Week 2: vs Minnesota Vikings

All TE vs MIN

FBG says: Tough matchup. Aaron Rodgers passed for just 203 yards and one touchdown in a very tough season opener against the Bears. That Bears defense can make even the best of quarterbacks look silly. Rodgers faced consistent pressure, was hit 11 times with five sacks, and had nine passes defended--a truly difficult day at the office. Rodgers did miss the entire preseason, so he very well may have been shaking off some rust as he flashed at times, but was unimpressive on the whole. Davante Adams was kept in check during the opener but was still the top target for Rodgers. Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the team in receiving on the heels of a 47-yard bomb that made up all but five of his total receiving yards from four receptions. Jimmy Graham also found the end zone and is already halfway to matching his 2018 touchdown total. He still has a size advantage over almost any defensive back and certainly used it to make that touchdown catch last week. The Vikings secondary did a solid job against the Falcons receiving group as they limited big plays while holding top receiver Julio Jones to just 31 yards as he hauled in only six of 11 targets. Xavier Rhodes can be to blame for that impressive performance that should put a damper on the upside of Davonte Adams this week as he can expect to see a ton of Rhodes on shadow coverage. Slot cornerback Mackenzie Alexander suffered a dislocated elbow in Week 1 and is expected to miss this game, leading to Geronimo Allison squaring off against backup cornerback Jayron Kearse. Kearse is a big, physical defensive back who played well in relief of Alexander last week and matches up size-wise against Allison, so don't be quick to assume Allison has an advantage here. If coverage from these cornerbacks was not enough, the Vikings also have a couple of the league's top safeties over the top along with strong pass rush that should content pretty evenly with the Packers offensive line. There are no matchup advantages to be found for the Packers as they face another very difficult test this week.

Packers | Jace Sternberger has high ankle sprain (Tue Sep 3, 08:33 PM) - Updating a previous story, Green Bay Packers TE Jace Sternberger (ankle) was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain, sending him to the injured reserve Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Our View: Sternberger is going to miss at least half the season. If he returns this year, the rookie will work behind Jimmy Graham. This injury stinks, but we still like Sternberger as a dynasty prospect.
