Fantasy Rewind - Week 15
Woof. Ugh. Ouch. Yikes.
Choose any of these words - or add your own - to describe the fantasy performance by the Packers offense this past week in Buffalo. I hope you weren't in the majority of fantasy owners who lost their playoff match-ups thanks to the 6.1 point output from Rodgers or the 5.5 points posted by Jordy Nelson. They were bad. Real bad.
The only bright fantasy spots from Sunday's game were thanks to Eddie Lacy and Randall Cobb. Lacy rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown on the day, which was good enough to get owners a respectable 16.8 fantasy points. Lacy should have had a much larger day, but the offense continued to unsuccessfully test the air space above the Bills secondary. We all know how that went.
Cobb squeaked out a respectable 11.1 points for fantasy owners as well. He caught seven passes for 96 yards, and rushed the ball three times for 15 yards. This was still good enough to rank 14th for wide receivers this week. Gives you a good sense of how many big players bombed this week...
Take note, the Buffalo defense did the exact same thing to Peyton Manning and the vaunted Broncos offense last week. Who would've thought it could've been done again to Rodgers? Might as well chalk it up for Week 16 as well, as the Bills travel to Oakland. But I doubt you're starting any Raiders if you've made it to the fantasy championship!
