Adams was targeted 10 times in Sunday's loss to the Falcons and caught eight passes for 99 yards and a touchdown. Adams caught just three passes in the Packers' season opener, but he was far more active in Week 2, helping fill the void for the injured Jordy Nelson (quad). Adams will play a key role in the Packers' passing game regardless of Nelson's status, but if Nelson misses more time moving forward, Adams could see double-digit targets on a more frequent basis.
Adams caught three of seven targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Seahawks. Adams spent a lot of time matched up with Richard Sheman, which helped Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson to have productive days. Week 2 could bring another tough individual matchup, depending on how the Falcons deploy top cornerback Desmond Trufant. Regardless, there's always ample potential to at least score a touchdown while playing alongside Aaron Rodgers.
Adams caught one pass for six yards in Saturday's preseason victory over the Redskins. Adams played sparingly Saturday, but he got in his first game action of the season with starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and made it through another contest healthy. Adams is currently listed as the No. 3 wideout on the Packers' depth chart, but Green Bay often runs three-receiver sets. Therefore, given Adams' nose for the end zone, he's presumably ahead of No. 2 Randall Cobb for fantasy purposes.
Adams caught two of three targets for 26 yards in Thursday's preseason opener against the Eagles. Adams moved the sticks with an 18-yard catch during the first quarter, but his involvement was understandably limited to three series to start off the exhibition slate.
Adams enjoyed a healthy offseason and is embracing more of a leadership role, Wes Hodkiewicz of Packers.com reports. Adams was severely limited by an ankle injury in the NFC championship game, drawing only three targets while playing 40 percent of the offensive snaps. Unlike his knee injury the previous year, the ankle issue didn't linger into the offseason and impact his preparation in the spring. With his role secure and his body in tip-top shape, Adams is targeting the 1,000-yard mark after falling just three yards shy last season. While unlikely to convert 16 percent of his catches into touchdowns again, the 24-year-old could offset the rate decrease with a bump in overall volume if he continues on the positive development track.
