–>Rodgers Played Weeks 1-8, 17: 49 receptions, 810 yards, 7 touchdowns
Over the last five years, Jordy was a top-5 fantasy producer with Aaron Rodgers. Without Rodgers, his catches, yards, touchdowns, efficiency and fantasy points all collapsed.
|Metric||With Aaron Rodgers||Without Aaron Rodgers|
|Fantasy Points Per Game||19.7||11.7|
|Receptions Per Game||6.0||4.5|
|Yards Per Game||85.7||62.4|
|Touchdowns Per Game||.87||.14|
Nelson is no longer a top-5 fantasy receiver, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams are now flex options, and Martellus Bennett is useless. The fantasy prospects for Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones are also diminished. They were averaging a touchdown per game with Rodgers, but with fewer red zone carries, Jones and Montgomery will be chasing ghosts.
What about Brett Hundley? Hundley’s prospect profile is impressive. Precocious and efficient college passer with great athleticism, but he’s no Aaron Rodgers. No one is. Hundley’s ceiling is Ryan Tannehill with wheels, but more likely, as a late round pick coming in with no experience, fast Trevor Siemian is the most realistic comp.
Happy Halloween! RIP Green Bay fantasy production.
