Adams recorded 13 catches on 16 targets for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the Texans. Adams dominated the Texans from start to finish, beginning his performance with a three-yard touchdown in the first quarter. His second trip to the end zone came on a 45-yard reception late in the third quarter when he broke free behind the Texans' secondary. Aside from the scores, Adams recorded receptions of 36, 28, 16 and 15 yards. It was a dominant performance for Adams, and he's now topped 150 receiving yards in two of his four games on the season. He'll face another soft secondary in a Week 8 matchup against Minnesota.
Adams caught six of 10 targets for 61 yards during Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers. Making his first appearance in nearly a month, Adams led the team in all receiving categories, though that wasn't saying much considering Aaron Rodgers managed just 160 yards on the day. Adams registered three catches on the first two drives but struggled as Rodgers' efficacy faded in the face of a ferocious defensive front, leading Adams to finish with modest numbers by his lofty standards. Adams will draw a favorable matchup against the Texans next Sunday and will look to bounce back in a big way after a rare subpar performance.
Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed Friday that Adams will return for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Adams thought he was healthy enough to play Week 4, but the Packers medical staff wanted him to rest his hamstring a little longer before the team had its bye Week 5. He now should be ready for his usual hefty workload, albeit in a tricky road matchup with a Bucs defense that sometimes uses CB Carlton Davis in shadow coverage on the opponent's top receiver. Of course, the matchup really only matters for DFS, as Adams is a locked-in weekly starter for any other fantasy format.
Adams (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Adams may have been able to return for a Week 4 showdown against the Falcons, but the Packers ultimately kept him on the sideline with the hope he would be healthy following the team's bye week. Indeed, Adams handled every practice rep Wednesday, clearing him to rejoin Green Bay's offense. Adams will look to produce Sunday versus a Bucs unit that has allowed 8.1 yards per target and a 71.1 percent catch rate to wide receivers this season.
Adams (hamstring) is participating in Monday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Adams didn't suit up for Green Bay's win over the Falcons in Week 4 while tending to a lingering hamstring strain, but it looks as though he's avoided any setbacks during the team's subsequent bye. The Packers are hoping to have the star receiver at full health for Sunday's upcoming contest in Tampa Bay, but an official update on his injury may not come until Wednesday's first practice report of the week is released. With Allen Lazard (abdomen) expected to miss multiple games after undergoing core muscle surgery, a return to the lineup by Adams would provide Green Bay's aerial attack with a significant boost.
