The Green Bay Packers lost a game in which they were favored last week in Washington Womens Geronimo Allison Jersey , while the Buffalo Bills beat the Minnesota Vikings on the road despite being a 17-point underdog. With those results in mind, one might expect that a decent number of fans and writers for both teams would expect a Bills victory, right?This week, that’s not what we’re seeing. Although APC and Buffalo Rumblings readers’ picks are closer than the Las Vegas point spread — a ten-point edge in favor of Green Bay — they’re still in favor of the Packers. Furthermore, we have another unanimous pick for the Packers to win this Sunday from the APC staff, with all 13 writers choosing Green Bay as the straight-up winner.Here’s a look at our picks for this week’s games, which also feature unanimous selections of the Jaguars over the Jets, Eagles over Titans, Chargers over 49ers, and Chiefs over Broncos.Week 4 NFL PicksGameTexJasonPeterKrisBobJon MJordanMatubMikePaulShawnWendiZachAPC PickGameTexJasonPeterKrisBobJon MJordanMatubMikePaulShawnWendiZachAPC PickIn week three, Tex and Jason led the way among APC’s writers, tying with a record of 10-6. That brings Jason into a tie with Jon Meerdink with a record of 30-16-2. Bob Fitch sits a game back at 29-17-2, with three others another game behind at 28-18-2.FanPulse Survey ResultsAs mentioned earlier, APC’s Fanpulse group feels good about a Packers win, but they’re not as confident as bettors in Vegas with an average margin of victory being just half the point spread. Bills fans are also predicting a Packers win Womens Lane Taylor Jersey , by an average of a field goal.APC picks: Packers win by 5 pointsBuffalo Rumblings picks: Packers win by 3 points The Green Bay Packers are back in action after their bye, so we have some great fantasy options coming back to the game this week. Around the NFC North, we have four different games to choose from. Two of them could very well be shoot outs and are must-watch games this weekend. We’re taking a heavy look at some defenses this week because there are some solid ones in these matchups. In another heavy bye week, let’s take a look at who to sit and start in Week 8:Seahawks @ LionsStart: Seattle Defense; Kerryon Johnson, RBI hate to sound like a hater because this is a Packers blog, it’s just that the Seahawks have been sneaky good on defense recently! They’re the fourth overall DVOA on defense while being 3rd against the pass. Be comfortable starting Kerryon Johnson because that might be the best way the Lions move the ball on the day. Johnson had an explosive game against the Dolphins in Week 7, running the ball 19 times for 158 yards. He’ll need to find the end zone from more than 10 yards out, though, because LeGarrette Blount continually vultures those goal line touchdowns. Sit: Matthew Stafford, QBNot much of a streaming option here. Per ESPN, he’s the 18th ranked fantasy quarterback, but the Seattle secondary has some playmakers that might make Stafford struggle. Seattle is middle-of-the-pack in terms of sacks (16), but they have nine picks and six forced fumbles. I’d hit the waiver wire.Jets @ BearsStart: Taylor Gabriel, WRWith Allen Robinson II currently listed as doubtful, this is a good start even if Robinson manages to get on the field. Being neutralized by New England shouldn’t scare you and I think Gabriel bounces back against the Jets. With an impressive 79 percent catch rate Authentic Mike Daniels Jersey , Gabriel should get back to snagging some underneath routes. Trubisky really struggled to get things going down the field last week, but hopefully that connection comes back. During Gabriel’s best game in Week 4, he was used as a red zone option, which I’d like to see the Bears go to again.Sit: Jordan Howard, RBI’m not sure what the Bears are doing with Howard here. Tarik Cohen is great. He’s fast, he’s a weapon and you have to get him the ball. But Howard is a good running back, too! They haven’t been able to spring him open and continually run him into the back of the offensive line for short gains. At this point, he’s extremely dependent on scoring touchdowns so use caution with him this week. Saints @ VikingsStart: Latavius Murray, RBMurray has enjoyed a nice couple of weeks with the absence of Dalvin Cook. However, his ceiling is limited to whether or not Cook can go. If Cook sits, Murray is a great option. Murray has enjoyed some pretty enticing matchups against the Cardinals and Jets. Now, the 6’3” back gets a tasty matchup against the Saints, who are ranked 29th in receiving DVOA against running backs. The Saints have been stout against the ground game, but they’re allowing 43.6 yards per game through the air to running backs.Sit: Vikings DefenseThe Vikings have been excellent as a fantasy defense over the past three weeks. They’ve scored 13, 17 and 16 points against the Eagles Authentic Jaire Alexander Jersey , Cardinals and Jets, respectively. But the Saints offense isn’t going to be as terrible as those offenses have looked. The last time the Vikings faced a high-powered offense (the Rams) the Vikings went negative in fantasy points. The Rams rank third in points per game; the Saints rank 2nd. Packers @ RamsStart: Geronimo AllisonSimilar to the Vikings, you pretty much start all the regular stalwarts (Rodgers, Adams, Graham), but keep your eyes peeled for injury reports on Sunday morning for this one. Allison is reportedly on pace to play, but as we saw with Melvin Gordon last week, travel can have an effect on status. Before Allison got injured, three out of his four games played were double-digit performances. He’s likely a streaming option for a low-end flex coming off an injury, but I think Aaron Rodgers will be happy to get him back. Since the Rams are without Aqib Talib, Allison could see some opportunities.
