|1||Davante Adams, GB||13||28.8||1.06||25.7||
Mike's Thoughts: If we had more certainty on Aaron Rodgers playing this season for the Packers, then Davante Adams moves into the top spot. At this time (7/23), I think Rodgers will play so I'm not too down on Adams. Update (7/27): Rodgers expected to play, Adams up to #1. Drafted Adams 2.05 (15) in a 1QB 10-team best ball on 7/20. Drafted Adams 2.01 (13) in 12-team Superflex best ball (FFPC format) in early August.
|2||Stefon Diggs, BUF||7||27.8||2.01||20.5||
Mike's Thoughts: The Bills seemed to give up a lot to acquire Diggs from the Vikings but it couldn't have worked out better coinciding with the breakout year for Josh Allen. I don't expect much if any decline from Allen in 2021, making Diggs a reliable top-tier WR. I'm not against some analysts rankings Diggs first overall. Drafted Diggs 2.05 (17) in RazzBowl on 7/26.
|3||Tyreek Hill, KC||12||27.6||1.10||20.3||
Mike's Thoughts: It is a little more risky counting on a smaller speed receiver over a bigger, high-catch receiver, but the Mahomes-to-Hill hookup is amazing.

Adams hauled in 115 catches for 1,374 yards and 18 touchdowns over 14 games in 2020. The Packers star wideout is seeking around $20M plus annually.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams has broken off contract extension talks with the team after months of negotiating. Adams is set to be a free agent at the end of the season and the two sides are now in a 'bad place', according to sources that have been speaking to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is the last thing Packers fans need to hear after a roller-coaster offseason embroiled with rumors that quarterback Aaron Rodgers no longer wants to play for the franchise. Adams is at the top of many wide receiver fantasy football depth charts but this development regarding his unhappiness shouldn't knock him off that spot just yet.Jul 23 · Source via Packers Davante Adams
