Fantasy Impact:

Rodgers was selected by the Packers in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 85th overall. He led Clemson in receiving in his senior year, hauling in 77 receptions for 1,020 yards and seven touchdowns. “The rookie third-round pick out of Clemson is a natural slot receiver, something the Packers lacked, and a skilled punt returner, another tool the Packers were missing,” per Schneidman. “Rodgers, who stands only 5-foot-9 but 212 pounds, can also serve as a gadget piece out of the backfield on jet sweeps, reverses, and other motion action.” The Packers are high on Rodgers as the team traded up in the draft to select the wide receiver. He could challenge for slot snaps right away and will compete with Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling for targets in Green Bay’s passing game. Rodgers is currently 97th overall among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
