Aaron Rodgers, Packers eying post-draft extension?

Green Bay Packers beat writer Pete Dougherty believes the team will extend QB Aaron Rodgers around the time of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Now that Jimmy Garoppolo, Derek Carr and Matthew Stafford received their long-term deals, only Kirk Cousins remains before it is time to extend Rodgers. And while Cousins is poised to finally get his deal at the start of free agency, the timeline suggests that Rodgers will soon follow. Although a new contract for Rodgers isn't immediately needed -- he has two years remaining on his current deal -- the two sides are reportedly inclined to get this done sooner rather than later. Per Dougherty, the Packers could pursue the same route as they did with extending Rodgers in 2013, which was adding three years and $150 million to his current deal, or ultimately sign him to a three-year fully guaranteed deal, which would be a first in the NFL.

Aaron Rodgers placed on IR

ESPN’s Field Yates is reporting the Green Bay Packers have placed QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) on the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

After aggravating his collarbone injury in Sunday’s Week 15 loss to the Panthers — Green Bay was eliminated from playoff contention as a result — Rodgers was once again placed on the injured reserve list for the second time in 2017, only this time it will be a stint that ends his season. With Brett Hundley back under center, Jordy Nelson’s fantasy value will take a tremendous hit once again. Rodgers will look to resurrect himself as well as the Packers in 2018.

Aaron Rodgers throws three touchdown passes in return from injury

Aaron Rodgers completed 26-of-45 passes for 290 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions and added six rushes for 43 yards in the Packers' 31-24, Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

This was Rodger's first start since Week 6 when he suffered a collarbone injury. He definitely looked rusty as his timing and accuracy were not up to Rodger's usual standards. The veteran QB has a tough matchup in Week 16 against the Vikings but its tough to bench Rodgers in fantasy for his big play capability.

Aaron Rodgers cleared to return

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) announced he's cleared to return to football.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Rodgers was cleared to return to football activities after missing the last seven games with a broken collarbone. Amidst his return, Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Randall Cobb should all see a tremendous and consistent bump in their fantasy production moving forward. He's a QB1 for Sunday's Week 15 matchup against the Panthers.

Aaron Rodgers returns to practice

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returned to practice Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Returning to the practice field for the first time since suffering a broken collarbone against the Vikings earlier in the year, Rodgers could return to in-game action as soon as Week 15. With 21 days to activate him from the short-term injured reserve list, the Packers have a tremendous decision to make if they remain in playoff contention.
