GB WR Davante Adams - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Minnesota Vikings
"How many reasons are there to love Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams in Week 17? Let me count the ways." – Sonnet 43, William Shakespeare probably.

I don't need to tell you that Adams is a fantasy star in the making this week; he has been one at basically every turn in 2021. Of the 14 games he has played, only three have seen Adams fall short of double-digit half-PPR fantasy points. He has topped 20 fantasy points almost two times as often as he has fallen short of 10. Since Green Bay's bye, Adams has averaged 93 receiving yards and 1.7 touchdowns on 8.7 catches (11 targets). In short: he is good, so play him.

If you want more details, our models project Adams as an elite fantasy football WR1 for the fantasy championships. The opposing Minnesota Vikings allow the second-most schedule-adjusted fantasy points (aFPA) to wide receivers, so there is little-to-no limit to Adams' fantasy upside.

GB WR Davante Adams - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Baltimore Ravens
Wide receiver Davante Adams is having yet another excellent year as the focal point for the Green Bay Packers passing attack, averaging over 17 half-PPR fantasy points per game. He has the second-highest team target share among all wide receivers as well as a top-10 mark in team air yards share.

In Week 15, the dominance should continue. With Adams coming off of his fourth 25-plus fantasy point performance (and second in the last three weeks), he and the Packers will be primed to attack the pass funnel Baltimore Ravens defense. Baltimore allows the ninth-most schedule-adjusted fantasy points (aFPA) to opposing wide receivers, and with Adams' elite target load, it's no wonder that he is a high-end fantasy WR1 this week, as in almost all weeks.

GB WR Davante Adams - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Chicago Bears

In spite of a bundle of nagging maintenance injuries plaguing him in the second half of the NFL season, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams has still performed well. Showing up on the injury report for each of the Packers' last two games with shoulder and ankle concerns, Adams still ended up posting a combined 15 receptions for 219 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

In Week 14, he'll square off with a Chicago Bears secondary allowing a middle-of-the-road 16th-most schedule-adjusted fantasy points (aFPA) to wide receivers. Unless we hear that his hamstring is something more serious, neither the injury status nor matchup is enough to move Adams out of the elite fantasy WR1 tier for this game.

GB WR Davante Adams - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Los Angeles Rams
I don't need to tell you to start Davante Adams every week. You know to do that. You have guessed – rightly so – that our models project Adams as a high-end fantasy WR1 this week, just as with most weeks when everything is right in Titletown. Sure, it helps to know that his opponents, the Los Angeles Rams, rank 10th-highest by schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to wide receivers, but you'd be starting him even if they were 10th-lowest. Adams is a matchup-proof game breaker and you love him for that reason.

Instead of railing on about that, here are some fun Davante Adams facts: Adams has put together three games with 25 or more half-PPR fantasy points this season already, but does have three with fewer than 10 half-PPR points. Davante Adams has three straight games against the division rival Minnesota Vikings where he scored at least two touchdowns. He lettered in basketball all four years of high school; that's not a football fact, but it is fun.

So, you know, start Adams in Week 12 if you like winning.

GB WR Davante Adams - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Minnesota Vikings

With one less star demanding touches in the Green Bay Packers' starting lineup for Week 11, we should expect to see even more of the offense siloed in the dependable hands and electric legs of Davante Adams. Adams, who has scored more PPR fantasy points per game in 2021 than even his quarterback is in line to see massive volume while the depth-poor Packers take on the Minnesota Vikings this week.

Minnesota currently ranks seventh-highest in terms of schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to opposing wide receivers. That matchup, combined with supernaturally elite target volume, makes Adams the easy overall WR1 for fantasy purposes this week.

GB WR Davante Adams - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks' defense ranks 10th-lowest by schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to wide receivers, which makes things slightly less fun for Green Bay Packers wideout Davante Adams than they should be in Week 10. Still, Adams is averaging 10.9 targets per game, so even a dampened efficiency can't take away his rock-solid floor at the position.

Our models still project Adams as a high-end WR1 for fantasy purposes this week, though his outlook will lose a little more juice if the Packers have to start their backup quarterback again.

GB WR Davante Adams - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Kansas City

Davante Adams' nickname should be "The Mailman" because, as a pass-catcher, he delivers no matter the circumstance. Even in his worst two games in 2021, Adams averaged 4.5 catches for 72.5 receiving yards – 9.6 half-PPR points, which is a more than startable fantasy FLEX option. He'll definitely have to "go postal" in this contest, however, if the Packers want to pull off an upset win without quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Kansas City ranks 13th-easiest by schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to wide receivers, so Adams should have a fairly manageable time. Our models project Adams to remain ever-dependable, as a solidly mid-range WR1 in Week 9.
