Fantasy Football: Green Bay Packers On The Bye

Fantasy football owners of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers are probably resigned to a rough week, or maybe even a loss. If you're like me, you've got some (or maybe many) Packers on your team. One of my teams has Jennings, Nelson, Crosby, and the defense, so I had to make four roster moves just to field a team.

Obviously if a player like RB DeMarco Murray is somehow available in your league (to replace LaGarrette Blount, I chose Earnest Graham over Murray last week, and I obviously chose wrong), he should be picked up ASAP. However in my leagues, I'm picking over players who are likely available anywhere.

WR Malcom Floyd. It hasn't been a great year for the San Diego offense, but he's averaging over 20 yards/reception. One long touchdown reception would make his start worth it.

WR Lance Moore. He hasn't had much of a year either, but he's got a great matchup next Sunday against the Rams.

TE Heath Miller. Not one of the sexier tight ends of the year, but he's got a great matchup against the Patriots. They have trouble covering tight ends, and with one of the lesser pass rushes in the league, Miller shouldn't be asked to block the entire game.

RB Knowshon Moreno. He's done nothing this season, but Willis McGahee is out and I'm hoping Tebow throws a lot of dump off passes to his running backs.
