Matt LaFleur labelled the Green Bay Packers' display in their 37-8 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers "unacceptable" and "concerning". Green Bay are now in a tie atop the NFC North with the Minnesota Vikings - both teams owning an 8-3 record - after managing just 198 yards and a one-of-15 third-down conversion rate at Levi's Stadium.

Rodgers has also seen his passer rating jump 18 points up to 118.7 as he will look to take Matt LaFleur's rolling offense to L.A. to face the Chargers. The Bolts have seen the weakest stretch of opposing QBs over the last five weeks: M.Trubisky, R.Tannehill, D.Hodges, J.Flacco, and J.Rosen. The Bolts went 2-3 SU (2-3 ATS) over those five games and allowed an average of 18.4 completions, 211 yards passing with one touchdown and one interception.

Rodgers and the offense hit a stride under new coach Matt LaFleur last week against Oakland, sure, but winning at Kansas City is never an easy task. With the Packers pegged fourth and the Chiefs slotted seventh in the latest AP Pro32 power poll, there's plenty of evidence that these are two of the top teams in the league. We'll see how it all goes,'' Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, ''but we have a lot of confidence in Matt.

Aaron Rodgers was off to a good but not especially amazing start to the season entering Week 7, which was disappointing with Mike McCarthy gone. Then he erupted Sunday, becoming just the third player in NFL history (and only the second in the Super Bowl era) to record 400+ passing yards with five TD passes and a rushing score in a single game, as Rodgers went off for nearly 50 fantasy points despite missing Davante Adams and with Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison both hobbled to the point of nearly not being able to play. The 35 year old signal caller got 13.8 YPA and finished with a perfect Passer Rating, and it almost seemed as if Matt LaFleur was going out of his way to pad Rodgers' stats with all of the pass plays he called around the goal line (he entered with the third-most pass attempts inside the 10-yard line this season).

Deebo Samuel is banged up and looks unlikely to play this week, so Pettis should see increased targets against a Washington secondary that's yielded the fifth-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Terry McLaurin is admittedly tough to sit at this point, but he's the only Washington player even worth considering using in fantasy lineups against a San Francisco defense that sports the league's highest 3&Out% and is on pace to allow the fewest passing yards since 1982. The 49ers have shut down some of the league's best wide receivers this season, thanks in no small part to Nick Bosa easily leading the NFL in pressure rate.

THE NO-DOUBTERS Chicago Bears (at Denver Broncos) The Bears came up short against the Green Bay Packers at home in the Thursday night season opener, but fault for the loss can hardly be laid at the feet of the Chicago defense. The Bears picked up right where they left off in 2018, putting the clamps on Aaron Rodgers and company. The Pack won the game, but Green Bay scored just 10 points and had a very un-Rodgers-like 213 yards of total offense in the contest.

The Green Bay Packers acquired fourth-year linebacker B.J. Goodson in a trade Tuesday with the New York Giants. The Packers, who kick off the season Thursday night at Chicago, were thin at inside linebacker with Oren Burks sidelined by a torn pectoral muscle. Goodson, a fourth-round pick by the Giants in 2016 out of Clemson, registered 116 tackles in 37 career games with New York.
