Summary

Davante Adams comes into the 2018 season atop the wide receiver depth chart for the Packers, replacing Aaron Rodgers longtime go-to guy, Jordy Nelson. Nelson did most of his damage in the deep passing game, with a career average of 14.3 yards per catch. Adams is much more of a possession receiver, averaging 11.6 yards per catch through his first four seasons. With Nelson gone, Adams will inherit the target share of the Packers #1 wide receiver, which averaged roughly 145 targets per season from 2014-2016. Adams suffered from bouts of inconsistency with respect to drops his first two years in the league, but has since tightened up that part of his game and increased his catch percentage from 53.2% in 2015 to 62% 2016 and 63.2% 2017. While he has yet to have a 1,000 yard season (997 yards in 2016), Adams should eclipse that mark this season on an increase in opportunity alone. He will also see an uptick in his receptions after catching 74 passes last season. Adams was the only wide receiver in the league to have double digit touchdowns in 2016 (12) and 2017 (10). The presence of Jimmy Graham should not stand in the way of Adams making it three straight seasons with 10+ touchdowns, as he was able to catch 12 touchdowns in 2016 alongside of Jordy Nelson's 14 touchdowns. Adams will be one of better values come draft time, as he is not currently seen as a top 10 receiver but has a very stable floor given his touchdown prowess and high catch percentage. While he may not have the ceiling to eclipse guys like Antonio Brown or DeAndre Hopkins, the increase in target volume gives him the opportunity to be a top five wide receiver come seasons end.
