2020 RTSports Outlook

A new offense wasn't a big positive for Rodgers. His numbers were down, finishing 11th overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He threw for just over 4,000 yards and had 27 total touchdowns to four interceptions. He had fewer than 20 fantasy points 10 of 16 games. He was a lot more mediocre for fantasy teams than you have come to expect. Rodgers still has plenty left in the tank at 36, but needs help around him in the passing game to produce better numbers. The receiver position has really struggled in Green Bay outside of Davante Adams. Rodgers has more than 30 total touchdowns eight of 12 seasons. Rodgers also has at least 200-rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns nine of the last 12 seasons. This part of his game can be overlooked, but is a real asset. Rodgers has a great arm and is extremely accurate. He makes plays with his feet and is normally very durable.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Rodgers was seventh in fantasy quarterback scoring the previous season, so his numbers seem more of a trend than a fluke after finishing 11th last year. Rodgers isn't quite that elite option of past years. It would not surprise to see his numbers trend up some this year but don't expect the huge numbers of past years. He is not a top-five fantasy quarterback anymore. Look for around 4,000 yards, 30 total touchdowns and 200-rushing yards.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers doesn't get to call his own shots at the draft, but if he did, chances are he'd have done something other than pick his future replacement and a third running back with the team's first two selections in 2020. Last year wasn't Rodgers' best statistical season by any stretch of the imagination, but the fact that he was able to throw for 4,002 yards and 26 touchdowns with a receiving corps that might as well have included Davante Adams and no one else might make 2019 one of his most impressive. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, that's more of a testament to Rodgers' value on an actual football field than in Sunday lineups. Green Bay did not adequately address its holes in the WR corps this offseason, meaning Adams is still the only downfield threat worth trusting at Lambeau. The Packers also ran the ball effectively and played admirably on defense in 2019, and their coaching staff won't be in a hurry to abandon such a formula after it resulted in a 13-3 record. The reality this creates from a fantasy standpoint is that Rodgers is no longer a guaranteed top-tier option at quarterback, and is better viewed as a high-floor pick. Depending on how we approach this reality on draft day, it could actually be a good thing. In the old days, you had to be one of the first two or three people in your league to draft a quarterback if you wanted Rodgers. At the moment, he's coming off the board in the seventh round as QB8 in 12-team, one-QB leagues, just behind Josh Allen. We can appropriately weigh his relative lack of pass-catching options while also acknowledging he's still Aaron Rodgers. The seventh round could turn out to be tremendous value for the future Hall-of-Famer if we're ready to strike the quarterback market at that juncture of the draft. Rodgers might not carry your fantasy team to the championship, but he's also not going to sink your lineup in any given week. And he's sure to win you a few here and there.

Player Notes

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers recorded 1,222 yards, 12 touchdowns and two interceptions on passes of traveled at least 20 yards during the 2019 regular season and postseason.

Fantasy Spin: Rodgers has thrown at least 25 touchdowns in five of the last six seasons and has eight career 4,000-yard seasons. He continues to be a top NFL quarterback and will be a must-start fantasy option every week.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray led the league in percentage of passing attempts behind the line of scrimmage in 2019 at 21.4 percent (minimum 200 attempts). San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (20.5), Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (20 and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (20) were the other quarterbacks who finished over 20 percent last season.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur is looking for his offense to find more explosive plays under quarterback Aaron Rodgers in 2020, the coach admitted on ESPN Wisconsin's Wilde & Tausch. The Packers ranked 19th in explosive-play rate in 2019, according to Sharp Football Stats. However, other than free-agent addition Devin Funchess in the passing game, the Packers didn't really give Rodgers any added help outside of receiver Davante Adams and running back Aaron Jones. It will be on LaFleur to scheme up more explosive situations this year, but it definitely helps to have Rodgers throwing the passes, even if he's getting older. What's certain is that the Packers will need someone besides Adams and Jones to step up for Rodgers to hold off the naysayers.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers led the league with 109 pass attempts behind the line of scrimmage and ranked second in attempts of at least 20 yards with 102. Conversely, he finished 15th in attempts between zero and 10 yards (236) and 18th on throws between 10 and 20 yards (100).

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has heaped praise on the young collection of receivers behind No. 1 target Davante Adams. Most notably has been Allen Lazard, the former undrafted free agent who didn't make the roster last year out of camp, but who ended up becoming the No. 2 behind Adams by season's end. "Hes just a great teammate, and ascending player, loved his approach every week and he made some big-time plays for us," Rodgers said. Reggie Begelton, who signed out of the CFL in January, may be a wild card of the group. Head coach Matt LaFleur has been impressed with Begelton during the virtual program, but he still remains a long shot to contribute consistently in 2020 despite the lack of a receiver depth in Green Bay. Lazard will be a popular late-round sleeper pick because of Rodgers' growing trust in him.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers attempted 88 passes that traveled at least 20 yards in the air in 2019 - second only to former Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston (102) - according to ESPN's Matt Bowen.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur reiterated that QB Aaron Rodgers is the leader of the Packers. 'This is Aaron's team. He's our leader. He's our captain,' LaFleur said.

Fantasy Spin: While the Packers added a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft and there has been a media buzz around Rodgers' future with the team, have no question that ARod is the QB1 of the Pack for 2020 (and likely the next few years) barring some massive turn of events. He remains a QB1 in fantasy football drafts, too.

From TheHuddle

May 15 5:00pm ET

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, 36, said "the goal is to play into my 40s. That hasn't changed." In his first public comments since the Packers shocked everyone by trading up within the first round to take quarterback Jordan Love, Rodgers also said "he didn't get asked to be drafted by the Packers. He's not to blame at all. Had a good conversation with him the day after the draft. I'm excited to work with him." Rodgers acknowledges that the Love pick was out of his control, and the goal that he will play into his 40s with the Packers "may not be a reality at this point." The future Hall of Famer didn't have much to work with through the air outside of Davante Adams last year, and Green Bay didn't address the position at all in the draft. Most fantasy owners won't be as quick to draft Rodgers as a high-end QB1 in 2020 because of his down 2019 and the lack of weapons around him. That could make him a great value pick if he can find a way to bounce back.

From RotoBaller

May 13 12:49pm ET

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 68.6 percent of his passes, threw for an average of 313.7 yards and sported a 10:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio in the four games last season WR Davante Adams missed due to a high-ankle sprain. In 12 games with Adams, Rodgers was a 59.9 percent passer, threw for 228.9 yards and sported a 16:3 TD-to-INT ratio.

Fantasy Spin: The explanation(s) may not be as difficult as one might think or as easy as saying Rodgers was a better quarterback without Adams around. Three of the four defenses Rodgers faced without Adams owned some of the worst secondaries in the league when the teams met. It's also fair to assume Rodgers forced more than his fair share of throws to Adams upon his return considering the latter had 10 or more targets in eight of his final nine games. Adams should be considered a strong candidate to finish as the highest-scoring receiver in fantasy this season, while Rodgers should serve as a low-end QB1.

From TheHuddle

Apr 28 4:10pm ET

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has "simply had enough of Aaron Rodgers' act and wanted to change the narrative" after a puzzling draft last weekend that saw the team select zero wide receivers in one of the most stacked classes of all time, in the opinion of The Athletic's Bob McGinn. Green Bay also traded up in the first round to take quarterback Jordan Love, a signal that the team is looking to a future without Rodgers in the picture. After all, Rodgers is 36 years old and is coming off two straight mediocre seasons by his standards. The future Hall of Famer will certainly be determined in 2020, but can he improve if nobody steps up behind receiver Davante Adams. Rodgers' stock as a high-end QB1 has taken a hit the last few seasons.

Apr 26 8:43pm ET

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers received a vote of confidence from head coach Matt LaFleur. 'Aaron is a pro, and he's the leader of our football team, and I anticipate that for a really long time,' LaFleur said Saturday, April 25. 'I have so much respect for him not only as a player but the person, and some of the stuff that nobody sees. So I can't tell you how much I like working with him.' LaFleur went on to state, 'You know how this league works. I know you guys get tired of me saying this, but it's about getting better each and every day and we're going to take it week to week. In my mind, I think Aaron is by far the best quarterback I've ever been around. I think he's the best ever to play the game. I hope he can play until he decides he doesn't want to play anymore.'

Fantasy Spin: There's not wiggle room in what LaFleur said, but one always must be slightly skeptical anytime an NFL coach opens his mouth to talk about a touchy subject that involves his superstar quarterback. Rodgers, 36, enters the NFL's 2020 fantasy football season as a fringe No. 1 quarterback. He's more of a weekly matchup decision in an offense that is content to churn out yardage the hard way and hasn't improved suspect receiving depth.

From TheHuddle

Apr 26 12:50pm ET

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur denied that the team selecting quarterback Jordan Love in the first round meant that quarterback Aaron Rodgers' time with the team was nearing an end. "Aaron is a pro, and he's the leader of our football team, and I anticipate that for a really long time," LaFleur said. "I have so much respect for him not only as a player but the person, and some of the stuff that nobody sees. So I can't tell you how much I like working with him." LaFleur continued to praise Rodgers, but the bottom line is that Green Bay was preparing for the future with this draft, and they could go to a more run-heavy approach in 2020 after not drafting a any receivers after Rodgers struggled last year with mainly just Davante Adams. Rodgers can still be a QB1 for fantasy owners, but that high-end upside might be gone.

The Green Bay Packers have used the 208th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft on Oregon center Jake Hanson. Green Bay is set at center in the short term with Corey Linsley, but Linsley is in the final year of a three-year contract extension, so its not out of the question that a good showing from Hanson in practice and the preseason could land him a starting role in 2021. Hes not the most powerful lineman, but he has the mobility to earn a role protecting quarterbackAaron Rodgersor Jordan Loveif hes starting in Green Bay a year or two from now.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has received little help from the team's draft picks through the third round Friday, April 24, and one national media outlet suggests the Packers are prodding Rodgers toward a 'divorce.' Trading Rodgers now would result in a $45.9 million cap charge, but waiting until after June 1 would result in only $14.352 million hitting the cap in 2020.

Fantasy Spin: Rodgers has been a top-five fantasy QB in five of the last six seasons and helped guide Green Bay to the NFC title game a season ago. And while Rodgers hasn't commented publicly yet on the team's current draft, those who know him best expect some definite vitriol, and Rodgers asking for a trade might not be out of the question. Stay tuned ...

From TheHuddle

Apr 25 11:40am ET

The Green Bay Packers are reportedly moving to more of a run-oriented attack in 2020, according to an agent. The agent didn't expect the Packers to do much on the free-agent wide receiver market because of this, and if Green Bay's 2020 draft is any indication so far, that might be true. The Packers surprisingly traded up to take Utah State quarterback Jordan Love late in the first round on Thursday, and they took a running back in Round 2 and a tight end in Round 3. Davante Adams was quarterback Aaron Rodgers' only real receiving threat last year, so perhaps Green Bay has decided to lean more heavily on Aaron Jones and the rushing attack. The pick of A.J. Dillon would seem to back that up in the second round over a receiver. If that's the case, Rodgers' stock as a high-end QB1 could be in danger as he gets closer to the end of his career.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is 'pissed off' with the team trading up and selecting QB Jordan Love in the first round of the NFL Draft, NFL reporter Peter King told a Boston radio station Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Spin: Rodgers, 36, has been a top-10 fantasy QB in five of the last seasons, and likely was hoping for another WR or TE weapon Thursday night, but instead saw the team draft his presumed successor. NFL Nation will be highly interested to see how this plays out this offseason.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was charged with a 'bad throw' on a league-high 21.2 percent of his passes in 2019.

From TheHuddle

Mar 6 2:03pm ET

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said Friday, March 6, that he wouldn't mind if the team drafted a quarterback this spring. 'I'm a realist; I know where we're at as an org and I know where I'm at my career,' Rodgers told ESPN Milwaukee. He added that it doesn't matter who comes in, 'I'm confident (he is) not going to beat me out anytime soon' but would like to bring in players who could 'come in and help us right away.'

Fantasy Spin: Rodgers, 36, remained a low-end QB1, but he just topped 4,000 passing yards (4,002) while throwing 26 TD passes and his 7.0 yards-per-attempt average matched the second-lowest season mark since he became a starter in 2008. Regardless, he figures to be the unquestioned starter in Green Bay for at least another season or two.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' eventual replacement could be selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst. 'It's a good crop this year,' Gutekunst said. 'It's a good group of quarterbacks. I think it's a little deeper than it has been in the past. It will be interesting.'
