Aaron Rodgers is one of the most reliable quarterbacks in all of football. The same goes for fantasy football. Even with some of his best pass catching options being out due to Covid, he’s still someone I’m plugging into my starting QB spot this week without hesitation.
Aaron Jones is always a RB1 and a must start despite the matchup, but A.J. Dillon could be an intriguing flex play this week. I expect this game to be a close one despite Davante Adams and Allen Lazard being out on Covid-IR. Rodgers should never be counted out, and I expect a lot of work through the air heading the running back’s way. For that reason I have no problems plugging Dillon into my flex with confidence expecting that he’ll see some work in the passing game.
Randall Cobb, Amari Rodger, Equanimeous St. Brown, and possibly Marquez Valdes-Scantling will be suiting up to catch balls from Rodgers. I’ll keep this short and sweet. Cobb is the only Packer wide receiver I have any confidence putting into my flex spot this week. The other pass catcher who will play a role is Robert Tonyan. I expect him to have a TE1 week, so make sure to get him into your lineups in Week 8.
With this matchup expected to be a tough one, I’m sitting the Packers D/ST. Mason Crosby is a low-end startable kicker this week.
