Davante Adams Fantasy Football News 2019

The Packers have hired Matt LaFleur as their new HC. The 39-year-old was a hot name as an OC candidate around this time last year after working under Sean McVay in Los Angeles in 2017. LaFleur's 1 season in Tennessee was underwhelming on paper, with the Titans finishing 25th in total yards and 27th in points. But he was dealt a bad hand at QB between an injured Marcus Mariota and Blaine Gabbert. That likely also played a part in Tennessee being the 2nd run-heaviest offense in the league and 10th slowest in situation-neutral pace. Hopefully LaFleur brings a more aggressive, up-tempo attack to Green Bay. Consider the hire a risk/reward proposition for Aaron Rodgers and Co.

Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) is inactive for today’s finale against the Lions. WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is also inactive. That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow as Green Bay’s outside receivers, with Randall Cobb in the slot.

Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He didn’t practice all week. Green Bay obviously has nothing to play for, but Adams needs 134 yards to break Jordy Nelson’s team record for single-season receiving yards. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. WR Randall Cobb (concussion), meanwhile, will return for Sunday’s finale. WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is listed as doubtful.

Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played 96% of the offensive snaps last week and seemed to come out of the game fine. We're tentatively expecting Adams to play against the Lions this weekend, but check back tomorrow for another update.

The Packers have fired HC Mike McCarthy. It ends a 13-year stint in Green Bay. The team has underachieved recently, though -- especially considering they're quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers. Today's home loss to the Cardinals was the nail in the coffin. Joe Philbin will take over the interim HC. The move is unlikely to have a significant fantasy impact.

The forecast for today's Cardinals-Packers game calls for a 100% chance of snow and winds of 20-30 mph. Those are tough conditions for the passing games -- especially the Cardinals, who play their home games indoors. QB Josh Rosen shouldn't have been in your plans anyway, but WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk are shakier plays now. Aaron Rodgers looks like a lower-end QB1 in this spot. RB Aaron Jones and the Packers defense are elite fantasy plays.

The Packers have placed WR Geronimo Allison on IR with his core muscle injury. He's not eligible to return until the postseason and can be dropped from all redraft rosters. Green Bay will move forward with Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Randall Cobb and Equanimeous St. Brown as its top 4 WRs. Adams will continue to dominate targets, while Valdes-Scantling and Cobb are WR3 options.

Packers WR Davante Adams (calf) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He comes with a bit more risk than usual after hurting his calf on Wednesday but still belongs in season-long lineups. WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, hamstring) is inactive, leaving Marquez Valdes-Scantling as the #2 WR. The rookie has some upside as a WR4 or flex.

Packers WR Davante Adams is expected to play Sunday despite a calf strain that has him questionable, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Adams missed practice Thursday but returned to limited workouts Friday and Saturday. He'll carry some risk into a game that should also find him primarily locked up with CB Darius Slay in coverage.

Packers WR Davante Adams (calf) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after injuring his calf on Wednesday and sitting out Thursday. We’ll continue to look for updates on Adams and will find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Packers WR Davante Adams (calf) will practice on Saturday, HC Mike McCarthy said. That presumably gives Adams a shot to play against the Lions this weekend. We'll continue to monitor his progress and will get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Packers WR Davante Adams suffered a calf injury on Wednesday and will not practice on Thursday, HC Mike McCarthy announced. Ouch. WRs Geronimo Allison (concussion) and Randall Cobb (hamstring) are already in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Lions. Now Adams looks iffy too. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Brown are the team's top 3 healthy WRs right now.

11:09am EDT 9/30/18

Packers WR Randall Cobb (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. That leaves Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay’s top 2 WRs — and nice fantasy plays. Rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling figures to serve as the #3.
