Packers QB: Aaron Rodgers was forced from the game on Sunday night with an oblique injury, placing his status for Sunday in doubt. Rodgers has stated that he is going to play if allowed to, but with the Green Bay bye week coming in Week 14, we may see the team give him the extra time to get right. Rodgers has also been playing with a broken thumb on top of his latest injury. 

Rodgers did throw two interceptions before leaving Sunday night, but he also was 11-of-16 for 8.8 yards per pass attempt and a pair of touchdowns. If he can start here against the Bears, Rodgers will have one of his best matchups of the season and can be played in 1QB leagues. 

Over the past five weeks, the Bears are allowing a league-high 9.4 yards per pass attempt while they are allowing a 72.7% completion rate (31st) with a 3.0% sack rate (32nd) over that span. Quarterbacks are averaging 21.3 fantasy points per game against them over that period, including a 24.8-point outing this past week to Mike White. 

If Rodgers cannot play, then Jordan Love becomes a matchup-based option for those filling the position or looking to attack what has quickly become the worst defense in the NFL. In relief of Rodgers last week, Love was 6-of-9 for 113 yards and a touchdown.
