Rodgers isn’t practicing to start the week.

Fantasy football advice

Rodgers has had an up-and-down season, but it mainly is due to the injuries of his supporting cast. He has completed 64.7% of his passes for 3,490 yards with 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Rodgers’ days of scrambling are largely behind him, but he still has 31 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Rodgers hasn’t been very fantasy relevant this season. In his first matchup against the Bears, Rodgers threw for 291 yards and had 1 touchdown with three interceptions. Sit him in any lingering fantasy football lineups.
