Fantasy Football 2012 Rankings: Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers displayed one of the most impressive regular seasons for any quarterback in 2011 after throwing for 4,643 yards to go along with 46 touchdowns and just six interceptions while leading the Green Bay Packers to a 15-1 record. With these type of numbers, it should be no surprise Rodgers sits at the top of the quarterback rankings for the fantasy football 2012 season.
As long as he remains healthy, there’s no reason why Rodgers shouldn’t display MVP type numbers once again in 2012–especially with a strong receiving core. Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson have emerged into two of the most dangerous wide receivers in the NFL and should help Rodgers perform at a high level once again this season. There’s a reason why the Packers were willing to part ways with Brett Favre a few years ago and Rodgers has quickly developed into one of the best quarterbacks in the league–which has earned him the top spot from a fantasy perspective.
For years, it was always Peyton Manning or Tom Brady when it came to being the best quarterback in the NFL, but Rodgers has performed at a high level on a consistent basis where he’s been able to take that crown. Not only did Rodgers record a quarterback rating of 122.5, but he’s only thrown 37 interceptions in his four seasons as a starter for the Packers.
From a fantasy football perspective–those are the types of numbers owners love and there’s no question Rodgers will be selected in the first round of most fantasy football drafts this season.
