FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
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.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is in danger of missing Week 1 with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. However, our very own Bill Huber from Packer Report wrote an excellent article explain why Cobb will be ready for Week 1. His research points to Cobb being active when the season kicks off. That game is 14 days away. For a recent comparable, Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson suffered a similar injury at practice on Aug. 6. He returned to practice on Aug. 23 — 17 days later — but has not played in the preseason. However, in a 2013 study of more than 720 NFL players sustaining AC sprains over the span of 12 seasons, the average time missed for players not requiring surgery was 9.8 days. Based on that timeline, Cobb would have the full practice week to get ready for Chicago."
This is great news and an excellent report. The Packers desperately need Cobb for the season opener. He is now the WR1 with no truly proven wideouts behind him. After Jordy Nelson tore his ACL, Cobb's ADP spiked and rightfully so. He's now being drafted as the WR7. This is a fair price when you consider he's now Aaron Rodgers undisputed best option.
