Davante Adams (ankle) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.

The Pack are just managing Adams' reps on a short week. He'll be in the WR2/3 conversation against the Bears on Thanksgiving.
Nov 24 - 4:55 PM

Davante Adams (ankle) was listed as limited in Packers practice on Monday.

Adams has dealt with ankle issues for much of the season, but they haven't affected his availability in over a month. He'll start Thursday versus Chicago.
Nov 23 - 5:04 PM

Davante Adams caught 3-of-4 targets for 36 yards Week 11 against the Vikings.

Adams took a backseat to James Jones after seeing 21 targets last week. Adams was more efficient on the limited work despite struggling with an ankle injury most of the game. He made a good catch on the sideline in the first quarter, and he beat Terrance Newman for a 16-yard gain on the Packers’ final touchdown drive. Adams might not be very good, but he had 32 targets total in the two games before this one. He should get around eight targets each week, and that keeps him in the WR3 conversation.
Nov 22 - 7:53 PM

Davante Adams converted just 10-of-21 targets for 79 yards Week 10 against the Lions.

The Packers set out to target Adams early and often against backup corner Nevin Lawson, but he failed to separate from the reserve corner all game. He averaged just 7.9 yards a catch and an anemic 3.76 yards a target against what had been one of the worst pass defenses in the league. To top off the terrible day, Adams dropped what would have been the game-tying two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter. Aaron Rodgers was not perfect in this game, but Adams has consistently failed to make the most of his opportunities and now has a 56.5-percent career catch rate playing with one of the most accurate quarterbacks in league history. He will remain a WR3 based on volume alone, but the Packers need an upgrade this offseason.
Nov 15 - 5:45 PM

Davante Adams caught 7-of-11 targets for 93 yards in Green Bay's Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

Adams also caught a two-point conversion. Both the grabs and yards were easily new season highs for a wideout who has spent the majority of the year injured. Adams is stuck in a timeshare with James Jones behind Randall Cobb, but could eventually offer steady WR3 value. The Packers need his playmaking ability as a YAC wideout. Adams has a mouthwatering Week 10 matchup in the Lions, who silver platter big plays on the reg'.
Nov 8 - 6:10 PM

Davante Adams was held to one catch for eight yards on two targets in Sunday night's loss to the Broncos.

Adams started in two-wide sets over James Jones. He played every snap opposite Randall Cobb and didn't look limited in his return from an ankle injury. The entire Packers offense was shut down by Denver's secondary. Adams should have a bigger role in Week 9 against the Panthers.
Nov 2 - 12:49 AM

Davante Adams (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 8.

His practice participation went from limited on Wednesday and Thursday to "full" on Friday. As Ty Montgomery (ankle) did not practice at all this week, Adams will be all systems go as Green Bay's third receiver against Denver.
Oct 30 - 4:07 PM

Davante Adams (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

He's been limited all week coming off Green Bay's bye. The plan is still for him to suit up Sunday against Denver. Adams is a distant third for targets behind starters Randall Cobb and James Jones.
Oct 29 - 4:25 PM

Davante Adams (ankle) returned to Packers practice on Monday.

Adams is on track to return for Week 8 against the Broncos, where he'll be a low-end WR3 option in fantasy leagues behind Randall Cobb and James Jones.
Oct 26 - 5:14 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy expects Davante Adams (ankle) to be ready for Week 8.

Adams sat Weeks 4-6 before getting the Packers' bye week to heal up. He practiced on Monday. Adams began the year as the Pack's No. 2 wideout, but will return as the No. 3 with James Jones continuing to bail out McCarthy's offense. It's possible Adams could even lose some snaps to Ty Montgomery, though his upside remains appealing in Aaron Rodgers' offense. Adams should remain rostered in 12-team leagues.
Oct 26 - 1:30 PM

Davante Adams (ankle) is inactive for Week 6 against the Chargers.

Adams hasn't played since Week 3 when he aggravated a preexisting ankle injury. Ty Montgomery will continue to be a near-every down player as the No. 3 receiver. Also inactive for the Packers are QB Brett Hundley, S Morgan Burnett (calf), RB Alonzo Harris, OLB Nick Perry, OG Lane Taylor, and NT B.J. Raji.
Oct 18 - 2:58 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Davante Adams (ankle, questionable) is not expected to play Sunday against the Chargers.

Adams' sprained ankle is improving but he's not ready for game action yet. According to Rapsheet, the feeling around Green Bay is that Adams will return after the team's upcoming bye week. Randall Cobb and James Jones will again be Aaron Rodgers' featured receivers while tight end Richard Rodgers makes for a sneaky upside play, particularly in DFS where his price is relatively cheap.
Oct 18 - 8:47 AM

Davante Adams (ankle, questionable) admitted Friday that he's "not sure" he'll play Sunday versus San Diego.

Players who truly intend to play are usually more optimistic than Adams sounded following Friday's session, where he was "limited" for the third straight day. Adams plans to take part in Saturday's "light" walkthrough, but cautioned that doesn't mean he'll be out there against the Bolts. "It doesn't guarantee (I'll play) but we're getting there," he said. "At the very least I'll be set to go after the bye, but I'm not sure about this week." The Packers have a bye in Week 7.
Oct 16 - 4:13 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said WR Davante Adams (ankle) will do more in practice on Thursday.

Adams was very limited in practice on Wednesday. He remained officially "limited" on Thursday. How his ankle responds to the increased activity will likely determine his availability for Sunday. Adams has said he plans to be "smart" with the ankle. Considering the Packers are 10.5-point favorites at home and have a bye next week, the "smart" thing could be for Adams to rest another week.
