"Who's mine [player of the year]? Luis Suarez. He has been phenomenal. That's not just an opinion as his manager," the Reds boss told reporters.
"Luis had to play as the only striker we had for six months and hasn't missed a single day of training. I couldn't look further than Luis."
Liverpool travel away to Roberto Martinez's Wigan side on Saturday looking to maintain the pressure on the teams above them as they remain in the hunt for a European spot and Rodgers revealed that the side could be without Daniel Sturridge for the trip while Raheem Sterling could be rested.
He added: "Daniel has had a little knock but we'll assess that in the next day and see how he is for the weekend.
"[Sterling] is a kid Sterling who's got huge talent. I've got to make sure I protect him. He'll need a wee rest, mentally and physically."
