Packers QB Aaron Rodgers might have found a new favorite target in the red zone. So far in training camp, the second-year tight end has become a frequent target for Rodgers inside the 20. Combine that with the fact that Andrew Quarless could be suspended to start the season, and Richard Rodgers should get a lot of action.
Rodgers caught 20 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. We shouldn’t be too quick to write him off as a budding fantasy asset since rookie tight ends rarely make much of a fantasy impact. Andrew Quarless is dealing with a legal issue and may be suspended to start the season, which opens the door for Rodgers to play big snaps. He is reportedly a ‘frequent target’ in the red zone in practice, so it’s possible that he works his way into TE2 numbers in his second season.
