It may seem sacrilegious, but here it goes: Davante Adams is the Packers’ MVP in 2020.
The Packers wide receiver caught two more touchdown passes in a 30 to 16 win over the Eagles on Sunday.
That brings his season total to an NFL-best 13. Only Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill has as many.
On top of that, Davante has now moved into the top five in receiving yards this season with 1,029.
And he’s third in the league with 84 catches, just 6 behind L.A.’s Keenan Allen for the NFL lead.
That’s all absolutely ridiculous, considering that he missed two games with a hamstring injury earlier this season.
It’s makes you wonder what his stats might look like if he had played all 12 games.
I’m was a communications major in college, but let’s do some math.
Tae is averaging 8.4 catches, 102.9 yards, and 1.3 touchdowns per game.
If you add 17 catches, 206 yards, and 3 more touchdowns, Davante is running away with the league-lead in every meaningful category.
It’s amazing to me, because I remember the days when Adams had a case of the drops.
There was even a moment entering his 3rd year when rumors swirled that he might be cut if he didn’t have a great training camp.
The rest is history.
Aaron Rodgers is having an MVP caliber season. There’s no doubt about that.
But in the middle of this historic year for the quarterback, let’s not forget about the wide receiver that’s making it all possible.
He’s better than Greg Jennings. He’s better than Donald Driver. He’s better than Jordy Nelson.
Davante Adams is the best wide receiver Aaron Rodgers has ever thrown to.
And by the time it’s all said and done, he may be the best in Packers’ history.
