With the recent news of Aaron Rodgers broken collarbone, fantasy owners are trying to figure out what to do with their fantasy players on the Packers. With Seneca Wallace leading the offense, Jordy Nelson received the most targets with 9 and seems to be the only Packer wide receiver worth owning. Tight end Andrew Quarless had the second most targets with 7, and he ended up with 5 catches for 34 yards. First year quarterbacks and backups normally try and find a safety blanket, and Quarless could become that guy. He isn’t worth an add now, but keep your eye on him. If you enjoyed the brief success of the Jarret Boykin, realize that you can’t stay bff’s forever and you need to stop letting him hang out with your fantasy football team. James Jones had three targets for one reception that went for 17 yards, and it would be pretty hard for anyone to recommend starting him. Since the receiving game will have their woes until Rodgers is back, James Starks looks like he will be a great flex option going forward. Even before the game, the Packers stated that they would be going with a “hot hand” approach that obviously made Starks more involved. Starks rushed for 40 yards for 1 touchdown and had an impressive 6.7 yards a carry. Eddie Lacy is obviously the main man, but if he were to face any sort of injury, Starks would see a huge increase in workload.
Once we can see the Packers come out with a game plan, we should be able to get a better picture of how things will work out under Seneca Wallace, but as of right now, starting a wide receiver on the Packers may loose you games.
