Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Adams nearly duplicated 2016's breakout in two fewer games, all the more impressive considering he secured half of his 10 TDs from Brett Hundley. Sporting a career 59.5 catch % with no 1,000-yard season, he's not as bankable as the other top-10 wideouts. Yet being Aaron Rodgers's top target counts for something, more specifically another 10-12 end-zone visits.Volume takes precedent over efficiency in fantasy. Just look at Thielen, who enjoyed a breakout campaign (91 catches for 1,276 yards) by receiving 50 more targets than 2016. He averaged an identical 14.0 yards per reception and saw his catch % drop from 75 to 64.1, but a starting role propelled him to stardom. A slow finish (20 catches, 217 yards over final five games including the playoffs) causes some concern, and investors are paying for a repeat of last year's WR12 finish.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Adams only saw 117 targets last season and was still a top 10 wideout. Subtract Jordy Nelson while adding Aaron Rodgers and there is a case to be made that he could catch 90 balls with 1,200 yards and 15 touchdowns this season. This is especially possible if Cobb's injury lingers into the season.With Pat Shurmur out of Minnesota, Thielen could see a major drop in targets. Granted, the quarterback situation has improved, but Dalvin Cook is back and should cut into those targets as well. At Thielen's current ADP, you may want to cool off of him.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Undisputed No. 1 receiver in an Aaron Rodgers offense. Adams should post his first 1,000-yard season and exceed double-digit Tds once again. Prime regression candidate with only 10 TDs in four seasons. Won't see the same number of targets with Kirk Cousins under center.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
The clear WR1 in an Aaron Rodgers offense. 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
A true No. 1 talent? Not really. Adams is a bit slow, his hands can fail him at times and he's not a route technician. But he's big, strong and the apple of his QB's eye - and that QB happens to be one of the most talented of all time. Expect 10+ TDs again, and hope he reaches 80 catches and 1,000 yards for the first time - his set-up certainly makes it possibleMay not have teammate Diggs' upside, but he's yet to miss a game in his four seasons and he's serviceable or better (in some cases, much better) in most every aspect of being a receiver
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After many wrote him off after his first two seasons, Adams has top-three wide receiver in his range of possibilities in 2018. I mean, the guy finished as a top-12 wide receiver with Brett Hundley starting the majority of the season. He'll now be the No. 1 wide receiver for Aaron Rodgers, which makes him as safe as they come at the position. He's scored 17 touchdowns in his last 22 games with Rodgers under center. The chemistry they've built cannot be understated, while Rodgers doesn't have much familiarity on the rest of the roster. Adams will see No. 1 cornerbacks seemingly every week now, but he'll still return WR1 value. Most don't realize how much of an effect that Pat Shurmur had on Thielen's career, as he catapulted him into a household fantasy name. He was 26 years old when he broke out, something that doesn't happen all that often. The move to John DiFilippo will change some things, as will the move to Kirk Cousins, who has taken more chances down the field than game-manager Case Keenum did. That would play more into Stefon Diggs' skill-set rather than Thielen's. I do expect him to be a reliable fantasy producer, but he's not going to finish with 143 targets again. While doing research for Boom, Bust, and Everything in Between, Thielen finished as a WR3 or better just 56.3 percent of the time despite all those targets. Even if he scores more touchdowns, his lost targets are going to hurt.

QB List
A surprise addition to the #1b tier in my books, Davante Adams enters 2018 with sky-high expectations coming off an unquestionably strong 2017. With the departure of Jordy Nelson (not that he was showing up all that much last season) solidifying Adams' role as the #1 receiver for the pack, he's set to receive the lion's share of targets as he did at the end of last season. Elite athleticism, with markedly improved hands and route-running ability, have allowed Adams to translate his increased target share to high-end production. With the only challengers for targets being an aging Randall Cobb, and young guns J'Mon Moore and Geronimo Allison, look for Adams to post elite numbers throughout the 2018 season."White Lightning" breaks into the top 10 this year as he managed to outpace Stefon Diggs in what was one of the best wide receiver duos in fantasy last year. Thielen's target share, great hands, and crisp routes made him the go-to receiver last year in a Minnesota offense that managed to get along just fine even without its star running back Dalvin Cook. Add in that extra Cook (certainly not too many here), the same stud defense, and Kirk Cousins under center, and you have the recipe for another stellar fantasy season from the breakout receiver.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He got paid and he's now very much A-Rod's #1 guy. He was a stud before that so you gotta think he can be even better in 2018Diggs could cut into his role a bit and he has to build chemistry with Cousins but he's clearly a stud
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
With Nelson out of town Adams is option 1 by himselfShould still put up WR2 numbers in a more agressive offense
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Adams emerged as the star of this offense, averaging 10.6 fantasy points per game. He is the Packers receiver to own in 2018 and he should flirt with WR1 status.Thielen averaged 9.6 fantasy points per game and was one of the most reliable possession receivers in the NFL. He could have even bigger numbers playing with QB Kirk Cousins.
