Packers fantasy football fallout after Week 14 win over Seahawks

Another dazzling display from the Green Bay Packers offense helped a number of fantasy owners advance in the playoffs.

One opponent you don’t want to see attached to your players in the fantasy playoffs is the Seattle Seahawks. Apparently the Packers didn’t get the memo, dominating the Seahawks, 38-10, at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

Prior to the Monday night game, three Packers receivers sit inside the top-10 at the position for Week 14. Aaron Rodgers ranks second among quarterbacks, the Packers D/ST also rewarding owners brave enough to start them.

Aaron Rodgers lights up Seahawks: Tough matchup? What tough matchup? Rodgers enters Monday as the QB2 for Week 14 after racking up 21 fantasy points, behind only Atlanta’s Matt Ryan.

Rodgers’ calf and hamstring injuries are worth monitoring, but assuming he’s healthy, he’s a must-start in Week 15 against the Bears. The Packers’ pass-happy offense ensures the two-time MVP’s floor remains high.

A new touchdown leader: Nobody in the NFL has caught as many touchdown passes this year as one Jordy Nelson, who notched his 11th and 12th scores of the year on Sunday. Nelson’s two touchdowns made up for a low yardage total (41).

Nelson now has at least one touchdown or 91 yards in each of his past seven games. Not only is he the NFL’s comeback player of the year, he’s also fantasy’s biggest comeback story.

Davante Adams soars through tough matchup: Adams’ great season continued Sunday, the third-year receiver catching four of six targets for 104 yards and a touchdown. He burned Jeremy Lane on the Packers’ opening possession for a 66-yard touchdown, setting the table for another strong fantasy day.

Adams’ low floor remains a concern, but he’s now posted double-digit fantasy points in five of his past eight games, surpassing the 16-point mark on four of those occasions. You don’t sit that kind of upside.

A return to fantasy relevance for Ty MontgomeryAs expected, James Starks‘ workload was reduced significantly, opening the door for Montgomery, who made the most of his opportunity with 86 total yards and a touchdown.

Montgomery won’t become a workhorse back, but he’s a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses and should remain a key cog in the Packers offense. He offers flex appeal the rest of the way.

The rest: Neither Christine Michael (3.60 fantasy points) or Randall Cobb (3.30 points) offered much for fantasy owners. Cobb briefly exited the game with an ankle injury but did return. Jared Cook (1.50 points) did close to nothing before exiting the game with a chest injury.

Future Hall-of-Famer Jeff Janis (7.90 points) matched Thomas Rawls‘ production on just one carry, rushing 19 yards for a touchdown.

For those of you who started the Packers D/ST, congratulations. The unit posted 19.00 fantasy points, behind only the Atlanta Falcons. Five interceptions, three sacks and a fumble recovery will do that for you. All they needed was a touchdown.
