1. Davante Adams, WR
Only DeAndre Hopkins scored more fantasy points in PPR than Davante Adams last season. Adams was dominant — according to Fantasy Data, he had at least 16 fantasy points in every game he played. That’s incredible consistency. But it’s not like he had a low ceiling, either. Adams scored at least 20 fantasy points in PPR on nine occasions, and had over 35 points once.
The exciting part is the consistency Adams has shown over the past three years, catching at least 10 touchdown passes every season since 2016.
Even better news for fantasy managers is that Aaron Rodgers has made clear his plans to get the football in Adams’ hands even more often this season. Opportunity often leads to fantasy success, and in Adams’ case, he also is one of the best players at his position.
Many early draft picks in fantasy football come with a risk, but Adams is about as safe a selection as you can make. First, he’s a top-five wide receiver in the NFL. He plays with an MVP quarterback in a great offense and also gets a ton of targets.
Adams is going to help your team in a big way, and that’s why he’s the number one Packers player for fantasy football in 2019.
