Green Bay Packers Fantasy Football Projections

Updated: January 24, 2021


Below you will find our fantasy football projections for the Green Bay Packers for their matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerPAPCYDSTDINTRushYDSTDFP
Aaron Rodgers31.820.7246.520.452.49.40.1118.56
The favorite to win the MVP award, Rodgers led the league in completion percentage (70.7%), passing touchdowns (48) and TD% (9.1) as well as INT% (1.0) and passer rating (121.5). In his age-37 season, he led the league's highest-scoring offense. The one game that did not look like the others this season was his performance against the Buccaneers, where Rodgers completed less than half of his pass attempts (16-of-35) for 160 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in a 38-10 road loss. While the Buccaneers have a talented defense, we should expect a much better performance from Rodgers at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Aaron Jones13.860.70.552.621.30.1313.58
One year after leading the NFL in touchdowns (19, 2019), Jones averaged a career-high 5.89 yards per touch and 104.2 YFS per game for the league's top-scoring offense in 2020. Jones had his least efficient performance of the season against the Buccaneers in Week 6 when he carried the ball 10 times for 15 yards and a touchdown and added three catches for 26 yards. Even though the Buccaneers have one of the league's best run defenses, Jones is the top option at what is the weakest position of the two-game slate.
Jamaal Williams7.3310.11214.50.126.93
Williams had 12 carries for 65 yards against the Los Angeles Rams last week. In his past six games, Williams has 17, five, 10, one, five and 12 carries, respectively. Even though the number of his carries has been all over the place recently, Williams will likely finish in the range of 8-12 touches on Sunday.
A.J. Dillon3.414.60.070.21.50.012.19
Given that the Packers involve multiple running backs in their game plan, Dillon could have some fantasy viability if Williams (ankle, questionable) isn't able to go or reaggravates his injury on Sunday.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Davante Adams6.8830.8500016.8
Despite missing two games, Adams led the NFL in receiving touchdowns (18) and yards per game (98.1) and also set a career high in receptions (115). With double-digit touchdowns in four of five seasons, Adams has a total of 58 scores in 71 games over that span. It was a modest outing (6/61) in the first matchup this season against the Buccaneers as Adams returned from a two-game absence, but he then went he scored in 11 of 12 games including last week's win over the Los Angeles Rams. Wide receiver is loaded on a such a small slate with the top three receivers being more of a 1(a)-1(b)-1(c) than a clear 1-2-3 in our wide receiver projections.
Allen Lazard3.142.30.260.10.707.41
Hauling in four catches for 96 yards and a touchdown, it was the best game for Lazard since returning from his core injury in late-November. With the Buccaneers focusing on slowing down Adams and running back Aaron Jones, it could be a tertiary option for the Packers (such as Lazard) that becomes the difference-maker for this weekend's two-game slate.

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Robert Tonyan3.742.60.50009.11
Breaking out in his third season, Tonyan scored the third-most fantasy points among tight ends in 2020 and tied Travis Kelce for the positional lead in touchdowns (11) this season. While Aaron Rodgers often looks his way in the red zone, the third-year tight end had only two games with more than five targets this season.
Marcedes Lewis0.77.40.070001.51
Dominique Dafney0.22.30.020000.45
