Fantasy Football Week 10: Looking For A Big Game Against The Vikings

New, comments

According to Football Outsiders, the Vikings aren't very good at covering No. 1 or No. 2 wide receivers. So we should be expecting big fantasy stats from Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson (and Aaron Rodgers, of course). During their earlier game in Minnesota, James Jones was targeted four times (as many times as Nelson was) so he might be just as much of a factor. With the return of Vikings CB Antoine WInfield, maybe Rodgers won't target Jennings quite as much and spread the ball around to his top three wide receivers. 

While Jermichael Finley caught a touchdown against the Vikings back in October, he was only targeted on two pass attempts (both receptions). James Starks had 99 yards from scrimmage, but he's only scored one touchdown this season.

Here's a list of projected Week 10 stats from Yahoo! if you were filling out your entire lineup with only members of the Packers.
