Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was forced to leave Week 6 after a hard hit from Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, where he landed on his throwing shoulder. After the injury, many fantasy owners considered their season over, but with Rodgers returning in Week 15, can you trust him?

Earlier, it was reported that Rodgers collarbone injury is not 100 percent healed. With Rodgers not being fully healthy can you start him in the fantasy playoffs? The Packers take on the Panthers this week who rank 11th best against quarterbacks. The Panthers at home allow 17.45 fantasy points a game to QBs, which is three more points than their season average.
Rodgers was drafted in many leagues as the first quarterback off the board and a cornerstone of many teams. In the full five games that Rodgers played this season, he averaged 273 passing yards, 2.6 touchdowns, and 0.6 interceptions. Even if he isn’t 100 percent, you should start Rodgers. A less than healthy Rodgers, is still a much better option than most quarterbacks. Rodgers, for me, this week is a top-five quarterback only behind Russell Wilson, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, and Drew Brees.Back to the Fantasy Football Newsfeed
