Davante Adams reached new levels of per-game dominance in 2020 as Aaron Rodgers and the entire Packers passing game took over in Year 2 of Matt Lafleur's system despite losing right tackle Bryan Bulaga last offseason. I would make the case no quarterback-receiver duo has a better rapport right now than Rodgers-Adams. In the red zone, this is where they're at their best -- back shoulder passes and quick feet to create separation is a dangerous combination.
We want to keep you up to date with everything surrounding his 2021 profile. Below, we'll break down Adams' outlook, changes in his ADP, where he's going in mock drafts, training camp/preseason updates and more.

Adams has been arguably the best receiver in football over the past three seasons and should be the first receiver selected on Draft Day. Adams is worth a first-round pick in any league where catches count and an early second in non-PPR. Over the past three seasons he's averaged 121 catches, 1,466 yards, and 14 touchdowns per 16 games. In 2020 he was 3.7 PPR Fantasy points per game better than the No. 2 wide receiver, Tyreek Hill. There should be little doubt Adams will be among the league leaders in targets, catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns as long as he stays healthy.
Even at 28, Adams is in the conversation for the No. 1 Dynasty receiver, but that probably won't be the case after 2021. In other words, if you're not a contender, this is the prime time to sell Adams in a Dynasty league. (Heath Cummings)
