Aaron Rodgers has a lazy Sunday in fantasy football

Andy Lyons

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited, but effective in Week 8. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited by the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8, but still did enough to pull off another win. Rodgers, who typically puts up gaudy numbers, was held to only 186 yards passing and two touchdowns.

Even though it's unusual to see Rodgers throw for less than 200 yards, the important thing is the Packers came away with the victory. Rodgers also didn't cost his team, remaining turnover free against the Jags. Rodgers should be back to his booming stats in no time.

Fantasy Analysis: This was a pretty uncharacteristic game for Rodgers. It would be understandable if fantasy owners were upset, considering Rodgers only produced half of what he's capable of on most NFL Sundays. The reigning league MVP is usually a lock for 300-plus yards and three or more touchdowns.

Rodgers is a must-start every week, and should be expected to produce bigger stats in the immediate future. There will never be a situation where Aaron Rodgers isn't a good fantasy play.
