Shark Bites

Packers HC Mike McCarthy likes what he's seen from WR Davante Adams this summer. “Davante’s having a very good camp,” McCarthy said. “That’s what you see; he’s healthy and he’s taken a step." Beat writer reports via Twitter have been all over the map on Adams' training camp performance. He hauled in 2 balls for 37 yards in 21 snaps in Thursday night's 2nd preseason game. With Jeff Janis sidelined by a broken hand and Ty Montgomery still working his way back from ankle surgery, Adams is the heavy favorite to open the season as Green Bay's #3 WR. That alone makes him worth a look late in fantasy drafts.

Recent Shark Bites

Packers WR Davante Adams has been activated from the COVID list. He'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs -- albeit without QB Aaron Rodgers. In 8 games Rodgers missed all or most of back in 2017 (with Brett Hundley under center), Adams averaged 8.9 targets, 5.8 catches, 68 yards and .6 TDs. See where he sits in the Week 9 WR Rankings.

Packers WRs Davante Adams and Allen Lazard were not activated from the COVID list ahead of the 4 pm ET deadline and are out for tonight's game vs. the Cardinals. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (hamstring) was not activated from IR and is also out. Green Bay did activate WR Malik Taylor from the COVID list and elevated WR Juwann Winfree from the practice squad. So the Packers' WRs tonight are Randall Cobb, Equaniemous St. Brown, Amari Rodgers, Taylor and Winfree.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Packers WR Davante Adams (COVID) is "unlikely" to play vs. the Cardinals on Thursday night. Adams hasn't officially been ruled out yet, but he didn't travel with the team to Arizona on Wednesday and should be on fantasy benches. WR Allen Lazard is definitely out for Thursday night's game because he's unvaccinated.

The Packers have placed WR Davante Adams on the COVID list. With their Week 8 game coming Thursday night in Arizona, that almost certainly means Adams will miss the game, regardless of his particular situation. That leaves Green Bay without the guy who has drawn 33% of Aaron Rodgers' pass attempts to date. It also leaves Randall Cobb and Allen Lazard as the top wideouts, with Equanimeous St. Brown likely factoring in as well. We'll see whether WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is ready to come off IR.

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.
