  • Raiders Not Planning To Trade Davante Adams

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    While GM proclamations about trades involving marquee players have led to course reversals before, new Raiders front office boss Tom Telesco did make a notable effort to insist Davante Adams will not be going anywhere this year. Regarding Adams, Telesco said Tuesday “He’s a Raider.” Adams had recently expressed excitement about returning for a third […]

  • Raiders Say Davante Adams Isn't Going Anywhere

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    New Las Vegas Raiders general manager Tom Telesco emphasized on Tuesday that wide receiver Davante Adams isn't going anywhere despite trade rumors. "He's a Raider," Telesco said. Adams is guaranteed a full $16.89 million base salary in 2024 and has three years left on his current deal. Adams broke a streak of six straight Pro Bowl appearances in 2023, although he still managed to catch over 100 passes (103) for the fourth straight year while gaining 1,144 yards and eight touchdowns in 17 games. The 31-year-old could become more inconsistent as the Raiders look for an upgrade at quarterback through the draft, but it's hard to debate his WR1 worth in fantasy after posting four straight 1,000-yard seasons while finding the end zone 51 times since 2020.

  • Davante Adams Won't Be Disciplined For Shoving Photographer

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    The NFL informed Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams that he won't be disciplined for shoving a photographer after a 2022 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to sources. Prosecutors dismissed a misdemeanor assault charge against Adams last summer, but the league's probe into the matter remained opened until now. Fantasy managers considering taking the 31-year-old All-Pro wideout in drafts this fall will not have to worry about him opening up the 2024 with a suspension. Adams remains one of the best pass-catchers in the game and has four straight 1,000-yard seasons and four straight 100-catch seasons, but 2023 was also the first season without recording double-digit touchdowns since 2019.

  • Raiders Expected To Hire Kliff Kingsbury As Offensive Coordinator

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    The Las Vegas Raiders are expected to hire former Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury as their new offensive coordinator, according to league sources. In addition to Kingsbury, the Raiders added Marvin Lewis as an assistant head coach to Antonio Pierce. The addition of Kingsbury as the Raiders' offensive coordinator will now lead to rampant speculation that the team will be looking to trade up to the top of the 2024 draft to select quarterback Caleb Williams, who Kingsbury coached at USC in 2023. Kingsbury was the head coach of the Cardinals for four years before joining the college ranks, and he went 28-37-1 in his time in the desert. Arizona twice finished in the top 10 in offensive yards under Kingsbury, and his addition to Vegas' coaching staff should be good news for wideouts Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers.

  • Falcons Request To Interview Antonio Pierce

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    The Atlanta Falcons have requested permission to interview Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Antonio Pierce for their head-coaching job, according to sources. Pierce interviewed for the Tennessee Titans' head-coaching gig on Saturday. The Raiders have not conducted any known head-coach interviews to this point, but it was reported on Saturday that Pierce is the leading candidate to become the full-time head coach for 2024 and beyond. At this point, it would be a surprise if Pierce didn't stay in Vegas, but that's not stopping other teams from checking him out. The 45-year-old former linebacker took over for the Raiders after Josh McDaniels was fired on Halloween and went 5-4 to close out the year as the interim head coach, including wins over all three of the team's AFC West rivals. Raiders players, most notably edge rusher Maxx Crosby and receiver Davante Adams, have been vocal in their support for Pierce getting the promotion.

  • Antonio Pierce The Leading Candidate For Raiders Full-Time Job

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Antonio Pierce has emerged as the leading candidate to become the team's full-time head coach with the support of key players there, according to league sources. There will be other options for Raiders owner Mark Davis to consider, but as one source said, "I would be blown away if Antonio weren't the pick." All-Pro pass-rusher Maxx Crosby reportedly is set to request a trade from the organization if the Raiders pass on keeping Pierce as their full-time head coach. Pierce took over for Josh McDaniels, who was fired midseason, and the team finished 5-4 under Pierce. In addition to Crosby, receiver Davante Adams has been vocal in his support of Pierce to stick around in the head-coaching position. Pierce played linebacker in the NFL from 2001-09, with his later years including a Super Bowl championship with the New York Giants.

  • Davante Adams Scores In Week 18 Win

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams led the team in targets again in Week 18 against the Denver Broncos. Despite being guarded by Patrick Surtain II, Adams earned a team-high eight targets in the Raiders Week 18 win. In this contest, Adam brought in five of his eight targets for 46 yards and a touchdown. The veteran wide receiver had a pedestrian outing compared to his massive performance in Week 17, but he salvaged his day with a score. Adams' fantasy production was less consistent than in seasons past, but he proved to still be an elite producer at the wide receiver position. It remains to be seen who will be throwing Adams passes next season, but he will be able to produce regardless of who is under center.

  • Davante Adams With A Tough Matchup In Week 18

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams had a tremendous performance in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts. Adams caught 13 passes for 126 yards and two touchdowns on 21 targets on the road against Indianapolis. Despite middling quarterback play all season, Adams had good performances based on incredible volume. The Raiders face the Denver Broncos for the regular season finale in Week 18. The Broncos have a decent secondary, headlined by their star corner, Patrick Surtain II. Adams will likely face Surtain for most of this contest, so fantasy managers playing in Week 18 should temper expectations. That said, Adams sees a colossal target share every week, so the opportunity for a big performance is always on the table. Fantasy managers know Adams is a must-start every week.

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams led the team in receptions and receiving yards in the loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Adams brought in 13 catches on 21 targets for 126 yards and two touchdowns. Despite the strong performance from Adams, the Raiders lost the game and dropped to 7-9 on the season. The Raiders take on the Denver Broncos in Week 18. Adams will likely be covered by star corner Patrick Surtain II in that contest. Despite the tough matchup, Adams is a must-start every week because of his massive role in the Las Vegas offense. Fantasy managers should feel confident about starting Adams after this strong performance.

  • Davante Adams With A Tough Matchup In Week 16

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams had eight catches on 12 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 beatdown of the Los Angeles Chargers. Adams saw double-digit targets for the seventh time this season. Adams was on the injury report heading into last week's matchup, but the star receiver is healthy this week. Adams will face off against Chiefs shadow corner L'Jarius Sneed on Monday. The last time the two matched up, Adams finished the game with five catches for 73 yards. Despite the tough matchup, the Raiders offense looked unstoppable against the Chargers last week, so Adams is still a must-start. Raiders rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell trusts Adams and will likely force-feed him again this week. It should also be noted that Adams is only 32 receiving yards away from another 1,000-yard season, so he's probably a lock for at least 33 yards. Fantasy managers should trust Adams this week in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Davante Adams Scores In Raiders Rout

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams had eight receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in the Week 15 blowout against the Los Angeles Chargers. Adams was easily the top target for the Raiders, but everyone got involved in the 63-point scoring night. The Raiders star receiver caught his touchdown on a pass thrown from fellow receiver Jakobi Meyers. The Raiders offense was clicking on all cylinders, and Adams was able to produce despite being questionable coming into the contest. The Raiders take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16. Adams will likely draw the coverage of shadow corner L'Jarius Sneed, but the explosiveness of the Raiders offense on Thursday night should give fantasy managers optimism for this matchup. Adams proved he is still a superstar receiver, and fantasy managers should continue to start him every week regardless of the matchup.

  • Davante Adams Officially Active Thursday Night

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams (illness) is officially active on Thursday night and will face the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers. Adams was under the weather on Wednesday and was listed as questionable to play coming into this one. He may not be feeling 100 percent, but he'll give it a go and should remain locked into all starting fantasy lineups. The Raiders won't be as strong on offense without primary starting running back Josh Jacobs (quadriceps) on Thursday, but that could mean that they look to get Adams more touches against a porous Chargers defense. Adams had eight catches on 13 targets for 75 yards in the first meeting against the Bolts in Week 4. The 30-year-old makes for a strong WR2 in fantasy lineups this week.

  • Davante Adams Expected To Play Against Chargers

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams (illness) did not practice with the team on Wednesday due to an illness and was officially listed as questionable to play on Thursday night against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers, but he is expected to suit up and play in Week 15. Adams may not be feeling 100 percent for this one, but fantasy managers shouldn't be putting him on their bench in the first round of the playoffs with everything on the line. The 30-year-old hasn't been an elite WR1 for fantasy managers in 2023 given the Raiders' struggles at quarterback, but he's still a pretty safe floor WR2 and could see more targets come his way on Thursday in a great matchup with running back Josh Jacobs (quadriceps) looking unlikely to play. In the first matchup against LA in Week 4, Adams had eight catches on 13 targets for 75 yards.

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams had seven catches on 10 targets for 53 yards in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings. Adams saw double-digit targets for the sixth time this season. Despite making it out of the game unscathed, Adams has been on the injury report all week with an illness. The Raiders star receiver did not participate in Wednesday's practice and is officially listed as questionable for Thursday night. The Raiders take on the Los Angeles Chargers this week. The Chargers secondary is exploitable and Adams should have a decent performance if he can play. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on any updates for Adams and plan in case he misses the game.

    Headshot for Davante Adams

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams (illness) is questionable ahead of Thursday's AFC West meeting with the Los Angeles Chargers. The veteran is battling an illness, which recently kept him out of Wednesday's practice session. Fortunately for fantasy managers, there's still a chance he could be out there. But with the Raiders unlikely to enter the postseason picture, there's also a chance he won't. To make matters worse, Vegas may also be without Josh Jacobs (quadriceps), who hasn't practiced all week. Nonetheless, Jakobi Meyers and Hunter Renfrow would likely get more involved if Adams isn't available. However, neither man is expected to make an impact for fantasy managers, especially since the Raiders offense is a mess.

Adams was heavily involved again as he led the team in targets and receiving yards. Rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell continued to look for Adams, but both offenses struggled to get going in this contest. The Raiders star wide receiver will take on the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15. Despite scoring only one touchdown in his last 10 games, Adams has been a serviceable asset for fantasy managers and should be a strong start against the Chargers next week.

Adams saw double-digit targets the two weeks before but faced a tough matchup against Chiefs shadow corner L'Jarius Sneed. The Raiders take on the Minnesota Vikings this week. The Vikings rank 23rd in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers this season. The Raiders may lean on Adams in this matchup after their bye week. With rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell looking for Adams often, fantasy managers can again start him as a WR1.
