News: Rodgers gained 13 yards on three carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans. Impact: Rodgers started in place of Steven Jackson (hamstring) for a second straight week, while Antone Smith filled in with the starters, and Devonta Freeman didn't register a touch until the final three minutes of the first half. Though he's fourth on the depth chart, Freeman could emerge as a threat to Rodgers' touches this season. If Jackson's injury unexpectedly lingers into the regular season, Rodgers will likely split the workload with Smith and/or Freeman, the latter of whom has been the most impressive of the bunch this preseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Starting in place of Steven Jackson (hamstring), Rodgers had 20 yards and a touchdown on seven carries in Friday's preseason opener against the Dolphins. Impact: Rookie fourth-rounder Devonta Freeman is thought to be the biggest threat to Rodgers' workload this season, but it was Antone Smith who spelled Jacquizz with the first-team offense. While the Falcons are optimistic that Steven Jackson (hamstring) will be ready for Week 1, the 31-year-old veteran has a history of similar injuries. If Jackson doesn't make it back in time for the start of the season, Rodgers will likely be used in tandem with Smith and/or Freeman. The biggest concern for prospective Rodgers owners is still that Freeman could eat into the veteran's third-down workload.(RotoWire, )
