2. Davante Adams
Despite only playing in six games, Davante Adams leads the NFL in receiving touchdowns and is averaging more yards per game than any other pass catcher.
Adams’ breakout season came all the way back in 2016. Since then, he’s regularly put up great numbers. However, this season is shaping up to be his best yet. He’s been simply unstoppable and defenses just don’t know how to cover him. His release, route-running, and catch radius makes Adams one of the toughest covers for cornerbacks.
Aaron Rodgers has had some great wide receivers to throw to in his career from Jordy Nelson to Greg Jennings to Randall Cobb. Adams might be his best ever.
Even after missing two games, Adams is on pace to set a new Packers franchise record in receiving yards in a single season. He’s currently on pace for 1,575 yards and 18.6 touchdowns, which would beat Jordy Nelson’s 1,515-yard, 13-touchdown season in 2014 which is currently the best in Packers history. To make it more impressive, Adams is on pace to beat the record in two games fewer than Nelson played that year.
With 675 yards and eight touchdowns in six games, Adams is on a historic pace this season. That’s bad news for defensive backs set to cover him.
