Rodgers throws third touchdown pass

Aaron Rodgers was a risk-reward fantasy starter in Week 5.

It appears the reward was much greater than the risk, however, as Rodgers has thrown for 313 yards and three touchdowns against Atlanta despite having a right shoulder that’s less than 100 percent.

His third score went to Donald Lee on a 4-yard pass.

In Miami, Ronnie Brown had another solid stat line with 125 yards and one score in a win over San Diego. If Brown is this good coming off ACL surgery, how in the world did Ricky Williams ever win the top spot on the depth chart?

Brown is re-emerging into a fantasy star. LaDainian Tomlinson is another story entirely.

He rushed for a mere 35 yards in the loss. And before you send me e-mails about whether or not you should sit him next week, just remember that he’s still one of the elite runners in fantasy football.

You’d have to have a sick backfield or play in a 6-team league to ever sit Tomlinson.
