Davante Adams Fantasy Football News 2020

Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Saints. The team is seemingly hoping he makes a ton of progress over the next 48 hours, but he’s a long shot. Adams should be on fantasy benches for now. We’ll let you know if the situation changes. Adams' absence would leave Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling as Green Bay's top 2 WRs.

Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. "Doesn't look great from the feel I get," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said of Adams' chances of playing against the Saints on Sunday night. Fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere at this point. We'll see if the situation changes.

Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) was non-committal when asked Wednesday about his availability for Sunday night's game against the Saints. "It's too early to tell. It's feeling better and making good progress every day. I think we're going to wait it out and see," Adams said. "Will probably be a decision made later in the week." We'll continue to keep tabs on Adams' status.

Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) was held out of Wednesday's practice. His injury is reportedly minor -- and this might just be a case of Green Bay playing it safe with the stud receiver. But Adams shouldn't be considered a lock to play against the Saints on Sunday night. We'll get another update tomorrow.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Packers WR Davante Adams' status for Sunday night's game against the Saints is "TBD." Pelissero confirms that Adams' hamstring injury is "considered minor." We'll keep a close eye on Adams' practice participation this week. The Sunday night kickoff might complicate matters for fantasy owners. Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Tre'Quan Smith are potential fill-ins if you plan to start Adams and he ends up inactive.

Packers WR Davante Adams wanted to re-enter the game after injuring his hamstring in Week 2, HC Matt LaFleur said Monday. "I know he wanted to go back in the game, I just told him, ‘Let's see how these next few series go and see if we need you,'" LaFleur said. So this sounds like a minor hamstring injury. We'll keep an eye on Adams' practice participation this week but are tentatively expecting him to play against the Saints on Sunday night.

Packers WR Davante Adams has left their game against the Lions with a hamstring injury. The team has deemed him questionable to return.

Packers WR Devin Funchess has opted out of the 2020 season. He looked like Allen Lazard's biggest competition for the #2 WR job. Now Lazard will just need to hold off Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and Equanimeous St. Brown. We'll see how the depth chart shakes out over the next month, but we're bumping Lazard up the WR rankings. Davante Adams, of course, is set to dominate targets in Green Bay again.

The Packers had a head-scratching draft, trading up for QB Jordan Love in the 1st round and taking power-back A.J. Dillon in the 2nd. They didn't draft a single WR, despite being 1 of the neediest teams in the league at the position. GM Brian Gutekunst said it's all part of the plan to be a run-leaning offense. “I think [HC Matt LaFleur has] talked to you guys repeatedly about how much he’d like to run the ball and have the pass work off of that,” Gutekunst told reporters on Saturday. Green Bay ranked 18th in run rate last season -- and it sounds like we should project them to run it more in 2020. It's all bad news for Aaron Rodgers, who might not sit in QB1 territory when release our initial projections next month.

The forecast for today's Packers-Giants game calls for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain. Winds are expected to come in at 10-20 mph. Aaron Rodgers and Co. are used to this type of weather. But Daniel Jones told ESPN's Jordan Raanan that he's never played in snow. Keep that in mind when making lineup decisions.

Panthers CB James Bradberry is inactive for today's game against the Packers with a groin injury. That improves the matchup for Green Bay WR Davante Adams. DT Vernon Butler (back) is active after arriving questionable. Butler's not much of an IDP option, though.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is active for today’s game against the Chargers. He’s been out since Week 4 and remained limited in practice this week, so there’s elevated risk here. But it’d be tough to keep Adams on fantasy benches. We haven’t heard anything about his snaps being limited today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Packers are "planning" on WR Davante Adams (toe) playing against the Chargers on Sunday. "They’ll likely put him through a workout to test it," Rapoport adds. So it sounds like a final decision might not come until just before inactives are announced around 3 pm ET. You can pencil Adams into fantasy lineups, but make sure to have a late-game backup option rostered just in case he ends up inactive.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers after a limited week of practice. HC Matt LaFleur was non-committal on Adams’ availability on Friday, but the Green Bay media expects him to play this weekend.

We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is inactive for tonight's game against the Chiefs. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Adams is expected back next week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) won't play against the Chiefs tonight but adds that Adams is expected back for Week 9. We'll track his practice participation this coming week for clues on how close Adams is to 100%, but he figures to return to must-start status.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs. It's at least an upgrade over the past 3 weeks, when Adams was ruled out on Friday. He seemingly has a shot to return for Week 9. With Adams out last week, the snaps rates for Packers WRs went: Allen Lazard 84%, Jake Kumerow 71%, Geronimo Allison 55%, Marquez Valdes-Scantling 34%. Allison and MVS are healthier now, but it's uncertain if they'll play more on Sunday night. We'd try to avoid this situation in what figures to be a run-leaning game plan for Green Bay.
