Packers Sign Jordan Love To Fully Guaranteed Deal

The Green Bay Packers signed first-round quarterback Jordan Love on Wednesday to a fully guaranteed four-year, $12.383 million deal, according to sources. Love will receive a $6.566 million signing bonus. It's the first time that the No. 26 pick in the draft has received a fully guaranteed deal under the current rookie contract system. The Packers shocked everyone and took Love, the heir apparent to Aaron Rodgers, in the first round in April. While the Utah State alum has some promising physical traits as a dual-threat QB, he was very inconsistent in college and isn't a sure thing at the next level. Rodgers is under contract through the 2023 season as well, so Love is strictly a dynasty/keeper stash and hold.

Packers Sign Second-Rounder A.J. Dillon

Green Bay Packers rookie running back A.J. Dillon announced on his Twitter account on Wednesday that he has signed his rookie deal with the team. The Boston College product ran for 1,685 yards and 14 touchdowns in his final year in college. Dillon finished his college career with 4,382 yards and 38 touchdowns. Green Bay curiously took Dillon in the second round of April's draft when they already have Aaron Jones, who scored a whopping 19 touchdowns in 2019. Dillon will be an interesting complement to Jones in his rookie season, but it's hard to believe he'll see enough weekly touches to be of much use in redraft leagues, especially with Jamaal Williams also in the picture. The 22-year-old also doesn't contribute much in the passing game, which could limit his long-term fantasy appeal.

Aaron Jones Will Work Harder With A.J. Dillon Around

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones, who had a career year in 2019, thinks rookie running back A.J. Dillon's arrival will push him to work even harder entering the 2020 season. The Packers drafted Dillon 62nd overall in the second round back in April. Jones is also entering the last year of his deal, which means that Dillon could become a starter sooner than later if Jones goes elsewhere. But Jones, 26 this December, would love to sign a long-term deal to stay in Green Bay. Another big campaign in 2020 would help his cause. "I know it's the NFL. They're bringing in guys every day to compete so I mean it's just gonna raise my game and I'm excited to have him there and start working with him, teaching him the playbook and everything," Jones said. He is extremely efficient and the best back on the roster. Don't expect a gaudy number of touchdowns again this year, but Jones is at least a high-end RB2 for fantasy owners, even with Dillon added to the mix.

Davante Adams On Track To Be A Packers Great

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams currently ranks 13th in team history in receiving yards, and with another 1,386-yard season like he had in 2018, he would shoot into the top 10. He also ranks eighth in Packers history with 431 receptions and is 10th in touchdown catches with 44. Despite missing four games in 2019 while also being severely limited in others due to turf toe, Adams still finished just three yards shy of 1,000 yards, but he ended the year as the WR23 in PPR formats. However, if he can remain healthy and on the field in 2020, he could easily find himself back in the top-five wideout conversation, making it highly plausible that he surpasses expectations this year.

Za'Darius Smith's Versatility Makes Him Deadly

Green Bay Packers linebacker/edge rusher Za'Darius Smith had the most quarterback pressures (71) last season, according to Next Gen Stats. He was also able to pressure opposing signal-callers at the second-highest overall rate in the NFL (14.8 percent) among those with a minimum of 250 pass rushes. Smith has the ability to line up on the edge and on the interior, too, which makes him extremely hard to game plan for. The 27-year-old was an excellent free-agent pickup for Green Bay in 2019, as he made the Pro Bowl for the first time with 55 tackles (41 solo), a career-high 13.5 sacks, 17 tackles for loss and 37 QB hits. But because he's more of a one-dimensional edge-rushing linebacker, he's hard to recommend as a weekly IDP starter at his position.
