Davante Adams caught 1-of-7 targets for 17 yards Week 13 against the Texans.
Adams had some chances in this game, but he was only able to come down with one of them. That catch was a disappointment as well, as Adams just stepped out of bounds before running over several would-be tacklers for another 30 yards. Adams also dropped what would have been a long gain down the sideline and was overthrown deep down the field in the first half. Overall it was a very disappointing game, but Adams still was second on the team with seven targets and should avoid Richard Sherman on most of the snaps next week. Despite the bad day, Adams will remain a solid WR2 against Seattle. Dec 4 - 4:22 PM

Aaron Rodgers said he "never lost faith" in Davante Adams.

That was apparent as Rodgers continued to pepper Adams with targets last season despite a ridiculously low catch rate and yards-per-reception average, but that faith has paid off this season. Now healthy, Adams has improved his efficiency across the board in his third year and is tied for fourth in the league with eight touchdowns. A major factor in a pass-first offense, Adams will be an every-week WR2 even in a tough schedule down the stretch.
Dec 1 - 11:47 AM

Davante Adams caught 5-of-6 targets for 113 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 27-13, Week 12 win over the Eagles on Monday night.

That's called efficiency and big-play ability. Adams' six targets were only the third-most on the team, but he made them count. Adams got the scoring started with a 12-yard touchdown on a slant route on the opening possession, beating CB Leodis McKelvin badly on the play. Adams also scored the Packers' second touchdown, securing a perfectly-placed dime from Aaron Rodgers in the back of the end zone from 20 yards out. His longest gain went for 50 yards on a leaping catch deep down the right sideline. Adams entered the season with four career touchdowns through two seasons. He's already up to eight this year with five weeks to play. Adams will be in a tough spot next week at home against the Texans, but he's settled in as an every-week WR2.
Nov 28 - 11:32 PM

Davante Adams caught 3-of-6 passes for 42 yards in Week 11.

It's a step back after Adams had 70-plus yards or a touchdown in five straight games. Adams had multiple drops and struggled to get open against Washington's outside corners. He was getting shut down before a 37-yard fourth quarter catch. Adams should rebound as a WR2 against the Eagles in Week 12.
Nov 21 - 1:21 AM

Davante Adams caught 6-of-9 targets for 156 yards in the Packers' Week 10 loss to the Titans.

The yards were a career high for the third-year pro. Adams' long gain of 46 could have been a 85-yard touchdown, but lacking long speed, he got tracked down rather easily. A target monster in the Packers' stuck-in-neutral offense, Adams has settled in as an every-week WR2.
Nov 13 - 6:09 PM

Davante Adams caught 4-of-8 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown Week 9 against the Colts.

Adams was stuck on two catches for -1 yards for most of the game, but he came up big with a 40-yard catch to jump start a comeback in the fourth quarter. He capped that drive with a two-yard score on a slant, but he was unable to come up with the two-point conversion. This was a disappointing outing considering Adams totaled 25 catches the last two games, and he could start to lose his role with Randall Cobb (hamstring) and James Starks (knee) potentially returning next week. Despite being on pace for an 88/930/12 line, he will be more of a WR3 against the Titans.
Nov 6 - 8:27 PM

Davante Adams snagged 12-of-14 targets for 74 yards Sunday in the Packers' Week 8 loss to the Falcons.

Adams saw another massive workload in Week 8, but only managed 6.2 yards per catch. He had a great day in PPR leagues but was merely average on the standard slate. Adams was the intended receiver on nine of Aaron Rodgers’ 17 second-half attempts and has now drawn 30 looks from Rodgers over his last two outings. That kind of volume can’t be ignored. Adams will be a WR3 option against the Colts next week.
Oct 30 - 8:55 PM

Davante Adams secured 13-of-16 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns Thursday in the Packers' Week 7 win over the Bears.

Adams was the Packers’ only source of offense in the first half, catching six-of-eight targets for 56 yards. He was even better after the break, hauling in the first of his two touchdowns early in the third quarter. The pass was underthrown by Aaron Rodgers, but Adams caught it anyway despite smothering coverage from De’Vante Bausby. His second touchdown came on a complete defensive breakdown as the Bears elected to double-team Ty Montgomery while leaving Adams wide open. Adams spent most of the week in the concussion protocol but didn’t look any worse for the wear on Thursday. He’ll draw the Falcons in Week 8.
Oct 20 - 11:45 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) is active for Week 7 against the Bears.

Wow. Adams suffered a concussion Sunday against Dallas, but was somehow able to get the green light after returning to a limited practice on Wednesday. He'll slide into his usual role as Green Bay's No. 3 receiver. WR Jared Abbrederis, S Chris Banjo, TE Jared Cook, T Kyle Murphy, CB Damarious Randall, CB Quinten Rollins and RB James Starks round out the Packers' inactives for Week 7. Don Jackson, who was on the Packers' practice squad less than 24 hours ago, will draw the start at running back.
Oct 20 - 7:17 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) is questionable for Thursday night's Week 7 game against the Bears.

Adams was able to get in a limited practice Wednesday, but he still needs to pass the remainder of the league's concussion protocol. If he can't go, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis, and Trevor Davis will mix in as the No. 3 receiver.
Oct 19 - 3:56 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) didn't practice on Monday.

Adams left Sunday's game with a concussion. With only a few days to get ready before Thursday night's matchup against the Bears, Adams is looking very iffy for Week 7. If he sits, either Jeff Janis or Ty Montgomery would play in three-wide sets with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
Oct 17 - 4:41 PM

Davante Adams exited Week 6 against the Cowboys with a possible head injury.

Adam was high-lowed at the end of a third quarter catch. He stayed down on the turf for several minutes before walking off under his own power. Adams was taken to the locker room for further tests.
Oct 16 - 6:38 PM

Davante Adams caught 5-of-8 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 5 win over the Giants.

Adams scored on a 29-yard catch-and-run down the right sideline. He was more involved this week with the Packers forced to check down. Randall Cobb left late in the game after taking a hit to the helmet, but was cleared of a concussion. Adams isn't more than a WR4 for Week 6.
Oct 10 - 12:54 AM

Davante Adams hauled in both of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown Week 3 against the Lions.

It was the rare efficient day for Adams, although Aaron Rodgers did not give him many chances to make a mistake. Adams easily got open with a quick outside-in move off the line and lowered his shoulder for a 14-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Despite the score, Adams will be nothing more than a WR5 coming out of the Week 4 bye.
Sep 25 - 4:26 PM

Davante Adams caught 3-of-7 targets for 26 yards in Week 2 against the Vikings.

Adams lost a fumble on the first drive of the game. He drew a 40-yard interference call that led to a touchdown, but that was his only impact. Adams isn't more than a WR5.
