Aaron Rodgers: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Rodgers says he is not experiencing any lingering issues related to the broken collarbone he suffered in Week 9 of the 2013 season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Packers are as cautious as anyone when it comes to players returning from injury, especially their franchise quarterback, so this report should come as no surprise. Expect Rodgers to be at 100 percent heading into OTAs.
Rodgers completed 17-of-26 passes for 177 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's playoff game against the 49ers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rodgers was under heavy pressure early in the cold playoff game against the 49ers and did not complete a pass in the first quarter. Given the tough conditions, he was able to take control of the offense and move the chains, spreading the ball around on short completions. It was an injury-shortened season for Rodgers that emphasized his importance to the Packers. Though limited to nine games, he still posted a passer rating greater than 100 for the fifth straight season.
Rodgers wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rodgers certainly looked like himself in the Packers' season finale in Chicago, including a 48-yard rainbow toss to Randall Cobb for a touchdown for the game-winning score. Consequently, Rodgers' left collarbone seems to be fully healed, but he'll now contend with a 49ers squad that has defeated him three consecutive times, despite racking up 297.7 passing yards per game with a 7:3 TD:INT ratio during those outings.
Rodgers (collarbone) completed 25-of-39 passes for 318 yards with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Sunday's dramatic 33-28 win at Chicago.

Rodgers (collarbone) is active and will start Sunday against Chicago.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After weeks of speculation, Rodgers will officially make his return, after a seven-game absence. Awaiting him will be a Bears defense that knocked him out of their last matchup, but has been vulnerable against the pass recently. The weather could also become a factor in this game; the forecast calls for cold temperatures with wind gusts as high as 35 miles per hour.
Rodgers (collarbone), who practiced in full Thursday, will start Sunday's season finale in Chicago, Mike Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The news we've been waiting to hear for many weeks has finally come to fruition, after Rodgers received medical clearance to return to the field. He'll face the same defense that knocked him out in Week 9 with a broken left collarbone, only now the NFC North title and a playoff berth is on the line.
Rodgers (collarbone) took all the first-team snaps in group drills during Thursday's practice, Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The media wasn't privy to any team drills, but the initial reading seems to be positive that Rodgers will make a return in Week 17. Coach Mike McCarthy is expected to make a final announcement on the starting quarterback at 1:15 PM CT, so owners still involved in the fantasy playoffs should be aware of Rodgers' availability in the very near future.
Rodgers (collarbone) was a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

No decision has been made on Rodgers' Week 17 availability, as owners will have to wait until Thursday, at the earliest, to learn of his status for the season finale. He intimated Tuesday that a scan had been performed on his left collarbone early in the week, so perhaps the organization would like to see how he reacts a few days removed from the examination. If he fails to receive medical clearance for the eighth consecutive game, Matt Flynn is present to handle QB duties Sunday in Chicago.
Rodgers (collarbone) indicated Tuesday that a decision regarding his status for Sunday's game against the Bears -- a winner-take-all NFC North matchup -- will be made on Thursday, wbay.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rodgers added Tuesday that he's feeling better, while noting that a scan was done on his collarbone in the last 24 hours. We'll update the situation Thursday -- if not sooner -- but at this stage, Rodgers' Week 17 status remains decidedly up in the air, with another Matt Flynn start looming in the event that Rodgers isn't medically cleared in the next couple of days.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Rodgers threw for an impressive 4,295 yards in 2012, but there's actually room for improvement as he recorded the lowest YPA (7.8) since he became a starter in 2008. The quarterback started the season with an average of only 251 yards and one passing touchdown per game over the Packers' first three contests. Don't expect that to happen again. Further, there's a good chance Rodgers' touchdown total will increase as well. He threw 39 touchdowns in 2012 but actually had fewer attempts inside the opponent's 10-yard line than the other top scorers – Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Cam Newton and Matt Ryan – and by a wide margin. Brees alone had nearly twice as many passes (55) as Rodgers (29) in that area. At worst, you can probably expect Rodgers' 7.1 percent touchdown rate – down from 9.0 percent in 2011 – to remain steady in 2013. And don't forget about what the Packers quarterback can give you on the ground. Rodgers has never failed to rush for 200 yards in a season, and he's averaged nearly four rushing touchdowns per year since he became a starter. Rodgers snuck into the end zone on the ground just twice last season, so there's yet another area where the superstar's stats could "regress" in a good way.

2012

Rodgers was beyond brilliant in 2011, completing 68.3 percent of his passes while averaging 9.2 yards per attempt, resulting in 4,643 yards in just 15 games. What’s even more impressive is that Rodgers threw 45 touchdowns on just 502 passes. That means nine percent of his passes – nearly one in 10 – went for a touchdown. He did all this while throwing just six interceptions. He added 257 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, too. With the exception of a puzzling loss to the Chiefs in Week 15, Rodgers was unstoppable perhaps to an extent that hasn’t really been seen before – he scored at least two touchdowns in every game, three or more in 10 games, and for all but that one week against the Chiefs, defenses looked entirely helpless against him. Even in his one “bad” game he still scored 22 points in standard leagues. His top pass catchers from a year ago are all back, with wideouts Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson headlining the list after combining for 24 touchdowns in 2011.

2011

Coming off an impressive Super Bowl campaign, Rodgers is arguably the league’s top quarterback for both fantasy and real-life purposes. He isn’t granted as many pass attempts – his 475 in 15 games ranked 14th – as players like Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, but he closes that gap with efficiency (8.26 YPA, 2nd) and his ability to move the ball on the ground. Rodgers can be expected to hover around 300 yards and four touchdowns as a runner, while Brees and Manning aren’t even guaranteed to post positive yardage in that regard. Rodgers might need to be a bit more cautious as a runner in 2011 after suffering two concussions last year, but that he’s only missed one game in three years probably indicates last year’s concussions were bad luck more than anything in Rodgers’ control. Moreover, Rodgers has gotten better in each of the last two seasons, and he improved as last season progressed, totaling 1,911 yards, 16 touchdowns and two interceptions through the air while completing 71.4 percent of his passes and averaging 9.3 yards per pass attempt over the final seven games. While Rodgers had a deep wide receiver corps last season, he had to do without star tight end Jermichael Finley for most of the year. If Finley, who's expected back in time for training camp, can stay healthy, we might see Rodgers establish a new ceiling.

2010

Rodgers is an incredible fantasy weapon boosted significantly by his consistent running – nine scores in two seasons and 316 rushing yards in 2009. We hate his sack number, 50 in 2009. But the rate improved steadily in the second half of the season, and the Packers improved their offensive line adding OT Bryan Bulaga in the first round of the draft. So the injury risk is less significant than it appeared to be last October. That’s the only possible question mark anyone could have regarding Rodgers, who looks to be the perfect player. Rodgers is very consistent and also very explosive. His rushing ability coupled with his passing proclivity makes Rodgers the man most likely to carry your team from this position. Rodgers’ receivers are also stronger than ever. The cold weather in Green Bay can be unfriendly to the pass, but Rodgers gets big scheduling breaks up until Week 15 and that alone is the reason he’s not our No. 1 QB, though you can certainly make a case. Remember, you need to make the playoffs before you worry about playoff matchups, and getting Rodgers puts you in good stead for that.

2009

He’s going to be on a lot of championship rosters in 2009, should he slip past the fourth round. Most attractive are the 536 attempts. Although the Packers have sought to upgrade the defense, we’re not too optimistic. Expect about 550 again in ’09, as any gains on defense will probably be balanced by increased confidence from the coaching staff in Rodgers, now in his second full year as starter. His big-armed reputation isn’t evidenced in our FAS throws (11-to-20 yards from scrimmage), just a 84.2 rating on 107 tosses and just 20 percent of his attempts (below league average). Of bigger concern for Rodgers rooters is the status of his O-Line. LT Chad Clifton allowed 7.5 sacks last year and is coming off knee surgery, and fellow tackle Mark Tauscher tore his ACL in December and might not be re-signed. OT/G T.J. Lang (Eastern Michigan) was a good middle-round value, but probably needs seasoning. The receivers are good enough, with Greg Jennings a borderline Pro Bowl-type and Donald Driver a declining but still solid chain-mover. No. 3 WR Jordy Nelson has reliable hands but no deep speed. But Rodgers had a 7.5 YPA as a first-year starter, and that’s more likely to get better than worse. And 7.5-plus gets you 25-plus TD passes 80 percent of the time (assuming a healthy season). And if he progresses to 8.0, which is not crazy speculation at all given his place in the development curve, then you’re talking 30-plus TD passes as chalk.

2008

Brett Favre went out with a bang, putting up a season that defied all expectations in light of his recent trends. Rodgers looked so good in a very high-profile game in Dallas (when he replaced an injured Favre) that he's likely going to be overdrafted everywhere. Caution is the best approach here, as he's thown 59 passes in his career. General manager Ted Thompson said to read nothing into the selection of Brian Brohm in the second round. But you don’t take QBs in the second round if you think they're just going to be backups. So clearly the team is not sold on Rodgers. Make sure you aren't either, no matter how he plays in those meaningless summer games. The Packers play calling tendencies are great for fantasy QBs, but that's likely to change now that their Hall of Fame quarterback has retired. The Packers have an exciting young runner in Ryan Grant and an interesting backup in former second-round pick Brandon Jackson. Their defense is also stout, and they play in a division where all of the teams likely will struggle to score. So they don’t have to pass the ball often and probably won't.

2007

Rodgers still has the No. 2 spot locked in, but with Brett Favre in the starting spot, Rodgers is not likely to see much time unless the Packers find themselves completely out of the division race. He's only thrown 31 passes in two NFL seasons so far, and it seemed like the Packers were willing to trade him earlier had the right offer come along.

2006

Rodgers was the Packers' first round pick in 2005 and is their future at quarterback, assuming that Brett Favre retires at some point.

2005

Rodgers, the Packers first round pick in 2005, will likely be listed as the second string QB this season, but it will probably be in name only. Don't expect him to see any extended game action for one or two years.
