Midwest Sports Fans:

Here is my squad:
As you can see, I’m taking chances on guys like Kendall Hunter and Vincent Brown, who were explosive in Week 10 but who we don’t know if we can trust yet. (Personally I think Hunter gets more carries than Gore this week since San Fran has zero incentive to play Gore unless he’s 100% healthy).
Whenever I do games like this I always end up trying to balance my roster out, so I take good but not great players at most positions. This time I decided to say screw that philosophy. I clicked on Aaron Rodgers and Adrian Peterson first and second – the two most expensive players this week – both of whom I think have great matchups for explosive weeks. Then I looked for value with high upside at the rest of the positions, which I think I found.
My question to you is: what will your team look like? Go sign up and then leave your roster down in the comments. And then let’s see who finishes the best out of the all the MSFers who play this week.
And did I mention that if you finish in the top 6 you get money? Real money. 1st place gets a cool $75. Not too shabby…when it’s free to enter!

Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes and the Green Bay Packers survived a scare from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 35-26 victory Sunday. With the Packers leading by two points and trying to fend off a rally by Tampa Bay in the fourth quarter, Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for a clinching 40-yard touchdown with 2:55 left in the game -- Nelson's second TD catch of the afternoon.
Lost in all of the MVP hype surrounding Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been the defense, or lack there of.
It’s a perfect ten for the Green Bay Packers. Although today’s victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wasn’t always pretty, the Packers moved to 10-0 with a 35-26 win, and they continue to look like the best team in the league by a wide margin. How good is Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers right now? So…
The Bears took a huge step toward the playoffs with their victory last week against the Lions. This week, they get a chance to take a step toward a level many people didn’t think they’d have a shot at reaching: the Packers. Philip Rivers and the Chargers aren’t Aaron Rodgers and the Packers...
