Davante Adams Was the #4 Fantasy WR

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Davante Adams was the number #4 ranked WR and the #34 ranked player overall. His value would have been even better if he had played as many games as other elite WRs. Based on average fantasy points he is the #3 WR. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 6 games he averaged 17.1 fantasy points which was higher than his start (11.9 FP) and his ending average (13.9 FP). He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. Based on a relatively low standard deviation, Adams can be considered a consistent fantasy player. He averaged 14.6 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 25 fantasy points with a floor of 9 points.
