Getting snaps won't be easy for Davante Adams

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - [Full Article]

These practices are probably as important to Packers WR Davante Adams as anyone on the team in that he'll need to gain a trust with Aaron Rodgers. As noted by the position coach, it's not easy for rookie wideouts to break onto the scene. This offense demands a lot from receivers mentally. A background in similar concepts should help Adams assimilate. As his coach at Fresno State pointed out, there are a few things Adams must work on this spring, too.

Fantasy Impact: 

We believe that Jarrett Boykin will hold off the talented yet inexperienced Adams to be the WR3 in 2014. After Randall Cobb went down, Boykin stepped in and caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three scores. In games where he played at least 59% of the snaps, he averaged 4.3-61-.27, which equates to 124 fantasy points over a full season. That’s about what Marques Colston scored as the #27 WR in 2013. Cobb is back, but James Jones is gone, and Boykin should play a lot in the Packers’ patented three-wide attack, which should be more productive with Aaron Rodgers under center.
