Aaron Rodgers probable for Week 17, should play for fantasy owners

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is probable for Week 17. We break down the fantasy implications.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is officially listed as probable for Week 17. The Packers will take on the Chicago Bears in a win-and-in scenario for the playoffs. Rodgers is recovering from a broken collarbone and is looking to play his first game in some time.

Rodgers has been practicing for the past couple weeks, but he only recently returned to taking a full load. The veteran quarterback practiced in full on Friday and there have been no setbacks. He should be relatively without rust given that he's been throwing for over two weeks now. The hard part was getting cleared for contact.

The last time Rodgers played was the first meeting between these two teams, in Week 9. He started that game, but suffered the collarbone injury on the first drive when he was sacked by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin.

Fantasy Impact: If you're playing a league that's going into Week 17 and you have Rodgers, then you're in luck. These two teams are battling for the NFC North, and all reports suggest Rodgers is ready to go and that he's been looking solid in practice. Start him with confidence and hope those reports are accurate.
