    High: 7

    Low: 12

    Last Week: 9

    It’s a good week to be Aaron Rodgers.

    In a week that saw blockbuster contracts handed out like lollipops, Rodgers got the blockbustery-est of them all—a four-year, $134 million extension that made the 34-year-old the highest-paid player in NFL history.

    Now, when the Packers host the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, the league’s highest-paid offensive and defensive players will face off.

    No one has questioned whether Rodgers deserves all that cash. As was shown plainly a year ago, as goes No. 12, so goes Green Bay.

    In Gagnon’s opinion, that’s the problem—and why he’s the lowest ranker of the group.

    “My only concern with the Packers is they’re extremely reliant on their quarterback. Sure, most teams would fall out of contention without their QB, but the Eagles won the Super Bowl without theirs. The NFC is very strong, and the Saints, Rams, Vikings, Eagles, Falcons, Patriots, Steelers, Jaguars, Texans and Chargers are better all-around teams. Green Bay could leapfrog a lot of those squads early this season, but boy does Aaron Rodgers ever have to stay healthy.”

    Rodgers vs. Mack. Week 1. Prime time. Bring popcorn.
