Dwyane Wade was inactive for the Miami Heat against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night, the fourth game that the All-Star guard has missed this season because of soreness and a need for rest.
Just like the Packers' offense, fantasy owners with Rodgers on their team are going to experience a dip in production. Even with Rodgers having a "mediocre" year, it's unlikely the backup can fill the void. If you're lucky enough to have Tony Romo or Matthew Stafford, good drafting. If not, good luck trying to grab Case Keenum or Nick Foles off the waiver wire.
Moves to consider in the wake of injuries to Jay Cutler, Reggie Wayne, Sam Bradford, Doug Martin and Jermichael Finley.
Packers tight end Jermichael Finley suffered a significant neck injury in the win over the Browns and needs more tests to determine the severity.
New England had defeated New York in six straight regular-season meetings, and saw its 12-game winning streak against the AFC East end.

Eddie Lacy rushed for 120 yards to fuel the Packers' first road win of the season. Green Bay (3-2) took a 16-3 lead into the fourth quarter and was up 19-10 with 4 minutes left, but the Ravens (3-3) kept coming back.
"You can't really practice [tackling] a lot," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "You're only allowed to have pads on one day a week. And normally you don't take people to the ground But what you do, is you do have the sense of urgency to have your gap responsibility."
The Redskins went to Lambeau Field holding fast to the image of the team they were at the end of last season, when they rallied to win the NFC East and reach the playoffs. That notion was shredded by the Green Bay Packers in a humbling 38-20 loss on Sunday afternoon.
The District has reached the final countdown in its quest for budget autonomy. Almost over is a waiting period of 35 legislative days during which Congress could attempt to derail a voter-approved charter amendment that lets the city set its own fiscal calendar and spend its own local tax dollars without congressional approval.
DuJuan Harris had a very good reason for missing the Green Bay Packers minicamp.
D.C. residents overwhelmingly cast ballots Tuesday to give the city budget autonomy from Congress, but supporters will be crossing their fingers while counting down the 35 legislative-day period during which federal lawmakers could attempt to derail the approved charter amendment.
It's been a running joke with Mike Miller for much of this season. He comes into the Miami Heat locker room before games, sees the jersey hanging in his stall and wonders aloud why someone went to the trouble of putting it there.
Elvis Dumervil was staying with the Denver Broncos.
"I don't think there will be a disapproval resolution again. It's not going to happen," Mr. Jones said. "It's too difficult. You can't get anything through Congress as it is."
"We have no specific information about anyone in Congress who is lining us up in their sight," he said.
