Aaron Rodgers fails for fantasy owners in Week 3

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers tries to escape pressure from the Cincinnati Bengals defense - Andy Lyons

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 244 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in his Week 3 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers only threw for 244 yards and one touchdown in the Packers' loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. Rodgers also threw two interceptions and was sacked four times. Rodgers has a rookie left tackle protecting his blind side and also lost his two starting running backs in James Starks and Johnathan Franklin in the game. The Packers have a bye week in Week 4 and they need it, with running back Eddie Lacy already sidelined.

Fantasy impact: The Packers are dealing with issues on the offensive line and and injury at the running back position. Rodgers is an elite quarterback and this game shouldn't give fantasy owners cause for concern. The Bengals have a very good defense and the best defensive line in the NFL. Lacy should be back in Week 5 which should help the offense. Rodgers is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league and should rebound in Week 5 when the Packers face the Detroit Lions.
