Green Bay Packers

By Rob Warner, Friday, September 12, 2014

ONE OF THE BEST: A broken collarbone cost Rodgers seven games last season. The 30-year-old Cal alum averaged 282 yards passing per game and finished with 17 touchdowns and six interceptions over nine games. Rodgers missed just two games over the previous five seasons and should continue to challenge Peyton Manning and Drew Brees for the top spot among fantasy signal callers. Last season, Rodgers, the master of the discount double check, had four games with at least 25 fantasy points. That is the same pace as 2012 (nine games with 25 or more points). With a healthy offensive line in place, Rodgers could very well finish as the No. 1 fantasy QB. There aren't many signal-callers with more consistent production when you consider that he has 20 or more fantasy points in 73-percent of games over the past three seasons.

Editor's note: Rodgers could easily have another decade ahead of him as the leader of this offense. The receiver group isn't what it was just a few seasons ago; however, it should be clear that Green Bay can move the chains with just about anybody who can create a little separation. If you can draft Rodgers, Manning or Brees, you're in the clear for the rest of the season. This guy is elite and everybody knows it.
