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.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers lights it up

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 15:28:06 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 28-of-38 for 347 yards and four touchdowns in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings. He added 16 yards and another score on the ground.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers accounted for four of his five touchdowns in the first half and sat for a good part of the fourth quarter, so the Vikings weren't exactly putting up a lot of resistance even as the Packers' offense slowed down after intermission. Rodgers should be expected to play his usual snaps in Week 17 and be an elite QB1 option as Green Bay faces the Detroit Lions in a game that will decide the NFC North.

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 15:35:22 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 22.

Fantasy Tip: This is a wonderful sign that Rodgers is finally getting back to 100 percent health.

Despite being pitted opposite a great Vikings defense, Rodgers is still a top QB1 option.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers avoids setback in Week 15

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 10:28:24 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf, hamstring) did not aggravate either one of his lower-body injuries in a Week 15 win over the Chicago Bears. "The early indication is he's better today than he was going into the game. So we feel good about that," head coach Mike McCarthy said.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers isnít close to 100 percent by any stretch, but owners will take him avoiding any further damage heading into fantasy championship week. He'll likely be a midrange QB1 in Week 16 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers to face Chicago

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 06:23:46 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) will start Week 15's game against the Chicago Bears. However, the team is expected to have three quarterbacks active in case he is unable to make it through the game.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers did not practice at all this week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Despite his limited mobility, he should still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all seasonal leagues due to the favorable matchup, although DFS players would be wise to look for safer options.

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 05:32:48 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf, hamstring) may have plays taken out of the game plan by head coach Mike McCarthy in order to protect him for aggravating his injuries.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers take on the Chicago Bears this week, and Rodgers may not be needed to do a whole lot. You play him if you have him, but he's probably not the best option in DFS.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers TE Aaron Rodgers (calf, hamstring) is dealing with a more minor calf injury than the one he suffered two years ago, according to a source.

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 16:15:08 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers does have a tough matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this week, but he's been pretty much matchup-proof the last several weeks with his full arsenal of weapons.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers limited in practice

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 18:56:36 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was hurt in the game two weeks ago in Philadelphia but played through the ice and snow at home last week against Houston, so you can expect him to be ready for Week 14. He faces a difficult matchup against a good Seattle Seahawks defense, but he remains a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers grinded it out through the hamstring injury he suffered last week in Philadelphia and made it through the game. He'll likely keep getting treatment for the injury, and it will be something to continue monitoring heading into Week 14 in a tough matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:19:55 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was a limited participant at practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is officially listed as questionable on the injury report, but it's pretty much a certainty he'll be out there Sunday opposite the Texans. And while he might be a bit limited physically, owners would be crazy to leave him on the bench. The former Super Bowl MVP has played like a desirable QB1 all season, and with Green Bay in 'must-win' mode, you can bet they'll continue to lean on him as much as possible. He should not be on any fantasy benches for Week 13.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers gets questionable tag

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 13:01:22 -0800

Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 13 versus the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was able to finish last week despite the injury and seems reasonably certain to play through it this week, although his mobility will likely be somewhat compromised. As a result of his injury and the matchup, he probably shouldn't be expected to be the elite QB1 he typically is, but there is no question he needs to be started in all leagues.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 15:01:24 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: There are plenty of better matchups among quarterbacks this week than Aaron Rodgers has, but don't overlook him by any means. He has been on a tear of late and is once again matchup-proof. The Houston Texans have defended the pass at an elite level this year, but Rodgers remains a top QB1 consideration.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30. The Packers did not practice; this status is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has looked like the Aaron Rodgers of old lately after a trying start to the season. He is averaging 345 yards and 2.3 touchdowns over his last three games. Rodgers will continue to be a QB1 as long as he is active.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers has impressive TDs streak

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 15:11:35 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has multiple passing touchdowns in six straight games, which is the second-longest active streak in the NFL, behind only Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota, who has his streak out to eight games.

Fantasy Tip: Four of those six games have seen the former Super Bowl MVP throw for three or more touchdowns, as despite his team's losing record for the year, Rodgers has still posted remarkable numbers across the board. When the 2016 season is all said and done, he could wind up leading all quarterbacks in fantasy scoring. In the meantime, he's capable of single-handedly leading fantasy teams through a deep postseason run in the weeks ahead.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) said Monday, Nov. 28, that he tweaked his hamstring in the Week 12 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I hurt my hamstring a little bit. Was trying to do too much. I'm going to play through it and I'll be good to go next week," Rodgers said.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers finished 30-for-39 with 313 yards and two touchdowns in the win, and he ran for 26 more yards. He is a risky fantasy play heading into Week 13 against the Houston Texans on a short week, as hamstring injuries can be tricky.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 31 of his 51 pass attempts for 371 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans. He also ran three times for 27 yards and a touchdown.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers could run more

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 19:49:34 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ran six times for 60 yards in Week 8, and head coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers could have more opportunities to run if defenses continue to play press coverage on the outside and drop the safeties deep.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is still going to do most of his damage with his arm, but a few well-timed scrambles each game will only help his value. He is a must-start QB1 in Week 9 against a beatable Indianapolis secondary.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers flashes vintage fantasy form

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 20:43:15 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 39-of-56 for 326 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 7 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers & Co. squandered multiple red-zone opportunities, settling for two field goals in the first half. After Rodgers committed a fumble that led to a Bears' defensive touchdown to open the second half, things started clicking. Rodgers connected with Davante Adams for touchdowns on each of the next two drives and found Randall Cobb for a score on the following possession. With Ty Montgomery and Cobb serving as the primary rushing threats at the moment, Rodgers may be forced to attempt 50-plus passes more often. He is still a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers has owned the Bears

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 17:58:53 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 12-4 against the Chicago Bears in his career. In those 16 games he has thrown 35 touchdowns and just nine interceptions. Those 35 touchdowns are tied for the most against any team Rodgers has played, the Minnesota Vikings being the other team.

Fantasy Tip: It's been an off year for Rodgers and the Green Bay offense, but he just plain plays better against the Bears, and Thursday's game is at Lambeau Field. Fantasy owners may be sick of Rodgers underperforming, but this week isn't the week to finally decide to bench him. He deserves at least one more week, especially since both Eddie Lacy and James Starks are likely out.

Packers | Aaron Rogers remains confident

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 15:33:28 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers admitted that he and the offense have been "a little bit off", but he's confident that they'll get back on track soon.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is right. He just hasn't looked like himself for the most part this season. A lack of a running game hurts, but Rodgers is usually one of the more consistent passers in the league. Don't place him outside of QB1 territory just yet, though. Someone like Rodgers can only be in a slump for so long.
