On the 1st couple drives, the Bengals were getting pressure on Aaron Rodgers while Chidobe Awuzie looked solid in defending Adams. That lasted just a few minutes, as the dynamic duo of Adams and Rodgers completely took the game over and the WR posted almost 19 yards per catch. Adams saw 16 of the QB’s 39 passes in a wild game that required big plays, leading to a 200-yard performance, which was a career high.
After a ‘slow’ start to the yeast when Adams had ‘just’ 16 targets in the first 2 games, he’s averaged 15 over the last 3 weeks, and he’s reclaimed this crown as the highest floor WR in the game with the only player challenging him for ceiling is Tyreek Hill. Even though Aaron Rodgers is throwing about 33 passes per game, Adams’ target share is through the roof. It should continue to be that way going forward.
Adams caught 6 of his team-high 11 targets for 64 yards on Sunday. It was his second straight double-digit target game. He's seen 7 or more in every game.
Going forward, Adams remains an elite option that sees a ton of quality targets from one of the best QBs the NFL has ever seen. There is little reason to doubt him the rest of the way.
Another week, another absolutely massive performance by Adams. The guy appeared to be severely injured late in the game but only missed one play before returning to help lead the last-minute comeback.
Adams had 18 targets in this game -- yes 18 targets, for a 55% target share. He finished the night with 12 catches for 132 yards and 1 TD.
The Steelers are on deck for Adams. Though usually a tough matchup, they have surrendered 5 WR TDs already on the season. Adams, of course, is an easy fantasy start regardless of matchup.
We have him ranked at the overall PPR WR1 against the Steelers this weekend and for the rest of the season.
Adams remains an absolute stud. He saw a team-high 9 targets, catching 8 for 121 yards. He remains a primary focus of QB Aaron Rodgers.
A season ago, Adams had 9 or more targets a staggering 12 times. Going forward, there is little reason to doubt he will get into the double digits often. While the Packers will find opportunities to exploit matchups they can attack, Adams will always be the focal point.
When you see Adams’ stat line of 5-56 on 7 targets, you’re obviously disappointed. However, when you put it into context that Aaron Rodgers only threw for 133 yards, it makes you realize that Adams accounted for 42% of the team’s receiving production. Adams will get immediate redemption as the Packers play the Lions in Week 2 who just surrendered 189 receiving yards to Deebo Samuel in the opener.
