2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL PLAYER ANALYZER: DAVANTE ADAMS WR GREEN BAY PACKERS

Davante Adams it is now your time to shine.  Jordy Nelson has left town, Aaron Rodgers is healthy, and Adams has the full mantle of being the number 1 receiver on the always explosive Green Bay Packers passing offense.  When it comes to 2018 fantasy football drafts, few players carry with them more hype/upside than Adams who finally started coming into his own last season after some earlier inconsistency since being drafted in the second round back in 2014 by the team.  The ironic thing is that Adams really found himself while Rodgers missed the majority of 2017 due to a broken collarbone and the following output has set him up for even better numbers this season:

74 catches
885 yards
10 TD

The best part of the whole equation is that in addition to the uptick in numbers the last two seasons, Adams will now for the first time serve as the clear number 1 widoeut on the Packers after Nelson left for the Oakland Raiders in free agency.  Nelson of course was a TD monster and even a PPR gem as well when he served as Rodgers' top target and Adams is very capable of similar numbers as well this season.  That puts Adams on the mantle of being a number one WR in all fantasy football leagues and he should have equal potency both in standard and in PPR given the fact he should be in line for a lot of scores and catches.  The late second-round is the best time to start looking Adams' way and if you can nab him in Round 3, you did even better.

2018 PROJECTION:  88 catches 1,138 yards 11 TD
