Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 15 vs CAR (7 / 5 / 57 / 1 rec)
Adams made the first score of the game for the Packers on a leaping grab of a slightly long pass by Aaron Rodgers. Adams was pretty well open on the pass, and did a good job of hauling in a somewhat off-target throw for the score. Adams' two biggest plays were not ones where he had the ball in his hands, though. First, he was the target on a Rodgers interception which was badly thrown on a deep route in the second quarter. The second was when he was blasted on an illegal blindside hit by Carolina's Thomas Davis during another Rodgers interception. Adams missed the second half with a concussion and may not be ready to play the Vikings. Given his history of concussions, there should be concern.
2017 Week 14 vs CLE (14 / 10 / 84 / 2 rec)
Adams was a targeted just twice in the first half in part because of some good coverage by Cleveland and in part because quarterback Brett Hundley was looking elsewhere. The two just missed connecting on a big play late in the second quarter, but the pass was just off target. During the second half Adams was able to get free much more frequently as the Browns defense imploded. All of his yards came after he start of the half, including both touchdowns. The first touchdown came close to the end of the game and tied it, sending the teams into overtime. On the play, a short 1-yard score, Adams ran a simple out route, and his coverage stayed inside. Hundley did a nice job seeing that and throwing the ball to the outside shoulder where only Adams could make the catch. The second touchdown, taking place in overtime and winning the game, was almost all due to Adams' ability after the catch. The play was a short screen pass, thrown to Adams who ran behind Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. Both receivers did a great job creating a lane for Adams to create more yards with solid blocking, and then Adams broke into the open field and scored easily, running into the tunnel and disappearing with the ball. Adams continues to be Hundley's favorite target and as long as Hundley is under center, Adams is going to produce.
2017 Week 13 vs TB (6 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Adams was bound to have a stinker considering his quarterback, and this week just seemed to be the time. His 42 yards was exactly half of Brett Hundley's meager production, but that's not cause for celebration on a pyrrhic level, as he caught most of it in the early first quarter and then disappeared until the fourth.
2017 Week 12 vs PIT (9 / 5 / 82 / 1 rec)
Brett Hundley's favorite target had a solid day, including a very nice run after the catch on his 55-yard touchdown. On the play, Adams was in single coverage and torched his defender with a very nice double move, gaining nearly five yards of separation down the right sideline. The ball was slightly underthrown, so Adams had to slow down, but cut inside and made a defender miss before heading back upfield. Then a couple of head fakes made the defense hesitate just long enough for him to make it in the end zone and give his team a 21-14 lead. Adams has caught just over 61 percent of his targets since Hundley took over.
2017 Week 11 vs BAL (10 / 8 / 126 / 0 rec)
At least Brett Hundley still has a good rapport with at least one receiver. Davante Adams seems to find himself on the same page as Hundley more often than not, even if he failed to get in the end zone against Baltimore. Hundley did manage to miss Adams on a deep pass in the fourth quarter when Adams could have made a reception with a better thrown ball, but overall Adams was able to get open and Hundley was able to find him.
2017 Week 10 vs CHI (8 / 5 / 90 / 1 rec)
Brett Hundley has targeted Adams a lot, and it finally paid off. Adams was able to find separation for a couple of catches, most critically his 19-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal the win. On the play, Adams lined up inside, and ran a corner route. He got behind cornerback Kyle Fuller, and then Brett Hundley threw one of his better passes to Adams, a throw to the outside shoulder only Adams would catch. The two are on the same page, and Adams is starting to reap the benefits.
2017 Week 9 vs DET (10 / 7 / 53 / 0 rec)
Adams saw pretty good bracket of targets and was able to haul most of them in, but given the short-yardage nature of the gameplan, it amounted to very little. Adams can break free on longer routes, but Mike McCarthy doesn't seem to trust Brett Hundley to make those throws, which means Adams is generally in the neighborhood of a defender or two when he makes a catch, which keeps him from adding yards afterwards.
2017 Week 7 vs NO (5 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Adams couldn't do much on Sunday. While he had one nice route which allowed him to get open downfield, he was underthrown by Brett Hundley, who was completely overwhelmed under center. There wasn't much that Adams could do to help that on Sunday, and one can only hope the two develop some chemistry, and fast, during the bye week.
2017 Week 6 vs MIN (10 / 5 / 54 / 1 rec)
The only receiver able to find the end zone, Davante Adams found himself wide open in the second quarter as he ran a short slant route in the red zone of the Minnesota Vikings. Initially covered by a linebacker, Adams was able to wriggle free when the defender stepped up to help contain a scrambling Brett Hundley, and the second linebacker never picked up coverage. Hundley saw his receiver break open and quickly threw a pass to Adams, who easily scored.
2017 Week 5 vs DAL (11 / 7 / 66 / 2 rec)
Adams was recently in the concussion protocol but you wouldn't have known it by the game he played. Leading the team in both targets and catches, Adams was a key figure in both keeping pace with a Dallas team which was putting points on the board as well as winning the game. On the final offensive play of the game for Green Bay, Adams ran a short route into the end zone as Aaron Rodgers dropped back to pass. Rodgers saw Adams was covered but trusted his receiver and aimed a throw at Adams' backside shoulder. Adams went up and made the catch, making sure his feet landed in the end zone for what would be the game winning score. Adams continues to be the second weapon behind Jordy Nelson in this offense, occasionally outproducing Nelson when the latter is blanketed in coverage. He's proving that if a team chooses to do that, Adams will make them pay.
2017 Week 4 vs CHI (5 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)
Adams took a nasty hit from the Bears' Danny Trevathan, who has been suspended because of it. The blow was helmet to helmet, and Adams' teammates thought the worst, calling for the trainer. His neck MRI came back clean and he is 'only' dealing with a concussion and he could be week to week as he moves through concussion protocol.
2017 Week 3 vs CIN (6 / 3 / 60 / 0 rec)
Adams didn't get much done against the Bengals, though he did get brought down just shy of the goal line in the first quarter. With most of the targets in the second half going to Jordy Nelson and Ty Montgomery, Adams simply got lost in the shuffle.
2017 Week 2 vs ATL (10 / 8 / 99 / 1 rec)
With Jordy Nelson out the Packers needed someone to step up and in the second half, Adams did just that. Like everyone else, he was mostly shut down in the first two quarters but added five catches on six targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in the third and fourth quarter when the Falcons were comfortably in the lead and looser on defense. Adam's biggest play was a diving catch on a 33-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. On the play, he gained separation on the cornerback a with a nice cut, then streaked downfield. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw a deep ball which was just a tad long and Adams dove to catch it as he crossed into the end zone.
2017 Week 1 vs SEA (7 / 3 / 47 / 0 rec)
Adams was third in the pecking order among Packers wide receivers and struggled at times to reel in his targets. Overall he looked as good as he normally does--his routes are fine and he has speed--but he has to do better than miss half his targets especially with the amount of choices Aaron Rodgers has to throw to.
