Donald Driver inactive, fantasy value rises for Greg Jennings, others

Dilip Vishwanat

With Jordy Nelson also out, Aaron Rodgers will have fewer players to target. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver (thumb) is inactive on Sunday, joining receiver Jordy Nelson, running back James Starks, and safety Charles Woodson on the sidelines. Driver is in the twilight of his career, totaling only eight catches for 77 yards and two touchdowns this season, but his absence means more red-zone targets for other Packers.

Green Bay takes on the Chicago Bears in a pivotal division matchup in Week 15.

Fantasy Take: As already noted, Driver is not a fantasy option by any means, but his two touchdowns shows that Rodgers does not ignore him inside the ten. That ups the value of Randall Cobb, Greg Jennings, and James Jones. Jennings has especially been disappointing this year, but the Bears are short a few important players on defense this week.
