Week 5
On the 1st couple drives, the Bengals were getting pressure on Aaron Rodgers while Chidobe Awuzie looked solid in defending Adams. That lasted just a few minutes, as the dynamic duo of Adams and Rodgers completely took the game over and the WR posted almost 19 yards per catch. Adams saw 16 of the QB’s 39 passes in a wild game that required big plays, leading to a 200-yard performance, which was a career high.

After a ‘slow’ start to the yeast when Adams had ‘just’ 16 targets in the first 2 games, he’s averaged 15 over the last 3 weeks, and he’s reclaimed this crown as the highest floor WR in the game with the only player challenging him for ceiling is Tyreek Hill. Even though Aaron Rodgers is throwing about 33 passes per game, Adams’ target share is through the roof. It should continue to be that way going forward.
Week 4
Adams caught 6 of his team-high 11 targets for 64 yards on Sunday. It was his second straight double-digit target game. He's seen 7 or more in every game.

Going forward, Adams remains an elite option that sees a ton of quality targets from one of the best QBs the NFL has ever seen. There is little reason to doubt him the rest of the way.
Week 3
Another week, another absolutely massive performance by Adams. The guy appeared to be severely injured late in the game but only missed one play before returning to help lead the last-minute comeback.

Adams had 18 targets in this game -- yes 18 targets, for a 55% target share. He finished the night with 12 catches for 132 yards and 1 TD.

The Steelers are on deck for Adams. Though usually a tough matchup, they have surrendered 5 WR TDs already on the season. Adams, of course, is an easy fantasy start regardless of matchup.

We have him ranked at the overall PPR WR1 against the Steelers this weekend and for the rest of the season.
Week 2
Adams remains an absolute stud. He saw a team-high 9 targets, catching 8 for 121 yards. He remains a primary focus of QB Aaron Rodgers.

A season ago, Adams had 9 or more targets a staggering 12 times. Going forward, there is little reason to doubt he will get into the double digits often. While the Packers will find opportunities to exploit matchups they can attack, Adams will always be the focal point.
Week 1
When you see Adams’ stat line of 5-56 on 7 targets, you’re obviously disappointed. However, when you put it into context that Aaron Rodgers only threw for 133 yards, it makes you realize that Adams accounted for 42% of the team’s receiving production. Adams will get immediate redemption as the Packers play the Lions in Week 2 who just surrendered 189 receiving yards to Deebo Samuel in the opener.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Even though he missed 2 games and left a 3rd early, Adams still led the league with 28.3% target share last season. For his 15 full games -- including the playoffs -- Adams grabbed a 33.2% share.
    • For the regular season, Stefon Diggs (27.85%), DeAndre Hopkins (27.83%) and Darren Waller (26.3%) were the only other players to reach 25%.
  • In 2019, Adams drew 29.7% target share in his 14 games (including playoffs). In 2018, it was 28.2% over his 15 contests.
  • Last season, Adams was the only Packer to exceed 63 targets. Aaron Jones and Marquez Valdes-Scantling tied for 2nd on the team with that number. Then came Robert Tonyan at 59. No other Packer reached 50.
  • The biggest additions for this year’s pass-catching corps: 3rd-round rookie WR Amari Rodgers and 2020 opt-out WR Devin Funchess.
  • Adams is likely to see some regression from his 15.7% TD rate last season, but that ranked him just 13th among wideouts with 30+ targets.
  • Adams has been heavily targeted in the end zone over the past 3 seasons. According to Pro Football Focus, he ranked 4th in the league in end-zone targets in 2018, tied for 9th in 2019 (when he missed 4 games) and tied for 3rd last year.
  • Adams has showed just how volatile production can be in that area even with Aaron Rodgers as your QB: He caught 6 of 17 end-zone looks in 2018 (35.3%), 2 of 11 in 2019 (18.2%) and then 11 of 16 last year (68.75%).
  • That was the biggest factor in Adams outsourcing the nearest WR (Tyreek Hill) by 3.8 PPR points per game last year.
  • Adams still checked in 1st and 5th the previous 2 seasons in PPR points per game.
  • Among WRs with 300+ targets over the past 3 seasons, Adams ranks 10th in catch rate (69.4%). Last year’s 77.2% beat his previous high by 11.5 percentage points.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Adams should dominate target share no matter who’s behind center for the Packers this season. He’ll almost definitely see a significant decline in TDs, though, and probably see his catch rate fall. If Aaron Rodgers decides not to throw the passes, the impact could be even greater. Let’s hope we get that question answered, at least, before August drafts. Until then, Adams obviously carries more risk than he would with Rodgers harmony.

The Packers and WR Davante Adams have broken off contract-extension talks and are "in a bad place," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. There's no mention of a holdout here, but it's obviously not an ideal situation with training camp about to get going. We'll see where this goes. It's still unclear, of course, whether Adams and the Packers will have QB Aaron Rodgers this season.

Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) isn’t listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and limited again on Friday. Even at less than 100%, Adams remains a must-start against the Colts this weekend.

After being limited on Wednesday, Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. He was able to play through this injury last weekend. So he either just got a rest day or aggravated the injury on Thursday. We'll hopefully have a better idea of his Week 11 status by Friday afternoon.

Packers WR Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He tweaked that ankle in last week's win over the Jaguars but was able to play through it. He should be fine for Sunday's game against the Colts, but we'll keep a close eye on him.
