5th Down Fantasy
Tied for second in red-zone targets (23); 12 TDs tied for third; should remain vital end-zone target for Rodgers, and if Nelson misses time he'll be invaluable; don't expect efficiency to improve much , 13.3 YPC (40th in NFL). Cooks is in town, but Edelman still has great rapport with Brady; risky pick overall with so many receiving options; should remain very solid PPR pick.
Chet Gresham

Adams proved himself last season and should continue to be a good source for touchdowns with Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.Edelman's value took a blow when Brandin Cooks was added. Cooks could beat him out for targets this year, and if Rob Gronkowski stays healthy, he will also take away a big chunk of looks.

It's always nice having Aaron Rodgers throwing you the ball, and Adams proved himself to be a very capable wide receiver last season. In fact, from week 4 through the end of the season, the only wide receivers who outscored Adams were Odell Beckham Jr., Jordy Nelson, Mike Evans, and of course, Antonio Brown. He's due for a bit of a regression I would imagine, but he's still a pretty safe bet with Rodgers throwing him the ball.Edelman is, without a doubt, a talented receiver, and he's in a great offense, but now with the acquisition of Brandin Cooks, Edelman is lower on the totem pole than he has been before. Both Cooks and Rob Gronkowski are going to eat into Edelman's targets. He's never been a huge guy in the red zone, so it looks as though Edelman's upside will be pretty limited this year. Still, being in a New England offense has a lot of potential.

We finally were rewarded with the breakout everyone hoped for with Davante Adams last season, but much of it came through the 12 touchdowns. If he can't reproduce that absurd red zone efficiency, he may not have the yards to keep up with the Golden Tates and Amari Coopers of the world.Edelman has been a points per game warrior in fantasy football, but unfortunately, he isn't on the field enough to warrant grabbing him at his current ADP, especially with all of the weapons the Patriots have.

This is slowly becoming Adam's offense so we can aim high after a big 2016 runEdelman's value jumps in PPR but he doesn't score much and insert Cooks.

After a breakout season in 2016, Adams is now the clear second option in the Packers' passing attack. Auction Value $20 Edelman had a quiet 98 receptions in 2016 to go along with a meager three touchdowns. The catch totals will go down with Cooks in the offense. Auction Value $13
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
From Week 4 on last season, the only wide receivers to outscore Adams were: Odell Beckham Jr., Jordy Nelson, Antonio Brown, and Mike Evans. That is it. Nelson will be playing at age-32 this season. When the Patriots traded for Brandin Cooks, I was legitimately concerned about Edelman's role going forward. That was until they extended him for another two years. You can't expect anywhere near the 9.7 targets per game that he's seen over the last four years, but he's obviously part of their plans. He was never a touchdown scorer, so it's hard to rely on him as anything more than a low-upside WR3.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
After scoring 12 TD's in 2016 he's due for regression and with slightly less than 1000 yards I don't see enough of an opportunity to increase the yardage to a drastic degree. He's still a relatively safe bet with Rodgers at QB.He's a better NFL receiver than fantasy, with so many options on this team the fantasy points will be spread around. With Gillislee, Burkhead, and the other backs crushing it on the goaline Edelman isn't getting the targets and TD's he was back in 2015.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Adams had 997 yards and 12 touchdowns this year and he should continue to be a WR2 in fantasy, due to his high touchdown numbers playing with QB Aaron Rodgers.
