Aaron Rodgers-2023 Player Profile

Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers had a down season in 2022, despite being the highest paid quarterback in the league. He had his most interceptions in a season ever (12), and it was the first time he failed to crack the top 10 fantasy QBs in a season where he played all of the games (QB13). Just because he didn’t miss any games doesn’t mean he wasn’t injured. Rodgers actually played through what is likely a pretty significant thumb injury on his throwing hand. While no details have been specifically confirmed, there are rumors that it was an avulsion fracture, which is where the stability ligament of the throwing thumb (UCL) gets sprained and pulls a piece of bone off with it. Instead of missing 3 to 6 weeks, allowing this to heal, he played through it, likely leading to his reduced accuracy. He also suffered a rib injury in late November, but again did not miss any time. It is unclear what the future holds for Aaron Rodgers as of early March, but it sounds like he is more interested in chasing another MVP trophy, as opposed to trying to win another Super Bowl based on some of his recent comments. Rodgers should be considered the top free agent quarterback, heading into 2023.
