Expect another big season for Davante Adams.

Davante Adams continues to prove why he’s an elite wide receiver and he’ll be key to the Green Bay Packers offense in 2020.

The Packers made small changes to the wide receiver corps this offseason, signing Devin Funchess and moving on from Geronimo Allison. But they didn’t make the moves many expected.

Despite that, they’ve still got Adams, who is one of the best receivers in the NFL.

2019 stats

Adams played in 12 games in the regular season, missing four games due to a toe injury. He finished 2019 with 83 catches for 997 yards and five touchdowns.

2019 review

Adams had one of the best performances of his career against the Philadelphia Eagles but also got injured in the same game. He then missed a month of action and took a while to get back to 100 percent. While the Packers were able to go undefeated without Adams, he once again showed why he’s the best receiver on the team.

Green Bay failed to add a consistent number two receiver in the offseason, but as long as Adams is on the team, Aaron Rodgers has an elite target to throw to. Adams’ release is as arguably the best in the league, his route-running is elite and he’s incredible in the red zone with 40 touchdowns to his name over the past four seasons.

Odds of making roster: 100 percent

Adams isn’t just guaranteed to make the roster but he’s one of the five most important players on this team.

What to expect in 2020?

Even if the Packers become even more run-heavy in 2020, Adams is going to get a big share of targets. Oftentimes last season, Rodgers was locked in on Adams as many of the other receivers weren’t consistently getting open.

The Packers can’t afford to lose Adams. The Pro Bowl receiver has been playing at an elite level and is so consistent. If he’s healthy, he’ll have another All-Pro-level season in Matt LaFleur’s offense.
