Rodgers finished 22 for 28 for 302 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: After one of the worst games of his career in Week 3, Aaron Rodgers bounced back in a big way for fantasy owners in Week 4. The QB topped 300 yards and through a pair of touchdowns each to Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. The Bears defense seemed helpless to stop the QB as he distributed the ball to five different receivers. This was an encouraging outing for Rodgers and the Packers offense, hopefully a sign of things to come. They get the Vikings in Week 5.

Aaron Rodgers completed 16-of-27 passes for 162 yards with one touchdown and zero interceptions.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers looked off at times and missed a few throws that he usually makes. The game-plan seemed to be to establish the run early to neutralize the pass rush, but that never materialized. With Detroit's strong front-seven, and a lack of Packers' running game, the Lions were able to pin their ears back and bring the pressure. Rodgers' protection struggled at times to keep him upright, but Rodgers has been known to overcome that in the past. Still, there is no reason to worry here, Rodgers remains an elite QB1 despite the two weak performances this year. Rodgers should have a great opportunity to bounce back against Chicago in Week 4.

Rodgers faces the Detroit Lions this weekend, a team which is good for 7th-best in the NFL in fantasy points against QB's. Per fftoolbox.com, Rodgers has averaged 19 fantasy points against the Lions through 10 matchups. (Source: Fantasy Football Maniax)

Fantasy Impact: Despite the average of 19 fantasy points against the Lions, I am not worried about Rodgers this week. In fact, I ranked him as my #1 QB this week. Detroit has been terrific against the run thus far, so I expect Rodgers to have a field day out there in what will most likely be a shootout between the two teams.

Aaron Rodgers rallied the Packers from an 18-point deficit to defeat the Jets on Sunday. Rodgers completed 25-42 passes for 346 yards and 3 td's. He did not throw an interception. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: You should be starting Rodgers every week if you have him, with the exception of his bye week. After a sluggish start on the very first drive, Rodgers showed us why he is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Start him with confidence.

Aaron Rodgers was a shell of himself on Thursday night, however it came at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks defense. Rodgers clearly went out of his way to avoid throwing the ball anywhere near Richard Sherman. Rodgers was 14-15 on passes thrown 10 yards or fewer downfield in the 1st half, but he went 0-3 on passes longer than 10 yards.

Fantasy Impact: There shouldn't be concern about Aaron Rodgers, he had a bad game against a terrific team. However, there should be some worry about the offensive line situation in Green Bay. Bryan Bulaga suffered a knee sprain after missing all of last season with a torn ACL, J.C. Tretter is injured as well, it's not pretty. If Green Bay can't protect Rodgers, he won't be very productive. Here's to hoping Green Bay makes an adjustment for next week against the Jets.

Aaron Rodgers could be in for a tough night, facing what could be the top defense in the NFL. The QB is projected to throw for 263 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT. (Source: FantasyPros)

Fantasy Impact: Aaron Rodgers is one of the elite level QBs in the league and was drafted as such. Despite the unfavorable matchup, Rodgers should remain in your starting lineup every week. Expectations may be modest against Richard Sherman & Co., but continue to roll with Rodgers in Week One.

Aaron Rodgers finished the pre-season with 267 passing yards, 3 TD's, and no INT's.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers is certainly playing with a chip on his shoulder. Even with a Super Bowl Ring, he still feels he has something to prove. Rodgers completed 60.6% of his passes during the pre-season and looks to be a top candidate for MVP.

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.

It has been a back-and-forth season for the Packers gunslinger as Rodgers has had a poor week (SEA) - great week (NYJ) - poor week (DET) - great week (CHI) to start 2014. Being that it is a early-week game, Rodgers won't be available to those that play at the DraftKings, but facing the Vikings should allow him to break the cycle and have back-to-back great weeks making many fantasy owners proud.

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 ...
