Aaron Rodgers is off to his best start in nearly a decade. Through four games, the 36-year-old quarterback has 1,214 passing yards, 13 touchdowns, and no interceptions. He’s on pace for 52 touchdowns and more than 4,800 yards, but he faces what might be his stiffest test of the season so far this week when the Packers are on the road to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Opposing quarterback have thrown seven touchdowns and six picks in five games against the Buccaneers defense. Signal callers are averaging barely over 15 points a game, in standard formats, against Tampa Bay. But they haven’t faced anyone quite like the resurgent Rodgers.

It’s a tough matchup that might scare away the most timid of fantasy managers, but Rodgers looks like a man possessed this season. He’s just too good to leave on the bench.
