Davante Adams: I’m The Best Receiver In Football

There are so many great receivers in the NFL but not many are putting up numbers like Davante Adams is right now.

Over the last three weeks, Adams has 30 receptions for 422 yards and 6 touchdowns. He has 53 catches for 680 yards and eight touchdowns in just six games this season. All other Packers’ receivers have 41 catches for 678 yards and five touchdowns in eight games. 

Adams was asked after Thursday night’s game if it’s safe to call him the best wide receiver in the game:

“Yes, I think that’s fair to say. That’s not being conceded. That’s just being confident,” Adams said. “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. But I truly believe that just based on the work that I put in and the connection I have with my quarterback. It’s not just about me running the route. If the line isn’t protecting or if the quarterback doesn’t look your way or the other receivers don’t do their part to pull defenders away, then none of what I do can happen. So, at the end of the day, yes, I’m the best in the game, but there’s a lot of things that go into me making that statement.”

Adams finished Thursday night’s game with 10 catches for 173 yards and a TD. The 173 receiving yards was more than all 49ers receivers had combined (160).

His eight touchdown receptions this season is the most in the NFL and that’s despite missing two games because of a hamstring injury.

DeAndre Hopkins, Julio Jones and a few other receivers might have something to say about Adams declaring himself the best, but there’s no arguing that Adams is right there lurking.
