Aaron Rodgers has been steamrolling defenses left and right this season, on his way to an impressive 23.6 fantasy points per game. He now has four straight 20+ point games as he heads to Indianapolis to face a Colts defense that has allowed the lowest point total in the league to opposing fantasy quarterbacks so far this season. Should the tough matchup deter fantasy owners from starting Rodgers this weekend? We break down the fantasy analysis below.
Fantasy Football analysis: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers has scored two or more touchdowns every game but one this season. The only game he failed to do so was in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are the most difficult opponent he has faced up until this point. The Colts are actually a more formidable defense than the Buccaneers, but is a tough opponent enough to make you bench the quarterback with the sixth highest average points per game this season? It shouldn’t be. Aaron Rodgers has been at the top of his game lately, and especially if Davante Adams is available on Sunday he is a quarterback worth betting on. Start him as a QB1 this weekend.
