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.
Huddle Up: It was a lackluster stat line for Rodgers in his first game in Matt LaFleur's offense, but to be fair, Chicago's defense is expected to be one of the toughest in the NFL again this season. Better days should be ahead for Rodgers and the Green Bay offense.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be allowed to call audibles at the line in his first year under head coach Matt LaFleur. 'We've given him all the freedom,' LaFleur said Monday, Sept. 2. 'So if he sees something, he's got the green light to do whatever he needs to do to get us into a good play. We're not going to take that from him.'
Huddle Up: There was plenty of talk this offseason Rodgers wouldn't be afforded this power, but it seems to have been for naught. He remains one of the top quarterback options in fantasy.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to play Thursday, Aug. 22, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: The Packers don't seem concerned with forcing Rodgers into game action in new head coach Matt LaFleur's offense ahead of Week 1 of the regular season, but it would be nice for fantasy managers to get a better sense of how he works with the receiving corps. Rodgers' draft stock is lower than it has usually been in the past, but he shouldn't slip lower than the fifth quarterback off the board.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (back) was held out of the team's exhibition game against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Aug. 15, due to back tightness, and head coach Matt LaFleur said afterward it's not a 'necessity' to have Rodgers play at all in the preseason. '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.'
Huddle Up: There is much intrigue in seeing Rodgers operate in LaFleur's new offense, but Rodgers will be just fine if he can stay healthy, and in fact is primed for a bounce-back season after hitting a full-season career low with 4.2 touchdown pass percentage last season. He remains a high-level QB1.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (back) will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15, because of back tightness. The team says holding Rodgers out is a precautionary move.
Huddle Up: Rodgers probably is dealing with a minor injury and is in no danger of missing any regular season games. He will be working in a new offensive system this season but will still be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday, Aug. 13, he plans to play his starters for 'a quarter or so' against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 15 in the second preseason. 'It'll be a good test for our first time running this offense in another stadium, on the road, against a really good defense,' QB Aaron Rodgers said after Tuesday's practice.
Huddle Up: The high-profile Packers offense is always flush with fantasy options when healthy so it'll be important to see how the receiving corps works Thursday. Keep a close eye on who is getting the playing time with Rodgers among Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow, Geronimo Allison, Equanimeous St. Brown and J'Mon Moore.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers might sit out the team's Aug. 8 preseason opener, head coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday, July 30, because it will follow several days of joint practices with the Houston Texans. Those practices will allow Rodgers a chance to work against another team while wearing a red no-contact jersey.
Huddle Up: There is much anticipation in seeing Rodgers operate his new offense in a game, but there's a good chance that have to wait until Week 2 of the preseason. In the meantime, he remains an upper-level QB1 in fantasy.

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.
Huddle Up: Rodgers wound up playing through the issue and didn't miss a start, but he was clearly bothered by the injury for the first half of the season and finished with a full-season personal-low 25 TD passes. In any case, Rodgers is due some better health fortune and a return to top-three fantasy QB status is certainly on the table with a new coach/fresh start also looming for the veteran QB this season.
