One of the biggest stories of the 2020 NFL Draft was the Green Bay Packers completely forgoing bringing in any sort of help for Aaron Rodgers and the offense, and even taking a step in the opposite direction by trading up for Utah State quarterback Jordan Love — a potential successor for Rodgers.

With drama brewing in Green Bay, FanDuel Sportsbook's prop bets for Rodgers' 2020 stats suggest his numbers could take a big step back in 2020.

Aaron Rodgers 2020 Projections

The over/under for Rodgers' passing yards is set at 3,899.5, and the over/under for passing touchdowns is at 25.5. Both of those lines have equal odds (-112) on both the over and under.

That yardage total would be uncharacteristically poor for Rodgers. He has topped 4,000 yards in three of the last four seasons, only missing that mark when injuries limited him to seven games in 2017. And even in 2017 he was on a 16-game pace for over 4,000 yards if we just look at the six full games he played.

Again ignoring that injury-shortened game in 2017, Rodgers has also averaged 1.98 touchdowns per game over the last four years — or almost 32 per 16 games.

It's clear that oddsmakers expect Rodgers to take a significant step back in the 2020 NFL season, and that could be big trouble for the Packers' chances at repeating as NFC North champions.
