I used to be of this opinion, then I dug into some numbers that even made me more pro Rodgers.
Brady had 109 more attempts than Rodgers & ended up with 33 less fantasy points. Now look at the # of attempts for all of the top 5 QB's in 2011 other than Rodgers:
In terms of the top QB's being drafted, Rodgers had 161 attempts less than Stafford, 155 less than Brees, & 109 less than Brady.
What's are the Shark's opinions on this? To me it indicates he actually has some room to grow his fantasy totals. Not saying it is terribly likely that his attempt numbers will increase, and while Rodgers only had 475 attempts in 2010, he did have 541 in 2009 & 536 in 2008. If he plays at his 2011 level with 30-60 more attempts in 2012, he could easily blow by his 2011 fantasy numbers IMO.
