Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Coming off of a game where he threw the ball all over the Bears' vaunted defense, Rodgers is a top-5 play yet again in this matchup. The Eagles typically shut down opposing QBs, but Rodgers is playing too well to not have him in your starting lineup this week.Ryan didn't have the best fantasy performance in week 12, but it was enough to lead his team to a resounding victory. In this matchup, Ryan's difficult to fully trust after what we saw last week in a better matchup. Ryan should be viewed as a mid-range QB2 this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If Rodgers has proved anything over the last month, it's that he's matchup-proof. Despite playing against the 49ers, Colts, and Bears in three of his last four games, Rodgers has thrown for three-plus touchdowns in each of those games. He's finished with 21.74 or more fantasy points in 9-of-11 games, including each of his last six games. If you were to remove rushing totals from all quarterbacks and just look at what they've done through the air, Rodgers has averaged a ridiculous 0.661 fantasy points per pass attempt, while there's just one other quarterback (Russell Wilson) who's averaged over 0.609 points per throw. If you're looking for any rushing totals, the Eagles would be the team he might get some against, as they've allowed 334 yards on the ground to quarterbacks, which ranks as the most in the league. They have been a tough matchup for quarterbacks overall this year, allowing the 12th-fewest points per game against them, and if you were to remove those rushing totals, they've allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points through the air. It helps that they've generated a sack on 9.1 percent of dropbacks, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the NFL. Despite that, they've recorded a league-low three interceptions this year. The worrisome part for Rodgers is that teams have chosen to throw the ball just 53.4 percent of the time against the Eagles due to great field position and lack of competition in general. None of that has mattered to Rodgers though 12 weeks, so why should it now? Keep him rolling as a QB1.The trend continued for Ryan without Julio Jones in the lineup. The status of Jones is huge if you're considering Ryan. On top of those concerns, the Saints are suddenly one of the best defenses in the NFL and have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per game overall to their opponents. They've brought the pressure and have generated a sack on 8.3 percent of opponent dropbacks, which ranks as the fourth-highest mark in football. They've now held Tom Brady, Nick Mullens, Ryan, and well, Kendall Hinton to fewer than 11 fantasy points in each of their last four games. This is the defense we thought they'd be when the season started. They were also very good when the Falcons played them in Week 13 last year when Ryan threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns, though it did take him 50 attempts to get there. As crazy as it sounds, the Saints haven't allowed more than 283 passing yards in any of their 11 games this year, as it was touchdowns carrying quarterbacks. But again, since Week 5, they've allowed just five passing touchdowns in six games. Even if Jones returns this week, Ryan probably belongs in the middling QB2 territory. If he doesn't play, Ryan may not return top-20 value.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Eagles allow the fourth fewest points to fantasy QBs, but Aaron Rodgers is a matchup proof QB1 at home.
