Notre Dame sophomore RB Josh Adams rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries in Saturday's 34-31 loss to Virginia Tech.
Adams scored from one yard out with several minutes gone in the first quarter. He would top himself by a considerable yardage margin on touchdown No. 2 in the third quarter -- that one was a 67-yard gallop and gave the Irish a 31-21 lead entering the fourth quarter. They would not score again, watching their lead slip away into the abyss over the next 15 minutes of game time. Adams has blink-and-you'll-miss-it speed, but despite his ability to pop the big run, he has managed just three 100-yard rushing performances in 11 games. Sat, Nov 19, 2016 07:23:00 PM

Notre Dame sophomore RB Josh Adams rushed for 106 yards on 10 carries in Saturday's 39-10 win over Nevada.

Adams, Tarean Folston and QB DeShone Kizer all notched 10 carries to lead the Irish in the contest. The 6-foot-1, 212-pound Adams averaged 10.6 YPC with a long run of 48 yards. He and Folston are going to continue to split carries moving forward, but even in that committee, Adams has the explosive speed to capitalize on relatively limited carries.

Notre Dame freshman RB Josh Adams rushed for 168 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries in Saturday's 38-36 loss to Stanford.

Filling in for the injured C.J. Prosise, Adams averaged a nifty 9.3 YPC and showed off impressive speed in scooting into the end zone from 62 yards out in the third quarter. He's gone over 140 yards rushing in three of his last four games. Adams has proven himself a legitimate DFS option when he sees playing time.

Notre Dame freshman RB Josh Adams carried the ball 17 times for 141 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 28-7 win over Wake Forest.

Adams' 98-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter was the longest play from scrimmage in Notre Dame history. You probably have some idea of how long the Fighting Irish have been playing football, so it was quite a moment for the true frosh. Adams has stared in each of the past two games in place of the injured C.J. Prosise. If Prosise needs to take additional time off, keep Adams in your DFS thoughts.

Notre Dame freshman RB Josh Adams carried the ball 20 times for 147 yards in the school's 42-30 win over Pittsburgh.

Adams took over lead ball carrier duties for an injured C.J. Prosise and looked great. Adams is the most physical runner on Notre Dame's roster, a slight contrast to Prosise's skills. It is too early to know how long Prosise might be out, but Adams is almost Notre Dame's last resort at the position.
