Packers Vs. Falcons Fantasy Football Update: Michael Turner And Aaron Rodgers Shine In NFC Showdown

Behind the solid running of Michael Turner, the Atlanta Falcons beat the Green Bay Packers, 20-17. Turner carried 23 times for 110 yards and one touchdown. This is the sixth 100-yard game this season for Turner and the fourth time in the last five games that he’s reached that plateau. He’s officially healthy and returning to his 2008 form.

In a losing effort, Aaron Rodgers delivered a winning fantasy performance for his owners. He threw for 344 yards on 26 of 35 passing and added 51 yards on 12 carries and one rushing touchdown.

Greg Jennings, our start of the week, finished with five catches for 119 yards but did not get into the endzone. Our sit of the week, Brandon Jackson, finished with 10 carries for 26 yards. You’re welcome.

Jordy Nelson added 61 yards and one touchdown for the Packers while Tony Gonzalez (six catches for 51 yards and one touchdown) and Matt Ryan (198 yards passing and one touchdown) also had nice fantasy days for the Falcons.
