QBAaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers

241 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, 13 rush yards

For the third straight week Rodgers faces a stiff test. The Seahawks have been thrown on a lot this year, but their defense has allowed opposing passers to complete just 56.6 percent of their passes, and for just 6.1 yards per attempt. Rodgers will again be solid for fantasy owners, but not special.

RBCedric Benson

Cedric Benson

45 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 22 rec yards

Last week's encouraging performance (116 yards from scrimmage) will quickly be forgotten this week against a Seahawks defense that kept Dallas' DeMarco Murray in check.

WRJordy Nelson

Jordy Nelson

3 rec, 56 yards, rec TD

With Greg Jennings still affected by his groin injury, Nelson will once again be asked to serve as Green Bay's No. 1 receiver. No problem. He'll answer the call.

WRRandall Cobb

Randall Cobb

4 rec, 44 yards, rec TD

The fact that Cobb has been used successfully as a rusher, receiver and return man this year makes him an intriguing play for fantasy owners. He's a poor man's Percy Harvin, and his value to fantasy owners grows a little bit each week.

WRGreg Jennings

Greg Jennings

4 rec, 42 yards

Jennings was a game-time decision last Thursday, so it seems likely he'll be ready for Seattle on Monday night. Still, the injury should cause fantasy owners to temper their expectations a tad.

WRJames Jones

James Jones

2 rec, 28 yards

Jones was the forgotten man Thursday and could disappear again on Monday with teammate Greg Jennings expected back. He's a spotty receiver for fantasy owners, and not someone to start in Week 3.

TEJermichael Finley

Jermichael Finley

6 rec, 53 yards

Finley takes one step forward, two steps back. In Week 1 it was drops; last week it was a costly fumble. Aaron Rodgers will keep throwing to his tight end, but Finley is turning another promising season sour.

KMason Crosby

Mason Crosby

3 PATs, FG

Crosby was a star last week, with three field goals to keep the Packers out of Chicago's reach. This game doesn't have the design of a high-scoring affair or a kicker's duel.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

There will be no seven-sack masterpiece this week. Russell Wilson does a good job of avoiding pressure and making plays on the fly. The Packers will force him into a mistake or two, but Seattle will not be the whipping boys that the Bears were.

QBRussell Wilson

Russell Wilson

181 pass yards, pass TD, INT, 23 rush yards

Wilson is developing into a serviceable starting quarterback for Seattle, able to move the chains with his arm or feet. However, this week Dom Capers' attacking defense will present him with challenges he hasn't faced before.

RBMarshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch

78 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 27 rec yards

The Packers' run defense is probably not as good as the unit Lynch tore up last week, but it's doubtful the Seahawks will rack up 41 rushing attempts this week like they did against Dallas. The Packers will push the tempo; Lynch will do well with what he's given to work with.

WRSidney Rice

Sidney Rice

5 rec, 69 yards, rec TD

Rice and Packers cornerback Tramon Williams know one another well from Rice's days with the Vikings. Williams is one of the NFC’s most well-rounded corners, but Rice and Seattle will connect at least once down the field.

WRGolden Tate

Golden Tate

2 rec, 38 yards

Having reclaimed his starting job from Braylon Edwards, Tate caught three balls last week (Edwards didn't have a catch). Fantasy owners must remember, though, that Tate has never been a consistent fantasy producer.

WRDoug Baldwin

Doug Baldwin

2 rec, 26 yards

The Seahawks do not pass the ball enough to satisfy two receivers, let alone three. Baldwin's sophomore campaign has been a disappointment thus far. Nothing new this week.

TEZach Miller

Zach Miller

2 rec, 19 yards

Miller was hobbled by a bad foot last week, opening the door for backup Anthony McCoy to shine. The two may share more reps now, but Miller remains the team's best tight end -- though not a very good option for fantasy owners.

KSteven Hauschka

Steven Hauschka

2 PATs, 2 FGs

The Seahawks have done a good job of supplying Hauschka with makeable kicks, as three of his five successful attempts have come from 27 yards or closer. The Packers' bend-but-don't-break defense should keep Hauschka in good spirits.

DEFENSE

Sack

The Seahawks may be able to take advantage of suspect left tackle Marshall Newhouse, but other than that the Packers do a good job of insulating their quarterback. And Aaron Rodgers does a good job of limiting mistakes.
