Huddle Up: Rodgers has thrown at least 25 touchdowns in five of the last six seasons and has eight career 4,000-yard seasons. He continues to be a top NFL quarterback and will be a must-start fantasy option every week.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur reiterated that QB Aaron Rodgers is the leader of the Packers. 'This is Aaron's team. He's our leader. He's our captain,' LaFleur said.
Huddle Up: While the Packers added a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft and there has been a media buzz around Rodgers' future with the team, have no question that ARod is the QB1 of the Pack for 2020 (and likely the next few years) barring some massive turn of events. He remains a QB1 in fantasy football drafts, too.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 68.6 percent of his passes, threw for an average of 313.7 yards and sported a 10:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio in the four games last season WR Davante Adams missed due to a high-ankle sprain. In 12 games with Adams, Rodgers was a 59.9 percent passer, threw for 228.9 yards and sported a 16:3 TD-to-INT ratio.
Huddle Up: The explanation(s) may not be as difficult as one might think or as easy as saying Rodgers was a better quarterback without Adams around. Three of the four defenses Rodgers faced without Adams owned some of the worst secondaries in the league when the teams met. It's also fair to assume Rodgers forced more than his fair share of throws to Adams upon his return considering the latter had 10 or more targets in eight of his final nine games. Adams should be considered a strong candidate to finish as the highest-scoring receiver in fantasy this season, while Rodgers should serve as a low-end QB1.

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers received a vote of confidence from head coach Matt LaFleur. 'Aaron is a pro, and he's the leader of our football team, and I anticipate that for a really long time,' LaFleur said Saturday, April 25. 'I have so much respect for him not only as a player but the person, and some of the stuff that nobody sees. So I can't tell you how much I like working with him.' LaFleur went on to state, 'You know how this league works. I know you guys get tired of me saying this, but it's about getting better each and every day and we're going to take it week to week. In my mind, I think Aaron is by far the best quarterback I've ever been around. I think he's the best ever to play the game. I hope he can play until he decides he doesn't want to play anymore.'
Huddle Up: There's not wiggle room in what LaFleur said, but one always must be slightly skeptical anytime an NFL coach opens his mouth to talk about a touchy subject that involves his superstar quarterback. Rodgers, 36, enters the NFL's 2020 fantasy football season as a fringe No. 1 quarterback. He's more of a weekly matchup decision in an offense that is content to churn out yardage the hard way and hasn't improved suspect receiving depth.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has received little help from the team's draft picks through the third round Friday, April 24, and one national media outlet suggests the Packers are prodding Rodgers toward a 'divorce.' Trading Rodgers now would result in a $45.9 million cap charge, but waiting until after June 1 would result in only $14.352 million hitting the cap in 2020.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has been a top-five fantasy QB in five of the last six seasons and helped guide Green Bay to the NFC title game a season ago. And while Rodgers hasn't commented publicly yet on the team's current draft, those who know him best expect some definite vitriol, and Rodgers asking for a trade might not be out of the question.
