Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs SF (16 / 10 / 132 / 2 rec)
Davante Adams caught 10 of 16 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Simply put, Adams was the difference maker in this game along with Marquise Goodwin for the 49ers. Adams got his big day started with a touchdown catch in the first quarter where Rodgers found him open in the back of the end zone on a crossing route. Adams made a key catch with the Packers driving late in the fourth quarter, down 30-23. Adams ran a deep post route from the right side of the formation all the way across the field and Rodgers was able to find him behind the 49ers defense for a 38 yard gain that put the Packers in scoring position. Three plays later, Adams ran a stutter-step go-route to the left side of the end zone, where Rodgers threw a perfect ball that took advantage of Adams impressive leaping ability. Rodgers put the ball in a great spot where only Adams could get it, and Adams secured the catch for a tying touchdown.
2018 Week 5 vs DET (12 / 9 / 140 / 1 rec)
Davante Adams caught nine passes for 140 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets. With Cobb and Allison out with injuries, Adams took on an even bigger role in the passing game, although I would have thought he'd see more than 12 targets on a day when Rodgers threw the ball 52 times. Despite working against Darius Slay for most of the afternoon, Adams was consistently getting open and creating plays after the catch. This was especially true when plays broke down and Adams was free to get to an open spot so Rodgers could find him. He did this really well on a passing play where Rodgers was flushed out of the pocket and running to his left. Adams broke off his shallow route and took off to the left sideline, peeling his way up the field slightly as he did so. Rodgers found him and Adams was able to gain another 10 yards after the catch for a 22 yard gain. Additionally, Adams was able to create plays of 22, 23, 30, 17 and 19 yards, while also having a 32 yard catch overturned. Adams touchdown catch came on a double move from the Lions 12 yard line. Adams set up the route as though he was going to run a shallow in-route, but at the apex, he put his foot in the ground, changed direction and took off the for the left sideline. The fake worked perfectly and Adams was wide open as Rodgers hit him for a 12 yard touchdown. Adams now has touchdown in four of the Packers five games this season.
2018 Week 4 vs BUF (14 / 8 / 81 / 0 rec)
Allison caught six passes for 80 yards on 11 targets in the Packers win on Sunday. The 11 targets set a career high for the third year wideout, and it comes as Allison is continuing to gain Rodgers trust in the passing game. With Randall Cobb on the sideline for this game, it was interesting to see the types of routes that Allison would be running, as it would serve as a good indication of what the Packers think Allison can do, as opposed to just being the third option behind Adams and Cobb. Allison did not disappoint, running more deep routes than we had seen in the first three games while coming up with a big catch deep in the third quarter. With Allison lined up out wide on the left side of the formation, Rodgers took a deep drop out of the shotgun. Allison ran a deep crossing route, and seeing how much room was out in front of him in the middle of the field, Allison kept running his route which gave Rodgers the perfect window to throw it to him in stride. The catch went for a 27 yard gain, and although it was the only deep ball he was able to come down with, it was encouraging to see Allison get targeted on four of his 11 targets down the field.
2018 Week 3 vs WAS (9 / 7 / 52 / 1 rec)
Davante Adams caught seven passes for 52 yards and a touchdown on nine targets against the Redskins on Sunday. Adams had a hard time finding room on intermediate and deep routes, as the Redskins were blanketing him and forcing Randall Cobb to beat them deep. Adams did secure catches when the passes were thrown his way, but it seemed as soon as he caught the ball, he was set upon by several Redskins defenders. Even when he could shake the first guy, there was always another one waiting. Adams does most of his damage after the catch and in the red zone, and he managed to score a touchdown in his third straight game to start the season. Adams ran a shallow crossing route at the four yard line and was able to shake his defender and carry him across the goal line. There weren't many highlights for Adams in this game, as the entire Packers offense was forced into playing with the Redskins gave them.
2018 Week 2 vs MIN (12 / 8 / 64 / 1 rec)
Davante Adams caught eight passes for 64 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets in the Packers tie against the Vikings on Sunday. Adams led the team in receptions, although he averaged only eight yards a catch on the day, a small number even by Adams standards. Adams came up with the only score on the day for the Packers, as well as the catch that set up the touchdown as well. With the Vikings blitzing both linebackers, the Packers were able to give Rodgers time in the pocket, which he took full advantage of by dancing around and never making himself an easy target. Adams ran a shallow in-route from the right side of the field and instead of cutting off his route, he just kept on running across the field while creating enough separation to allow Rodgers to deliver the ball in front of him. With the ball now at the nine yard line, Adams ran an out-route from the left sideline. Rodgers delivered the pass as Adams was turning which gave him enough time to catch the ball and turn on his defender in space. Adams then juked his defender and another Vikings defender towards the middle of the field before scoring nearly untouched.
2018 Week 1 vs CHI (8 / 5 / 88 / 1 rec)
Davante Adams caught five passes on eight targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Packers thrilling win against the Bears in week one. Adams looked the part of a #1 receiver, making contested plays and gaining yards after the catch. Adams long gain of the night came on a 51 yard reception where he came down with a catch on the left sideline, and while staying in bounds, he pushed his defender away and turned the ball up field, gaining another 40 yards after the catch. Adams was not done bullying the Bears defense yet though, as his touchdown catch showed why he is so hard to bring down. Adams caught a short pass in the left flat and turned to find three Bears defenders between himself and the end zone. Adams planted his right foot and faked to the inside of the field before cutting back to the sideline and taking a Bears defender head on. Adams managed to push his defender backward and score on a play that looked like it should have been a two yard gain.
