Neither Aaron Rodgers nor Greg Jennings had put up the numbers owners were expecting during the season's first half, but Sunday proved that the second half could be a different story.

Likely re-evaluating their offensive priorities during the Week 10 bye, the Packers came out firing Sunday at Minnesota, resulting in both Rodgers and Jennings having their best outings of 2010. The QB threw for 301 yards and four TDs, and his top wideout hauled in seven passes for 152 yards and three scores in the runaway win.

While Rodgers hadn't been playing poorly prior to Sunday, his season résumé was lacking the multiple marquee performances that the No. 1 fantasy QB is supposed to have. But he has strung together a couple in a row now, and with a bevy of soft pass defenses coming up on the schedule, he could be in for a monumental end to the '10 slate.

Jennings, meanwhile, also fell short of being a top-tier fantasy player in the opening nine contests, with no multi-TD efforts and just one 100-yard game. But Rodgers made a concerted effort to get him the ball this week, and it resulted in a career outing. He should also benefit greatly from Green Bay's upcoming schedule and be one of the top fantasy wideouts down the stretch.
