Green Bay finishes out their season going into Detroit to take on the Lions. The Lions have been struggling with David Blough at QB. They have been bit by the injury bug this season. First losing Kerryon Johnson (he’s back now), then Matthew Stafford, TJ Hockenson, and Marvin Jones. It’s tough to win when you lose all those important pieces throughout the season.
The Green Bay Packers clinched a playoff spot last week after their win against Chicago. Now they travel to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Vikings in a crucial divisional matchup. This is the biggest game of season for each team. If the Packers win they lock up the NFC North Division. The Vikings are undefeated at home this season (6-0). They feed off the energy from the home crowd and Kirk Cousins has been playing at the highest level in his career.
The Packers will be at home this week and the word around the locker room coming from Aaron Rodgers is “consistency”. According to Rodgers the team has the pieces to make a deep playoff run. He’s right though about the consistency problem. The Packers have won a variety of ways this season. Whether it’s been because of defense, running the ball, or Rodgers doing his thing, they have all contributed to a win. But when you look more closely at the season the Packers defense hasn’t really been the same since early on in the season. Running the football has been the most consistent thing in the packers offense. In 7 of the 13 games they have ran for over 115 yards but in the other 6 it’s have been under 80 yards. Similar situation for Rodgers as he has had 2 games over 400 yards but 5 games under 200. Not Great. So lack of consistency is the true issue.
After a very ugly loss on Sunday night the Packers will look to get back on track against a struggling Giants team. The Giants have been dealing with injuries on both sides of the ball for a big part of the season. Most notably this week they will be without Golden Tate and Evan Engram. Even though there has been a bunch of injuries and the Giants have been losing, Daniel Jones has been a bright spot for this young team. Jones in his last 5 games has 14 TDs and only 2 INTs. Very impressive stretch for the rookie.
The Green Bay Packers (8-2) take on the San Francisco 49ers (9-1) at Levi’s Stadium. In this pivotal Prime Time Week 12 matchup, the Packers will need to win this game in order to have a chance at acquiring the Number 1 seed in the NFC. I have a gut feeling that George Kittle will be on the field for the 49ers as this is one of the most important games of the season thus far.
A disastrous Week One can often ruin a players morale, especially if they are incredibly hyped up. I was personally never big on Aaron Jones. His high ADP and status as a RB2 is really puzzling. He suffers from the hype brought on by high ceiling with good, but minimal flashes of that potential. These tend to be players who are becoming starters after one or two years of being a role player. Aaron Jones is the Packers full-time starter this season which means more carries, and more pressure. So, should Aaron Jones owners be panicking after a disappointing performance? Or is this a one off game where neither offenses could get moving. Let’s discuss!
It is Thursday SkewNation! That means we finally have football back! In this article I am going to go through all 32 teams and give you my Power Rankings on them heading into week1.
Football is finally back and the first game of the year is a good one. It features last year surprise team the Chicago Bears hosting the Green Bay Packers. When playing DFS rather its Fan Duel or Draftkings or one of the many other sites it always pays to have an edge. It could be a little known stat, an injury or illness that happens right before kickoff or any other small detail.
Wide receivers tend to be a position you can stack up on late and find off the waiver wire and more times then not be okay and have a good core. When you are drafting a wide receiver later in your draft it is all about finding that hidden gem. In this article we will discuss three wide receivers who are going in the 9th round or later that are being slept on and could be that hidden gem you were looking for…
So, you’re draft is starting up and you load into the draft lobby and you realize you have the 7th pick and you have to decide between a back half running back or an elite top 3 wide receiver. Who are you going to chose? Le’Veon Bell or Davante Adams? The choice here is a simple one. You should chose Davante Adams….
It’s about time for one of these articles to address the division that contains the best defense and by doing so let’s start with said defense.
