Ranks reax: Don't overlook the matchups
Updated: September 12, 2012, 5:58 PM ETBy Eric Karabell
I don't want to overrate one week, but I feel pretty comfortable in being skeptical about the Green Bay Packers defense, not only for purposes of owning it in fantasy, but for enjoying individual players against it that others might not feel comfortable in exalting. It's not that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith shredded the Packers to the level of what some others did in Week 1, but matchups are an important part of creating rankings.
For Eric's rankings explanations of Matthew Stafford, Jamaal Charles, Wes Welker and others, you must be an ESPN Insider.
