Disclaimer: For any fantasy scoring numbers, I will be using those generated by Yahoo! fantasy football. It is the system I have played a majority of my fantasy football on over the years – and currently play on. Other setups are fine – I’ve worked with ESPN and NFL fantasy football teams in the past – but seeing as I have the most experience using this scoring system, I’ll stick with using their methods of scoring.
Last week brought us a bit of a scare at the end, but the game finished with what Green Bay Packers fans should be accustomed to by now: a victory led by the offense. That means it was yet again a mostly enjoyable week for you fantasy football players out there, with plenty of points being produced in the process.
Depending what site you are playing on you may have already begun your fantasy playoffs already, but this week my fantasy engine of choice (Yahoo!) begins theirs. The stakes are raised people, and every decision from here on out is that much more important.
Just as it should the competition heats up now, and the Packers are facing a perfect opponent that embodies that in Buffalo. They field a powerful defense that should challenge Green Bay’s high-powered offense.
So how will things go? Who produces? Who doesn’t?
We’ll know for sure Sunday…but first, speculation and predictions!
Let’s begin, shall we?
