  • Aaron Rodgers Questionable To Return On Sunday

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (oblique) is questionable to return to Sunday night's matchup against Philadelphia. The signal-caller is already dealing with a thumb injury, so another ailment added to his list wouldn't be ideal regarding his availability moving forward. Rodgers was having a fantastic evening before taking the hit that resulted in his premature departure, amassing 140 yards and two touchdowns off 11-for-16 passing. He was observed exiting the locker room and walking back to the field without his shoulder pads, so it appears Jordan Lovecould be under center for the remainder of the contest.

  • Aaron Rodgers Playing Through Avulsion Fracture

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) has been playing through an avulsion fracture in his right thumb, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. The veteran initially injured himself in Week 5 but has yet to miss a game in 2022. An avulsion fracture occurs when the ligament rips "away from the attachment, taking some bone with it." The resulting joint instability can make it difficult to grip and throw a football. Such an ailment almost always requires surgery, which Rodgers intends to put off until the offseason. For now, he'll remain on the field, playing through pain and trying to get the 4-7 Packers back in playoff contention. In the meantime, he'll continue to rank as a high-end QB2 in fantasy football.

  • David Bakhtiari Questionable For Week 12

    Green Bay Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) remains questionable for the Week 12 meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles. The veteran dealt with the same issue heading into the Week 11 matchup against Tennessee but managed to suit up. He also practiced in full on Friday, so it would be surprising if he wasn't available for this one. Aaron Rodgers could certainly use him, especially facing a punishing Eagles defense that ranks third in the league in sacks. That said, Rodgers' outlook isn't promising versus Philly. However, the signal-caller will be a less attractive fantasy option if Bakhtiari isn't available.

  • Aaron Rodgers A Low-End Streaming Option In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will go on the road to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The reigning MVP has been a more viable fantasy option the past two weeks compared to the first nine weeks of the season, but he still has yet to finish inside the top 10 at the position. Rodgers receiving corps is only missing rookie Romeo Doubs, but he faces an Eagles defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to the quarterback position this season. The Eagles are more susceptible to the run, meaning Green Bay will likely attack them with the running back tandem of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon at a high rate. The 38-year-old quarterback has a chance to finish as a fringe QB1 if he can throw multiple touchdowns, but he lacks the upside against a stiff Philadelphia defense to finish inside the top 10. Rodgers should be considered a low-end streaming option in Week 12, but you can likely find a better option on the waiver wire.

  • Aaron Rodgers Has Been Playing With Broken Thumb

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) confirmed on Wednesday that his right thumb has been broken since Week 5, when the injury happened on the last play in the London game. Surgery has never been on the table, and it won't be after the season, either. The 38-year-old future Hall of Famer was once again limited in practice on Wednesday, as he has been since he broke his right thumb. Rodgers hasn't missed any time with the injury, but his accuracy has been affected, and the Packers' offensive skill players continue to be banged up with injuries around him. In a tough matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday night, Rodgers will be a midrange QB2 option for fantasy managers.

  • Aaron Rodgers Tosses Two Touchdowns In Week 11 Loss

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 24-of-39 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns during the team's 27-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The reigning MVP kept it clean and did not throw an interception for the second week in a row, but the Packers' offense reverted back to their pass-heavy ways this week to exploit the Tennessee pass defense, leading to another tough loss. It will go down as one of Rodgers' better fantasy performances of the season, but he will likely finish as a fringe QB1 by the end of the week. Wide receiver Christian Watson has provided a bit of a spark in the passing game, but Green Bay could struggle again next week when they travel to Philadelphia. Consider Rodgers a less-than-desirable streaming option in that matchup.

    Green Bay Packers offensive tackles David Bakhtiari (knee) and Elgton Jenkins (knee) are both active for the Thursday night game against the Tennessee Titans after being listed as questionable to play. The left side of Green Bay's offensive line will receive a big boost with both Bakhtiari and Jenkins available in Week 11. It's good news for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, running back Aaron Jones and the rest of the Packers offense as they look for their second straight win following a five-game losing streak that was snapped last Sunday.

  • Aaron Rodgers Looks To Build On Last Week's Success

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) will face the Tennessee Titans this Thursday night. Rodgers has dealt with the thumb injury for weeks now and was left off the final injury report on Wednesday. Last week was the first time the reigning MVP finished as a top-10 fantasy quarterback all season, and he will look to build upon that success this week against the Titans. Tennessee is a great matchup, as they have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position and have given up the second-most passing yards. While Romeo Doubs (ankle) is still out, Rodgers will still have Allen Lazard and last week's breakout star Christian Watson. Rodgers threw just 20 passes last week as the Packers decided to lean on the run game more, but if he can continue to be hyper-efficient, then there is no reason he can't finish inside the top 12 again in Week 11. Consider the 38-year-old a back-end QB1 for fantasy this week.

  • Aaron Rodgers Limited In Practice On Tuesday

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday after receiving a DNP on Monday. The 38-year-old is coming off an impressive performance against an explosive Dallas defense on Sunday, leading his team to a 31-28 overtime victory. The former MVP has been under scrutiny amidst a 4-6 season but can still take his team to the playoffs because they are tied for the eighth-best record in the NFC. Rodgers has been managing the thumb issue for several weeks now and will take on the Titans Thursday night in what figures to be a competitive contest, facing another stout defense.

  • Aaron Rodgers Throws Three Touchdowns During OT Victory

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 14-of-20 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns during the team's 31-28 overtime victory over the Dallas Cowboys. For the first time all season, the reigning MVP threw three touchdown passes, all of which were caught by rookie Christian Watson. The Packers' offense finally went with a more balanced approach and operated in a much cleaner fashion than it had through the first nine weeks. The 20 pass attempts were Rodgers' fewest all season, but he finished Week 10 with his highest fantasy point total of the year. If Green Bay remains balanced, the 38-year-old quarterback could finally be a viable fantasy option. The Packers will host the Titans next week, and Rodgers should be considered a back-end QB1 in that matchup.

  • Aaron Rodgers Better Left On The Bench In Week 10

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers (thumb) will face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10. The reigning MVP has been playing through a thumb injury and is in no danger of missing the game. Rodgers had a chance to bounce back for fantasy purposes last week after having an abysmal season up to that point but failed to do so. He led the Packers offense to just nine points against Detroit and finished as the QB13 overall. With multiple pass-catching options out this week due to injury, Rodgers is better left off the fantasy radar against Dallas this week. The Cowboys allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to the quarterback position, and Rodgers has finished as a top-12 option just once this year. There is a slim chance the 38-year-old has a high-end fantasy performance in Week 10. Consider him a low-end QB2 that should be benched in the majority of leagues this weekend.

  • Aaron Rodgers, Sammy Watkins Miss Practice

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (knee) both missed practice on Wednesday. Rodgers continues to be limited in what he can do in practice to kick off the week, but he always has returned on Thursday and Friday and hasn't missed a game due to the injury. It seems like every single one of his receivers are currently injured. It's sad to say, but Rodgers has become a low-upside QB2 in fantasy with the lack of receiving talent around him. Watkins hasn't been 100 percent since coming off Injured Reserve in Week 7. Despite plenty of opportunity in the receiving room with everyone else seemingly injured, he has just four catches on 10 targets for 48 yards. Watkins must get healthy and on the same page with Rodgers before fantasy managers will even look at him.

  • Aaron Rodgers A Strong Streaming Option

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) will travel to Detroit to face the Lions this Sunday. He is on track to play despite his limited practice participation, as he has followed the same practice pattern over the past few weeks. The reigning MVP has had a rough fantasy season thus far and is currently the QB17 in overall points scored. His wide receiver corps, which had a ton of question marks entering the season, has been banged up, but he should have his top option Allen Lazard (shoulder), back this week for their divisional matchup. Detroit has given up the second-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position and has only generated two interceptions through seven games. While many have moved away from Rodgers in recent weeks, six teams are on bye in Week 9, including Dak Prescott, Daniel Jones, Russell Wilson, and Jimmy Garoppolo. The 38-year-old has been disappointing even in plus matchups thus far but should be considered a fringe QB1 against Detroit.

  • Aaron Rodgers Throws Two Touchdown During Week 8 Loss

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 19 of 30 passes for 203 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception during the team's 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The reigning MVP added one carry for 11 yards to his total. It was another mediocre fantasy performance for Rodgers, who has not thrown for 250 or more yards since Week 4. The stat line was better than many expected against the stout Buffalo defense, but the 38-year-old lost another receiver in this game. Christian Watson (concussion) left after catching a single pass early in the contest. The Packers' receiver corps is a massive problem that Rodgers has not been able to overcome for fantasy purposes. He may have Allen Lazard (shoulder) back next week in a much more favorable matchup against the division-rival Detroit Lions. Rodgers should be considered a streaming option in that matchup.

  • Aaron Rodgers Should Be Left On The Bench In Week 8

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) will travel to Buffalo to face the Bills this Sunday night. The reigning MVP was given Wednesday off from practice but returned to full Thursday and is on track to play. He finally finished as a QB1 in Week 7 but failed to score 16 fantasy points and posted his third-lowest fantasy total of the season. To put it bluntly, Rodgers has been a bad fantasy option. He is the current QB18 overall and has averaged just 14.3 fantasy points per game. The 38-year-old will be without his top target Allen Lazard (shoulder) and has to face a Buffalo defense that allows the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to the quarterback position. Since Rodgers has failed to produce significant fantasy numbers through seven weeks, even when given a plus matchup, he can safely be benched or left on the waiver wire in Week 8. The veteran does have a chance to bounce back next week against Detroit.

  • Aaron Rodgers Sticking To Same Routine

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday's session. He has his injured right thumb taped, and it's the same routine he's followed in recent weeks after initially injuring his thumb three weeks ago. The 38-year-old shouldn't be in any danger of missing the Sunday night showdown on the road against the Buffalo Bills this weekend. But with veteran receiver Randall Cobb (ankle) on Injured Reserve and receivers Allen Lazard (shoulder) and Christian Watson (hamstring) potentially being sidelined, Rodgers' aerial weapons are looking pretty thin heading into a hostile environment against a strong defense. Fantasy managers shouldn't consider him in QB1 territory against the Bills.

  • Aaron Rodgers Misses Practice Wednesday

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) was absent from practice on Wednesday. This missed practice now marks the third Wednesday in a row that Rodgers has been unavailable. The former MVP has been enduring a rough season as he's been unable to build a strong rapport with any Green Bay receiver while his statistics have suffered. While he has continued to play over the weeks, this thumb issue may be a legitimate factor for his drop in performance. Fantasy managers should assume that Rodgers will suit up, but he is taking on a stout Buffalo Bills defense. It'd be best to look elsewhere for a starting quarterback in Week 8.

  • Aaron Rodgers Has Another Pedestrian Fantasy Performance

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 23-of-35 pass attempts for 194 yards and two touchdowns during the team's 23-21 loss to the Washington Commanders. This was a prove-it game for fantasy purposes for the reigning MVP, but he still failed to put up big numbers in a plus matchup. The Packers' offense, as a whole, looks broken. The run game produced only 38 total yards, and the wide receivers totaled only 109 of the 194 yards thrown against one of the worst pass defenses in football. It does not help that No. 1 wide receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder) left this game late and may not be available next week. The 38-year-old quarterback goes on the road to play Buffalo in Week 8. Even with Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert on bye, Rodgers should not be in any fantasy lineups next week.

  • David Bakhtiari Inactive Against Commanders

    Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), who came into the Week 7 game against the Washington Commanders listed as questionable, is officially inactive for Sunday's game. It's a blow for the Packers offense and an upgrade for the Commanders defense this weekend. It's a downgrade for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his protection in this contest, and it will be worth keeping an eye on to see if Bakhtiari will miss more than just this game. Rodgers hasn't had the kind of fantasy upside in 2022 that we've become accustomed to with All-Pro receiver Davante Adams in Las Vegas. Treat Rodgers as a low-end QB1 against Washington.

  • Aaron Rodgers Has Pivotal Week 7 Matchup Against Commanders

    Aaron Rodgers Has Pivotal Week 7 Matchup Against CommandersGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) will travel to Washington to face the Commanders this Sunday. He played through the injury last week and is on track to play in Week 7. Through six weeks, the reigning MVP has not finished inside the top 12 and is currently the QB20 overall in total fantasy points scored. Green Bay's offense has struggled since trading wide receiver Davante Adams this past offseason, and Rodgers' fantasy value has plummeted as a result. This matchup against Washington is crucial. The Commanders allow the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position and are tied for the second-most passing touchdowns allowed. Opposing quarterbacks have finished with 17 or more fantasy points in four out of six weeks against Washington. Trevor Lawrence and Ryan Tannehill were the only quarterbacks who failed to reach the mark. Rodgers needs to produce as a top-12 QB, especially in a week where Josh Allen and Jalen Hurts are on bye, for fantasy managers to trust him moving forward. The 38-year-old should be considered a fringe QB1 in Week 7.

  • Aaron Rodgers Back On The Practice Field

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) returned to a full practice on Thursday and appeared to have a similar tape job on his right thumb as last week. As he did last week, Rodgers returned to practice a day after sitting out on Wednesday. The 38-year-old will play this weekend against the Washington Commanders, where he'll be in play as a low-end QB1 option in fantasy. It's a good matchup on paper, as Washington's D has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game (19.5) to opposing QBs through six weeks of the season. Rodgers has nine touchdowns to three interceptions, but he has yet to eclipse the 300-yard passing mark in 2022 without All-Pro receiver Davante Adams as his go-to guy.

  • Aaron Rodgers Misses Wednesday's Practice

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) is dealing with a right thumb injury and officially did not practice on Wednesday. Rodgers also missed practice last Wednesday before returning to full practices on Thursday and Friday and playing in the Week 6 loss to the New York Jets. The 38-year-old future Hall of Famer should be fine for the Week 7 game against the Washington Commanders, but his thumb injury is worth watching. He went just 26-for-41 for 246 yards with one touchdown on Sunday and has yet to go over 300 yards passing in any of his six games in 2022 without All-Pro receiver Davante Adams. Fantasy managers should continue to consider Rodgers as more of a low-end QB1 with a limited ceiling this year.

  • Aaron Rodgers Struggling To Throw Deep

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is struggling to throw the deep ball this season. In fact, last week Rodgers was 0-for-6 on downfield throws, which is concerning. To be fair, the Packers don't exactly have many deep ball threats on this offense, but it hurts their team when they can't throw it downfield. The expectation is that the Packers are going to pound the ball with Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. Fantasy managers should still be able to count on Rodgers against the New York Jets in Week 6. Although, it sounds like the Packers might need to change their gameplan with the deep ball not working right now.

  • Aaron Rodgers A Solid Fantasy Option In Week 6

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (thumb) will face the New York Jets in Green Bay this Sunday. The 38-year-old has dealt with a thumb injury in practice this week, but head coach Matt LaFleur said, "we don't have much concern as far as gameday." Rodgers has yet to finish inside the top 12 this season, but he has a decent shot at making it there Sunday. The Jets are a solid matchup, as they allow the 13th-most fantasy points per game to the quarterback position. The downside is the Jets have had the fourth-fewest pass attempts thrown at their defense in the league. Opposing offenses are successfully running the ball against them, which could lead to another pedestrian stat line for the reigning MVP. Rodgers will need to clear 250 yards, throw for two or more touchdowns, and keep the turnovers at a minimum to finish inside the top 12. He should be considered a low-tier QB1 in Week 6.

As predicted, the 38-year-old future Hall of Famer hasn't been as good in 2022 without All-Pro receiver Davante Adams as his top target. He has yet to go over 300 yards passing in five games and has totaled 1,157 passing yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions heading into this weekend, where he'll remain in play as a low-end QB1 for fantasy managers against the Jets.

Rodgers is getting the day off from practice as a precaution and nothing more. The veteran quarterback has averaged 16.4 fantasy points per game since Week 1 and has a solid matchup against the New York Jets. While he is far from a must-start, Rodgers is a low-end QB1 this week.

The reigning MVP was on track to have a solid fantasy performance by the end of the first half, completing 18-of-24 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns. However, New York held the 38-year-old to just seven completions for 70 yards in the second half, swatting away both pass attempts toward the end zone late in the fourth quarter as Green Bay attempted to tie the game. It was an ugly loss, but moving forward, Rodgers has three games over the next month where he could exceed expectations compared to what he has done so far this season. The New York Jets are up next on the schedule, and with the game being in Lambeau, Rodgers should be considered a back-end QB1 for fantasy purposes.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will face the New York Giants in London Sunday. The reigning MVP has thrown two touchdowns in each of the last three games but has yet to finish as a top-12 fantasy option in any of the first four weeks. The 38-year-old's wide receiver corps is as healthy as it has been this season, with only Sammy Watkins (hamstring) set to miss this game since he is currently on the IR. The Giants have allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points per game to the quarterback position and are tied for the league lead in interceptions with seven total. With Rodgers averaging 233.8 yards per game and capping out at just two touchdowns thrown in any contest so far, the veteran quarterback heads into Week 5 as a fringe QB1 for fantasy managers.

It was another middling fantasy performance for the 38-year-old quarterback, who is one interception shy of matching his season total from last season with just four games in the books. Rodgers was able to generate over 250 passing yards and two touchdowns for the second week in a row against another tough defense and has started to mesh with his new corps of wide receivers. The reigning MVP has a much more favorable schedule for fantasy purposes over the next month, with the New York Giants traveling to face the Packers in London next week.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will face the New England Patriots in Green Bay this Sunday. The former MVP had a solid showing last week against a stout Tampa Bay defense but still finished outside the top 12 for fantasy purposes. Rodgers has an easier matchup this week against a New England defense that has tied for the sixth-most fantasy points per game allowed to the opposing quarterback through the first three weeks. However, there may not be a need for Green Bay to pass at a high rate, with the Patriots missing starting quarterback Mac Jones (ankle), leaving veteran Brian Hoyer as the starter. The game script could lead to the 39-year-old having another efficient stat line, but one that disappoints fantasy managers. Rodgers is a safe, fringe QB1 for fantasy managers, with a possibly low ceiling due to potentially getting out to an early lead.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers Sunday.

However, Rodgers still finished outside the top 15 for fantasy managers, and he is now going to face a Tampa Bay defense that has allowed 13 total points through two games. Not only will the reigning MVP face an elite pass defense, but he will be without veteran receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring), while Christian Watson (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (illness) are questionable heading into the weekend. Once again, Rodgers could be short on pass-catching talent, capping his fantasy scoring ceiling. There are potentially better streaming options on the waiver wire this week that are less risky to start, but Rodgers will head into Sunday as a borderline top 15 option at the position.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee show that he would like the offense to rely heavily on running backs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. Rodgers mentioned that both of his stud running backs should be getting "at least 15 touches each." Jones has seen 26 touches in two games so far after having a limited role in Week 1, but he went off for 170 total yards and two touchdowns in Week 2 when he touched the ball 18 times. Dillon has handled 28 carries and six receptions through the first two weeks of the season, as he led the way in Week 1 with 10 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown. Both players will continue to possess standalone value moving forward, but Jones looks like the more valuable fantasy asset if the two will be splitting touches evenly.

  • Aaron Rodgers Sees More Potential For Aaron Jones

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had high praise for the team's lead back, Aaron Jones, following their win over the Bears on Sunday. The veteran signal-caller touted the halfback's ability to be a threat in both the rushing and receiving game, emphasizing that he and AJ Dillon were an integral part of the game plan. The former MVP added, "we're just kind of scratching the surface I think with him, which is fun." While it's unclear exactly how that will translate in terms of the 27-year-old's usage, it's nice for fantasy football managers to hear. While he was out-carried 10-to-five and out-targeted six-to-five by Dillon in their season-opener, causing concern about his role, however, it returned to more of an even split in Week 2, leading to a massive game for the Texas El-Paso product. Jones remains a top-20 option, with top-12 upside in their context against the Buccaneers Sunday night.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went 19-for-25 for 234 yards and threw two touchdowns in the 27-10 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. The reigning MVP added five carries for 10 yards and lost one fumble. In what was a get-right matchup for Green Bay, Rodgers was able to return to form after last week's collapse against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers had the game well in hand by the time the first half had ended, leaning heavily on the run as Rodgers threw just seven passes the entire second half. The veteran passer spread the ball around the offense, targeting five separate wide receivers, with his leading target being Sammy Watkins, who had four targets. It is a different style of offense than we are used to seeing in Green Bay, but it got the job done Sunday. Rodgers will face a Tampa Bay defense next week that has allowed one passing touchdown so far this season.

    Green Bay Packers offensive tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) is questionable for the Sunday Night Football showdown against the division rival Chicago Bears. The All-Pro continues to make his way back from a torn ACL. However, he has dealt with several setbacks since the injury occurred in January 2021, so the team will undoubtedly be cautious before giving him the green light. With that said, the 30-year-old was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Friday while missing Thursday's session altogether, so there's a chance he may be out there. Nevertheless, with offensive linemen Elgton Jenkins (knee) and Jon Runyan (concussion) also questionable, Aaron Rodgers may have even more problems in Week 2 than he had during the opener.

  • Aaron Rodgers Looks To Bounce Back Against Chicago

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will face the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. After an abysmal fantasy performance in Week 1 against Minnesota, last season's MVP will look to bounce back in a favorable matchup. While Chicago held Trey Lance and the 49ers to 164 passing yards last week, the game was played in, essentially, a swamp due to weather conditions. Rodgers struggled with his new receiving corps but was missing top wideout Allen Lazard (ankle). Lazard has put in limited work at practice this week and could be back for the Packers' home opener Sunday. If Lazard is active, Rodgers should bounce back and finish as a back-end QB1 for fantasy managers. However, if Lazard is missing again, Rodgers would be a risky option with a low ceiling in Week 2.

The All-Pro tackle missed Week 1 as he continued to recover from a torn ACL in his left knee in January 2021. He will look to be a full participant in practice on Thursday or Friday. The 30-year-old's presence on the offensive line only helps quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was pressured constantly by the Vikings defense in Week 1. Bakhtiari would significantly boost Green Bay's offense if he could suit up against the Chicago Bears in Week 2.

The absences of these two talented linemen could limit quarterback Aaron Rodgers' comfort in the pocket, as well as hinder the effectiveness of running backs Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon.

  • Aaron Rodgers - Week 1 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers opens the regular season on the road against the Minnesota Vikings. The reigning MVP no longer has star wide receiver Davante Adams and will likely be without Allen Lazard (ankle) as he is officially doubtful for Sunday's matchup. It leaves Rodgers with Sammy Watkins, Randall Cobb, and Romeo Doubs at the top of the depth chart. Already losing some fantasy value with Adams no longer a part of the offense, Rodgers could struggle to open the season. He has a favorable matchup against the Vikings, who allowed the sixth-most points per game to the quarterback position. However, he may need to rely more on his run game with no alpha receiver to target. Rodgers is a back-end QB1 for fantasy managers in Week 1.

  • David Bakhtiari Says He Will Play Week 1

    Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) told reporters that he is on track to play in his team's Week 1 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Bakhtiari originally tore his ACL back in December 2020 and played in only one game in 2021. The All-Pro tackle's potential return would be a big boost for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Green Bay offense in an important divisional clash in Week 1. Bakhtiari told reporters that it was realistic to expect him to play Sunday. "Yeah, I mean I'm on the active roster, just like anyone else," he told reporters.
