ARod went 24/2 last season despite playing hurt and having a bad offensive system. There's no guarantee Matt Lafleur brings over a great offense after his struggles in Tennessee, but I am sure that he is going to let Rodgers fling it, which is great for fantasy purposes. He is about as safe as they come. 
Kevin Wheeler
DraftWize
Since 2015, however, the Packers have gone a cumulative 30-24-1 with Rodgers under center, and the QB hasn't been as sharp as he once was. Over the past four years, Rodgers's yards per passing attempt dropped more than a yard from his previous career average to 7.1,2 and his TD rate fell a percentage point to 5.6 percent. fivethirtyeight.com 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Rodgers looked like he could barely move last year after sustaining an early injury, but he played all 16 games and still posted the second-highest passing total of his career. Rodgers still has elite skills but will turn 36 years old this season, and has now battled injuries in back to back years. The firing of Mike McCarthy can only be a good thing, even if we have little idea what to expect from Matt LeFleur's system. And Rodgers will almost certainly be out to prove that it was McCarthy's, rather than his, failings that led to last year's sub-par effort. No longer the No. 1 fantasy quarterback, Rodgers should still likely bounce back and be a top-five option this year. 
Jason Petropoulos

Despite what looked like efficiency on the surface with 25 Tds and only 2 INTs, Aaron Rodgers was only 15 in True Throw Value last season. In fact, 8 QBs threw for 32 or more TDs last season. Over the last four seasons, Rodgers has passed that mark ONCE. He's still Aaron Rodgers and has a ceiling as high as anyone, but I'll pass at his current ADP.Ridley is the 22nd WR off the board in .5 PPR leagues. Last season, he played in 62% of the falcons plays and had 92 targets. He ended with 10 TDs but was still, at times, playing second fiddle to Mohammed Sanu (The GOAT QB). If Ryan regresses and Ridley's efficiency decreases, Ridley will be a WR4. I'm not comfortable with him as my WR2.

A creative offense could work wonders for A-Rod, who was still fantastic last year despite being held back by his system and young talent. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Rodgers finished as the No. 6 quarterback in fantasy last year despite throwing just 25 touchdowns. Did you know that was the first time in his career where he's played more than 10 games and failed to finish as a top-two fantasy quarterback? That track record is rather impossible to beat, even if Patrick Mahomes is coming off the best fantasy season of all-time. Don't reach for a quarterback with all the options available this year, but if Rodgers were to fall to the late-fourth or early-fifth-round, you should absolutely pull the triggerIt's not often we see a rookie wide receiver make an impact in fantasy football the way Ridley did, especially when there's a stud wide receiver on the other side of the field like Julio Jones. Despite that, Ridley popped-off for 821 yards and 10 touchdowns, finishing as the WR20. While some would expect him to build on that, the Falcons aren't likely to throw the ball as much as they did in 2018 due to their defensive stars being healthy again. He should offer a bit more consistency, though, and if something were to happen to Jones, he'd immediately be a top-15 play every week
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Mahomes may have just had one of the strongest seasons of all-time, but unlike Rodgers, he may have lost his top weapon. Plus, Rodgers still had a spectacular season despite everyone thinking it to be a major disappointment. He threw just 2 interceptions and posted his second highest yardage total of his career. The difference was TD-rate which is a volatile statistic, almost certain to bounce back up this year. Every single season he has been healthy, Rodgers has finished 1st or 2nd among fantasy QBs so expect more of the same now that he has two good legs.Last season Ridley played just 61% of the Falcons snaps. Most consider him to be the clear-cut #2 in Atlanta, but outside of a few big flashes, Ridley was the #3 option for Matt Ryan behind Sanu. That should change this year, but with Julio hogging the majority of the targets, Ridley's upside is still stunted.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I don't draft QB's early. Doesn't matter who they are. You're technically getting a discount on Rodgers when you compare his ADP across seasons...but I genuinely don't care. This is the deepest the QB position has ever been, so it's not a good idea spending an early pick on one in 4 point passing TD leagues.Calvin Ridley is an extremely interesting pick this season. There doesn't seem to be any buzz around him, even after his great rookie season. He finished with a 64/821/10 stat line in his first season, and while the per reception TD rate is going to regress, there's plenty of room for his volume to increase. Ridley commanded 92 targets last year, while only playing on 62% of Matt Ryan's snaps. We should expect that number to be at least 80% this season, leading to a much larger target market share. As it currently stands, I have Ridley with an extremely reasonable 18.5% target market share, and 10% regression on his TD's per reception. Under those settings he's projected to finish with a 70/881/9.5 stat line...which is the 17th highest projection among WR's. Yet he's being drafted as the WR 26. That's great value!
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Rodgers had a down year last year and still finished with 25 passing touchdowns, 2 picks and he was 6th among fantasy quarterbacks. Rodgers should still be an elite fantasy quarterback with a new coaching staff in 2019 and a much improved defense that will give them more scoring opportunities.Ridley had 64 receptions for 821 yards and 10 receiving touchdowns last year. He is a solid WR3 bet that will likely have less touchdowns in 2019, but more receptions and receiving yards.
