2019 Fantasy Outlook
It's good to be Aaron Rodgers' top target. Adams finished second in the NFL with 169 targets and first in red-zone looks with 31. The result: 111 catches (T-5th) and 13 TDs (2nd). Adams wasn't especially efficient - his 12.5 YPC and 8.2 YPT ranked 15th, i.e., slightly below average among the league's 28 100-target wideouts. At 6-1, 215, Adams combines good size with polished route-running and good hands (only five drops). Adams has only average speed - he ran a modest 4.56 40 at the combine in 2014 - but last year he hauled in five passes of 40-plus yards (T-7th). For 2019, Adams will again be Aaron Rodgers' unquestioned top target, but the Packers offense should be more dynamic, and possibly more diverse. Mike McCarthy and his outdated schemes are finally gone, and former Titans and Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur will presumably install a more modern offense. Ordinarily that might mean fewer targets for Adams, both overall and in the red zone, but it's hard to see anyone on the roster (Geronimo Allison, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown) who could push him for those looks.

Adams caught eight of 11 targets for 160 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 28-23 divisional-round win over the Seahawks.
ANALYSIS
Adams averaged an impressive 20.0 yards per catch, as he accounted for nearly two-thirds of Aaron Rodgers' passing yardage. The duo connected for a 20-yard touchdown in the first quarter while adding an electric 40-yard score in the third. Adams also helped put the game away with a beautiful 32-yard over-the-shoulder catch in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. The talented wideout is averaging 118 yards per game with four touchdowns over his last four contests, and he'll look to continue his excellent form in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.

Jordy Nelson's departure leaves no doubt: Adams is Aaron Rodgers' No. 1 WR now. There actually wasn't much doubt last year, either. Adams had 117 targets in 14 games, increasing his per-game number from 2016 when Nelson was the team's top dog. Once again, Adams was a red-zone and TD machine - his 23 looks tied for second with Cooper Kupp and Jarvis Landry, despite the missed games, and his 10 TDs were bested only by DeAndre Hopkins. Unfortunately, Adams' per-play production dipped - his 7.6 YPT was 18th among the league's 27 100-target WR, though in fairness he played half his games with backup Brett Hundley. At 6-1, 215, and with average speed (4.56 40), Adams is physically unremarkable. He's stout, sure-handed, able to make plays in traffic and capable of an occasional big play - seven catches of 40-plus yards over the last two years. Of some concern is the arrival of 6-7 tight end Jimmy Graham, who could cut into Adams' red-zone work significantly. Keep in mind, however, that Nelson led the NFL in targets inside the 20 in 2016, when Adams was tied for second, i.e., the Packers like to throw from in close and generate plenty of red-zone chances, so there should be enough to go around. Adams missed the last two games of 2017 with a concussion, his second of the year, but cleared the protocol in early January and eventually signed a four-year deal with an $18 million signing bonus. His role for 2018 is secure.
Left for dead as an NFL prospect after an abysmal 2015, Adams salvaged his career last season, establishing himself as a reliable outside receiver and red-zone option for QB Aaron Rodgers. At 6-1, 215 and with 4.5 speed, Adams is stout and also faster than average for his size. His efficiency was merely average last year with 13.3 YPC (40th) and 8.2 YPT (19th), but his 23 red-zone looks tied him for second in the league, and he scored on seven of them, a big part of why he tied for third in the league with 12 TDs. Adams also made his share of big plays -- 17 catches for 20-plus yards and four from 40-plus. The Packers didn't add any significant pieces at receiver this offseason -- though TEs Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks replace Jared Cook -- so Adams should again have a prominent role in the Packers offense. There's a chance a healthier Randall Cobb re-claims a bigger share of targets from the slot, but the larger question is what happens should Jordy Nelson get hurt or fall off the aging cliff. In 2015, it was a disaster for Adams and the Packers, but Adams should be more prepared now that he has three seasons under his belt and a better rapport with Rodgers. An ankle sprain hampered Adams during the team's playoff run last year, but he's healthy at press time and expected to be ready before the start of training camp.
In the wake of Jordy Nelson's season-ending injury last summer, Adams entered 2015 with astronomical hype projecting as Aaron Rodgers' second option at wide receiver behind the established Randall Cobb. However, Adams endured injuries to his ankle and knee during the year, and coupled with his underwhelming production, produced a disappointing campaign in the eyes of many. He'll now need a strong offseason showing to re-cement himself as the third option behind Cobb and Jordy Nelson, where he'll face stiff competition from Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis, and 2016 fifth-round pick Trevor Davis. Fortunately, Adams does have his second-round draft pedigree going for him, so he likely isn't competing for a roster spot. With that said, Adams will still be jockeying for position on the depth chart while desperately trying to regain the chemistry with his quarterback that seemingly evaporated over the course of last season.
Being the No. 2 target in Green Bay guarantees relevance, which is Adams' role, in the wake of Jordy Nelson's season-ending injury. As a rookie, Adams had three games in which he eclipsed 75 yards, and while his overall efficiency numbers (11.7 YPC, 6.8 YPT) were poor, especially in an Aaron Rodgers-led offense, the sample (66 targets) was small, with the wideout seeing erratic work in his first NFL season. At 6-1, 215, and running a 4.51 40, Adams has good size and average speed, but he's an explosive athlete with first-rate ball skills, and of course he's in an ideal situation playing within the context of the Green Bay offense.
Adams is a little smaller and a step slower than ideal, which kept him out of the first round in this year's draft, but his leaping ability, sure hands and fierce will to win every ball he can reach could make him a very dangerous red zone target for Aaron Rodgers down the road. The Packers' depth chart is too crowded for Adams to have immediate value, but if injuries push him into a bigger role as a rookie he could surprise.
