News: 8 hours agoAdams caught nine of 13 targets for 101 yards in Sunday's 32-23 win over the Broncos.
Spin: He also added four yards on one carry. Adams continues to enjoy his reunion with Derek Carr, topping 100 receiving yards in two of four games as a Raider so far, and his volume was especially impressive in this one as Carr managed to throw for only 188 yards in total on the afternoon. Adams saw his TD streak end at three games to begin the season, but he'll look to start a new one in Week 5 in an AFC West clash with Kansas City.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Adams was traded to the Raiders after spending his first eight seasons with the Packers. One of the safest players in fantasy for more than a half decade, Adams has finished no worse than 10th in fantasy PPG each of the last six seasons. That includes three top-three finishes in fantasy points over the last four seasons. Adams is an elite talent and he'll still be heavily targeted by college teammate Derek Carr, but we obviously need to lower expectations a bit. Carr is solid, but he's not Aaron Rodgers and we also can't assume he'll be in the 97th percentile in target share, which is where he's been the past four seasons. Adams also has more competition for targets, he's now 29 years old and he tends to miss the occasional game or two. It's safest to view Adams as a mid-range WR1 rather than the elite play he's been in recent years.
