How frequently can I keep going back to the Brees bandwagon in this article? Watch me, baby! Let's make it three weeks in a row! Listen, only Cutler has put up a 4 TD game this season, so I've actually done you a favor by having you punt your top spot with Brees! Okay, you're not buying it. But listen. THIS is the game!! Brees and his offense are going to be aware that the Vikings were utterly terrible against the pass last year, and they're using Khiry Robinson in the back field, so it's not like he demands red zone attention. If there's a week to play Brees, I guess this is the one!
I went back and forth on this one, but in a game that stands to be pretty high scoring and back and forth, I think I like Stafford's chances to put up numbers a little bit more than Rodgers'. The Packers have more of a history of running in the red zone, and the Lions will often just use their short passing game to Bush or Bell in short yardage situations. I think there's a decent chance that Stafford leads the whole NFL in passing this week.
All purpose yards
With 217 total yards this season, McCoy has been all you can really hope for from a total yards perspective this season. He's been touching the ball a ton, and I don't see any reason that shouldn't continue against the Redskins' middle of the road defense.
You could certainly make the case for Johnson in the receptions category (like you could every week), but I love stacking him with the Stafford TD play and hoping that they wind up hooking up early and often against the Pack. Green Bay doesn't have a true shut down corner, and I think this allows Stafford to call Megatron's number over and over.
Another nice stacking opportunity, Brees has been looking at his monster of a tight end a TON this season. He's 4th in all of the NFL in targets, and as a tight end, he'll convert more of those targets than your average wide receiver.
It'd be crazy not to take the NFL's leading targets leader, who also happens to be leading by a staggering 20%. Rodgers looked his way 17 times last week, and he won't need to look his way that many times in order to make Nelson one hell of a play in the targets category.
