Why Packers, Chiefs, Colts deserve multiple selections

Despite Kupp's significant achievements this season, Adams has a strong case for the title of NFL's best receiver. His pairing with Aaron Rodgers has been incredibly productive, landing him third in receiving yards with 1,553, and his 11 receiving touchdowns rank fifth among all pass-catchers. The Next Gen numbers bolster his case, too: Adams ranks third in total EPA at 72.2, sixth in catch rate over expected (+7.8%), and ninth in overall catch rate (72.8%). There's no quarterback-receiver pairing in the NFL more lethal than Rodgers and Adams, so it's no surprise to see the Packers sitting atop the NFC with the conference's top seed heading into the postseason.
