Brett Hundley's table is ready, and Sunday against a vastly improved Saints secondary we'll begin to find out (A) whether he's being seated at a fantasy fast food or fantasy fine dining establishment; and (B) how big a reservation he can host.
Obviously (is it though?) we're talking about Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. Who's gonna eat with Hundley? It was Adams catching Hundley's first-ever touchdown and the eye of the Packers' new QB1 slightly more often than Nelson after Aaron Rodgers went down Sunday despite drawing the star treatment from Xavier Rhodes.
Meantime, Cobb attracted one-third of Hundley's looks compared to the big two but may be more assertively worked into future game plans if the mission is to get the ball out of Hundley's hands fast.
It's just too early to tell, unfortunately, what will become of the Packers' WR corps with Hundley at the helm, though we remain cautiously optimistic about the offense staying potent. But Since Rodgers really can't be replaced, it's logical all three take a fantasy hit. And with Nelson having the supernatural rapport with Rodgers, particularly in the red zone, his fantasy outlook may be most jeopardized. (Full disclosure: we thought before the season Nelson may be trending downward, which turned out to be patently false. Sorry!)
