Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 22-of-27 passes for 255 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions and he added six rushing yards.
Huddle Up: Rodgers bounced back for an absolutely atrocious game in Jacksonville against the New Orleans Saints. All is well with Rodgers and the Green Bay offense, and fantasy managers can stop wringing their hands, at least until next week. The Packers' kryptonite, the San Francisco 49ers, pay a visit in Week 3 on Sunday Night Football.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 15-of-28 passes for just 133 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints before being rested in the fourth quarter of the blowout.
Huddle Up: Rodgers looked frustrated at times, he was chucking up deep balls out of desperation and he was shaking his head after the team elected to go for it deep in his own end. It's just one game, but he was yanked early in the fourth quarter in favor of Jordan Love with the game well out of hand. It was a horrible start for Rodgers and the Packers after a tumultuous offseason. The Packers get an extra day to prepare for the Detroit Lions next Monday night in Week 2.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is likely to sit out the entire preseason, according to head coach Matt LaFleur.
Huddle Up: Rodgers is a top-five option at the position in fantasy, and there's no reason to believe, other than an injury, that he won't end up there.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers agreed to terms on a restructured contract with the Packers Thursday, July 29, according to a source. Terms of the reworked deal were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: It seems like Rodgers is entering his final season with the Packers but will be ready for Week 1. He is coming off an outstanding 2020 season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues again this season.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers arrived at training camp Tuesday, July 27.

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and the team are reportedly close to an agreement that would bring him back to Green Bay for at least this season, according to multiple sources via ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Schefter adds that the Packers are offering concessions to bring Rodgers back, which would seem to indicate he will likely be traded after the 2021 season is over. It has always been more likely than not Rodgers was going to play this season, but it was a more of a matter of when he would return to the field and whether or not it would be in Green Bay. Rodgers is a risky fantasy investment given his dissatisfaction, but fantasy managers have to feel a bit better now about all their Green Bay stocks than they did 24 hours ago.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has reportedly indicated to 'people close to him' that he intends to play this season, according to sources via NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Rapoport cautions "many factors are at play" but that "there is a glimmer of optimism." This is obviously not a guarantee he will report to camp on time. It does sound as if he will be ready for the opener, although Rodgers' frustration with the front office isn't going to just go away. As such, fantasy managers should treat this as a day-to-day or week-to-week situation that could go awry at any time. At the end of the day, this is the first good news in a while regarding the situation. As long as Rodgers takes the field in Week 1, the reigning NFL MVP should be treated as a solid fantasy QB1.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wants to be traded or have years taken off of his contract that includes three seasons at $33.5 million per year, according to an NFC personnel executive. 'He wants to get some sort of deal done,' an NFC personnel executive said. 'But, he wants years off his deal, so he can pull a Tom Brady and be the next guy to try to go elsewhere to win a championship.'
Huddle Up: There is hope now that Rodgers will play for the Packers in 2021. Either way the pendulum swings, Rodgers' fantasy value remains a high-end QB1 option in fantasy.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was offered a two-year extension earlier in the offseason that would have tied him to the Packers five more years and made him the highest-paid player in football. Rodgers declined the offer.
Huddle Up: People around him believe this will come to a head sooner than later. Rodgers will be a high-end QB1 option wherever he plays, and it's really hard to see him sitting out at this stage of his career.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he plans to resume working out soon and will take a few weeks to decide on his future.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has indicated he does not want to play for the Packers, but the team is not interested in trading him at this point. Fantasy players will need to see if he reports for the start of training camp. Rodgers is coming off one of his best seasons and would be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he plays.
