Donald Driver injury: Probable status could make him fantasy worthy in Week 8

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver is probable in Week 8. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver has been listed as "probable" by the team on Friday's injury report. The Packers veteran pass-catcher was limited on Wednesday, but practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. Driver has been bothered with a neck injury but should be expected to go today versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Driver may have to step up in Week 8 with a banged up receiving corps. With Greg Jennings listed as out and Jordy Nelson questionable with a hamstring injury, Driver could see more time on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis: Driver looks to be the one veteran receiver for Green Bay that is fully healthy. After disappearing in most fantasy formats, Driver could be a viable flex-option in Week 8, with a banged up receiving corps. He could be expected to get more looks today versus the Jaguars, who have a questionable defense at best.

When Aaron Rodgers needs a sure-handed go-to-guy, it's typically Driver. Feel free to take a gamble on Driver this week in deeper fantasy leagues.
