Aaron Rodgers Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • The Packers failed to significantly bolster Rodgers’ weaponry this offseason, adding only free-agent WR Devin Funchess.
  • Despite a lackluster supporting cast, Rodgers still finished 11th among QBs in fantasy points last year.
  • There’s enough here for another lower-end QB1 season in 2020, especially if Rodgers gets a healthy season from Davante Adams, who missed 4 games last year.

Supporting cast

Don’t write Rodgers’ fantasy obituary just yet.

Yes, it was a rough offseason. He needed help in the pass-catching corps and didn’t get it. The Packers added another RB in the 2nd round of the NFL draft. And that was after trading up in the 1st to draft QB Jordan Love, Rodgers’ likely successor.

But will Rodgers’ supporting cast be worse than it was last year? Doubtful. He’ll hopefully get a healthier season from WR Davante Adams, who missed 4 games in 2019. WR Allen Lazard might be emerging as a solid #2 WR after compiling a 35-477-3 line over the final 11 games of last season. Green Bay added free-agent WR Devin Funchess, who has scored 21 times in 62 career games and is still just 26. 2nd-year TE Jace Sternberger might be an upgrade over 33-year-old Jimmy Graham. And the Packers return a couple of strong pass-catching backs in Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.

2019 in review

Is it a great group? Nope. But even if it’s just as good as last year, Rodgers can produce QB1 numbers. He did it last year, ranking 11th among QBs in fantasy points. The production was uneven. Rodgers finished outside the top 20 QBs in 9 of his 16 outings. But he also turned in 4 top-3 finishes.

Rodgers’ 4,002 passing yards ranked 11th league-wide. His 26 passing TDs were good for 8th. He also continued to add value on the ground, rushing for 183 yards and score.

Now, Rodgers did underwhelm with a 62.0% completion rate and 7.0 yards per attempt. The former was his 2nd-lowest mark among 12 seas…
