Summary

Aaron Rodgers enters his 12th season in Green Bay with two MVP's and a Super Bowl ring to his credit. Despite being decimated by injuries on the offensive side of the ball in 2015, Rodgers led the Packers to a 10-6 record and a NFC wild card berth. By his lofty standards, the 2015 season was not kind to Rodgers though. He threw for 3,821 yards with 31 touchdowns to eight interceptions. The yards and touchdowns were the lowest season total (in seasons where he played 16 games) since 2009, his second year as a starter. His turnovers (16 total, 8 interceptions, 8 fumbles) were the highest total since his first year as a starter in 2008. Rodgers completion percentage and quarterback rating plummeted to (60.7 %) and (92.7), respectively, down from (65.6%) and (112.2) in 2014. His yards per attempt (6.62) was also the lowest of his career. The injury to Jordy Nelson was a death blow, however the Packers also had injuries across the offensive line that contributed to Rodgers taking (46) sacks in 2015, trailing only Blake Bortles (51) among all quarterbacks. With that said, the injuries to his receivers and offensive line played a big part in his statistical decline, yet Rodgers still managed to score the 7th most fantasy points among quarterbacks. Rodgers level of consistency, even when things are falling apart around him, is what makes him a coveted fantasy option. With Jordy Nelson back at full strength, the offensive line healthy and bolstered by 2nd round pick Jason Spriggs, Rodgers looks poised to reclaim his spot among the elite fantasy quarterbacks.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers not expected to play much (Fri Aug 26, 08:04 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be the starting quarterback in the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Friday, Aug. 26, but is not expected to play more than a quarter.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers fine with limited work (Tue Aug 23, 09:56 PM) - Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers expects to play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 26, against the San Francisco 49ers, but how much has not yet been decided. 'Whatever (head coach Mike McCarthy) wants me to do,' Rodgers said. 'We haven't talked about play time yet. I'm not sure how long he wants me to play, but it'll be good to get out there and get some work with the guys.' He doesn't expect to play in the preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs next week.

Our View: We don't need to see a ton of Rodgers. With WR Jordy Nelson healthy (and Mike McCarthy back to calling the plays), expect Rodgers to be his normal high-level QB1 for fantasy owners once again in 2016. Rodgers has a current ADP of QB2 (4.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers may play (Tue Aug 23, 11:16 AM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could play in the third preseason game, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Our View: We don't need to see Rodgers play. It would be nice as the third week of the preseason is the dress rehearsal for the regular season, but it's not necessary because Rodgers has a ton of experience.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson to do work (Sat Aug 20, 02:24 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson (knee) will work one-on-one as much as they can in practice Monday, Aug. 22, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It will be Nelson's first practice of the offseason and he will be limited to individual drills. It is still unclear whether or not Nelson will play this preseason.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers resting again (Thu Aug 18, 06:46 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (rest) won't play in the team's preseason game Thursday, August 18, against the Oakland Raiders.

Our View: No worries here. We should see him in the dress rehearsal for the regular season aka Week 3 of the preseason.
