GREEN BAY, Wis. – Davante Adams continued his seesaw pattern of fantasy results last Sunday, posting 4 catches for 89 receiving yards against a stout Chicago Bears defense. It is worth noting that Aaron Rodgers only had to drop back and pass 23 times in a game that the Green Bay Packers (-430) controlled from start to finish.
Just going by this season’s trends, Davante Adams is due for a big time rebound game come Sunday. Both times that Adams finished with under 100 receiving yards in a game, he quickly responded in the next game with a stat line of at least 100 yards and 8 catches.
This is key to note for Sunday, considering that sportsbooks have set Davante Adams reception total at 7.5 catches with -130 odds. If the Davante Adams bounce back trends continue, he should cruise past 7.5 catches with ease.
More Reasons For Adams’ To Have A Great Game
Another reason to expect a big game out of Davante Adams is the fact that he is going against the Washington Football Team (+320) secondary. Opposing teams are absolutely peppering the slot against the WFT, allowing an average of 16.8 targets to the position according to Sports Info Solutions. Tyreek Hill was the latest receiver to touch up the Washington secondary, posting a line of 9-76-1 last week.
Adams’ sees almost half of his targets coming out of the slot, and owns a massive part in the Green Bay Packer offense.
Oddsmakers have listed Davante Adams at -115 odds to go OVER 95.5 receiving yards on Sunday. Adams combination of strength of matchup and dominant target share should incline sports bettors to take the OVER here.
The DFS Side
Davante Adams is the highest priced receiver this week on DraftKings, coming in at $8900. Considering that Adams let a good portion of DFS players down last week, it is reasonable to assume that his ownership may decline this week. DFS players will be faced with a tough decision this weekend, when having to choose between Cooper Kupp at $8400 or Davante Adams at $8900.
Considering this is a matchup where opposing teams have attacked the slot heavily, sports bettors can expect Adams to be heavily featured in the game plan and exceed both his prop bet totals and DFS value.
The game is set to begin on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST on FOX.
