1. Green Bay Packers

This feels a bit like I’m beating a dead horse at this point but the Green Bay Packers need more help at wide receiver as they head down the home stretch of the 2019 season. Yes, they have an unquestionable No. 1 wide receiver in Davante Adams. As Adams has been sidelined with a toe injury over recent weeks, though, the shortcomings of the wide receiver corps have been obvious.

Whether it’s bigger names like Geronimo Allison or this-is-definitely-the-week-he-breaks-out king Marquez Valdes-Scantling or lesser-known players like Allen Lazard and Jake Kumerow, the simple fact is that none of them have stepped up without Adams in the lineup. Yes, Aaron Rodgers has still made the offense tick under new head coach Matt LaFleur but why make life harder than it has to be?

Adding Josh Gordon to the mix in Green Bay would be a huge win for the Packers offense as they eye a Super Bowl run this year. Should Adams miss more time, either with the toe or a future injury, Gordon gives Rodgers a receiver with viable No. 1 receiver talent that he can rely on in the passing game. With Adams on the field, they could comprise a potent 1-2 punch opposite one another on the outside.

If there’s a team clearly in the mix to make a run in the NFC but that needs a piece to really fortify their roster, the Packers are that club. And Gordon could very well be that missing piece. Maybe it doesn’t work out but it’s more than worth the look in the case that he comes in and recaptures some of the magic he flashed in Cleveland.
