Week 3: vs Denver Broncos - $3000

All WR vs DEN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Aaron Rodgers got off to a hot start last week with all but 66 of his 209 passing yards coming in the first half. By Rodgers standards, however, it has been a slow start to the season with just 412 passing yards through the first two games. This team has gone up against a couple of very tough defenses, though, so that helps to explain the quiet start. Davante Adams has been the top target in both games for the Packers, and he bounced back with an impressive stat line last week by hauling in seven of nine targets for 106 yards despite tough coverage from Xavier Rhodes. Geronimo Allison was targeted five times and had the only touchdown last week. This was good news after he finished with no targets in Week 1, but Allison did lose a fumble while also getting called for a holding penalty--so he may be on thin ice with the coaching staff. Marquez Valdes-Scantling saw six targets for the second straight week, but he missed out on landing a big play and finished with just 19 yards. That was better than tight end Jimmy Graham, however, as Graham was held without a catch on just two targets despite playing a higher rate of snaps than in Week 1 when he scored a touchdown. Stats from the Broncos secondary looked great last week, but they were facing off against a struggling Mitchell Trubisky who has been unable to do anything with the Bears passing offense this season. With last week coming as a bit of an outlier, it is tough to get a good read on this Broncos secondary. Kareem Jackson does look to be a very solid addition while Chris Harris Jr. has also looked good to start the season as both players have split time covering the slot. Isaac Yiadom, however, has been an absolute liability on the outside and would be a very exploitable matchup for Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling if he still sees playing time with the possible return of Bryce Callahan. Callahan has been sidelined with a foot injury since joining the Packers from Chicago, but he is hopeful to return this week. The Broncos pass rush has notably fallen far short of expectations to start this season, as they are the only team in the league that has yet to record a sack. That is inexcusable given the talent they have in Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. The Packers have a talented offensive line that has performed well in pass protection to start the season though, so it will not get easier for the struggling Broncos pass rushers. However, with signs pointing to veteran linebacker Todd Davis also making his season debut from injury this week, that pass rush and coverage in the middle of the field should be improved. Keep a close eye on Friday practice report, as this matchup would be upgraded to Good if Callahan is unable to suit up due to the significant advantage the Packers outside receivers would have over cornerback Isaac Yiadom.
