Packers- Lions: Donald Driver Leads Victory | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings

Green Bay Packers v Detroit Lions

Another Thanksgiving and another team walks in and beats the pants off of the Detroit Lions. Hopefully the NFL will give this game to another team soon as I’m more than tired of watching the Lions pathetic performance on Thanksgiving year after year.

Driver fly’s, Jennings Die’s

This offseason I had Greg Jennings as the fifth best receiver for fantasy football coming into this year. I believed Aaron Rodgers was ready to take another step in his career (which he has) and that would make Jennings one of the best receivers to have in fantasy.

Unfortunately, what I didn’t count on was the fact that Rodgers would be so good at finding his third, fourth and fifth option in his passing game.

Not only that but I didn’t count on the Packers placing strong emphasis on spreading the ball around to six or seven guys weekly.

Green Bay Packers v Detroit Lions

This miss evaluation has killed Jennings fantasy value and has disappointed (your’s truly) fantasy owners all yearlong. Too many weeks we see another receiver like Donald Driver, James Jones or another role player getting the touchdowns and not Jennings.

For the season Jennings has a measly three touchdown scores and that is just not going to cut it in fantasy for a No.1 receiver or a No.2 receiver on your fantasy team.

This week Driver had the big game as the Lions seemed content rolling a safety over to try and stop a three time pro bowl receiver. While that is probably the dumbest thing a team can do you can leave it to the sorry Lions to do just that.

Look for Jennings to continue to be a boom or bust player and usually on the bust side for the rest of the season.

Calvin Johnson Scores

Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson weren’t expected to play in this game as late as Wednesday night. On Thursday both ended up playing and Johnson got an early touchdown score.

That was about the only positive thing this offense did for the entire game as Johnson was noticeably banged up for the entire game.

Look for Johnson and Stafford to come back much healthier next Sunday as they now have ten days to rest and get ready.
