Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams finished second in the league behind Julio Jones (170) with 169 targets last season. If QB Aaron Rodgers has his way in 2019, Adams will be even more involved.
'I'd like to throw to Davante more. He's that open. We've got to keep finding ways to get him the ball. 'I think Marquez (Valdes-Scantling) has had a fantastic spring and really stepped up as a guy who can be an every-down player, and then I expect a big bounce-back year from Jimmy (Graham). He's healthy, he's feeling good. This offense I think fits him and his body type, but I'm not going to shy away from throwing the ball to Davante,' Rodgers told ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Huddle Up: No one is going to fault Adams getting more looks, especially after he set career highs across the board with 111 catches, 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2018. He's finished with double-digit touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and is obviously the favorite target of the best quarterback in the game. If he can stay healthy, there's no reason why he can't repeat or exceed what he did last year in what should be a more creative offense under first-year coach Matt LaFleur.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said he hopes to receive some playing time at slot receiver under head coach Matt LaFleur because it could create some favorable matchups in the passing game for the team.
Huddle Up: Adams is one of the better receivers in the NFL and could improve on his stats in 2019 if he is not covered by the opponent's top cornerback as a slot receiver. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues next season.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17. The Packers did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Adams probably will be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. He should be a starting option if he plays, but owners will need other options available in case he is ruled out.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams is not practicing Thursday, Dec. 27. He was working off to the side with trainers.
Huddle Up: Adams has already said he expects to play as he threatens the Packers' single-season receptions mark. He's currently the top PPR fantasy wide receiver this year and can be drafted as such next offseason.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) said he expects to play in the Week 17 game even though he missed practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Adams is able to practice this week. He can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues if he plays.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) was not able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 26, due to a right knee ailment. Adams does expect to be able to play in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Adams needs two catches to break the Packers' single-season record, so he'll be on the field at least for a portion of the season finale. Keep him in your starting lineup if you're still in the fantasy playoffs.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught 11 of his 18 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in a 44-38 win over the New York Jets in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Adams has been Aaron Rodgers's go-to option all year, and all the targets make him one of the safest fantasy options at the receiver position.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams registered eight receptions for 119 yards and 13 targets in Week 15 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Adams snagged that last grab in the final minutes of regulation to send him over the hump for triple-digit yardage, helping fantasy owners to a bonus in some leagues. The Packers will travel to meet the Jets in Week 16, and Adams remains a solid low-end WR1 or must-start WR2.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams posted seven receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Week 14 against the Atlanta Falcons, scoring for a third straight week.
Huddle Up: Adams has emerged as a fantasy star this season, posting 1,186 receiving yards with 12 touchdowns. He has at least four grabs in each to make him a friend of the PPR owner, too. The Packers travel to meet the Bears in Week 15. He had five grabs for 88 yards and a score in the first meeting in Week 1.

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams caught five of his eight targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in a 24-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.
Huddle Up: It was the 10th touchdown of the year for Adams, and it seems like every week he is either topping 100 yards or finding the end zone. His status as the go-to target for Aaron Rodgers should keep that trend going the rest of the year.
