Lambeau Field | Sunday, October 24 | 8:20 p.m. EST (NBC)
Pick: Vikings 21, Packers 17
210 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INTFavre threw seven touchdown passes in two games against the Packers last season, so even though he has been a little inconsistent this year, it would be wise to get him in your lineup this week.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 110 rush yards, 1 rush TDPeterson is averaging over 110 yards per game this season, and he has averaged over 100 yards in his six games against Green Bay. The Packers are 21st in the league in rush defense and banged up, so Peterson has a great chance to reach triple digits again this week.
10 rush yardsGerhart has taken over the Vikings' backup role, but he is not seeing enough touches to have any fantasy value in Week 7.
4 rec, 100 yards, 1 TDMoss has 12 touchdowns in 13 career games against Green Bay, so there is a good chance he finds the end zone Sunday night. Expect Brett Favre to look Moss' way a lot now that he has a couple games under his belt with his new team.
3 rec, 65 yards, 1 TDHarvin has found the end zone four times in his last three games. Brett Favre played very well against the Packers last season, so Harvin is definitely worth a start this week.
1 rec, 10 yardsBerrian has caught just one pass in the two games Randy Moss has played with the team, so do not expect him to be a big factor this week.
2 rec, 20 yardsShiancoe has caught just three total passes in his last three games. He did score in each game against the Packers last season, but it is a risk to start a guy who has not seen many targets lately. Go with another option if available.
3 PATsLongwell has attempted only four field goals this season, and he has made just eight in nine career games against Green Bay. Use another kicker this week if you have space on your roster.
2 sacks, 1 INTThe Vikings defense is not giving up many points, but they have only six sacks and seven forced turnovers in five games. Go with a more productive option unless point bonuses count heavily.
215 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 15 rush yards, 1 INTDespite facing enormous pressure, Rodgers posted a 5:1 TD:INT ratio in two games against Minnesota last season. The Vikings have been strong against the pass, but expect Rodgers to play well in what will be a huge game for both teams.
2 rec, 10 rec yards, 30 rush yardsJackson was the Packers' primary back last week, and despite receiving just 12 carries, he was able to rack up 82 total yards. Jackson will take on the Vikings' fifth-rated defense in Week 7, so do not expect him to provide much more than that.
5 rec, 90 yards, 1 TDWith TE Jermichael Finley out for the season, Jennings will again be the Packers' top receiving option no a weekly basis. Jennings should put up decent yardage numbers in Week 7, but be aware he has scored just twice in eight games against the Vikings.
5 rec, 65 yards, 1 TDDriver's production has slid in recent weeks, making him a questionable option for Week 7. Driver has not scored against the Vikings since 2006, so maybe he's due.
2 rec, 20 yardsJones was held without a catch in Week 6, so it is best to use other options until he gets more involved in the passing game again.
2 rec, 20 yardsNelson has picked up the pace the last two weeks and could be a viable option in deeper leagues going forward in the wake of Jermichael Finley's injury, Still, start other options until Nelson becomes a bit more consistent.
1 rec, 10 yardsThe Packers will use several players to help replace Jermichael Finley, but Quarless has the biggest upside of the bunch. Still, the tight end position is pretty deep, so Quarless should not be considered more than a long-term option at this point.
2 PATs, 1 FGCrosby has averaged more than eight points in his six career games against the Vikings, which makes him a viable option in all formats this week.
3 sacks, 2 INTGreen Bay's defense did almost nothing last week with LB Clay Matthews out, so be ready to go with a different option if Matthews misses this week's game. If Matthews plays, use the Packers as you normally would.
