Open Thread: Minnesota at Green Bay

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers
Sunday, November 11th, 2007
This is an open thread for the game.

Inactives from

Inactives: WR Shaun Bodiford, CB Will Blackmon, FS Nick Collins, LB Desmond Bishop, G Tony Moll, TE Bubba Franks, DT Justin Harrell, DT Daniel Muir.

Fantasy take: Donald Lee will continue to see more work at tight end with Franks out. Ryan Grant is active and will start against Minnesota.

Last week WR Ruvell Martin was inactive, but this week it's WR Shaun Bodiford sitting out in favor of WR Koren Robinson. Since Robinson didn't play well on offense, one of Favre's INTs was a pass attempt to Robinson, maybe Ruvell will play as the 4th WR and Robinson will stick to special teams. Grant will start, but the primary value from running backs against Minnesota will be as receivers, so RB Vernand Morency might have more of an impact as the 3rd down back.
Inactives: QB Kelly Holcomb (3rd QB), WR Sidney Rice, DB Mike Doss, CB Antonie Winfield, FB Naufau Tahi, TE Garrett Mills, T Chase Johnson, DE Jayme Mitchell.

Fantasy take: Tarvaris Jackson is active, but Brooks Bollinger will start in Green Bay. Troy Williamson, Robert Ferguson and Bobby Wade will see most of the work at wide receiver. The absence of Doss and Winfield is good news for Green Bay's wide receivers and tight ends.

Winfield always seems to play well against the Packers, so his loss is the Packers gain. Also, Rice had a big game earlier this season against the Packers, so his absence removes the only non-Adrian Peterson weapon that could really hurt the Packers.
