Aaron Rodgers completed 25-of-42 passes for 346 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.
As expected, the Packers went after the Jets' shaky secondary instead of their beastly front seven. That strategy was only more needed after the Pack fell behind 21-3 early in the second quarter. Rodgers easily proved his Week 1 dud at Seattle was a matchup-induced disaster as he and Jordy Nelson (9-209-1) feasted for massive numbers. Rodgers, a serious threat to Peyton Manning as fantasy's No. 1 QB, gets three tasty division matchups next (at DET, at CHI, vs. MIN). Sep 14 - 7:54 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 23-of-33 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Packers' 36-16, Week 1 loss to the Seahawks.

Rodgers and the Packers walked right into the Seahawks' home buzzsaw, struggling for flow on offense, and finding absolutely zero easy throws. Rodgers' two best passes came on the run outside of the pocket, but neither went for a completion. The first did draw a 44-yard pass interference penalty, however. Rodgers' pick was a throw too far in front of Jordy Nelson. Although it was a dismal night, the only long-term concern was the loss of RT Bryan Bulaga, who re-injured the knee that held him out for all of 2013. Derek Sherrod was horrible in relief. Nevertheless, Rodgers should rebound and pick on the Jets' undermanned secondary in Week 2.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers plan to give Aaron Rodgers "more control than ever" on offense this season.

In other words, the Pack will be pushing the tempo and running more no-huddle offense. Rodgers is Rotoworld's No. 2 quarterback for 2014, but has a devilish first matchup in Thursday night's road game with the Seahawks. It should be the stiffest test he faces all season.
Sep 4 - 2:15 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 9-of-20 passes for 139 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Rodgers' nimble feet, pocket presence and rifle arm were on full display as he hit Jordy Nelson on a stop route for one score and threaded the needle to Andrew Quarless for his second touchdown. He finishes the preseason 20-of-33 for 267 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions while playing just eight series. Rodgers is our No. 2 quarterback, barely behind Peyton Manning and just ahead of Drew Brees.

In his first action of the preseason, Aaron Rodgers completed 11-of-13 passes for 128 yards and one touchdown Saturday afternoon versus the Rams.

Rodgers played the opening two series and was as close to perfect as it can get. He marched the offense down the field on consecutive 12-play scoring drives, finishing the first one off with a three-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb. The second drive could have easily ended with six points, but a Rodgers-to-Jordy Nelson TD was called back on a penalty. This Packers offense has a legit shot to lead the league in points. Rodgers is a locked-in top-three fantasy QB.

Aaron Rodgers is inactive for Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

The Packers are also resting Eddie Lacy and Jordy Nelson. Matt Flynn will start with the first-team offense.
Aug 9 - 6:55 PM

The Packers' goal is to run 75 offensive plays per game this season.

The Broncos led the league at 72.1 plays per game last season; the Pack were 11th at 66.8. Getting 75 offensive snaps off weekly isn't very realistic, but speaks to the tempo at which coach Mike McCarthy wants his team to play. The goal is to prevent defensive substitutions, keeping opponents in base formations. "We play pretty fast, but you always want to play faster," McCarthy said. More plays mean more box score production across the board, especially with Aaron Rodgers at the controls. Target Packers in 2014 fantasy football drafts.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers has had his "best spring."

The broken left collarbone that derailed the Packers' 2013 season has been fully healed for more than seven months now. So it's not a surprise that Rodgers, now 30 years old, 11 pounds lighter and squarely in his prime, is looking sharp. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes that the average age of starting Super Bowl quarterbacks over the last 48 years is 29.80.
Jul 1 - 7:01 PM

Aaron Rodgers promises to keep using his scrambling ability when opportunities present themselves.

Rodgers' athleticism is an underrated part of his skill set, both in real life and fantasy. "It adds an extra dimension to my game," he said. Rodgers has generally popped off three or four rushing TDs per season, but didn't have any last year. We can expect him to continue to supplement his stats with rushing yards and scores this season. Rodgers is Rotoworld's No. 2 QB for 2014.

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Aaron Rodgers' left collarbone is completely healed, and that yoga has him "11 pounds lighter and more flexible."

He's believed to be at the lightest weight of his playing career. Now on the wrong side of 30, yoga is probably a good habit for Rodgers to adopt. The collarbone is not a concern heading into 2014. Before last season, Rodgers had missed just one game with injury in five years as Green Bay's starter.
May 29 - 4:23 PM

Aaron Rodgers says there are no residual issues with the broken left collarbone that cost him seven games last season.

"It feels good," Rodgers said. "I don't have any issues." Rodgers did not appear to be inhibited during his two-game return, while the Packers wouldn't have cleared him had they feared any future issues. The injury is a non-story heading into the 2014 season.
Feb 11 - 7:07 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 17-of-26 passes for 177 yards and a touchdown, and tacked on 11 yards rushing in the Packers' Wild Card round loss to the 49ers.

Green Bay's offensive line couldn't handle San Francisco's superior defensive front early, failing to both protect and run block adequately. Rodgers took four sacks among his first 21 dropbacks. The Packers managed six total yards in the first quarter, with a trio of three-and-outs. They finally got a spark from Tramon Williams' second-quarter interception, as Rodgers responded with a long drive and five-yard touchdown toss to Jordy Nelson. Rodgers' highlight-reel play came on an escape from a surefire fourth-quarter sack, followed by a rocket ball to Randall Cobb for 26 yards on fourth-and-two. The Packers traded scoring possessions back and forth with the 49ers for much of the second half, but Niners K Phil Dawson's 33-yard field goal would seal the deal. Rodgers' 2014 fantasy outlook remains elite despite his largely injury-ruined 2013. He'll be a top-three quarterback pick alongside Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.
Jan 5 - 7:51 PM

The forecast for Lambeau Field in Green Bay is calling for temperatures in the single digits throughout Sunday afternoon's 49ers-Packers playoff game.

The game has a 4:40 PM ET kickoff. Weather.com projects it to be near 5 degrees when the game starts, with a wind chill near -14 degrees, and it will only get colder. Winds will be whipping at 18-19 MPH. There's a 20-30 percent chance of snow during the game. Normally, a cold game would favor the Packers, but this is insanely frigid. Neither team may have a real edge.

The projected high for Sunday in Green Bay is -5 degrees.

In other words, Green Bay and San Francisco are going to be playing in Ice Bowl-esque temperatures. Per AccuWeather.com, temperatures are expected to hover near -7 degrees at 5PM CT, with the wind chill plunging to near -30 degrees. If the forecast holds, it will be one of the coldest games in NFL history. It's weather so unbelievably cold that it's unlikely to provide much of an advantage for the Pack. Both teams are going to suffer. Sunday is going to be about survival on the Frozen Tundra.
Jan 2 - 6:15 PM

Aaron Rodgers is not listed on this week's injury report.

Rodgers emerged from his Week 17 return unscathed. He'll be ready to rock against the Niners on Sunday in a game that could feature sub-zero temperatures on the frozen tundra. In four career games when temps were under 21 degrees, Rodgers has posted a 95.2 passer rating while averaging 255.2 passing yards and tossing six touchdowns against three interceptions.
