Player Outlook
You might lower expectations for Adams in 2024, but not to the point where you'll want to ignore him. Proof of his dynamite production came at the beginning and the end of last season: Adams did well in his first three games (25.1 PPR point average) before Jimmy Garoppolo got concussed, then the Raiders season fell apart and the offense struggled until the final four weeks when Aidan O'Connell got comfortable (19.7 PPR point average). The film will also show that Adams is still explosive, but he clearly needs adequate quarterback play. To that end, O'Connell will battle Gardner Minshew for the starting job this preseason. The two passers had nearly identical efficiency metrics in 2023 but neither one was particularly good, save for O'Connell in his last four. Even if O'Connell improved a little bit this offseason then he should earn the job and have a chance to help Adams achieve quality stats. And even if it's Minshew, at least you know he pushed Michael Pittman to a 16.5 PPR per-game average in his 12 complete games in Indy. Draft Adams with 16 PPR point expectations (probably closer to 9.5 non-PPR points) starting in late Round 2.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Intends to remain with Las Vegas

    Adams said Sunday at his annual youth football camp that he intends to play for the Raiders next season, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports. There was some speculation early in the offseason that the Raiders could pursue trading their star wideout, but GM Tom Telesco shot that idea down in late February. Adams' comments Sunday seem to solidify the expectation that he'll remain with Las Vegas for a third campaign in 2024. Adams reached the 100-reception mark for the fourth straight season in 2023, but his 1,144 receiving yards and eight receiving touchdowns were his lowest totals since 2019, when he played in only 12 games due to a toe injury.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: No trade planned

    Raiders GM Tom Telesco said Tuesday that Adams won't be traded this offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Adams has three seasons remaining on his contract, including a full guarantee on his $16.89 million base salary for 2024. The number is reasonable enough that he'd have considerable trade value, but it sounds like the Raiders are more inclined to keep him around, figuring the 31-year-old wideout can not only help them win games but also help ease the transition for whoever ends up playing quarterback. That said, Telesco might change his mind if another team makes a strong offer.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Won't be disciplined by league

    The NFL will not discipline Adams for the 2022 incident in which he shoved a photographer following a loss to Kansas City, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Adams pushed a photographer as he was leaving the field following the 2022 defeat, and the star wideout was originally charged with misdemeanor assault. That charge was later dismissed, but the NFL's investigation into the incident remained open. It now appears that the league's probe has been closed, with a decision to not dole out any discipline to Adams. From a fantasy perspective, that means managers won't have to ponder whether Adams will need to miss any games as a result of the incident, though his 2024 ADP may be due for a drop after he posted his lowest receiving yardage and touchdown totals in four years this season.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Scores to end season

    Adams caught five of eight targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-14 win over the Broncos. Adams hauled in a three-yard touchdown to close the second quarter, marking his eighth score of the season. With five grabs, Adams also topped the 100-catch plateau for the fourth straight year, finishing the campaign with 103 receptions on 175 targets for 1,144 yards and the aforementioned eight TDs. Even with inconsistent quarterback play, Adams remains one of the league's most impactful wideouts, making him a reliable commodity heading into the offseason.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Massive numbers in Indy

    Adams caught 13 of 21 targets for 126 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Colts. The wideout was by far Aidan O'Connell's favorite target on the afternoon, as Jakobi Meyers was a distant second on the Raiders with a 6-56-0 line on 10 targets. Adams has topped the century mark in yards and gotten into the end zone in two of the last three games, and the late-season surge has left him just two catches short of his fifth career campaign with 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards. While his future with the Raiders remains uncertain and the team has been eliminated from the postseason, expect Adams to at least play enough in Week 18 against the Broncos to reach that milestone.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Quiet performance in Week 16

    Adams gathered in just one of six targets for four yards during Monday's 20-14 win in Kansas City. Chiefs cornerback L'Jarius Sneed had the unenviable task of covering Adams, and the result was the wide receiver's quietest outing of the season. It was a far cry from the 8-101-1 line on 12 targets that Adams put together in a Week 15 win against the Chargers, and he also remains 28 yards shy of his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard campaign with two games to play in the regular season. He'll look to get back on track Sunday at Indianapolis.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Vintage performance in win

    Adams brought in eight of 12 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 63-21 win over the Chargers on Thursday night. Adams led the Raiders in receptions, receiving yards and targets across the board in the completely unexpected offensive breakout from a team that had been shut out just four days earlier. The perennial Pro Bowl wideout contributed to the jaw-dropping point total with a three-yard scoring grab on a pass from Jakobi Meyers that capped the opening drive of the second half and served as Adams' fourth touchdown of the campaign. Adams' yardage total also qualified as his second highest of the campaign and second one over the century mark, affording him plenty of momentum going into a Week 16 divisional road showdown against the Chiefs on Christmas Day.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Suits up Thursday

    Adams (illness) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. Adams approached the game listed as questionable after an illness led to him being deemed a non-participant in Wednesday's walk-through session, but now that his Week 15 availability has been confirmed, the wideout should be able to maintain his high-volume role in the Raiders' passing game. Through 13 games this season, Adams leads the team with a PPR-friendly 76 catches (on 128 targets) for 867 yards and four touchdowns.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Expected to go Thursday

    Adams (illness) remains listed as questionable but is expected to play Thursday against the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Adams is carrying an injury designation into the Week 15 contest after an illness prevented him from participating in Wednesday's walk-through session, but whatever ailment the receiver is battling doesn't seem to be anything that will keep him off the field Thursday. Official confirmation on Adams' availability will arrive approximately 90 minutes before the game's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, when Las Vegas will release its inactive list. Raiders interim coach Antonio Pierce has been non-committal on a starting quarterback for Thursday, but the expectation is that Adams will be working with rookie Aidan O'Connell for the sixth game in a row.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Feeling ill, deemed questionable

    Adams missed Wednesday's practice with an illness and is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Chargers. Adams previously wasn't listed on the Week 15 injury report, so he may have first started feeling ill either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. With limited information on Adams' situation, fantasy managers should track his status carefully before inserting him into lineups this week. It's also unclear if Aidan O'Connell or Jimmy Garoppolo will be the starting quarterback for Las Vegas on Thursday.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Leading receiver in Week 14 loss

    Adams caught seven of 10 targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Vikings. The Raiders' offense couldn't get anything going in the NFL's lowest-scoring game since 2007, but Adams still saw solid target volume and was the team's leading receiver. He's seen double-digit targets in three of the last four games, but Sunday's yardage was his lowest output in that stretch. Adams will look to take advantage of a good Week 15 matchup against the Chargers, who he posted an 8-75-0 line against on 13 targets in their first meeting this season.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Steady production with rookie QB

    Adams had five receptions on seven targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Kansas City. Adams finished a close second in receiving for Las Vegas on Sunday behind fellow starter Jakobi Meyers (6-79-1), with both receivers finishing in a tie for the team lead with seven targets apiece. Rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell has shown good rapport with Adams since taking over as the Raiders' starter back in Week 9, producing averages of 5.5 catches and 68.8 receiving yards for the veteran superstar since the switch was made under center. Adams will get to rest during Las Vegas' upcoming bye week before resuming play against the Vikings on Dec. 10.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    Adams rebounded the past two games against the Jets and Dolphins with at least 14.6 PPR points in each outing. He had 26 targets over that span with 13 catches for 168 yards and a touchdown, and this was after he scored 7.4 PPR points or less in two games against the Lions in Week 8 and the Giants in Week 9. But I'm expecting him to struggle in Week 12 against the Chiefs with a tough matchup against Kansas City cornerback L'Jarius Sneed. He's been stellar of late and helped limit No. 1 receivers like A.J. Brown (1.8 PPR points), Tyreek Hill (14.5 PPR points), Courtland Sutton (10.9 PPR points) and Keenan Allen (9.5 PPR points) in the past four games. Adams is still a borderline starter in all leagues, but he should struggle in this matchup with the Chiefs.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Paces pass catchers in loss

    Adams secured seven of 13 targets for 82 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 20-13 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. Adams led the Raiders in receptions, receiving yards and targets in the contest, and he added his fourth touchdown of the campaign and first since Week 3 on a 46-yard grab on the final play of the first quarter. Adams has encouragingly been more involved since the switch to Antonio Pierce and Aidan O'Connell at head coach and quarterback, respectively, posting a 17-202-1 line on 33 targets in that three-game span. Adams will have a chance to keep building momentum in a Week 12 home showdown against the Chiefs.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Commands 13 targets on SNF

    Adams converted 13 targets into six receptions for 86 yards in Sunday's 16-12 win over the Jets. Adams finally returned to form after tallying just five receptions for 45 yards over his previous two starts. The superstar wideout led Las Vegas in every receiving category minus touchdowns, as the team's only TD went to rookie tight end Michael Mayer, who caught the only offensive touchdown from either side in the contest. Las Vegas' quarterback situation isn't ideal for a receiver of Adams' talent level, but he should continue receiving healthy target totals while developing chemistry with rookie starter Aidan O'Connell in the second half of the season. The starting QB/WR duo could find themselves busy if the Raiders hope to outscore Miami's high-flying offense next Sunday.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Bust Alert (Start/Sit)

    We thought Adams getting a change in quarterback from Jimmy Garoppolo to Aidan O'Connell would help in Week 9 against the Giants, but Adams once again posted a minimal stat line with four catches for 34 yards on seven targets. He's now scored 8.5 PPR points or less in four of his past five games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 3. I'm still hopeful for a strong finish to the season for Adams, but he's just a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in most leagues in Week 10 against the Jets. This secondary is No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, and Stefon Diggs in Week 1 is the lone receiver to score a touchdown against the Jets this year.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Paltry results with new QB

    Adams had four receptions on seven targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Giants. Adams' recent woes in fantasy continued Sunday with another pedestrian receiving line, this time with new starting quarterback Aidan O'Connell under center. The rookie signal-caller performed adequately as the Raiders picked up the win in interim head coach Antonio Pierce's first game taking over for Josh McDaniels. Adams was left out of the party despite leading the team in targets, having to deal with double and even triple teams on occasion Sunday. The star receiver is averaging just 3.6 receptions and 35.2 receiving yards with no touchdowns over his last five appearances. Adams' cold stretch has stagnated his season line at 51-573-3 following a hot start to the fantasy campaign. The superstar's combination of talent and targets should keep him in fantasy starting lineups for next Sunday's matchup against the Jets.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: One catch on seven targets

    Adams caught one of seven targets for 11 yards in Monday's 26-14 loss to the Lions. Adams was held without a catch in the first half as Jimmy Garoppolo mustered only 31 first-half passing yards in the quarterback's return from a back injury. The star receiver finally got into the box score with an 11-yard catch on the first play of the second half, but that was his only reception, even though Adams was the only Raider with more than four targets in this one. Garoppolo finished with just 126 yards and missed an open Adams a few times, including on a deep ball in the fourth quarter that would have produced a touchdown with an accurate throw. Las Vegas has been intent on keeping Adams ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, and assuming the team doesn't have a last-minute change of heart in that regard, Adams will hope for better play from Garoppolo in Week 9 against the Giants.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Seven grabs in Sunday's loss

    Adams caught seven of 12 targets for 57 yards in Sunday's 30-12 loss to the Bears. The three-time All-Pro receiver led the Raiders in receiving yards while seeing double-digit targets for the first time since Week 4, but the volume didn't result in outstanding numbers, with the aging Brian Hoyer getting the start under center in place of Jimmy Garoppolo (back). Garoppolo is expected back in Week 8 against the Lions, but Adams has still been held under 60 yards in three straight games, and Las Vegas' issues on offense extend beyond the health of the team's starting QB.

  • Raiders' Davante Adams: Practices fully Thursday

    Adams (shoulder) returned to a full practice Thursday. Adams, who has been managing a shoulder issue of late, was limited Wednesday, but his return to all activity one day later sets the stage for the Raiders' top wideout to start Sunday against the Bears alongside Jakobi Meyers. Per Paul Gutierrez of, Adams acknowledged some frustration Wednesday about having seen a combined nine targets over his last two games, but chances are the Raiders will look to get him the ball more in the coming weeks. However, this weekend, Adams figures to be catching passes from either Brian Hoyer or Aidan O'Connell, with starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo (back) expected to be out versus Chicago.
