Adams is considered among the most reliable and effective receivers in Fantasy Football, so it shouldn't shock anyone when he's taken in Round 1. Shoot, the guy missed four games and still nearly finished with 1,000 yards. Technically, efficiency metrics like yards per target and catch rate were down, but only slightly while Adams injured and then returned from turf toe. There's zero doubt of his role in the Packers offense and his role in the red zone as Aaron Rodgers' trusted top target is cinched. With Adams averaging 9.4 targets per game over his past four seasons, there's a lot to love with him as a top three Fantasy receiver. PPR managers should be OK with taking Adams as soon as seventh overall while those in non-PPR formats can vie for his services closer to 10th overall.
Adams secured nine of 10 targets for 138 yards during the Packers' 37-20 loss to the 49ers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. A significant chunk of Adams' production came on a 65-yard grab in the fourth quarter, a play that saw him impressively beat Richard Sherman on a go route. Otherwise, Adams mostly generated his game-high reception total on short completions, averaging just 9.1 yards on his other eight catches. Adams finished with four 100-yard efforts over his last five games, including the postseason, a stretch during which he also recorded four receiving touchdowns. Adams is under contract for two more seasons at base salaries of $12 million per year, and he'll look to get back over the 1,000-yard threshold in 2020 after falling three yards short of the mark (over 12 games) this past regular season.
Adams caught eight of 11 targets for 160 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 28-23 divisional-round win over the Seahawks. Adams averaged an impressive 20.0 yards per catch, as he accounted for nearly two-thirds of Aaron Rodgers' passing yardage. The duo connected for a 20-yard touchdown in the first quarter while adding an electric 40-yard score in the third. Adams also helped put the game away with a beautiful 32-yard over-the-shoulder catch in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. The talented wideout is averaging 118 yards per game with four touchdowns over his last four contests, and he'll look to continue his excellent form in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.
Adams hauled in seven of his 13 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 17 win over Detroit. Adams once again served as Aaron Rodgers' primary receiver and benefited by racking up at least 13 targets for the third straight game. Thanks to that tremendous volume, Adams fell just three yards short of his second consecutive 1,000 yard season -- an impressive feat given that he was active for only 12 games. He and the Packers will be in action next in the divisional round of the playoffs, and he should again be at the forefront of the offensive gameplan. Looking to the future, Adams is under contract for two more seasons, though his deal provides an out for the team that would result in $7.2 million of dead cap. However, given his status as an elite receiver in the league and his proven rapport with Aaron Rodgers, it's almost certain he'll be back in Green Bay for the 2020 campaign.
Adams brought in 13 of 16 targets for 116 yards in the Packers' 23-10 win over the Vikings on Monday night. He also lost a fumble. Adams was in vintage form during the critical victory, posting a season high in catches and his second straight 100-yard effort. It was also Adams' seventh double-digit target game in the last eight. There's little doubt that Adams will see plenty of attention from Aaron Rodgers in Week 17 against a vulnerable Lions secondary, a game which Green Bay will need to win to clinch a first-round bye in the postseason.
Adams caught seven of 13 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 21-13 win over the Bears. Adams received a whopping 39 percent of the team's targets on the day, topping the 100-yard mark for the fourth time this season. He also scored a 29-yard touchdown to get his team on the board in the first quarter, giving him four TDs in his last four games. Adams is thriving after a rough first half of the season and will look to take advantage of a vulnerable Vikings secondary next Monday.
