Packers 46-Man Roster Prediction vs. Bears

Here's our best guess at predicting the Packers gameday roster for Week 16 against the Chicago Bears.

The entire roster is included. Those bold and italicized are predicted to be inactive...

Quarterbacks: Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn, Graham Harrell

Running backs: Ryan Grant, James Starks, John Kuhn, Brandon Saine

Wide receivers: Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall Cobb

Tight ends: Jermichael Finley, Tom Crabtree, Ryan Taylor, D.J. Williams

Offensive line: Chad Clifton, T.J. Lang, Scott Wells, Josh Sitton, Bryan Bulaga, Marshall Newhouse, Evan Dietrich-Smith, Ray Dominguez, Herb Taylor

Defensive line: B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, Mike Neal, Jarius Wynn, C.J. Wilson, Howard Green

Outside linebackers: Clay Matthews, Erik Walden, Frank Zombo, Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore, Vic So'oto

Inside linebackers: A.J. Hawk, Desmond Bishop, D.J. Smith, Robert Francois

Cornerbacks: Charles Woodson, Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Jarrett Bush, Pat Lee, Davon House

Safeties: Morgan Burnett, Charlie Peprah, M.D. Jennings

Specialists: Mason Crosby, Tim Masthay, Brett Goode

Commentary:

  • Pretty cut and dried this week. Ryan Pickett, Bryan Bulaga, Chad Clifton and Greg Jennings have already been ruled out for Sunday's game.
  • The Packers showed last week that Davon House and Vic So'oto aren't in their plans. Even though they were active against the Chiefs, neither played.
  • Graham Harrell hasn't been active yet since being elevated to the 53-man roster. As long as the Packers are still playing for home-field advantage, that should continue.
  • Mike Neal is listed as questionable, but Neal himself said he's ready to play and head coach Mike McCarthy said he's hopeful he'll play.
  • James Starks, Brandon Saine, Desmond Bishop and Howard Green are all probable. They all should be active.
  • Ray Dominguez and Herb Taylor will be the backup offensive linemen and very likely will be active. If either of them play, it would be their season debut.

I have Starks and Grant on my fantasy team and have to play one of them. Not sure who's going to get more touches. I heard that Starks is going to play to just knock the rust off. Advice?

Ideally you could drop one of them to pick up Kahlil Bell. If not, I think Grant is the safer bet for 5 points. Remember that Grant had a very good showing against the Bears in week 3. Either way, don't expect much from the Packers RBs.

Good luck

I'm less inclined than a lot of fans who want to throw a player or coach under the bus i.e. Bush, J. Jones, Finley, and Slocum. I feel MM/TT know what they are doing and see things we don't.
BUT I find myself questioning why So'oto is on the team. He doesn't contribute on ST. When Zombo was hurt So'oto didn't play on D. When Walden couldn't hold the edge last week So'oto didn't even sniff the field. I'd like to cheer for the guy but I find myself thinking what other player/position could be shored up w/ his roster spot. Is it potential alone?

Oppy's picture

yes. It is potential.

So'oto benches more than many nfl LINEMEN (35 rep bench press) and runs a mid to high 4.6 40. He's got the temperment. He COULD develop into a stellar pass rushing OLB.

He is a physical specimen who needs to be developed and coached. If he turns out, he could be a beast.
