Prior to sitting out the last two games of the season due to a knee concern, Randall was the Packers' most consistent cornerback, the result of a number of an injuries elsewhere in the secondary. According to Cohen's source, Randall dealt with the minor issue in his hand "all season," so the team was aware of the imminent procedure. In 39 career contests, Randall has racked up 144 tackles and 10 interceptions, two of them for touchdowns.
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 tore his ACL in Week 9's loss to the Lions and now his season officially comes to an end with his placement on IR. Look for Justin McCray and recently activated Jason Spriggs to compete for the starting right tackle position for the remainder of the season.
Waters originally hurt his shoulder in minicamp but aggravated the injury in the opening days of training camp. The exact details of the ailment remain clouded, however.
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.
Allison occupied the No. 4 spot on the depth chart at the wide receiver spot for most of the campaign, but his numbers took a small step forward in his second season. The Packers re-signed fellow receiver Davante Adams to a multi-year deal before 2017 came to a close, but they will have decisions to make on wideouts Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, who carry hefty salaries in 2018. If either or both move on, that could allow Allison to move up the ranks, and give him a chance to post more games like his 122-yard outing from Week 3, in which he had Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.
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.
Clark spent most of the year on the practice squad, but he got a chance to see some run late in the season thanks to injuries to his fellow receivers. The Packers like his size and athleticism, but he has minimal experience playing football after spending most of college playing basketball, so he is going to have some refining to do if he hopes to play a bigger role in his sophomore season.
On fourth and five early in the fourth quarter, Cobb crossed over the middle, snagged a Brett Hundley pass, and cut up field for a 17-yard score -- Green Bay's first in two weeks. 2017 was another ho-hum year for Cobb, but he ended the season strong with two touchdowns in his last three games. It'll be interesting to see what Green Bay does with Cobb following its big contract with Davante Adams. Cobb carries a $12.75-million cap hit in 2018 and a $3.25 million dead-cap figure if he's cut following back-to-back seasons of less than 700 yards receiving.
McCray was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Ravens with a knee injury, but after being limited Wednesday and fully participating Thursday, the guard should be good to go for this weekend's matchup with the Steelers.
Though Montgomery was ruled out for his third straight game Sunday against the Buccaneers due to the rib injuries before being shuttled to IR, it appears his need for wrist surgery was the primary reason behind the transaction. Montgomery should be fully recovered from both issues by the time training camp commences next summer, but the Packers will be forced to ride out the current season with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams as their primary running backs.
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.
Nelson had six touchdowns in the five games he and Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) both started and finished this season, but the veteran wideout otherwise was held out of the end zone completely while failing to top 35 yards in a game after Week 6. Brett Hundley's poor play obviously gets some of the blame, but it's impossible to completely absolve Nelson when considering that Davante Adams (concussion) continued to produce at a high level. Friday's announcement of a long-term extension for Adams brings Nelson's situation to the forefront, with the 32-year-old wideout entering the final season of his own contract, scheduled for a $9.25 million base salary in 2018. Even if he sticks around, Nelson is unlikely to regain his long-time standing as the No. 1 target in the Green Bay passing game, given that Adams has proven to be the superior player at this point in their respective careers. Slot receiver Randall Cobb also will be entering the final year of his contract and likewise seems to be in danger of facing an offseason ultimatum.
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.
Seeing his first regular season action in two years as a professional, Callahan led the Packers' final drive of their 2017 campaign. He has impressed the Packers enough to spend the bulk of the past two seasons with the club, but he did not get a chance to supplant fill-in starter Brett Hundley even when he was struggling during Aaron Rodgers' absence, so it seems unlikely he will be part of the conversation for the backup job behind Rodgers heading into next season.
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.
Jones was relatively quiet in his rookie season, but he still managed to record the third most snaps of all Packers defenders, and he did post a 12-tackle, two-sack game in Week 3. If he plays an even bigger role in his second season, fantasy players in leagues using IDPs should recall he has that type of upside.
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.
Burnett put up quality numbers for fantasy players in 2016. but he failed to register anything in the sack or interception departments and saw his tackle total take a big drop while battling injuries. A free agent in the offseason, it remains to be seen if Burnett will return to the Packers, or head elsewhere after eight seasons in Green Bay.
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.
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.
In addition to being the premier left tackle of his generation, Thomas had proven himself as the NFL's most durable player before he ruptured his left triceps tendon Oct. 22 against the Titans. The injury ended Thomas' record-setting streak of 10,363 consecutive snaps played to begin a career and required season-ending surgery. Though the 33-year-old is under contract through the 2018 campaign, Thomas' long-term concerns about his health -- in addition to the triceps injury, he's endured chronic knee and back problems the last several years -- and the Browns' likely status as a non-contending club has left him contemplating his future over the past few months. Thomas said he isn't certain when he'll reach a decision, but acknowledged the Browns would like to know his intentions before the new league year begins March 14 so that the team can plan accordingly for the upcoming season and beyond.
The extent of the knee injury Jones suffered in Week 16 is still not entirely certain, but it has prevented him from practicing this week and will sideline him for the Packers' regular-season finale. Jones finishes his rookie season with a pedestrian 448 yards, but he will be a player to keep in mind heading into fantasy drafts in 2018. He averaged a healthy 5.5 yards per carry and proved capable of handling lead-back duties several times during the campaign.
This news was expected since Rodgers hasn't been held back during his personal workouts so far this offseason. Maybe even more importantly, he also felt well enough to play in the Waste Management Phoenix Open Pro-Am this past weekend. The 34-year-old will head into the 2018 season with two years remaining on his current contract.
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.
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.
Lowry had just 17 combined tackles and one sack on the season heading into Week 13, but he made his biggest impact in a game to date and played a key role in the Packers' win. He has started 10 of the Packers' 12 games this year in his second season as a pro.
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.
