Updating previous reports, Aaron Rodgers is expected to be held out of Sunday's game against the Steelers. HC Mike McCarthy said that Rodgers "Looked ready to play" in a press conference yesterday, but as of now Rodgers has yet to be cleared by team doctors. Matt Flynn has once again taken most of the first team reps this week, with Scott Tolzien serving as backup.
Aaron Rodgers owners should already have a plan in place for their championship game this week. However, if you were counting on a Rodgers return and were running a quarterback-by-commitee approach, try and secure Kirk Cousins , Jay Cutler or Ryan Tannehill , all of whom are ranked ahead of Matt Flynn.
Flynn played well last week, but Pittsburgh, like most other teams, is far less forgiving to opposing quarterbacks than Dallas. WR Jordy Nelson obviously takes a hit with Flynn throwing the ball, but can still be relied on to put up WR3 numbers. Nelson remains the only reliable fantasy receiver on the Packers' roster.
