Packers vs. 49ers: Fantasy football projections featuring Aaron Rodgers, Colin Kaepernick, Randall Cobb

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 1 matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers.

The 2013 NFL season is underway, and Week 1 features a potential playoff preview right off the bat. The San Francisco 49ers host the Green Bay Packers in the FOX Game of the Week. There is a good chance your or your opponent will have at least one player in this game.

To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup each week of the 2013 season, we've got game-by-game player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Green Bay Packers

It all starts with Aaron Rodgers. The Packers passing attack is as good as any out there, even when Rodgers loses some of his receiving options. Greg Jennings is gone, but Randall Cobb is likely set to take his place as the team's big play-maker. But don't forget about Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley. Additionally, the Packers have invested heavily in their run game with Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin.

San Francisco 49ers

Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers lost their top receiving option when Michael Crabtree went down with a torn Achilles. Who will step up now? We'll have to see whether it's all about Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin, or if one of the young receivers will make a name for himself. And of course, we can't forget that Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter will be getting plenty of touches all day long.
