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.

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.

Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (shoulder) said he is dealing with a separated shoulder. He said his status for Week 13 will be determined by his pain tolerance and the future implications for his AC joint.

Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews' (shoulder) injury to his shoulder is a big concern, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "I can't say enough about him coming back out there and fighting through what he did," McCarthy said.

Green Bay Packers DT Mike Pennel is facing a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Pennel has filed a lawsuit against the NFL and NFL Players Association as a result of the suspension. He was already suspended for the first four games of the season.

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 RB James Starks will be up against a Houston Texans defense in Week 13 that has allowed only 58.8 rushing yards per game since Week 8. The Texans have not allowed a rushing touchdown since then.
Fantasy Tip: This matchup certainly doesn't bode well for Starks, who only managed 41 yards on 17 carries in Week 12. Don't view Starks as more than a flex option, if you can help it.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has a midrange matchup against the Houston Texans next week, and he remains an elite option at the position if healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers had 14 catches over the past three games, but he was blanked here. He also hasn't had any touchdowns in eight games dating back to Week 3. Avoid him in all fantasy leagues, as Jared Cook appears to have the eye of Aaron Rodgers more so than Richard Rodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Cook went over 100 yards last week in Washington, but he was obviously held in check in this one. Inconsistency has been a huge problem over his career. He remains more of a TE2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 13 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb appears to have fallen behind Davante Adams in the pecking order among wideouts. That's not good for his fantasy appeal going forward. Treat him more as a WR3 heading into Week 13 against the Houston Texans.
