News: Aaron Rodgers carted off field; ARod returns and finishes with 3TDs

Smitty’s Take: What a game! Aaron Rodgers gave everyone a scare in Week 1, getting carted off the field in the second quarter with a knee injury. He returned, and although he was clearly hobbled, he finished 20-of-30 for 286 yards and three touchdowns in his comeback win over the Bears. While I’m sure Rodgers injury updates will be early and often all week long, Rodgers says he will be ready for Week 2… we believe him. He is a top 1-3 fantasy QB for Week 2 on! Geronimo Allison (69/1TD), Randall Cobb (142/1TD) and Davante Adams (88/1TD) all had big games in this one, and that could happen again. Adams had a slow start to this one, but he has top 5-10WR upside moving forward. Jamaal Williams rushed 15 times for just 47 yards; unless he can really prove some things in the next contest, Aaron Jones will make his case to be the lead back upon his return.
