  • Rodgers rushed three times for 12 yards in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets. The final stat line looks decidedly insignificant on the surface, but the modest three carries that Rodgers saw over six snaps actually represented a notable upgrade over his recent level of involvement. Rodgers had logged a combined two rushing touches over the prior three contests, making him the forgotten man in the backfield over that span. Even under the circumstances of a sizable second-half deficit Week 9, during which Doug Martin was given an early hook, it was Peyton Barber, not Rodgers, who was handed the reins of the rushing attack. However, Rodgers was at least part of the action Sunday, resurrecting the possibility that he could begin seeing regular touches again in a complementary role.

  • Rodgers rushed once for one yard and lost five yards on his sole reception in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Panthers. Rodgers' lost season continues, as he's now seen just one carry in consecutive games and eight totes overall in his last four contests. The 27-year-old retains a modest role in the passing game as well, but it's nowhere near enough to make up for the almost complete lack of contributions on the ground. Much had been made of Rodgers serving as a high-usage complement to Doug Martin once the latter returned from suspension, but the opposite has been true. While injuries in front of him or a change in offensive philosophy could certainly brighten his outlook in the coming weeks, Rodgers presently has next to no fantasy value in any format.

  • Rodgers rushed once for two yards and brought in his only target for nine yards in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Bills. Rodgers continues to play a minuscule role in the offense, as he logged just two snaps Sunday. Meanwhile, backfield mates Doug Martin (43 snaps) and Charles Sims (24 snaps) saw considerably more opportunity, and even Peyton Barber (three snaps) narrowly outpaced him. Rodgers has just seven combined carries in the past three contests, rendering him a fantasy non-factor for the time being.

  • Rodgers rushed three times for two yards and brought in his only target for 13 yards in Thursday's 19-14 loss to the Patriots. With the return of Doug Martin from suspension, Rodgers played only 13 offensive snaps (18 percent), trailing both Martin (26 snaps) and Charles Sims (32 snaps) by a significant margin. However, given that the Bucs were behind throughout the second half and also likely wanted to see plenty of Martin in his first game back, Rodgers' reduced participation may only be an outlier. Looking ahead, both Rodgers and Martin are likely to see healthier snap counts, while Sims is unlikely to be as involved in games when Tampa isn't facing a prolonged deficit.

  • Rodgers gained 83 yards on 16 carries and brought in two of three targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 25-23 win over the Giants. After being limited to five rushes in Week 3 versus the Vikings, Rodgers reclaimed a much more traditional lead-back role Sunday. He set the tone early with a 36-yard scamper in the first quarter and averaged an impressive 5.2 yards per rush overall. Rodgers' role will now undergo a transition, as Doug Martin (suspension) returns to the team Monday and is expected to play Thursday versus the Patriots. Rodgers should still retain a fairly sizable role on most weeks, although it will be more difficult to predict his touches going forward.
