News: 6 days agoAdams had five receptions on seven targets for 73 yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Kansas City.
Spin: 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.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Adams is back for Year 2 with the Raiders after another elite performance in 2022. The ex-Packer paced all WRs in target share (32%) and air yards (2,137) en route to his third consecutive top 3 fantasy campaign. In fact, Adams hasn't finished lower than third in target share or sixth in fantasy PPG since 2017. Adams' role changed a bit last season (more downfield targets), which led to an ugly 56% catch rate, but he figures to revert back to seeing more high percentage looks with conservative Jimmy Garoppolo replacing Derek Carr under center. Adams is now 30 years old, but likely still has another season or two of elite play in the tank. He's a midrange WR1.
