Packers' Blake Martinez: Lands with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Giants on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Martinez finished near the top of the league in tackles over the past three seasons, amassing 443 total tackles while playing in all 48 regular-season contests for the Packers. According to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio, it's a three-year deal worth about $30 million.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Leads squad in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez, who posted 19 tackles between two playoff contests, recorded 155 tackles, three sacks and two pass breakups over 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Martinez led the Packers in regular-season tackles, ranking second in the league behind Bobby Wagner, and he followed suit in the postseason. The Stanford product's rookie contract will expire in March, and he'll be an unrestricted free agent. There's no telling if the Packers will retain him, but if they choose to let him walk, they'll need to bring in a new starter either through free agency or the draft because neither Oren Burks nor Ty Summers looks ready to assume that role.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez had seven tackles (six solo), a sack and an interception in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Martinez made plays all over the field Sunday and helped the Packers pick up a victory that gave them a first-round bye. Martinez will play a key role against whomever the Packers face in the divisional round on Jan. 12.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Another productive outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez registered eight tackles during Monday's victory over Minnesota.

Showing little signs of either a hand or calf injury, Martinez played a big role in limiting the Vikings to a season-low seven first downs, which was actually the fewest Minnesota has totaled in a game in years. Again notching more than a handful of tackles along the way, Martinez is now up to a career-high 148 tackles on the year, and a strong performance in Sunday's season finale against a reeling Lions offense could earn the Stanford product his first career crown as the league's outright leading tackler.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (hand/calf) is absent from the Packers' final injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Vikings.

Martinez was limited during the Packers' fist two practices this week, but he took on a full workload Saturday. Barring any setbacks, the NFL's leading tackler is in line to make his 15th start this season.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (hand/calf) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Martinez is nursing both hand and calf injuries, but it doesn't yet appear as though his availability for Monday's divisional tilt against the Vikings is in any danger. The 25-year-old linebacker has recorded double-digit tackles in three straight contests, and he'll look to keep that momentum up Week 16.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Stacks up 11 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez made 11 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 21-13 win over the Bears.

Martinez reclaimed the league lead with 140 tackles, barely ahead of Bobby Wagner's (ankle) 139. The 25-year-old linebacker is essentially a lock to set a new career high -- his current best is 144 -- and he'll look to achieve the feat in Week 16 against the Vikings.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Logs double-digit tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez made 10 tackles (five solo) and broke up a pass in Sunday's win over Washington.

It was Martinez's second-straight game with 10 tackles and seventh with at least that many on the season. On the other hand, it was the 25-year-old's first pass breakup of the year.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Leads Pack in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) across 59 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Martinez now has 118 tackles on the year, with the next-highest Packer more than 50 tackles behind (Adrian Amos with 67 tackles). The 25-year-old linebacker will look to add to his total next Sunday when the Redskins head to Lambeau.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Records second sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez made six tackles (four solo) and logged a sack in Sunday's 37-8 loss to the 49ers.

The sack was Martinez's first since Week 1. While he doesn't make a ton of big plays, the Stanford product more than makes up for it with huge tackle totals. He has 108 on the year and is on pace to break his career-high 144 that he's tallied in back-to-back seasons.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Accumulates 12 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez tallied 12 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 26-11 loss to the Chargers.

Martinez's lack of explosiveness costed the Packers at times, as Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler ran wild in this contest. However, Martinez still managed his fifth double-digit tackling performance of the year and his 12th since the start of last season. The fourth-year pro leads the league with 95 total stops, so he continues to be a top-tier IDP asset.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (hand/shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Martinez was limited in Wednesday's walkthrough practice, but he's already managed to resume working without limitations. The 25-year-old played with a club on his fractured right hand Week 8, and he could utilize the same accommodations Sunday against the Chargers.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Limited participant at walkthrough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (hand/shoulder) was a listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's walkthrough.

Martinez fractured his right hand last week and played with a club in Week 8, and he apparently picked up the shoulder injury in the contest. The fact the 25-year-old was still estimated to practice in some capacity indicates he isn't in serious danger of missing Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Has broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is playing through a fractured right hand, Josh Moser of Fox 11 Green Bay reports.

Martinez picked up the injury in practice last week, hence the reason he wore a club on his right hand Sunday in Kansas City. He still managed to post seven tackles and play all 59 defensive snaps, so his status as a top-flight IDP remains intact. Martinez expects to wear the club for two more game days before ditching it entirely after the Packers' Week 11 bye.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Active for SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Martinez (wrist/hand) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

It was concerning when the NFL's leading tackler was a late addition to the injury report Saturday, but all is fine with the Packers' inside linebacker. He'll seek to add to the 76 tackles he has through seven games, as the Chiefs will start their first game since 2017 without Patrick Mahomes (knee).

Packers' Blake Martinez: Optimistic for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (wrist) is expected to play in Sunday's game against Kansas City barring a setback, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The NFL's leading tackler was added to the injury report Saturday with a wrist/hand injury, causing some concern about his status. As evidenced by this news, it's likely Martinez will play, but wait for an official word prior to Sunday's 8:20 ET kickoff. Should a setback occur, Ty Summers would be in line for the start and a huge workload at inside linebacker.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (wrist/hand) was added to the injury report Saturday with a questionable designation for Sunday's prime-time contest against the Chiefs.

Martinez was a full participant in practice all week with a listed wrist issue, but the Saturday change to include a hand injury might be problematic for the team's leading tackler. Fantasy owners will want to monitor his status leading up to Sunday's 8:20pm ET kickoff.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Racks up 16 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez had 16 tackles (eight solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Martinez struggled in coverage for much of the afternoon but still managed to put forth his highest tackle total of his career. The forced fumble was a crucial one, as he knocked the ball loose from Derek Carr and it went out of the endzone for a touchback. The 25-year-old leads the NFL with 76 tackles (48 solo) and has one sack and one forced fumble through seven games.

Packers' Blake Martinez: Ready for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Martinez was added to the injury report as a limited participant Wednesday but never appeared to be in any real danger of missing Sunday's game. The 25-year-old has played every defensive snap this season and ranks third in the league with 47 tackles (33 solo) and one sack.
