Matt Flynn back with Packers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) The Packers have signed free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, reports ESPN.

Flynn started five games in 2013, including four for the Packers (the other start was in Oakland), and completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,392 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. He started in Green Bay when Aaron Rodgers was out with a collarbone injury.

He is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Rodgers again.


Packers striving for offensive balance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) The Packers finally have a running back in Eddie Lacy who can take pressure off Aaron Rodgers and the passing game, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Defenses won't be able to let their safeties sit back in coverage.

“You hope they play you two-shell defense all day when Eddie’s in the backfield,” coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. “But there’s more to it than that, too, because you don’t want to be one-dimensional one way or the other. We’ve lived that life where we were heavy one-dimensional throwing it, and you’d like to have balance. It makes it easier, puts a little less stress on your quarterback, your best player.”


Packers due to draft a quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Packers couldn't win without Aaron Rodgers last season, so now they're determined to find a promising quarterback in the draft, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Green Bay has drafted only one quarterback, 2012 seventh-rounder B.J. Coleman, in the past five years.

The paper noted Matt Flynn is an impending free agent and Scott Tolzien may or may not be the answer as Green Bay's backup quarterback.

"I think we definitely need four, so I'm hopeful that we can get a young guy in the draft," coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. "That's something we're looking at and maybe taking even a harder look this year — well, that's not true, we've always taken a hard look.

"That's something that we're focused on."


New QB coach wants to challenge Aaron Rodgers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) New Packers quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt said he will challenge Aaron Rodgers and try to keep him from getting complacent.

"You definitely have to find ways to stimulate him even on the basic principles of the offense," Van Pelt said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "You find ways to challenge and stimulate him. That goes for any great player that’s been in that position for a long time.

"How many times can you hear the coaching points for '200 Jet Dragon'? You’ve been hearing it from Day One of your football life," Van Pelt added. "Now, let’s try to find another way to challenge him, to stimulate your brain to play better."


Aaron Rodgers comfortable with new quarterbacks coach


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Aaron Rodgers expects a smooth transition with Alex Van Pelt replacing Ben McAdoo as Packers quarterbacks coach. Van Pelt, a former quarterback, coached Green Bay's running backs the past two seasons.

"As far as Alex is concerned, him and I have been good buddies from his first day here,” Rodgers said on ESPN 540 Milwaukee. 

Rodgers added he's heard good things about Van Pelt and that "Alex gets the game. He played the position and if he’s the guy, I know it’s going to be a really smooth transition, and we’d have a lot of fun together.”

McAdoo left to become the Giants' offensive coordinator.


Aaron Rodgers to account for 13.5 percent of Pack's salary cap


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who signed a five-year, $110 million contract last April, will account for 13.46 percent of the proposed 2014 salary cap, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. With so much money tied up in Rodgers, Green Bay cannot afford to be without him even for a handful of games.

The Packers went 2-5-1 in 2013 while Rodgers missed nearly eight full games with a broken collarbone.

"Well, I mean, Aaron Rodgers is the best player in the National Football League," coach Mike McCarthy said. "So to say you're too reliant on him, it depends on what side of the fence you want to look at. Does he make a difference on a football team? Absolutely."


Slow start plagues Aaron Rodgers in playoff loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took a while to get going in Sunday's playoff loss to the 49ers. He went 0-for-2 with two sacks in a first quarter that saw Green Bay generate 6 total yards.

Rodgers heated up and finished 17 of 26 for 177 yards and a touchdown, a 5-yard strike to Jordy Nelson in the second quarter. The 177 yards were Rodgers' fewest in a game he finished this season, and the 17 completions tied a season low.

Rodgers was under heavy pressure much of the night, but he had his moments. On 4th-and-2 in the fourth quarter, he escaped a sack and hit Randall Cobb for 26 yards. Overall, though, it was a quiet end to Rodgers' season.


Aaron Rodgers, Colin Kaepernick approaching weather differently


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) The temperature for Sunday's playoff game in Green Bay could plunge as low as 15 degrees below zero. While Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said his preparation would be to "eat a lot of chicken soup," 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sounded less enthusiastic, reports ProFootballTalk.com.

"I don't think my dream was to play in freezing weather," Kaepernick said.


Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb not on injury report


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Randall Cobb are not on this week's injury report. "They look great, feel great," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I have no worries about those two."

Rodgers returned from a broken collarbone and Cobb from a broken leg to play Week 17 at Chicago. They'll face the 49ers in a playoff game Sunday.


Aaron Rodgers emerges from game, slip-and-fall OK


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2013) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was confident his collarbone wouldn't be an issue Week 17, especially after he fell on his back shoveling snow in a recent storm, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"Ever since I tried to shovel my driveway and actually slipped on some ice, I had a pretty good feeling I was going to be able to fall - and not have some major issues," Rodgers said on his radio show Tuesday. "Thankfully nobody in the neighborhood was out there watching or videoing me, because that would have been great YouTube material there.

"I felt good about it, I wanted to take that first hit, that first hit was actually very painful, the late one, but not in my collarbone area."

Rodgers said his calves were still sore Tuesday after he cramped up during the win in Chicago. But his collarbone was not bothering him, the report said.


Aaron Rodgers overcomes early interceptions, throws game-winning TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers overcame a rusty start as he led his team on a come-from-behind win over the Bears in Week 17, his first game back from a broken collarbone in Week 17 against the Bears.

In his first game back since Week 9, Rodgers was intercepted in the end zone by Chris Conte. Tim Jennings picked off Rodgers on the second play of the second quarter. Rodgers bounced back in the second half with a 7-yard touchdown to Randall Cobb in the third quarter.

On a 4th-and-8 with 38 seconds remaining, Rodgers showed some late-game heroics as he found Cobb in the end zone for a 48-yard strike to take the lead and to win the game. He completed 25 of 39 passes for 318 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions in a 33-28 victory.

The Packers will host the 49ers in the opening round of the playoffs.

Aaron Rodgers officially active for Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was officially ruled active and back into the starting lineup for Sunday's must-win season finale at Chicago.

Rodgers was named the starter earlier in the week after missing seven games due to a broken collarbone. He was averaging 277.3 yards per game with a total of 15 touchdowns and four interceptions through eight games before the injury.

Aaron Rodgers probable Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is probable Week 17.

Rodgers has already been named the starter against Chicago, so his status shouldn't come as a surprise. He's returning after missing seven games due to a broken collarbone. 


Aaron Rodgers a must-start option for season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will make his long-anticipated return from a broken collarbone against the Bears in a win-or-go home Week 17 contest.

Rodgers suffered his injury during his first meeting against Chicago at Lambeau Field in Week 9. He hit 1 of 2 passes for 27 yards before he was slammed to the turf by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin on a 3rd-down sack in the opening quarter of that game. He had only missed one career game before suffering a broken collarbone.

Rodgers was averaging 277.3 yards per game with a total of 15 touchdowns and four interceptions through eight games. The Bears have allowed 227.8 passing yards per game this season, which should work out in favor of Rodgers. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 17.07 Fantasy points per game this season.

All of out Fantasy experts have Rodgers ranked in the Top 5 for the final week of the regular season. You didn't keep him on your bench this long not to start him in his first game back. Consider him a must-start Fantasy option for Week 17.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Decision on Aaron Rodgers coming Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"We had a scan and we're going through the process," he said. "Thursday there will be a conclusion this week to the unknown."

The Packers visit Chicago on Sunday with the NFC North at stake. Matt Flynn will start if Rodgers isn't cleared. Rodgers said he felt great at practice last week and wouldn't be hesitant at all if he got the nod.

"I'm not thinking about my injury," he said. "It comes down to, 'Is the bone healed or is there a risk too large in going out there?'"
