Rodgers caught 30 passes (on 46 targets) for 271 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games played this season.
Rodgers benefitted from wideout Jordy Nelson's absence by tying for the team-lead with eight touchdowns last season, but with Nelson returning, Davante Adams emerging, and, most importantly, Jared Cook joining Green Bay, Rodgers' role was reduced this time around. While the 25-year-old was still able to help the Packers move the sticks here and there, Cook's significantly more dynamic skill set left Rodgers as the team's second option at tight end, which unsurprisingly hurt his production. Overall, Rodgers' numbers closely mirrored those from his rookie campaign, providing incentive for him to elevate his game as he enters the final year of his current contract next season.
The touchdown reception came in the first quarter and was Rodgers' only catch of the day, but it gave the
Rodgers caught his only target for 14 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.
Rodgers has seen either one or two targets in each of the previous six games, as Aaron Rodgers continues to spread the ball around to a variety of receivers. He figures to continue that trend heading into Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Giants.
Rodgers caught both of his targets for 20 yards and one touchdown Saturday versus the Vikings.
Rodgers was one of three Packers to reach pay dirt Saturday, but -- like the others in the Green Bay receiving corps -- was completely overshadowed by Jordy Nelson's dominant performance. Keep in mind that was just his second touchdown all season, though. Next up is a Week 17 matchup with the Detroit Lions.
Rodgers had one catch for 10 yards in Sunday's 30-27 win over Chicago.
Rodgers was on the field for a third of Green Bay's offensive snaps but once again was near the bottom of the totem pole in terms of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets. Jared Cook has been targeted more often since he returned from injury and Rodgers won't have much fantasy value as long as Cook continues to receive much of the tight end targets.
