Aaron Rodgers saw limited action against Cleveland, but he still managed to shine. We break down the fantasy implications.

In the Packers second preseason game of 2012, Aaron Rodgers finished 6 of 11 for 59 yards and one touchdown. He also ran the ball twice for another 24 yards, the majority of that coming on a 21-yard scramble.

Analysis: It was business as usual for the All-Pro quarterback. Rodgers hit a few different receivers while during his limited action. His lone touchdown involved a familiar face from 2011. Jordy Nelson went up and made the nice grab over Browns cornerback Joe Haden, leaving the Twitter raving over his ability. This combo should be deadly again this season.

Rodgers didn't have to worry about getting hit in this one. There were only a few times he was forced out of the pocket, but he proved once again that he can get the job done when he needs to. Fantasy owners should have no problem taking Rodgers in Round 1, or No. 1 overall for that matter.
