Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a decent day in Sunday's win over the Bears, but his stat line should have been better. Rodgers completed 19 of 31 passes for 252 yards, but a pair of incomplete passes proved more noteworthy. WR Davante Adams dropped 2 throws in the end zone, which would have obviously improved the fantasy lines significantly for both players. As it was, Adams caught just 2 of 6 targets for 25 yards. He finished 3rd on the team in targets and tied for 3rd in receptions. Adams has seen just 6 targets in 4 of his past 5 games (with 7 in the other) and averaged 3 receptions per game over that span. He's an iffy fantasy option for Week 16 against a Vikings defense that held him to a 3-26 line back in Week 2.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He’s not at 100% — a situation complicated by the fact that it’s currently 6 degrees in Chicago. There’s more risk here than usual, but Rodgers has simply been too good to bench at this point of the season.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) will play against the Bears today. "He’ll be watched closely," Rapoport adds. Rodgers obviously isn't at 100% and is at some risk of an in-game aggravation. But the only QBs we'd consider benching him for would be Matt Ryan and Kirk Cousins.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. He didn't practice all week. Rodgers clearly isn't at 100% but is fully expected to play on Sunday. The calf issue adds some risk -- especially with sub-zero temperatures forecasted for Chicago -- but he remains a must start in a tough week at QB.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) admits that he won't be at 100% for this weekend's game against the Bears. "It'll be about pain management on Sunday, but the good thing is I'll be out there," he said. "I'll be out there and ready." Rodgers tweaked that calf on the 3rd play of last week's game but still chucked for 246 yards and 3 TDs. The injury obviously adds some risk to his Week 15 outlook -- especially with a high of -1 degrees currently forecasted for Chicago on Sunday -- but Rodgers remains a solid QB1.
