2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Green Bay Packers

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Green Bay Packers.



Aaron Rodgers567.3368.7408534.69.650.7263.62.22.4317.36
Since becoming the starter in 2008, Rodgers has missed roughly a half-season twice (2013 and 2017). In the other eight seasons, he has finished as either the QB1 or QB2 in fantasy football seven times. Assuming good health, Rodgers is a virtual lock for a top-two season. The only concern with Rodgers or any quarterback selected early is the lost opportunity to acquire an impact player at a position of greater scarcity/value. Outside of 2-QB or deep leagues, I'm unlikely to draft Rodgers before another owner.

Running Backs


Jamaal Williams174.3723.35.922.1174.61.50.2133.79
Due to other injuries at running back, only three running backs had more carries than Williams (122) from Week 10 on -- Melvin Gordon (137), Frank Gore (134) and LeSean McCoy (130). That said, Williams averaged only 3.6 yards per carry as a rookie. With Aaron Jones suspended the first two games and Ty Montgomery dealing with a foot injury, Williams will have a chance to pick up where he left off.
Ty Montgomery76.2335.3338.3314.
Before sustaining a Week 4 ribs injury, Montgomery had 59 touches (41 carries and 18 receptions), which was tied for eighth-most over the first three games of the season. Missing half of last season, Montgomery could be used more as a "hybrid player" in 2018, but it also wouldn't be a surprise if he were to get a much larger workload than I currently project.
Aaron Jones97.6444.13.316.6112.
Jones had a pair of 100-yard games with touchdowns from Weeks 5 to 7 and averaged almost two more yards per carry than Williams (5.5 to 3.6) last season. Unfortunately he'll begin the season serving a two-game suspension, which could allow Williams to potentially run away with the lead-back role.
Aaron Ripkowski3.710.40.26.9400.20.17.24

Wide Receivers


Davante Adams80.71016.89.70000.3159.28
With double-digit touchdowns in back-to-back seasons, Adams has produced 149/1,882/22 over the past two years. With Jordy Nelson now in Oakland, Adams will have an opportunity to improve upon his top-12 (or 14th in PPR) 2017 performance as the No. 1 receiver for Aaron Rodgers.
Randall Cobb73.5771.86.610.741.70.10.1121.35
Since exceeding 800-plus yards in his three healthy seasons from 2012 to 2015, Cobb has 600-something yards in back-to-back seasons. Given a secure WR2 role (minus some late-August trade rumors), however, Cobb should bounce back provided that he and Rodgers can stay healthy.
Geronimo Allison33.3429.62.50000.656.76
J'Mon Moore14.1186.11.50000.426.81
Marquez Valdes-Scantling3.857.80.40000.37.58
Equanimeous St. Brown2.942.10.30000.15.81
Jake Kumerow2.534.50.20000.14.45
DeAngelo Yancey1.418.50.10000.12.25
Trevor Davis1.215.60.10000.11.96

Tight Ends


Jimmy Graham57598.57.70000.8104.45
Even though Graham posted his lowest yardage total (520) since his rookie season and averaged a career-low 9.1 Y/R, the veteran tight end scored 10 touchdowns last season. Playing in the high-powered Packers offense, double-digit touchdowns is possible if Aaron Rodgers can stay healthy all season.
Lance Kendricks13.6141.41.20000.121.14
Marcedes Lewis8960.7000013.8
