WRs – Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams
As usual, last week Nelson and Cobb were able to put up superb efforts. Jordy garnered four catches for 80 yards and a TD while Cobb provided the biggest day with six catches and 121 yards with a TD.
What is changing things for the receiving corps is the emergence of Davante Adams. He only had one target last week, but he made the most of it with a catch for 21 yards and a TD. It was his third straight game where he put up at least 7 points in fantasy, and with Aaron Rodgers trusting him more every week.
Expect more of the same from him against New Orleans, with all three of these talented players getting plenty of opportunity to show off their skills and make plays. Nelson and Cobb should lead the way as usual, but Adams should be able to make some solid contributions as well.
Prediction: 120 yards, 1 TD (Nelson), 90 yards, 2 TD (Cobb), 60 yards, 1 TD (Adams)
Verdict: Must-Start (Nelson, Cobb), Start (Adams)
