2019 Outlook: Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers was a disappointment in 2018, but he has the chance to be among the best rebound candidates this year. He's worth drafting as one of the top three quarterbacks with Patrick Mahomes and Andrew Luck as early as Round 3, and it would not be a surprise to see Rodgers finish as the best Fantasy quarterback this season. In 2018, Rodgers struggled and finished as the No. 9 Fantasy quarterback with 4,442 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and two interceptions, as well as 269 rushing yards and two touchdowns. It's the fewest touchdown passes he's ever thrown while playing in at least 15 games. But he had a legitimate excuse for his struggles. Rodgers revealed in April that he played last season on a sprained left knee, as well as a broken leg. He suffered the injury in the first half of Week 1 against Chicago, which was diagnosed as a tibial plateau fracture and sprained MCL. Still, he was out there every week, but he scored at least 20 Fantasy points just nine times -- and only had more than 25 points five times. That's not why you draft Rodgers. You draft Rodgers for 30-plus Fantasy points on a regular basis, and hopefully that happens this season, especially with a new coach in Matt LaFleur. Don't be afraid to buy back in on Rodgers in 2019.
