Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Packers beat Vikings, 44-31

  • Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was downright surgical, going 24/29 for 285 yards and a 10 YPA with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s easily the #1 ranked dynasty quarterback.
  • Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy had 94 yards but it took him 29 carries to get there. This will probably be the norm for Lacy – lots of carries as the Packers sit on a lead. The opportunity will be there for many years for Lacy.
  • Packers receiver Jordy Nelson had seven catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Normally a top-20 option when all Packer receivers are healthy, Nelson is a top-10 option when he’s the first option.
  • Meanwhile, a bright spot for Minnesota continues to be middle linebacker Erin Henderson who had 14 tackles and two tackles for a loss. Henderson is on pace for over 150 tackles and, at just 27, should be a LB1/2 in dynasty leagues for at least the foreseeable future.
