Davante Adams – WR

A lot has been made about the lack of weapons at the disposal of Aaron Rodgers. But he does have the NFL’s hottest wide receiver on the outside in Davante Adams.

The wideout has been at the top of his game throughout the season and seems to be putting up significant numbers even when teams key-in on him from a scheme perspective. Rodgers has complete confidence in Adams’ ability to overcome double or even triple coverage and his mere presence opens up space for other lesser-known playmakers to do damage.

Adams is a serious problem.

And Donte Jackson will be tasked with solving it.

The former LSU standout looked more like his old self against the Broncos after missing a considerable period of time with a toe problem that has hampered him all season. This will be the acid test for Jackson against a player who has racked up 91 receptions, 1,144 receiving yards, and 14 touchdowns in just 11 games – collecting 75.2 percent of targets thrown his way.

This might end up being a collective effort rather than just one man tasked with trying to stop Adams. However, if they focus too much on the All-Pro candidate, Rodgers will have no trouble picking them apart by finding others who can make a difference.
