    , I must start this article by addressing Davante
    Adams:Through 16 weeks in ESPN PPR leagues, Adams finished number one in points
    with 305 — out-pacing Tyreek Hill, DeAndre Hopkins, Adam Thielen, and Julio
    Jones who finished second through fifth, respectively. In Yahoo leagues, Adams
    edged out Antonio Brown by three fantasy points, and in leagues, he
    finished second to Brown by one point. Technically, there’s still another week
    in the NFL season, but if you’re playing into Week 17, you have legitimate
    qualms with your fantasy commissioner. Adams was a force all season long, and
    showed up when it truly counted for fantasy players. During the heavy bye weeks
    (weeks 9-11), Adams had 16, 21, and 26 PPR points. It’s almost like Adams had
    himself on several big-money fantasy teams. There was also not a single week in
    which Adams had single-digit fantasy points. If there was any one player that
    you could always count on to get his, it was Adams. Adams is enjoying his best
    season as a pro, even as the Packers miss the playoffs. In 15 games, he has set
    career highs in

    , receptions, receiving yards, touchdowns and
    first downs. There was plenty of reason to double team Adams all season long,
    with Randall Cobb injured and the other rookie wide receivers finding their
    footing, but Adams was still reliable. In a lost season that saw Mike McCarthy
    fired, Aaron Rodgers struggling, and the defense suffer injury after injury, it
    was Adams who was the brightest light in the darkness. As we look towards the
    2019 season, we can look forward to even bigger things from the Fresno State
    product. He has just turned 26 years old (Happy Birthday!) and will still remain
    Rodgers’ favorite target. He’s an excellent route runner, caught 65.7 percent of
    passes this season, and knows exactly how to get open on extended plays. So
    here’s to Davante Adams, the 2018 WR1! Matt LaFleur is stepping into an
    interesting situation in his first gig as a head coach.The new Green Bay Packers
    boss (well, not official as we write this, but soon enough), inherits one of the
    best quarterbacks in the game (when healthy) in Aaron Rodgers, a Pro Bowl
    receiver in Davante Adams and a young, up-and-coming defense.More Packers

    Packers team which has missed the postseason the past two seasons and fan base
    hungry for a return and not thrilled at the prospect of a third straight year
    without a rooting interest in the playoffs (that
    is ,
    beyond rooting against Chicago or Minnesota).To do so, LaFleur will be going
    against Packers history.No first-year Green Bay head coach has led the team to
    the playoffs in his initial year at the helm. As in ever. Not Curly Lambeau. Not
    Vince Lombardi. Not Mike Holmgren. No one.Interestingly, only five had a better
    record in his first season with the Packers than the previous season, and two of
    those just meant getting three and four wins that initial year. However, each of
    the past two Green Bay head coaches did improve the team’s record in his first

    championships won before there was a playoff systemOf course, none of this means
    LaFleur can’t lead the Packers to the playoffs in 2019. A look around at the
    current NFL coaches shows that while it’s not common for a first-year head coach
    to lead his team to the postseason, it isn’t like it’s never happened.Two
    coaches who were in their first year this season led their team to the playoffs.
    The same in 2017. Others have led their team to the playoffs in subsequent
    seasons (probably one reason they are still head coaches in the NFL; we aren’t
    including those fired after the 2018 season).Keep in mind that, of course,
    circumstances can help or hurt a first-year coach. For example, Drew Brees
    joined the Saints in 2006 and Andrew Luck was healthy in 2018 after missing all
    of the previous season, while on the flip side Jon Gruden and the Raiders dealt
    away some key players this year.But — and good news here, Packers fans —
    generally speaking teams improved in the first year under the active head
    coaches. OK, not Bill Belichick, but we think things have still turned out
    pretty well for New England.CURRENT NFL HEAD COACHES, FIRST YEAR WITH
