Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught five of his seven targets for 56 yards in a 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.
Huddle Up: It is no surprise that Adams had a pedestrian impact in a game that saw Aaron Rodgers post his worst stat line in recent memory. Look for Adams and the entire Green Bay offense to return to form against the Detroit Lions in Week 2.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said there's no chance of a contract extension before the start of the season.
Huddle Up: Adams is essentially in a contract year then as it looks like he and Aaron Rodgers could be all-in for this year and out the next. He's a must-start every week.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams rejected the notion that he will re-sign with the Packers at a discount if Aaron Rodgers remains with the team in 2022.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams is reportedly 'willing to listen to any contract discussions the team would like to have,' according to multiple sources via ESPN's Adam Schefter. Adams and the representation recently broke off talks with the team.
Huddle Up: It's funny how quickly things turn around when there is a sliver of clarity on the Aaron Rodgers front. Assuming Rodgers' situation becomes clear - at least for this season - and Jordan Love shows something in the preseason, expect a deal to get done. DeAndre Hopkins is the highest-paid receiver in the league according to annual average value at $27.25 million, so look for Adams to sign for something in that range when the time comes. As for his fantasy prospects in 2021, he is easily worth a first-round pick as long as he is tied to Rodgers' hip.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams has ended long-term extension talks with the team, and there are no plans to resume them. The two sides were negotiating for months, and now they're in a bad place, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Adams is a top-three receiver in fantasy if Aaron Rodgers is throwing to him. If he's not, he may fall back a bit.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said that he hopes and plans to stay with the Packers. 'That's the plan, man,' Adams said. 'I'm not planning on going anywhere. That's only one piece of it, though. Obviously the quarterback situation helps it, but the stars got to align across the board as far as contractually. We'll figure all that stuff out and let it happen. I'll be at training camp like I said regardless, we're going to play the season, and we'll see how all of that pans out.'
Huddle Up: Adams is a top-three receiver in fantasy if Aaron Rodgers is throwing to him. He'll take a hit toward the midrange WR1 area if Rodgers is not there.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams has opened negotiations for a contract extension. Adams confirmed that QB Aaron Rodgers' situation will have an effect on his talks. 'That'll play into it, but there's been talks, just really just talks, but we haven't really done anything or talked about anything that's worth mentioning,' Adams said. 'It's kind of just been the beginning stage of talking, and we'll figure out what happens. Hopefully, something gets figured out, but I'm just there to play ball either way. That stuff will take care of itself eventually.'
Huddle Up: Adams will be a WR1 regardless of where he plays or who throws to him. However, Rodgers' presence makes Adams a top-three option at the position.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said he plans to report to training camp on time even if he does not receive a contract extension before the start of camp.
Huddle Up: Adams is one of the top receivers in the NFL, but his fantasy value will be affected if Aaron Rodgers does not stay with the team. He should still be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues in 2021.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams is expected to participate in the mandatory minicamp this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Adams has skipped the offseason workouts but should practice with the team this week. His fantasy value will depend on if Aaron Rodgers will play for the Packers in 2021. He would be a No. 1 receiver if Rodgers plays but could be a No. 2 fantasy receiver if Rodgers leaves.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams led the league with an average of 2.96 receiving yards per route run in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: Adams has finished as a top-three fantasy wideout in each of his last two seasons in which he's played at least 13 games. But if QB Aaron Rodgers were to depart this offseason, Adams would have a tough time maintaining his WR1 status with a replacement-level quarterback stepping in, and that possibility has to be baked into his draft value.
