2021 Fantasy Outlook
Not only did Love not see the field last season, the 26th overall pick in last year's draft couldn't even earn the backup job to Aaron Rodgers - he was the No. 3 QB most of the season. Love has a strong arm, but scouts criticized his accuracy and vision coming out of Utah State, as he was considered a project. This year, Love figures to move up to No. 2, but only after a good bit of offseason drama nearly left him as the No. 1 (Rodgers decided to stick around another year). Love will have all-world Davante Adams at his disposal if he gets on the field this year, while TE Robert Tonyan proved a good red-zone target last season and Marquez Valdes-Scantling is a downfield threat. At 6-4, 219, Love is big and mobile, which at least helps his fantasy profile if he disappoints as a passer. Read Past Outlooks

December 6, 2021
The Packers placed Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.
ANALYSIS
According to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Love previously disclosed to reporters that he's vaccinated, which means his placement on the list is the result of a breakthrough positive test. Love will be eligible to rejoin the Packers as soon as he's showing diminished symptoms of the virus and tests negative on two occasions at least 24 hours apart, giving him a chance to make it back as the backup to Aaron Rodgers for Sunday's game against the Bears. With Rodgers nursing a toe injury that will likely result in him sitting out portions of practice this week, practice squad quarterback Kurt Benkert could take most of the first-team reps over the next few days.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Love took a step back in his junior season at Utah State following a stellar sophomore campaign, but his skills still made him a first-round pick in many mock drafts. With Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, few pegged Love to end up a Packer, but that's where he landed. The Packers even traded up to select him, so it's clear management likes his potential. Most quarterbacks taken in the first round these days start at some point in their first year, but that's a long shot in Love's case barring a Rodgers injury. Rodgers is under contract for four more seasons, but if the rookie develops like the Packers hope, they could go younger and cheaper at the position at some point in the coming years.
