Packers | Richard Rodgers trimmed down

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 21:16:05 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers weighed in at 258 pounds for the start of training camp after playing at 275 pounds last year, and he said his lighter frame makes it easier for him to come in and out of his breaks at the same speed.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Jordy Nelson and the addition of Jared Cook will make it tough for Rodgers to duplicate his 58-catch performance from last year. Don't expect him to be a starting-caliber fantasy tight end.

Packers | Richard Rodgers starter over Jared Cook?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 16:44:40 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers is expected to start over TE Jared Cook, not just in 2016, but for the next few seasons, according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. An advantage Rodgers has this season is that he is in better shape after weighing up to 272 pounds last year.

Fantasy Tip: The tight end position has been fairly underwhelming in Green Bay for a few years now. Rodgers and Cook could very well play as a committee together when all is said and done. Neither should be drafted as a starting fantasy tight end.

Packers | Richard Rodgers embracing Jared Cook

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 18:05:58 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers said he is working to improve as an all-around player, and he views the addition of TE Jared Cook as an opportunity to learn from a veteran.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers caught eight touchdowns last year, but a healthy Jordy Nelson will push him down the pecking order in the passing game. At best, he is a backup fantasy tight end.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, Richard Rodgers probable

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 11:16:38 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) and TE Richard Rodgers (hip) are both probable to face the Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 16. Lacy practiced in full Friday, Jan. 15, while Rodgers was a limited participant.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals present a tough matchup for Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), but the Packers will likely lean on him often if they don't fall behind early. You could do much worse than him on FantasyScore. Rodgers ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could be relied on more as a safety blanket with Davante Adams out.

Packers | Richard Rodgers still limited

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 15:11:44 -0800

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is coming off a stellar outing in the wild-card round of the playoffs last week. He could have another solid outing this weekend, especially with more targets possibly coming his way with Davante Adams expected to sit. Plus, the Arizona Cardinals were mediocre at best against the tight end position this season.

Packers | Eddie Lacy, Richard Rodgers limited

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 14:19:37 -0800

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ribs) and TE Richard Rodgers (hip) were limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) did very little with his 13 carries versus the Washington Redskins last week, gaining just 34 yards on the ground. He added two catches for seven yards, but he's just too risky be seriously consider starting this week against the Arizona Cardinals, who were not accommodating at all to running backs this season. As for Rodgers ($6,000, 12.0%), he had a great game last week, tallying seven catches for 59 yards and a score. That line broke him out of a three-game slump, and he's not a bad play this week either.

Packers | Richard Rodgers disappears

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:36:59 -0800

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers posted two catches for just 11 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game Sunday, Jan. 10, against the Washington Redskins. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers posted underwhelming numbers in the final quarter of the regular season, and it carried over into the postseason. He was limited to one grab for two yards on three targets in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals, next week's opponent.

Packers | Richard Rodgers post 59 yards, TD

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:55:16 -0800

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers posted a game-high seven receptions with 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has scored three touchdowns over the past five games, but he had just three receptions for 12 yards and a score in his past three games entering play. Still, now that the playoffs start next week Rodgers will be a solid mid-tier FantasyScore option.

Packers | Richard Rodgers disappears

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 20:43:05 -0800

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers had just one reception for two yards in the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He was targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers posted 146 yards with that Hail Mary touchdown miracle Dec. 3 against the Detroit Lions. In the next three games he has just one reception in each game, totaling three catches for 12 yards and a touchdown. Ouch.

Packers | Richard Rodgers posts 146 yards

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 22:39:10 -0800

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers caught eight passes for 146 yards and one touchdown against the Detroit Lions in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Rodgers has not done much this season but had a breakout game in Week 13. He has caught at least four receptions in four of his last five games but probably is not a great fantasy option moving forward.
