Solid performance not enough
Rodgers completed 20 of 29 passes for 225 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions during the Packers' 13-10 loss to the 49ers in their NFC divisional-round matchup Saturday night. He also committed a fumble that was recovered by Green Bay.
Rodgers' numbers were underwhelming from a fantasy perspective due to the complete absence of touchdowns. The future Hall of Famer also couldn't follow up a very efficient first quarter with enough production the rest of the way, not leading another scoring drive until a 14-play, 57-yard march early in the fourth quarter that culminated in a Mason Crosby 33-yard field goal. Those points would prove to be the final ones of the night for Green Bay, with the Packers going backward on their final three plays before punting the ball over to the 49ers and never getting it back. The heartbreaking and abrupt finish to a season in which he and his teammates squandered the NFC's No. 1 seed could be an intriguing factor in Rodgers' plans for 2022, considering he'd seemingly softened his offseason stance on wanting to play elsewhere for what would be the potential final year of his contract as this past successful regular season unfolded.
