coleman, who has been ruled out with a shoulder injury in turn. In his stead, Will Redmond will likely start at strong safety for Green Bay.
Amos had seven tackles (six solo), an interception, two pass deflections and a sack in Sunday's victory over Washington.
It was a big day for Amos, whose stat line Sunday gave him a career-high 74 tackles and also allowed him to tie his career highs in both sacks and interceptions. Amos has been an iron man in his first season with the Packers, playing all but four snaps in a blowout victory through 14 games.
Amos (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Amos surfaced on the injury report Wednesday and missed the first two practices of the week, but he managed to make a quick recovery. He's an every-snap player when fully healthy, so there's a slight chance his reps are capped. Amos has 50 tackles (41 solo), four pass breakups and an interception over nine contests.
Amos (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's bout against the Panthers.
Amos sat out the week's first two practices, but he managed to upgrade to a limited session Friday. The starting safety appears to have a fair shot at playing through his hamstring injury Week 10. Will Redmond figures to draw the start at strong safety in the event that Amos is unable to go.
Amos (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Olivia Reiner of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Amos completed a workout off to the side and didn't wear pads, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, but this is the second consecutive day he's been listed as DNP on the injury report. He's an every-snap player when healthy, and if he's ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Will Redmond figures to be the main beneficiary.
Amos (hamstring) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.
Amos appears to have picked up a hamstring issue during Sunday's 26-11 loss to the Chargers. The 26-year-old has played 100 percent of snaps on defense in eight of nine contests this season, the only exception being Week 7 versus Oakland when he played 94 percent of the snaps. If Amos was forced to miss any time, Will Redmond would be the favorite to start at strong safety.
Amos finished Sunday's 42-24 win over the Raiders with eight tackles (six solo) and a pair of pass deflections.
Amos is up to 39 tackles this season after collecting a season-high eight in the win over Oakland. The 26-year-old has certainly made an impact player in Green Bay's secondary, but with only one interception through seven weeks, Amos' fantasy value isn't as high as it could be.
Amos had seven tackles (five solo) during Thursday's 34-27 loss to the Eagles.
It's the second straight contest with seven tackles for Amos, as the Packers once again struggled up front to defend the run. The veteran safety has 23 tackles (19 solo) and an interception through four games while playing every defensive snap.
Amos had five tackles (four solo) and a game-sealing interception in Thursday's victory over the Bears.
The Bears had a chance to tie Thursday's game late in the fourth quarter, but Amos effectively shut the door on his former team by picking off a Mitchell Trubisky pass in the end zone with just under two minutes to play. Amos was on the field for every defensive snap in his first game with his new squad, which comes as no surprise, given that he was on the field for 97.8 percent of the Bears' defensive snaps a year ago.
Amos will sign with the Packers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Green Bay has been unusually active at the top of the market, first signing OLB Za'Darius Smith away from Baltimore and luring Amos away from the division-rival Bears. The 2015 fifth-round pick started 56 of 60 games during his four years in Chicago, recording at least 62 tackles each season. Amos had career-high marks in a number of categories in 2018, including tackles (73), passes defensed (nine) and interceptions (two). His consistent work in coverage should be massively helpful to a Green Bay defense that's become accustomed to shaky play on the back end.
Amos registered five tackles in Chicago's Week 17 win over the Vikings to wrap up the season with 73 tackles, a sack and two interceptions.
Although Amos set a career high with 73 tackles, he's posted at least 65 in each of his four years with the Bears, making him a steady fantasy option. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and assuming he continues in a starting role, should continue to be a slightly above average IDP at the safety position.
