Packers RB Aaron Jones is set to count $20 million against the salary cap in 2023. But Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said he expects the veteran to return on a restructured deal. “Yeah, certainly, we expect to have him back,” Gutekunst recently told the media. “Obviously, he’s a dynamic player. It’s amazing. For a guy his size, to bring it every day, he rarely misses a practice, rarely misses a rep. The way he leads that football team, his consistency is amazing.” Indeed, Jones played all 17 games in 2023, setting career highs in rushing yards (1,121) and receptions (59). The 28-year-old’s fantasy ceiling will largely depend on whether Aaron Rodgers returns for another season.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (right thumb, knee) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Week 17 vs. the Vikings. The former MVP hasn't tallied more than 14 fantasy points since Week 11. Rodgers is a high-end QB2 streaming option based on reputation and the fact that the Vikings' defense presents the 6th-best matchup for opposing QBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (right thumb, knee) practiced in a limited capacity on Thursday. The veteran has fought through injury all season, so he'll probably be fine for Week 17 vs. the Vikings. We'll let you know if something changes on tomorrow's practice report.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (right thumb, knee) was a no-go at practice on Wednesday. The former MVP has gutted through injury all season. If something pops up regarding his availability for Week 17 vs. the Vikings, we'll let you know. Check back tomorrow for an update.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for 238 yards and 1 TD on 24-of-38 passing in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. His 13.3 fantasy points (by ESPN scoring) is good for 13th among QBs on the week, at least, with 3 games left to go. Rodgers hit TE Marcedes Lewis for his only score and threw 1 INT. Rodgers figures to land in mid-QB2 range for a Week 17 matchup with the Vikings. Minnesota sits top-10 as a QB-scoring matchup but hasn't been as friendly to the position as the Dolphins have. WR Allen Lazard led the Packers with 11 targets at Miami, catching 5 for 61 yards. WR Christian Watson caught a team-high 6 passes before leaving with a hip injury.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of 30 attempts for 229 yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Sunday night's win vs. the Rams. Week 15 marks the 3rd consecutive game in which the former MVP didn't clear 15 points in 4-point per passing touchdowns leagues. Fantasy managers advancing in the playoffs can feel better about Rodgers' odds in next week's matchup against a Dolphins defense that ranks 4th-easiest in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. Consider Rodgers a streaming option in 1QB leagues and a quality QB2 in superflex formats.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed just 18 of 31 passes for 182 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's win over a bad Bears' defense. Rodgers' lone score went to WR Christian Watson from 14 yards out late in the 1st half. Green Bay's other 2 TDs came on the ground, from Watson and RB AJ Dillon. Rodgers didn't take a sack, as he played through a significant rib contusion. He'll now get the Week 14 to rest up ahead of a Week 15 matchup with the Rams, who hope to get Aaron Donald back for the game.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will be playing through a "painful" rib contusion today against the Bears. The matchup is terrific and puts Rodgers in starter consideration for fantasy football lineups. Chicago allowed Jets QB Mike White 315 yards and 3 TDs (no INTs, 1 sack) on 78.6% completions just last week. But keep the risk of Rodgers' injury in mind as you weigh him against other options near him in our Week 13 fantasy football rankings.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (rib, thumb) is not listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and will start this weekend’s game vs. the Bears. Rodgers carries elevated risk playing through these injuries, but there’s certainly upside against 1 of the league’s worst defenses.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (rib, thumb) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's expected to play vs. the Bears this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that he expects QB Aaron Rodgers (rib, thumb) to play vs. the Bears this weekend. Rodgers said Tuesday that he expects to be out there ... so we're expecting him to be out there. The injuries will add some risk to his Week 13 fantasy profile, but Rodgers will certainly carry QB1 upside against a Chicago defense that can't stop anything.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (rib, thumb) did not practice on Wednesday. Rodgers has been sitting out Wednesdays since suffering that thumb injury, so this doesn't tell us much about his status for this weekend's game vs. the Bears. Rodgers said Tuesday that he plans on playing in that one. We'll see if he practices on Thursday.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said on the Pat McAfree Show on Tuesday that he got "good news" with the scans on his ribs and plans on playing vs. the Bears this weekend. "I might miss practice Wednesday but that's been the standard for the last six, seven weeks [and] go to one of my favorite places to play, Chicago, get a big win, get into the bye week and get healthy," Rodgers added. We'll keep you updated on his practice participation throughout the week.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur didn't have an update on QB Aaron Rodgers' injury during his Monday press conference but did say that Rodgers was "feeling better" than he did on Sunday night. "I think we’ll know more in the next couple days," LaFleur added. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Rodgers will start vs. the Bears this weekend if he's able.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is set for further testing on the rib injury he suffered in Sunday night's loss to the Eagles. It was originally announced as an oblique injury, but Rodgers said afterward that it's his ribs. X-rays were inconclusive for a fracture, but a Monday MRI and CT scan will provide a better look at the damage. Rodgers said that he'll be out there for Week 13 if those tests come back clean. If not, Green Bay will turn to QB Jordan Love, who played well in relief of Rodgers in Philadelphia.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers left Sunday night's game in the 3rd quarter with an oblique injury and is questionable to return.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been playing through a broken right thumb suffered in Week 5, he told reporters Wednesday. We've known that Rodgers had a thumb injury but didn't know the extent until now. Rodgers downplayed the issue and said the thumb is "feeling better this week," but it's likely played a part in his underwhelming season.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Lions, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Doubs is undergoing further testing to get a better idea of how long he'll be out, but Rapoport notes that these tend to be 4-6 week injuries. We're unlikely to see Doubs again until December, so he can be dropped in standard-sized fantasy leagues. Allen Lazard is locked in as Green Bay's #1 WR going forward.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed just 53.5% of his passes and tossed 3 INTs (2 in the red zone) in Sunday's loss at Detroit. He wound up compiling 291 yards on 23-of-43 passing, with 1 TD -- adding 40 rushing yards to salvage a decent fantasy day. But Rodgers struggled in what should have been an easy matchup. That bodes ill for a Week 10 clash with Dallas, which sports a much tougher pass D. WR Allen Lazard drew 10 targets, catching 4 for 87 yards and a TD. No other Packer drew more than 5 looks. TE Josiah Deguara led the team in receptions, catching all 5 of his looks for 41 yards. TE Robert Tonyan caught 3 balls for 29 yards among 4 targets. No other Packer caught more than 2 passes.
