“Ask The Gazette:” What Does the Aaron Rodgers Drama Mean for Fantasy?
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been lighting the internet ablaze this week with reports revealing the reigning NFL MVP may want out of Green Bay ASAP. Rodgers, the fantasy QB3 last year, would leave a tremendous ripple effect for fantasy football if he was traded or retired, mostly for the Packers he would leave behind.
You asked the Fantasy Gazette what this means for your fantasy teams and draft strategies. Below, we provide the answers to our most frequently asked questions.
What’s the new fantasy value of Jordan Love?
Jordan Love gets an upgrade of being backup to a Hall of Famer to backup of whichever quarterback another team sends over in a trade.
What happens to Davante Adams if Rodgers leaves Green Bay?
Adams can be dropped in all leagues, effective immediately.
Is Aaron Jones still in RB1 territory?
Jones will continue his pattern of being a RB1 in half of your fantasy matchups this season while failing to reach RB2 status the rest of his games.
Should I still draft Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan, or Amari Rodgers if Aaron isn’t throwing them the ball?
Rodgers referred to GM Brian Gutekunst as “Jerry Krause,” what does that mean?
We can assume Rodgers comparing him to infamous Chicago Bulls GM Jerry Krause – rival of Michael Jordan – means Rodgers will be joining the Milwaukee Brewers’ Double-A affiliate Biloxi Shuckers before abruptly returning in the middle of the 2023 season.
Are there any sneaky waiver adds I can make in my dynasty leagues?
We recommend adding any obscure white receiver on Rodgers’ new team. Oh, and Brett Favre. Just in case.
