Here's a look at the Packers' top fantasy football options for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

The Panthers not only lost Pro Bowl MLB Jon Beason (Achilles) for the season in Week One, but they are starting rookie Sione Fua at nose tackle. That should open up the rushing attack for James Starks (a solid No. 3 back) and Ryan Grant (an injury fill-i).

WR Jordy Nelson has the trust of QB Aaron Rodgers, as proven by Nelson' eight targets with six receptions for 77 yards and one touchdown. Look for him one-on-one as defenses focus on WR Greg Jennings and TE Jermichael Finley. Nelson is a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

WR James Jones saw only one target last week and is on the outside looking in. He's going to be inconsistent this season. Bench him this week.

Finley has been limited in practice this week with an ankle injury but it's seen more as precautionary considering his history of injuries. He's a No. 1 fantasy tight end.
