Davante Adams caught his lone target for a 21-yard touchdown in Green Bay's Week 7 win over the Panthers.
The one-look day was disappointing, but Adams remained firmly ahead of Jarrett Boykin, who wasn't targeted in his return from a groin injury. Adams' score was a third-quarter grab he caught along the right hash before cutting through the teeth of the defense en route to the end zone. Adams has obvious home-run potential, but his inconsistent usage makes him a boom-or-bust WR4 for fantasy purposes. Oct 19 - 6:05 PM

Davante Adams caught six passes for 77 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win at Miami.

With Jarrett Boykin (groin) still sidelined, Adams showed well again. Aaron Rodgers' first two targets of the game went to the second-round rookie and he also showed chemistry on a critical fake-spike play deep in the fourth quarter. Over the last two weeks, Adams has seven catches for 88 yards and one touchdown on 12 targets. He'll be a WR3 option against the Panthers in Week 8 as long as Boykin sits.
Oct 12 - 4:30 PM

Aaron Rodgers says he's noticed rookie Davante Adams creating separation when reviewing the Packers' games on tape.

Adams hasn't quite had a breakthrough game yet, but it's coming. "Davante, he’s open on film a lot," Rodgers said. "He’s run a lot of good routes. He only had one catch last week, but if he stays confident and keeps making plays like he’s doing in practice, the ball is going to keep coming his way." Adams is still a boom-or-bust WR3, but could leap to WR2 status quickly if Rodgers begins trusting him more. Over the last two weeks, Adams has played 74 percent of Green Bay's offensive snaps. Jarrett Boykin (groin/knee) is considered "highly unlikely" to play Sunday against the Dolphins.
Oct 8 - 11:12 PM

Davante Adams caught one pass for 11 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's Week 5 win over the Vikings.

Adams was the full-time No. 3 receiver with Jarrett Boykin sidelined. He wasn't on the same page with Aaron Rodgers for most of the first half, securing just one of his four targets. His touchdown came on an 11-yard slant route against Josh Robinson. Adams should continue to start in three-wide sets in Week 6 against Miami, but will remain just a WR4.
Oct 3 - 12:18 AM

Davante Adams caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Adams played better than his box scores looks as he soaked up all the No. 3 WR duties. He had a 34-yard touchdown called back by a holding penalty and also got targeted on a red-zone bubble screen. Unfortunately, the Packers ran more "12" packages than they usually do, possibly because Jarrett Boykin (knee) was inactive. Adams remains a hold as he'll have better days if Boykin remains sidelined. The Packers are now on a short week as they face the Vikings Thursday night.

Davante Adams will be the Packers' No. 3 wideout in Sunday's game against the Bears.

It's a monster opportunity for Adams, a physical and polished rookie who was Derek Carr's go-to guy at Fresno State last season. He'll play on roughly 70 percent of the snaps against a banged up and bad Bears defense, putting him squarely on the WR3 radar. Intriguing prospect Jeff Janis will be the No. 4 wideout.
Sep 28 - 12:05 PM

Davante Adams played primarily as the No. 4 receiver in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions, catching 2-of-3 targets for 11 yards.

Adams got some run ahead of Jarrett Boykin, but drew the first-half ire of Aaron Rodgers by running the wrong route on a first-quarter play. Adams returned to some three-wide sets in the second half. Boykin drew four looks, but caught only one pass, and committed a brutal drop. All in all, today was a wash for Adams' quest to move ahead of Boykin. He's still the higher-upside stash.
Sep 21 - 5:49 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said WR Davante Adams has "earned opportunities" and produced.

McCarthy declined to name Adams his new starter opposite Jordy Nelson, but it appears we're eventually heading in that direction. After a Jarrett Boykin red-zone drop in Week 2, Adams came on and shined with a 5-50-0 line on seven targets and 37 snaps. As the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says, Boykin is "steady" but Adams can "stress a defense." The second-round rookie is the one to stash as the potential home run if he can fully pass Boykin. As for this week's potential shootout with the Lions, expect a rotation.
Sep 18 - 8:06 AM

Davante Adams out-snapped Jarrett Boykin 37-25 in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Boykin started as the No. 3 receiver, but got a quick hook after failing to come up with a tough pass in the red zone. Adams came on and immediately impressed, finishing with a 5-50-0 line on seven targets. If the second-round rookie hasn't forced an all-out rotation here, he's certainly breathing down the veteran's neck. Adams is worth an add in deeper formats just in case he steals the third wideout job full-time.
Sep 16 - 8:18 AM

Davante Adams caught five passes for 50 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.

Adams didn't open the game in three-wide sets, but he began to get run ahead of Jarrett Boykin after Boykin dropped a difficult pass in the red zone. When the dust settled, Adams had 5-50-0 on seven targets and Boykin had 1-6-0 on three targets. We'll be anxious to see the final snap counts. Don't expect a complete changing of the guard here, but Adams is clearly breathing down Boykin's neck and may have passed him. He's worth an add in deeper formats.
Sep 14 - 8:02 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says WR Davante Adams "started to take off" in the final weeks of training camp.

Adams came on strong after a slow start to camp and ran as the No. 4 receiver in Week 1. The second-round rookie was not targeted on nine snaps, but his progress is worth monitoring. Adams, a versatile receiver, will be a strong fantasy add if any of Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb or Jarrett Boykin goes down.
Sep 9 - 8:08 AM

Packers No. 4 receiver Davante Adams wasn't targeted in Green Bay's Week 1 loss to the Seahawks.

If Adams played a snap, we didn't catch it. The doughnut isn't surprising on a night where the Pack couldn't get anything going offensively. There are better days ahead, but Adams isn't on the re-draft radar for the time being.
Sep 5 - 12:55 AM

Davante Adams had no catches on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Adams played strictly with the second- and third-stringers, and had a couple tough catches escape his grasp. Through three preseason games, the second-round rookie has four catches for 50 yards and no touchdowns. If he's going to pass Jarrett Boykin, it's going to have to come sometime during the season. He hasn't closed ground this month.
Aug 22 - 11:20 PM

Packers special teams coach Shawn Slocum said he's willing to give rookie Davante Adams another chance on punt returns despite his struggles in last week's preseason game.

Adams was a disaster in the preseason opener, fumbling two punts and suffering a wrist injury. Jeff Janis and UDFA Ryan White are also getting looks and could compete for the job. The Packers haven't ruled out re-inserting Randall Cobb on punt returns.
Aug 15 - 5:35 PM

Davante Adams had two catches for 22 yards in Saturday night's preseason opener against the Titans.

Adams started with Jordy Nelson sitting out, rotating with Jarrett Boykin in two-wide sets. His usage on offense was encouraging, but Adams had a disastrous game on special teams. He muffed back-to-back punts, including a fumble that the Titans recovered inside the 20-yard line. Adams still managed a better receiving game than Boykin, who finished without a catch. The Packers' No. 3 receiver job likely won't be decided until the third preseason game.
