QB: 2011 Aaron Rodgers
No surprise here. It had to be one of Aaron Rodgers‘ two MVP seasons, and in 2011 he was throwing touchdowns for fun.
In 2011, Rodgers won his first league MVP, was a first-team All-Pro, a Pro Bowler and also led quarterbacks in fantasy points, according to Fantasy Data. It was a simply dominant year from Rodgers and the Packers offense, one in which he threw for a career-best 4,643 yards, 45 touchdowns and just six interceptions. He also added 257 yards on the ground with three rushing touchdowns.
If you had Rodgers on your fantasy team in 2011, there’s a good chance you went on to win a championship. He threw at least one TD in each game, and at least two touchdown passes in all but one game. Rodgers also threw five touchdowns in Week 16, which is the championship game in most fantasy leagues.
It was an all-time great fantasy season by a QB, and Rodgers dominated from the season opener to the championship game. The Green Bay Packers may have fallen short in search of back-to-back Super Bowl victories, but fantasy owners who drafted Rodgers were likely rewarded with a championship of their own.
The 2014 season from Rodgers came close, but it’s 2011 Aaron Rodgers that makes the team.
