Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers reiterated recently that he remains uncertain about his future with the franchise. 'So far, (the Packers have) definitely been my team,' Rodgers told ESPN in a video interview posted Friday, April 2. 'I said last year I didn't know if that was actually possible to be able to finish (my career with Green Bay). I still feel like that's kind of where we're at. I don't that a lot of that is in my hands, but ... we'll kind of see as we go. Like I said last year, these things are just out of my control. The team has obviously the power to do what they want. My job is just to play as well as I can. I think there may have been ideas about what certain things meant last year; I just focus on my play.'
Huddle Up: At age 36, Rodgers enjoyed a dazzling rebound season in 2020, tossing a career-high 48 TD passes, finishing second among QBs in total fantasy points and garnering his third career MVP award. Some regression can be expected so don't overpay in fantasy drafts, but Rodgers does remain a solid mid-to-lower-end QB1.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is talking with the team about possibly restructuring his contract in order to create some salary cap space with the team.
Huddle Up: Rodgers will be the starting quarterback for at least one more season and will have most of his pass catchers back next season. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent TE Robert Tonyan was tendered at the second-round level Tuesday, March 16. The tender is expected to be worth $3.384 million.
Huddle Up: It pretty much guarantees Tonyan will be back with Green Bay and is welcome news for fantasy owners after seeing some high-profile free-agent tight ends lose fantasy value during the legal tampering period. Tonyan could easily be a top-five tight end again in 2021 if he can maintain his incredible touchdown rate, which is a strong possibility if Green Bay doesn't add anyone of note at receiver opposite Davante Adams.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Packers Sunday, March 14, worth $48 million. The deal includes a $13 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Jones will continue to be the main running back for the Packers for the foreseeable future. He will share some playing with AJ Dillon but should be at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/14/2021 6:23 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Aaron Jones is a player the Packers want to re-sign, but one of the issues appears to be the Packers are not willing to pay Jones like one of the top running backs in the NFL, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Huddle Up: Jones should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the market, but the Packers still have a few days to reach an agreement. Jones should be a starting running back for a team and can be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/10/2021 1:20 am UTC
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones is still in talks with the team regarding a long-term contract, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Tuesday, March 9. Rapoport reports the Packers believe Jones 'is part of their future.'
Huddle Up: Jones, 26, led the NFL with 19 total touchdowns in 2019 and scored another 11 combined rushing and receiving TDs in 2020. He has 533 total touches over the last two seasons, but he was sparsely used his first two years in the league and should have plenty left to offer. He's clearly a great fit in the Green Bay offense, and fantasy managers should be happy if he stays for the 2021 season and beyond.

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent TE Robert Tonyan likely will receive the second-round tender offer this offseason.
Huddle Up: Tonyan was a solid contributor in the passing game this season and should have a similar role next season. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/08/2021 7:21 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers exclusive rights free-agent WR Allen Lazard will receive a tender offer this offseason.
Huddle Up: Lazard was limited to 10 games this season but finished with 451 yards and three touchdowns. He should have a solid role in the passing game and could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/03/2021 1:25 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Devin Funchess hasn't shared his intentions for the 2021 season with the team after opting out of the 2020 campaign, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett Tuesday, March 2. He remains under contract.
Huddle Up: The Packers may not have as much of a need for Funchess after the emergence of WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling in 2020. WR Allen Lazard projects as the starter opposite Davante Adams. Funchess can be dropped in all dynasty leagues.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones will receive the franchise tag for the 2021 season, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst, if it's what's best for the team. Gutekunst says there are 'usually better ways to avoid it.'
Huddle Up: It's tough to envision a better fantasy situation for Jones in 2021 or beyond. He's a clear RB1 with the Packers but could slip into the RB2 tier in a less efficient offense.
Posted 2/26/2021 2:48 am UTC
Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan was the only tight end to have 50 or more receptions without a drop in 2020.
Huddle Up: Tonyan finished with 11 receiving touchdowns, tying him for the most among tight ends and fifth in the NFL. While he might not pile up as many yards as some other players at the position, his nose for the end zone should keep him firmly in the TE1 mix in 2021.
Posted 2/24/2021 5:23 am UTC
Impending free-agent RB Aaron Jones (Packers) reportedly has the Miami Dolphins listed among the teams he is willing to consider in free agency, and a league source confirms the team is also interested in signing Jones, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Huddle Up: Miami is expected to enter free agency with about $26 million in cap space and could create another $36 million in cap space by restructuring a few contracts of their free-agent additions from last year and parting with a few other veterans such as receivers Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns. Jones would likely take a hit in efficiency if he signs with the Dolphins, but he could easily make up for it with the kind of volume Myles Gaskin enjoyed in 2020, leaving him as a potential high-end RB2 in fantasy next season.
Posted 2/22/2021 7:29 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling will have his 2021 salary increase to $2.183 million because of the proven performance escalator.
Huddle Up: Valdes-Scantling averaged 20.9 yards per catch this season and finished with 690 yards and six touchdowns, which are both career highs. He should continue to be a deep threat for the Packer and could be a late round pick in fantasy drafts.
Posted 2/21/2021 6:04 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers likely will be asked to restructure his contract this offseason so the team can create some salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Rodgers has thrown for at least 4,000 in four of the last five seasons and threw a career-high 48 touchdowns in 2021. He will have most of his pass catchers back next season and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted 2/08/2021 8:43 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Aaron Jones would be open to signing with the Miami Dolphins if he does not return to the Packers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Dolphins used multiple running backs this past season, but Jones probably would receive most of the work if he signed with Miami. Jones should see a solid workload no matter where he signs and can be at No. 2 running back in most leagues.
Posted 2/07/2021 4:07 am UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was named The Associated Press Most Valuable Player Saturday, Feb. 6, for the third time in his career.
Huddle Up: After a couple of years of modest production by his standards, Rodgers rebounded to lead the NFL with a career-high 48 touchdown passes. He left no doubt that he still deserves to be considered an every-week fantasy starter heading into 2021.
Posted 2/07/2021 12:42 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams is a candidate for a contract extension this offseason because the team can reduce his 2021 salary cap number with a new contract.
Huddle Up: Adams has been one of the top receivers in the NFL for the last several season and will continue his strong play next season if Aaron Rodgers returns. He should be one of the first receivers selected in fantasy drafts next season.
Posted 2/07/2021 12:38 am UTC
Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon could be the starting running back for the Packers next season if impending free-agent RBs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are not re-signed this offseason.
Huddle Up: Dillon rushed for 242 yards and two touchdowns in limited playing time this season but would be a big part of the offense if Jones and Williams leave. Dillon would be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back if he takes over the starting job.
Posted 2/01/2021 7:17 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones is 'absolutely everything we want in a professional football player,' according to general manager Brian Gutekunst, who expressed the team's desire to get a deal done with Jones on Monday, Feb. 1, before he hits free agency this spring.
Huddle Up: The Packers reportedly offered Jones a top-five running back contract at some point in the last year, but the two sides could not come to an agreement. With Jamaal Williams also headed toward free agency and almost no talk of him returning, it could leave Green Bay with AJ Dillon and little else in the backfield going into the draft. If that's the way things turn out, Dillon will be a popular fantasy sleeper in 2021 drafts even if the Packers add a back who can help him occasionally on passing downs.
Posted 2/01/2021 3:43 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is going to be with the Packers 'for a long time,' according to head coach Matt LaFleur. 'Is that a trick question? Absolutely,' LaFleur said. 'There's no doubt about it. You're talking about the guy who's going to win the MVP of the league. We're not in this position without him.'
Huddle Up: The Packers are unlikely to move Rodgers this offseason, and he'll be among the top-five options at the position in fantasy next year.
Posted 1/26/2021 8:48 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is almost certain to remain with the team in 2021, according to comments made by team president and chief executive officer Mark Murphy on Tuesday, Jan. 26. 'I'll say this: There's no way in heck that Aaron is not going to be on the Packers. I mean, he is going to be the MVP of the league, might have had his best year ever. He's our unquestioned leader and, you know, we're not idiots,' Murphy told WNFL Radio.
Huddle Up: Rodgers' comments during a postgame presser about his future (or lack thereof) following Green Bay's loss in the NFC Championship set off a firestorm of speculation, but there isn't much reason to believe either side wants a trade to happen. First-round pick Jordan Love is nowhere near ready to take over as the starter yet by all accounts, the Packers are one of the best teams in the league and Rodgers' contract runs through the end of the 2023 season.
Posted 1/24/2021 11:24 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33-of-48 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Aaron Jones, who left the game early due to injury, left the team with 27 yards on six rushes. RB Jamaal Williams ran seven times for 23 yards and added four receptions for 22 yards. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the way with a game-high 115 yards on four receptions and a score, while WR Davante Adams had nine grabs for 67 yards and a score on 15 targets. WR Allen Lazard checked in with three receptions for 62 yards, while TE Marcedes Lewis had three grabs for 28 yards. TE Robert Tonyan also checked in with four grabs, 22 yards and a score. CB Jaire Alexander led the way with two interceptions, while totaling three total tackles and three passes defensed.
Posted 1/24/2021 9:58 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (chest) suffered a chest injury during the NFC Championship game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Jamaal Williams will serve as the main running back for the Packers while Jones is sidelined and will have fantasy value if the Packers advance in the playoffs.
Posted 1/23/2021 8:10 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leads the league this season with 42 touchdown passes throwing from a clean pocket, per Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Another point underscoring the importance of pressuring Rodgers, who endured his worst game (35.4 passer rating, 160 yards, 0 TDs, 2 interceptions) of the season in the 38-10 Week 6 loss to the Bucs in Tampa. Rodgers was sacked four times in the game, his second-highest total of the season.
Posted 1/22/2021 11:22 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (back, wrist) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 22, but is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Lazard was a big part of the passing game last week and should see some targets in the passing game this week. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/22/2021 3:46 am UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams led the NFL with 23 red zone receptions and 14 red zone touchdowns in 2020, and his 46 red zone touchdowns since 2016 are 17 more than any other player.
Huddle Up: Adams led the NFL with 18 receiving touchdowns, tied for second with 115 receptions and finished in a tie for fifth in receiving yards. His status as the unquestioned go-to target for Aaron Rodgers should continue to make him one of the safest fantasy options at any position for the foreseeable future.
Posted 1/22/2021 2:39 am UTC
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers led the NFL with 1,242 yards on passes thrown more than 20 yards downfield during the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: Rodgers also led the league in touchdown passes in a season that could net him MVP honors for the third time and a second Super Bowl ring. After seeing his numbers dip a bit the last couple of years, he is back in the mix of top-five fantasy options at the quarterback position heading into next season.
Posted 1/21/2021 11:30 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (back, wrist) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: Lazard is coming off one of his best games of the season and should see a handful of targets in the NFC Championship game. He can be a flex option in some fantasy leagues.
Posted 1/21/2021 3:28 am UTC
Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon (quad) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Dillon left Green Bay's Divisional Round win in the fourth quarter after taking a hit to his quad and did not return, so it's a good sign for his availability this weekend that he begins the week with some on-field work. The matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is not a great one, however. The rookie should see some snaps as Green Bay is making good on its promise to cycle through all three of its running backs, but he figures to be a poor bet for more than six or eight touches unless Aaron Jones or Jamaal Williams get hurt.
Posted 1/20/2021 10:20 pm UTC
Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (wrist, back) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Lazard was a surprise start of the NFC Divisional Round win over the Los Angeles Rams, finishing with four catches for 96 yards and a touchdown on a season-high matching eight targets. He sealed the game in the fourth quarter with the bulk of his production coming on a 58-yard catch-and-run TD. He'll be a risky fantasy option in any format for the NFC Championship.
