Aaron Rodgers (Packers)
6’2, 225 lbs
Rodgers days of being drafted as the first fantasy QB are officially over. Last season he and head coach Mike McCarthy butted heads and it showed on the field. He still had a pretty good season and there is a reason for optimism heading into 2019. Last year A-Rod threw for 4443 yards with 25 TDs and only 2 INTs. That’s not a misprint, 2 INTs, and he also chipped in 269 rushing yards and 2 more TDs.
The new Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LeFleur will look to bring back the Rodgers of old, who was banged up last year with a tibial plateau fracture and a sprained MCL. While he is 35 years old, I saw enough to convince me he still has some gas left in the tank. Rodgers still has one of the strongest arms in the league, and when healthy he can still extend plays with his legs.
His supporting cast is pretty good with a star in Davante Adams, and youngsters Geronimo Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. The offensive line is legit, and if they establish the run, the play-action game should hit some big plays in 2019. The run game has struggled in the past but LaFleur should remedy that which in turn will help Rodgers.
He’s still one of the best QB’s in the game, and he’s coming off the board later than ever. He put up almost 4500 passing yards and 27 total TD’s while he was hurt. If he’s healthy, his ceiling is through the roof.
