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.

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.

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.
