Green Bay Packers: Week 8 fantasy football profile
By Kenn Korb
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 7 started off with the Green Bay Packers facing off against their rival Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football. The game didn’t begin pretty, but the Packers came across some things in the second half on offense which were able to jump-start their attack — facets which they are likely to continue looking towards in the coming weeks.
Week 8 brings a road contest against the Atlanta Falcons, a team capable of putting up points in bunches (32.7 points per game; 1st in NFL) but also quite capable of giving up just as many (28.4 ppg; 27th).
How do Green Bay’s particular matchups in this game shape up for the fantasy crowd?
I’ll start with the quarterback.
