Adam Thielen, Tyreek Hill, and DeAndre Hopkins are getting all the love from pundits across the fantasy landscape. However, much to the knowledge of his fantasy owners, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams is having just as good a season.


With 52 catches on 78 targets for 690 yards and six touchdowns through seven games this season, Adams finds himself comfortably in the top 10 of the league's three major receiving categories. 

Do the math and that adds up to 131 FanDuel fantasy points, making Adams the fourth-highest scoring receiver after Thielen, Hill, and Hopkins. Considering he's faced numerous top-rated cornerbacks (Xavier Rhodes, Josh Norman, Tre'Davious White, among others), that just makes his numbers that much more impressive.


Adams has proven to be matchup proof in PPR formats this year, having scored at least 16 fantasy points in each game he's played. With a favorable schedule coming up, Adams is the must-start receiver that could be the difference between a championship and an early playoff exit.
