Losing Jordy Nelson and getting way too much extra Eddie Lacy was destructive to Rodgers' fantasy value last season. This year with Nelson back and Lacy slimmed down, Rodgers should be back to the days where he puts up near 400 fantasy points and carries fantasy teams to titles. Don't hesitate to draft a QB this early, as Rodgers should score 7 fantasy points per game above replacement and is far less injury prone than the dual threat QBs and stars from other positions.

Aaron Rodgers was efficient against the San Francisco 49ers, going 6-for-9 for 60 yards in limited action. He connected with Randall Cobb on the first play of the second quarter for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: It's unsurprising that Rodgers was productive against the 49ers, and the biggest, and most important, take away from Friday evening is that Green Bay's franchise quarterback wasn't injured in his time on the field. Rogers is currently 27 overall in ADP, going at the end of the second round in standard leagues; for those willing to pull the trigger on a quarterback early, Rodgers is one of a few players arguably worth the draft capital.

"The goal is to obviously play Aaron (Rodgers) and play our guys," head coach Mike McCarthy said before Tuesday's practice. "But we'll evaluate today's practice and we'll have that meeting tomorrow." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The only impact this has for current owners and prospective owners of Aaron Rodgers is whether or not he makes it through his short preseason stint with a full bill of health. But it should be interesting to see him back on the field with Jordy Nelson, who missed last season with a torn ACL, and to see how comfortable he is with his new toy, Jared Cook. Green Bay will be careful not to show too much in the preseason but this will likely be the only chance to see physical proof of how Jared Cook, Jordy Nelson, and the rest of the crew are meshing with their all-star quarterback before the season starts.

Well, 2015 was easily Rodgers' worst season ever. His first year as a starter is close, but not quite as bad as 2015. He had his lowest completion percentage with 60.7 percent, his lowest yards per game with 239, and his lowest yards per attempt with 6.7. But still, Rodgers averaged 18 fantasy points per game. He looked rattled at times toward the end of the 2015 season. A kind of rattled that effected his play even when he had time to throw, which wasn't been all that often. I think we can say that Rodgers is human, and without help from his team, he's not going to just continue pumping out great fantasy numbers. But, we also have a rock-solid track record for Rodgers and he'll get Jordy Nelson back in 2016, along with what I assume is a strong commitment to shoring up the offensive line and a slimmed down Eddie Lacy

Aaron Rodgers had his worst season as a professional last year, but he is still be drafted as the 2nd best QB behind Cam Newton in 2016 fantasy football league drafts. Rodgers has WR Jordy Nelson returning this season, which will help his overall fantasy value.

Finished just 12th at QB spot in fantasy points last season. Impacted by loss of WR Jordy Nelson and lack of run game in Green Bay. Expect a bounce back and top-5 performance from Rodgers in 2016.

QB is a very deep position in Fantasy Football and everyone knows this. The waiting game strategy has become very prevalent with this position.

Early Round QB is a “strategy” that involves using a high pick, likely in one of the first 3 rounds, on a quarterback. It is a strategy that is ridiculed across much of the fantasy football world today. Its opposing ideology, the Late Round Quarterback has become so accepted that, for many, taking Aaron Rodgers

Return of WR Nelson and addition of TE J. Cook should help the passing numbers rebound back into the very top echelon of fantasy QBs after finishing outside the top 2 in QB fantasy points (Y! default) for the first time in his seven full seasons as a starter

A healthy Jordy Nelson and a bounce back year from Randall Cobb and Eddie Lacy should push Rodgers towards #1 overall QB.

Improved running game should help Rogers get back to form.

A-Rod was a top-10 guy despite having nothing to work with last year. With Jordy back, he's once again the top guy at his position.

Rodgers had a "down" year with 3,821 yards passing, 31 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. I think Newton and Wilson are better fantasy options, but you are going to be hard pressed to do better than Rodgers, who should see an upgrade with WR Jordy Nelson returning from injury.
