Fearless Forecast: 4190 PASS YDS, 30 PASS TD, 130 RUSH YDS, 2 RUSH TD, 5 INT
Projected Rank: 15
ANDY BEHRENS: Aaron Rodgers is coming off back-to-back MVPs. He rarely gives the ball away. He's inventive. He's efficient. We love him as a fantasy quarterback. We love him as a real-life quarterback. The problem here is that he's almost fresh out of receivers. A lot of trust is going to be placed in guys like Allen Lazard, Aaron Jones, some rookie wideouts, and whatever is left of Sammy Watkins. It's not a great group. Oh, and most of his offensive coaches are gone too. That happens with success, right?
This is still Aaron Rodgers though. He's still, obviously, a great quarterback, an inner circle Hall of Famer. I am a little bit concerned that this season could look a little bit more like, say, 2018 and 2019, which were highly efficient, he never gave the ball away, but they weren't particularly helpful for fantasy. So I'm going to forecast for him this year 4,190 passing yards, 30 passing touchdowns, let's give him 130 yards on the ground, with two rushing scores.
