That sound you hear is the fantasy community cheering for Rodgers' return from a broken collarbone, just in time for the meat of the fantasy playoffs. There's some risk here, as Rodgers' collarbone isn't 100% healed, but he's looked great in practice and if you've waited this long, it's likely you're ready to start him. The Panthers have been better than average against opposing quarterbacks, but they've struggled a bit lately, and Rodgers has a great recent history against them (averaging more than 300 yards passing and three touchdowns in his last three meetings). It's possible you have a safer or better option than Rodgers, but unless you have a stud, deploy Rodgers as a QB1 this weekend.

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.

Rodgers needs to gain medical clearance in order to play this week, he'll have some rust and Carolina is 8th against fantasy quarterbacks. He should still be a QB1 in his first game back from injury.
