Summary

2017 was not a banner year for Aaron Rodgers, and it goes deeper than the fact that he missed nine games due to injury. From 2014-2016, all seasons where Rodgers played 16 games, he averaged 6.6 interceptions per season. In seven games last year, Rodgers threw six interceptions. His completion rate (64.7%) while still elite among quarterbacks, was the second lowest percentage in his last eight seasons, and the same was true for his passing yards per game (239) and average fantasy points per game (22.9). Rodgers will also come into the 2018 season having lost his go-to wide receiver in Jordy Nelson (released and signed with the Raiders), and his longtime quarterback coach Alex Van Pelt, who was signed by the Bengals. Nelson did not produce well in 2017, and the Packers saved 10 million against the cap by releasing him, so it made sense. Van Pelt is another story, as Rodgers made an on the record comment that showed he was more than a little peeved that Van Pelt was let go without his knowledge or input. The good news is that Rodgers continued to rack up passing touchdowns in 2017 (2.2 per game) and still compares favorably to any other quarterback out there, so any perceived drop off was more a matter of him setting the bar so high in previous seasons. The Packers went out and signed Jimmy Graham in free agency, giving Rodgers another elite red zone option alongside Davante Adams. Additionally, Green Bay drafted wide receivers in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of the draft, taking J'Mon Moore (6'3), Marquez Valdez-Scalding (6'4) and Equanimeous St. Brown (6'5), respectively. With Green Bay looking very good at the running back position, as well as adding three big bodied rookie wide receivers (all of whom are 6'3 or taller) to battle it out with Geronimo Allison for the #3 wide receiver spot alongside Adams and Randall Cobb, Rodgers will once again have an embarrassment of riches at the skill positions. Assuming he stays healthy, Rodgers will once again regain his spot among the elite fantasy quarterbacks. (May 22)

Latest News

Packers | Aaron Rodgers should play this week (Mon Aug 13, 04:18 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to play in Week 2 of the preseason, although he is less likely to play in the last two preseason games.

Our View: Interesting to note they would play him in the second game more than the 'dress rehearsal' for the regular season aka week three of the preseason. Either way, the Packers are back in a Super Bowl window so long as Rodgers is their quarterback. Fantasy GMs are taking Rodgers at QB1 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
