  Packers | Aaron Rodgers fires TD in opener    Thu Sep 5, 11:30 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 18 of his 30 pass attempts for 203 yards and a touchdown in a 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Sept. 5. He added three carries for eight yards and was sacked five times.

Footballguys view: Rodgers numbers underwhelmed, as the Bears defense was still stifling, but he looked good on the touchdown drive and created both the big play and touchdown with throws that trusted his receivers to make the play. The offense doesn't look very fresh despite the change in coaches, and the Vikings will present another stiff test next week.

'I think we'd like to see him, but you're talking about a veteran quarterback that's played a lot of football,' LaFleur said via PackersNews.com following Thursday's game. 'I don't think it's a necessity, but it's certainly something that we'd like to see.'

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers expects to learn offense soon    Tue May 21, 09:46 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told reporters Tuesday, May 21, that he anticipates having new head coach Matt LaFleur's playbook pretty much learned in three months - roughly by the time the team end minicamp in June and takes a short break before training camp begins.

Footballguys view: The offense should be more creative under LaFleur (a Shanahan/McVay disciple) and Rodgers could have a bounce-back season in 2019. He just needs to stay healthy and Rodgers will produce at a high level. Rodgers admitted recently that last year he was not really 100 percent at any point. He's going off the board currently at QB3 (5.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers overcame knee fracture    Tue Apr 9, 12:43 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told a Milwaukee radio station Monday, April 8, that he suffered a a tibial-plateau fracture and an MCL sprain in Week 1 last season.

Footballguys view: Rodgers didn't quite look like himself last year and this added injury would make a lot of sense as to why he was a bit off. We should see Rodgers re-energized under new head coach Matt LaFluer.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers has backing of teammate    Sun Feb 24, 02:37 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will have a new coach for the first time since 2006, and Packers RB Aaron Jones is fully confident in Rodgers' ability to establish a good working relationship with head coach Matt LaFleur. 'I don't think Aaron will have a problem,' Jones said recently on NFL Network. 'He'll pick it up very quickly. He's coachable, and he wants to win, and he's a team player, and he's a leader, so we're all going to get behind our leader and we're going to be ready to go this year.'

Footballguys view: We're excited to see what Rodgers and company look like under new head coach Matt LaFluer. If healthy, Jones could benefit greatly as the Packers lead back. His all-purpose ability should come in handy on passing downs.

  Packers | Green Bay won't drastically change offense    Tue Feb 19, 03:00 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be asked to run a dramatically different offense than the one he has operated for most of his career, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.'When you take a guy like Aaron Rodgers, who is a very good football player, I mean, he's kind of one of those guys where you can kind of pretty much do a lot of everything. I think a lot of it is going to carry over. I think some of the language will be different but it's going to be a lot of the same premises for him,' Hackett told PackersNews.com.

Footballguys view: The offense is going to be tailor-made for what Rodgers likes and wants to do. Rodgers (knee, concussion) said he will be ready for the offseason program which is great news since he'll be getting used to the new coaching staff.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers avoids knee surgery    Mon Feb 4, 01:12 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is expected to be able to fully participate in the team's offseason program and will not require surgery on the left knee that hindered him throughout various points of the 2018 season.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran quarterback here. The knee sprain was suffered in Week 1 and Rodgers wasn't himself for most of the 2018 season. Now that he's avoided surgery, Rodgers should be on track to participate in the offseason program. Not only is this great news for Rodgers, but it's also great news for new Packers head coach Matt LaFleur.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers will play    Wed Dec 19, 02:54 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (groin) will take the field this week despite speculation that he would be shut down while he deals with a groin injury.

Footballguys view: The Packers aren't going to the postseason but Rodgers wants to get out there. Fantasy GMs may be hesitant starting him this week due to the groin injury but if he's out there then he's a QB1.
