Week 8 brought us back to what we have been missing from the Green Bay Packers.
After over a year of the offense feeling somewhat disjointed at best — and flabbergastingly stifled at worst — we got to see Aaron Rodgers lead his group to their best full-game performance seemingly since 2014.
Unfortunately, the defense showed us some pre-2015 form as well, giving up 33 points while failing to force pressure or turnovers against an elite Atlanta offense in an last-minute defeat.
Still, for a loss, there are plenty of positive signs we can take away from last week’s action, and the prospects look good for this team as they start to pass the midway point of their season.
Up next: a limited Indianapolis Colts team which is coming off one of their worst performances of the year, bringing with them a one-trick pony of an offense and an awful defense which looks to be missing some of its best players.
How does that stack up for Green Bay’s multitude of weaponry, fantasy-wise?

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.
