Disclaimer: For any fantasy scoring numbers, I will be using those generated by Yahoo! fantasy football. It is the system on which I’ve played a majority of my fantasy football over the years – and currently play. 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.
Week 2 of the season brought the Green Bay Packers a frustrating defeat to their rival Minnesota Vikings which raised a bunch of questions about the offense; when it comes to the fantasy realm, those questions are quite relevant to how your teams performed — and may continue to do so.
For the Packers, just about every player performed below expectations (both in real and fantasy terms) against the Vikings; from the quarterback to his runners and receivers, nobody had what could be considered a stellar day, and few even reached the heights of mediocrity.
This week they get matched up with a Detroit team that, while causing problems for the Packers in the recent past, should be much easier to attack for an offense that is in dire need of a strong performance.
We start at the quarterback spot.
