The Fantasy Football Implications for World Champ Pack

The Superbowl was entertaining. Now, how does it affect my fantasy football draft next year? Well, for one thing Aaron Rodgers will go in the first round. That’s a given. Even though Greg Jennings started the year soft he finished strong. This will cement his position in the top tier of WRs in fantasy play. As I have always preached I’m all about the upside play.

Jordy Nelson did drop some big balls in this Superbowl. However, Mr Rodgers keep chucking the rock his way. Nelson finished with 9 grabs for 140 yards and a TD. His 15 targets were the most of any GB receiver. Nelson was gonna make or break this Superbowl. I vouched many times through the past fantasy season that James Jones was going to emerge as a playmaker in GB. It didn’t happen and I’m concerned we will see more of the same in 2011-12.

This Superbowl told me one thing. Grab Jordy Nelson over James Jones in next years fantasy football draft. Donald Driver may decide to hang it up after winning this Superbowl. Even if he doesn’t there is no doubt that his role will be reduced next year. Jordy Nelson is the future at WR2 on GB.

The GB offense is now right up there with the New Orleans fantasy offense. I would argue the tandem of Jennings/Nelson is better then Colston/Meachem. I’m not saying James Jones is a total bust. In fact, I might double dip and load up on both Nelson and Jones going into next years PPR serpentine draft. I’m sure you can get both guys in round 10 or later. Especially if the almighty dollar causes Driver to continue to play. If Driver does hang it up you may have to move up to round 8 to grab Nelson.
