  • Sean Clifford Will Get Chance At No. 2 Job

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Sean Clifford will have a chance to earn the No. 2 job behind Jordan Love to begin the season. Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said Danny Etling and Clifford will both get a chance to earn the spot in camp. The organization wants to see what they have in these young players before they consider bringing in a veteran quarterback. Etling is a former Patriots wide receiver, while Clifford was drafted in the fifth-round out of Penn State during this year's draft. These two players could be the fall back plans if Love doesn't pan out this upcoming season. On paper, neither player offers much upside, so fantasy managers probably shouldn't bother trying to slash Etling or Clifford.

  • Aaron Jones "Hasn't Missed A Beat"

    According to Packers running backs coach Ben Sirmans, Aaron Jones "hasn't missed a beat," a statement he made during a recent practice session. "He's still going as fast and hard as anybody out there," Sirmans said. "He's flying around faster than anybody in that room." Jones is entering his seventh year after finishing 2022 with another 1,000-yard-plus rushing season, adding seven total touchdowns. It could be an adjustment period for the 28-year-old, as he'll no longer have Aaron Rodgers under center. However, there's no denying his massive upside. Jones' ability to catch passes is an added perk for PPR managers.

  • Samori Toure, Jayden Reed To Battle For No. 3 Job

    Barring the addition of a veteran receiver, Green Bay Packers wide receivers Samori Toure and rookie Jayden Reed are expected to battle for the No. 3 job behind Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, beginning in organized team activities. Toure was only targeted 10 times in 2022, catching five of them for 82 yards and a touchdown. Toure will have an opportunity, but Reed was taken in the second round of the draft for a reason, with his speed, hands and route-running abilities standing out at Michigan State. The rookie is a candidate to fill the slot role after Randall Cobb's departure. Reed is undersized at 5-foot-11, 187 pounds, but his skills are intriguing for those looking to take a late flier in dynasty/keeper leagues.

  • Aaron Jones Working With Jordan Love This Offseason

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones said he wanted to throw with quarterback Jordan Love in California this offseason to get their timing down. "He has everybody's full trust," Jones said of Love. With Aaron Rodgers now in New York, Love will take over as Green Bay's full-time starter in 2023. The Packers offense isn't expected to be as consistent with Love in there, but the 28-year-old Jones should be relied on heavily in Love's first full season as the starter. Jones had only two touchdowns on the ground in 2022 despite rushing for over 1,000 yards, and he had five receiving scores and 395 yards through the air. He will still be useful in fantasy, but Jones' ceiling will certainly be lower moving from Rodgers to Love.

  • Romeo Doubs Could Lead Team In Catches

    The Athletic's Matt Schneidman predicts that Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs will lead the team in catches in 2023 in quarterback Jordan Love's first full season as the starter under center. After Doubs, Scheidman goes with Christian Watson, running back Aaron Jones, rookie tight end Luke Musgrave and rookie receiver Jayden Reed. Doubs finished his rookie year in 2022 with 42 receptions for 425 yards and three touchdowns, and he wasn't as heavily involved in the passing attack as Watson. However, Doubs and Love could have more chemistry than we know, so that's something to watch once training camp kicks off in late July. If Doubs becomes a favorite target for Love, he will slowly start to rise up draft boards.

  • Jayden Reed Could Play The Slot Right Away

    Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Jayden Reed gives the team's receiver room something it doesn't have in terms of size and speed, and he could play the slot right away in his first NFL season. Reed was taken in the second round of this year's draft. The 23-year-old stands at 5-foot-11, 187 pounds, and while his production probably won't stand out, he definitely has the skillset to become a starter quickly for an inexperienced Packers receiving corps. He could also factor into the team's return game on special teams. There's a good chance that Reed immediately becomes one of the team's three starting receivers in 2023, but that doesn't mean he'll be a productive fantasy starter in his rookie year.

  • David Bakhtiari Unlikely To Be Traded

    The Athletic's Matt Schneidman thinks the odds are astronomically low that left tackle David Bakhtiari is traded during the 2023 season. However, there's a much greater chance that the team looks to get rid of him next offseason, but the Packers won't need to move on from him just because of the direction the team is heading age-wise. Cutting Bakhtiari after this season would free up $21.5 million in salary cap space ahead of the final year on a contract extension he signed in 2020. The 31-year-old was one of the league's best offensive tackles in 2022 when he was healthy, but this season will be about proving that he can stay healthy.

  • Luke Musgrave Could Be Day-1 Starter

    Green Bay Packers tight end Luke Musgrave has a chance to be an immediate impact player for this roster. The Athletic's Matt Schneidman believes Musgrave should get a chance to be the No. 1 tight end right away. The Packers selected Musgrave in the second round with the No. 42 overall pick. Musgrove hauled in 11 receptions, 169 yards, and one touchdown in two games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. The Oregon State product has the potential to be a legitimate starter in the league. The Packers don't have much depth at tight end due to the departure of Robert Tonyan. Musgrave could be a sneaky option during the late-rounds on draft day.

  • Packers Not Expected To Add Veteran Backup QB

    The Green Bay Packers aren't expected to add a veteran backup quarterback behind Jordan Love, who is entering his first full season as the team's starter with Aaron Rodgers now in New York. The Packers want to see how the dynamic between Love, returning practice-squad QB Danny Etling and rookie fifth-rounder Sean Clifford evolves. Bringing in a veteran signal-caller would only take time away from the work that the young trio needs in the team's offseason program and organized team activity practices. "I like that room right now and all those guys need reps, so I think we'll probably see how these guys do before we think about bringing in a veteran right away," general manager Brian Gutekunst said after the draft last week.

  • Packers, Jordan Love Agree On One-Year Extension

    The Green Bay Packers and quarterback Jordan Love agreed on a one-year contract extension worth up to $22.5 million on Tuesday, according to a source. The deal includes $13.5 million fully guaranteed. The extension takes the place of a $20.3 million salary for 2024 on a fifth-year option. With Aaron Rodgers now in New York, the starting job in Green Bay is finally Love's in 2023. The 24-year-old has weapons around him in the offense, albeit on the young and inexperienced side for the receiving corps. There will surely be ups and downs for Love in his first full season as a starter in the NFL after the Packers spent a first-rounder on him in 2020. Fantasy managers should consider him a low-end QB2 with upside heading into this year.

  • Adrian Amos Could Return To Packers

    Free-agent safety Adrian Amos might be back with the Green Bay Packers soon. Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst told reporters they aren't closing the door on Amos returning to the team. The Packers have failed to address the safety position with Rudy Ford and Darnell Savage at the top of the depth chart. Amos has spent each of the last four seasons with Green Bay. The 30-year-old has been a reliable option for them, so it wouldn't be shocking to see the organization decide to bring him back. It sounds like the Packers continue to remain in communication with Amos.

  • Packers Working On Fifth-Year Option Talks With Jordan Love

    Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said he's still working on the fifth-year option talks with quarterback Jordan Love. The Packers may be looking for some salary cap relief from Love in 2023 and 2024. Both sides have until Tuesday to get it done. Now that future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers is officially a New York Jet, Love is heading into his first season as Green Bay's starter under center after biding his time waiting and learning behind Rodgers. The 24-year-old only has 83 pass attempts in his three NFL seasons, but he impressed in limited action in 2022 and has the front office's and coaching staff's faith. Still, he needs to earn fantasy managers' faith before they consider him anything more than a low-end QB2 with upside.
