Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 42-24 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday night. The 2011 NFL MVP went 24-for-37 passing for 338 yards, garnering a 133.8 quarterback rating.
Rodgers found six different receivers on the night. Jordy Nelson was by far his favorite target, catching nine passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns. James Jones had two touchdown receptions on the night, and Tom Crabtree had one.
Fantasy Impact: Rodgers finally came through as the top fantasy draft pick he was projected to be before the season. He found time to throw the ball on Sunday, and will likely come out as the highest scoring player in fantasy football this week in a lot of leagues.
Rodgers has now thrown 13 touchdown passes in his last three outings, after throwing just three over his first three games of the season. The Packers appears to be finding their stride on offense even with Greg Jennings on the sideline. Rodgers should be started every week in just about fantasy format.
