|QB has gone deep less than you think -- Wed Oct 3 1:33 pm --|
Packers offense has been affected by O-Line play
|Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have thrown 11 deep balls through four games, while Rodgers leads the NFL in accuracy on deep balls. Rodgers has also been sacked the most of any quarterback in the league (16 times) and been unable have the opportunity to throw deep. (Thomas Maney of ProFootballFocus)|
FF Today's Take: While the relative stagnation of the Packers offense has had fantasy owners of Rodgers worried, three out of the next five weeks could be as grim for Rodgers as the first four were. Rodgers and the Packers offense face the Colts, Texans, Rams, Jaguars, and Cardinals whose defenses rank 11th, 4th, 26th, 32nd, and 3rd in the NFL in sack percentage. While there are some good matchups for Rodgers against the Rams and Jaguars, fantasy owners of the Packers quarterback will have to remain squeamish against Colts, Texans, and Cardinals.
