Coach Mike McCarthy said he'd "have zero issue" attempting the two-point conversion after every touchdown this season.
The Packers obviously won't attempt the "two" every single time, but McCarthy becoming more aggressive would be a boost to the offense. Of course, if Green Bay went for two more it'd knock K Mason Crosby down a few pegs in fantasy. Jun 15 - 1:04 PM

Aaron Rodgers (knee scope) is expected to be ready for OTAs in April.

According to a source, Rodgers has been "running around," and is close to full health. The source reiterated Rodgers' operation was "just a cleanup" procedure. Rodgers started all 16 games each of the past two seasons after missing seven contests with a broken collarbone in 2013.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers (knee) should be ready for OTAs.

Rodgers underwent arthroscopic knee surgery after the season, but he was healthy enough to compete in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am earlier this month. "The way he's hitting the golf ball," McCarthy said, "I would think he'd be ready to go." With Jordy Nelson's rehab reportedly going well, Rodgers is poised for a bounce-back season.

Aaron Rodgers said his surgically repaired knee feels great.

Rodgers had his left knee scoped last month, but was back on the golf course this week for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. "It was just good to be out there walking normally," he said. "It’s nice to not have any clunking around or anything, so it was good." It looks like Rodgers' recovery is going smooth.

Aaron Rodgers underwent arthroscopic knee surgery after the season.

The procedure took place "within days" of the Packers' January 16 playoff loss to Arizona. A source told ESPN's Rob Demovsky that Rodgers' surgery was a "minor scope," and described it as a "clean-up of an old injury." The procedure may cost Rodgers part of the Packers' offseason program, but isn't a concern for training camp. Rodgers is a buy-low target in Dynasty leagues.

Aaron Rodgers completed 24-of-44 passes for 261 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Packers' Divisional Round, overtime loss to the Cardinals.

Rodgers was effective all game, but the real story came in the fourth quarter. After the Cardinals scored 10 points to take a touchdown lead, Rodgers led an improbable two-minute drive which included two miraculous plays. The first was a 60-yard bomb with the offense facing a fourth-and-20 from their own four with less than a minute left, and the second was yet another impossible Hail Mary touchdown off of his back foot while on the move to tie the game. Jeff Janis, who was only playing because Randall Cobb left with a bruised lung in the first quarter, came down with both improbable catches. Despite the heroics, the Packers defense allowed Larry Fitzgerald to run through them in overtime to give up the win. The overtime capitulation was a fitting end to what has been a frustrating season for Rodgers, who threw for less than 4,000 yards and had the worst completion percentage of his career while trying to operate without much help.
Jan 16 - 11:54 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 21-of-36 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Wild Card win over the Redskins, 35-18.

Rodgers had no time to throw early, taking a sack for a safety on the Packers' second drive. Fill-in LT J.C. Tretter -- formerly a center -- took awhile to settle in against power-rushing Redskins rookie OLB Preston Smith. Rodgers also missed two long, wide-open throws to Randall Cobb, failing to set his feet when sensing pressure. By early in the second quarter, the Packers had as many yards (11) as the Redskins had points. Turning to a no-huddle attack, Rodgers kick-started the offense with two second-quarter touchdown drives capped by scores to Cobb (12 yards) and Davante Adams (10). Green Bay's running game and defense took over in the second half. The Packers scored on five straight possessions from the late second quarter into the fourth. Green Bay will take its newfound offensive momentum into the Divisional Round against Arizona, which destroyed the Packers 38-8 in Week 16.

Aaron Rodgers said he needs to "let it fly a little more" for the offense to be successful.

"Maybe I have to adjust my mindset and kind of let it fly a little more because we’ve had some success doing that," Rodgers said, "throwing the ball down the field, adjusting some routes, making some scramble adjustments and playing a little looser because the urgency is up in those moments." Rodgers hates throwing interceptions, but the offense has looked best this season when he has played more aggressively and taken chances late in games. If Rodgers adopts more of a gunslinger mentality this weekend, the offense could find success against a vulnerable Redskins defense.
Jan 8 - 12:05 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 28-of-44 passes for 291 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Vikings.

Rodgers didn’t throw his only touchdown until the fourth quarter. He also lost a fumble that was returned for a score. Rodgers’s interception was his third end-zone pick in the last three weeks and won the game for Minnesota. He rarely had a clean pocket without LT David Bakhtiari and took five sacks. Rodgers had a down year by his standards, throwing for 3,821 yards and a 31:8 TD/INT ratio. The Packers will play the Redskins in next week’s Wild Card Round.

Week 17's Vikings-Packers game has been flexed to Sunday Night Football.

The NFL schedule makers leave open the Sunday nighter every year to ensure it's filled by a critical game. Originally scheduled for 1:00PM ET, Vikings-Packers will move to the 8:30PM ET time slot as both teams vie for the NFC North crown. The loser will either be the No. 5 or No. 6 seed. Minnesota will be coming off a blowout win over the Giants. Green Bay will be returning home after a blowout loss in Arizona.

Aaron Rodgers completed 15-of-28 passes for 151 yards, one touchdown, and one interception before being benched in the fourth quarter with the Packers trailing 38-8 to the Cardinals in Week 16.

Rodgers was hilariously awful and received zero protection from his offensive line. He absorbed eight sacks for 70 yards lost and had two others wiped out by penalties. On three of the sacks, Rodgers fumbled, losing two that were returned the other way for touchdowns. Rodgers' interception was a horrific ball forced into coverage in the end zone to Justin Bethel. The touchdown pass was a dump-off to Eddie Lacy from 28 yards out with the Packers trailing by 31 points. Owners that decided to sit Rodgers in championship week showed guts and made the right call clearly. Rodgers and the Packers will reset and play for the NFC North title against the Vikings in Week 17.

Aaron Rodgers think the offense lacks "clear-cut direction."

Despite a win in Oakland and a clinched playoff berth, Rodgers was clearly not happy with the offense in the post-game press conference. Rodgers said the offense was "too inconsistent" against the Raiders, and RG T.J. Lang added he does not believe the offense is "playing up to our talent level." The running game which sparked the offense against the Cowboys last week again went missing against Oakland, and Rodgers and his middling receivers struggled to move the ball through the air. Green Bay is in a great position to host a wildcard game, but they could be looking at a quick exit from the tournament if the offense does not get turned around in the next two weeks.

Aaron Rodgers completed 22-of-39 passes for 204 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Packers' Week 15 win over the Raiders.

Rodgers was a victim of game flow early, as Derek Carr threw two early interceptions, one setting the Packers up at the 18-yard line leading to an eventual John Kuhn rushing score, and the other being returned for a pick-six. The Packers' offense wasn't on the field very much early. Still, they didn't capitalize on opportunities. Green Bay had the ball at the Raiders' one-yard line on first-and-goal and settled for a field goal, and Rodgers had another touchdown called back on an OPI penalty. He also threw a pick in the end zone in the fourth quarter. Rodgers has failed to top 218 yards passing in 4-of-5 games. He'll be a borderline QB1 next week against the Cardinals.

Aaron Rodgers completed 22-of-35 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 28-7, Week 14 win over the Cowboys.

The Packers rode their running game in this one, but Rodgers seemed more on time with his receivers after coach Mike McCarthy took over play-calling duties. It's worth noting that Davante Adams was benched in the first half, with Jared Abbrederis coming on for a bigger role. Rodgers has thrown for two or fewer scores in nine of his past 10 starts, but might finally get back on the three-TD track against the Raiders in Week 15.

Aaron Rodgers completed 24-of-36 passes for 273 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Green Bay's 27-23, Week 13 win over the Lions, adding four carries for 27 yards and an additional score.

He lost a first half fumble. Rodgers and the Packers were heading toward another dismal loss until Rodgers uncorked a 61-yard Hail Mary touchdown as time expired. Given a free play after a dubious facemasking penalty, Rodgers made the most of it with as textbook of a deep ball as you will ever see. The exciting finish shouldn't mask what was another concerning performance, however. Rodgers struggled with his mechanics as his receivers struggled even more to create separation. Only TE Richard Rodgers was able to find any space in the defense. Rodgers' next chance to get on track will come in Week 14 against the Cowboys' solid pass defense. He'll be a mid-range QB1 for that one.
