Player Outlook
Do back-to-back NFL MVPs get taken outside of the top 12 at their position very often? The answer is no, but that's the scope of what Aaron Rodgers' Fantasy value is following an offseason that saw him lose his favorite target in Davante Adams. Without him, the Packers are left with a number of young receivers (Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Amari Rodgers) and some old vets too (Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, Randall Cobb). Rodgers has not seen any notable decline in his ability, and the Packers have continued to revamp and replenish his offensive line, but it'll take a small leap to count on him for big numbers when his passing game lacks experience and proven explosiveness. Other quarterbacks offer way more in terms of rushing ability and receiver talent. While this means you should expect Rodgers to fall on Draft Day, you should also consider him a terrific value as a start-worthy quarterback you can find after the likes of Joe Burrow and Dak Prescott are gone. We'd take him after Round 8 in one-QB leagues but definitely settle for him toward the end of Round 2 or beginning of Round 3 in two-QB and Superflex formats.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Sitting out preseason opener

    Coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that Rodgers won't play during Friday's preseason contest against San Francisco, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Rodgers didn't play a single snap last preseason, so it's no surprise to see Jordan Love be handed the reins for Friday's matchup. However, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, LaFleur said the team still is considering allowing Rodgers to see the field during the Packers' final preseason matchup, Aug. 25 at Kansas City. The veteran quarterback could benefit from some additional reps with his revamped receiving corps, which includes newcomers like Sammy Watkins, Romeo Doubs and Christian Watkins (knee), in addition to incumbents Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Will make offseason debut Tuesday

    Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Rodgers will participate in Tuesday's mandatory minicamp after skipping the team's voluntary OTAs, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. While Rodgers skipped OTAs, LaFleur noted that he still was in communication with the reigning MVP about the offseason game plan during the quarterback's time away from the team. Regardless, Rodgers' absence still sparked speculation due to his grievances with Green Bay's front office during the prior two offseasons. However, after signing a four-year extension in March, the veteran quarterback appears to be content with the current position of the Packers, even after they traded Davante Adams this offseason.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Not with team for OTAs

    Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday that Rodgers is currently not at voluntary OTAs, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. LaFleur added that he doesn't know if the quarterback will join the team next week or not and stated, "it'll be Rodgers' choice." While the reigning MVP isn't with the team, his current situation seems to be less volatile than the last two offseasons after he signed a four-year extension in March. LaFleur said he talked to the QB on Monday about tweaks to the offense and said Rodgers was in "good spirits," so it appears he is still heavily involved in the game plan even while he's away from the team.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Down top target after Adams trade

    Rodgers lost top target Davante Adams on Thursday when the Packers agreed to trade the wide receiver to the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. After one domino fell in Green Bay last week when Rodgers agreed to return for an 18th season, the team proceeded to place the franchise tag on Adams. The wide receiver informed the Packers that he wouldn't play under the tag, and even as Rodgers negotiated and signed a four-year extension he was made aware that his employers were exploring trades for Adams, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. With Adams out the door, the team now is in the market for additions to the receiving corps with just Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb the known entities at the position.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Finalizes extension

    Rodgers signed a four-year extension with the Packers on Tuesday, though the deal includes two "dummy" years, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. It took one week to finalize a contract after Rodgers confirmed last Tuesday he'd return to the Packers for 2022. His new deal includes $150.6 million guaranteed, and while it may be more akin to a two-year extension for practical purposes, this at least suggests Rodgers plans to stay in Green Bay through 2023 or 2024. The team can now focus on star wideout Davante Adams, who reportedly informed the Packers that he won't play out the 2022 season under a franchise tag (the two sides have until July 15 to negotiate a multi-year contract).

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Deal in the works

    The Packers and Rodgers are still working out a new deal that will keep him with the team in 2022, while lowering the quarterback's salary cap hit for the coming season in the process, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Though Rodgers confirmed Tuesday that he will indeed play for Green Bay in 2022, he indicated that a new contract has yet to be finalized. Moreover, Rodgers suggested that a previous report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network outlining the terms of the looming agreement weren't accurate. In any case, the star signal-caller will be back for another season with the team that drafted him in 2004. Rodgers will also be in line to continue throwing to his favorite target in Davante Adams, who received the team's franchise tag Tuesday.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Confirms return to Green Bay

    Rodgers confirmed Tuesday via his personal Twitter account that he's returning to the Packers for the 2022 season. Having said that, Rodgers refuted a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that he agreed to a four-year, $200 million extension. In any case, Rodgers is back in the saddle with the Packers and is expected to be joined by his favorite target Davante Adams, who is slated to receive the franchise tag from the team by Tuesday's 4:00 p.m. EST deadline. Coming off back-to-back MVP campaigns, Rodgers is set up to remain productive as he enters his age-39 season.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Stays in Green Bay on massive deal

    Rodgers agreed to terms Tuesday with the Packers on a four-year, $200 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The deal includes $153 million guaranteed, making Rodgers the highest-paid player in NFL history, per Rapoport. After a drama-filled offseason in 2021, Rodgers agreed to rework his contract last summer under the condition that the team would revisit his status heading into 2022. Rodgers, who claimed his second straight NFL MVP award last season before the Packers fell to the 49ers in the divisional round of the playoffs, reportedly considered retirement earlier this offseason in addition to evaluating his options with other teams, but he ultimately concluded that sticking around in Green Bay was in his best interest. Now that he's agreed to a lavish new contract with the Packers, the organization can turn its focus to addressing other areas of the roster ahead of the 2022 season. With Rodgers running it back with Green Bay, top wideout Davante Adams now looks all but guaranteed to receive the team's franchise tag ahead of Tuesday's deadline, though the tag may just serve as a placeholder until a longer-term extension is reached. On the other hand, 2020 first-round pick Jordan Love's future on the roster becomes less certain.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Nothing new on decision

    The Packers have not engaged with other teams regarding potential trades for Rodgers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. In what appears to be the latest chapter of the Rodgers saga, conflicting reports surfaced late Friday evening and into Saturday morning that the four-time MVP was truly torn on whether or not he'd want to return to the Packers, and that teams were lining up to acquire the superstar QB. That evidently is not the case according to Schefter and the report was also backed up by Matt Schneidman of The Athletic. There's still optimism from Green Bay's front office Rodgers will eventually make his decision before the new league year begins March 16, but it seems fair to assume should the 39-year-old opt to cut ties with the only franchise he's ever been apart of, numerous teams will be eager to bid for his services.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Decision hoped for by March 16

    Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said Tuesday that there are "no new updates" regarding Rodgers' situation, but he hopes to have an update by the new league year March 16, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported earlier Tuesday that the two sides are in negotiations for what is expected to be a short-term contract that would make Rodgers the highest-paid player in the NFL. Despite rumors that the 38-year-old may consider requesting a trade or could be on the trading block, Gutekunst relayed that "not one" general manager has reached out to him asking about Rodgers' availability. However, there is still some speculation as to whether or not the back-to-back MVP winner will even play football next season. Either way, it sounds like the Packers hope that Rodgers will make a decision before long, with the hope that it'll jumpstart their offseason plans.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Reportedly in contract talks

    Rodgers and the Packers are in negotiations for what is expected to be a short-term contract if the star quarterback decides to remain with the team. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Per Rapoport, if such a deal transpires, it would make the QB the highest-paid player in the NFL. While the report is encouraging from Green Bay's perspective, any potential agreement hinges on Rodgers committing to remain with the franchise that drafted back him in 2004. Until that occurs, it remains possible that the 38-year-old could consider retirement or request a trade, but at this stage Rapoport suggests that things appear to be heading in a good direction with regard to the chances of an agreement occurring between the two sides.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Relationship with team in good place

    Rodgers' "relationship [with the Packers] is in as good a spot as it has been in quite a long time," creating optimism from both sides that he'll remain in Green Bay for the 2022 season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After Rodgers chose not to report to training camp on time last offseason due to his acrimonious relationship with the Green Bay front office, speculation abounded that the Packers would look to trade the longtime franchise quarterback. Though the Packers were able to temporarily cool tensions last July by reworking his contract and agreeing to revisit possible trade discussions during the upcoming offseason, Rodgers no longer seems adamant about moving on from the organization. While Green Bay's season ended with a disappointing loss to San Francisco in the divisional round, Rodgers guided the team to an NFL-best 13-4 record and took home his fourth MVP award. When he accepted the award Thursday, Rodgers notably thanked Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst and team president Mark Murphy, then told NFL Network after the ceremony that he's had "good conversations with Green Bay" about working out a new deal. As a result of having his deal restructured last summer, the 2022 portion of Rodgers' contract was voided. Green Bay will have the option of using its franchise tag on Rodgers for the upcoming season, but Rapoport relays that the Packers are looking to keep him in the fold on a two-year deal worth more than $45 million annually.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Earns another MVP award

    Rodgers was named Most Valuable Player for the 2021 season Thursday. Rodgers was named MVP for the second consecutive season and for the fourth time in his career. Though he was outperformed in metrics such as yards and touchdowns, Rodgers was rewarded for his accuracy and ability to protect the ball. He threw only four interceptions -- the lowest mark of any regular starter this season -- and also posted a stellar 68.9 completion percentage. Rodgers also led the Packers to a successful regular season, highlighted by a 13-4 record and the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Despite all of that success, it's not yet clear whether he will be under center in Green Bay to begin the 2022 campaign.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Could decide future soon

    Rodgers suggested Tuesday that he'll make a decision on his NFL future well before the start of the new league year in mid-March, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Rodgers said it would be "disrespectful to the organization" if he waited until the start of free agency to make a decision. He still has one year remaining on his contract, and while there was some thought he'd try to force a trade this offseason, Rodgers could also retire or stick around with the Packers. It'll be an interesting few months in Green Bay, to say the least, with top receiver Davante Adams likely getting the franchise tag as his contract expires. Of course, if Rodgers wants out of Green Bay, the team might try to tag-and-trade Adams rather than use the tag as a bridge to a contract extension.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Solid performance not enough

    Rodgers completed 20 of 29 passes for 225 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions during the Packers' 13-10 loss to the 49ers in their NFC divisional-round matchup Saturday night. He also committed a fumble that was recovered by Green Bay. Rodgers' numbers were underwhelming from a fantasy perspective due to the complete absence of touchdowns. The future Hall of Famer also couldn't follow up a very efficient first quarter with enough production the rest of the way, not leading another scoring drive until a 14-play, 57-yard march early in the fourth quarter that culminated in a Mason Crosby 33-yard field goal. Those points would prove to be the final ones of the night for Green Bay, with the Packers going backward on their final three plays before punting the ball over to the 49ers and never getting it back. The heartbreaking and abrupt finish to a season in which he and his teammates squandered the NFC's No. 1 seed could be an intriguing factor in Rodgers' plans for 2022, considering he'd seemingly softened his offseason stance on wanting to play elsewhere for what would be the potential final year of his contract as this past successful regular season unfolded.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Logs full practice Tuesday

    Rodgers (toe) was a full practice participant Tuesday. In his previous media availability last Wednesday, Rodgers relayed that his left pinkie toe fracture wouldn't be a problem for him during the playoffs. With the Packers set to open their postseason run Saturday versus the 49ers, he opened the week of prep without limitations on the practice field, a change from the norm that had been established since he sustained the injury. Stretching back to Week 11, Rodgers has put together 1,929 yards, 20 touchdowns and no interceptions in his last seven games.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Ready for start

    Rodgers (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Rodgers has played some of the best football of his career while dealing with the toe injury, and he wants to continue in Week 18 even with the Packers locked in for the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed Friday that Rodgers will start Sunday, though LaFleur wasn't much help in terms of expectations for playing time, merely saying it would be based on how the game goes. Anything from a couple drives to a full game is thus in play, making Rodgers a high-risk, high-reward fantasy play for Week 18.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Confirmed for Week 18 start

    Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed Rodgers will start Sunday's game against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Playing a full game is another matter, with the Packers locked in for the NFC's No. 1 seed. LaFleur didn't provide much in terms of hints, simply saying he'll see how the game goes before making any decisions on pulling starters. That leaves Rodgers as a risky Week 18 fantasy option, albeit with huge upside in a dome game against a bad defense.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Practicing Thursday

    Rodgers (toe) took part in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. It's rare for Rodgers to get practice reps on Fridays since he was diagnosed with a broken toe in mid-November. Now with an appearance on the field on a Thursday, he appears to be the healthiest he's been in some time and will log at least a limited session. The bigger question surrounding Rodgers for a Week 18 visit to Detroit is how much he'll play Sunday, which coach Matt LaFleur indicated Wednesday would be based off "feel," per Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

  • Packers' Aaron Rodgers: No practice Wednesday

    Rodgers (toe) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports. Rodgers made a rare appearance at practice last Friday, mixing in as a limited participant. It was his first notable practice activity since Week 14, but the fractured toe hasn't stopped him from producing on game days, as he's accounted for 1,791 yards, 18 touchdowns and no interceptions with a 71.6 percent completion rate over the last six contests. With the NFC's No. 1 seed already locked up, the Packers may opt to hold Rodgers out or limit his snap count Sunday at Detroit. Speaking to the media Wednesday, head coach Matt LaFleur said "if and when" he removes the starters from the game will be based off "feel," according to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. As a result, it appears Rodgers will make a Week 18 cameo, at the very least.
