What to do with Aaron Rodgers in Week 12 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Aaron Rodgers ahead of the Packers Week 12 matchup against the Bears.

Top Targets for Sunday Night’s Chicago at Green Bay Showdown

Aaron Rodgers has had one bad game this season, at least when it comes to fantasy football. That came back in Week 6, when the Bucs held him scoreless and picked him off twice. In the five games since, he’s thrown 16 touchdowns, a whole bunch of yards, and just two interceptions. I don’t see him slowing down this week against the Bears.

Fantasy Football analysis: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers threw three touchdowns last week in an overtime loss to the Colts. He could have had four and shaved off the extra frame if he’d seen a wide open Robert Tonyan in the end zone at the very end of regulation, but hey, for fantasy football purposes, we’ll take it. That was the seventh time this season he’s had three or more touchdowns in a game.

Despite a good start to the season, the Bears defense has struggled against quarterbacks lately. They’ve given up two touchdowns in each of their last four games, picking off a passer just once in that span. So if Kirk Cousins can throw two scores, just imagine what Aaron Rodgers can do.
