Davante Adams says there are no lingering effects from his two 2017 concussions.
Adams sat out Weeks 16 and 17 after being concussed by Thomas Davis in Week 15, but his agent said he could have appeared in "at least" one of those games. Adams has suffered three concussions since the beginning of the 2016 season, but neither he nor the Packers — who gave Adams a four-year, $58 million extension on Dec. 29 — seem concerned.

Packers signed WR Davante Adams to a four-year, $58 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes an $18 million signing bonus, while the $14.5 million annual average makes Adams the NFL's fourth-highest paid wide receiver behind only Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, and A.J. Green. Adams was headed for free agency, so this is a nice keep for the Packers. Despite missing three games to injury and playing with Brett Hundley, Adams averaged 63 yards per game in 2017 and is tied with Jimmy Graham for the second-most touchdowns (10) in the league. After a rough start to his career, Adams has developed into an elite run-after-catch and red-zone receiver. Adams turned 25 less than a week ago, so there's still room for growth.

Daante Adams (concussion) is out for Week 17 against the Lions.

Jordy Nelson (shoulder) is also out. The Packers will roll with Randall Cobb in the slot flanked by Geronimo Allison and Michael Clark. Jeff Janis may even get some reps. Adams is scheduled to be a free agent in March.

Davante Adams (concussion) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Adams hasn't played or practiced since suffering a concussion in Week 15. That was his second concussion of the year. He's not expected to play against Detroit in Week 17. The impending free agent is tied with Jimmy Graham for second in the league with 10 touchdown receptions.

Davante Adams remains in the league's concussion protocol.

With Adams and Jordy Nelson (shoulder) looking unlikely to play this week in the finale, it may come down to Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, and Michael Clark at receiver for Brett Hundley. Adams is scheduled to become a free agent.
Wed, Dec 27, 2017 01:00:00 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Vikings.

Green Bay will now be without both Aaron Rodgers and Adams, who has been Brett Hundley's clear No. 1 option this season. With Adams out, Jordy Nelson should see a lot of Xavier Rhodes, making him basically unplayable, and neither Randall Cobb nor Geronimo Allison is in a great spot either. This looks like a passing game to avoid.

Davante Adams (concussion) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Adams is still in the protocol. Coach Mike McCarthy said Adams is "pissed off" after the illegal Thomas Davis hit that concussed him, and Adams wants to play again this season. He has 24 touchdowns the last two years.
Wed, Dec 20, 2017 02:02:00 PM

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

Adams suffered a concussion Sunday after being blown up by Panthers LB Thomas Davis, who was suspended two games for the illegal hit. With Green Bay eliminated from the postseason, the Packers may be tempted to shut Adams down. If he sits against the Vikings on Saturday, it would open up targets for Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 04:29:00 PM

Davante Adams suffered a concussion in Green Bay's Week 15 game against the Panthers and is week to week.

Adams was blown up on a vicious, illegal peel-back "block" by Thomas Davis. Davis will almost certainly be suspended for Week 16. It's particularly awful news for Adams, who has a history of concussions. He could be staring at a multi-week absence.

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.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 04:50:00 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.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 04:51:00 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.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 12:26:00 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.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 04:37:00 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.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 04:30:00 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.
