Green Bay Packers DFS Spin

The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Ryan Wood reports the Packers' "plan" is for Aaron Jones (calf) to not play Week 7 against the Texans. Per Wood, Green Bay "isn't expected to push" Jones despite his own confidence in his ability to play through the injury. If Jones is indeed inactive, Jamaal Williams immediately becomes a borderline RB1/2 with rookie AJ Dillon possibly flirting with double-digit carries. Jones' issue doesn't seem like a long-term one.

Houston Texans DFS Spin

Texans TE Jordan Akins (ankle, concussion) did not practice Friday and is questionable to play this week against Green Bay. Probably Akins is on the wrong side of questionable after a week in which he didn't practice. That would give Darren Fells another week as a streaming tight end option. Fells has caught eight of nine targets and posted a 22 percent touchdown rate over the past two games with Akins inactive. While not sustainable, Fells should continue seeing opportunity.
