Here's a look at some of the Packers' fantasy football options this week:

RB James Starks had 101 offensive yards and was utilized 19 times against Denver, showing he can handle the job when needed. Ryan Grant returns this week, making Starks a No. 2 and Grant a No. 3 or flex-position fantasy back.

Everyone's wondering if WR Jordy Nelson is an every-week fantasy play. He's averaging 5.3 targets for 3.8 receptions, 73 yards and 0.8 TDs per game. He's a solid No. 3 receiver every week.

Don't look too deep into WR Donald Driver's 3-20-1 and James Jones' 3-48-1 game as they were a byproduct of QB Aaron Rodgers' great game. They are, at best, depth players on large rosters.

WR Greg Jennings has gone from solid No. 1 to elite status. He has a two-game average of 8.5 targets for eight receptions, 111 yards and 0.5 TDs. 

TE Jermichael Finley sunk like a rock against Denver with a 3-28-0 performance after a three-TD game the previous week. This happens with deep teams, and with Jennings playing elite ball, it will happen again. However, Finley is still an elite tight end.
