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.
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.
