Sunday, October 20th, 2019

Aaron Rodgers delivered a masterful performance, throwing five touchdowns and running for another as the Green Bay Packers rolled over the Oakland Raiders 42-24 on Sunday. Rodgers carved up the Raiders' defense, finishing with 429 yards passing and completing 25 of 31 for the Packers, who improved to 6-1 under new head coach Matt LaFleur.

Week 7 Fantasy Wrap: Aaron Rodgers reminds us of what he can do

Sunday, October 20th, 2019

Aaron Rodgers was off to a good but not especially amazing start to the season entering Week 7, which was disappointing with Mike McCarthy gone. Then he erupted Sunday, becoming just the third player in NFL history (and only the second in the Super Bowl era) to record 400+ passing yards with five TD passes and a rushing score in a single game, as Rodgers went off for nearly 50 fantasy points despite missing Davante Adams and with Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison both hobbled to the point of nearly not being able to play. The 35 year old signal caller got 13.8 YPA and finished with a perfect Passer Rating, and it almost seemed as if Matt LaFleur was going out of his way to pad Rodgers' stats with all of the pass plays he called around the goal line (he entered with the third-most pass attempts inside the 10-yard line this season).
