Player Notes

  • Christine Michael added to injury report
    Packers added Christine Michael to the injury report as questionable with a back injury.

    Advice: The timing suggests he suffered the injury late in the week. Michael did not touch the ball in limited snaps last week against Dallas, but his absence would still be a blow to an already banged-up offense. Ty Montgomery should dominate the backfield touches against the Falcons. Daily Slant: Montgomery had three total touches in the red zone and scored two touchdowns inside the 3-yard line against Dallas, which is an encouraging sign that he’ll continue to get the RB work in scoring position. TyMont has also become increasingly involved in the passing game - he caught six of seven targets for 34 yards last week - and Atlanta struggles to defend receiving RBs. They've allowed the most receptions (6.59), 2nd-most receiving yards (52.76), and 2nd-most receiving touchdowns (0.35) per game to the position. Montgomery is in a great spot, especially for full PPR scoring. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:33 am

  • 49ers looking at Falcons Nick Polk for GM?
    Pro Football Talk believes Falcons director of football operations Nick Polk could be a candidate for the 49ers' vacant general manager position.

    Advice: After both Eliot Wolf and Brian Gutekunst decided to stay with the Packers, the 49ers have to look further down their list. Vikings assistant GM George Paton would seem to be the favorite, but it makes sense for San Francisco to find someone presumptive coach Kyle Shanahan is comfortable working with. Polk, who has been with the Falcons for 12 seasons, could be that guy. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:08 am

  • C-Patt: I felt wanted by Vikings this season
    Impending free agent Cordarrelle Patterson said he felt wanted by the Vikings this season.

    Advice: Patterson said he "didn't feel wanted" by Minnesota during Mike Zimmer's first two years in charge and was focused on "trying to get out." Patterson had a change of heart this season, likely in no small part because he actually had a role on offense, and now wants to stay. Price will likely determine if the Vikings feel the same way, but they should be interested in keeping around a guy who has led the league in kick return average three of the last four seasons.

  • GM 'definitely' wants to re-sign Jack Doyle
    Colts GM Ryan Grigson said he "definitely" wants to re-sign impending free agent TE Jack Doyle.

    Advice: This, of course, assumes Grigson will still be the general manager, but it looks like he is safe at this point. Doyle had a breakout 2016, hauling in 59 passes for 584 yards and five touchdowns. All three numbers eclipsed his career totals entering the year. Doyle is not the type of dynamic receiving threat which commands big dollars on the open market, but he should be looking for more than the three-year, $13-million deal Brent Celek landed last January.

  • Report: Rob Kelley underwent knee surgery
    Scout.com's Ben Standig reports Rob Kelley underwent surgery on his right knee following Washington's season-ending loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Kelley suffered the injury in Week 16, played with a brace against the Giants, and had the knee operated on shortly after the loss. A source told Standig the surgery was "relatively minor" and "dealt with the meniscus." Kelley averaged just 3.33 yards per carry over the Redskins' final six games and showed next to no passing-game ability. He'll face competition for his starting job in 2017.
