Rodgers relayed Monday that he has no restrictions after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery earlier in the offseason, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I'm feeling really good right now," Rodgers added.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Mere cleanups, such as the one performed on his knee, generally don't have a long-lasting impact, and Rodgers' recovery appears to be no different. Monday marked the first day of the Packers' offseason program, which head coach Mike McCarthy noted in February would include Rodgers. Because the preceding came to fruition and Rodgers is feeling no ill effects from the procedure, he can now look forward to rebuilding his rapport with Jordy Nelson (knee), who was also able to participate Monday.

Rodgers had arthroscopic surgery Jan. 16 to address a lingering issue in his left knee. He played golf at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am two weeks ago and should be fine for Green Bay's offseason program.

Rodgers said this week that his knee feels "great" after undergoing arthroscopic surgery last month, USA Today reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers is participating in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, marking his first round of golf since last July. The aforementioned procedure was intended to clean up an old injury, and his ability to make it through 18 holes is an encouraging sign in his recovery. Expect Rodgers to be healthy once the offseason program kicks off in April.

Rodgers underwent arthroscopic knee surgery after the Packers' season ended on Jan. 16, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers has never been listed with a knee issue in the course of his professional career, but the procedure was performed as a "cleanup of an old injury," which could be a reference to reconstructive surgery that was performed on his left knee in January of 2004 at the University of California. Arthroscopic surgeries aren't accompanied by lengthy recovery periods, and the quarterback himself stated Friday that he's "doing well" and "recovering on schedule." As a result, he pulled himself out of Sunday's Pro Bowl but shouldn't have any problem being available for the entirety of the offseason program.

Rodgers completed 24 of 44 passes for 261 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 26-20 divisional round overtime loss to the Cardinals. He also gained 21 yards on two rushes.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The All-Pro quarterback somehow managed another miraculous Hail Mary, completing a 41-yard off-balance heave to Jeff Janis with zeros on the clock to help send the game into overtime. Although he only suffered one sack on the night after having been brought down an eye-popping eight times in the Week 16 meeting between the two teams, Rodgers was under fairly heavy pressure on a number of occasions and also lost primary receiver Randall Cobb to a chest injury in the first half. Considering he played the balance of the game with Jeff Janis, James Jones and Jared Abbrederis as his top three wideouts, Rodgers' effort was certainly a valiant one that fell short due to the heroics of Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald.

Rodgers connected on 21 of his 36 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over Washington.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers had been picked off in five of the Packers' final six games of the season and had been held to a single touchdown in four of them. He righted the path in the second quarter, getting Washington to jump offsides - setting up a free play that ended on a Randall Cobb touchdown. He connected with Davante for a second score just before halftime. Next up for Rodgers is the challenge of Arizona's eighth-ranked pass defense - the same defense that held Rodgers to 151 yards in Week 16.

Rodgers completed 28 of 44 passes for 291 yards, with a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Vikings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers added 12 yards on five carries, was sacked five times and lost a fumble. Once again, he made a bunch of plays that were reminiscent of his form from previous seasons, but with quite a few ugly throws also mixed in. Though it was an improvement from the previous week's massacre in Arizona, Rodgers still looks very uncomfortable in a Green Bay offense that's been decimated by injuries. Sunday's loss may have cost the Packers a division title and home playoff game, but it does mean that Rodgers will get to face the Washington defense, whereas Teddy Bridgewater will have his hands full with the Seahawks.

Rodgers turned the ball over three times, including two fumbles that were returned for a pair of touchdowns, in Sunday's 38-8 blowout loss at Arizona. He was rested in the fourth quarter, finishing with 151 yards and one touchdown.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers had to deal with a strong pass rush, and was once again unable to sustain drives. His 28-yard touchdown pass to Eddie Lacy midway through the third quarter were the only points that the Packers scored. He hasn't passed for more than 300 yards in six games, and has thrown for more than two touchdown passes just once in the last seven. If you're still playing in Week 17, take note that Rodgers will play at home against the Vikings.

Rodgers completed 22 of 39 passes for 204 yards, with one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 30-20 win at Oakland.

Competitive Edge Analysis

In a favorable matchup, at least on paper, Rodgers failed to produce, although he did have a fourth-quarter touchdown pass called back due to offensive pass interference. His interception came late in the game around the goal line on an ill-advised throw, with the Packers leading. He still hasn't thrown for over 300 yards since Week 10, and hasn't passed for more than two scores since Week 9. That might not change next week against a strong Cardinals defense, although you're probably not sitting him unless you have a superior option.

Rodgers completed 22 of 35 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 28-7 win over the Cowboys. He also rushed for 27 yards on three carries.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers could have had a bigger fantasy game, but was stuffed at the one-yard line on a fourth-down play in the first half. While Rodgers didn't go off Sunday, the running game got back on track with Eddie Lacy, which bodes well for Green Bay's offensive production moving forward. Rodgers hasn't had a typical season for his high standards, but has been much more productive at home, throwing at least two touchdowns in six of seven games at Lambeau Field. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, the stud QB will be on the road the next two weeks, although his Week 15 opponent, Oakland, hasn't been able to stop many opposing QBs this year.
