Suuuuuuh dude? This is kind of how I look in my bed this morning after hitting bets on the Lions, Chiefs, Troy, Boise St Oregon Over, Capitals, Lightning, and Penguins yesterday. #CHILLIN. Today I want to talk about the return of Aaron Rodgers and what it means for the Packers. Can they still make the playoffs? They could but they are going to need some help. They also have some tough games to play over the next three weeks. Panthers today, Vikings next week (defense is sending Rodgers Christmas cards already), and then the season finale against the Lions. I think they can win out and they are going to have to if they want to get in the playoffs. It'll be interesting to see how his throws look early but from the sounds of it, he's slinging it again. Three weeks ago he was throwing the ball 50+ yards so he will be good to go if he needs a last second Hail Mary in Detroit in week 17 to win and get in the playoffs.....not that he hasn't already been there and done that but it would be exciting to see that again. The return of Rodgers is also great for fantasy players. Wide receivers for the Packers are relevant again! It may be late for some of you but others can feel confident to play Packers receivers with Rodgers back. Rodgers is the second priced healthy QB on Fanduel today only behind Brady. The Panthers have been solid against the pass this year and rank 7th in passing yards allowed at 212 per game. I'll take the over on that today. Rodgers player prop is listed at 266.5. I'll take the over on that too. I like the Packers to hit the Panthers with the hurry up offense and put up some numbers. So sit back, enjoy the return of Rodgers and feel confident to play him in fantasy / bet on him.
Free play for you: TEASER
Packers to (+9)
Ravens to (-1)
Packers breakdown - Rodgers is back and that obviously makes them a completely different team. They were 4-1 before he went down with his injury and the one loss was to the Falcons who they got down to early. The Packers will hang around today and put up a good fight with the Panthers. I love the tease to get them at (+9). GO PACK GO!
Ravens breakdown - a team that should have beat the Steelers last week. They had them beat. Some people may argue that the Steelers are the best team in the league and the Ravens had them on the ropes. Well today, the Ravens get to take on the worst team in the league (and no one can debate that). Sorry @12ozSports (follow these guys if you aren't already). Needless to say, I don't think the Ravens have any problem covering the teaser at (-1) today. I also like their defense in fantasy and I'm expecting them to force some turnovers. The first time they played the Browns this season they put up 17 Fanduel points with 3 sacks and 4 picks.
