The Packers may have drafted Jordan Love in the first round this past April, but there won’t be a change at the top of the quarterback depth chart for some time yet. Expect another Aaron Rodgers season from Aaron Rodgers, which means consistently putting in strong performances.
Never write Rodgers off. That’s not a good idea. Perhaps now more than since early on in his career, Rodgers will feel like he’s got something to prove. In year two of Matt LaFleur’s system, don’t rule out a dominant season by Rodgers.
Here’s what we don’t know: how Aaron Jones‘ role will change, if at all, now that the Packers have added more talent to the depth chart with second-round pick AJ Dillon. Here’s what we do know: Jones is still the Packers’ number one running back and should start every game.
Jones dominated the Vikings in their own stadium last season, rushing for 154 yards and two touchdowns, including a 56-yard score that effectively ended the game. Back in the same stadium where Jones led the Packers to a division title, LaFleur should give him the ball early and often and force the Vikings defense to stop him.
No matter how the carries are distributed, Jones will be the starter.
