Prioritizing waiver-wire picks at wide receiver
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg takes a look at the wide receivers most worth adding ahead of this week's games.

The list is headlined by new Seahawks' No. 1 Doug Baldwin (33 percent owned), with Odell Beckham (68 percent) of the Giants, Davante Adams (21 percent) of the Packers, Allen Robinson (34 percent) of the Jaguars and Brandon LaFell (56 percent) of the Patriots rounding out the remainder of the top five.

If you need to drop someone to make room for any pickups this week, he also recommends possibly parting ways with the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson (81 percent) or the Steelers' Markus Wheaton (35 percent).

Packers WR Davante Adams makes lone catch count for six
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams had only one catch but made it count for six in a comfortable Week 7 victory over the Panthers on Sunday.

Adams came down with a 21-yard touchdown reception early in the third quarter. It was his only target of the game in a 38-17 victory. Adams has 17 catches for 188 yards and two scores this season.

The Packers will face the Saints in New Orleans in Week 8.

Don't go crazy for Davante Adams
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For a team's third wide receiver to have significant value in Fantasy, that team's passing attack has to be pretty explosive. Green Bay's typically has been with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is having a banner year with 15 touchdown passes to just one interception.

And yet in three of Rodgers' six games this season, he's thrown for less than 200 yards. As a team, the Packers rank only 20th in passing yards per game. That's not my idea of explosive.

Certainly things could change. Eddie Lacy has failed to give them much of a running game, which could cause them to go more pass-heavy in the weeks ahead. But more than anything, the reason third wide receiver Davante Adams performed so well Week 6 at Miami, catching six passes for 77 yards, was because co-No. 1 Randall Cobb didn't. Rodgers threw for a modest 264 yards. Unless he goes for a consistent 300, you can't expect Adams to make a regular contribution in Fantasy in his current role.

So in standard leagues of 12 teams or fewer, I'm leaving him on waivers. For the list of wide receivers Jamey Eisenberg is adding over him, check out his latest Playing the Waiver Wire.

Packers' Davante Adams racks up 77 yards in Week 6 victory
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was heavily targeted and finished as the team's second-leading receiver in a Week 6 victory over the Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium.

The rookie caught a pair of passes for 23 yards on the opening drive and played a crucial factor in the late stages of the game. Down four points late in the fourth quarter, he caught a short pass on a fake spike from Aaron Rodgers and turned it up the field for a 12-yard gain with six seconds remaining. On the very next play, Green Bay scored the game-winning touchdown.

Adams caught six of eight passes thrown his way for 77 yards, averaging a team-high 12.8 yards per grab in a 27-24 victory. He has surpassed the 50-yard mark just twice this season.

The Packers will host the Panthers in Week 7.
