The Green Bay Packers had one of their most disappointing seasons in recent memory in 2018, leading to the firing of longtime head coach Mike McCarthy. Now that former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFluer is leading the way, the Packers' offense will be looking to have a bounce-back year in 2019. With Aaron Rodgers still at the helm, he and LeFluer should have no trouble getting the most out of some of their slumping players. Here are three guys on the Packers' offense who are primed to have rebound years this season.

Aaron Jones showed flashes of greatness last season before he suffered a season-ending injury after Week 12. He had 728 yards on the ground with a 5.5 yards per carry average before being sidelined. LaFleur loved getting his RBs involved in Tennessee with the duo of Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis. They both combined for over 1,500 yards on the ground and 13 touchdowns. Jones will gets used early and often in LaFleur's offense, so if he can stay healthy this year, we should see a nice uptick in production.

2. Jimmy Graham, TE

Once upon a time Jimmy Graham was considered to be one of the best tight ends in football. Ever since he left Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, he hasn't been able to live up to that standard, but that could change with LaFleur calling plays for the Packers. He loved to spread the ball around during his time with the Rams and Titans, which is exactly what he's going to try and do in Green Bay. Aside from Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison, the Packers don't have an abundance of weapons to work with. Graham should get targeted much more than he did last season, en route to cementing himself as one of the league's best yet again.

Allison is now entering the fourth year in the NFL. With Randall Cobb now in Dallas, Allison is primed to step in and take on a bigger role in the Packers offense. Last season, he was only targeted 30 times, catching 20 of those balls, but Cobb's 61 targets will have to be distributed somehow. Davante Adams could also really use someone opposite him to take off some pressure, as he was targeted a ridiculous 169 times last season. If all goes according to plan, Allison should step in and be a solid No. 2 option for Rodgers.
