Aaron Rodgers was off to a good but not especially amazing start to the season entering Week 7, which was disappointing with Mike McCarthy gone. Then he erupted Sunday, becoming just the third player in NFL history (and only the second in the Super Bowl era) to record 400+ passing yards with five TD passes and a rushing score in a single game, as Rodgers went off for nearly 50 fantasy points despite missing Davante Adams and with Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison both hobbled to the point of nearly not being able to play. The 35 year old signal caller got 13.8 YPA and finished with a perfect Passer Rating, and it almost seemed as if Matt LaFleur was going out of his way to pad Rodgers' stats with all of the pass plays he called around the goal line (he entered with the third-most pass attempts inside the 10-yard line this season).

Deebo Samuel is banged up and looks unlikely to play this week, so Pettis should see increased targets against a Washington secondary that's yielded the fifth-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Terry McLaurin is admittedly tough to sit at this point, but he's the only Washington player even worth considering using in fantasy lineups against a San Francisco defense that sports the league's highest 3&Out% and is on pace to allow the fewest passing yards since 1982. The 49ers have shut down some of the league's best wide receivers this season, thanks in no small part to Nick Bosa easily leading the NFL in pressure rate.

THE NO-DOUBTERS Chicago Bears (at Denver Broncos) The Bears came up short against the Green Bay Packers at home in the Thursday night season opener, but fault for the loss can hardly be laid at the feet of the Chicago defense. The Bears picked up right where they left off in 2018, putting the clamps on Aaron Rodgers and company. The Pack won the game, but Green Bay scored just 10 points and had a very un-Rodgers-like 213 yards of total offense in the contest.

The Green Bay Packers acquired fourth-year linebacker B.J. Goodson in a trade Tuesday with the New York Giants. The Packers, who kick off the season Thursday night at Chicago, were thin at inside linebacker with Oren Burks sidelined by a torn pectoral muscle. Goodson, a fourth-round pick by the Giants in 2016 out of Clemson, registered 116 tackles in 37 career games with New York.

Mike McCarthy was back in front of the Green Bay Packers' players on Wednesday. "He wanted an opportunity to speak with the team. Murphy felt it was a good idea as McCarthy didn't have a chance to address the team after being fired Sunday, hours after Green Bay's 20-17 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
