The Green Bay Packers will likely carry two quarterbacks -- QBs Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love -- on their roster once again in 2022, The Athletic's Matt Schneidman speculates.
Huddle Up: Love will once again be the primary backup to Rodgers, but his future beyond that will hinge on if the veteran signal-caller retires. The Packers will have to make a decision on Love's fifth-year option in 2023, also. The 2020 first-round pick is barely hanging on as a bench stash in dynasty formats.

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon should see his role expand in 2022, Zach Kruse of Packers Wire writes. "The Packers gave [Dillon] 221 touches but he could handle much more. Expect his role to expand. There's a good chance Dillon and Jones will handle 500 or more total touches in 2022."
Huddle Up: Dillon is fresh off a breakout campaign in which he tallied 1,116 total yards (803 rushing) and seven touchdowns (five rushing), finishing as RB23. The third-year pro is a must-have player for Aaron Jones owners, but he'll also offer standalone value as a flex play and could flirt with every-week RB2 status if his role does expand.

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan (knee) did not participate in drills during June minicamp.
Huddle Up: Tonyan is expected to be ready for Week 1, but fantasy owners should keep an eye on his status during training camp. If healthy, he should have a bigger role in the passing game following the departure of Davante Adams. Tonyan hauled in 11 touchdowns in 2020 and could be a sneaky TE1 candidate this season.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard signed his one-year restricted free-agent tender worth a reported $3.986 million on Monday, June 13.
Huddle Up: Lazard seems to be the popular choice for WR1 duties in Green Bay following the trade of Davante Adams earlier this offseason. It is highly debatable if that will actually end up being the case, but one thing he has going for him is the amount of time he has under his belt working with Aaron Rodgers. At the very least, signing his tender now means he won't miss any more time than he already has to strengthen that connection. Consider him a WR4 with some upside for fantasy purposes right now.

Green Bay Packers WR Sammy Watkins is "going to be a big part of our offense," head coach Matt LaFleur said on Wednesday, June 8.
Huddle Up: Watkins has the potential to be the No. 1 option and put up good numbers in Green Bay thanks to the Packers' inexperience and overall wide open situation at the wide receiver position. However, Watkins' past with injuries and his entrance into a new offense remain concerns. For now, he's a fringe WR3 with upside and a late-round target in re-draft leagues.

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent WR Allen Lazard is not participating in the team's mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 7.
Huddle Up: Because Lazard has yet to sign his RFA tender, he is not required to be at minicamp. This is a much bigger deal than it would have been in years past, as Lazard could enter training camp as Aaron Rodgers' favorite target. It seems very likely Lazard will sign his tender before the start of camp, but the better question is if missing this time with Rodgers will result in the veteran quarterback building trust in someone like Sammy Watkins or Christian Watson sooner. Lazard should be considered a WR4 with upside for now in early summer drafts.
Posted 6/06/2022 1:12 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who skipped voluntary workouts, arrived at the stadium Monday, June 6, for mandatory minicamp.
Huddle Up: Rodgers was eighth at the position in fantasy points in a season that he threw 37 touchdowns and only four interceptions. That's crazy, but the evolution of the position and his reduced running has hurt his value. He's a midrange option that has some bust potential with the lack of proven receivers.
Posted 6/05/2022 10:37 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson has been struggling with drops in practice this offseason.
Huddle Up: So did Ja'Marr Chase before lighting the NFL on fire in his first season. Until the drops start coming in real games, there's nothing to be concerned about here. Watson is a borderline first-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts and enters the 2022 campaign as a WR3 with upside.
Posted 6/04/2022 4:49 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers recently went into detail about the possibility of retirement. "I think about [retirement] all the time," Rodgers said. "The football part is the easy part... That's the joy. It's the other stuff that wears on you and makes you think about life after football. [Tom Brady] obviously set the bar so high with playing so many years, but I can definitely see the end coming."
Huddle Up: Rodgers is under contract through 2026 but it's doubtful he'll play that long. Pencil the veteran in as a shaky QB1 going into 2022 thanks to the departure of Davante Adams and an uncertain situation at wide receiver in Green Bay overall.
Posted 6/01/2022 3:07 am GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson is receiving rave reviews from his offensive coordinator, Adam Stenavich. "His combination of size and speed is great," Stenavich said. "He's a big guy. He can move. He's going to be a problem once he figures things out."
Huddle Up: The key words there are "once he figures things out." Watson could have a large role in his first season with the uncertainty at the wide receiver position in Green Bay, but that will be determined by how quickly he picks things up. Watson should be a first-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts and is a WR3 until we get more confirmation on his role.
Posted 5/28/2022 2:23 am GMT
Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan (knee) worked on the sidelines during the first week of OTAs as he continues to rehab from knee surgery.
Huddle Up: It has been good news for Tonyan this offseason, and he should be ready for Week 1 unless he suffers a setback. He was having a quiet 2021 campaign prior to his injury, but with Davante Adams now out of the picture, Aaron Rodgers could lean on Tonyan, especially in the red zone. He caught 11 touchdowns in 2020 and could be a sneaky TE1 candidate.
Posted 5/21/2022 7:45 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Amari Rodgers is gaining confidence ahead of his second season, wide receivers coach Jason Vrable said. "He's taking those steps right now. I feel really good about Amari," Vrable said. "[Randall Cobb] bumped me the other day and was like, 'Yo, you can feel it from him.' I just smiled. It's just the start right now."
Huddle Up: Rodgers will have every opportunity to seize a role in the passing game thanks to a wide-open situation at receiver in Green Bay. However, he's currently a bench stash at best until this situation clears up.
Posted 5/05/2022 6:06 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Christian Watson could be used in a variety of ways outside of simply being a boundary WR, in the opinion of Zack Kruse of Packers Wire. ''Watson is also versatile. He played snaps at running back for NDSU, and he was an All-American kick returner. In LaFleur's offense, Watson could be used as a perimeter deep threat, gadget weapon or even in the backfield,'' said Kruse.
Huddle Up: An elite athlete, Watson has the potential to do more than just catch passes. In a barren WR room following the Davante Adams trade, the opportunity for playing time will be there for the 6-foot-4 Watson. He still has work to do when it comes to developing his skills as a route runner, but if the Packers are intent on getting him the ball in other ways as well, it could be a nice boost to his fantasy value. Given the vacancy of targets in Green Bay and his elite athleticism, Watson will be one to watch as a WR4/5 sleeper come draft season once we get more information about his true role.

Nevada WR Romeo Doubs was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 132nd overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Doubs has a chance to earn a solid role in the offense because of his big play ability. Fantasy players can monitor his progress during training camp because he could be a possible late round option in deeper leagues.
Posted 4/29/2022 11:20 pm GMT
North Dakota State WR Christian Watson was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 34th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Packers have lost multiple receivers this offseason, so Watson has a good chance to earn a big role as a rookie. He will be playing with one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.
Posted 4/18/2022 9:19 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent WR Allen Lazard has not signed his tender offer at this point.
Huddle Up: Lazard will miss the start of offseason workouts since he is not under contract, but he should sign at some point this offseason. He has a good chance to be one of the starting receivers for the Packers in 2022 and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Posted 4/16/2022 5:59 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers WR Sammy Watkins could be anything from the team's No. 1 wideout to a 53-man roster cut, in the opinion of The Athletic's Matt Schneidman.
Huddle Up: Watkins is the definition of a wild card in 2022. Aaron Rodgers loves his veteran receivers, but Watkins has had issues staying healthy, and it's likely the Packers add more help at the position in free agency and/or the 2022 NFL Draft. For now, Watkins is a fringe WR3.
Posted 4/14/2022 6:19 pm GMT
Free-agent WR Sammy Watkins (Ravens) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $4 million with the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, April 14.
Huddle Up: This is unlikely to stop Green Bay from adding a receiver or two on Day 1 or Day 2 of the draft in a couple of weeks. With that said, Watkins at least offers a steady complementary option - albeit one with a tendency to get hurt - to a depth chart that has lost Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling this offseason. For now, he appears to be in line to start opposite Allen Lazard, although much will depend on whom the Packers draft.
Posted 3/31/2022 12:26 am GMT
Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan (knee) is believed to be ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Tonyan will be ready for training camp. He should be a bigger part of the passing game with Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling no longer on the team and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/15/2022 3:04 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent WR Allen Lazard was given a second-round tender worth around $4 million for one year Tuesday, March 15.
Huddle Up: Lazard had eight TDs to go with 40 grabs for 513 yards. His role could expand more depending on what the team does the rest of the offseason. He'll be a in the WR3-WR4 mix in fantasy.
Posted 3/15/2022 12:44 pm GMT
Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' new contract was finalized Tuesday, March 15. It's a four-year extension with two placeholder years on the back end. The deal lowers his cap number.
Huddle Up: Davante Adams said he's not going to play on the franchise tag. Does Rodgers' deal create the room needed to sign Adams? He'll need him to remain a top-five QB in fantasy.
Posted 3/10/2022 2:41 am GMT
Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent WR Allen Lazard likely will receive the second-round tender offer this offseason, in the opinion of's Rob Demovsky.
Huddle Up: Lazard is coming off a season with 513 receiving yards and eight touchdowns and could receive a bigger role next season if Randall Cobb does not return. He could be a late round option in deeper leagues.
Posted 3/08/2022 7:58 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love could bring back a second-round pick in a trade, according to multiple NFL scouts via Senior Bowl executive director (and former scout) Jim Nagy.
Huddle Up: With Aaron Rodgers reportedly agreeing to a four-year contract in the neighborhood of $200 million, Love isn't going to see the field for any length of time again - barring a significant injury to Rodgers - before his rookie contract expires at the end of the 2023 season. This is probably the year for Green Bay to test Love's market, as the free-agent class is uninspiring and the draft class does not boast a true blue-chip prospect. Expect the Denver Broncos to show some interest if new head coach (and former Packers offensive coordinator) Nathaniel Hackett liked working with Love in Green Bay.
Posted 3/08/2022 4:43 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers agreed to a four-year, $200 million deal Tuesday, March 8, that makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history. He'll receive $153 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: This should answer lingering questions about his future. The deal should open enough space to franchise tag Davante Adams, and things are status quo for the high-end QB1 in fantasy.
Posted 3/06/2022 7:16 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' potential landing spots have been narrowed down to the Packers, Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. He wrote, 'Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Rodgers has specific deals lined up with other teams -- and those teams have trade compensation lined up with the Packers. The potential moves have been arranged, essentially, with the permission of the Packers.'
Huddle Up: There's really not much to say about his fantasy worth without knowing where he'll play, but none of the situations are terrible. It would be best for his stock to remain with the Packers, although a move to Denver would provide ample weapons out of the gate and a familiar coaching connection. Pittsburgh's weaponry isn't as stout, but we're confident the Steelers could lure some additional help in free agency if Rodgers were to wind up there. Tennessee is intriguing. The line is solid, the receiving corps has playmakers, and Derrick Henry's presence is an undeniable reality for defensive attention. Any of these locations would keep Rodgers in the middle of QB1 territory.
Posted 3/05/2022 2:51 am GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has still not decided where he wants to play next season, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It seems like Rodgers would be staying with the Packers, but he appears undecided about his future. He likely will be making his decision in the near future, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. He is coming of an MVP season in 2021 and should be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he decides to play next season.
Posted 3/03/2022 9:26 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers remaining in a Packers' uniform next season and beyond 'seems to be the worst-kept secret at the NFL Combine,' according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: This has been the prevailing opinion for weeks. However, there is the small issue of trying to fit Rodgers, who may end up being the highest-paid player in the league, and Davante Adams, who will likely be the league's highest-paid receiver if he isn't franchise-tagged, on a roster that still needs to clear nearly $32 million over the next week or so to get under the salary cap. Needless to say, Green Bay has some work to do, but it appears the Packers will be doing it with the four-time MVP under center.
Posted 3/01/2022 7:40 pm GMT
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is reportedly negotiating a 'short-term deal' with the team that would make him the highest-paid player in the league, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
Huddle Up: Teams can usually find a way to clear money off their cap for a player they really want to keep. The problem in Green Bay right now is that the Packers are still roughly $32 million over the cap and want to bring back Davante Adams, who will likely bring a cap charge of over $20 million if he is franchised. None of this accounts for the additional room needed to accommodate a huge deal for Rodgers. Needless to say, Green Bay has a lot of work to do over the next week or so if it wants to keep Rodgers and Adams together for at least one more year.
