Davante Adams Looking To Repeat Big Performance

Friday, September 29, 5:05 PM

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams put up his best line of the season with 13 receptions for 172 yards and two touchdowns on 20 targets against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Adams follows up his massive performance with a matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers defense has given up the most passing yards, third-most passing touchdowns, and third-highest yards per attempt. Through three games, Adams has the second-highest targets per route run percentage among wide receivers, with at least 50 routes per Jacob Gibbs. Adams is primed for another big performance on Sunday. Fantasy managers should watch Jimmy Garoppolo's status for the game since the Raiders quarterback is still in the concussion protocol. Garoppolo targeted Adams on 20 of his 44 pass attempts, and the game plan should be the same in a game where the Raiders may need to pass to keep pace with the Chargers offense. If Garoppolo cannot suit up, Adams will have to rely on veteran Brian Hoyer or rookie Aidan O'Connell to throw passes to him. Without Garoppolo, Adams could have a lower ceiling, but he is a locked-and-loaded WR1 regardless of who is behind center.

Deebo Samuel Doesn't Practice On Friday

Friday, September 29, 5:53 PM

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (ribs, knee) didn't practice on Friday, marking his third consecutive absence. The 27-year-old caught six of his 12 targets for 129 yards and a touchdown versus the Giants in Week 3. However, he's now riding a questionable tag, although there's a good chance he won't be out there in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals. Fortunately, Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) practiced in full on Friday, so he'd be in line to see more looks from Brock Purdy if Samuel doesn't suit up. But as always, fantasy managers should monitor things leading up to kickoff on Sunday.
