It has been a back-and-forth season for the Packers gunslinger as Rodgers has had a poor week (SEA) - great week (NYJ) - poor week (DET) - great week (CHI) to start 2014. Being that it is a early-week game, Rodgers won't be available to those that play at the DraftKings, but facing the Vikings should allow him to break the cycle and have back-to-back great weeks making many fantasy owners proud.
The Jets have been scorched time-and-time-again this season by opposing passing offenses. Look for it to continue as Rivers, who is averaging 289 yards a week to go along with 2.25 touchdowns, should perform as a top-5 option.
