Brett Favre Expects Davante Adams' Numbers to Decline Post-Rodgers

by

Count Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre as one of several expecting a statistical regression for Las Vegas Raiders star wideout Davante Adams in the post-Aaron Rodgers phase of his career.

Speaking Sunday, Favre said:

“No disrespect to Davante at all — zero disrespect. I do think that Davante will make Derek Carr better, and in time, they will be a dynamic duo. Now will it be the duo that Aaron and Davante had? Time will tell…That’s not to say he’s not a great player because he is a tremendous player, and we’ll see that with Las Vegas. But it’s just hard to shift gears, especially from a player as prolific as Aaron Rodgers. I’d be shocked if he had the same year he’s had this year. That’s not to say he can’t do it, but I would be shocked.”

While shifting from Rodgers to Carr is a noticeable downgrade, Adams does have the luxury of having played with the latter during their time together at Fresno State University, where they were one of college football’s most productive pairings. Even if Favre is correct and Adams does not post the numbers we saw in Green Bay, he should still be plenty effective in Silver and Black and, among receivers, a top-five pick in 2022 fantasy football leagues.

FanDuel Sportsbook currently has the Raiders at +198 odds to make the playoffs.
