Aaron Rodgers fantasy update: Packers offense struggling at home vs. Jaguars

After two impressive weeks, the Green Bay Packers offense and quarterback Aaron Rodgers are struggling at home against the lowly Jaguars. Rodgers lit up the Rams and Texans the past two weeks, and it was expected that he would keep it humming against the Jags, but so far he's just 11 of 20 for 102 yards. The Packers are barely holding on against Jacksonville, leading 14-12 as the game moves though the third quarter.

Among Rodgers 11 completions is a touchdown pass, a five-yard strike to Randall Cobb. Rodgers and Cobb are establishing quite the connection this season, as the two hooked up twice last week to seal a win in St. Louis. But that's been the lone highlight on offense for Green Bay so far, with the other touchdown coming on a special teams blocked punt.

There's not much happening on the ground for the Packers offense either, with Alex Green carrying the ball 14 times for just 35 yards. The Packers will likely need to go to the air and rely on their MVP quarterback to extend an uncomfortable two-point second-half lead.
