Week 1: Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
Probably the toughest game to pick on the schedule and it’s only the first one. Everyone is going crazy over the 49ers, much like how everyone treated the Packers after 2010. Mike McCarthy has put much focus on beating the 49ers and I think they do it this time, but barely. Notice will be served that the Packers are still among the NFC elite.

While everything on paper is telling me the 49ers are the safe bet here, something inside me feels the Packers will come out on fire against the team that booted them out of the playoffs. I feel good about the Defense – the big question for me is the offensive line. If they can hold up against the 49ers front seven, the Packers are more than capable of winning this game.

Aaron Rodgers isn't out for revenge in Green Bay's season opener. Sure, the 49ers bounced the Packers from the NFC playoffs with a 45-31 win in January, but the former MVP quarterback — who grew up a Niners fan in Northern California — says he and his teammates are simply focused on the task at hand.

MVP: QB Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay)
Rodgers was my highest ranked quarterback in my top-200 and in my fantasy projections and the top quarterback usually wins this award as long as his team makes the playoffs. In his last 45 games, including the playoffs, Rodgers has thrown for 114 touchdowns, 20 interceptions, and 12738 yards. Over 16 games, that’s 41 touchdowns, 7 interceptions...

In case there were any doubts before I think it is safe to say now that the Aaron Rodgers/ Ryan Braun bromance is over.
In case you have been away from a computer for the last few months, Green Bay Packers quarterback and Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun were buddies--that is until Braun lied to Rodgers about taking PEDs.
If it was just the personal lie the relationship...
