Things are ... not going well for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in both fantasy and reality. The team as a whole is 3-4, but they've lost three straight games to the likes of the New York Giants, the Jets and, most recently, the Washington Commanders starting Taylor Heinicke at quarterback. Now, we don't want to outright call that rock bottom (the New York teams have been very good this season) but, well, I think we can all agree we expected more from the Packers.
We knew the team would struggle to get things together a bit considering they lost All-World wide receiver Davante Adams, but things don't hurt that much when you have the back-to-back MVP winner under center.
Of course, Rodgers hasn't been his typical back-to-back MVP self this season.
Rodgers currently ranks as the 18th highest-scoring quarterback in fantasy through seven weeks. Perhaps most startlingly, Rodgers has yet to score over 20 fantasy points IN ANY GAME THIS SEASON.
Yes, we know the wide receiver corps in Green Bay is lacking, but I don't think anyone could have expected this.
And if you were expecting things to take a turn for the better in Week 8, well, that's looking like a long shot. Rodgers and the Packers will take on Josh Allen and a rested Buffalo Bills team coming off their bye week.
The Bills are considered the best team in the AFC (maybe even in football), so if Rodgers has any chance to pull off the upset, he's going to have to channel his old MVP form.
