It will be an interesting matchup on Sunday Night Football when the Green Bay Packers entertain the Tennessee Titans in a battle of legitimate contenders at Lambeau Field. That’s not to say this a potential preview of Super Bowl LV (Tennessee making it there would obviously be a huge surprise), but it should be a good one.

If Titans-Packers does not have implications in your fantasy football playoffs, there is always daily fantasy to try. Let’s take a look at our six-man lineup for this showdown, and be sure to check out our full game preview prediction on the side and total.

Captain: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers ($11,600, or $17,400 as captain)

I suppose Derrick Henry is an acceptable captain whenever he takes the field, but in this situation you just can’t not roll the dice with Rodgers—especially not when he costs less than Henry. The Titans rank 29th in the NFL against the pass and have surrendered 29 touchdowns through the air—fourth most in the league. Moreover, their pass rush was expected to be terrible heading into the 2020 campaign and it is. Tennessee is last in the entire league with 14 sacks. Rodgers should go wild on Sunday night.

Flex: Davante Adams, WR, Packers ($11,000)

A big game for Rodgers would probably mean a big day for Adams, too. Green Bay’s WR1 has been awesome in 2020, catching 98 passes for 1,186 yards and 14 touchdowns. He has gotten double-digit targets nine times, including in each of the past three contests. You can be darn sure Rodgers will target him all night long in this one against a porous Tennessee secondary. It should come as no surprise to see Adams as our No. 1 receiver in fantasy for Week 16.

Flex: Aaron Jones, RB, Packers ($9,400)

Jones is not necessarily the most consistent fantasy producer on the planet, but he always has home-run potential. He is capable of single-handedly winning you your matchup in any given week—as New Orleans running back Alvin Kamara has already done this week. Jones has rushed for at least 130 yards in two of the past three weeks and now he runs into a Tennessee rushing defense that is no better than mediocre.

Flex: Allen Lazard, WR, Packers ($5,600)

Rodgers is going to be throwing the ball all over the field on Sunday night—not just to Adams and Jones. Lazard was targeted six times during a Week 15 win over Carolina and caught five of them for 56 yards. He stands to be even better here given that the Titans are worse defensively than the Panthers. Lazard’s value is futher increased by the fact that WR3 Marques Valdes-Scantling has not been productive of late.

Flex: Jonnu Smith, TE, Titans ($4,600)

Although our four highest-paid players are Packers, a beatdown in Green Bay’s favor is not exactly a slam-dunk certainty. We simply feel good about Rodgers, Adams, and Jones shouldering the load. Aside from Henry, the Titans may spread the wealth a round to a little bit greater extent. A whole host of guys could get in on the fun, and Smith is one of those guys. He has scored seven touchdowns this season to go along with 410 receiving yards.

Flex: Darrynton Evans, RB, Titans ($2,000)

With chump change left over, Evans isn’t the worst pick in the world. Tennessee’s backup running back was active for the first time in more than two months last week and promptly got 10 touches (eight carries, two receptions), which he turned into 57 yards and one touchdown. Obviously Evans won’t go completely off playing behind Henry, but he has a chance to post some more decent statistics.
