The wideout has sustained three documented concussions in the last 14 months, with the most recent head injury sidelining him for the final two games of the 2017 campaign. Though Adams' concussion history shouldn't be dismissed entirely, the Packers evidently agreed with the 25-year-old's own assessment of his health in their decision to ink him to a four-year, $58.75 million extension Friday. With Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) set to return from injury next season, Adams, who established himself as the team's clear No. 1 receiver in 2017 with 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns, will once again warrant an early-round selection in fantasy drafts.
Bulaga was shut down in mid-November with the knee injury and has since headed to Florida to continue his rehab. The timing of Bulaga's surgery makes it unlikely that he'll be ready for the start of training camp, but assuming he hits no unexpected snags in his recovery, a Week 1 return could be realistic. It's possible, however, that the Packers proceed more cautiously with Bulaga than most players coming off a similar injury, given that the 28-year-old previously tore an ACL in August 2013.
Waters has been on the Packers' practice squad each of the past two years and could be poised to break onto the active roster in 2018. He'll have a chance to be a backup corner with the team going forward.
Clark is now up to 2.5 sacks and 49 combined stops on the season, with the latter number placing him among the top 20 defensive linemen heading into Week 16.
Martinez took a huge leap in his second year, becoming the Packers' top middle linebacker and increasing his tackle total by 75. He had just one sack and one interception, but he provided a big boost for fantasy owners in leagues where tackles by individual defensive players were key. Following his big season Martinez will remain the Packers' top middle linebacker heading into 2018, and with him turning just 24 in January, he will be a good bet to pile up numbers in the tackle department once again.
Evans, who missed the final two games of the 2017 season with what he described as a knee "contusion," will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year. Playing on a one-year deal with the Packers this past season, the 34-year-old vet finished as Pro Football Focus' 34th-highest-graded offensive guard out of 80 qualifiers.
Davis played a bit role in the Packers' offense, much like he did in his rookie year of 2016, but he did serve as the team's primary return man. His 22.8-yard average on kickoff returns was middle of the pack, but he was among the league's top punt returners, finishing third among qualified players in that category with 12.0 yards per return. Davis' special teams work figures to keep him on the roster heading into training camp, but he is at risk of losing his spot to another receiver who brings more to the table on the offensive side of the ball.
Spriggs' second NFL season was almost entirely spoiled by injuries, with a hamstring tear suffered in the season opener forcing him to spent nine games on injured reserve. He was later designated to return in the second half of the season and started four games at right tackle before dislocating his kneecap on the first drive of the Packers' Week 16 loss to the Vikings. Though he didn't require surgery to address the injury, Spriggs' rehab will span several months and could hurt his chances of earning a roster spot with the Packers during camp.
Taylor hasn't played since injuring his ankle in Week 6. He should now be set to reclaim the starting job at guard from Justin McCray.
After some maneuvering in the receiving corps the last 24 hours, the Packers made the easy decision to keep Allison in the fold. There's little question he won't fill the leadership void left behind by the release of Jordy Nelson, but Allison's usage should increase in three-wide formations alongside Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. As it stands, Allison seems destined to surpass his career-high marks of 23 catches (on 39 targets) for 253 yards from 2017.
Pankey takes the roster spot of defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois, who was waived Wednesday in a corresponding move. Pankey turned in a strong preseason and will provide the Packers with depth at both guard and tackle.
As an exclusive rights free agent, Clark's tendering means that he'll be back in Green Bay in 2018. The young wideout showed flashes of talent late last season which made him somewhat of a priority keepsake this offseason. While it's unclear as of what role Clark will have once September rolls around, the Packers will be playing the roster merry-go-round which could clear things up by the end of the month.
The compensation for 2015 first-round pick Damarious Randall (hand) is a developmental quarterback, which is an apparent need after Brett Hundley was forced into action and more or less disappointed in 2017. Kizer himself retained the starting job in Cleveland for all but one game as a rookie last year, tossing a league-leading 22 interceptions and completing only 54 percent of his passes. Expect Kizer to compete with Brett Hundley for the backup gig behind Aaron Rodgers this offseason.
Seeking extra cap space to sign Jimmy Graham, the Packers unsurprisingly stuck with the 27-year-old Cobb over the 32-year-old Nelson. The veteran slot receiver hasn't sniffed the 1,000-yard mark since signing a four-year, $40 million contract in 2015, but he's maintained a catch rate in the 70-percent range while showing flashes of his top form. There's still potential for another big season if Cobb and Aaron Rodgers can actually stay healthy at the same time for an extended period.
McCray became a major asset once the Packers began their injury parade down the stretch last year. With his strong play, McCray earned himself a tender which will keep him in Green Bay this upcoming season. If the Packers aren't able retain Jahri Evans, McCray would presumably be a starting guard for the season opener.
According to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, first-year Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst essentially echoed McCarthy's sentiments, calling Montgomery a "very, very versatile player" and "a guy we can kind of plug him in where we need him." The comments from the team brass mark a dramatic departure from last offseason, when Montgomery, who entered the NFL in 2015 as a wideout, was labeled a full-time running back after a promising trial at the position in the second half of the 2016 campaign. Montgomery wasn't able to replicate that success, however, upon opening the past season as the Packers' starting back, finishing with just 3.8 yards per carry on 71 totes while missing eight games due to cracked ribs. It's expected that Montgomery will be back to full strength by the time training camp arrives, but the emergence of rookie runners Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams last season means that Montgomery will likely rank no higher than third on the depth chart at running back. For all the difficulties he has had staying healthy during his career, Montgomery remains one of the Packers' top playmakers, so deploying him as more of a hybrid or gadget player could be an effective way to limit his wear and tear while still giving the offense an element of explosiveness.
Biegel missed a good chunk of time after undergoing foot surgery in May, but he was still able to suit up for more than half of the games in his rookie season. The Packers will be hoping he can provide a boost to the team's pass rush in 2018.
Goode was waived from the team's injured reserve earlier this season after suffering a hamstring injury, but now that he's healthy and eligible to rejoin the squad, he'll take back long-snapping duties. Derek Hart, who snapped for the Packers in their last two games, will be cut loose to clear a spot on the 53-man roster for Goode.
House returned to Green Bay after spending two seasons in Jacksonville, and although he played well at certain points, his battles with injuries limited his effectiveness. He previously signed a one-year deal with the Packers, so it remains to be seen if he will spend another year with the team in 2018.
The decision to tender Brown's contract means that Brown will be back in Green Bay next season. While the young cornerback impressed some within the front office late in the year, Brown will have a tough hill to climb if he hopes to crack into the defensive rotation.
Evans barely saw any playing time on defense despite all the injury woes the Packers' secondary endured. Instead, he logged the majority of his snaps on special teams, where he was a mainstay from Week 3 on. With Micah Hyde (shoulder) headed to the open market, Evans figures to have a slight chance of carving out a reserve safety role this summer.
Callahan has spent most of his young career in Green Bay, either on the active roster or practice squad. The Packers will head into offseason activities with four quarterbacks, as Callahan will compete with Deshone Kizer and Brett Hundley for the backup role.
Byrd was promoted from the practice squad for the Packers' season finale, which allowed the rookie to notch the first two receptions of his career. He spent training camp and half of the season with the Packers, so he should get a chance to compete for a roster spot if he returns to Green Bay.
Green Bay has had some interest in Bouagnon for a while now, as they brought him in for a visit prior to the 2017 draft and worked him out again during the regular season when he was a free agent. The Northern Illinois product's career has gotten off to a slow start thus far -- largely due to a knee injury that landed him on the Bears' injured reserve last August -- and he isn't particularly fast (he clocked a 4.66 40-yard dash time at his Pro Day in March off 2017), but he possesses good size (6-foot-2, 228 pounds) for his position and showed he could be productive during his junior year of college when he recorded 1,285 yards and 18 touchdowns on 283 carries across 14 games.
King's rookie campaign was fraught with shoulder dislocations from training camp onward, resulting in his shutdown after Week 12. With six weeks in the rearview mirror from the procedure, the 2017 second-round pick can now focus on locking down a spot opposite Damarious Randall in the starting secondary, depending on how the Packers proceed with roster construction in the offseason.
Kerridge spent about a month with the Packers before being waived earlier in December, but will finish the season on the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old will likely assume a similar role as his first stint with the team, mostly being a contributor on special teams.
Incumbent starter Morgan Burnett signed with the Steelers on Tuesday and Jones doesn't have any serious competition to fill the opening left behind. It won't be a huge transition for Jones considering he saw a lot of playing time as a rookie, and ultimately logged the second-most snaps among Green Bay safeties in 2017 due to Burnett's injuries. However, there's room for his playing time to expand considering Burnett had logged 948 snaps as the clear starter in 2016, which is quite a jump from the 735 snaps Jones logged this past season. Barring an injury of his own, the 2017 second-rounder seems poised to build upon his inaugural stat line of 71 tackles, two sacks, five pass breakups and one interception.
The procedure is being described as a "cleanup," but Matthews hadn't dealt with any reported knee issues this season, so it's an interesting development for the linebacker. Although there doesn't appear to be much concern about his health heading into the 2018 campaign, Matthews could be asked to restructure his contract this offseason, as he's scheduled to make $11.4 million in salary and bonuses. The 31-year-old finished the 2017 season 43 tackles (27 solo), 7.5 sacks and a fumble recovery across 14 outings.
Ripkowski accumulated 196 yards and three touchdowns on 43 touches the season before, so it seemed he would be more involved in the offense in 2017 than he actually was. However, the Packers got better usage out of their running backs than they did the year before, so Ripkowski was limited almost exclusively to blocking duty and special teams work. His reputation made him a first alternate for this year's Pro Bowl, but his 12 touches in 2017 mean he will head into 2018 without any realistic fantasy value.
Rollins was finally seeing some significant snaps in the absence of top corners Davon House (quadriceps) and Kevin King (concussion) on Sunday before suffering what was initially reported as an ankle injury. The injury has since been clarified as an apparently severe Achilles injury, leaving the Packers to hope House and King can return against the Saints in Week 7.
Patrick will suit up after fully participating in practice each day this week but shouldn't see many snaps unless there's an injury on the offensive line.
Brice hurt his ankle in Week 5 against the Cowboys, but it wasn't anything serious and this likely isn't a side effect of that injury. He's a second-string safety, but with Morgan Burnett (hamstring) inactive, he's been called upon for an increased workload. If Brice can't return, expect Josh Jones to log more defensive snaps.
Clinton-Dix's production took a slight step back in 2017, which was a bit of a surprise for a player seemingly on the rise heading into his fourth season. Nevertheless, Clinton-Dix was still an iron man for the Packers, playing over 99 percent of the defensive snaps, and he will be back in his starting free safety spot next season.
Crosby had never scored fewer than 108 points in any of his 11 seasons prior to 2017, but with starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers missing most of the season, the Packers' offense afforded him just 19 field-goal attempts. If Rodgers is healthy for all of 2018 Crosby's opportunities should pick up again, but his down year won't leave him very high on cheat sheets heading into next year's fantasy drafts.
Rodgers was forced out of the Packers' Week 16 game by his shoulder injury, and it turns out the setback will prevent him from suiting up Sunday for the first time in his career. Rodgers came up big for the Packers with 77 yards and a score, but he otherwise totaled just 83 yards and no touchdowns over the other 14 games he played in 2017. It's clear the Packers view him as a depth player after signing Jared Cook and Martellus Bennett the last two offseasons, so it remains to be seen if, as an unrestricted free agent, Rodgers returns to the only team he has played for or seeks a new opportunity elsewhere.
Murphy was placed on injured reserve last week due to the foot injury, and he's just one of a handful of offensive linemen to miss time for the Packers over the past couple of weeks. In his absence, the team signed Ulrick John off the Cardinals' practice squad.
Pepper hurt his foot in practice Thursday. While the details surrounding his injury aren't clear, his placement on IR suggests it could be severe. Green Bay will now move on to its third long snapper of the season in Derek Hart, who was signed Friday after spending time with the Packers over the summer.
Wilkerson's deal with Green Bay was announced on Tuesday but wasn't made official until Thursday. He'll join Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark as the Packers' starting defensive linemen.
Ryan played one more game than he did in 2016, but he fell just one stop short of tying the career-high 82 tackles he put up a year ago. He finished second among Packers inside linebackers in defensive snaps each of the last two seasons, and he figures to get a chance to again be the No. 2 man at his position in 2018.
Though the Packers were shut out for the second time in Hundley's eight starts in Saturday's 16-0 loss to the Vikings, McCarthy noted that a slew of dropped passes from the team's receiving corps contributed to the signal caller's demise. As a result, the Packers won't turn the offense over to backup Joe Callahan, but it will be difficult nonetheless to bank on Hundley turning in a solid performance in the season finale, especially with his top two wideouts -- Davante Adams (concussion) and Jordy Nelson (shoulder) -- at risk of missing the contest. Hundley has had a few positive moments while filling in for the injured Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), but his 5.7 yards per attempt and 8:10 TD:INT ratio render him a lower-tier fantasy option.
With fellow rookie running back Aaron Jones inactive due to an MCL sprain in his left knee, Williams more than upheld his end of the bargain as a bell cow, handling 22 of the Packers' 27 rushes. Williams' pass-catching prowess was also on display, as he managed his first reception since Week 14. Over the final eight games of the season, he surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage four times, averaging 93.3 such yards per outing while reaching the end zone three times. The performance may have been enough to push Ty Montgomery (wrist) for lead duty in the 2018 campaign. Before then, though, Williams may have to recover from a head injury, as he left Sunday's game late in the fourth quarter to undergo a concussion evaluation.
It was thought that Kendricks would play a bigger role after joining the Packers last offseason, and even though he took over as the starter in October following the departure of fellow tight end Martellus Bennett, he did not come close to matching the 50 receptions he posted in 2016. In fact, he finished with the lowest reception total of his career; so though figures to be back in Green Bay in 2018 after signing a two-year contract, it's unlikely he will head into the season any higher than No. 2 on the depth chart.
Thomas spent the past three seasons with Green Bay, serving primarily as a reserve linebacker and special-teams player. He'll slot in as the backup middle linebacker behind Jaylon Smith but could possibly take over the third-down role if Smith continues to struggle in pass coverage.
In the midst of his rookie campaign, Jones was thrust into the justice system, with the most serious charge a citation for driving with a controlled substance (marijuana) in his system. As part of a plea deal, the other two charges were dropped, with Jones receiving a six-month suspension of his license, an order to pay a fine and court costs, and an ultimatum to undergo an alcohol assessment. With his legal woes behind him, there's a possibility the NFL weighs in with a fine, suspension or combination thereof under the league's substance-abuse policy. In the meantime, Jones will continue to focus on his recovery from a sprained MCL in his left knee in anticipation of the offseason program.
Rodgers was able to recover from the procedure and return from injured reserve when first eligible to start Week 15 against the Panthers, even though his collarbone hadn't completely healed at that point. The signal caller avoided any reported setbacks in that game, but exhibited some rustiness while completing only 26-of-45 passes for 290 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in a losing effort, which essentially ended the Packers' playoff hopes. The Packers returned Rodgers to IR for the final two games of the season in order to avoid any complications heading into 2018, and it appears that the 34-year-old is now 100 percent healthy. With Rodgers' health seemingly no longer a concern, the Packers' focus will shift to negotiating an extension with the quarterback, who has two seasons remaining on the five-year, $110 million pact he inked with Green Bay in April 2013.
Whitehead appeared in two games for the Packers in 2016 and has been on the team's practice squad since being released at roster cutdowns. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), who was placed on injured reserve. Whitehead could potentially see the field a bit more than typically expected in Week 7 with safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) ruled out and cornerbacks Damarious Randall (hamstring) and Davon House (quadriceps) listed as questionable.
The Packers were certainly hoping for more from Adams after selecting him in the third round, but an offseason foot injury slowed his progress and deemed him essentially a non-factor in his first year as a pro. As long as he is healthy, Adams will get a chance to play a bigger role in his sophomore campaign.
The four touches upped Mays' total touches on the year to seven, as he played a bit role for the Packers in his rookie season. The team liked him enough to keep him on the roster all season, but he will be behind fellow rookie runners Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams on the depth chart moving forward, so he is going to have to compete to hold onto his spot in 2018.
Goodson's year-long rehab from last November's nasty knee injury ended in disappointment, as he never saw the field in 2017. The 28-year-old came off the Physically Unable to Perform list late last month, only to injure his hamstring shortly thereafter.
Graham had only eight scores in 27 games his first two seasons in Seattle, then suffered a massive drop off in efficiency (9.1 yards per catch, 5.3 per target) while hitting paydirt 10 times last year. He'll have a shot to put it all together in Green Bay, where he'll join forces with Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb in a passing game that no longer has Jordy Nelson around to hog red-zone targets. The 31-year-old tight end isn't the same player he was during his peak years in New Orleans, but Rodgers should help mask the loss of speed and agility. All bets are off if Rodgers gets hurt again and Graham has to play with a backup.
Schum had been dealing with a back injury for weeks and was waived Thursday. In his absence, Justin Vogel will take over as the top punter in Green Bay, but the Packers could always bring in someone else for competition.
Bakhtiari was able to play through the issue Sunday, so he wasn't expected to miss any extra time. He'll start at left tackle in Week 13 against the Buccaneers.
Gilbert was waived at roster cutdowns in September and has spent the last two years on the Packers' practice squad. The 24-year-old is likely to have a role on special teams, but defensive snaps should be available Saturday with Nick Perry (ankle) listed as doubtful and Clay Matthews (hamstring) questionable.
Even though Lowry's knee injury was never considered to be severe, it's still nice to see him practicing in full just four days before the season opener. Barring a setback in practice, he should be set to start Sunday and could be an interesting IDP play going against a weak Seahawks offensive line that likely will devote more attention to Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark than to Lowry.
Perry had already been ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Lions, but the move opens up a roster spot for the Packers. The 27-year-old was bothered by injuries throughout the season and will end the year not playing in the final two games of 2017.
It was thought that Hawkins would mainly fill a depth role for the Packers in 2017, but due to injuries to fellow defensive backs he played more than anticipated and even started three games. His experience this past season will help him in the competition for a roster spot during training camp in 2018.
Dial has logged between 24 and 34 defensive snaps in each of the three weeks since returning from a chest injury. He should see a similar role Sunday, spelling Kenny Clark when need be.
Brooks provided some quality depth for the Packers, starting five games, but his production was slowed by a nagging back injury. He will turn 34 during the offseason, so it remains to be seen what his next step will be.
Janis did not catch a pass until Week 16, and the five targets he saw all season were his fewest since his rookie year of 2014. However, he managed to stay on the roster all season thanks to his superior skills on punt and kick coverage. With just 17 receptions over four seasons Janis is no longer really a fantasy prospect, but his work on special teams will give him a chance to stick around with the Packers in 2018.
Linsley has started every game for the Packers this season. He has proved reliable on the line, so it makes sense that the team wants to lock him up for the long term. The 26-year-old is now set to spend the prime of his career in Green Bay.
