While the title of each NFL season's top wide receiver is often measured by yardage, most WRs seem to favor celebrating touchdowns in the end zone over the first metric.

Green Bay Packers' WR Davante Adams (+1000) is the betting favorite to lead the league in receiving TDs in 2019 season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, while Kansas City Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce (+1200) is a close second.

The top receiving threat for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay has proven to finish with high TD totals in recent seasons. Former Packers' WR Jordy Nelson finished with 13 or more TDs in three separate seasons, and now Adams has taken over his role.

Adams has posted double-digit TD totals in each of the past three seasons, including 13 scores last season, which was tied for second-highest mark in the NFL. With new, offensive-minded head coach Matt LaFleur in the Frozen Tundra looking to heat up this Packers' scoring attack, Adams could be in better position to put up a new career-high TD total.

Kelce was a go-to target for reigning NFL MVP and Chiefs' QB Patrick Mahomes last season, allowing the offense to create more consistent mismatches. The chemistry between these two should be even better in their second full season together. And if Tyreek Hill does end up missing time, that would likely create a larger target share for Kelce, who finished with 10 TDs last season.

Often regarded as the league's top fantasy receiver heading into the 2019-20 season, Houston Texans' WR DeAndre Hopkins (+1300) has the third-best odds to lead the league in TDs, while Antonio Brown, last season's leader in this category, is just behind Hopkins at +1600.
