QBJake Locker

Jake Locker

235 pass yards, pass TD, INT

In case you need a reason to sit Locker: He has not thrown multiple touchdown passes in a game since Week 10 and has yet to reach 10 touchdowns for the season.

RBChris Johnson

Chris Johnson

105 rush yards, rush TD, 3 rec, 27 rec yards

As he showed last week, all Johnson needs is one long run, and the Packers' defense is not immune to giving up the big play. Adrian Peterson ripped off an 82-yard carry en route to a 210-yard day against Green Bay earlier this month.

WRKenny Britt

Kenny Britt

5 rec, 81 yards, rec TD

Kendall Wright's rib injury will lead to more looks for Britt and Nate Washington this week in Green Bay. Britt was mostly ignored against the Jets after gaining 143 yards in Week 14. Expect him to bounce back on Sunday.

WRNate Washington

Nate Washington

6 rec, 78 yards

The Titans have no choice but to throw early and often, which should benefit the team's most consistent receiver. Washington caught a pair of touchdowns in Week 15 and registered his only 100-yard game against NFC North foes this season.

TECraig Stevens

Craig Stevens

2 rec, 20 yards

Stevens is filling in for Jared Cook, but he's little more than a placeholder. He doesn't have the athleticism or experience Cook brings to the table, and he's not going to factor much into Tennessee's game plan in these final weeks.

KRob Bironas

Rob Bironas

2 PATs, FG

Lately, Bironas has been boom or bust for fantasy owners. Playing in chilly Lambeau in what could be a blowout, expect him to be a bust this week.

DEFENSE

2 Sacks

Stop Green Bay's offense? Yeah, right. The Titans will get pressure on Aaron Rodgers but won't find enough bodies to cover all of Rodgers' weapons downfield. This is no match.

QBAaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers

314 pass yards, 3 pass TDs, 18 rush yards

The NFC North title has been secured, but the Packers are still in the hunt for a bye week, meaning Rodgers will be at it for four quarters against a Tennessee secondary ranked near the bottom of the league. Titans fans may have nightmares for weeks.

RBAlex Green

Alex Green

72 rush yards, 2 rec, 25 rec yards

The job belongs to Green now. Ryan Grant's fumble last week and DuJuan Harris' size have made it an easy decision (both will see minimal touches), but in fairness to Green, he has picked up his level of play in recent weeks. In fact, he's almost worth starting in fantasy lineups.

WRRandall Cobb

Randall Cobb

5 rec, 98 yards, 2 rec TDs

Cobb has delivered back-to-back 100-yard games and has caught 19 of the 21 balls thrown to him in December. Aaron Rodgers' favorite target will lead the receiving corps against a Titans defense that has given up 26 touchdown passes this season.

WRJames Jones

James Jones

3 rec, 40 yards, rec TD

Jones does one thing well: catch touchdowns. Of his 51 catches this season, an NFL-best 12 have gone for scores. His red zone relationship with Aaron Rodgers keeps Jones in good standing with fantasy owners.

WRGreg Jennings

Greg Jennings

4 rec, 51 yards

It's hard to say what's going on with Jennings right now; nagging injuries, perhaps? What isn't hard to say is that he isn't meeting the demands of fantasy owners. This team has a plethora of viable fantasy weapons, but Jennings is near the bottom of that group.

TEJermichael Finley

Jermichael Finley

3 rec, 45 yards

Reports hinting that Finley will receive his walking papers have seemingly motivated the often aloof tight end. He's tightened his grip on the football, dropping fewer passes, and his production has increased accordingly.

KMason Crosby

Mason Crosby

3 PATs, 2 FGs

What on earth is Crosby still doing in Packers colors? He'll get another shot this week and will probably miss another field goal or two. The matchup may be tempting, but fantasy owners should avoid the risk Crosby brings.

DEFENSE

INT, 3 Sacks

What a difference Clay Matthews makes, not just on passing downs, but as a run stopper as well. The Packers' defense looked fresh last week and should frustrate the Tennessee offense all afternoon.
