Packers Beat: More work coming for WR Davante Adams

ESPN - [Full Article]

Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky answered a question about WR Davante Adams getting more work going forward:

"For starters, Davante Adams has moved well ahead of Jarrett Boykin for the No. 3 receiver spot. Put it to you this way: Teams aren't going to start paying less attention to Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. They would rather try to make a guy like Adams beat them. About the only thing that could reduce the number of targets headed Adams' way is if one of their tight ends somehow became productive. But based on the first half of the season, that seems unlikely. Adams' workload should increase."

Fantasy Impact: 

Demovsky even broke it down nicely in terms of fantasy potential - don't expect teams to try and stop Adams which could be good news for his fantasy production. If you have a free roster spot or looking for an upside guy to stash, that could very well be Adams. He's probably safer in deeper leagues at least right now, but may have flex potential in typical 10-team leagues if things work out.
