Green Bay Packers Fantasy Spin
Aaron Rodgers completed 17-of-29 passes for 233 scoreless yards in the Packers' 24-16, Week 10 win over the Panthers. The 29 attempts matched a season low for Rodgers, and it was his second touchdown-less effort of the year. Rodgers still played well and made some great throws; Aaron Jones just did all the scoring for the Packers with three rushing touchdowns. Rodgers will have the bye to rest up ahead of a tough Week 12 draw against the 49ers.
San Francisco 49ers Fantasy Spin
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Deebo Samuel (questionable, shoulder) is expected to play in Week 12 against the Packers. Samuel and Emmanuel Sanders (questionable, ribs) are both on track to suit up despite limited practice weeks. The 49ers are also expecting to get TE George Kittle (questionable, ankle) back, giving Jimmy Garoppolo his full support cast for Sunday's matchup with Green Bay. Samuel has been trending up after back-to-back 100-yard games, but his target share is going to take a hit with everyone healthy.
NFL Betting Trends
The Packers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and are 7-3 against the number in their last 10 games overall.
The 49ers are just 9-20-1 against the spread in their last 30 games when facing an opponent with a winning record.
The 49ers vaunted defense will give Rodgers some issues but I’m not going to bypass the opportunity to take the Packers signal-caller catching points. Green Bay is coming off its bye while San Francisco wound up playing nine quarters last week because it went to overtime versus Seattle on Monday night. While the Seahawks beat the 49ers outright as a 7-point underdog, the Cardinals gave the Niners all they could handle last Sunday as a 10-point underdog. The only reason while Arizona didn’t cover was because of a miracle San Francisco touchdown on a failed lateral play by the Cardinals on the final play of the game. I like the Packers, who are 11-5-2 against the spread in their last 18 games versus the 49ers and are 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine trips to San Francisco/Santa Clara.
