Despite having their ticket for the postseason punched already, both the Green Bay Packers and their opponents this week, the Chicago Bears, still have something to play for when it comes to setting up for the playoffs. For fantasy football, that means both teams will not have the luxury of resting their starters this week, and that means another great week to have Aaron Rodgers in your lineup.

Fantasy Football analysis: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers slung four touchdown passes on the Titans last week; it was his sseventh game this season with four scores (including both passing and rushing touchdowns). In fact, he’s been good for multiple touchdowns in all but one game this season. The last time he played the Bears, back in Week 12, he had 211 passing yards and four touchdowns. The Bears have allowed eight passing touchdowns in the four games since then, picking off opposing passers four times during that stretch.
