Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. So he's made some progress through the protocol but still has multiple stages to clear in order to play vs. the Chargers. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He has a long way to go to be cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. QB Brian Hoyer is expected to start if Garoppolo can't. That'd be a significant downgrade for Vegas' pass-catchers.

Raiders WR Davante Adams hauled in 13 of 20 targets for 172 yards and 2 TDs in Week 3 vs. the Steelers. Teammate Jakobi Meyers saw major involvement in his return from a concussion, logging 7 catches on 12 targets for 85 yards in Sunday night’s loss. These performances certainly benefited fantasy managers this weekend, particularly the 42.2 PPR point effort from Adams. The Vegas duo will look to deliver again in Week 4 vs. the Chargers.

Raiders WR Davante Adams is not listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He was on there on Wednesday, but it looks like he was never diagnosed with a concussion. Regardless, Adams will be ready to rock vs. the Steelers on Sunday night.

Raiders WR Davante Adams was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's listed on the injury report, "Gameday concussion protocol evaluation." We've never seen that before. Regardless, Adams is on track to play vs. the Steelers this weekend.

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels deemed WR Davante Adams "good" on Monday, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Adams left Sunday's loss to Buffalo late for a concussion check after a big hit. But he clearly passed the testing. Symptoms sometimes surface a couple of days after the injury, and we'll certainly be watching for any further updates. But Adams should be ready for Week 3.

Raiders WR Davante Adams took a shot to the head in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Bills. He went into the blue medical tent and then back to the locker room, presumably to be checked for a concussion. We'll update Adams' status when we know more.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (foot) is not listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after taking Wednesday off. Adams should be at his usual target-hogging ways vs. the Bills this weekend.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's not going to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Bills. Meyers' absence figures to mean an even heavier reliance on WR Davante Adams in Buffalo.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (foot) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll be ready to rock on Sunday vs. the Bills. Adams figures to be leaned on even more heavily than usual with WR Jakobi Meyers likely out with his concussion.

Raiders WR Davante Adams (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. The Athletic's Vic Tafur tweeted that Adams appeared to be fine, so it looks like this was more of a rest day for the 30-year-old. We'll see if Adams gets back on the field tomorrow.

Raiders WR Davante Adams was relatively quiet in Sunday's season-opening win over the Broncos, catching six balls for 66 scoreless yards. He dealt with tough coverage from All-Pro CB Patrick Surtain for much of the contest. The good news is that Adams drew nine targets -- a big 34.6% share on a day when QB Jimmy Garoppolo threw it just 26 times. Adams won't have many tougher matchups than this one going forward. And he'll remain a fantasy WR1 if he continues to see that type of volume.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo "was up-and-down early in camp but has been impressive of late," ESPN's Paul Gutierrez writes. Garoppolo also looked good in his 2023 preseason debut on Saturday night, completing all four of his passes for 39 yards on a 68-yard TD drive. He's still not an exciting fantasy option, but the improved play is good news for Vegas pass-catchers.

Raiders WR Davante Adams is "trending in the right direction" after going down with a lower-leg injury on August 11, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. "Should be on the practice field soon, depending how Las Vegas wants to manage him," Fowler adds. It doesn't sound like Adams is in any danger of missing the start of the regular season, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on his status.

Update: HC Josh McDaniels says Adams is returning to practice Wednesday, per Tashan Reed of The Athletic.

Raiders WR Davante Adams left Friday's joint practice with the 49ers with a lower right leg injury. A source tells The Athletic's Tashan Reed that Adams' injury is "minor." We'll keep you updated on his status, but we aren't moving Adams in the WR rankings now.

WR Davante Adams' usage changed considerably in his first year with the Raiders. He was mostly a short-range target in his final three seasons in Green Bay, registering average target depths of 10.0, 8.9, and 9.6 yards. He caught 71.2% of those targets and averaged 12.2 yards per catch. In Vegas last year, Adams posted an 11.8-yard average target depth. As a result, his catch rate sunk to 55.6%, but he set a career high with 15.2 yards per catch. Adams’ 8.4 yards per target last year was down a bit from his 8.8 yards over those final three seasons with the Packers. But it still ranked 30th among 85 WRs with 50+ targets. The concern heading into 2023 is that new starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo has never ranked better than 16th in Pro Football Focus' deep passing grade. So Adams' efficiency could suffer if he continues working downfield as much as he did last season. We'll keep a close eye on the situation throughout the summer.

Raiders QB Derek Carr went just 16 of 30 passing for 174 yards in Saturday night's loss to the Steelers. He threw just 1 TD pass -- to WR Hunter Renfrow -- and 3 INTs while taking 3 sacks. WR Davante Adams managed only 2 receptions for 15 yards on a team-high 9 targets. TE Darren Waller led Vegas with 58 receiving yards on 4 catches. Renfrow matched him with 4 receptions for 42 yards. The Raiders head back home to face a difficult 49ers defense in Week 17.

Raiders QB Derek Carr threw for a modest 231 yards in Sunday's win over the Patriots but also tallied 3 TDs. He found WR Mack Hollins, TE Darren Waller and WR Keenan Cole for scores. Waller caught all 3 of his targets for 48 yards in his 1st game since Week 5. Hollins tied WR Davante Adams for the team lead with just 4 receptions. Adams (9) and Hollins (8) were the only 2 Raiders to draw more than 3 targets. Week 16 brings a matchup with Pittsburgh, which hit Sunday as a near-neutral scoring matchup for QBs.

Raiders WR Davante Adams delivered an 8-177-2 receiving line in Sunday's win over the Chargers. Those numbers accounted for 40% of Raiders targets, 50% of completions, 71% of the receiving yards and 67% of the offense's total TDs. WR Mack Hollins checked in as the 2nd-leading receiver with 5-35 on 9 targets. RB Josh Jacobs (2) and TE Foster Moreau (1) claimed QB Derek Carr's remaining 3 completions. The Raiders now visit the Rams on Thursday night.

Raiders QB Derek Carr amassed 295 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's OT win at Seattle. He hit WR Mack Hollins (4-63 receiving), RB Ameer Abdullah (3-39) and TE Foster Moreau (3-33) for TDs. Carr also tossed a pair of INTs, but he has posted his 2 best fantasy scores of the season in his past 2 games.
