2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-26-2015 by Shawn Childs

Aaron has a 70-33 career record with one Super Bowl title. Over those 103 starts, Rodgers has 225 passing TDs (2.2 per game). Although he's thrown more than 550 passes only once, his value is created by his high yards-per-attempt average (8.3 in 2014, 8.2 for his career) and penchant for throwing touchdowns (three seasons with 38 or more). Aaron battled a quad injury last year, which led to fewer rushing attempts (43 carries for 269 and two scores). Rodgers did most of his damage at home in 2014. Five of his eight 300-yard outings and 21 of his 38 passing TDs came at Lambeau Field. Aaron left some stats on the table as Green Bay just crushed most opponents when at home, averaging close to 40 points per game. His 65.6 completion rate was in line with his career resume, and Aaron has been one of the most accurate quarterbacks over the past six seasons. Rodgers has five 4,000-yard campaigns. There's no doubt Fantasy owners are well aware of his elite upside, but the challenge is determining if his success can be matched by another QB who will be available later in your draft. An owner then needs to weigh the upside of the RBs, WRs and TEs who get drafted around Rodgers. A Cowboys-Raiders-Cardinals finish in Weeks 14-16 offers big-time potential during the Fantasy playoffs. I expect him to put up 40-plus TDs and 4,500 passing yards in what should be a fun ride.

Jul-04-15 Packers TE Andrew Quarless arrested for discharging a firearm in public

Packers' tight end Andrew Quarless was arrested in Miami early Saturday morning after firing his gun into the ground twice and fleeing the scene. Police say he got involved in an altercation near Fourth Street and Washington Avenue at about 5:30 a.m. This led to him discharging his firearm and attempting to flee. Needless to say, his escape was foiled and he now faces potential felony charges. The report was confirmed by Miami Beach PD spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez. He has been cleared to release an incident report later today.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is not good news for Quarless. There is a very good chance his days with the Packers and perhaps even his days in the NFL could be done or in grave danger. Aside from facing potential jail time, he will almost certainly face discipline from the league. Quarless was named as a player that could make a big jump this season by Aaron Rodgers. The likelihood of that happening just took a major hit. If you are unfortunate to enough to be a Quarless owner, it is probably time to cut ties. In the NFL you're guilty until proven innocent under the tyrannical rule of Roger Goodell.
