The 2021 NFL MVP will return to Green Bay for the 2022 season. Aaron Rodgers threw for 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns, and only four interceptions last year. He will need Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, and ROOKIE(S)?? to step up and fill the shoes of Davante Adams to have as big of a season. Aaron Jones and AJ Dillion shared the backfield last year for the Packers. Jones finished the regular season with 171 rushing attempts, 799 rushing yards, 391 receiving yards, and 10 total touchdowns. Dillion had 187 rushing attempts, 803 rushing yards, 313 receiving yards, and 7 total touchdowns.
Davante Adams was clearly the biggest story out of Green Bay this off-season. The Packers are losing their number one wide receiver and Rodger’s favorite target. Adams finished the 2021 season with 1,553 yards and 11 touchdowns. Can ROOKIE make this big of an impact in 2022?

Fantasy football impact
The Packers skipped out on drafting a receiver in the first round but traded up to nab Christian Watson out of North Dakota State. He’s a talented prospect coming from the FCS powerhouse program. Consider both him and fourth-round receiver Romeo Doubs as potential late-round picks in your fantasy leagues. Anything is possible with Aaron Rodgers.
