Player Outlook
Adams built arguably the best QB-WR rapport in the last five years with Aaron Rodgers as they constantly connected on back-shoulder throws that felt unstoppable, but those days are over after his trade to Las Vegas. The good news is that Adams reunites with his college quarterback Derek Carr. Adams was one of three players to average double-digit targets in 2021, but in addition to losing Rodgers, he'll also have to learn a new offense and he'll have a lot more competition for targets with the Raiders. Despite the change in scenery, the NFL's best route runner remains a back-end first-round pick and figures to be the fourth WR off the board in most leagues.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Sits out Thursday

    Adams didn't play in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game win versus the Jaguars, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports. The Raiders' massive offseason trade acquisition, Adams was merely a spectator in his first chance to take the field for the team in an actual game. He'll have up to three more opportunities to do so, starting Sunday, Aug. 14 against the Vikings. Once he does, Adams likely will be on the receiving end of passes from former college teammate Derek Carr.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Could be rested Thursday

    Though Vic Tafur of The Athletic suggests that coach Josh McDaniels seems unlikely to share which of his players will face the Jaguars in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game, he suggests that QB Derek Carr and other key starters (which describes Adams) will end up being spectators. If Adams doesn't see any snaps Thursday or alternatively ends up making a cameo, he'll have three more chances to get a portion of preseason reps. In any case, as long as Adams avoids any injury issues ahead of Week 1, the Raiders' splashy offseason trade acquisition is poised to see plenty of targets in 2022 from QB Derek Carr, his former college quarterback at Fresno State.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Dealt to Vegas

    The Packers traded Adams to the Raiders for two draft picks in the 2022 NFL Draft on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. A week and a half removed from receiving the franchise tag from the Packers, Adams suddenly finds himself on the move. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Adams will sign a new contract with the Raiders for five years, $141.25 million as he reunites with Derek Carr, his college quarterback at Fresno State. Adams is coming off a six-year stretch in which he surpassed 1,000 yards receiving three times and hit double-digit touchdowns on five occasions. As for the Packers, they'll receive Las Vegas' 2022 first- and second-round picks as compensation, per Schefter.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Tells team he won't play under tag

    Adams has informed the Packers he won't play on the franchise tag, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Packers tagged Adams last week, as expected, keeping the star wideout under team control alongside QB Aaron Rodgers. The team has a difficult cap situation and apparently hasn't made much early progress in long-term discussions with Adams, but the two sides still have four months to reach an agreement before the July 15 extension deadline for franchise-tagged players.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Gets franchise tag, as expected

    The Packers placed the franchise tag on Adams on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Green Bay now has addressed two of its biggest question marks of the offseason in the matter of hours, keeping Adams in the fold following Aaron Rodgers' decision to return for an 18th season. Adams has strung together six consecutive campaigns with at least 117 targets, a stretch in which he's averaged 97 catches for 1,199 yards and 11.5 touchdowns per season. The Packers and his representatives will now attempt to work out a long-term extension so the club can avoid being on the hook for the full cap hit on his $18.4 million franchise tender in 2022.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Co-leads team in catches

    Adams secured nine of 11 targets for 90 yards during the Packers' 13-10 divisional-round loss to the 49ers on Saturday night. Adams drew even with Aaron Jones for the team lead in receptions while pacing the team in targets. The standout receiver was particularly productive early, recording the game's first catch (14 yards), adding 10- and 11-yard receptions on that opening drive, and contributing another pair of grabs for 15 yards before halftime. The abrupt and disappointing finish to the Packers' season doesn't take away from Adams' eye-popping accomplishments this past regular season, one that saw him produce a franchise-record 1,553 receiving yards on 123 receptions, figures he complemented with 11 touchdowns.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Secures team record

    Adams caught six passes for 55 yards on seven targets against Detroit on Sunday. Adams could have done much more if he and Aaron Rodgers had played the entire game, but the main reason for Adams playing at all was arguably to get him the Green Bay single-season receiving yardage record, which he successfully secured with this box score. Adams finishes the regular season with 123 receptions for 1,553 yards (beating Jordy Nelson's 1,519 from 2014) and 11 touchdowns in 16 games, and now he'll prepare for Green Bay's playoff run.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Goes off vs. MIN

    Adams hauled in 11 of 14 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-10 win over Minnesota. The proven Aaron Rodgers to Adams connection was met with little resistance by the Vikings for the second time this season (the star receiver notched a 7-115-2 line versus Minnesota back in Week 11). Adams accrued most of his stats in just one half of football, as Green Bay blew out its division rival with ease. Lots of fantasy championships took place this weekend, so Adams gave his managers a huge boost in what might end up being his last regular-season appearance this season after the Packers locked up the first seed in the NFC and a first-round bye. Look for updates from head coach Matt LaFleur this week on whether Adams will be rested heading into a meaningless matchup -- in terms of playoff seeding -- against the Lions next Sunday.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Trademark performance in win

    Adams brought in 10 of 13 targets for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' 24-22 win over the Browns on Saturday. Adams delivered one of his marquee efforts in the narrow victory, with his nine- and one-yard touchdown grabs in the first half the icing on the cake of his fourth 100-yard effort in the last five games. The multi-time Pro Bowler now has four double-digit catch tallies as well for the season and boasts a pair of 13-target games in the last three weeks. Adams next faces a Vikings team in Week 17 that he generated a 7-115-2 line against back in Week 11 on the road.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Low yardage but scores

    Adams caught six of seven targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-30 win over the Ravens. Adams shook his defender before hauling in a three-yard touchdown during the second quarter, surprisingly giving him a score in consecutive games for just the first time this season. That contribution helped compensate for otherwise underwhelming totals by Adams' lofty standards, as his 44 yards marked his second-lowest tally this term. Coming off three straight 100-yard outings, Adams came back to earth a bit Sunday, but the star nonetheless remains a top receiving option ahead of Week 16's matchup versus the Browns.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Goes off for two scores

    Adams (hamstring) hauled in 10 of 13 targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 45-30 win over the Bears. Adams was dealing with a bum hamstring during practice this week, and he was quiet out of the gates in this one. The superstar wideout could be held back only for so long, as he and Aaron Rodgers dominated the Bears' defense from the second quarter onward. Adams has now produced three straight 100-plus yard games while scoring four touchdowns over that span. He will attempt to stretch that streak to four games against the Ravens in Week 15.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Logs another limited practice

    Adams (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday. Adams has opened Week 14 prep with back-to-back capped sessions, the result of a hamstring issue. With Randall Cobb expected to miss significant time due to a core muscle injury, the Packers' receiving corps again has lost one of its members. Having said that, Adams doesn't seem to be in danger of missing any game action, which may be confirmed on Friday's practice report.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Dealing with hamstring issue

    Adams was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Even with the benefit of the Packers' bye week, Adams made an appearance on the first Week 14 injury report. Fortunately for the wide receiver, he was able to fit in some activity, while fellow wideout Randall Cobb (core) didn't. Adams will look to get back to full activity Thursday and/or Friday with the aim of heading into Sunday's divisional matchup with the Bears without a designation.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Tops 100 yards

    Adams recorded eight receptions on nine targets for 104 yards in Sunday's 36-28 win over the Rams. Adams didn't dominate targets in his typical fashion, as Marquez Valdes-Scantling saw nine targets and Allen Lazard six. Even so, Adams topped 100 receiving yards for the fifth time this season and for the second consecutive game. Adams did the majority of his damage on a 43-yard reception late in the second quarter, and he came just shy of finding the end zone after being pushing out of bounds at the 11 yard line. With this performance, Adams has now recorded at least six catches in all but one of his 11 contests on the campaign.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Logs all activity Thursday

    Adams (ankle) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's injury report, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. After dealing with a shoulder issue in practice last week, Adams opened Week 12 with a cap on his reps due to an ankle injury, which clearly wasn't serious after he managed all activity Thursday. When he last faced Sunday's opponent, the Rams, Adams hauled in nine of 10 targets for 66 yards and one touchdown in the divisional round back in January.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Returns to elite form

    Adams (shoulder) corralled seven of eight targets for 115 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-31 loss to Minnesota. Adams was battling a shoulder injury throughout practice this week, but he showed no ill effects in a dominant showing on the gridiron. The 28-year-old was coming off of a pair of pedestrian performances -- by his lofty standards -- during a period where both he and Aaron Rodgers missed time due to illness, but Green Bay's dynamic duo appeared to get its mojo back. Adams will face a stiff test against shutdown corner Jalen Ramsey and the Rams in a rematch of last year's NFC divisional round next Sunday.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Full practice Thursday

    Adams (shoulder) practice fully Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Adams was deemed limited on Wednesday's practice estimate after he was seen stretching and riding a stationary bike prior to a walkthrough. On Thursday, he proceeded to work in individual drills in the media-access portion of the session, per Schneidman. With all activity confirmed in the Packers' most recent practice, Adams is ready to take on the Vikings in Week 11. At the same time, Aaron Rodgers (toe) has yet to get on the field this week, but there's an expectation he'll be throwing to Adams and company Sunday at Minnesota.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Logs limited practice

    Adams was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through practice due to a shoulder injury, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Adams was among a number of Green Bay veterans to have practice limitations to kick off Week 11 prep, including non-participants Aaron Rodgers (toe), Allen Lazard (shoulder) and David Bakhtiari (knee). Because Wednesday's report was an estimate, Adams' ability to stretch out and ride a stationary bike may have been enough for him to receive the "limited" tag. In any case, the health of least Adams and Rodgers really isn't in question, which would be confirmed by both players returning to a full session by week's end.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Present but not practicing

    Adams wasn't taking part in the part of Wednesday's walk-through practice that was open to the media, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Instead, Adams stretched out and was riding a stationary bike. Considering his veteran status, Adams could be receiving the day off, but his listing on Wednesday's practice report will indicate whether or not he's dealing with a health concern.

  • Packers' Davante Adams: Solid showing

    Adams caught seven passes for 78 yards on 11 targets against Seattle on Sunday. Adams could have done more against this vulnerable secondary, but the Packers seemed just a tad disjointed as Aaron Rodgers made his return from a one-game COVID absence. Rodgers and especially Adams should become more dangerous as the rust shakes off, and it might be Week 11 opponent Minnesota who bears the brunt of that.
