Davante Adams traded to Raiders

Davante Adams has been traded to the Las Vegas Raiders for a package including two prime 2022 picks including the Raiders’ first. Adams will sign a five-year, $141.25 million extension with Las Vegas to make him the leagues highest paid WR.

Fantasy Impact

The blockbuster trade reunites Adams with his former college teammate, Derek Carr, in Las Vegas which many speculated could happen before Adams was tagged. Adams will be the clear number one receiver in that offense and still should produce elite WR1 numbers, despite not having Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball anymore. For Rodgers and Green Bay, they will have to address the WR position in the draft or in free agency. They are really lacking elite playmaking without Adams on the roster.

Davante Adams informs Packers he will not play under the franchise tag

According to Ian Rapoport, Davante Adams informed the Packers that he will not play under the franchise tag during the 2022 season.

Fantasy Impact

After being franchise tagged during last week's deadline, Adams informed the Packers organization over the weekend that he will not play the 2022 season under the tag. He and the organization have continued to work towards getting a deal done but nothing seems prominent at the moment. With Aaron Rodgers agreeing to come back, the deal remains one of the top priorities for the team as we head into the free agency window at 12 PM EST on Monday.

Davante Adams officially tagged by Green Bay

The Packers applied their franchise tag to Davante Adams shortly after locking up Aaron Rodgers to a record-breaking contract.

Fantasy Impact

The $20.1 million franchise tag for the back-to-back All-Pro receiver is an immediate cap hit, though the team can continue working on a new contract until March 16. Assuming it all gets worked out, Adams remains a WR1 in all fantasy formats with the return of Rodgers.

Davante Adams expected to be tagged

Packers star wide receiver Davante Adams is expected to be franchise tagged by the team.

Fantasy Impact

Just minutes after the team signed QB Aaron Rodgers to a new deal, the team will franchise tag Davante Adams. The team has new cap room because of the Rodgers deal, and they used it to keep arguable the best receiver in the league for another year. This move keeps the fantasy value of both Rogers and Adams consistent with what they've been the past couple of seasons.

Davante Adams, Packers yet to begin contract talks

Per Tom Silverstein, the Packers and all-pro wideout Davante Adams have yet to begin contract talks this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Adams and Aaron Rodgers are both undecided on their futures, and have reportedly not been in contact with management regarding contract negotiation. Green Bay is expected to franchise tag Adams, if the two sides can not agree on a deal before March 8th. If Aaron Rodgers does not return to the Packers, however, this situation becomes considerably less predictable. According to Spotrac, the franchise tag for Adams would be valued at $20.12 million, which may not be a contract that is viable for Green Bay without Aaron Rodgers. If he does get the franchise tag, he may hold out for a new contract, given how these situations have played out in past scenarios. Adams will have immense fantasy value wherever he plays next season, however his ceiling is considerably higher with Aaron Rodgers, given their elite connection .
