What do we make of Aaron Rodgers in a dynasty league? He’s 35 years old. Does is make more sense at this point to go with one of the seemingly emerging quarterbacks who’s about 10 years younger?
At this point we don’t know who’ll be coaching the Packers, and what kind of offense they’ll be running. They need to add some talent to their roster, and that’s harder with Rodgers taking up the most cap room of any player in the league.
So if I’m walking into a dynasty league, I would slot Rodgers behind some of the younger players at that position. Carson Wentz, Deshaun Watson and Jared Goff aren’t as good as Rodgers right now, but they’re all about 10 years younger and they all have better casts around them.
Patrick Mahomes is the No. 1 quarterback on the board, I think most would agree. And with how the combo of Andrew Luck and Frank Reich has been performing, I think Luck looks pretty firm at No. 2.
When you get to the bottom of the top 10, you must decide whether Baker Mayfield has shown enough to say with some conviction that he’s for real. Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Tom Brady are better than Mayfield today, but they’re all nearing the ends of their careers. I think Mayfield has shown enough that to earn the No. 10 spot on my board.
My top 50 at the position, using standard scoring. List assumes that when you select a player, you have him for as long as you want to keep him.
