Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
A
I'm giving Rodgers an A because it's a new system, he's getting older, and he's coming off the worst season of his career.
Running Backs
B
I like Jones and Williams as a 1-2 punch with Jones getting 60% of the action
Protection & Blocking
B+
Always solid.
Receiving
B+
Who steps up after Adams? My guess is that Allison, St. Brown and Valdes-Scantling split remaining targets evenly.

Skills Analysis Notes
Rodgers should rebound nicely. While the Packers don't have any great athletes on offense they do have one of the best receivers in Davante Adams and Aaron Jones is a versatile running back. With Aaron Rodgers as the star of the show that might be enough.
Defense
Position
Defensive Line
B+
The team obviously felt good enough to let Mike Daniels walk away.
Linebackers
B
Green Bay spent big on outside linebackers but their inside backers are still a question.
Defensive Backs
A
Years of early draft picks have finally paid off in Green Bay.

Skills Analysis Notes
The line has some depth but no big names. The linebackers have some veteran hands on the outside but inexperienced players on the inside. The secondary is both solid and deep all over. I worry about how they will get off the field against better offenses.

Overall Unit Analysis
Crosby is one of the best kickers in the game. The coverage units should be bolstered by a defense that has both youth and depth.

Hard to say but so far LaFleur seems to be doing a good job of getting Aaron Rodgers to buy into what he is doing.

Should be better but this is a tough division.

Expectations/ Outlook
I expect Green Bay to just sneak into the playoffs. Just the culture change alone should help them.
