While WR Greg Jennings once again shapes up as by far the Packers’ most likely fantasy force a few evenings from now, four other Green Bay receivers — WRs James Jones and Jordy Nelson and TEs Donald Lee and Tom Crabtree — could be fantasy factors against the Cowboys because of injuries to WR Donald Driver and TE Andrew Quarless.

With Driver having been ruled out of the Cowboys game with a thigh injury, both Jones and Nelson should get their share of receiving opportunities against a Cowboys pass defense that allowed the Jaguars four TD passes last week. Jones is probably a better bet to be a fantasy force than Nelson; four of his receptions have gone 30 yards or more, and he is gaining an impressive 14.9 yards per catch.

Lee and Crabtree could be called upon to pick up the slack for Quarless, who is unlikely to play because of a shoulder injury. It’s worth noting that Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis had TDs on his only two catches last week, including a 42-yarder in the second quarter.
