McFadden and Decker are obvious choices. Chosing between Nelson and Lloyd is really tough. On one hand, Seattle is nearly unstoppable at home. On the other hand, Houston is the hottest team in the league and their defense has been lights out. I give the slight edge to Nelson because the Packers badly need a win and Arodg will be at his best.

Thanks for the help so far.

Here are my concerns:

McFadden is obvious - he's only averaging about 14 touches a game (12 carries and two receptions per game). He's only had one 100+ yard game (where half the yardage came on one play) and the rest have been below 40 yards. I'm just not 100% Oakland is going to work him into the game-plan more and I'm not sure if he's figured out the zone blocking scheme yet.

Jordy Nelson has been somewhat of a bust so far. He has yet to break 100 yards receiving and only has a single TD for the year. Even though he's averaged about 8 targets a game over the last two weeks, he's only produced in one (96 yards and TD against a terrible NO defense). Is this a product of Nelson playing sub-par or Rodgers making poor passes? My guess is the former and not the latter.

Brandon Lloyd is only averaging 6 targets and 3 receptions a game over the last two weeks. Over this time, both Welker's targets and receptions have steadily increased. More importantly, Lloyd has only been targeted in the redzone twice over the last two weeks. I'm starting to think there are too many mouths to feed and this 'super hurry-up' offense (70+ plays a game) is favoring 'Welker-style' routes.
