Davante Adams caught 10-of-14 targets for 84 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 14 game versus the Browns.
Adams was relatively quiet all game before catching four passes for 35 yards and both of his touchdowns over the final two minutes of regulation and the opening drive of overtime. Adams caught a 1-yard touchdown pass on a back-shoulder throw with 17 seconds left in the game to send the game to an extra frame and then turned a short slant on a third down play into a 25-yard game-winning touchdown in which he shed multiple tackles. Adams was the lone Packers' wide receiver that has survived Brett Hundley taking over, catching five of Hundley's eight touchdown passes on the season. Whether or not Aaron Rodgers returns next week, Adams will be a WR2 option against the Panthers. Dec 10 - 4:50 PM

Davante Adams caught 4-of-6 targets for 42 yards in the Packers' Week 13 win over the Bucs.

Brett Hundley threw for just 84 yards on 22 attempts in this one, so Adams accounted for 50% of those yards and led the team in receiving. He posted 3-28 on the opening drive but didn't catch another pass until late in the fourth quarter. Adams remains the only fantasy-viable pass catcher in Green Bay. He'll likely see a lot of Browns top CB Jason McCourty in Week 14.
Dec 3 - 4:51 PM

Davante Adams caught 5-of-9 targets for 82 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against Pittsburgh.

Adams continued to show his rapport with Hundley, leading the team in targets with 9. His touchdown came on a 55-yard pass that he was able to haul in and beat the safety. This marks Adams' third straight game with 90-plus yards or a touchdown. He will be a WR2 in Week 13 against the Buccaneers.
Nov 27 - 12:26 AM

Davante Adams caught 8-of-10 targets for 126 yards in Week 11 against Baltimore.

Adams was the only bright spot for the Packers in a game Brett Hundley had four turnovers. He led Green Bay in targets and continued to be Hundley's clear No. 1 option. Despite league-worst quarterback play, Adams has 90-plus yards or a touchdown the last two weeks. He'll be a WR2 for Week 12 against the Steelers.
Nov 19 - 4:37 PM

Davante Adams caught 5-of-8 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 10 win over the Bears.

Just as he has been since Brett Hundley took over at quarterback a month ago, Adams was Hundley's go-to guy in this one. The Packers pinpointed Bears LCB Kyle Fuller as a defender to attack and did so relentlessly with Adams, who caught a 19-yard touchdown in Fuller's coverage and also beat him for a 42-yard gain down the right sideline. Adams' floor will remain low with Hundley under center, but he's clearly emerged as the Packers' new No. 1 wideout post-Rodgers. Green Bay's passing game gets a tougher Week 11 matchup against Baltimore.
Nov 12 - 4:30 PM

Davante Adams caught 7-of-10 targets for 53 yards in the Packers' Week 9 loss to the Lions.

Adams has had mixed results with Brett Hundley; he caught Hundley's touchdown pass in relief against the Vikings in Week 6 before flopping with a 2-12 line in Week 7. The PPR points weren't bad in this one, but there just isn't any upside without Aaron Rodgers. Adams is a WR3 moving forward. Next up for this anemic passing attack is a short-week road date with the Bears.
Nov 7 - 12:01 AM

Davante Adams caught 2-of-5 targets for 12 yards in the Packers' Week 7 loss to the Saints.

The worst-case scenario unfolded for the Pack on Sunday, as first-time starter Brett Hundley was completely overwhelmed under center. He generated all of 87 yards on 12 completions. It means that, until we see Hundley put something good on tape, Adams will, at best, be a boom/bust WR3. The Lions' defense has been inconsistent, but aren't a get-right matchup for Week 9.
Oct 22 - 5:29 PM

Davante Adams caught 5-of-10 targets for 54 yards and one touchdown in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

Adams found himself in Xavier Rhodes' coverage a lot of the day, but was able to sneak loose for a wide-open touchdown when Rhodes wasn't on him. Adams is a touchdown machine but will find things tougher moving forward with no Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) and Brett Hundley at quarterback. Adams will be on the WR2/3 borderline next week at home against the Saints.
Oct 15 - 5:18 PM

Davante Adams hauled in 7-of-11 targets for 66 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 5 win over the Cowboys.

Adams did not show any ill effects from the big hit and concussion last week, leading the team with four catches in the first half including a 10-yard touchdown on a beautiful throw from Aaron Rodgers. He did not have much to do most of the second half, but he came alive on the final drive, opening it with a 14-yard catch and coming down with the 12-yard score to win the game. Adams now has four touchdowns in five games this season. Jordy Nelson was not on the field for the final drive, and while the Packers did not announce an injury after the game, Nelson missing time would boost Adams' fantasy value. Either way, Adams will be a solid WR2 next week in Minnesota.
Oct 8 - 8:09 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) is active for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

This was expected after he cleared the protocol on Saturday. Adams is not going to win the yardage title, but he is a threat to score every week. In a plus matchup against the Cowboys, he is a solid WR2.
Oct 8 - 2:59 PM

Davante Adams has cleared the concussion protocol and is expected to play in Sunday's game with Dallas.

Adams won't miss any time despite getting stretched off on a helmet-to-helmet hit last week. He had been trending toward playing after traveling with the team on Saturday. Adams is off to a slow start, but has at least 60 yards or a touchdown in three-of-four games. He's in a plus Week 5 spot against an injured Dallas secondary.
Oct 7 - 2:30 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) traveled with the team to Dallas.

It is not clear if Adams has completed the protocol, but this is a good sign for his availability against the Cowboys. If he plays, Adams will be worth starting in a good matchup against the Dallas secondary.
Oct 7 - 2:02 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) is questionable for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Adams was a limited participant at all three practices this week, a relative shock given the menacing helmet-to-helmet hit he took last week against the Bears. There are still hurdles to clear, however, as Adams has yet to officially clear the concussion protocol. Sunday's game in Dallas kicks off at 4:25 PM ET.
Oct 6 - 4:17 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday that Adams needs to be cleared by the time the Packers get on the plane to head to Dallas, which will either be this afternoon or tomorrow. Adams has been practicing on a limited basis this week, but he still has a hurdle to clear likely with an independent neurologist that needs to clear him. Geronimo Allison would benefit if Adams sits.
Oct 6 - 12:08 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Adams is trending in the right direction, but his Week 5 availability should not be taken for granted. We should officially learn his status when the Packers release their Friday injury report. Adams will be an upside WR3 if he suits up.
