Green Bay Packers Analysis
Aaron Jones is primed for a great game this week. Though the 49ers defense is good, they rank 20th in rushing yards allowed and have allowed huge games to running backs over the past few weeks. Over the last four games, the 49ers have allowed an average of 141.3 yards per game. This season, Aaron Jones has averaged 22.1 PPR fantasy points per game. With his consistent production against the 49ers leaky run defense, Jones should have a great game this week.
The Packers receivers may have a tougher test on their hands though. The 49ers rank 2nd in fantasy points allowed to receivers, but they have allowed plenty of big plays to speedy receivers. In the two times that the 49ers played the Cardinals, the 49ers were able to hold Larry Fitzgerald to less than 50 receiving yards. They were also able to hold DJ Moore to 38 receiving yards in week 8. However, they have allowed decent games to fast receivers. In week 10 against the Seahawks, they allowed 70 receiving yards to DK Metcalf and in week 9, they allowed an 88-yard touchdown to Andy Isabella. The deep threat on the Packers is Marquez Valdez-Scantling. He should be able to rip apart this defense, as he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds. Speed kills the 49ers defense, and Valdez-Scantling is the speed on this Packers offense that can beat the 49ers secondary. This also means that Davante Adams will probably not have a great game. He is listed as questionable for this game, but even if he does play, he will likely be shut down by Richard Sherman.

San Francisco 49ers Analysis
The 49ers passing has had a gaping hole without George Kittle in the lineup. Before his injury, Kittle was averaging 14.6 PPR fantasy points per game. The 49ers traded for Emmanuel Sanders to get a reliable receiver, but he is injured and did not practice on Thursday. However, Sanders and Kittle are expected to play on Sunday, so the 49ers passing game should get a huge boost. The Packers defense ranks 22nd in passing yards allowed, so these receivers could have pretty good games if they play. If Sanders and Kittle play, it should mean a decrease in production for Deebo Samuel. Samuel has scored 20+ fantasy points in the last two games, but that trend should not continue if George Kittle comes back from injury.
The production of the receiving game is dependent on how the 49ers run game performs early in the game. In every game, the 49ers try to establish the run game early on to build a solid lead. However, if this fails, the 49ers have to resort to the passing game to win. This happened in the last two weeks, as Jimmy Garoppolo threw the ball 45 times in each of the last two games. If the 49ers do manage to run the ball well, Tevin Coleman should have a great game. This will probably not be the case though. With the Packers high-powered offense, the 49ers will likely have to compete with the Packers by passing the ball a lot.

Daily Fantasy: A Passing Game
Aaron Jones (DK: $7,000, FD: $7,600) should have a great game this week, as he has been very hot and is facing a 49ers defense that has a weak run defense. George Kittle (DK: $6,300, FD: $7,000) should also have a great game, as he is playing the 24th ranked defense in fantasy points allowed to tight ends. Emmanuel Sanders (DK: $6,400, FD: $6,400) should also have a great game as the top receiver in the 49ers offense–that is if he plays this game. My sleeper pick for this game is Marquez Valdez-Scantling (DK: $3,900, FD: $5,100). His speed could burn the 49ers defense deep down the field and his salary is extremely low.
