Could it be? Could it really be that the Packers have done it again? Since 1992, the Packers have had to worry about a singular position less than any other team in the NFL. Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers have become synonymous with the Packers franchise over the last 4 decades. So finally, uncertainty struck with 2020 first round pick taking the helm after sitting three years like Rodgers did from 2005-2008.

Through his first three starts, Love has a 2-1 record including a 17-0 comeback win vs the NFC South favorite Saints and a 38-20 blowout win versus the Bears. The loss to the Falcons was a 25-24 heart breaker. While his completion percent leaves room to be desired, is his first three games and he is winning and making big plays.

Over the last month his market has gone up 24.5% with a massive bump leading up to the season as well as a small bump after his big week 2 performance. It is way too early to tell but as of now it seems like the Packers have a good one. WR1 Christian Watson has also been out, with him returning soon it should help Love increase his completion percentage.
