Is Aaron Rodgers a top-10 fantasy quarterback in 2020?

Fantasy Football, Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers was the best quarterback in football, now he might not even be a top-10 fantasy football quarterback anymore. Can he bounce back in 2020?

Even though the Green Bay Packers made it all the way to the NFC Championship last season, we haven’t gotten the same fantasy football production we’re used to out of Aaron Rodgers in recent years. The Fantasy Footballers bring it up in their latest episode, questioning if Rodgers will be a top-10 fantasy quarterback next season.

Mike Wright points out how Rodgers was QB6 a few years ago, but was only QB9 in 2019. Jason Moore mentions how Rodgers has gone from a quarterback capable of 35-to-38 touchdowns annually at his peak to only managing 25 or so in recent years. For this reason, Moore is out on Rodgers being a top-10 fantasy football quarterback for the next season.

While Moore is out on Rodgers, Wright still thinks Rodgers can remain a top-10 fantasy quarterback. This is because if he plays a 16-game season, he’ll still put up over 4,000 passing yards and be consistent enough to merit that level of fantasy football status in some leagues.

Overall, top-10 status for Rodgers next year in fantasy seems about right. We want to believe he can still be the baddest man on the planet as he was in his prime. However, we’re not realistically going to see him tap into the same vein he was at the peak of his powers from 2011 to 2016. The guys also mention how his receiving corps isn’t anything spectacular outside of Davante Adams.

Green Bay may look to address this receiving corps in the upcoming free agency period or in the 2020 NFL Draft, but it’s not like Rodgers is getting any younger. Rodgers will be 36-years-old this season, roughly around the same age his predecessor Brett Favre was when the Packers used a first-round pick on a certain spiky-haired quarterback out of Cal in 2005.

At this juncture, Rodgers is a fringe top-10 fantasy football quarterback. He may stay above this threshold for another year or so before eventually finding his way outside of it. Rodgers has been an incredible quarterback for a long time, but he’s clearly on the back-nine at this point of his NFL career.
