Davante Adams caught 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Packers' preseason opener.
Adams did drop one, but he made up for it by adjusting on a poorly thrown ball after putting a nasty move on the corner to get open. Adams may not go for 12 touchdowns again, but his third-year breakout was not a fluke. He is a good pick in the fourth round. Aug 10 - 9:38 PM

Davante Adams caught 3-of-3 targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Falcons.

Labeled one of the worst "every-day," so to speak, players in football as he played through an ankle injury last season, Adams had a breakout 2016. His 12 touchdown receptions were tied for second in football, and tripled his previous career total of four. Adams spiked his yards per catch to 13.3 after entering 2016 with an ugly 10.5 mark. Per Pro Football Focus, 407 of Adams’ 997 yards came after first contact. If there was an issue, it was Adams’ hands, as he muffed nine passes. Still somehow only 24, Adams has earned Aaron Rodgers’ trust and will be a legitimate top-15 option for 2017 after finishing as the WR7 (seriously) this year.

Davante Adams (ankle) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

As are Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring). Adams did not practice at all this week and reportedly did not run any routes in the pre-game warm-up. With Nelson back, it is possible Adams is nothing more than an emergency option. He is a risky DFS bet, albeit one with a sky-high ceiling.

Davante Adams (ankle, questionable) is expected to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

The Packers' receiving corps is pretty banged up but it looks like they'll have all their heavy hitters on hand for Sunday's NFC title game. That includes Adams, who went for 74 yards on 12 catches against Atlanta when he faced them in Week 8. It's fair to wonder how effective Adams will be after missing all three practices this week.
Jan 22 - 10:16 AM

Davante Adams (ankle) missed practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

As expected, Adams was held out of practice all week. He is expected to participate in Saturday's walkthrough and play against Atlanta, but Adams is unlikely to be 100 percent. Green Bay's pass-catcher corps is in injury disarray.
Jan 20 - 4:10 PM

Davante Adams (ankle) won't guarantee his status for the NFC Championship Game.

Adams says the issue isn't as debilitating as his 2015 ankle injury, but that he won't know his status until the weekend. Adams is expected to test his ankle on Saturday. He's yet to practice, and will be held out on Friday, as well. If Adams suits up against the Falcons, he'll almost certainly be on a snap count. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) also banged up, the Packers are going to need contributions from Randall Cobb, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis.
Jan 19 - 5:51 PM

Speaking Thursday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said injured receivers Davante Adams (ankle), Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) probably wouldn't play Sunday if it were the regular season.

Neither Adams nor Allison practiced on Thursday, and aren't expected to do so until Saturday's walk-through. McCarthy's comments indicated all three players will play, but none of them are anywhere close to 100 percent. It could be a problem in a game where the Pack will have to score all afternoon to keep up. Randall Cobb is shaping up as a nice DFS play. Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis are going to have to play increased snaps.
Jan 19 - 2:16 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers expect Davante Adams (ankle) to play Sunday against the Falcons.

RapSheet adds Geronimo Allison (leg) is also expected to suit up. It is a surprising report considering Adams has already been ruled out for the first three days of practice, but perhaps the Packers are just getting him as much rest as possible. His availability for Saturday's practice still needs to be monitored closely, but as of now he can be penciled into DFS lineups.
Jan 19 - 10:25 AM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel describes Davante Adams' ankle injury as similar to the injury he tried playing through last year.

A high ankle sprain was at least partially to blame for Adams' disappointing sophomore campaign, from which he rebounded to rank second in the NFL in touchdown catches (12) this season behind only teammate Jordy Nelson (14). Per the Journal-Sentinel, Adams "is going to have to prove he can be an effective player in order to be cleared" for the NFC Championship Game. The Packers have ruled out Adams from this week's practices. He needs to practice on Saturday and look competent doing it in order to get the Week 20 green light.
Jan 18 - 9:06 PM

Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

"I'm curious to see him move," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I don't think he'll practice until Saturday." Adams hurt his ankle late in the Divisional Round win over the Cowboys and had to be helped to the sideline before returning. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) also sidelined, losing Adams would be a huge blow to Green Bay. If both sit, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Jeff Janis, Jared Cook, and Richard Rodgers would make up Aaron Rodgers' pass-game arsenal.
Jan 18 - 2:49 PM

Davante Adams supplied five catches for 76 yard on 10 targets Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Adams nearly scored a touchdown in the second quarter but was forced out at the one-yard line. He rolled his left ankle after a 16-yard catch in the fourth quarter but returned after getting taped up. Adams matched up with Brandon Carr and played him to a draw. The talented third-year wideout has been heavily involved with Jordy Nelson hurt the last two weeks, snagging 13-of-22 targets for 201 yards and one touchdown in that span. Adams will draw the Falcons in next week’s NFC Championship game.
Jan 15 - 9:35 PM

Davante Adams caught 6-of-9 passes for 31 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 17 win over Detroit.

Adams was held to one catch in the first half. He had a three-yard touchdown on the Packers’ opening drive of the third quarter and later sealed the game on a second red-zone score. Adams has been one of this year’s biggest breakouts after a sophomore slump. He’ll take a 75/997/12 line into the postseason.
Jan 2 - 12:17 AM

Davante Adams caught 4-of-7 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

Adams' touchdown was a thing of beauty, as he smoked Trae Waynes 1-on-1 in the end zone. What fantasy owners may remember more, however, was Adams dropping his third perfectly thrown touchdown ball in the past two weeks. Adams enters Week 17 with 10 touchdowns, and 34 yards shy of 1,000.

Davante Adams caught 2-of-6 targets for 25 yards in the Packers' Week 15 win over the Bears.

It was a brutal day for Adams, who dropped not one, but two wide-open touchdowns in the end zone. Both muffs were completely inexcusable. They were softly delivered, perfect strikes from Aaron Rodgers. Adams simply didn't catch them. Seemingly alternating big games and letdowns, Adams has a tough Week 16 matchup with the Vikings.

Davante Adams caught 4-of-6 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Coming off a disappointing performance against the Texans, Adams got right into the action this week, beating Jeremy Lane on an out-and-up for a 66-yard score on the third play of the game. He also easily beat DeShawn Shead off the line on a couple occasions in the second quarter, and Rodgers hit him for a 26-yard gain on one of the plays. With Rodgers playing like a man possessed, Adams has established himself as a weekly WR2. He will be a must-start next week against the Bears.
