Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 PPR Draft Rankings

Davante Adams Note

If you're planning on taking a wide receiver in the first round, you'd better make sure he's going to perform without question. Adams is that player, as he's performed as a WR1 in 22 of his last 41 games (53.7 percent), which is historically good, and it's a three-year sample size. During that time, he's scored fewer than 11.1 PPR points just four times, and once was due to leaving with an injury. As long as Aaron Rodgers is with the Packers, Adams will be a can't-miss WR1.

Randall Cobb Note

Now that Cobb is back in Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers, he's back on the fantasy radar. Knowing Rodgers specifically requested for the Packers to get Cobb back, it tells you he's getting opportunity right out of the gate, though it's worth noting he's never played in Matt LaFleur's offense. We shouldn't go overboard, though. The last three seasons Cobb was in Green Bay, he averaged 6.4 targets, 4.4 receptions, 44.5 yards, and 0.27 touchdowns per game, which extrapolate to 70 receptions, 712 yards, and four touchdowns over a full 16-game season. My guess would be that Cobb is a solid bye-week filler who'll offer a solid floor.

Allen Lazard Note

When the Packers drafted Amari Rodgers, who has a lot of Randall Cobb to his game, Lazard's projection became unclear. He was the Packers primary slot receiver last year, playing 53 percent of his snaps in the slot. So, it's either they move Marquez Valdes-Scantling to the bench and put Lazard in his place, or all three of them rotate on the field, which is certainly not ideal for fantasy purposes. Lazard had his shot at a breakout, but unfortunately, it didn't happen.

Amari Rodgers Note

The trade for Randall Cobb all but ruined the potential value of Rodgers, who was facing an uphill battle as-is. I say that because Aaron Rodgers isn't someone who develops chemistry with his wide receivers immediately, and not just that, but the two haven't played together at all with Aaron missing all offseason programs. Amari has actually been raised around Cobb because his dad was Cobb's receivers coach at the University of Kentucky, so there should be good tutelage during Amari's rookie season, but it's tough to see him getting meaningful touches in the offense right away, and even if he does get on the field, he has to earn Aaron's trust. If you go back through Aaron's time with the Packers, you'll see that practically every receiver took time to turn into a fantasy option, including Davante Adams.
