Rodgers had another productive fantasy game in Week 9, throwing for 314 yards and a TD in the loss to the Titans. This will likely be a game which sees him air it out since the Vikings are tough to run on. He accounted for two TDs (one rushing/one passing) in the Week 1 win over Minnesota and has gained considerably confidence since then. There's no reason to sit Rodgers this week if you normally start him.
Grant ran well last week against the Titans, averaging more than four yards per carry, but the Packers didn't commit to him as they should have and so it was another frustrating week for his fantasy owners. They'll be frustrated again this week as he faces a Minnesota run defense that gives up only 69.6 yards a game. Since he isn't used in the passing game and he isn't scoring TDs, Grant's potential for this week is very low. If you have another good option, this is a good week to keep Grant on your bench.
Jackson is a sneaky flex play this week in PPR leagues. The Packers will have to throw a lot to win this game and Jackson has become a reliable receiver out of the backfield. He's caught 15 passes in his last three games and will be active again on Sunday. Don't expect the world, but he should be a solid RB3 in PPR formats if you need to dig deep.
Jennings has been a bit quiet lately, catching only six passes in his last two games. But he caught five passes for 91 yards against the Vikings in Week 1 and should do well again on Sunday. Minnesota lacks the talent to match up with him in the secondary so look for at least five receptions and at least one big play downfield from Jennings this week.
Driver loves facing the Vikings. He has at least four receptions in his last seven games against Minnesota with four touchdowns. The Packers will throw it plenty in this one and Driver's intermediate route-running skills will be targeted often. He'll deliver his usual brand of production as a strong WR3 in all formats.
Nelson has supplanted James Jones as the No. 3 WR for the Packers. He's a talented rookie but the Packers are making as much use of the third receiver this season as they have in the past with Brett Favre. Nelson could always surprise given his talent and the number of passes Rodgers will likely throw this week, but he's too risky to start in any league.
Lee is pretty much the forgotten man in the Green Bay passing game. After putting up Top 10 TE numbers last year with Brett Favre, he's rarely been targeted by Aaron Rodgers. Don't expect that to change this week so look elsewhere for a TE starter if you need one.
Crosby continues to deliver quality fantasy production. He's made 14 of 17 FG attempts and his strong leg gives him value in leagues that reward bonus points for longer FGs. The Packers will get plenty of scoring chances this week so look for Crosby to keep rolling.
Gus Frerotte is playing very well for Minnesota but he will turn the ball over. He threw an INT last week that was returned for a touchdown and that's been a Green Bay specialty this season. The Packers will have their hands full with Adrian Peterson but this unit has found a way to deliver most weeks this season so there's no reason to bench them this week if you normally start them.
I'm not sure why, but Frerotte continues to be flying WAY under the fantasy radar. He had another productive game in Week 9, throwing three TDs in the Vikings' win over Detroit. This is a tough matchup as Green Bay only allows 183.9 passing yards a game so don't expect Frerotte to go off in this one. But if the Vikings establish the running game – which they should -- that will give Frerotte some chances to strike downfield. Lower your expectations a bit but don't be surprised if he has another productive game.
Peterson is starting to rev up. He rushed for 139 yards and a TD last week and has topped 100 yards rushing in three straight games. He torched the Packers for 103 yards and a TD only 19 carries in Week 1 so he should continue to roll this week. He's looking like the best RB in fantasy right now.
The Vikings are starting to get Taylor more involved. He has nine receptions the past two weeks to go along with 17 rushing attempts. He should be good for 10-12 touches again this week and his receiving skills give him modest RB3 value in PPR leagues. If you need to dig deep, Taylor should be OK to reach for.
Berrian has been playing like an elite WR since Frerotte took over as the starter. He caught a 49-yard TD last week and just missed a second touchdown. He'll face a huge test against Green Bay's Charles Woodson and given how Woodson has shut down some standout WRs this season such as Reggie Wayne, it's unwise to expect Berrian to have a huge game. But he's really clicking with Frerotte and the Packers are vulnerable to deep strikes (Berrian nearly had a long TD against them in Week 1). So Berrian has a chance. Lower your expectations but keep starting him. He's playing too good to sit.
Rice got back on the field last week after batting a knee injury he suffered in Week 1 against Green Bay. He scored last week and had a TD grab in the opener against the Packers. He's very valuable in the Red Zone and could surprise with another TD this week. This isn't the best spot for him but don't be surprised if he finds the end zone again.
Shiancoce has become a popular end zone target for Frerotte, hauling in four TDs this season. He won't catch many passes typically but this is a great matchup for him since the Packers have problems stopping TEs. If Green Bay takes the Minnesota WRs away, Shiancoe could run free in the middle of the field. He has plenty of upside if you need some bye-week help this week.
Longwell is always a quality fantasy option at home and he's having a fine season. He didn't get a FG opportunity last week because the Vikings kept scoring TDs. But Green Bay's defense should keep Minnesota out of the end zone a few times so Longwell has a very good chance to do well on Sunday. He's a solid starter if you need him.
The Vikings are an aggressive defense that is tough against the run but vulnerable through the air. Look for them to struggle against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' passing game but use their aggressive nature to force some mistakes. Not having Jared Allen (shoulder injury) is a big blow, but there's still talent here and at home, they're very viable.
