Given a chance to really take the next step in his career in 2015, Davante Adams instead struggled and now will compete for playing time in training camp this summer with the likes of Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis. Just how disappointing was he? He had six games with at least seven targets (including one with 21!) and had 10 or more standard Fantasy points in none of them. None! Adams was one of our favorites coming out of Fresno State, but until he can provide some consistency and make some plays, Fantasy owners should think twice before taking the plunge. There is more upside with late-round receivers like Mohamed Sanu, Nelson Agholor and Jeff Janis.
While Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb continue to top the Packers' wideout depth chat, Adams is in line to jostle with the likes of Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis and draftee Trevor Davis for slotting behind the team's top duo, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. With Ed Williams and Jamel Johnson also in the depth mix, wideout is a crowded position for the Packers at this stage. The fact that Adams was a second-round draft pick in 2014 makes it likely that he'll stick around after last cuts, but either way, between the return to health of Nelson and all the competition at wideout, Adams could be hard-pressed to match the 50-catch output he turned in over 13 games in 2015.
Adams (knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Cardinals, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. Adams was considered unlikely to play after suffering an MCL injury last weekend, so Friday's news confirms he'll be unavailable Saturday. Although he struggled for most of this season, Adams' absence leaves the Packers' receiving corp a bit thin against Arizona's deep and talented secondary, but Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis are the most likely candidates to see more playing time.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Adams (knee) needs to practice Friday to have a shot at playing in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Adams will miss another practice Thursday, after suffering an MCL injury during Sunday's win over the Redskins. Although the Packers aren't officially ruling him out, there's been nothing to suggest that Adams has a real shot of playing. It thus seems Jared Abbrederis will take over as the No. 3 wide receiver, with Jeff Janis potentially also handling some snaps.
Adams (knee) won't take part in Wednesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Although Adams sidestepped a significant injury Sunday at Washington, he's tending to an MCL issue that is expected to hold him out of Saturday's matchup in Arizona. If the preceding holds up, Jared Abbrederis would benefit from the targets available due to Adams' absence.
Adams (knee) has been diagnosed with an MCL injury, making him unlikely to play in Saturday's divisional round playoff game against the Cardinals, ESPN.com reports. The extent of the injury remains unclear, but it seems likely that Adams will miss at least one game. An absence would leave Jared Abbrederis as the probable No. 3 wideout alongside Randall Cobb and James Jones, with Jeff Janis potentially also taking on some snaps.
