Fantasy Impact: Lewis will be returning to the Packers for his 16th season. He was mainly used as a blocker while Tonyan was the pass-catching option. Lewis caught 10 passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns. The 36-year old TE will return to the same role he played last year and will not carry much fantasy value.

Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Packers have re-signed CB Kevin King to a one-year, $6M deal. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Many might have expected for the Packers to part ways with King following his struggles in the playoffs, but Green Bay has elected to re-sign the 25-year old CB to a one-year, $6M deal. In 2020, King started 11 games but failed to record an interception. King was drafted by the Packers in 2017 and has had an up and down career so far, but it seems he will be given one more chance to try and return to form in Green Bay.

In a clear effort to create cap space, the Packers are reportedly working to restructure the contract of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. (Source: Mike Silver on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Restructuring Rodgers's contract would give Green Bay more cap space as they are currently $40,973 beyond the threshold. Such a move could have a major impact on the Packers' ability to pursue free agents. After all, they have yet to sign somebody who played outside of Green Bay in 2020. Silver notes that restructuring Rodgers's deal could be tricky because it will expose how long they truly believe they can be competitive. Further, Silver explains that one option that won't be possible is to let him reach the open market in just one or two years because doing so would fracture relationships between the two sides. Regardless of what happens, Green Bay is in a good place with Rodgers at the helm. The 2020 NFL MVP and nine-time Pro Bowler went 13-3 last season, completing 372 passes for 4,299 yards, an NFL-best 48 touchdowns, and just five interceptions.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports former Packers DT Montravius Adams is signing with the New England Patriots. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Adams totaled 11 tackles in eight games for Green Bay last season. He's yet another addition to the Patriots' roster this offseason. Expect him to be a rotation player on New England's defensive front this season.

RB Jamaal Williams and the Lions have reached agreement on a two-year, $7.5 million contract. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Williams acknowledged that he would not be returning to the Packers after Green Bay signed RB Aaron Jones to a four-year extension. He became a free agent and ultimately landed a two-year deal with the Lions. Williams logged 119 carries for 505 yards while hauling in 31 receptions for 236 yards and three touchdowns across 14 games for the Packers. The 25-year-old bolsters the Lions backfield and will compliment breakout RB D’Andre Swift.

According to Tom Pelissero, the Los Angeles Chargers are expected to sign All-Pro Center Corey Linsley. The deal reportedly could make him the highest-paid center in the NFL. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Linsley was graded out as the number one overall center last season (86.4) by PFF, and he lands in a beautiful spot with the Los Angeles Chargers. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but he'll be the highest-paid center in the league. This is a huge boost to Justin Herbert and Austin Ekeler as they now have one of the best all-around centers directing the offensive line.

RB Aaron Jones and the Green Bay Packers have agreed to a four-year, $48M extension. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Just moments before the announcement, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported the Packers were pushing hard to re-sign Jones. Per his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, Jones gets a $13M signing bonus. His return to Green Bay certainly lowers the value of 2nd-year running back AJ Dillon, whom dynasty fantasy managers in particular had high hopes for if Jones were to leave in free agency. In any case, Jones is back with the Packers for another four years, which will make him 30 years old at the end of his newest contract extension.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Packers and S Adrian Amos have agreed to restructure the safeties contract to free up cap space for 2021. (Source: Adam Schefter on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The move doesn't come at much of a surprise as star lineman Za'Darius Smith is headed to free agency. With the cap going down and the Packers being up against it, the move will likely help the team retain the star lineman.

Packers WR Devin Funchess has agreed to take a pay cut in order to remain with the team. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Funchess has agreed to a pay cut of around $750,000 to help ease his cap hit. After signing a one-year contract with the Packers last year, he made the decision to opt-out of the 2020 season. Funchess hasn't played a game in nearly two years at this point, So it's difficult to project what he can bring to the table. The Packers have been looking to solidify their WR2 for some time now, and maybe a healthy Funchess can play the part.

The Packers signed RB Dexter Williams to a reserve/futures contract. (Source: Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams was the team's sixth round pick from 2019. He could have a role in Green Bay if the Packers move on from both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams this offseason. However, he only received playing time in one game this season so fantasy managers shouldn't expect much of a workload even if a role materializes.

Packers RB AJ Dillon rushed three times for 17 yards and had one reception for 13 yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: Dillon's usage was trending up towards the end of the season, and with both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams set to become free agents, he could take over the lead back role for the Packers in 2021. That being said, HC Matt LaFleur seems to favor RB by committee, so fantasy owners must monitor the situation heading into next year's drafts.

The Green Bay Packers D/ST gave up 31 points and had one sack and three interceptions in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: The Packers D/ST really came together in the second half of 2020, once the secondary got healthy. They scored double-digit points in three straight games to end the season and could be a fantasy-relevant D/ST in 2021.

Packers K Mason Crosby connected on two field goals and both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: Crosby was fantastic in 2020. He didn't miss a field goal and only missed two extra-point attempts. The Packers should remain an offensive powerhouse if Aaron Rodgers is under center, making Crosby a viable starting option in 2021 for fantasy purposes.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling had four receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: MVS put together a solid 2020 season, with over 800 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He's set to hit the free agent market, and it will be interesting to see if a team is willing to pay up for the speedy wideout, despite his tendency to drop the football. Where he ends up will play a significant factor in determining his value for the 2021 fantasy season.

Packers WR Allen Lazard had three receptions for 62 yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: Lazard's 2020 campaign was hindered by a core muscle injury that required surgery and kept him sidelined for six games. He'll likely be a popular sleeper/breakout candidate for 2021 fantasy football if Aaron Rodgers is back under center for the Packers.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan caught all four of his targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: Tonyan finishes his breakout campaign with 668 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Not too shabby for a 2017 undrafted free agent. If Aaron Rodgers is back under center for the Packers in 2021, Tonyan will likely be one of the top five TEs off the board in fantasy drafts.

Packers WR Davante Adams had nine receptions for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: Adams was targeted in the red zone on three straight plays in the second quarter, but he couldn't get his feet down on one, and another pass went straight through the star wideout's hands. The Bucs had a good gameplan for Adams and kept Rodgers uncomfortable in the pocket all game, forcing him to make short throws underneath. Adams finished the season with 1507 receiving yards and a whopping 20 touchdowns (including the post-season). His 10.85 targets per game make him the most reliable WR in fantasy, and he should be the top overall receiver drafted in 2021.

Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown caught one pass for 27 yards in the Packers' win over the Rams on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has yet to prove himself in the NFL, but his size and speed are compelling. We'll have to wait and see if Brown can show improvement heading into the final year of his four-year contract. At this point in time, Brown cannot be considered an option for fantasy.

David Bakhtiari suffered a knee injury, which is believed to be a torn ACL, during practice on Thursday, per Ian Rapoport. His season is finished. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a massive loss for the Packers with the playoffs around the corner and due to the injury occurring so late in the season it puts his 2021 start in doubt. Bakhtiari had just signed a four-year extension back in November, which made him the highest paid lineman in the league. Elgton Jenkins could kick over to tackle to help protect Aaron Rodgers blindside.

Tavon Austin caught both of his targets for eight yards in the Packers’ 31-24 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Making his Packers’ debut, the gadget back nabbed a pair of receptions and returned a punt for Green Bay. He’s unlikely to see much volume as a receiver, and he’s most likely to make his mark on special teams.
