Packers QB Aaron Rodgers entered the 4th quarter with just 74 passing yards in Sunday night's loss to the Bills, but added 129 and a TD to his totals in that quarter alone. Green Bay went run-heavy through most of the game, falling behind by 17. Rodgers then led that 4th-quarter scoring drive that ended with a 37-yard TD to rookie WR Samari Toure. Rodgers found rookie WR Romeo Doubs for an impressive catch in the end zone earlier in the game. TE Robert Tonyan led the Packers with 5 catches, totaling 35 yards. Green Bay gets a much more favorable matchup at Detroit in Week 9.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers managed only 194 yards on 23-of-35 passing in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. He found RB Aaron Jones for the team's only 2 offensive TDs. WR Allen Lazard was the only other Packer to catch more than 3 passes, before leaving with a shoulder injury. TE Robert Tonyan contributed 3-32 receiving on 4 targets. WR Sammy Watkins returned from IR (hamstring) to catch 2 passes for 36 yards among 4 targets. Rookie Romeo Doubs went catchless on 4 targets. Doubs finished as the clear playing-time leader, with Lazard leaving early and the team missing WRs Randall Cobb and Christian Watson. No member of this pass offense looks attractive for a Week 8 visit to Buffalo.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He was out on Wednesday, a full-go on Thursday and then limited on Friday. That’s a bit different than last week, when he went no practice, full, full. Rodgers will start Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders, but it’s possible that the thumb is an issue.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll play vs. the Commanders this weekend, but it's unclear if that thumb will be an issue. He completed just 63% of his passes for 6.0 yards per attempt vs. the Jets last week.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this issue last week but managed just 6.0 yards per attempt and 1 TD against the Jets. It looks like the thumb might still be an issue vs. the Commanders this weekend.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers struggled mightily in Week 6, posting 246 yards and 1 TD on 41 attempts. He tied a season-high with 4 sacks against a Jets team that entered with only 10 in 5 games. After the loss, Rodgers shared a desire to simplify the offense. Something has to change, as he enters Week 7 as the QB18. The Washington matchup is a positive one, but it's tough to put QB1-level faith in Rodgers right now.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was held out on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. We’re not expecting the right thumb to be an issue vs. the Jets this weekend.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (thumb) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He had a wrap on that throwing thumb, but there's been nothing to suggest at this point that it'll be an issue vs. the Jets this weekend. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers did not practice on Wednesday due to a thumb injury. “We don't have much concern as far as gameday," HC Matt LaFleur said. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but it sounds like Rodgers will be available for this weekend's game vs. the Jets.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 27 of 35 passes for 255 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT in Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay. The pick marked Rodgers’ first since Week 10 of last season. He was on-point otherwise, despite playing with a shorthanded WR corps. He hit Romeo Doubs and Allen Lazard for quick-strike scores near the goal line on a day that produced only 2.8 yards per carry. Entering Monday Night Football, Rodgers is just the QB23 in fantasy scoring. Next up is a home date with the Patriots.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wasn’t asked to do much in Sunday’s win over Chicago, posting 234 yards and 2 scores on 25 attempts. The Bears helped the low volume by scoring only 10 points. Green Bay also had the run game working beautifully, especially with Aaron Jones. Rodgers’ scores went to Jones and Allen Lazard, who made his season debut following an ankle injury. Key RT Elgton Jenkins made his debut in Week 2 as well, although veteran LT David Bakhtiari remained out. Strong O-line play is critical for Rodgers, whose receiving corps lacks a true go-to target. The 38-year-old took 3 sacks against Chicago.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur announced Monday that QB Jordan Love will start the preseason opener. There's obviously nothing to read into this from a roles standpoint, as Aaron Rodgers is locked in for as long as he wants to be. According to The Athletic, LaFleur said he'll decide after the team's 2nd preseason contest whether Rodgers will play at all in the exhibitions. Don't be surprised if we get extended playing time from Love, who has plenty to prove and might even get showcased for potential trades. He's worth keeping in mind if you're playing preseason DFS.

Matt Schneidman of The Athletic believes WR Allen Lazard will lead the Packers in receptions. Schneidman cites Lazard’s “sturdy hands” and a budding rapport with Aaron Rodgers. The losses of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling took away 224 targets, so there’s no doubting the opportunity in front of Lazard. New arrivals Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Sammy Watkins don't exactly supply tough target competition. Our current projections agree with Schneidman’s assessment.

Speaking at minicamp, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he'll “definitely" finish his career in Green Bay. We’d give him some leeway to change his mind. But after signing an extension in March, the 38-year-old is signed through the 2024 season.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers gave his thoughts on retirement on Wednesday night. “I think about it all the time,” he said. “When you commit, you’re 100 percent. But the older you get, the interests change, and the grind, I think, wears on you a little more.” Rodgers later said that he could “definitely see the end coming” — hardly a surprise, as he’ll turn 39 in December. Of course, Rodgers has already toyed with the thought of retirement. However, he’s currently signed through the 2024 season.

The Packers traded up to select North Dakota State WR Christian Watson with the 34th overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. Watson is a truly freaky athlete. The 6’4, 208-pounder registered a 4.36-second 40-time and a 38.5-inch vertical at the Combine to earn a 100th percentile Relative Athletic Score. That obviously gives Watson a lofty fantasy ceiling. But the floor is low. Watson is more athlete than WR right now. He easily won with his size and speed against FCS defenses. But he’s a raw and inexperienced route runner, isn’t as dominant in contested situations as you’d expect and dropped 13% of his catchable targets over the past 3 seasons. Watson is also an older rookie, turning 23 in May. He has plenty of opportunity to earn playing time amid a Green Bay WR corps of Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers. We’ll see if Watson is ready.
