Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers look to speed things up a bit this year. The goal has been set for the offense to run 75 plays per game. Last season they averaged 67 per game. (Source: ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: We are looking at approximately 27 additional passing yards per game from Rodgers, granted the offense runs 75 plays. For a QB who averaged 281 Y/G last season, an uptick from 281 to 308 yards may be the difference between a loss or a win for your team.
Plenty to love about Aaron Rodgers and the Packers this season. They feature elite options at QB, RB and WR, and plan to play as fast as any team in the league. Yep.. We are targeting the younger and more elusive Rodgers AHEAD of Peyton Manning in 2014
The top-tier for fantasy football quarterbacks is a three-headed monster that includes Rodgers along with Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Due to health factors and inconsistency at times, Rodgers still falls short compared to the other two heading into 2014, but has the talent to rank as #1 when all is said and done.
Rodgers was the 22nd ranked fantasy quarterback, thanks to playing only half of a season. Reports are that he is in terrific shape and the Packers want to play a fast paced offense that runs 75 plays per game. That should help Rodgers and RB Eddie Lacy both have monster seasons.
