Rodgers - whose side came back from a goal down to draw 1-1 at Chelsea on Sunday but are 15 points behind leaders Manchester United - has said he needs to bring in reinforcements to help a team that has won only twice in the league so far.
"This was our sixth draw of the season, and we need one or two more players in the January transfer window to turn those draws into victories," the Anfield manager said.
"But those players don't come cheap, and there won't be too many available in January.
"The owners have given me great support since I've been here but, if you're not going to have a massive investment to make it happen quickly - we have to develop it."
He said the players were "giving us everything" but added: "Hopefully, we can add to this group in the window, and next season we'll be better for it."
Rodgers admitted that Liverpool were "a long way off" in the league and said he would not pretend they were challengers.
"You don't need to be a rocket scientist to see that," he said. "We finished eighth last season, and it will be fantastic if we can improve on that.
"That's the reality of where Liverpool are, I'm afraid, and it can't be easy for our supporters to accept that."
He praised the club's fans for being "lenient" with both himself and the team, adding: "I knew it would be a difficult year, given the expectations around this club.
"We all know of Liverpool's great history, but we can't keep looking backwards in the rear view mirror. We have to look forward."
