Aaron Rodgers not first to struggle vs. Bills


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) If you were fortunate enough to survive quarterback Aaron Rodgers' uncharacteristically poor performance Week 15 at Buffalo, know this: It was a one-time thing.

This wasn't a case of the Packers deciding they're better off running the ball more, as the Broncos have done. They lost 21-13 to the Bills, OK? Things clearly didn't go according to plan.

Of course, the Bills had something to do with that. Believe it or not, they've been one of the toughest matchups for quarterbacks this season. They've allowed only 14 touchdown passes while recording 19 interceptions, making them one of just two teams with more of the latter than the former.

Rodgers also didn't get as much help from his teammates as usual. Most notably, wide receiver Jordy Nelson had a couple drops, including what would have almost certainly been a 94-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. If the two connect on that one, we're not even having this conversation.

And then you just have the anomalous aspect of it. This was the first game over his entire career in which Rodgers had zero touchdown passes and two interceptions. He entered with only three interceptions all season.

Naturally, you'll want to keep him active for Week 16 at Tampa Bay.


Packers' Aaron Rodgers picked off twice, held under 200 yards vs. Bills


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers endured an abysmal performance as he was picked off twice and held out of the end zone in his team's 21-13 defeat to Buffalo in Week 15. He was held without a touchdown for the first time since Nov. 4, 2013 -- the game he broke his collarbone last season. His streak of five games without an interception also came to an end.

Rodgers was picked off twice by Bacarri Rambo -- once in each quarter of the second half. Rodgers compiled 185 yards through the air while completing 17 of 42 passes. He was held under 200 passing yards for the fourth time this season and finished with a season-low 34.3 passer rating.

Rodgers has 3,837 passing yards with 35 touchdowns and five interceptions. He'll look to get back on track come Week 16 at Tampa Bay.


The beat goes on for Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau Field


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has thrown 23 touchdowns and no interceptions in seven home games after shredding the Falcons on Monday Night Football. Rodgers completed 24 of 36 passes for 327 yards and three scores, going over 300 yards for the fifth time in the last six games, and added 28 yards on five rushes.

This was Rodgers' 100th career start, and he's thrown for 27,520 yards. That's the most in NFL history through 100 starts, just above Tony Romo's 27,485.

Rodgers opened 10 for 10 for 110 yards. He threw two touchdowns late in the second quarter, hitting running back Eddie Lacy with a 1-yard flip and finding wideout Jordy Nelson from 10 yards out. In the fourth quarter, Rodgers uncorked a perfect 60-yard scoring strike to Nelson off play action.

Up to 36 total touchdowns this year, Rodgers visits Buffalo in Week 15.


Packers' Aaron Rodgers turns in strong performance Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers turned in a strong performance Week 13 against the Patriots. 

Rodgers completed 24 of 38 passes for 368 and two scores. Rodgers did not turn the ball over during the contest. Rodgers did find himself under duress a couple times, but was usually able to use his legs to buy himself some time. Rodgers was sacked three times, though, so he couldn't evade the Patriots all game. Still, it was tough to stop Rodgers. Two of his biggest plays wound up going for scores. In the first quarter, he found Richard Rodgers for a 32 yard strike. In the second quarter, he managed to connect with Jordy Nelson on a 45 yard touchdown. Rodgers also had 22 rushing yards. 

Rodgers will look for more Week 14 against the Falcons.


Packers QB Aaron Rodgers tosses two touchdowns


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tossed two touchdowns Week 12 against the Vikings.

It was just an average game for the superstar quarterback. Rodgers completed 19 of 29 passes for 209 yards and two scores. He was effecient when throwing, averaging a strong 7.2 yards per completion. Rodgers did not turn the ball over during the contest. Both of Rodgers touchdowns came from within the 10 yard line. The first was actually from a yard out. Rodgers faked a handoff, and found tight end Richard Rodgers wide open in the corner of the end zone. On his second touchdown, Rodgers found Eddie Lacy from 10 yards out. Rodgers also had 34 rushing yards.

Rodgers will look for more Week 13 against the Patriots.


Aaron Rodgers keeps rolling in Week 11 blowout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers posted his third consecutive 300-yard game in the Week 11 blowout of the Eagles. He completed 22 of 36 throws for 341 yards and three touchdowns, giving him 18 touchdown passes and no interceptions through five home games.

Rodgers came out on fire just like he did in the Week 10 annihilation of the Bears. He threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.

Rodgers hit rookie Davante Adams on a 6-yard slant for a first-quarter score, then threaded a 27-yard touchdown to Jordy Nelson in the second quarter. In the fourth, Rodgers flipped one to running back Eddie Lacy, who bounced off several tacklers for a 32-yard touchdown.

Rodgers also broke Tom Brady's NFL record of 288 straight passes at home without an interception. He's thrown 322 consecutive passes at Lambeau Field without getting picked.

Rodgers, who has five 300-yard games this season, rushed three times for 32 yards on Sunday. He visits the Vikings in Week 12.


Aaron Rodgers matches records in Week 10 thrashing of Bears


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 18 of his 27 pass attempts for 315 yards with six touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 55-14 blowout win over the Bears in Week 10.

Rodgers threw just three passes after halftime, and all fell incomplete, before being pulled with the Packers owning a comfortable lead. His six first-half touchdowns tied the NFL record for one half, set by Oakland's Daryle Lamonica in 1969. He also tied the franchise record for touchdowns in a single game.

Rodgers finishes this season's two-game set against the Bears with 617 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and no interceptions. He's up to 2,407 yards and 25 touchdowns on the season while throwing just three interceptions. The Eagles will get the next assignment of trying to slow Rodgers down in Week 11.


Packers have all questionables, probables active vs. Bears


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) All six players who appeared on the Packers' final injury report for Week 10 are active for Sunday night's game against the Bears.

Safety Morgan Burnett (calf) and guards T.J. Lang (ankle) and Josh Sitton (toe) were listed as questionable to play, but all three will be available for the important NFC North batte. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (hamstring), defensive end Datone Jones (ankle) and cornerback Sam Shields (knee) are active after being listed as probable.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Friday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers "feels good" and is "ready to go" for Sunday's game against the Bears. Rodgers suffered a hamstring injury Week 8 at New Orleans, but after resting during a bye week, he doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing game action.

Rodgers has 2,092 passing yards with 19 touchdowns and three interceptions through eight games.


Aaron Rodgers practicing Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) As expected, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is practicing Wednesday, reports ESPN.com. Rodgers said Monday that his hamstring is fine after he tweaked it Week 8 against the Saints, per NFL.com. Rodgers rehabbed the injury during the team's bye week.

Green Bay hosts the Bears on Sunday night.


Aaron Rodgers not limited Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who strained his hamstring Week 8 at New Orleans, "did everything" in Monday's practice, reports ESPN.com. Green Bay is coming off its bye and hosts the Bears on Sunday.

Packers 'very confident' about Aaron Rodgers' status


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the team's medical staff feels "very confident" about the health of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who strained his hamstring in Sunday's loss at New Orleans, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. With Green Bay on a Week 9 bye, Rodgers is not expected to miss any time.

"So far, so good I would say is how we're looking at it," McCarthy said.

Offensive coordinator Tom Clements told the paper the injury eliminated "designed quarterback movement plays" but added he did not need to "revamp the whole plan."


Aaron Rodgers: 'I'm not going to miss any time'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said the hamstring injury he sustained in the third quarter Sunday night won't keep him out of the team's next game Nov. 9 against the Bears. "I'm not going to miss any time," Rodgers told reporters.

Following the injury, the Packers kept Rodgers in the shotgun and stopped calling rollouts and other plays that required him to move a lot, coach Mike McCarthy said. Green Bay is on a bye Week 9.


Aaron Rodgers throws for 418 yards but hurts hamstring


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was cruising Sunday night in New Orleans until hurting his left hamstring on a 7-yard run in the third quarter. Rodgers reached for his hamstring after the play and got it worked on by the training staff. He was far less mobile after that, but the good news is Green Bay has a bye Week 9.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers did not aggravate the injury by playing through it. "I thought he played smart and didn't put himself in position for further injury," McCarthy said.

Rodgers went 13 of 18 for 278 yards and a touchdown in the first half. He finished 28 of 39 for 418 yards with the one score and two interceptions. He also ran untouched for a 14-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, looking gimpy as he crossed the goal line.

Both of Rodgers' interceptions were deflected. The first ended his string of 212 passes without a pick. He had not thrown two interceptions in a game since Week 17 at Chicago last year.

Rodgers is off until Green Bay hosts the Bears on Nov. 9.


Packers QB Aaron Rodgers tosses three touchdowns Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers turned in another dominant effort, and a result, he sat out a portion of the final quarter in a comfortable 38-17 Week 7 victory over the Panthers at home on Sunday.

Rodgers got off to a fast start, hooking up with Jordy Nelson for a 59-yard strike on the opening drive. In the second quarter, he found Randall Cobb for a 3-yard score. He found rookie Davante Adams for a 21-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Rodgers compiled 255 yards through the air while completing 19 of 22 attempts. He added three touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked twice and finished with a 154.5 passer rating. He rushed for 21 yards on three carries. He has 18 touchdowns and one interception through seven games.

Green Bay will travel to New Orleans for a showdown against the Saints in Week 8.


Packers' McCarthy: I've seen Aaron Rodgers play better


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn't thrown an interception since Week 1 and has the best touchdown-to-interception ratio (15 to 1) in the NFL. He's thrown at least three touchdowns four times and has Green Bay riding a three-game winning streak heading into Week 7 vs. Carolina. 

Despite a fairly strong start from Rodgers, coach Mike McCarthy indicates there might be even more room for improvement.

"I've seen him play better," McCarthy said, per ESPN. "I just think one thing from the standard that he's set and all the little things he's done at a high level, he's got a lot of good football in front of him. I mean, the way we're taking care of the football, the big plays and timely plays -- exceptional. No doubt about it. It's not really as much his individual performance I'm referring to. It's our focus this week offensively is we were not clearly as efficient as we want to be after six games. So that's a focus of ours, and it's part of the way we spent our time here the last couple days."


Don't go crazy for Davante Adams


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) For a team's third wide receiver to have significant value in Fantasy, that team's passing attack has to be pretty explosive. Green Bay's typically has been with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is having a banner year with 15 touchdown passes to just one interception.

And yet in three of Rodgers' six games this season, he's thrown for less than 200 yards. As a team, the Packers rank only 20th in passing yards per game. That's not my idea of explosive.

Certainly things could change. Eddie Lacy has failed to give them much of a running game, which could cause them to go more pass-heavy in the weeks ahead. But more than anything, the reason third wide receiver Davante Adams performed so well Week 6 at Miami, catching six passes for 77 yards, was because co-No. 1 Randall Cobb didn't. Rodgers threw for a modest 264 yards. Unless he goes for a consistent 300, you can't expect Adams to make a regular contribution in Fantasy in his current role.

So in standard leagues of 12 teams or fewer, I'm leaving him on waivers. For the list of wide receivers Jamey Eisenberg is adding over him, check out his latest Playing the Waiver Wire.


Packers' Aaron Rodgers scores game-winner in final seconds of Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was dialed in on Sunday, showing some fourth-quarter heroics in a come-from-behind victory over the Dolphins in Week 6.

Rodgers went 5-for-5 passing and hooked up with Jordy Nelson for a 9-yard touchdown strike in the opening drive of the game. In the third quarter, he found Randall Cobb for a 5-yard score. Down four points, Rodgers led his team to an 11-play, 60-yard drive which resulted in a 4-yard touchdown to Andrew Quarless with three seconds remaining in the game to give Green Bay the victory.

Rodgers compiled 264 yards through the air while completing 24 of 42 passes. He added three touchdowns and no interceptions, registering a 99.7 passer rating. He was sacked three times and rushed for 34 yards on seven attempts in a 27-24 victory. He has 1,419 passing yards to go along with 15 touchdowns and one interception on the year.

The Packers will host the Panthers in Week 7.


Packers' Aaron Rodgers cruises past Vikings with three TDs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers became the 38th quarter in NFL history to reach 200 career touchdown passes, moving past Phil Simms on all-time list on Thursday against Vikings in Week 5. Rodgers reached the mark in his 99th game, making him the second fastest in NFL history to reach the milestone (Dan Marino, 89 games).

Rodgers found Randall Cobb in the end zone for an 8-yard strike in the first quarter. On the ensuing drive, he fired a 66-yard play action pass for a touchdown to Jordy Nelson. He threw an 11-yard dart down the middle to Davante Adams for a touchdown late in the second quarter. With the game well in hand, Rodgers was pulled for Matt Flynn early in the fourth quarter. He compiled 156 yards through the air while completing 12 of 19 passes. He added three touchdowns and no interceptions in a comfortable 42-10 victory. he was sacked twice and finished with a 138.7 passer rating.

Rodgers has 1,155 yards and a 12-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio through five games. The Packers will travel to Miami to face the Dolphins in Week 6.


Relax is right for Aaron Rodgers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) Aaron Rodgers' message to those who were beginning to doubt both him and the Packers offense after a 19-7 loss in Week 3 was simply relax.

Guess he knew what he was talking about.

If you own him in Fantasy, his four-touchdown performance Week 4 at the Bears should bring you some relief. The Bears had been OK against the pass coming into the game, in part because they faced the Bills and the Jets in two of their first three games, but their shortcomings on the defensive side of the ball were evident. And Rodgers torched them, just like he did the Jets in Week 2.

The Lions weren't known as a standout defensive team prior to facing Rodgers, but they had another dandy of a performance Week 4 at the Jets, making them 4 for 4 in containing the pass this season. I'm thinking they were more the reason for Rodgers' struggles in Week 3 than Rodgers himself. And of course, we halfway expected Rodgers to struggle at Seattle in Week 1. Everyone not wearing a Seahawks uniform struggles there.

Rodgers is fine. He remains a stud quarterback in Fantasy and should be at his studliest Week 5 against Minnesota.


Aaron Rodgers back to explosive self in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had been surprisingly mediocre heading into Week 4 against archrival Chicago. He was typically brillaint Sunday.

Rodgers completed 4 of 5 passes for 79 yards on a touchdown drive on the first possession of the game and remained on a roll the rest of the way. He finished 22 of 28 for 302 yards and with a season-best four scores.

He began his touchdown blitz with a 3-yarder to Jordy Nelson five minutes into the second quarter. By the time the teams had finished chewing up the turf, he had added another scoring strike to Nelson and two to Randall Cobb. He averaged nearly 14 yards per completion.

Rodgers, who added an 8-yard run to his prolific totals, has little time to enjoy the fruits of victory. His team hosts Minnesota on Thursday night.


Stay the course with Aaron Rodgers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/25/2014) You may be tempted to bench quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Fantasy after two of his first three games were duds, but that would make me sad.

It would make Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard sad, too, judging by their rankings for Week 4. Both have Rodgers either first or second at quarterback. No lie.

The crux of the frustration is that nobody really knows what the Lions defense is just yet. We halfway expected Rodgers to stink Week 1 at Seattle, but that was against a Super Bowl champion at a venue legendary for its difficulty. The Lions are just ... the Lions.

But they're also the team that intercepted Eli Manning twice in Week 1, limiting him to just 163 yards. They're also team that took down Cam Newton four times in Week 2 and that's allowed the fourth-fewest Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Individually, those accomplishments count for little, but put them all together, culminating in Rodgers' Week 3 performance, and they begin to mean something.

So if you operate under the premise that Rodgers struggled against two of the league's toughest pass defenses and thrived against one of its most ordinary, you should like his chances in the weeks to come.

And that makes him a perfect buy-low right now.


Aaron Rodgers: Relax, we'll be fine


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Packers' offensive players are facing criticism after Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Lions. Rodgers threw for just 162 yards, and Green Bay averaged 3.5 yards per carry.

Rodgers said the offense isn't playing fast enough or converting enough third downs. "We haven't made it easy on ourselves, but we're a resilient bunch," he said, via NFL.com. "We'll bounce back."

Added Rodgers: "Relax. We're going to be fine."

Green Bay visits the Bears on Sunday.


Aaron Rodgers held in check Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was held in check Week 3 against the Lions.

Rodgers completed 16 of 27 passes for 162 yards and a score. Detroit did a great job limiting Rodgers' big play ability. He averaged just 6.0 yards per attempt during the contest. The Lions also kept Rodgers from making plays with his legs. He did not attempt a rush all game. Rodgers was also hurt a bit by drops, as the Packers couldn't seem to haul in a couple passes during the game. 

Rodgers will be rebound Week 4 against the Bears. 


Aaron Rodgers shines with three TDs in win vs. Jets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 25 of his 42 pass attempts for 346 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 31-24 win over the Jets Sunday.

Rodgers fumbled the first snap of the game, resulting in a turnover. He watched most of the remainder of his first-half drives peter out in Jets territory before hitting Randall Cobb for a touchdown right before the break. Rodgers connected with Cobb again from one yard out in the third quarter, and tossed his third touchdown on an 80-yard catch-and-run by Jordy Nelson.

It was a nice rebound effort for Rodgers after the Seahawks held the Packers offense at bay in Week 1, and he passed Barr Starr in career passing yards to take second place on the franchise's passing leader list behind Brett Favre. Rodgers will head to Detroit to face the Lions in Week 3.
