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.

Packers | Davante Adams healthy in 2016

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 20:58:19 -0800

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.

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 15:49:38 -0800

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.

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.

Cowboys | Dallas hoping to contain Aaron Rodgers

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 19:16:49 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' longest play against the Dallas Cowboys in the regular season was 25 yards, and DT Tyrone Crawford said keeping Rodgers in the pocket is the key to limiting his big plays.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers had a lackluster game against Dallas the first time around, but he is firing on all cylinders heading into Sunday's playoff matchup. He has 22 touchdowns and no interceptions over the last eight games and is a no-brainer QB1.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers' streak in jeopardy?

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 18:56:46 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers tossed two of his seven interceptions against the Giants back in Week 5, but he is playing on another level right now and remains a must-start fantasy quarterback.

With a division title on the line, he might end up being the highest-scoring quarterback for Week 17.

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 08:08:37 -0800

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (neck) said he suffered a neck stinger during Week 16's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

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. Considering he's generally still been playing at a very high level through his recent injury, Rodgers could end up churning out one of his higher-ceiling games in a crucial divisional matchup that will have playoff implications. 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: There are plenty of better matchups among quarterbacks this week than Aaron Rodgers has, but don't overlook him by any means.

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.
