|Davante Adams, the 6'1'' rookie from Fresno State, makes up for his lack of experience with superior natural ability. He led the nation in catches and receiving touchdowns as a red-shirt sophomore. While he isn't a burner, he fits the mold of receivers that the Packers have been able to develop over the last several seasons. Watch the opportunities he gets in camp and preseason games. If he is able to impart a measure of confidence with his coaches and quarterback, Adams could push for serious playing time in the middle part of the year, making him a waiver-wire pick to watch.
|Mike McCarthy praises WR Jarrett Boykin|
Boykin holds off rookie for No. 3 receiving role
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 28, 1:15 pm
|In February, coach Mike McCarthy predicted that Boykin, who would be entering his third season, had another performance jump in him.
On Tuesday, McCarthy left no doubt that he would think he was right.
"Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step," McCarthy said. "I just love the way he plays. He's had an excellent camp. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)|
FFToday's Take: Boykin is clearly the No.3 receiver in Green Bay ahead of rookie Davante Adams. Aaron Rodgers' third option in the passing game is a viable one for fantasy owners, making Boykin a very solid WR4 in all formats. His current ADP sits at the bottom end of the 11th round.
|Nelson "superlative" in Packers camp|
Cobb has "looked rather common"
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 7, 3:40 pm
|After closely observing Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb during the first two weeks of training camp, it's become clearer than ever that GM Ted Thompson, coach Mike McCarthy and VP Russ Ball prioritized correctly at wide receiver.
Nelson has established himself as a great player. His day-in, day-out superlative play in practice this summer only reaffirmed his primacy in Green Bay. But based on the small sample size of the opening 10 practices of camp, Cobb has looked rather common based on his 2012 level of play. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)|
FFToday's Take: It has been speculated that rookie second-rounder Davante Adams' future might be in the slot, which could make this something of a make-or-break year for Cobb in Green Bay as he enters the final season of his rookie contract. Nelson's camp performance should come as no surprise; he is one of the most efficient receivers in football and should be poised for another mid-level WR1 season as Aaron Rodgers' most dependable target.
