Packers | Aaron Rodgers feeling great

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 10:53:05 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) said his knee feels great less than a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. Rodgers added that the surgery was for a clean-up of an old injury.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Rodgers is playing golf this weekend indicates that he's recovering well from the injury and surgery. He should be good to go for offseason activities if he doesn't suffer any setbacks. As is the case every year when he's healthy, he's a top-tier QB1 for fantasy drafts.

Packers | Scott Tolzien looking for chance to start

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:53:32 -0800

Green Bay Packers backup QB Scott Tolzien, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March of 2016, has expressed his desire to become a starter in 2016. The Packers drafted QB Brett Hundley in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft to be QB Aaron Rodgers' long-term backup.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers had knee surgery

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 21:09:31 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) had knee surgery following the loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round of the playoffs, but he said he is "doing well" and "recovering on schedule."

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like Rodgers is in jeopardy of missing the start of next season, and with Jordy Nelson back in the fold, Rodgers should once again be among the top fantasy options at the quarterback spot.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers injured

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 14:37:57 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (undisclosed) will not participate in the Pro Bowl due to an undisclosed injury. Rodgers is being replaced by Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr.

Fantasy Tip: Not much can be hurting more than Rodgers' pride, especially after a Hail Mary touchdown to tie the game, only to be thwarted by a controversial coin toss and game-sealing touchdown by the Cardinals last weekend. Rodgers will have Jordy Nelson back next season, which will greatly help the offense as a whole. He's still a top-tier fantasy quarterback heading into 2016.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers not good against blitz

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 10:39:08 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ranked just 24th in the league against blitzes this year, with a passer rating of 82.4, which was his worst mark against the blitz in his career. The Arizona Cardinals blitz on 44.5% of all opponents' passing plays.

Fantasy Tip: No matter how you slice it, this matchup will be a tough one for Rodgers ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) and the Green Bay offense, especially with Davante Adams likely out. Green Bay's offense has been disappointing for much of the year, and they probably won't look as good as they did in the wild-card round. Rodgers is a big risk on FantasyScore.

Packers | Sacks an issue for Green Bay

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 15:44:57 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was sacked eight times in the last matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, and QB Scott Tolzien was also sacked once. The Cardinals had 26% of their sacks on the year in the game against Green Bay. No team allowed more sacks than the Packers this year (33) from Week 9 through the end of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals love to blitz, and with a shaky offensive line, Rodgers ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) could be under pressure all day. It's hard to justify paying up for him during this disappointing season against one of the all-around strongest defenses in the NFL.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers looks good in win

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:31:59 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 21 of his 36 pass attempts for 210 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card Game win against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Jan. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers had more time, as he was sacked just once. Next week the Packers move on to face the Arizona Cardinals. Rodgers and the Packers will look for revenge after getting embarrassed 38-8 in Arizona in Week 16.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers to take more risks?

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 09:43:02 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy have noticeably not been on the same page a lot during the 2015 season, but Rodgers said any differences he's had with McCarthy were healthy and didn't factor into the offense's disappointment this year. "This is the most frustrated I've ever seen him," McCarthy said.

Rodgers feels that he may need to take more risks to ignite the offense heading into the playoffs after their offense finished the year 23rd in yards and 15th in points after never finishing outside the top 10 in scoring and only once in yards in Rodgers' previous seven seasons. "Whatever it takes to win," Rodgers said. "At this point we haven't been very consistent in any capacity on offense, so if it means being a little riskier with the ball with a bigger reward on the back end, that's something you've got to think about."

Fantasy Tip: Taking a chance on Rodgers ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) on wild-card weekend could be a winning strategy. Because of the ineffectiveness of Green Bay's offense this year, many will stray from him. However, the Washington Redskins secondary can be exploited by Rodgers and Co., so choosing him on FantasyScore could set you apart.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers' disappointing season

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 15:09:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers didn't have a quarterback rating over 100 for the final 10 games of the season, and he completed just 57.2% of his passes, averaged just 5.97 yards per attempt, was sacked 35 times and had a passer rating of 81.9 in the final 10 games. He finished the year with the lowest passer rating (92.7), completion percentage (60.7%) and yards per attempt (6.68) in his eight years. Rodgers was also sacked 46 times, the second most in his career and second most this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) didn't perform up to his draft placement this year as an elite QB1. However, he could be useful as a contrarian play on wild-card weekend at FantasyScore, as the Washington Redskins were a top-10 fantasy matchup for QBs in 2015.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers pressured in loss

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:19:51 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of his 44 pass attempts for 291 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He ran three times for 12 yards and was sacked five times.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has been pressured over the past couple of games with the offensive line dinged up. He'll face a solid Washington Redskins pass defense on the road next Sunday, but he is still a good FantasyScore option due to his ability to escape and make things happen.
