Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdowns to one interception during Sunday's game between the Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

Aaron Rodgers went 31-for-41 passing for 319 yards, four touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's game between the Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints. Rodgers found Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson and James Jones twice for his four scores on the day. Sunday was his first game with two-plus touchdowns and a passer rating over 100 this season.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers had been relatively mediocre up until Sunday, spreading worry among fantasy owners who had drafted the quarterback as high as No. 1 overall in fantasy drafts. He paid off in a big way against the Saints, however. Rodgers has hasn't put up huge numbers through the first four weeks of the season, but he has also faced some of the league's toughest defenses. Three of the next four games are against the Indianapolis Colts, St. Louis Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars, providing the reigning MVP plenty of opportunities to light up the boxscore.
