by June 24, 2021 0 comments

While the 2021 NFL season is still months away, it is never too early to prepare for the fantasy season. Whether it’s research, mock drafts, or going with your gut, everyone has a way to prepare for their fantasy drafts. However, this isn’t another article to help you prepare for the fantasy season. Today, I am going to give three bold fantasy predictions for the Green Bay Packers in 2021.

All stats are base on PPR scoring.

Be sure to check out all of Fanelli’s Fantasy Predictions.

Aaron Rodgers has Over 42 Passing Touchdowns

Last season, Rodgers was a man on a mission to prove he had plenty left in the tank. He threw for a career-high 48 touchdowns. It was the second time in the past four years that Rodgers threw 40 or more passing touchdowns. Furthermore, Rodgers has averaged 2.2 touchdowns per game for his career as the starter. Some believe Rodgers will sit out the season if he isn’t traded. However, Rodgers isn’t going to give up over $30 million to make a point. Instead, he will go out and have another MVP performance season, keeping Jordan Love glued to the bench. With Davante Adams and the rest of his supporting cast around him, Rodgers will easily throw for over 42 touchdowns.

AJ Dillon Scores Eight Rushing Touchdowns

Despite spending a second-round pick on Dillon, he rarely saw the field as a rookie. In 11 games, Dillon had 46 rushing attempts for 242 rushing yards and two touchdowns. However, he averaged 5.3 yards per rushing attempt during the regular season and a 4.9 in the playoffs. More importantly, Dillon finished tied for second among running backs on the team in rushing touchdowns. However, with Jamaal Williams now in Detroit, Dillon will have a larger role this upcoming season. Expect Dillon to earn the goal line role, with Aaron Jones focusing more on a passing game role. At 6’0” and 250 lbs, expect Dillon to be a force at the goal line.

Amari Rodgers Finishes Second on the Team in Catches

Entering the 2020 NFL Draft, many expected the Packers to use their first-round pick on a wide receiver. Instead, they didn’t use a single pick on the position, and it showed. Despite missing two games, Adams led the team with 115 catches on 148 targets. The next closest player was Robert Tonyan with 52 catches. Meanwhile, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard finished tied for fourth on the team with 33 catches each. Unhappy with their wide receiver core, the Packers used their third-round pick on Rodgers. In his final year at Clemson, Rodgers had a career-high 77 catches (6.4 per game). With defenses focused on slowing down Adams and Jones, expect Rodgers to see plenty of targets in the middle of the field, similar to Randall Cobb back in the day.
