Aaron Rodgers Note

At age 38, Rodgers is still one of the best pure passers in the game, and there have been no discernible signs of decline. But make no mistake: Losing star WR Davante Adams is going to damage Rodgers' fantasy value. Expect at least incremental declines in both passing volume and efficiency. Rodgers has led the league in passer rating for two straight seasons and rarely throws interceptions, but he does very little running anymore. Without Adams, Rodgers' ceiling is probably low-end QB1, and it's probably best to view him as a high-end QB2.

Allen Lazard Note

Aaron Rodgers trusts Lazard after they have spent the last four seasons together, and their chemistry was on full display over the final 5 weeks of the 2021 regular season.
Lazard was the WR8 in PPR scoring on the back of 21 receptions for 290 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

Someone on Green Bay will have to replace Davante Adams' elite red-zone production, and Lazard looks to fit the mold at 6-foot-5.

Robert Tonyan Note

Tonyan was having a mediocre campaign before tearing his ACL in Week 8. His breakout season in 2020 was fueled by a fluky TD total (11). But now Davante Adams is gone, and the Packers are woefully short on proven WRs, which opens the window for Tonyan to become fantasy-relevant once again.

Christian Watson Note

The worst-case scenario with Christian Watson is that he becomes Marques Valdez-Scantling in the Green Bay Packers offense. The elite athleticism and big-play ability present a sky-high ceiling as Aaron Rodgers' future WR1, but a lack of refinement and focus drops reveal a somewhat scary floor.

MVS' 73-target rookie season in 2018 is the most a first-year WR has ever earned from Rodgers, which further bolsters the case for a Valdes-Scantling floor for Watson. Davante Adams led that team with 169 targets.

Either way, he's worth a middle-to-backend Round 1 pick in rookie drafts. The opportunity he could see from Day 1 amid a lackluster receiving corps of Sammy Watkins, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers is salivating.

Josiah Deguara Note

With Aaron Rodgers staying in Green Bay and Davante Adams leaving, Deguara has a chance to be fantasy-viable. He would have been more appealing if Robert Tonyan hadn't signed with the packers, however.

Jordan Love Note

Now that the Packers have given Aaron Rodgers a multiyear contract extension, Love's future is cloudy. Love has thrown only 62 passes in two NFL seasons. His lone start -- a 2021 road game against the Chiefs when Rodgers was on the COVID-19 list -- yielded disappointing results. Love has NFL-caliber tools but has offered no evidence that he knows how to use them.
