Aaron Rodgers has big fantasy week despite injuries on offense

Brian Kersey

A-Rodg threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns against the Browns on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

It was business as usual for Aaron Rodgers on Sunday. Despite Randall Cobb being sidelined for at least six weeks with a broken leg, and despite James Jones being ruled out on Sunday, Rodgers found ways to produce. He ended Sunday's win over the Browns with 260 passing yards and three touchdowns. He also added 12 rushing yard to his afternoon. Rodgers was efficient in spreading the ball to receivers Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin. Tight end Jermichael Finley and rookie running back Eddie Lacy also saw their share of targets.

Fantasy impact: If there was any hint of regression felt by Rodgers owners, Sunday's performance should have wiped away any uncertainties. Green Bay has a penchant for calling the next man up and excelling with whatever players they feel can contribute on offense. Regardless of who Rodgers is throwing to, he excels at exploiting defenses by targeting players like Jarrett Boykin when other receivers are commanding heavy coverage. He's also benefited from a strong running game led by rookie Eddie Lacy. Rodgers continues to be an elite fantasy quarterback as he heads into Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings.
