Aaron Rodgers named NFC Offensive Player of the Week following monster fantasy performance

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Aaron Rodgers was named the NFC Offensive Players of the Week on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday after throwing for 338 yards and six touchdowns in last weekend's victory over the previously undefeated Houston Texans.

Green Bay's offense was ranked in the bottom half of the league heading into the game and the Packers were coming off a loss in which they'd blown a 21-3 lead. Jordy Nelson caught three touchdown passes and James Jones had two against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact: This is what fantasy owners were counting on when they drafted Rodgers. Green Bay's offense had looked nothing like it did in 2011 while racking up a 15-1 record, and some fantasy owners were wondering if they should trade Rodgers in an effort to shake things up.

His effort in Week 6 should keep things in perspective for those Rodgers owners: If you have him, you start him.
