Davante Adams Dominates Again, Says He’s NFL’s Best Receiver

The Green Bay Packers plastered the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, and Davante Adams will tell you he’s a major reason why.

The numbers seem to support that sentiment, as Adams finished with 10 catches for 173 yards and a touchdown.

Has Adams become the NFL’s best receiver?

Well, let’s go straight to the source.

“I think that’s fair to say,” Adams told reporters. “I think that’s not being conceited. That’s just being confident. I think obviously what I’ve done and what I’m going to continue to do is going to prove that, to anybody who isn’t on board with that.

“At the end of the day, I’ll tell you, yes, absolutely, I think I’m the best wide receiver in the game, but there are a lot of things that go into me being able to make that statement.”

Adams is indeed making his case, leading the NFL at 112.5 yards per game, as the Packers improved to 6-2 and sit atop the NFC North.

  1. It’s hard to disagree with him. I think there are bigger and faster receivers out there, but this guy is a total package. I don’t think there’s anyone better inside the 10 yard line, and hasn’t been since Chris Carter. He reminds me of Carter back in the day, when inside the 10 yard line there was literally nothing you could do to stop him other than commit pass interference. That didn’t work either sometimes. If you throw it to Adams in the end zone he is going to come down with it every time. He’s legit.
