2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
In 2012 James Jones scored 14 touchdowns as the No.3 receiver for the Packers. If that doesn’t make you sit up and take notice of 2015’s No.3 receiver Davante Adams, you might need a foam cheesehead lobotomy. Adams, Green Bay’s second-round pick in 2014, nearly saw his pre-season fantasy stock explode before the bubble burst and Randall Cobb was re-signed. Even thought he might be a few slots lower on the food chain, Adams offers the Packers’ offense incredible flexibility, and offers fantasy owners a great value target.

Adams has the talent, and seemingly the work ethic to become a serious factor in the Green Bay offense in 2015. Offseason reports, from his own quarterback no less, have been glowing. The arrow is clearly pointing up after his 38-446-3 line his rookie year. Adams was dominate at Fresno State, and he makes great use of his 6’1’’ 210 pound frame to box out defenders, and catch the ball at its high point. As his route running and timing improved, so did his involvement in the offense, as Adams had two 11-target, 110+ yard games during the second half of the year. That second game coincidentally came in the playoff win vs the Cowboys, and while he was a non-factor in the NFC title game vs Seattle, Adams clearly has the support of his coach and quarterback. Make Adams a late draft value selection.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rodgers calls for young WRs to 'make the jump'
Third wideout an important role within the offense
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 26, 6:46 pm

Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers wants to see more. More plays, more crispness and more consistency from the young receivers on the roster who are moving up in the pecking order following Jordy Nelson’s season-ending injury. “The third receiver is going to get some opportunities,” Rodgers said. “We have a talented two-headed run game, a great offensive line. We’re going to have great balance this year." (Packers.com)

FFToday's Take: The Packers seem to be fine with allowing the talent currently in camp to fill the void created by Jordy Nelson's injury. Aaron Rodgers can make an unknown receiver a weekly fixture in fantasy lineups so it will be worth monitoring the battle for the last two receiver openings over the next two weeks. With Davante Adams moving from third to second on the depth chart, Ty Montgomery is the front runner to secure the third spot.


Injury ACL tear confirmed for Jordy Nelson
Out for season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 24, 5:30 pm

Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers star WR Jordy Nelson will miss the entire 2015 season with a knee injury, the team announced Monday. The Packers said in a statement that Nelson suffered "a significant right knee injury" in Sunday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Nelson, who caught a career-high 98 passes in 2014 while making the Pro Bowl for the first time, fell to the ground when he tried to cut after making an 8-yard reception on Green Bay's opening drive. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This was the expected result after Nelson suffered the injury Sunday afternoon. Although it is unrealistic to think the Packers will simply conduct business as usual on offense without Nelson, they are more equipped to handle this kind of setback at receiver than most teams. For fantasy purposes, Randall Cobb likely moves into the elite-receiver territory, Davante Adams becomes a high-end WR2 and Jeff Janis or rookie Ty Montgomery offers high upside in the later rounds.


HC: "Expect big things" from Davante Adams
Second-year WR continues to turn heads for Packers
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 20, 6:55 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers HC Mike McCarthy on Davante Adams: "I think he's had a heck of a camp. Looking for big things from him." (Rob Demovsky on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Adams has generated headlines all offseason for the improvement he has made from his rookie year. The 6-1, 215-pound Fresno State product has Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb blocking him from a starting gig, but owners shouldn't forget third receiver James Jones led the league in touchdown catches in 2012 in this offense. Adams should be drafted as a low-end WR3, but if Nelson or Cobb was to get hurt, he could easily ascent to low-end WR1 status.


Rodgers gushing over Adams' approach
Second-year WR had "humongous upside"
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jun 11, 5:20 pm

Green Bay Packers
A little over a year after he’d challenged Davante Adams - although not by name - to step up his preparation, Aaron Rodgers couldn’t stop talking Wednesday about the approach Adams is taking to his job now. “In my mind, he has humongous upside - and he’s starting to reach that upside,” Rodgers said after the team’s open-to-the-public OTA practice. “I think the opportunities are going to come for him. He’s got two great guys to play with. His attention to detail is very impressive and his approach." (ESPN Wisconsin)

FFToday's Take: Let's not forget that two seasons ago, Rodgers helped then-third receiver James Jones catch an NFL-high 14 touchdown passes. Even though some of that was due to the fact Jordy Nelson missed four games that season, the point to be made is that Rodgers can support three fantasy receivers. Although his production figures to be inconsistent again in 2015 behind Nelson and Cobb, the second-year wideout should expect a fairly sizable increase from his 38-446-3 rookie line.
