Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs CIN (5 / 23 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Rodgers began the game with a 3rd and 2 swing pass to the left flat where he tried to make too many moves one-on-one and got stuffed short of the first down. Fortunately, a defensive holding call bailed out Rodgers' immature decision making. This was his only target of the game. The rest of Rodgers' workload included a three-yard gain of right guard in the second series; a nice cut to sidestep penetration in the hole on the following play for nine yards; and then a few more runs for a total of 18 yards. Rodgers hit the holes well, but one has to wonder why Steven Jackson didn't earn these carries on interior plays because he demonstrated more power and burst.

2014 Week 3 vs TB (5 / 6 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Rodgers remained the second-string back and he continues seeing looks in the red zone from shotgun formations. Atlanta loves to use Rodgers on short perimeter routes, shovel passes, and draws. Unfortunately, Rodgers' usage doesn't dictate that he has fantasy upside as much as it limits Steven Jackson's. Rodgers is essentially in a three-way split with Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith as the secondary runner. Rodgers has the least amount of ability, but the most experience and best role as the red zone option on passing downs.

2014 Week 4 vs MIN (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)

Rodgers's best play was a 2nd and 27 reception to the right flat that he took for 10 yards, but he negated the play after shoving Robert Blanton after the play and was called for a personal foul. Look for Rodgers to continue earning red zone opportunities from likely pass alignments, but the game scripts thus far are limiting Rodgers to no more than 5-7 touches.
