Aaron Rodgers' trust in Packers WR Davante Adams is growing

ESPN - [Full Article]

Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky: As Aaron Rodgers' trust in Davante Adams increases, so will the rookie receiver's production. Adams caught his first career touchdown pass last week against the Vikings, and Rodgers noted this week that the more he has watched film, "the more you're seeing No. 17 [Adams] being open." According to Rodgers and the Packers' offensive coaches, Adams has refined and improved his route running and has been winning more one-on-one battles against cornerbacks.

Fantasy Impact: 

Adams only has 10 targets over the past three weeks, but he caught his first career touchdown in Week 5 (and nearly had one against the Jets in Week 2 and another against the Bears in Week 4), so Rodgers is not afraid to throw to him in the redzone. A breakout game is likely coming if he's going to continue to play starter-type snaps, which has been the case with Jarrett Boykin sidelined.
