Draft note
by John Paulsen
Rodgers is coming off an MVP season where he finished as the No. 2 fantasy quarterback, he has arguably the best receiver in the game (Davante Adams), an up-and-coming tight end (Robert Tonyan, a.k.a. #Babykittle), a great RB duo (Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon), a good offensive line and a decent supporting cast of receivers that now includes rookie Amari Rodgers and Randall Cobb. Now that he’s officially “in” for the 2021 season, he should be one of the first five quarterbacks off the board.

GB QB Aaron Rodgers - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Lions

It's the first rivalry week for the Green Bay Packers in 2021, and it couldn't come at a better time for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Week 1 saw the reigning MVP get rocked and post just 1.3 fantasy points. The Packers' offensive line held up, in spite of the absence of All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari, allowing just the 18th-most pressures for Week 1 quarterbacks. The Packers simply got too far behind too early and never were able to catch up.

Week 2, however, features a much more forgiving opponent in the bottom-of-the-barrel Detroit Lions. Detroit so far has given up a league-average amount of fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Our matchups tool has them as the easiest fantasy matchup for the position this week, however, which lines up with a 30-point implied total. That puts Rodgers in line for the eighth-best fantasy value for Week 2, as we project him for 289.1 passing yards, 2.4 touchdowns, and 0.4 interceptions on 36.3 attempts, adding 3.2 rushes for 12.0 yards and 0.2 scores on the ground.
