    Packers' Davante Adams: Has Rodgers' confidence

    Aaron Rodgers said he wants to throw to Davante Adams even more this season, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports.Adams led the NFL at 11.3 targets per game last year, with only a Week 17 absence preventing him from becoming the first player since 2015 to draw 175 or more targets in a single season. Realistically, there isn't much room for volume growth, but there is room for improved efficiency (8.2 YPT) if new coach Matt LaFleur proves to be an upgrade on Mike McCarthy. The Green Bay Packers focused their offseason personnel changes on the defensive side, relying on better coaching and renewed focus from Rodgers to lift an offense that ranked 14th in points (23.5 per game) and 12th in yards (369.1) last season. There's nothing standing between Adams and another season with double-digit targets per game.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Held out of OTAs

    Davante Adams was held out of Tuesday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.Adams is present in Green Bay but is being held out for reasons coach Matt LaFleur deemed as "precautionary." The wide receiver could be back in the fold within the next few weeks of OTAs or perhaps for mandatory minicamp in June. In any case, Adams' momentary absence creates an opportunity for the Green Bay Packers to let some of their younger wideouts distinguish themselves during an offseason in which Green Bay opted against pursuing a more high-profile No. 2 receiver.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Ready for some slot snaps

    Davante Adams expects to handle more snaps in the slot under new coach Matt LaFleur, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "(They) may not want to travel so-and-so with me inside," Adams said Wednesday. "If that will take their No. 1 off me, and I can get some mismatches maybe on the backer or the safety or anybody else, I think that is beneficial."In addition to moving around the formation more often, Adams expects the new offense to place a heavy emphasis on crossing routes, whereas Mike McCarthy's scheme relied on receivers winning one-on-one battles outside. The 26-year-old obviously did just fine in the old system, but he's yet to top 8.2 yards per target in a season, so there is some theoretical room for growth beyond last year's 111-1,386-13 receiving line in 15 games. With Randall Cobb leaving for Dallas and no replacement signed in free agency, Adams is primed for another season handling a massive target share in an Aaron Rodgers offense.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Plays in Pro Bowl

    Davante Adams (knee) caught two of four targets for 41 yards in the Pro Bowl on Sunday.Adams didn't need much time to recover from the knee injury that caused his Week 17 absence. He'll now head into the offseason healthy, locked in as the far-and-away No. 1 option in a pass-catching corps that could soon get a makeover. The 26-year-old wideout said new head coach Matt LaFleur made a great first impression, giving Adams an easy path to transition into an offense that will move him around more often and place a greater emphasis on crossing routes, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Won't play in finale

    Davante Adams (knee) is inactive Sunday against Detroit.Adams was listed as a non-participant in practice all week, though it was still thought he had a chance to play because the team technically didn't hold practice Friday. Instead, he'll end up as the latest casualty in a banged-up receiving corps that is in line to be led by Randall Cobb and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, as Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is also being held out for the regular-season finale. Adams had been in striking distance for franchise records in both receptions and receiving yards, but he'll now have to wait until the 2019 campaign to make another run at those marks.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Officially deemed questionable

    Davante Adams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.Adams was listed as a non-participant throughout the week, though Green Bay didn't actually practice Friday. Coach Joe Philbin said the team will evaluate Adams on Saturday before making a decision on the wideout's status for Week 17. The Green Bay Packers don't have any chance at a playoff appearance or even a .500 record, but Adams could make a push to play if he cares about taking a swing at the single-season team records for catches and receiving yards. Randall Cobb (concussion) and Jimmy Graham (knee/thumb) have both received the green light to play, while Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is listed as doubtful.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Week 17 decision not expected Friday

    Head coach Joe Philbin said Friday morning that the Green Bay Packers will see how Davante Adams (knee) fares on the practice field Saturday and make a decision on his Week 17 availability after that.It's not clear if Adams will get in any work Friday after sitting out the previous two days, but it looks like, regardless, a final call on his Week 17 availability will not be made for at least another day. Adams' status will be updated further after the Packers release their final injury report of the week following Friday's practice.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Works on side Thursday

    Davante Adams (knee) didn't practice Thursday and instead worked with Green Bay's training staff on the side, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Packers' official site reports.The activity is a step up from Wednesday's session, when Adams was seen on a stationary bike in the portion open to the media. It remains to be seen if he'll elevate from DNP to limited, but he seems to be taking a step toward his prediction that he'll be available Sunday versus the Lions.

    Packers' Davante Adams: Expects to play Week 17

    Davante Adams said he missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury but still expects to play Sunday against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.Adams was spotted on a stationary bike during Wednesday's practice, so he at least managed some level of physical activity. The Green Bay Packers seem determined to finish out their disappointing season on a high note, and it doesn't hurt that Adams is within striking distance of single-season franchise records for catches and receiving yards. A return to practice Thursday and/or Friday would put him on track to suit up Week 17.
