Hopefully your fantasy game wasn’t as nail-biting as the Green Bay Packers game this week.

If it was … I hope you all back-shouldered to victory as well.

What a heck of a game.

The Packers saw a few guys have big days while a couple others disappeared.

This week’s matchup should be an interesting one for both sides of the ball.

The Panthers’ defense hasn’t looked even fairly close to the defense of last season and have allowed 37 or more points in three of their last four contests.

On the flip side, the Packers got dinged up, losing both starting cornerbacks against Miami. The Packers haven’t shown us any reason to believe that they can stop the read option and Cam Newton is one of the best in the business at it.

This game could very well be a shoot-out, which will be great if you have the Packers skills players.

Last week:

Aaron Rodgers – Projected – 21; Actual – 25

Eddie Lacy – Projected – 16; Actual – 4

Jordy Nelson – Projected – 14; Actual – 16

Randall Cobb – Projected – 11; Actual – 11

Davante Adams – Projected – 5; Actual – 7

Tight Ends – Projected – 3; Actual – 7

Defense – Projected – 10; Actual – 7

Mason Crosby – Projected – 8; Actual – 10

A home run on Randall Cobb, while others overachieved, I failed miserably on Eddie Lacy. From now on if a front seven is good, Lacy will be graded low.

With that said, here’s to another great week of football.
