Aaron Rodgers Player Profile

If you are interested in only the best quarterbacks, then this fantasy football Aaron Rodgers player profile should be just what you need. As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts.  When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper.  Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players.

It is important to note that I think quarterback is replaceable at the low end QB1 rankings.  When I evaluate quarterback prospects when drafting, I am looking for top three potential  This will skew my perspective.  Because I am gambling on upside, I tend to draft two quarterbacks and the quarterbacks I draft tend to be younger.

Fantasy Football Aaron Rodgers Overview: Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in football.  If you could have any quarterback on your fantasy roster, he should be your first choice.  The problem is, if you are drafting him at his current ADP, you are not getting a lot of value with your pick.  On a per-game basis, he’s only been in the top five three of the last five years.  And he’s only been the number one quarterback once.  If you are spending your second or third round pick on Aaron Rodgers, you should be able to have more confidence that he will end the year as the top quarterback.

Fantasy Football Aaron Rodgers Strategy:  Avoid taking Aaron Rodgers at his current ADP.  Jordan Howard, Joe Mixon, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Adam Theilen, LeSean McCoy, T.Y. Hilton and Doug Baldwin are all around his current ADP and present better positional value, because the drop off in talent at those positions is severe just one round later.  If he manages to fall to the late 4th/early 5th round, then you should consider taking him.

Ceiling: If you are lucky, he will be worth his ADP and he’ll be worth exactly what you paid for him.

Floor:  Barring injury, he’ll still end the year as a QB1.  Unfortunately, you will see other quarterbacks you could’ve taken later that end the season with more points.  When that happens, remember who warned you.
