Each week in 1st and 10, I empty out the drawer of my fantasy mind, with 10 thoughts to consider as your season progresses.Is Aaron Rodgers now officially a mistake or at least a dilemma? Yes, you likely drafted him too early and disobeyed www.FFChamps.com Commandment 5, “Thou Shall Wait on a Quarterback". Learn from it for next season but be patient. Rodgers has opened to a brutal schedule vs. the pass and will have 2 more weeks of tough matchups. Then, it will get better fast, in time to make a run all the way to your championship. The bargain hunter traders will be circling, looking for a deal or even a steal. Don't bite unless it improves your starting lineup. You made your Rodgers bed, ride it out. His value is at its lowest right now. As the stock cliché goes, buy low, sell high. In one of my fantasy football leagues, each team drafts a coach, with 7 points awarded for a coach’s win, 0 for a loss. The team that had Mike McCarthy lost by 2 points this week. Undoubtedly...

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer For all the Green Bay Packers' complaints about a mistake by replacement officials that cost them a game Monday night, they probably wouldn't have been in position to lose on a last-second play if their offensive line had done a better job protecting Aaron Rodgers in the first half.

NFLTop Performers Through Week 3: Where’s Aaron Rodgers?

I know it's early in the season but it's always fun to discuss and debate who the best players are in the NFL. If you ask me I still say Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback, Ray Rice is the ultimate running back and Andre Johnson is the most complete wide receiver in the game.  But not right now!  While these players are clearly still at the top of their game and among...

Saints defense needs a new attitude

The last quarterback the NFL's lowest-ranked defense should want to face next? Aaron Rodgers. But if the New Orleans Saints are going to rise from the league basement, finding a way to stymie the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player is a must in Sunday's game at Green Bay (4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, FOX). Among the biggest reasons for the Saints' 0-3 start is a defense...

Will Aaron Rodgers finish as a top 5 QB? (currently 20th in standard...
