Week 3 Sunday Night Showdown DFS Primer (Packers at 49ers) PREMIUM
The Packers and 49ers meet in San Francisco for the Week 3 Sunday Night Football game. The Packers rebounded from their Week 1 dud by hammering the Lions in the Week 2 Monday Night Football game. Unfortunately, that means they’re on short rest against the 2-0 49ers. Below, I discuss my favorite players and contrarian considerations.
Game: Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers
Spread: SF -3.0 Points
Over/Under: 50.5 Points
Packers Analysis: Aaron Jones stole the show last Monday, scoring four touchdowns with 115 yards from scrimmage and six receptions. He's positioned for another big showing this week. Football Outsiders ranks the 49ers 11th in pass defense Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA), and 16th in run defense DVOA. Thus, Jones should face a bit less resistance than Aaron Rodgers.
