Here are some of the Packers' fantasy football options this week:
QB Aaron Rodgers continues playing at an elite level and is on pace to throw 48 TD passes. He's clearly the best fantasy player in the game.
As the weather gets cold, don't be surprised to see the Packers give RB James Starks more opportunities. He's also becoming the primary back in the time-share with Ryan Grant. Starks is a flex-play.
In the past five games, WRs Greg Jennings and James Jones both have four TD receptions and Jordy Nelson has three TD catches. Even Jones is a fantasy play in larger leagues.
TE Jermichael Finley has two consecutive weeks with a TD but he has been held scoreless in five of the first eight games. Those are underwhelming numbers based on expectations but he's still a No. 1 tight end.
The Packers' defense had a monster game last week with three interceptions and two TDs, busting many fantasy matchups open. They have another great matchup this week against rookie QB Christian Ponder.
