1. Davante Adams
Stat line: 7 catches, 115 yards, 1 TD
Another week and another spectacular performance by Davante Adams.
It didn’t take long for Adams to assert his dominance. Three plays into the game was all he needed to show why he is in the talk of the best wide receiver in the game.
After an Equanimeous St. Brown first-down catch, Aaron Rodgers looked for Adams on a back-shoulder throw from their own 43-yard line. Rodgers’ throw was on the money in a place only Adams would catch it and then Adams took it from there.
Adams made a fantastic leaping grab then weaved down the field for a 57-yard touchdown.
That score made it eight games in a row with a touchdown for Davante, breaking the tie he held with Don Hutson for most consecutive games with a touchdown catch in franchise history.
That touchdown was Adams’ 14th on the year and tied for the league lead with the Kansas City Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill. What makes this even more amazing is Adams missed two complete games as well as half of another with a hamstring injury.
If not for that injury, I have no doubt Adams would be head and shoulders above all other receivers in all categories. He’s been that good this year. Adams now has a new career-high with 14 touchdowns. With three games to go, who knows how many more he will get.
It’s a bit of a long shot for Adams to set new career-highs in every category, but with the way he’s playing it’s still very obtainable. I wouldn’t put anything past him.
