2. Davante Adams

What is there to say about Davante Adams that hasn’t already been said? He’s one of the top receivers in the league and doesn’t get near the amount of attention he should. He is definitely getting more attention this season, but I’d still argue it still isn’t enough.

He is consistently being double- and sometimes triple-teamed and he still manages to produce for the Packers. On the season, he has 68 catches for 847 yards and 10 touchdowns, all most on the team by a mile. This is especially impressive knowing that he has missed 2.5 games this year.

I think one of the reasons people don’t really think about Adams as a top receiver is because he has somehow gone over 1,000 yards receiving just once in his career, in 2018. If he stays healthy, there is a good chance he does it again this year.

Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports wrote an article about how Adams says he’s the best receiver in the league and has the numbers to prove it. The article was written on November 6, so it is not the most up-to-date stats, but they still show that Adams is right:

"“Adams is the first player in the Super Bowl era with 50-plus catches, 600-plus receiving yards and 8-plus receiving touchdowns in his first 6 games of the season — showcasing the impact he’s made on the Packers offense and how dominant he’s been around the league. Adams’ 26 receiving touchdowns since the start of the 2018 season are tied for the most in the NFL while he ranks fifth in receiving yards (3,058) during that span despite playing just 33 games.”"

Adams has been very productive the past two seasons, despite missing multiple games. When he is healthy, he is easily one of the top-three receivers in the league. Packer fans are all extremely thankful Davante Adams is a Green Bay Packer.
