News: 2 days agoRodgers did not play a snap on offense in Monday's 35-17 victory over the Lions. He did return a punt for two yards.
Spin: Rodgers played a few snaps and caught a pass in the Packers' Week 1 loss, but he only handled the punt-return duties in Week 2. With at least four veteran receivers ahead of him on the depth chart, Rodgers could remain limited to special teams for the time being.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Packers drafted Rodgers in the third round of April's draft. The Clemson product is a 5-foot-9, 210-pound receiver/rusher/punt returner. Built like a back, Rodgers is not coincidentally very good after the catch and is a quality tackle breaker. He has good speed, strength and hands, but his lack of length hurts his separation ability and could limit him to slot duties (or perhaps even a conversion to RB) in the pros. Rodgers' 6.4 aDOT over the past three seasons is second-lowest in this class and he handled only 15% of the targets and 11% of the air yards in Clemson's offense. He'll look to carve out a slot/punt returner role, but he'll have his hands full finding a consistent offensive role with Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Devin Funchess in the mix. He's barely worth late-round consideration.
