Week 3 Monday Night Football Preview: Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears & Fantasy Football Implications

Brandon Jackson

An old school NFC North Battle of undefeated teams.  Green Bay is loaded with talented fantasy players Aaron Rodgers, Jermichael Finley, Donald Driver, Brandon Jackson; if you have them, you are starting them.  We also get a second look at Brandon Jackson, if you started him last week he didn't kill you, but let's hope he continues to grow with the offense.  Green Bay is a juggernaut, it's hard to imagine any team slowing them down.

Chicago is a bit of a surprise thus far, Jay Cutler has taken to the Mike Martz offense and Matt Forte has done a nice job of impersonating Marshall Faulk.  

At this point  the  No. 1 receiver is unclear.  Coming into the season everyone was expecting Devin Aromashadu to make the "leap."  Well, he made the "leap" to the bench and didn't record a single catch in week two.  Johnny Knox has been consistently involved over the first couple weeks and we even saw good old Devin Hester make a nice one handed grab for a touchdown last week. 

Still, if there is a go to guy in Chicago, it's Matt Forte, who has seen heavy involvement in the passing game over the first couple of weeks.

Both teams have solid defenses, so the most likely scenario is that neither team goes crazy and we have a score in the 20's with solid fantasy stats on all sides.  

That being said, Green Bay is so good a complete annihilation is always a possibility.   I mean, Jay Cutler has to revert back to the norm (4 interceptions in a half and sulking) at some point, right?  

Green Bay is for real, after tonight we’ll know if Chicago is a legitimate contender (with dependable fantasy options) or if they are just a nice two week flash in the pan.
