Outlook: It’s hard to judge the 2017 Green Bay Packers because QB Aaron Rodgers, the team’s best player, only played seven games. This year’s team will be judged hyper-critically as the team let top receiver Jordy Nelson go to Oakland as a free agent. Questions abound on both offense and defense with this team, but with Rodgers at the helm, the Packers are always in playoff contention.

QB: There is little doubt that Aaron Rodgers will be inducted in the Hall of Fame about five to six years after his retirement. But until that time, Rodgers is going to try to set as many passing records and play in as many Super Bowls as possible. When Rodgers is at his best, he can be counted on for about 4500+ passing yards, and close to 35-40 TD passes. Moreover, he has good mobility out of the pocket which always gives him a chance for about 300+ yards rushing and a few rushing TDs. That said, I still would not rush to draft Rodgers UNLESS I was in a league that gives 6 points per passing TD. If your league uses a 4 point per TD pass scoring system, as we use in the FFWC, Rodgers is probably no better than a Round 5-6 player. However, YOU know your league scoring system better than I do, so if Rodgers is extremely valuable in your league, I would push him up to a 2nd or 3rd round pick depending on your league’s scoring configuration.
