Packers | Aaron Rodgers throws for 313 yards

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 19:24:24 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 28 of his 42 pass attempts for 313 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Week 3 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he ran four times for 23 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers and the Packers fell behind at home, and they needed a big comeback and overtime to finally put away the Bengals. Fantasy owners liked seeing the game go to OT, as Rodgers hooked up with Geronimo Allison on a 72-yard pass play to set up the game-winning field goal. More importantly, it pushed him over the 300-yard threshold for point bonuses. He and his teammates have just a few days to prepare for Week 4 against the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers throws for 343 yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:55:50 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33 of his 50 pass attempts for 343 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 2 at Atlanta.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was playing with a patchwork offensive line due to several injuries but he still had a decent overall stat line. He'll look to keep up the big fantasy production in Week 3 against Cincinnati.

Packers | Martellus Bennett fined

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 06:36:54 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett was fined $9,115 by the National Football League for his unnecessary roughness penalty in Week 1's game against the Seattle Seahawks. He gave LB K.J. Wright a two-handed shove after Wright tackled QB Aaron Rodgers on a fourth-quarter scramble for a first down.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett finished his first game in a Packer uniform with three receptions for 43 yards. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 in the majority of fantasy formats.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers rested arm

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 08:28:50 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he took the most time off of his career this offseason to rest his arm. "I worked hard in the offseason on my body and my core strength," Rodgers said. "I took a break from throwing for about a month. I kind of let my arm come all the way back. It's felt good this year, as usual. But my legs, I think, have felt better the last couple years than maybe the previous couple years, probably due to the training and maybe eating better. I think when your legs are underneath you and you're throwing from the ground up, you're probably going to be a little more accurate."

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is now 33, but his fantasy value lies in his sheer dominance through the air. He ran for a career-high 369 yards last season, which really doesn't add a whole lot to his fantasy prowess. Look for him as a top three or four option at the position.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers efficient Saturday

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 18:31:47 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed six of his eight pass attempts for 37 yards and a touchdown and ran twice for 15 yards against the Washington Redskins in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: You never want to reach for a quarterback in your fantasy drafts, but Rodgers should be the first one off the board, sometime in the first three rounds.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers excited for TE group

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 20:36:45 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the additions of TE Martellus Bennett and TE Lance Kendricks give the offense more flexibility to run two-tight end sets. "Both guys can put their hand on the ground and go and block guys really well but also add that dimension in the passing game," Rodgers said.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett should headline the tight end group, and he is probably the best tight end Rodgers will have worked with. He should be able to produce TE1 numbers in Green Bay's potent passing attack.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers not worried about contract

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 16:49:24 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said his impending contract will take care of itself, adding that he's not worried about not being the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL. Rodgers said he's going to continue to make himself an "indispensable" part of the Packers' roster. "When you do that, when your time comes up to get a contract, you usually get a contract extension.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is arguably the best quarterback in the NFL, and he plays like it year after year. While drafting quarterbacks early isn't always the most economical fantasy strategy, Rodgers can and should be taken in earlier rounds.

Packers | Jordy Nelson the most effective WR?

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 20:49:33 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a 117.7 passer rating when targeting WR Jordy Nelson last year, the highest mark for any receiver in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson also led the league in touchdowns last year, and he should be a dependable WR1 again this season as the go-to target for one of the NFL's best quarterbacks.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers expects big season

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 18:21:05 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he expects the offense to be "really tough to stop" in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start to last season, Rodgers caught fire and ended up leading the NFL in touchdown passes. He is should be one of the first quarterbacks off the board in drafts.

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.
