  • Davante Adams Looking To Get Season On Track

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will try and get his season cooking in Week 7 against the Texans. Adams was fantastic in Week 1 with 14 receptions for 156 yards and two scores but a hamstring injury has hampered him since. Adams returned to the lineup last week, posting 61 yards and now will face a Texans Defense that is allowing the 15th fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers. The Texans have allowed nine touchdowns to receivers and opponents have completed 73% of their passes to wideouts. Adams will be a low-tier WR1 in Week 7.

  • Davante Adams Posts 61 Yards In Return

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams caught six passes for 61 yards in the Packers 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers in Week 6. Adams returned to the lineup after missing the last few games with a hamstring injury and led the team with 10 targets. The Packers offense fell apart in the second quarter and never recovered. It was positive, however, to see Adams back on the field. He will have a chance to post a better fantasy line next week against the Vikings.

  • Davante Adams Will Return Against Buccaneers

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) was taken off the final injury report and will play in Week 6 against the Buccaneers. The Packers played it safe with their top wideout, holding him out since Week 2 due to a hamstring strain. Green Bay and quarterback Aaron Rodgers barely missed a beat without him, so they'll be even more dangerous against Tampa and Tom Brady on Sunday. Adams had 20 targets in just over a game of action before his injury, as he's clearly Rodgers' favorite target in the passing game. The return of Adams also means that fantasy managers shouldn't expect tight end Robert Tonyan to go crazy like he did before the Week 5 bye. Adams is a must-start WR1.

  • Davante Adams On Track To Play Sunday

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring), who has missed the last two games, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and is on track to play in Week 6 against the Buccaneers. Adams had the Week 5 bye to heal up, so his fantasy managers should be throwing him back into their starting lineups this weekend with quarterback Aaron Rodgers looking as good as he's ever been through the first four games. Tight end Robert Tonyan exploded in Week 4 with Adams still on the sidelines, so don't expect nearly as many targets for the tight end now that Green Bay's No. 1 receiver is back. Even though Tampa's secondary has looked much better in 2020, Adams is a must-start whenever he's active.

  • Davante Adams Likely To Return Sunday

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) suited up for practice Monday, a step in the right direction that hell be cleared in time to play Sunday against Tampa Bay. Adams had reportedly wanted to play last Monday versus Atlanta, but was held back ahead of the teams bye week as a means of giving him an extended break. Aaron Rodgers went as far as to all but confirm that theyll have Adams back, saying nearly as much on the Pat McAfee Show. While fantasy managers may want to temper Week 1 excitement after Adams saw 17 targets, hell unquestionably be a major cog in the teams offense should he be cleared before Sunday.

  • Davante Adams Won't Play On Monday Night

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) Tweeted that he will not play on Monday night against the Falcons. The Packers are playing things extra cautious with their star receiver with the team being on a bye next week, as this will be his second straight missed game. Adams wants to return to the field only when he's 100 percent healthy. With Allen Lazard (core) out at least a month after needing core surgery, Green Bay's receiving depth will be tested against the Falcons, with Marquez Valdes-Scantling being their top option. He's in play as a flex option with both Adams and Lazard out. If you're scrambling at the last minute, tight end Robert Tonyan or rookie Jace Sternberger aren't bad pivots, and you also have the Chiefs-Patriots game to draw from in a pinch. Malik Taylor and Darrius Shepherd could play alongside MVS in three-receiver sets for the Packers.

  • Davante Adams Questionable For Monday Night

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams is officially listed as questionable for Monday night's clash against the Falcons. The wideout has been dealing with a hamstring injury which caused him to miss Week 3. It certainly puts fantasy managers in a bind because Adams will play on Monday and his playing status could come down to a game-time decision. Nevertheless, managers should keep a backup plan in case the wideout isn't good to go. Marquez Valdes-Scantling would emerge as the WR1 on the team if Adams cannot go and Falcons wideout Russell Gage would be another substitute if he is active.

  • Davante Adams Needs To Be 100 Percent To Play

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) said he needs to be 100 percent full-go to return to action on Monday night against the Falcons after sitting out the Week 3 win over the Saints with a mild hamstring injury. It could end up being a tough decision for fantasy managers to make if Adams draws a questionable tag with his game being on Monday night, but the good news is that he practiced for a second straight day on Friday. We should know more before you have to make a decision on Sunday as well, but it's looking like he's on the right track for a return. If Adams plays, he's an elite high-end WR1 in a great matchup against a beatable Atlanta secondary. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has become a popular waiver-wire addition now that Allen Lazard will miss a month with a core injury that required surgery.

  • Davante Adams Gets In A Limited Practice

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) returned to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday after sitting out of the team's Week 3 win over the Saints. Adams did very little (three catches, 36 yards) when he was hurt in Week 2, but he went off for 14 receptions, 156 yards and two scores in the season-opener on 17 targets against the Vikings. It looks like Adams is on track to return for the Monday night matchup with the Falcons and their shaky secondary, so Green Bay's All-Pro wideout will once again be a must-start high-end WR1 for his fantasy managers. Allen Lazard, who had over 100 yards receiving and a touchdown last week in Adams' absence, will be a boom/bust WR3/flex with Adams on track to return this week.

  • Davante Adams Officially Out For Week 3

    No surprise here, but it's now official: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) is out again this week when the Packers take on the New Orleans Saints. Hopefully, you weren't waiting for Adams's status still, but if you were, you've hopefully got Allen Lazard or Marquez Valdes-Scantling on your roster. Both guys have WR3 upside in a game that should feature a lot of offense.

  • Davante Adams Pushing To Play

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) is pushing to play and the team is going to give him a chance right up until game-time. Adams is listed as doubtful, though he is really trying to get out there for a primetime, NFC clash with the New Orleans Saints. Even if Adams plays, fantasy managers can't risk waiting to hear his status, considering the late starting time for the contest. Only managers who have Allen Lazard or Marquez Valdes-Scantling rostered can afford to wait for Adams' official status. Otherwise, you should look elsewhere. Lazard and Valdes-Scantling will benefit the most from Adams' absence against a beatable Saints secondary.

  • Davante Adams Looking Doubtful For Week 3

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) hasn't been able to practice this week as he's been dealing with a hamstring injury that he suffered in Week 2. On Friday, head coach Matt LaFleur said that the team would give Adams "the rest of the week" to get back up to speed, but also added that Adams was "probably doubtful" for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Fantasy owners should prepare to be without Adams this week. If Adams indeed misses the game, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard would be the biggest beneficiaries.

  • Davante Adams Misses Practice Wednesday

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. It's not a great start to the week, but Adams still has two more days to get back on the field heading into Week 3 against the Saints in what could be a high-scoring affair. The 27-year-old went off for 14 catches, 156 yards and two touchdowns in the season-opener, but he had just three receptions for 36 yards in the Week 2 win over Detroit while he battled his injury. Adams is a must-start, high-end WR1 whenever he's playing. Keep a close eye on his practice status the rest of the week. If for some reason he can't play, Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling would both become intriguing flex plays.

  • Davante Adams' Hamstring Injury May Not Be Serious

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) will be questionable heading into Week 3, but his injury may not be as serious as many thought last Sunday. Adams is the unquestioned No. 1 receiver on the team and was held out of the second half of the Packers 42-21 win over the Lions with the injury. But head coach Matt LaFleur downplayed the severity, telling reporters: "I know he wanted to go back in the game. I just told him, 'Hey, let's see how these next few series go and see if we need you.' ... If we don't need him, we didn't want to put him back in a position to do further harm to his own body." So the fact that the coaching staff was considering clearing him to return to play during the game should give fantasy managers a sigh of relief. Adams' status will need to be monitored all the way through the week, perhaps up to game time against the Saints.

  • Davante Adams Questionable To Return

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams (hamstring) is questionable to return in Week 2. After an explosive Week 1 performance, the veteran wideout has struggled throughout most of the afternoon against the Lions, racking up just three catches for 36 yards. With Green Bay up big over Detroit at the moment, Adams day may be over.

  • Davante Adams Could Feast On Lions

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will look to stay hot against the Lions in Week 2. Adams exploded for 14 receptions, 156 yards and two touchdowns against the Vikings in Week 1. Now he will face a Lions team decimated by injuries, especially in their secondary. Detroit was burned consistently in the fourth quarter by the Bears and now must deal with Adams. The Lions allowed 18 touchdowns to wide receivers last season and Adams should be considered an easy WR1 selection for Week 2.

  • Davante Adams Explodes For 156 Yards, Two Scores

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams enjoyed a monster Week 1, catching 14 passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers 43-34 win over the Vikings. Adams was making plays all over the field and led all players with 17 targets in the game. When the Packers offense is explosive, Adams is usually front-and-center. He will be a sure-fire WR1 selection heading into Week 2.

  • Davante Adams Has Dynamite Matchup

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will have a fantastic matchup in Week 1 against the Vikings. Adams will face a Vikings Defense that underwent an overhaul in the offseason and allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing receivers in 2019. The Vikings also allowed the seventh-most receptions to receivers, and Adams, in particular, tore up their secondary last season. In two games against Minnesota, the 27-year-old caught 20 passes for 222 yards. Adams is a no-brainer WR1 selection for Week 1's slate of games.

  • Davante Adams Should Have Strong Week 1

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams gets a strong matchup against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1 of the 2020 season. In two games against Minnesota last year, Adams averaged 12.5 targets per game, 10 catches per game and 111 receiving yards per game. It's a juicy matchup for the 27-year-old against Minnesota's young cornerbacks, both of whom are relatively unproven at the NFL level. Adams should easily finish as a WR1 and will likely be well worth his expensive price in DFS.

  • Davante Adams Primed For A Monster Season

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams is the consensus No. 2 receiver in fantasy drafts this year for good reason. In 2018, his last full season, he earned 169 targets and reeled in 111 catches for 1,386 yards for 13 touchdowns. Last year, he missed four games with a turf toe injury and was certainly less than 100% for a few of the games he did play. Still, he wound up with 127 targets and caught 83 passes for 997 yards and five touchdowns. The Packers didn't do much of anything to upgrade or change their wide receiver corps, so Adams should be in line for 150 or more targets on the year. He's a great target to start off your draft and will help give you a leg up in the receiver position on a weekly basis.
