Packers (at Cowboys)
After surrendering 35 points to the upstart Rams at “Jerry World,” Dallas — potentially without its most important non-QBs, Ezekiel Elliott and Sean Lee — welcomes a Packers offense that registered 34 points and 413 yards in January’s postseason thriller. Green Bay is well rested after pulling the curtains down on Mike Glennon’s Bears career last Thursday and has WR Jordy Nelson, who again leads the NFL in receiving touchdowns, after he missed the playoff game. Dallas’ formula of grinding the clock and defenses that catalyzed its 2016 breakthrough has dissipated (No. 23 in time of possession, up from No. 2 a season ago) … with Elliott. Randall Cobb, one week after Rams’ slot Cooper Kupp broke out, Geronimo Allison and rookie Aaron Jones with Ty Montgomery ailing should join the fun of the Packs’ fantasy fixtures.
Must start: Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb
Solid play: Geronimo Allison, Aaron Jones (first check status of Ty Montgomery), Martellus Bennett
