Packers Optimistic About Aaron Jones, Christian Watson

Wednesday, September 27, 11:14 AM

The Green Bay Packers are optimistic that both running back Aaron Jones (hamstring) and wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) will return from their injuries to play on Thursday night against the Detroit Lions. However, head coach Matt LaFleur insisted that both players still need to be cleared before Thursday. Jones had 127 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns in the season opener and would return to his lead-back role this week, making him a high-end RB2 for fantasy lineups. Watson, who has yet to play in 2023, said he was "pretty close" to play in the Week 3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Watson should be quarterback Jordan Love's go-to target this year, but fantasy managers may want to temper expectations this week if he indeed is active.

Nick Chubb News

Nick Chubb Will Be Out At Least Six Months

Saturday, September 23, 7:59 PM

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb (knee) suffered a season-ending injury during the Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. At first glance, this looked like possibly a career-ending injury for the superstar back. Luckily, it ended up being better than some people originally thought. Chubb has suffered a torn MCL and given a recovery timetable of six to eight months. The surgery hasn't happened yet, so this timetable could change. However, it sounds like Chubb could be back in action as early as the beginning of next season.
