I may be from Chicago and be a Bears fan, but I appreciate watching greatness. The line on this game has been weird, opening up with the Panthers favored by 1.0, but it's moved to anywhere from Panthers by 3-6 points, so we just went down the middle. It's odd, because the line was after Rodgers was cleared. I think people forgot what he did for not only the offense, but the defense too. There've been just two games in Rodgers' career where he's had to return from injury (and one was a collarbone injury), and in those games, he threw for 404 yards and four touchdowns, and then 318 yards and two touchdowns. It's fair to say that he's pretty good coming off injury. Reports out of practice were that he's looked as good as ever for the last two weeks, but that he needed to be cleared for contact. The Panthers were once a good defense, but they've struggled as of late. Since Week 9, they've played five games, allowing 10 passing touchdowns to the combination of Case Keenum, Drew Brees, Josh McCown, Jay Cutler, and Matt Ryan. We also saw Ryan and McCown surpass 300 yards through the air. When you look at the quarterbacks they've slowed down this year, you don't want to put Rodgers anywhere near them. The only quarterbacks to finish with less than 14.4 fantasy points against them were Brian Hoyer, Tyrod Taylor, Mitch Trubisky, and Jameis Winston. Rodgers must be back in fantasy lineups this week.

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.
