Aaron Rodgers injury update: Fantasy owners will have to wait, Scott Tolzien to start

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Aaron Rodgers is still out with a shoulder injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will not play Week 11 against the New York Giants. He broke his collarbone on Nov. 4 against the Chicago Bears and has not practiced since.

Rodgers is targeting a Week 12 return, which seems optimistic. He was initially expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, and if he can make it back for Week 12, he will have spent just three weeks recovering. There is an outside chance he can return for the Packers' Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy impact: The Packers will start Scott Tolzien, so that's going to hurt a lot of players in the passing game. Jordy Nelson is still a player that cannot be on fantasy benches, but there isn't much upside since the team is expected to hand the ball to Eddie Lacy all game. Jarrett Boykin is coming off a 112-yard performance and is worth a look in PPR leagues, but it might be tough to count on him in standard formats. As for the quarterback position, it's not going to be easy to start Tolzien in almost any situation, so Rodgers' owners have to sit tight.
