Mister Rodgers’ Neighborhood

Especially in tournaments, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense are in a prime spot to produce against a defense he averaged 300-plus yards against last year…and that was without top target Jordy Nelson. Here are my picks for the Week 3 Sunday-Monday NFL slate:

For what it’s worth, Ryan Tannehill stands out to me as the top QB in cash games and the duo of Aaron Rodgers/Drew Brees takes the cake in tournaments.
