The Green Bay Packers returned to their winning ways by toppling the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9 and will now return to Lambeau Field to host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10. Jacksonville hasn’t won since it upset the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 and will lock to knock off the best team in the NFC North.
Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams have use their chemistry to dismantle secondaries all year while the receiving corps has been banged up, and Aaron Jones is no slouch as an all-purpose running back who balances Green Bay’s attack. Reinforcements are on the way, as Allen Lazard will be back sooner than later from the IR. Marquez Valdes-Scantling will have to be enough to support Adams through the air for one more week, but the Packers’ defense will also have to deal with the versatile James Robinson.
Gardner Minshew is expected to miss a second straight game with a thumb injury and will likely be replaced by rookie Jake Luton, who threw for 304 yards and a score against the Houston Texans in Week 9. The young-signal caller could rely on D.J. Chark and Robinson heavily if Laviska Shenault Jr. is ruled out because of his hamstring injury. Jacksonville has struggled to stop anyone from scoring sand could be in for a shootout.
Notable Statistical rankings (Football Outsiders)
Fantasy football start/sit advice
James Robinson, Running Back, $6,600
Robinson has played himself out of a rut. He’s tallied more than 90 yards from scrimmage in two straight games but has seen his price drop ahead of a matchup against one of the worst fantasy defenses against running backs on DraftKings. Robinson could have a big day if he gets involved in the passing game.
D.J. Chark Jr., Wide Receiver, $6,200
The Packers have one of the best defensive around in Jaire Alexander, but the cornerback is in concussion protocol after taking a tough hit in Week 9. Chark is coming off his best game of the season and was targeted 12 times on Sunday. Luton should throw to him often if he’s not tasked with facing an elite stopper.
Aaron Rodgers, Quarterback, $7,900
Rodgers ranks third in passing touchdowns with 24 and is up against a defense that ranks 26th against quarterbacks on Draftkings. He’s thrown for at least three touchdowns six times this season and Jacksonville has no answer for Adams.
Davante Adams, Wide Receiver, $9,000
Adams hasn’t been this pricy all season but he’s so costly because he’s been outrageous lately. He’s scored five touchdowns in his last three games while eclipsing 30 DKFP in each contest. Adams is a lock to reach double-digits in targets and will be the first place Rodgers looks in scoring situations.
