    I did too well last week, so let’s see if I can go ahead and lose us some more units, yeah? I think this is an interesting one for fantasy managers as many of us may be looking at guys like Jordan Love this season and asking ourselves: Should I really start him over Joe Flacco? Does this game mean anything to either team?

    Main Storylines to Watch

    Looking to the Future: The Packers technically have about a 22% chance to make the playoffs, according to the NY Times, but they know they are a flawed football team and are likely much more concerned with evaluating their guys for next season and beyond. Aaron Jones is the healthiest he’s been since Week 1 in a game against a team that the rest of the NFL just totally ran over all season long. Do they follow this easy win script or do they let Jordan Love loose?

    Nothing: I find literally nothing interesting about the Panthers. They are starting to worry they took the wrong guy in Bryce Young, and it’s far too early to think that way. It’s very clear that Chuba Hubbard is functioning more as an RB1 now and that they’re trying to get away from targeting Adam Thielen so heavily, but otherwise, there’s just not much to read into here.
