Captain – Aaron Rodgers $18,600
Although Rodgers is going against the number 1 defense in football, he is arguably the best quarterback in the game. The defense of Chicago could scare people away from Rodgers, but it is hard to turn down such talent.
Flex – David Montgomery $8,200
It may seem to be a bold move taking a rookie running back for week 1, but at this price point and projected ownership it is tough to beat. Green Bay has a weak run defense and Montgomery is going to get a good workload in the run game and catch some passes as well.
Flex – Davante Adams $12,600
If you are going to go with Rodgers as your captain, it makes sense to pair him with his favorite target. Davante Adams is worth the price on the sheer volume of targets he will get.
Flex – Marquez Valdes-Scantling $6,800
MVS showed some flashes last season and will look to get started hot week 1. With Davante Adams drawing most of the defensive coverage, MVS could get open early and often.
Flex – Adam Shaheen $400
Shaheen is used frequently in the Bears offense as a blocker and his price allows you to have more studs in your lineup. He has the potential to catch a goaline play action pass touchdown and will be the value play of the night.
Flex – Eddy Pinerio $3,400
In a showdown lineup, you need to make sure you are giving you self a chance to win. In this lineup, we are stacked with Green Bay players already, so if they play well and score touchdowns, Mason Crosby will probably not score often. In this case, we are going with the new Bears’ kicker and hoping they stall out on some drives in the redzone.
