Fantasy Impact: According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, Rodgers already looks like "he is in mid-season form." He marched down the field on his first drive and capped it off with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb. His second drive almost ended in another touchdown, this time to Jordy Nelson, but was called back on a penalty. Aaron Rodgers looks like he will be leading one of the most productive offenses in the league this season and seems to be a lock as one of the top three fantasy quarterbacks.

"Really I'm more interested in what happens on the other side of his performance, particularly in the passing game," coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday. "But Aaron, he needs to get out there and play just like we do every year." The plan calls for Rodgers to get the most playing time in the second and third preseason games, though with relatively limited snaps. (Source: Associated Press (Madison.com))

Fantasy Impact: The battle behind Rodgers for the QB2 spot is where most will cast their gaze, as Scott Tolzien battles Matt Flynn. However, this will be the first live, game action for Rodgers and new Packers' center J.C. Tretter. They've been building chemistry during the offseason, but it will be interesting for fantasy owners to keep an eye on how that translates to the field with an actual opponent. Though, Rodgers has proven his ability to excel with any center over the years.

"As good as he already is, you think it's kind of hard for him to get better," Cobb told USA TODAY Sports. "But with the way he prepared himself this off-season physically, I think his mental state is in a different world, in a different realm right now, and he's been killing it so far in training camp."

Fantasy Impact: Aaron Rodgers is already atop many draft boards, checking in as the #1 QB quite often. So news that he is getting better should quell any doubters that believe the 30 year-old might be rusty coming off an injury plagued season. The offense outside of Rodgers has improved with a powerful running game, loads of talent at WR and TE, and a much improved O-Line. But even if they aren't ready, Aaron is. "I feel great," Rodgers said. "I paid a lot of attention to my body and nutrition, yoga, flexibility and stuff this off-season in hopes of this being the halfway point of my career — playing nine (seasons) and trying to get nine more."

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers look to speed things up a bit this year. The goal has been set for the offense to run 75 plays per game. Last season they averaged 67 per game. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: We are looking at approximately 27 additional passing yards per game from Rodgers, granted the offense runs 75 plays. For a QB who averaged 281 Y/G last season, an uptick from 281 to 308 yards may be the difference between a loss or a win for your team.

Last year's broken left collarbone isn't a factor heading into 2014.
Fantasy Team Advice | Aug 21st
Plenty to love about Aaron Rodgers and the Packers this season. They feature elite options at QB, RB and WR, and plan to play as fast as any team in the league. Yep.. We are targeting the younger and more elusive Rodgers AHEAD of Peyton Manning in 2014

Of the "Big Three" QBs, he's the only one in his prime.
Legion Report | Aug 21st
Rodgers will enter 2014 completely recovered from a broken collarbone and a healthy WR duo in Jordy Nelson (contract year) and Randall Cobb (contract year - fully recovered). Jarrett Boykin, 6’2 – 220 will replace James Jones as the WR3. The Packers want to run 75 plays per game this season (Denver ran a league leading 72.1 in 2013) which isn’t very realistic, however it suggests the type of Tempo and Offense the Packers want in 2014. Rodgers is elite and will continue to dominate in 2014. This is a no-brainer here. Drafting Rodgers is a worry-free position week-after-week and one that fantasy owners will reap rewards with. Oh, by the way, their schedule is fairly easy, especially taking on ATL, @BUF, @TB in the Fantasy Playoffs.

Health has been Rodgers' problem of late, his and his receivers. If Cobb, Nelson and Boykin were to stay healthy all season his upside is way upside.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 20th
Rodgers is safe to put up 4,000+ yards and 30+ TDs. Nothing wrong with taking a safe QB.
Breaking Football | Aug 20th
A-Rod is without a doubt a top-three fantasy passer. He just needs to not bust his collarbone up again.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 20th
The top-tier for fantasy football quarterbacks is a three-headed monster that includes Rodgers along with Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Due to health factors and inconsistency at times, Rodgers still falls short compared to the other two heading into 2014, but has the talent to rank as #1 when all is said and done.
Fantasy Football Empire | Aug 20th
First time in 6 years that Rodgers did not have at least 2+ rushing TDs. No rushing TDs in 2013. Look for Rodgers to return to rushing for 2-5 rushing TDs in 2014. Played in only 9 games last year due to a left collarbone injury. Took up yoga in the off season and lost 11 pounds. Look for him to bounce back, and if he can stay healthy he could end up as the #1 fantasy QB this season.

Has finished top 2 in fantasy at QB 5 times, and GB planning to push tempo more than ever in '14
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 19th
Rodgers was the 22nd ranked fantasy quarterback, thanks to playing only half of a season. Reports are that he is in terrific shape and the Packers want to play a fast paced offense that runs 75 plays per game. That should help Rodgers and RB Eddie Lacy both have monster seasons.

If you end up with the 5th-9th pick in your draft, you’re probably considering drafting a quarterback in the first round. While you may try to hold out and draft a QB later, opting instead for a stud workhorse running back which seem to be becoming more and more of a novelty in today’s NFL, grabbing one of the top QBs could be even more important. Unless you’re some diehard ...
