Aaron Rodgers Puts In Uncharacteristic Performance Against Chicago

Thursday night was not a typical game for Aaron Rodgers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of 32 passes for 219 yards, one touchdown and one interception Thursday night against the Bears. While it was no where near the horrendous level of a performance that was Jay Cutler's, this outing wasn't quite what fantasy owners typically expect from Rodgers.

Fantasy Impact: There likely won't be many matchups won this week due to Rodgers arm, which is something you will rarely here. Green Bay was set on controlling the clock and managing the run game. Rodgers didn't look in sync at times with his offense, but his poor pass protection and constant drops from receivers likely threw off whatever momentum he had going. He was sacked five times, a threatening number to any fantasy owner. Look for him to recover well against the Seahawks next week.
