Buffalo Bills opponent fantasy football recap: Green Bay Packers defense dominates

Pitching a shutout is one way to add big-time fantasy thunder from your D/ST spot

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Green Bay Packers Wisconsin-USA TODAY NETWORK

The Green Bay Packers routed the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, winning a 22-0 game that could have been much worse. The Bills offense was unable to do much of anything, and the Packers were able to move the ball almost at will when they possessed it.

While there weren’t too many breakout fantasy football performances for the Bills’ opposition, there were plenty of players who could have been big contributors to a fantasy victory. Here were the highest scoring Packers on the week.

RB Aaron Jones

Green Bay’s top running back had a solid, if unspectacular day. He rushed for 59 yards and a touchdown, and he added 1 reception for 17 yards, as well. Overall, Jones scored 14.7 points on the afternoon, which is the highest score for a Packers running back this season. Jones is only available in 28% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, but if your league is one of them, he would be a great add.

QB Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers was his usual steady self, throwing for 298 yards and 1 touchdown; however, he did commit two turnovers (1 interception, 1 lost fumble) in the game. If your league gives out bonus points for 300-yard games, you were probably upset that he couldn’t just add 2 more yards, but if your league doesn’t do that, then you were probably fine with the 16 points Rodgers scored anyway.

Green Bay D/ST

The highest-scoring team defense of the week was Green Bay, as their shutout led to big bonuses in most leagues. Combine that with 3 force turnovers, all of which were committed by rookie quarterback Josh Allen, and 7 sacks, and the Packers turned in a dominant afternoon in real life and in the fantasy football realm.
