Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (leg) had to be helped off the field in the second quarter after throwing a touchdown pass to WR Randall Cobb against the Detroit Lions. Rodgers was listed as probable for the game with a calf injury and had previously dealt with a hamstring strain in recent weeks. He was taken back to the locker room on a cart.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers' injury didn't look pretty, and he relies so much on his mobility to make plays. Stay tuned for his prognosis before making any judgments heading into next weekend's FantasyScore action.

Green Bay Packers LB Julius Peppers' ability to defend both the run and the pass as a defensive end in nickel packages has contributed to the defense's success against the pass this year, according to defensive coordinator Dom Capers.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers does have a rough matchup, but he could still be worth a start on FantasyScore with the usual high-octane offense and an NFC North division title on the line.

Green Bay Packers CB Davon House (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 25. OG T.J. Lang (ankle), LB Clay Matthews (biceps), LB Mike Neal (abdomen) and OG Josh Sitton (toe) were limited. The Packers did not practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: It is highly unlikely Rodgers doesn't suit up for Week 17. While the game should be high scoring, the Lions have limited opponents. Detroit is allowing just 16.8 points against per game and 295.9 yards per game this season, which both rank as the second best marks in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers may be limited the rest of the week to allow his injuries to heal but should be ready to play in Week 17. Rodgers ($5,555) should be considered a risky option this week on FantasyScore because he will be facing a Detroit Lions defense that has allowed the third fewest points to quarterback this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers likely will try everything he can be play in Week 17 since it affects the team's playoff position. Rodgers will be facing a tough Detroit Lions pass defense this week if he plays and could be a risky option to use on FantasyScore because of the injury and matchup.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf, flu) continues to think he'll be ready for Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, and he said he'll be ready if the team changes the game plan because of his calf injury. Rodgers took part in practice Tuesday, Dec. 23, with the session consisting of mostly individual drills at half-speed. Rodgers looked good, but he wasn't required to run at all. "I'm feeling good, except for the sickness and the calf thing," Rodgers joked. "Other than that, I'm great."
Fantasy Tip: In what could be a very tough divisional battle against the Lions in Week 17, Rodgers may not be the best quarterback option at FantasyScore for $5,555. If he's limited from scrambling and picking up yards with his legs, that's just another reason to be skeptical of his value for this weekend.
