We know that being the top receiving option for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers has yielded great success over the years, but the performance from wide receiver Davante Adams last season is more and more impressive the deeper you look into it.

Not only was Adams among the top fantasy performers in the league last season, with 111 receptions for 1,386 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns, but he also gave his owners consistency that is so often overlooked in fantasy football.

That "worst" game still included six catches (nine targets) and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Patriots. That's 16 points in PPR leagues, making that Adams' floor last season. He ultimately finished as WR4 in PPR scoring, despite missing a game, but when you look at his week-to-week stats, they're pretty eye popping.

This means that if you took Adams' worst performance and projected it out over a full 16-game season, he would have ended 2018 with 96 receptions, 640 yards and 16 touchdowns. His lowest point total also ties for WR17 on a per game average last season.

So barring injury, it looks like Adams' floor for the upcoming fantasy football season puts him in the high-end WR2 range, but obviously his ceiling is the top overall WR in 2019. Adams currently has an ADP of WR2 in early fantasy drafts, behind DeAndre Hopkins, but this stat should make fantasy owners consider making him as the first WR off the board.
