Quarterback Outlook Week 2

Aaron Rodgers (QB5) was slept on heavily in fantasy drafts, with an ADP of QB12. Well, owners are likely kicking themselves after just one week of play as Rodgers currently sits as the second-highest scoring quarterback in fantasy behind only Russell Wilson. However, more important than his 30-plus point outing is the trend of volume Rodgers has carried over into 2020.

In 2019, with a new coaching staff on hand, Rodgers had zero games of 40-plus pass attempts through the first 15 weeks of play. Since then, (including this past weekend) he’s averaged 46.3 pass attempts over his past three regular-season games. If you need any more reason to start Rodgers in Week 2, consider the fact that Mitchell Trubisky torched the Lions defense to the tune of three touchdowns and 24-plus fantasy points.

The opposite of Rodgers, Tom Brady (QB11) was likely overdrafted in most leagues. That’s not an overreaction to one game, but the fact that he’s produced as a low-end QB1 for quite some time now, having not finished higher than QB12 in each of the past two seasons. Where did his 20.46 point outing place him amongst the Week 1 QB ranks? You guessed it, QB12.

Brady and the Bucs will improve. Mental miscues and Mike Evans not being 100-percent played into Tampa’s struggles more than anything else this past weekend. Expect the Bucs’ offense to turn things up a notch in Week 2 in a highly-favorable matchup against Carolina, who was just shredded by a far less superior offense than that of the Bucs, in the Las Vegas Raiders.
