To say we did not see this one coming would be an understatement. That’s right. The guy considered the worst receiver in the entire NFL by many, Davante Adams, has won NFC offensive player of the week honors for his performance against the Chicago Bears.
Adams had 13 catches for 132 yards and two scores last Thursday.
That catch total was the second-highest single game total in Green Bay Packers’ history. Dropvante trails only the great Don Hutson and his 14 catches during a game in 1942 in that category.
Those totals also represented a huge jump in production for Dropvante. His previous season high in catches was five and over his career he’s averaged just three catches per game. His previous season high in yardage was 85 and his career average is just 36.5 yards per game.
The question now is what to expect from Dropvante moving forward? Will this be the norm or will the historical averages win out?
We would bet on the latter.
If you recall last year, you’ll remember when tight end Richard Rodgers turned in that huge game at Detroit. Many assumed that was his coming-out party, but Rodgers just went right back to being a completely mediocre player immediately thereafter and has remained so since.
