Carolina Panthers Analysis
Christian McCaffrey has played a major role in the Panthers’ success this season. He is listed a questionable for this week but there is no way that they leave him out for this game. Kyle Allen hasn’t played as well as Cam Newton would have but the Panthers are 5-3, so he hasn’t done that bad. Curtis Samuel has also risen to make a name for himself this year. He remains just behind D.J. Moore for being the number one receiver but does have 3 more total touchdowns than Moore.
You beat the Packers by stopping their offense. The Chargers were able to successfully do this last week, holding them to just 11 points which is their lowest point total on the season. The Panthers have flaunted a decent defense but they will need to play even better than average if they want to beat the Packers. In their last four games, the Packers have allowed an average of 24 points with no more than 26 and no less than 22 in a game. The Panthers will be in good shape if they can limit the Packers to 20.

Green Bay Packers Analysis
The Packers looked completely off last week against the Chargers. When the two weeks prior they scored 42 and 31 points, it was a weird anomaly for them to only put up 11. On 35 attempts, Aaron Rodgers threw for just 161 yards. Compared to the 35 passing attempts, they ran the ball just 11 times with one being a Rodgers scramble. Aaron Jones had 30 yards on 8 carries which shouldn’t be the case. Especially with Davante Adams not at full health, it is important for the Packers to get their run game going.
The Panthers’ weakness is their run defense. They have allowed a total of 133.4 rushing yards per game with is seventh-highest in the league. On top of that, they have allowed the most rushing touchdowns in the NFL with 14. In fact, that is 4 more than the next highest team. The Packers should be utilizing Aaron Jones a lot more in this game than they did against the Chargers which should get them a lot higher than 11 points.

Daily Fantasy: Aaron Jones
Aaron Jones should be a monster in this game. The Panthers’ run defense has been very loose, especially in the red zone. They have allowed the most rushing touchdowns this season by a considerable margin. Jamaal Williams may take a few carries away from Jones as a change-of-pace back but the majority will be going to Jones. His workload will be rising considerably from the last game. It may not be as crazy as his game against the Chiefs in which he had 159 receiving yards on top of his 67 rushing yards, but he should be busy again.
