Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Rodgers showed that his blowout loss to Tampa Bay was an aberration with a dismantling of Houston last week. Now, he gets a Minnesota defense that has had trouble stopping opposing offenses all season. Fire up Rodgers as a top-5 option who has overall QB1 upside. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Rodgers is on absolute fire lately and he could go nuclear yet again in this matchup against the Vikings secondary. Plug in Rodgers as a top-5 QB. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He got back on track last week in a plus-matchup against the Texans, racking up 283 yards and four touchdowns on just 34 pass attempts. That's become a trend, as he's now thrown the ball 35 times or less in each of the last five games. It surely helps that Rodgers has thrown a touchdown on 8.2 percent of his attempts. The Vikings were getting hammered with Yannick Ngakoue, so they're not going to get better without him. When it comes to strictly passing, the Vikings have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per actual pass attempt. We watched Rodgers dismantle them for 364 yards and four touchdowns in Week 1, though he did throw the ball 44 times in that game. The Vikings have only faced 35.2 pass attempts per game, yet they've allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to quarterbacks, including three top-seven performances. It's quite ridiculous, but 5-of-6 quarterbacks have averaged at least 8.3 yards per attempt against them. The 6.64 percent touchdown-rate they've allowed ranks as the fifth-highest mark, too. Even if the Packers continue their run-heavy ways, Rodgers should still be able to be efficient enough to be a middling QB1 this week. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Vikings are 25th against fantasy QBs and Rodgers had 30.8 fantasy points against the Vikings in the opener. Rodgers is an elite QB1 at home this week.
