Green Bay Packers place franchise tag on Davante Adams
The Green Bay Packers have decided to use the franchise tag on Davante Adams in order to keep him with Aaron Rodgers for the 2022 season. The franchise tag has Davante Adams earning $20.145 million. The two teams now have until July 15 to agree on a contract or Adams will play the 2022 season on the tag.
This is the best possible news for Davante Adams’ fantasy value. He and Aaron Rodgers have a special connection on the field. With Green Bay likely losing at least one, possibly both, of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard in free agency, Green Bay is likely to bring in another wide receiver either via free agency or draft a rookie in the NFL Draft. However, this shouldn’t change Adams’ value at all as he is firmly entrenched as the team’s WR1 and Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target.
Adams should remain a top5 fantasy WR for the 2022 season. He should absolutely be selected in the first round of 1QB redraft leagues. He is likely somewhere in the top 5 to top 7 of WRs in dynasty startup leagues.
