Davante Adams has been incredible in limited action this season. He put up 14 catches for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns in Week 1. Unfortunately, Adams was only able to play 52 percent of the team's snaps in the following game due to a hamstring injury that subsequently sidelined him for Week 3.

Adams did practice on a limited basis on Thursday, though, and that should put him on track to play in Week 4's Monday Night Football matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

Davante Adams Fantasy Football Outlook

If Adams is active, you're obviously starting him. He's one of the best wide receivers in the league and is going up against one of the worst secondaries in football. Atlanta has surrendered the second-most passing yards per game (350.3) and its also giving up a league-high 3.00 passing touchdowns per game.

The only real drawback to starting Adams is the possibility that his fantasy managers won't know his status until after the Sunday games have concluded. Fantasy managers would be in quite the bind if Adams is a surprised inactive.

Adams managers should proceed as if he'll be active, but they should pick up a low-level Packers' wide receiver like Allen Lazard or Marques Valdez-Scantling just in case the stud wideout can't suit up.
