2020 Fantasy Outlook
Alexander, the Packers' top pick in 2018, has developed into the team's top cornerback. He was one of the better cover corners in the league last season, and he almost never came off the field. He was targeted frequently, but he held his own and finished tied for fourth in the league with 17 pass deflections. Seeing more passes in his direction helps Alexander pile up tackles, but it has not resulted in many interceptions, as he has just three over 29 career games. Read Past Outlooks

Alexander (hand/knee) put in a full practice session Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Despite dealing with repeated early-season stints on the injury report, Alexander has played through the pain and remained a formidable presence in the Green Bay secondary. Alexander has already recorded a safety, an interception and two tackles for loss, holding opposing QBs to a measly 70.2 passer rating when targeting him in coverage this season. He's trending towards a fifth consecutive start to kick off 2020, as Green Bay's secondary prepares to face a Buccaneers receiving corps that may get back Chris Godwin (hamstring) from a two-week absence.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Alexander was selected in the first round of last year's draft, and while he did not head into Week 1 as a starter, he assumed that role in Week 3 and never gave it back. Injuries limited Alexander to 13 games in his rookie season, but he impressed when on the field, totaling 66 tackles and 11 deflections. Those numbers don't rank all that highly among defensive backs, but it's tough for cornerbacks to make much of a fantasy impact to begin with. Alexander did have one interception, and has the skills to increase that number. He is definitely a breakout candidate in Year 2.
The Packers traded down in the first round of this year's draft and picked up both an extra first-rounder and Alexander in the process. It remains to be seen if Alexander will open the season in the starting lineup, but he figures to play a key role of some sorts right away, and will have a chance to start at some point even if he does not in Week 1.
