The undefeated Green Bay Packers (3-0) will host the winless Atlanta Falcons (0-3) in a Monday Night Football matchup to wrap up Week 4 of the 2020 season. Both teams are dealing with injuries that could affect the fantasy football upside of players on both teams significantly.

Rodgers could be without his favorite target Davante Adams in this one, as the wideout is questionable to play because of a hamstring injury. Equanimeous St. Brown and Allen Lazard are on the IR though, so Green Bay could be very limited through the air. Fortunately for Rodgers, Atlanta has one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL and has given up more points than any team in the league. Taking advantage of the Falcons’ porous secondary and the versatile Aaron Jones could give him an edge. No team scored more points than the Packers through Week 3, so there’s still plenty of fantasy football potential.

Matt Ryan is hoping to have Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley available for the Week 4 matchup, as both are dealing with injuries ahead of Monday. Russell Gage appears to be fine after suffering a concussion, but Atlanta’s offense struggled without two of its top three pass catches against the Chicago Bears in Week 3. Hayden Hurst and Todd Gurley could have to step it up in a big way if Atlanta is missing its two best receivers.

This game could be a dud or a shootout depending on who plays. Here are some ESPN PPR points projections to give you an idea of what you can expect from key players on each side.
