- Scott Engel, ESPN Fantasy Games
Each Monday afternoon, the Fantasy Scout takes an early look ahead to the coming week and beyond. We give you the early lowdown on players to watch and consider emerging trends that will affect your fantasy strategy, even before the "Monday Night Football" game!
The Green Bay passing game rose from the dead on Sunday, and rookie Greg Jennings was an integral part of the equation. With an unreliable running game and a defense that will force him to match opponents or catch up to them often, Brett Favre is going to have to throw a lot all season long. The results usually will be mixed for Favre, but that also means a lot of reception opportunities for his starting receivers, Donald Driver and Jennings. After a fine preseason that earned him the No. 2 receiver job over Robert Ferguson, Jennings has earned the confidence of Favre and should be targeted in many key situations all year long.
Scott Engel examines the story lines from Sunday that will impact the following week.
