Packers | Aaron Rodgers in rare company

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 14:14:47 -0800

In 2016, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to have multiple seasons of 40 or more touchdown passes.

Fantasy Tip: Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Drew Brees are the other quarterbacks to accomplish the feat. Rodgers has been one of the most consistent and successful quarterbacks in NFL history, and he has shown no signs of slowing down either. There was more pressure on Rodgers with Eddie Lacy and James Starks sidelined for the better part of last season, but he was up to the task, as usual. As is the case every offseason, Rodgers should be one of the first quarterbacks taken in fantasy drafts.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson made history

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 14:08:13 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson became the first quarterback-receiver duo since 1956 to lead the NFL in passing touchdowns (40) and receiving touchdowns (14) in the same season.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers had to rely on Rodgers and the passing game early and often without Eddie Lacy and James Starks for much of the season. Nelson is a touchdown machine when healthy and should be viewed as a low-end WR1 as a better fit in standard leagues. Rodgers is a perennial candidate for the No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Packers | Davante Adams healthy in 2016

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 20:58:19 -0800

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams tied for second in the NFL with 12 touchdown receptions in 2016, and QB Aaron Rodgers said Adams was able to produce because he was finally healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Adams still has the occasional drop, but he proved to be a valuable weapon for the passing attack, especially in the red zone. At worst, he should be a high-end WR3 in 2017.

Sat, 28 Jan 2017 08:00:25 -0800

Packers | Aaron Rodgers uneven in loss

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 15:43:43 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers connected on 27 of 45 passes for 287 yards and three touchdown passes. He was sacked twice and intercepted once.

Fantasy Tip: Judging by his standards, this was a poor effort. Fantasy gamers were rewarded with a sound statistical performance, but it paled in comparison to Matt Ryan's monstrous showing. Rodgers will be among the top two or three quarterbacks drafted in most leagues next summer.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers thriving when pressured

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 17:40:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been under duress on 28.8 percent of his drop-backs this season but has posted a 71.8 QBR when getting pressured, the second-best mark this season and fourth-best since 2009.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has been brilliant for most of the second half of the season and is playing at a level few, if any, have approached at the moment. He has done a wonderful job recently of combining excellent pocket presence with sound decision-making outside the pocket, posting a 24:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio over his last nine outings. He'll need to continue playing at a high level Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, as most of his usual supporting cast is hurting.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers dealing with illness

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 15:49:38 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (illness) said he has been dealing with an illness but will be ready to play in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers will be ready to play against the Atlanta Falcons and will be a big factor in the game. He has played very well during the team's winning streak and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Packers | Green Bay relying heavily on Aaron Rodgers

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 09:32:36 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has dropped back to pass 70 percent of the time during the playoffs this month - the highest rate of any team to win multiple games over the last 10 postseasons.

Fantasy Tip: With Rodgers playing as well as he ever has and Green Bay relying on receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery to carry the rushing attack, this isn't overly surprising. The Packers may not have much choice but to continue relying on the passing game despite a ton of injuries at receiver this weekend, as the Atlanta Falcons boast the league's highest-scoring offense and the Packers are decimated in the secondary.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers throws for 356

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 17:24:18 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of his 43 pass attempts for 356 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and had two carries for 16 yards in a 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers finally threw an interception, but it was another strong performance from one of the best to ever play the position. With a shootout likely on tap against Atlanta in the conference title game, Rodgers should be a popular building block in DFS formats next weekend.

Cowboys | Dallas hoping to contain Aaron Rodgers

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 19:16:49 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' longest play against the Dallas Cowboys in the regular season was 25 yards, and DT Tyrone Crawford said keeping Rodgers in the pocket is the key to limiting his big plays.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers had a lackluster game against Dallas the first time around, but he is firing on all cylinders heading into Sunday's playoff matchup. He has 22 touchdowns and no interceptions over the last eight games and is a no-brainer QB1.
