Fantasy Points by Week

  • Rodgers caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears. Rodgers spent most of the season as the Packers' third-string tight end, but he has assumed the role of No. 2 tight end behind Lance Kendricks with Martellus Bennett no longer on the roster. While Rodgers is now one spot higher on the depth chart, he caught just two passes the last two weeks in that role, so don't expect him to make a fantasy impact anytime soon.

  • Rodgers will continue to have an increased role in the Packers' offense with starting tight end Martellus Bennett (shoulder) already ruled out for Sunday's game in Chicago, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. Rodgers led all Packers tight ends in offensive snaps while Bennett sat out Monday's loss to the Lions, playing 33 (of 59) while Lance Kendricks earned the start and picked up 29 snaps of his own. Neither player is a great fantasy option with Brett Hundley under center, as evidenced by their combined three catches (on five targets) for 37 yards Monday. Don't expect much more production this weekend against the Bears' 11th-ranked pass defense.

  • Rodgers caught one pass for five yards in Monday's loss to the Lions. Rodgers played a season-high 33 snaps Monday, according to Rob Demovsky of, with starting tight end Martellus Bennett (shoulder) sidelined, but the extra time on the field did not result in any meaningful boost in production. Rodgers would likely continue seeing extra snaps if Bennett misses more action, but he would still be the No. 2 tight end behind Lance Kendricks, and the Packers' sputtering passing attack would make him a long shot to be of much help to fantasy players.

  • Rodgers is listed as the third-string tight end on the Packers' depth chart heading into Week 1. Rodgers was the Packers' primary tight end two years ago, but he took a back seat to Jared Cook a year ago, and will now play behind two other players this season. As such, expect his fantasy contributions to be minimal.

  • Packers' Richard Rodgers: Ready for action Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rodgers (finger) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins. Rodgers, who missed out on the preseason opener due to a fractured finger on his right hand, seems to be healthy again and should step in as the No. 3 tight end behind Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks.
