Packers: Three players who need to stay healthy in 2019
2. Davante Adams
Similarly, the Packers didn’t make many changes at wide receiver this offseason. While this does show confidence in the young talent already on the roster, there is some uncertainty on the depth chart after Davante Adams. Do the Packers have a wide receiver on the roster who could step up if Adams missed any time?
Star players are hard to replace at any position for any team. But if Adams, who had 111 receptions for 1,386 yards while also finishing with the league’s second-most touchdown catches with 13, gets injured, depth will be a real concern for the Packers at wide receiver.
Geronimo Allison stepped up and was outstanding as the number two receiver before he got hurt last year, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown both played well as third and fourth receivers on the roster, but Adams led the way.
Outside of Aaron Rodgers, Adams and David Bakhtiari are both so important to the team’s success on offense. They can’t afford to lose either player for too long.
But I do like the depth the Packers have added to the offensive line, so even without Bakhtiari they could be OK. But without Adams, who would step up at wide receiver?
