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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 07:55:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 01:21:00 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.
