Davante Adams’ record since 2016 is better than any other wide receiver in the NFL.
In recent years, Adams has established himself as one of the NFL’s best wide receivers. With elite route-running ability and arguably the best release of any receiver, along with dominance in the red zone, Adams is tough to cover.
Not only is he a star player, but Adams has also been consistent.
Davante Adams: Only WR with 4,000 yards, 40 TDs since 2016
Here’s an incredible stat by NFL on CBS on Twitter. Adams is the only wide receiver in the NFL to hit both 4,000 yards receiving and 40 touchdown catches since the start of 2016.
Let’s do the quick math. That means Adams — who has 4,265 yards and 40 touchdowns in the past four seasons — is averaging over 1,000 yards (1,066 to be exact) and 10 touchdowns per year since 2016. Quite incredible.
In the past four years, Adams has played in 57 games. He’s averaging 74.82 yards and 0.7 touchdowns per game since the start of 2016. Again, phenomenal numbers.
Adams will again be the number one target in Green Bay’s offense this season. The Packers did add Devin Funchess in free agency, but that’s the only significant change they’ve made in the offseason. The other difference from last season will be the return of Equanimeous St. Brown, who missed all of 2019 due to injury. In a way, St. Brown could be like a new signing.
But make no mistake, when Aaron Rodgers needs to find a receiver he trusts on third down with the game on the line, he’s going to be looking Adams’ way more often than not.
And why wouldn’t he? Adams’ record over the past four years is better than any other wide receiver in the NFL.
