Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
The best quarterback in the league suffered the second broken collarbone of his career in week six against the Vikings when Anthony Barr drove him to the ground. Through week five, he was QB4 on a points per game (ppg) basis, averaging 25.15 over the only healthy stretch of his season. Rodgers returned after just eight weeks for the week 15 matchup against the Panthers in an effort to lift his team into the playoffs. On the Packers’ final drive, Rodgers had his team in position to tie the game but Geronimo Allison dropped a pass and the Packers were eliminated from playoff contention. With nothing left to play for, Rodgers was shut down for the final two weeks of the 2017 season.
From a dynasty perspective, Rodgers is still my QB1 overall despite now being 34 years old. With an ADP of QB2 in the mid-late third round, his price is likely too rich for me in a one-quarterback league due to the replaceability of the position, but there is no doubt he offers you a weekly floor and ceiling higher than the rest of the field. That said, if you want a stud at the position, his ADP is the lowest it has been since February 2017.
