Packers | Aaron Rodgers back with three TDs

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 15:24:37 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 26 of his 45 pass attempts for 290 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers. He also rushed six times for 43 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was back doing his usual thing, and he didn't seem shy about sacrificing his body or wasn't hesitant due to his collarbone injury. If you scooped him up or waited out his injury to use in the final couple of weeks of the fantasy season, congrats.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers activated

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 09:44:05 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 16, and is expected to play in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers will be listed as questionable on the injury report, but it is a formality for a player coming off the Reserve/Injured list. The Panthers have yielded at least two touchdown passes to four of the last five quarterbacks they have faced - the one exception being the run-heavy New Orleans Saints - and none of the four are on par with Rodgers. A strong case can be made for Rodgers being ranked as the top quarterback play in Week 15.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers expected to be activated Saturday

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 06:27:17 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is no longer listed on the team's injury report and is poised to start Week 15's game versus the Carolina Panthers, after receiving medical clearance to resume playing earlier this week. He should be considered a top-five fantasy quarterback in all formats.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers on track to play Week 15

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 10:50:00 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) is "preparing to play" in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was medically cleared late Tuesday night, so the coach is just confirming what most owners probably already knew. It's not going to be an easy three-game stretch for the six-time Pro Bowler - Carolina in Week 15, the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16 and the Detroit Lions in Week 17 - but owners waiting for a gift to fall in their laps during the fantasy playoffs may have gotten their wish. Rodgers will be a top-five fantasy quarterback play this week if he starts as expected.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers cleared

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 19:44:38 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) announced on his Instagram account Tuesday, Dec. 12, he has been medically cleared to resume playing football.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has been throwing on the side for a few weeks, but this confirms he should be back under center for the Packers in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers. While his return likely comes too late for most of his fantasy owners - and those who relied on Jordy Nelson - the many owners who were able to pick him up off waivers should be thrilled. Although his remaining fantasy schedule is far from a cakewalk, he should be reinserted into the majority of lineups this weekend.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers not fully healed yet

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 09:33:29 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) is pushing very hard to play in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers and the team - along with the medical staff - hopes to arrive at a decision regarding his status Wednesday, Dec. 13. However, there are "loud and protective voices" within the organization wondering if it is worth the risk of putting him on the field to potentially injure himself again for a "small chance at a great reward," according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers was not expected to be fully healed two months after suffering a broken collarbone and that appears to be the case here. Rapoport reports 80 percent healed with this injury is considered healthy enough to be on the field, so Rodgers' status for Week 15 remains very much up in the air. If he can play, he'll be a high-end, high-risk QB1 option for fantasy owners this week.

Packers | No decision on Aaron Rodgers yet

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 13:54:31 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) underwent tests and scans on his collarbone, but head coach Mike McCarthy said there is no clear decision on his status at this point. Rodgers is still being evaluated by team doctors.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Rodgers' practice participation during the week to have a better idea of his status for Week 15. He would be facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense if he plays but can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers to undergo CT scan

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 09:36:27 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) will undergo a CT scan this week to determine if he will be medically cleared to resume playing.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has reportedly looked sharp since returning to practice Dec. 2. If all goes well, he will be able to return to action for Week 15's game against the Carolina Panthers, so he should remain stashed in all seasonal leagues. QB Brett Hundley will remain under center for Week 14 versus the Cleveland Browns but should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in all fantasy formats.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers practices in pads

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 23:15:11 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) took part in practice while wearing shoulder pads Thursday, Dec. 7. It's another step forward for Rodgers, who is eligible to return for the team's Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: There are still two big hurdles for Rodgers: he needs to be medically cleared and the Packers need to beat the Browns this week. Neither of which are a lock. That being said, Rodgers is absolutely worth grabbing if he's on waivers in case those things do happen.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers to run scout team

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 07:20:34 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will work with the scout team in practice this week, according to a source. He would be eligible to play Dec. 17 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is worth stashing for a potential run in the fantasy playoffs, but he can't be fully counted on to return in a starting capacity.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers targeting Week 15 return

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 06:58:23 -0800

The Green Bay Packers are hoping that QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) can return for Week 15's game against the Carolina Panthers, provided that he receives medical clearance and the team is still in playoff contention, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers resumed practicing Saturday, Dec. 2, and will have two weeks to prepare for his potential return. He should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Brett Hundley will continue to start in Rodgers' absence and should be considered a low-end QB2 in most leagues.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers practices Saturday

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 10:56:08 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) took part in practice Saturday, Dec. 2, and has been officially designated as a player to return off the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: As NFL.com's Ian Rapoport says, there are still many hurdles to go. Rodgers hasn't been cleared for game action yet and won't undergo a scan of any kind until after the Packers play the Cleveland Browns in Week 14. In short, he's on track to return and little more at the moment. With that said, Rodgers needs to be stashed in all leagues.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers on track to practice Saturday

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 10:43:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) will begin practicing on a trial basis Saturday, Dec. 2. "He's got a workout (Friday) that we'll obviously evaluate. We're looking (Saturday) to potentially practice him in a trial return. That's the outlook," head coach Mike McCarthy said.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing is set in stone yet, but it's beginning to look like Rodgers is more likely than not to activate him from the Reserve/Injured list when he is first eligible and will return to action in Week 15 versus the Carolina Panthers. His return would obviously boost the stock of Jordy Nelson and give a huge boost to any owner savvy enough to pick him up off waivers - in the leagues in which he was dropped - in hopes that he could finish off a potential fantasy title run.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers can begin practicing

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 07:25:40 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) can begin practicing Friday, Dec. 1, but the Packers are off. He could dress for practice Saturday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: He still has two weeks and several hurdles to overcome before he could return in Week 15. With the progress he's making, though, he should probably be stashed for the fantasy playoffs.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers on the comeback trail?

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 11:10:01 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) was spotted throwing the football around during a workout about two hours before the start of his team's game in Week 12 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was reportedly "all smiles" after the short throwing session and threw at least one pass more than 50 yards in the air.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers cannot return from the Reserve/Injured list before Week 15 and there is absolutely no guarantee he will return again this season, but this news is positive for any owner who stashed him with an eye on the fantasy playoffs. Green Bay faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 15 and Minnesota Vikings in Week 16, so it's not as if he will have the easiest matchups either. With that said, Rodgers is arguably the best quarterback in the league and is worth starting anytime he can play.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers' recovery on track

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 20:25:28 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is making "really good progress" in his recovery, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers could be back in Week 15, but that's assuming his recovery remains on track and the Packers remain in playoff contention. If he does return, he'd be a risky but intriguing starting option in the fantasy playoffs.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers works on side

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:42:42 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) took some snaps on the sidelines during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15, but did not throw any passes. He also simulated a throwing motion by whipping a towel during the workout. Rodgers is not allowed to practice for at least two more weeks and is not eligible to play again until Week 15 since he is on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Rodgers could return to the lineup if the Packers have a chance to make the playoffs. Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL when he is heathy but would be a risky option in all leagues if he returns this season.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers had 13 screws inserted

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 09:23:26 -0700

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) disclosed on Conan with Conan O'Brien Wednesday, Oct. 25, that he had 13 screws inserted into his collarbone.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is likely done for the fantasy season, if not the entire season. His only roster viability is in multi-year leagues.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers may throw in six weeks

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 07:08:54 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) has been told by doctors that he will be able to start throwing in six weeks, according to sources. The team believes Rodgers could return this season if they are still in playoff contention but likely would keep him out if they miss the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers will miss at least the next eight weeks since he is on the Reserve/Injured list, but it looks like he may play again in 2017. Owners can consider stashing him on their bench if they have the roster space. Brett Hundley will be the starter while Rodgers is out but should only be a No. 2 quarterback.

Packers | Green Bay hoping for Aaron Rodgers return

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 17:35:35 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list, but the team hopes that he will be able to return in time for the team's Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers will miss at least eight weeks but has not been ruled out for the season at this point, so owners will need to keep an eye on his recovery. Owners that have roster space could consider stashing Rodgers on the bench, but he can be dropped if owners need the space.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers placed on IR

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 16:14:18 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers will have to miss at least eight weeks with this move and would not return until December if he has a chance to play again in 2017. Owners can drop Rodgers in standard leagues, but Brett Hundley is not a great fantasy option at this point.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers undergoes surgery

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 16:30:16 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) underwent surgery to repair his collarbone Thursday, Oct. 19, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers likely will miss most or all of the rest of the season, so owners can drop him if they need the roster space. Brett Hundley is taking over the starting quarterback job but probably should be avoided until he can produce on a consistent basis.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers' surgery date not set

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 22:38:47 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) has yet to be scheduled for surgery, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Rodgers remains on the active roster pending the surgery as the team is waiting for the results of the procedure to establish a timeline for his recovery.

Fantasy Tip: Thus far the only official announcement is that Rodgers "could potentially" miss the rest of the season, though it seems many are anticipating he won't return in 2017. It's going to be an extended absence no matter what, so if you need the roster space go ahead and cut him. If not, you might as well wait for a more definitive time frame.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers will need surgery

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 13:41:21 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will need surgery on his broken collarbone and could miss the rest of the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers likely will miss the rest of the regular season, so owners in standard leagues can drop him if they need to add another quarterback. Brett Hundley will be the starting quarterback moving forward but is no better than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback. The quarterback change will hurt the fantasy value of the Packers receivers and tight ends.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers to have tests

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 06:46:32 -0700

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will have tests performed Monday, Oct. 16, to determine the next course of action. There's a chance he returns later in the season.

Fantasy Tip: For all intents and purposes Rodgers is likely toast for the rest of the fantasy season. Brett Hundley figures to be a matchup play in the interim.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers officially breaks clavicle

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 12:12:30 -0700

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (clavicle) officially suffered a broken collarbone and may miss the rest of the year.

Fantasy Tip: He broke his left one in 2013 and missed seven games. This time it's the throwing shoulder side, so brace for the worst. The Packers turn to Brett Hundley, but given all of his weapons and learning opportunity behind Rodgers, all hope is not lost. Hundley is a fringe fantasy asset, and the receiving corps should be devalued across the board.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers may have broken collarbone

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 11:48:26 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo tests, but the Packers fear that Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers would miss a significant amount of time if he does have a broken collarbone, but owners should look for an update on his status in the near future. Brett Hundley would take over as the starting quarterback but is not a great fantasy option.

Packers | Shoulder injury for Aaron Rodgers

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 10:28:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (shoulder) suffered a right shoulder injury in Week 6 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Rodgers' injury is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to keep an eye on any update on his status. It would be a big loss for owners if Rodgers misses time.

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 09:47:36 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (undisclosed) left the team's Week 6 game early because of an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Rodgers will be able to return to the game. Rodgers is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, and it would hurt fantasy owners if he misses time.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers quick to pull the trigger

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 18:51:27 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers unloaded the ball in an average of 2.1 seconds on his 29 pass attempts in Week 5, the quickest of any quarterback in the league per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Fantasy Tip: With Green Bay battling injuries along the offensive line, Rodgers doesn't have the luxury of time in a lot of cases, although it has yet to show up in his weekly totals with seven touchdowns and no interceptions over his last two games. Rodgers has a difficult matchup in Week 6 versus the Minnesota Vikings, but he's a must-start pretty much anytime he takes field.

Packers | Three scores for Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 19 of his 29 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns and ran four times for 32 yards in a 35-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has now tossed at least three touchdowns in each of the last three games and seven touchdowns and no interceptions over his last two. The top fantasy quarterback in the game is firing on all cylinders right now.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers throws four TD passes

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 22:29:08 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was 18-for-26 for 179 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions against the Chicago Bears on Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first time this season Rodgers didn't pass for more than 300 yards, but those four touchdown passes and error-free football should silence any grumbling from fantasy owners. He'll travel to Dallas next week. The question is how many of his injury-ravaged teammates will join him?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
