2022 Week 2: Packers 27, Bears 10 (Dynasty/Fantasy Analysis Game Report)


I don’t think anyone was shocked by this result. The Packers, at home, Sunday Night Football, hosting the young Bears -- and they toyed with them. Maybe a little too much toying. The Bears were hanging around trying to get it to a one score lead in the 4th-quarter, but the Bears were halted by inches for a TD on a 4th & goal and that kinda ended the Bears’ hope.

The Packers raced out to a 24-7 halftime lead and kinda coasted from there with just a field goal in the 2nd-half, but they had a nice lead. Their defense woke up after Chicago took an early 7-3 lead, and GB took over from there.

The Packers are just now getting back some key players. Key OL Elgon Jenkins started this game, so did Allen Lazard…both making their 2022 debuts. If/once David Bakhtiari returns…this Packers team is gonna be tough to deal with when fully healthy.

The Bears are not really going anywhere until they admit Justin Fields is not a franchise QB…so that means they are not going anywhere for at least this season and next.



Fantasy Player Notes…


  -- Allen Lazard (2-13-1/3) debuted and re-aggravated his foot injury and came off limping early on and it looked like an FF dud output was on the way…but he fought through it and kept playing and later scored a TD -- the first of many to come this season.

I am awaiting two practices with Lazard listed as ‘full participant’ before I can get fully excited about Lazard for FF usage. I may use him anyway, but I want those ‘FPs’.


 -- Lazard will be the go-to for Aaron Rodgers (19-25 for 234 yards, 2 TDs/0 INT) but we don’t fully know what that means until we see Lazard 100%.

Christian Watson (3-9-0/3) will help Rodgers/the cause at some point but not yet…he still looks very uncomfortable out there. He’s not fully opening up his game ever since that bad drop to start the 2022 season. He will come around.

Sammy Watkins (3-93-0/4) led all receivers in yards, but that will be Lazard soon when he’s fully ready.


 -- You started to doubt me on the Packers-DST, didn’t you? After Week 1 being choppy (which we didn’t want to use them v. MIN all along)…and after the Bears went down for that 1st-quarter TD and taking the lead, you got worried?

Chicago scored 3 points the rest of the game and Justin Fields (7-11 for 70 yards, 0 TD/1 INT, 8-20-1/7) threw for all of 70 yards.

This Packers defense is good because their secondary is great. Evidenced by Darnell Mooney catching 1 pass for -4 yards on the game. Is it time to give up on Mooney? I wouldn’t. He played a Week 1 monsoon game then faced this GB secondary…his start hasn’t been fair. Being stuck with Justin Fields isn’t fair either.

I wouldn’t try to buy low on Mooney because of the Fields factor, unless real low. Wait until he hits waivers. Which he might in 1-2 more weeks, if more bleh performances. He’s a very good WR, so it’s a shame what’s happening to him.

The GB-DST is usable in a pinch this week. Facing Tampa Bay with all their O-Line and WR issues and Brady looking kinda human (play wise, looking like an alien otherwise) and with the GB defense being so stout…it could work OK. I don’t want to go against Brady if I don’t have to, but I think it’s ‘OK’ here in a pinch.


 -- The Packers are a run game team now, FYI…

33 carries combined for Jones-Dillon, and again…make no mistake…Aaron Jones (15-132-1, 3-38-1/3) is the lead and A.J. Dillon (18-61-0, 1-6-0/3) the #2 who splits touches…but Jones is their desired option in most situations.

Tough sledding this week for the GB run game against the TB run defense…which hurts Dillon, and will get Jones more targets in the passing game.


 -- I think the mainstream is done talking about their favorite sleeper TE, Cole Kmet (0-0-0/1). For the season, in two heavy snap count appearances, Kmet has 2 targets and zero catches.

Kyle Pitts may not be so bad after all!


 -- Bears DE Trevis Gipson (4 tackles, 2 sacks, 3 QB hits) got 2.0 sacks this game, which gives him 7.0 sacks in his last 10 games, 5.0 sacks in his last 5 games.
