We’ve got less than a month left in the FanDuel season (no games past the Divisional Round of the playoffs), which means you’re running out of chances to bump up how much money you cash out at the end of the NFL season (since you’re not silly enough to actually play in NBA games, right?). Since the only complaints I saw last week were about my spelling and identification of teams’ opponents, we’re going to keep going with the Stars and Scrubs format. Except, unlike TLC, we do want scrubs who provide lots of value for a very small cost.
Stars: Aaron Rodgers ($9,300 vs. TEN), Sam Bradford ($6,900 at TB): A lot of the top-flight QBs have matchups they have a great chance of exploiting this week: which is why Rodgers is the only one I list. He’s the cheapest of the A-listers, is by far the most productive member of his offense and has the opportunity to put up monster numbers. Bradford, on the other hand, will be trying to do what Drew Brees did last week and just completely embarras...

These days, even high-profile NFL quarterbacks are doing the act known as "photobombing" to score some instant Internet fame.
Apparently, there is now a Tumblr website called "Aaron Rodgers Photobombs" which features last year's NFL MVP posing in team photos.
Below is just some that they collected:

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the Packers cruised through the regular season last year, earned the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs and had a bye in the first round, the end result was clearly not what the team wanted.
But that experience of getting blown out by the New York Giants in the postseason divisional round has not changed the way coach Mike McCarthy views a first-round bye.
I'm glad to be joined for this week's Q&A by Aaron Nagler. Aaron is the co-founder of the fine Packers blog CheeseheadTV and also writes for Bleacher Report. You can also follow his comments on the Packers, the NFL, and everything else under the sun on Twitter.
Total Titans: Aaron Rodgers' level of play last year was, I think, probably the greatest I've ever...
Last week I mulled the unthinkable concept of benching Aaron Rodgers in the playoffs due to the superstar's recent struggles. I used Russell Wilson as the primary example of the type of hot quarterback to consider replacing him with because I faced that exact choice in two leagues. As it turns out, I couldn't pull the trigger on the switch. Fortunately, Rodgers' play...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Pro Bowl voting is over for fans, and the Packers are well represented in the final tallies.
Six Packers won the fan-vote at their position in the NFC: Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (777,827 votes), outside linebacker Clay Matthews (343,514), fullback John Kuhn (181,820), strong safety Charles Woodson (117,230), center Jeff Saturday (312,013) and kick returner Randall...
WMFL Staff Consensus Rankings – Week 16
At the quarterback position both Zach and Rizzla see Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady as the top two options with Tony Romo also being included as a QB1 due to his match-up with a the Saints and their porous secondary.
At the running back position both of our writers believe that KnowShown Moreno is a RB1 this week against the Browns in a matchup...
Coach Mike McCarthy isn't about to disregard the importance of the first-round bye simply because his Green Bay Packers were bounced out of last season's NFC playoffs without a victory.
The only difference in his team's pursuit of that goal this season is the starters likely won't be receiving any rest over the final weeks this time around.
Green Bay can help its...
