Over the last few seasons, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had some issues with season-ending injuries. As a fantasy football owner, he still has value and now is the time to deal him.
As a fellow fantasy football owner, I have owned Aaron Rodgers before. The man provides excellent production, and never disappoints, especially when an owner needs a large sum of fantasy points.
Rodgers is a tremendous athlete, however, he’s been plagued by injuries the last several years. Last year, the hit by Minnesota Vikings Anthony Barr cost him the rest of his season and what were high hopes for a Super Bowl appearance for Green Bay.
Rodgers injury did not only cost Green Bay, but also thousands of fantasy football owners across the nation. This year, Rodgers could be headed down the same path after his collision with the Chicago Bears front three during Week One.
Last week Rodgers wore a brace on his knee, but did not look comfortable out on the field. I expect no half-healthy quarterback to look comfortable out on a football field, but Rodgers is tough as nails.
At this moment, Rodgers’ injury could swing either way, however, my money is on another injury-riddled season that derails Green Bay’s Super Bowl hopes, something no one wants to see.
As a fantasy footballowner of Rodgers, you’ve gotta be a little concerned. He’s no doubt locked in at the QB position of your starting lineup, and if this injury forces him out, you might be in big trouble come midseason.
Now is the time to deal Rodgers to a team currently in your league, sitting at zero wins. Yes, this trade is a complete gamble if you’ve ever seen one, but wouldn’t you rather be safe than sorry?
If you’re one of those teams who does have Rodgers, and is currently sitting at zero wins, well I’m sorry first off, and secondly, this doesn’t really apply to you.
Why deal him to a bad team, you may ask? If its a bad team, what will I get in return? I can answer the first part of that question, but the second, that’s between you and one of your fellow owners to discuss.
Dealing Rodgers to a bad team on the surface appears to benefit both parties; you acquire a player at a specific position in need, while your trade partner feels like a million bucks for pulling off a Rodgers deal. There are multiple hot quarterbacks in the league right now, so if you do not have a solid backup already, go grab one of your choice off of the waiver wire.
To answer the second part of the first question, dealing Rodgers to a bad team, should not hurt your playoff chances at this point. It is still early in the season, but if Rodgers is the only top-tier player on the team, that team does not pose much of a threat to the rest of the league.
Rodgers is undoubtedly a premium player, and the value is presently there. Let’s pretend Rodgers is a piece of land for a brief moment.

The owner of “Rodgersland” notices that his large property does have value, but sees an opportunity of selling it, and purchasing “Kareem Hunt Villas” and “Jarvis Landry Lane” apartment complexes. The thing of it is, that large piece of land is worth a lot, but both apartment complexes are decent value, and could provide to be helpful in the end.
If that large piece of property is found to have issues early on, you can kiss that sale goodbye. On the other side of the coin, the property has great value, and if it is sold quickly to an impulsive buyer, you’ve just struck gold.
Bottom line fantasy football owners, if you currently own the rights to Aaron Rodgers, his value is still currently on the high end and a trade could easily be made. Just realize, you cannot sit back and wait to see what happens with Rodgers and his ailing knee.
Sell while Rodgers stock is high, and grab a good lower tier player or two in return. When this move helps you along the road to league champion, “you’re welcome.”
