Rodgers is worth drafting late in best ball leagues simply to get the benefit of his likely three starts to begin the season while Doug Martin is suspended. Beyond that, he has Martin injury upside and the chance for a big game/play or two as a change of pace back.
Rodgers took over when Doug Martin went down last year and provided surprising fantasy value. This year, he'll likely get to start the first three games of the season in addition to being Martin's backup when he returns from suspension. It is unclear whether Rodgers would hold up for the long haul under a starter's load, but he is set to get it when the season opens and potentially again if Martin can't stay healthy.

Summary

After minimal impact in Atlanta early in his career and Chicago in 2015, Rodgers landed on his feet with Tampa Bay in 2016. Rodgers logged a career-best 4.3 yards-per-carry and totaled five games of at least 17 touches with Doug Martin and Charles in and out of the lineup with injury. Rodgers' low center of gravity and soft hands fuel his two-way utility as a spot starter if needed with Doug Martin on suspension to start the season and Charles Sims looking lackluster in his stint as the starter a year ago.
