Updating an earlier item, Davante Adams was limited in Thursday's practice with a heel issue.
Earlier reports pegged Adams as "DNP." According to coach Mike McCarthy, Adams got "stepped on" in Wednesday's session. It's a good sign Adams got in some reps on Thursday, but his Friday status will be all important for his Week 13 availability. Nov 27 - 1:24 PM

Davante Adams (undisclosed) is not practicing Thursday.

Reporters covering the Packers don't know what's wrong with Adams yet, but mid-week downgrades are typically a red flag. He could be needed Sunday if Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb have trouble against Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner.
Nov 27 - 11:58 AM

Davante Adams was held to one catch for 10 yards in Week 12.

He was targeted four times. Adams remains the No. 3 option in the Packers' offense, but didn't get any red-zone looks. He'll be a touchdown-dependent WR4 against the Patriots in Week 13.
Nov 23 - 5:42 PM

Davante Adams caught two passes for 13 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 blowout of the Eagles.

The Packers went back to "11," or a three-wide formation as their base this week. That led to chances for Davante Adams against the Eagles' weak corners, a matchup he'll always win. The second-round rookie did just that on a pretty slant route for a 6-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter, nicely shaking loose of Bradley Fletcher. Unfortunately, Adams will remain the third option in the pass game, giving him week-to-week inconsistency. He'll be a WR4 against the Vikings in Week 12. Adams was only targeted on two of Aaron Rodgers' 36 passes Sunday.
Nov 16 - 7:49 PM

Davante Adams played 38-of-67 snaps in the Packers' Week 10 win over the Bears.

The 56.7 percent snap rate was Adams' lowest since Week 2, and a big surprise after he played 96 percent in Green Bay's previous game. Ordinarily a base-three receiver offense, the Packers attacked the Bears with two-tight end sets. Brandon Bostick and Andrew Quarless each scored a touchdown, while Adams was left out to dry, managing one catch for ten yards on two targets. With unpredictable usage, Adams can be viewed as no more than a WR4/flex going forward.
Nov 10 - 4:56 PM

Davante Adams was held to one catch for 10 yards in Sunday night's win over the Bears.

Adams wasn't able to get involved with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb going off against the Bears secondary. He had at least 70 yards or a touchdown in his last four games coming into Week 10. Adams is still worth keeping rostered in the majority of leagues. The Packers have a matchup with Eagles next week.
Nov 10 - 12:43 AM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky believes WR Davante Adams will become more involved down the stretch.

Adams has an eight and a nine target game over the Packers' last three, and out-snapped Jarrett Boykin 68-to-8 against the Saints before the bye. He is the clear No. 3 receiver in Green Bay, and would develop into a must-start fantasy option if anything happened to Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb. He needs to be owned in all leagues.
Nov 8 - 10:42 AM

Davante Adams played on 68-of-71 snaps in Sunday night's loss at New Orleans.

There's no competition between Adams and Jarrett Boykin (eight snaps) anymore. The second-round rookie has impressively seized the No. 3 gig, racking up 14 catches and two touchdowns in his last four games. Adams will be a WR3 candidate when the Packers come out of their bye against the Bears in Week 10.
Oct 27 - 10:49 AM

Davante Adams caught seven catches for 75 yards in Sunday night's Week 8 loss to the Saints.

He was targeted a team-high nine times. Adams has established himself as the Packers' No. 3 receiver, and plays the outside in all three-wide sets. He has at least 70 yards or a touchdown in four straight games, and could see his role increased coming out of Green Bay's Week 9 bye. Adams would have plug-and-play WR2 value if one of the Packers' top two receivers were to go down.
Oct 27 - 1:10 AM

Davante Adams caught his lone target for a 21-yard touchdown in Green Bay's Week 7 win over the Panthers.

The one-look day was disappointing, but Adams remained firmly ahead of Jarrett Boykin, who wasn't targeted in his return from a groin injury. Adams' score was a third-quarter grab he caught along the right hash before cutting through the teeth of the defense en route to the end zone. Adams has obvious home-run potential, but his inconsistent usage makes him a boom-or-bust WR4 for fantasy purposes.
Oct 19 - 6:05 PM

Davante Adams caught six passes for 77 yards in Sunday's Week 6 win at Miami.

With Jarrett Boykin (groin) still sidelined, Adams showed well again. Aaron Rodgers' first two targets of the game went to the second-round rookie and he also showed chemistry on a critical fake-spike play deep in the fourth quarter. Over the last two weeks, Adams has seven catches for 88 yards and one touchdown on 12 targets. He'll be a WR3 option against the Panthers in Week 8 as long as Boykin sits.
Oct 12 - 4:30 PM

Aaron Rodgers says he's noticed rookie Davante Adams creating separation when reviewing the Packers' games on tape.

Adams hasn't quite had a breakthrough game yet, but it's coming. "Davante, he’s open on film a lot," Rodgers said. "He’s run a lot of good routes. He only had one catch last week, but if he stays confident and keeps making plays like he’s doing in practice, the ball is going to keep coming his way." Adams is still a boom-or-bust WR3, but could leap to WR2 status quickly if Rodgers begins trusting him more. Over the last two weeks, Adams has played 74 percent of Green Bay's offensive snaps. Jarrett Boykin (groin/knee) is considered "highly unlikely" to play Sunday against the Dolphins.
Oct 8 - 11:12 PM

Davante Adams caught one pass for 11 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's Week 5 win over the Vikings.

Adams was the full-time No. 3 receiver with Jarrett Boykin sidelined. He wasn't on the same page with Aaron Rodgers for most of the first half, securing just one of his four targets. His touchdown came on an 11-yard slant route against Josh Robinson. Adams should continue to start in three-wide sets in Week 6 against Miami, but will remain just a WR4.
Oct 3 - 12:18 AM

Davante Adams caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win at Chicago.

Adams played better than his box scores looks as he soaked up all the No. 3 WR duties. He had a 34-yard touchdown called back by a holding penalty and also got targeted on a red-zone bubble screen. Unfortunately, the Packers ran more "12" packages than they usually do, possibly because Jarrett Boykin (knee) was inactive. Adams remains a hold as he'll have better days if Boykin remains sidelined. The Packers are now on a short week as they face the Vikings Thursday night.
Sep 28 - 5:25 PM

Davante Adams will be the Packers' No. 3 wideout in Sunday's game against the Bears.

It's a monster opportunity for Adams, a physical and polished rookie who was Derek Carr's go-to guy at Fresno State last season. He'll play on roughly 70 percent of the snaps against a banged up and bad Bears defense, putting him squarely on the WR3 radar. Intriguing prospect Jeff Janis will be the No. 4 wideout.
