Rodgers caught one pass for seven yards in Thursday's victory over the Bears.
Another week, another quiet outing for Rodgers, who has totaled just six receptions for 37 yards in four games since Week 3. He and the Packers will next face off again a Falcons defense that has been routinely beaten by opposing tight ends this season, but Rodgers has averaged fewer than three targets per game in 2016, which suggests he will not see enough passes in his direction to really take advantage of the matchup.

Unable to take advantage of an increased snap count in Jared Cook's (ankle) absence, Rodgers turned in his worst statistical outing of the young season. The 24-year-old tight end did play 91.3 percent of the available offensive snaps, suggesting he could be a useful low-end option at his position until Cook returns.

Cook will be afforded time to rest and recover with the
Rodgers appears to have taken a backseat to offseason acquisition Jared Cook in 2016, or at least as QB Aaron Rodgers' go-to receiving tight end. Case in point, while both ended up posting similar yardage, Cook garnered three times as many targets (6). Fortunately, Rodgers gets the Lions on deck Week 3, a team he burned for eight catches across eight targets for 146 yards and a touchdown the last time the two teams met.
