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.

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.
Aug 9 - 10:39 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says Davante Adams "might turn out to be best in the slot."

Through two weeks of camp, Adams has not looked like a deep threat from the outside. As expected, he's profiled more as a possession receiver thanks to strength, plus ball skills and excellent YAC ability. Dynasty owners should note that incumbent slot man Randall Cobb is entering the final year of his contract.
Aug 7 - 9:03 AM

Second-round WR Davante Adams is listed as a second-string wideout on the Packers' initial depth chart.

It's notable that fellow rookie Richard Rodgers was listed as a fourth-string tight end. The Packers don't appear to be playing games with Adams, as he's ahead of incumbents Myles White and Chris Harper. Any injuries to Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb would make Adams a must-add this season, and we wouldn't rule him beating out Jarrett Boykin for No. 3 reps at some point in the season.
Aug 5 - 2:17 PM

Packers second-round WR Davante Adams reportedly battled drop issues during OTAs and minicamp.

We wouldn't make too much of this as Adams showed excellent ball skills and strong hands while catching 131 passes from Derek Carr at Fresno State last season. We're still expecting him to push Jarrett Boykin very hard for the No. 3 wideout job at training camp. Adams has a significant natural talent edge.
Jun 30 - 10:30 AM

Packers signed No. 53 overall pick WR Davante Adams to a four-year contract.

Adams (6-foot-1, 212 pounds) was Derek Carr's go-to receiver at Fresno State. Although he lacks elite long speed (4.54), he's a plus athlete (39.5-inch vertical) with high-pointing ability in traffic. He's drawn Michael Crabtree and Keenan Allen comparisons as a possession target with top-notch ball skills who excels after the catch. Adams is unlikely to make much of a re-draft impact as a rookie, but with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb both in contract years, Adams needs to be 100 percent owned in Dynasty formats.
Jun 12 - 4:26 PM

Packers selected Fresno State WR Davante Adams with the No. 53 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Adams (6-foot 7/8, 212) left school after his redshirt sophomore year, when he led the nation in receptions (131) and touchdown catches (24) as Derek Carr's go-to receiver. Despite lacking elite long speed (4.54), Adams is a plus athlete (39.5-inch vertical) with high-pointing ability in traffic. He's drawn Michael Crabtree and Keenan Allen comparisons as a possession target with top-notch ball skills who excels after the catch. Football analytics suggest younger prospects offer higher NFL ceilings, and Adams won't turn 22 until late December. Adams' landing spot doesn't appear perfect on paper due to Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Jarrett Boykin's presence, but he's good enough to ascend. Adams should be on Dynasty league radars in the second and third rounds of rookie drafts.
May 9 - 8:46 PM

Fresno State WR Davante Adams clocked unofficial forty times of 4.50 and 4.54 at the Scouting Combine.

His official forty time was later announced at 4.56. Adams was dominant statistically with Derek Carr threading him passes in college, but he's a poor man's Anquan Boldin with middling straight-line speed. Some NFL teams will push him down draft boards based on these forty times at under 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds. He's a day-two draft prospect.
Feb 23 - 11:01 AM

Fresno State WR Davante Adams measured 6-foot 7/8 and 212 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine weigh-in.

He's over an inch shorter and four pounds lighter than his college listing. Derek Carr's go-to guy, Adams led the nation in receptions (131) and touchdown catches (24) as a redshirt sophomore this past season, and finished second nationally in receiving yards per game (132.2). He's a day-two prospect.
Feb 21 - 2:43 PM's Tony Pauline reports Fresno State redshirt sophomore WR Davante Adams will declare for the NFL draft.

Adams has signed with an agent, ending his amateurism. A 6-foot-2, 216-pound outside receiver, Adams thrived catching passes from likely first-round QB Derek Carr this season, making an eye-popping 131 grabs for 1,718 yards and 24 touchdowns. Adams excels at adding yards after the catch, and high-pointing passes. Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes Adams has a legit chance to go in the first two rounds.
