We're going to cover fantasy football all season long here at Bird's Nest by answering five questions every week about various fantasy-related topics. FLESH FOR FANTASYYYYYY. Let's roll.
We're nearing the end of the fantasy football regular season, so I thought I'd forgo the phony FAQ this week in favor of doling out some year-end awards. It'll be like Matthew Berry's fantasy awards, only without the creepy stories of him hitting on women!
1. Stud of the Year: Aaron Rodgers. If you don't make your league's playoffs with Aaron Rodgers on your roster, I don't want to know what horrible amalgam of skill position players you needed to deploy to prevent that from occurring. Even if JJ Arrington was your running back, you should have been able to make the playoffs with Rodgers as your QB. The man is a remorseless killing machine. He has at least two TD's in every game. He has 39 total TDs with a quarter of the season left to go. And ...

Dave Tollefson was feeling good about the New York Giants' chances of upsetting Green Bay on Sunday. So good that the defensive end mocked Aaron Rodgers by performing the quarterback's celebratory move the pantomimed placement of a title belt around his waist following a fourth-quarter sack.
But Tollefson and the rest of the Giants ultimately learned there's a difference...
Everyone seems to want a piece of Aaron Rodgers and the reigning Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers - even at $250 a pop.
The Packers launched a public stock sale Tuesday morning and the response from fans was akin to a Cyber Monday frenzy.
Within the first 11 minutes of the sale, the team said 1,600 orders were placed at a cost of $250 per share.
The stock has no value to...
The Giants tied this game up with 58 seconds left in the game, as they scored too quickly. Aaron Rodgers quickly drove the Packers right down the field for a 31-yard, game winning field goal from Mason Crosby. Rodgers completed 28 of 46 passes for 369 yards with 4 TD passes and 1 INT. He also carried the ball 4 times for 32 yards (8.0 ypc) in this game. Ryan Grant “led”...
The Green Bay Packers have an MVP candidate in quarterback Aaron Rodgers, a Super Bowl championship won just 10 months ago and an undefeated team making a run toward another title for Titletown. The Packers now have hundreds of new owners, too.
Insurance companies spend a ton of money on advertising, and they don’t even have a product anyone really wants. Kind of like Keystone Light. The good news is that most of you will get to watch Aaron Rodgers in to the evening. The bad news is that you’ll have to endure five or six State Farm ads in that time.
The rest of the late games are pretty trashy. Cleveland and Arizona...
With their perfect season on the line, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense went right to work. Five plays and 58 seconds later, Green Bay passed its toughest test, says Don Banks.

The Packers' pursuit of perfection continues. Aaron Rodgers threw four TD passes and Mason Crosby kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired to beat the Giants 38-35.
The Giants came to play tonight. That is what the fans who witnessed this game will remember.
The Giants (6-6) went blow-for-blow with the league’s best team – the Green Bay Packers (12-0) – and lost on a FG as time expired, 38-35.
Outside of a victory, you couldn’t have asked for anything more. This was a great game. Giant fans have nothing to be disappointed about tonight...
After two weeks of Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, the Giants are glad to finally be facing a quarterback who is, well, human.
