  • Rodgers did not log any touches from scrimmage but returned three kickoffs for 60 yards in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Lions. The versatile veteran didn't see any snaps on offense for the first time since Week 9, as Doug Martin's return from a concussion made Rodgers the odd man out in the backfield. The seven-year veteran has been minimally involved as a running back since the first three games of the season, when he served as the lead back while Martin finished serving his suspension. As such, his fantasy value remains limited to formats that factor in return yards.

  • Rodgers carried three times for 25 yards and returned one kickoff for 20 yards in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Packers. Despite Doug Martin's (concussion) absence, the seven-year veteran ceded lead-back duties to Peyton Barber, who logged 52 snaps to Rodgers' five. Rodgers was able to rip off a 19-yard run on one of his three carries, leading to a season-best 8.3 yards per tote. Considering Barber's impressive showing through both the ground and air Sunday, Rodgers appears destined for a complementary role for the balance of the campaign, irrespective of Martin's status.

  • Rodgers should benefit from added snaps out of the backfield Sunday against the Packers with teammate Doug Martin (concussion) ruled out for the contest, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Rodgers might end up drawing the start, but Charles Sims will handle passing-down work and Peyton Barber also should have a role, which may include goal-line carries. Furthermore, the Buccaneers recently lost two offensive line starters to injury, just as they prepare to face a Green Bay defense that has mostly been vulnerable to the pass rather than the run this season. Martin hasn't been having much luck in his lead-back role, so there's not much reason to think his replacement will fare significantly better.

  • Rodgers rushed eight times for 30 yards and secured one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Falcons. He also returned two kickoffs for 43 yards. With Doug Martin exiting in the first half with a possible concussion, Rodgers saw his most extensive playing time since Week 4 against the Giants, the last game of the former's suspension. The 27-year-old had not logged more than three carries in any subsequent contest, but he could be in line for an expanded opportunity once again in Week 13 versus the Packers if Martin is unable to return for that game.

  • Rodgers rushed once for three yards and returned two kickoffs for 54 yards in Sunday's 30-20 win over the Dolphins. Rodgers saw only two snaps on offense, but he logged 11 plays on special teams. The veteran back took over as the primary kickoff returner due to the mid-week release of Bernard Reedy, but his offensive role is as minimal as ever. Given current trends, Rodgers' minuscule fantasy value is presently limited to formats that count return yards.
