Fantasy Matchup - Thursday Night Edition

Could this be Brett Favre's last home game?

Welcome to the Fantasy Matchup - Thursday Night Edition. Week 16 kicks off with two NFC North teams squaring off in Green Bay in the rain. Ironman QB Brett Favre may be playing his last NFL game on his home field.

Minnesota Vikings (6-8) @ Green Bay Packers (6-8) 8:00 NFL

Neither of these two teams are mathematically out of the playoffs...and the winner will still need a miracle. The weather forcast in Green Bay tonight is rain and QB Tarvaris Jackson will be getting his first NFL start for the Vikes. Although Jackson looked okay last week against the Jets and Green Bay's defense is porous, he's not on any fantasy radars (nor should he be). RB Chester Taylor is the only fantasy play for Minnesota - and his versatility may be worth considering against Green Bay's D. For the Pack, I like QB Brett Favre with WRs Donald Driver and Greg Jennings...even in the rain. Favre isn't showing his hand, but tonight could very well be his last game in Green Bay - and he'll want to go out throwing and on a positive note. The Vikings are very solid against the run, which doesn't bode well for RB Ahman Green.
