Davante Adams, the freshly acquired playmaker for the Las Vegas Raiders, has made the NFL Top 100 yet again, this time at number seven. While this shouldn’t come as a surprise given Adams’ consistent excellence, he is without a doubt the finest wide receiver in the NFL. He is coming off another excellent season with the Green Bay Packers, where he had 1,553 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. To add to his great season, he was named to the Pro Bowl for the fifth time in his career.
Is Davante Adams worthy of a Top 5 designation?
With all due respect to Cooper Kupp, who was ranked slightly higher than him, Adams has unquestionably dominated his position. There is no doubt about it; he commands double, sometimes triple, teams just because he is that good. Adams is the definition of a game changer that defensive coordinators spend a lot of time game planning for. Needless to say, he’s been a source of discomfort for many NFL cornerbacks. In fact, Adams recently spoke up regarding that matter while appearing on The Pivot.

If anything, he can use this slight as motivation for the regular season, proving that rankings don’t matter when you know who the better player is. Adams will have to show his skills to the whole league again, this time as a Raider, rankings be damned.
A great season awaits the Raiders’ superstar
The former Fresno Bulldog has been reunited with his closest friend and former quarterback, Derek Carr. The duo is expected to recreate the magic that existed between them from 2012 to 2013. Their chemistry hasn’t faded, so anticipate a slew of incredible plays that will leave fans speechless. While he had tremendous seasons playing with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, the same thing could not be replicated in Las Vegas with Carr. The wait will be over when he faces division rivals the Los Angeles Chargers on September 11th.
