The Packers have hired Matt LaFleur as their new HC. The 39-year-old was a hot name as an OC candidate around this time last year after working under Sean McVay in Los Angeles in 2017. LaFleur's 1 season in Tennessee was underwhelming on paper, with the Titans finishing 25th in total yards and 27th in points. But he was dealt a bad hand at QB between an injured Marcus Mariota and Blaine Gabbert. That likely also played a part in Tennessee being the 2nd run-heaviest offense in the league and 10th slowest in situation-neutral pace. Hopefully LaFleur brings a more aggressive, up-tempo attack to Green Bay. Consider the hire a risk/reward proposition for Aaron Rodgers and Co.

Recent Shark Bites

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers exited in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Lions to be checked for a concussion. We'll update his status when we learn more. QB DeShone Kizer is in for Green Bay.

Update: Rodgers has been diagnosed with a concussion and is done for the day. It's his 3rd documented concussion.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told reporters on Wednesday that he'll play against the Jets this weekend. Green Bay was eliminated from playoff contention last week, and Rodgers injured his groin. But he'll get back out there anyway. "I'm super competitive," Rodgers explained. He'll be a lower-end QB1 for Week 16.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he injured his groin on the final play of the 1st half of Sunday's loss to the Bears. He played the 2nd half but admitted that the groin "bothered [him] a little bit." It sounds like something Rodgers would play through if Green Bay was still in the playoff hunt. But they were officially eliminated with the loss in Chicago. HC Joe Philbin said Monday that he plans on Rodgers playing against the Jets this weekend. We'll see if those plans change.

The Packers have fired HC Mike McCarthy. It ends a 13-year stint in Green Bay. The team has underachieved recently, though -- especially considering they're quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers. Today's home loss to the Cardinals was the nail in the coffin. Joe Philbin will take over the interim HC. The move is unlikely to have a significant fantasy impact.

The forecast for today's Cardinals-Packers game calls for a 100% chance of snow and winds of 20-30 mph. Those are tough conditions for the passing games -- especially the Cardinals, who play their home games indoors. QB Josh Rosen shouldn't have been in your plans anyway, but WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk are shakier plays now. Aaron Rodgers looks like a lower-end QB1 in this spot. RB Aaron Jones and the Packers defense are elite fantasy plays.
