Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee), who suffered a sprained left knee in Week 1 against the Bears, was able to avoid surgery and should be able to fully participate in the team's offseason program. The 35-year-old wore a brace until Nov. 4 and also sustained a concussion in the season finale. "I feel great," Rodgers said on NFL Network. "My body feels really good. Instead of getting surgery postseason, decided to kind of go through a different routine with my knee than I've done in the past, and I'm feeling really, really good. Got a concussion the last game, that's cleared up. I'm feeling really good." It's the same knee Rodgers had ACL repair on in college and he had a cleanup of his left knee a few years ago. 2018 was a down year for Rodgers, mainly because of the injury, but he could easily bounce back as a high-end QB1 in 2019 if he's healthy.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion) left a Week 17 matchup against the Detroit Lions early in the game to be evaluated for a concussion. He was diagnosed with a concussion and did not re-enter the game. Rodgers finished the game with three completions for 26 yards and no touchdowns. With Green Bay missing the playoffs, Rodgers season is now over. Rodgers was projected as the top fantasy quarterback in the preseason this year. Many predicted that he would rebound from a broken collarbone in 2017 and put up elite numbers. However, injuries, inconsistent play, and coaching issues resulted in production that did not meet expectations. Still, Rodgers will finish the season as a top-6 fantasy quarterback in most scoring formats. Whether or not he will return to his dominant form largely depends on who Green Bay hires as its next head coach. However, even in a worst-case scenario Rodgers will remain a very solid option in fantasy for 2019.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion) has left the Week 17 game against the Lions and is being evaluated for a concussion. It's bad news for those that are using Rodgers with something on the line in the regular season finale in a meaningless game. He was already more of a weak QB1 going into this game without wide receivers Davante Adams (knee) and Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion), who had been Rodgers' top two weapons. Rodgers had gone 3-for-5 for only 26 yards before leaving. We'd be surprised if he returns. Deshone Kizer has taken over under center.
