He has been their top receiver for years and it would be difficult to replace his production.
However, a team that has Aaron Rodgers at quarterback will always have a chance to win.
His accuracy will ensure that the targets will get the ball even through tight windows.
One of their new players is wide receiver Sammy Watkins and he will likely have a big season in 2022.

In the above video, Watkins lined up and ran a curl route before grabbing the ball and taking off to the end zone.
Packers fans hope that he can repeat that sequence during games even if there are defenders covering him.
Watkins’ numbers may not be as explosive as Adams but he still gets the job done.
Playing with Rodgers will also benefit him because his quarterback will place the ball where only he can catch it.
Therefore, Watkins’ role with the Packers is crucial and it could spell the difference between success and failure.
A Different Packers Receiving Corps
Before, Adams dominated the ball distribution because of his talent.
But this year, Green Bay’s receiving unit will be different because it would take all of them to succeed.
Lazard could be in for a breakout year after taking over Adams as the top wide receiver.
Meanwhile, Watkins’ acceleration can still help stretch the field to either complete long throws or act as a decoy for his teammates.
Therefore, the Packers are ready to dominate in the NFC again.
