Aaron Rodgers - QB - Packers

Sunday's forecast for Green Bay is calling for "multiple inches" of snow during the day, and the Lions-Packers game on Sunday Night Football could be played on a "snow-covered" field.
The Green Bay players seem genuinely excited for the opportunity to play in a "white-out" of sorts. "We all like to go out there and play in the snow," said RB/FB John Kuhn. The Packers haven't seen a snow game since the 2007 NFC Divisional playoff game against Seattle. Temperatures are expected to be in the low-to-mid 30s, so a rain-snow slush is a real possibility. It should be good for the running games of both teams, but we'd still expect a heavy dose of passing from two of the most pass-happy offenses in the league.

Personally.... I think this makes for a great scene for a prime-time divisional match-up like this. I am looking forward to watching this one. Maybe not ideal for fantasy purposes though. Something to keep an eye on....

As long as it is not high winds it should not affect the passing game that much. Snow is actually fun to play in, the receiver gains an advantage as it is much harder for the DB's to back-pedal, plant and break on the ball. Plus, the defender has to react and that often causes a slip - more broken tackles and defenders falling to the ground.

Still, with the bad weather I am glad I have a bye because I have Stafford, Calvin, Leshoure and Pettigrew. I will be able to watch this one without having to check scores and stats and can fully enjoy seeing the Lions finally break the streak of losses at Lambeau

Should make for an awesome game to watch.

I am starting Megatron obviously but I am considering Green in the flex spot

Traded Bradshaw and Newton for Stafford and D. Richardson after week 7 when I was 3-4. Won 6 in a row to finish 9-4, 1st place and won Points total by almost 200 as a result with:

QB - Stafford
RB - ADP, Spiller, Leshoure
WR - Megatron, Wayne, Dez
TE - Pettigrew and Olsen
K - Bailey
D - ww matchup using Houston for 15 and 16

Lions offense just needs to play well against Arizona and @Home against Atlanta

He calls himself honolulu-blue! Then again almost all my 7 leagues are named after SUH or Detroit based! But I barely have any Lions on my fantasy team!

Hoping for a shootout as well.

Wind is honestly the only thing that matters and even then, it has to be severe

Yes but what if you also have Josh Freeman on your bench playing Philly in Tampa and you still remember losing week 11 because Green Bay pick sixed Stafford like three times? I might consider my alternatives then.

It's amazing how Calvin can get 20+ fantasy points in the same week Stafford gets 12.

All good Honolulu_Blue...! What you posted about receiver advantage was actually very informative!

Maybe you shouldn't have mentioned having so many Lions on one team... Stafford, Megatron, LeShoure and Pettigrew... Whoa is right! Plus your call sign Honolulu_Blue!!! Haha! Homer for sure!

My leagues are ::

DEADLY tSUH-nami
THE GREAT WALL OF SUH

So 5 out of 7 are Detroit Lion referenced... lol. You ain't the only homer! But I barely have multiple Lion players on my teams!
