What to do with Aaron Rodgers in Week 16 of the fantasy football playoffs

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Aaron Rodgers ahead of the Titans Week 16 matchup against the Packers on Sunday Night Football.

The Packers are in the middle of an impressive run of form, winning their last four straight including a 24-16 win over the Panthers just last week. This week, they’ll turn their attention to the Titans who are ranked 27th against fantasy quarterbacks, so you know it’s going to be nothing less than a great week for Aaron Rodgers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers had a season-low 143 passing yards last week against the Panthers as he threw 20-for-29 overall for one passing touchdown, but added another 26 rushing yards while finding the end zone himself. The Packers scored on their first three possessions and held on throughout the second half to come out on top. Regardless of Rodgers’ struggles last week, all signs point to a huge game against Tennessee in Week 16 against a defense who struggles immensely against opposition in the air. This is great news for any fantasy manager who owns Rodgers, and likewise Davante Adams or Allen Lazard. There’s no reason Rodgers shouldn’t have a giant game and be a lock for WR1 on any fantasy team.
