Fantasy Player Projections

 
Miami Dolphins
Lambeau Field | Sunday, October 17 | 1:00 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Packers 20, Dolphins 17
Green Bay Packers
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBChad Henne
225 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 2 INT
Henne's value for Week 6 could depend on Green Bay LB Clay Matthews' injury status. The Packers had trouble stopping Donovan McNabb last week after Matthews left the game. Henne is a decent option if Matthews sits.
RBRonnie Brown
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 45 rush yards
Brown has not scored since Week 1 and has yet to record more than 85 total yards in a game. The Packers have a stiff run defense.
RBRicky Williams
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 35 rush yards
Williams had his best game of the season in Week 4 despite touching the ball only 12 times. Still, the Packers are good against the run, and Williams' recent lack of carries makes him a risky option this week.
WRBrandon Marshall
6 rec, 80 yards, 1 TD
Marshall has recorded at least four catches 50 yards in each game this season. He has only scored one touchdown, but his talent still makes him a weekly starter in all formats.
WRDavone Bess
5 rec, 55 yards
Bess really picked up the pace in the two games prior to the Dolphins' bye, and he has a nice matchup against a Green Bay defense that has struggled to stop the pass lately. Bess is worth a start this week if you need him.
TEAnthony Fasano
2 rec, 30 yards
Fasano has put up decent numbers in three of the Dolphins' four games, so he will be there if you need him this week.
KDan Carpenter
2 PATs, 1 FG
Carpenter is not putting up the point totals of other kickers around the league and has not attempted a field goal in two of the Dolphins' four games, so go with a more consistent option this week.
Defense
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Dolphins should be avoided if Aaron Rodgers plays in Week 6, but if he sits out, the Dolphins will have a nice matchup against backup Matt Flynn, who will be making his first career start. Their value this week will depend on Rodgers' status.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBAaron Rodgers
175 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 1 INT
After suffering a concussion in Week 5, Rodgers' status for this week's game is iffy. He is a must-start if he suits up, but be prepared to use another option.
RBBrandon Jackson
3 rec, 10 rec yards, 50 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Jackson recorded 140 total yards last week, but half of those came on one long carry and he only touched the ball 15 times. Still, Jackson could play a key role for the Packers if Aaron Rodgers sits out, so he is a decent option this week.
WRGreg Jennings
5 rec, 75 yards
Jennings is averaging just 36 yards per game, but his role should be bigger due to the loss of TE Jermichael Finley for a few weeks. Like most of the Packers' offensive players, Jennings' Week 6 value will depend directly on Aaron Rodgers' injury status.
WRDonald Driver
4 rec, 65 yards, 1 TD
Driver is a viable option if Aaron Rodgers plays, but be wary of using him if Rodgers if forced to sit out.
TEAndrew Quarless
3 rec, 25 yards
Quarless will have a bigger role in the Packers offense over the coming weeks with starter Jermichael Finley and backup Donald Lee injured. Quarless is an intriguing option, but his value will likely be limited to deeper leagues initially.
KMason Crosby
2 PATs, 2 FGs
The Dolphins are giving up 23 points per game, so Crosby should have a few opportunities to put up points this week.
Defense
3 sacks, 2 INT, 2 Fumbles
Green Bay's defense looked completely different when Clay Matthews was out of the game last week, so their value for Week 6 could depend on Matthews' health. If Matthews plays, the Packers are certainly worth a start; but if he sits out, it may be best to find someone else.
