Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers week 2 match up

This is one of the nastiest rivalries in the sport, perhaps any sport, and can yield some truly ugly match-ups. On paper, with key injuries on both sides, notably Charles Tillman and Brian Urlacher (who will probably start) for the Chicago Bears, and Greg Jennings severely limited, if playing at all, with a groin injury.

Aaron Rodgers is a sure start, just like he always is. He is simply the most reliable player in fantasy football right now. Win or lose, he will get his. As far as the receivers are concerned, I would look for a big day from Jordy Nelson, and especially Jermichael Findley. The last two meetings between the clubs, he put up four TD’s, and the Bears really do not have a counter for him yet.

Players to Drop back to Free Agency

With so many Fantasy Football players losing their minds after one week, many will be considering adding free agents.  To do so means you must cut players on your team.  Here is our list of 11 players that can safely be cut to add a new stud player from the NFL pool of Free Agents.

Rashad Jennings JAX Jennings was limited in his duties week one because of an injury, oh yeah, and Maurice Jones-Drew is back and shows no affects from his hold out.  Let the man go.
Kendall Wright TEN Wright looked a bit out of sorts early in the Patriots game, but began picking up Regular Season speed over the course of the game.  I’m not sure I would release Wright just yet.  I can see him on the Add list in 2 or 3 weeks

San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers Recap

Take Aaron Rodgers number one overall in all fantasy football formats.  Yeah we said that.  And Rodgers looked good, granted, we all want Rodgers to look great, but he did put up 303 yards, on 30/44 passing, with 2 TD’s (JerMichael Finley, and James Jones) and 1 pick.  The overall production value of Rodgers looks fine on paper, but the on field performance does live up to those pedestrian Rodgers numbers.  The Green Bay quarterback was consistently throwing the ball into small windows, giving little chance for his receivers to make a play on the ball. 

Recent NFL Signings and Transactions – August 15th

Below is a list of recent NFL players to be signed/traded/released.

Biggest news is the TE signing in Dallas, as he will be there to help take the pressure off of Jason Witten as he recovers from a torn spleen (Chris Simms is available for moral support).  The Cedric Benson signing in Green Bay has the most fantasy football relevance at the moment, as he should come in as the starter.  The best signing in recent days may be the Tennessee Titans signing of a run stopping Defensive Tackle in mammoth Michael Jasper.

Obviously the biggest name on the board is former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson.  Johnson served his purpose in Miami, he got ratings into HBO’s Hard Knocks and then was let go.  The alleged spousal abuse didn’t help his chances of sticking around either.
