2019 Week 10 vs CAR (10 / 7 / 118 / 0 rec - 15.3 points, $7800)
Davante Adams caught seven passes for 118 yards on 10 targets in the Packers win over the Panthers on Sunday. This was a get-right game for Adams, who looked a step slow in last week's return to action after missing four games with an injury. While the Panthers were without James Bradberry, I'm not sure it would have mattered as Adams came out of the gates strong in this game, forcing a deep pass interference penalty before setting up Jones' first touchdown run with a 15 yard catch. Rodgers went right back to Adams on the Packers next drive, hitting him on a 37 yard completion where Adams made a ridiculous catch. The ball was placed perfectly by Rodgers, but perhaps too well, as the ball's trajectory literally went through Adams' defenders arms forcing Adams to look it in the entire time before snagging the reception. Adams was far from done though, as he and Rodgers hooked up again for a 38 yard reception that came with Rodgers backed up into his own end zone. Adams ran a double-move that looked like an inside post, before he broke back outside and Rodgers hit him perfectly in stride along the left sideline.
2019 Week 9 vs LAC (11 / 7 / 41 / 0 rec - 7.6 points, $8000)
Davante Adams made his return from injury this week, catching seven of 11 targets for 41 yards. Adams looked a bit rusty in his first game back, dropping a pass from Rodgers that is usually an easy catch for the star receiver. The Chargers defense kept constant pressure on Rodgers, ensuring that Adams was going to be confined to short and intermediate routes. When he did make a catch, the Chargers secondary was all over him, and you could see the frustration building as Adams just could not shake his defenders when Rodgers had such little time to throw. The Packers face off against the Carolina Panthers and their talented secondary next week, so it won't get any easier for Adams in week 10. We will see whether another full week of practice can get Adams and the Packers passing offense back in their groove of weeks past.
2019 Week 4 vs PHI (15 / 10 / 180 / 0 rec - 23 points, $8000)
Davante Adams caught 10 passes for 180 yards on 15 targets in the Packers loss to the Eagles. From the catches to the yards to the targets, this was the type of production that we expected from Adams when he was touted as a first round pick this year, and a player many expected to be the #1 wide receiver comes years end. Adams really could have put an exclamation point on this performance with a touchdown, but he was caught on the back of the leg on a desperation tackle during a 58 yard catch and run. The play was a simple go-route where Rodgers threw the ball out in front of Adams and he was able to run right by his defender and not be touched until he went down at the Eagle seven yard line. Adams also had a 40 yard catch, and was able to draw three pass interference penalties against the Eagles secondary. The majority of Adams catches were in the short and intermediate passing game, where he excels by creating separation through his strength and route-running chops. While Adams had a monster game and that is what we should be talking about, I find myself talking more about the final play of the game where Adams should have been targeted instead of the tall but slight Valdes-Scalding. We are talking about the only wide receiver in the NFL with 10+ touchdowns in the last three seasons (37 total). Adams has yet to have a touchdown catch this season and was only targeted twice in the red zone over the first three weeks. He did have four red zone targets against the Eagles and did not score, however I would rather play the numbers and think Adams would be successful than point to that as a reason not to target him on the most important play of the game. The play call was a slant to the outside receiver where you know the Eagles are going to be crowded across the goal line in the short field. Essentially, that is why you have Adams, and he has more than proven himself capable of making big plays when it matters most, especially on a night where he was feasting on the Eagles banged up secondary. The Packers have been committed to the running game but now find themselves with some real depth problems, so Adams could see even more targets as a possession receiver moving forward.
2019 Week 3 vs DEN (4 / 4 / 56 / 0 rec - 7.6 points, $8200)
Davante Adams caught four passes for 56 yards in the Packers win over the Broncos on Sunday. Adams was not targeted at his usual volume, but he did catch all four passes thrown his way. The Broncos shaded coverage his way and made the other Packers receivers beat them, which would have worked aside from an offside penalty that came back to bite them on a deep Valdes-Scalding touchdown catch. Adams was routinely targeted in the short passing game, and in that respect, he did well gaining yards after the catch. He was targeted once deeper down the field which resulted in a 22 yard reception, but the play was called back after Denver challenged the play due to offensive pass interference.
2019 Week 2 vs MIN (9 / 7 / 106 / 0 rec - 14.1 points, $8200)
Adams is in midseason form, moving around the field and making plays on the ball in the air with ease. He got open downfield on the first pass of the game and was Aaron Rodgers preferred target on third down. He came up with multiple key conversions in the game and Adams last catch iced the game for the Packers. He also drew a long pass interference and another long pass took a great defensive play to break up. He's fine after a quiet Week 1.
2019 Week 1 vs CHI (8 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec - 5.6 points, $8700)
Davante Adams caught four passes for 36 yards on eight targets in the Packers win over the Bears on Thursday night. Dating back to last year, Adams has been immune to the Packers offensive struggles, consistently putting up big numbers regardless of whether Green Bay is able to move the ball on their opponent. This was not the case against the Bears though, as Adams finished with his lowest yardage total in his past 20 regular season games. Rodgers targeted Adams a team high eight times, but even the passes that fell incomplete were contained to within 12 yards of the line of scrimmage. There were some growing pains to be expected with the Packers installing a new offense under first year head coach Matt LaFleur, so Adams inability to match the output many were expecting of him this year should be taken with a grain of salt, especially against an elite defense and division rival in the Bears.
